    Another good reason to quarantine those people.

      Europe with their effective no-borders obsession and dismal control of the EU’s borders should be very worried.

    “So we’re saying to the Pakistanis, the Syrians and the Cameroonians, ‘You’ve really got to get your acts together.’ ” “This is the countries of the world signaling that they will no longer tolerate the spread of the virus from the countries that aren’t finished.”

    Right. Just like it will no longer tolerate Russia’s land-grabbing thuggery and Syria’s chemical weapons and slaughter of innocents. I’m impressed! [yawn]

    What planet do people like this live on? Certainly not the real Earth.

      ‘You’ve really got to get your acts together.’ and if you don’t, we’re going to stamp our foot hard, beat our chests loudly, and pout. Meanwhile, all that the chattering classes can talk about today is the possible failure, in a couple of hundred years, of a plug in the Antarctic behind which is bottled up ice which would take a couple of thousand years to raise sea levels 10 feet! Those whom the Gods wish to destroy . . . .

    When the locals went out of their way to KILL the doctors administering the vaccine, it’s hopeless.

      We call that “instant karma.” It’s a real shame that we can’t rescue the poor slobs pushed around by the benighted just because the latter have guns and can kill them faster than diseases the latter think are biological warfare conducted by the west. Too bad we don’t do biological warfare. There ought to be a way to infect AK 47s with a fatal, fast-acting virus . . .

    Can this be traced to the decline in joinerism in America? Or is Rotary as healthy as ever?

    probably didn’t help that the CIA was able to confirm Bin Laden’s location with a fake vaccination campaign
