    They should be fighting terrorist and not Ebola. There is someone who was designed to fight the virus and that someone is not a soldier. If they are medic soldiers, well, i can consider but if not, i oppose

    If the so-called "US Troops & Military Personnel" are expert in this kind of field, i'd even tell my friends to support them but as far as i know, they are sent there for their training, for experience and for something that does not relate their job description. How are soldiers gonna fight Ebola? Shoot it with a gun? Perhaps, they can kill the virus from a single victim by shooting it with a grenade launcher -- which is really an ISIS thingy lol

    I'll support this. The reason they sent troops is for them to help the victims. Not to cure. Victims suffers so much and they need someone to assist and help them. The only thing i dont like is the troops getting the virus lol

    This is stupid. Look what happened to that Doctor who treat Ebola virus victims. Isn't a single person enough? I don't think the Gov't will be able to handle every victim if an Ebola virus outbreak happens

    The risk of soldiers getting infected is high. It's not like any communicable diseases! It's ebola and it's fucking serious. If that virus reached us. I dont know what the hell could possibly happen

    Chances of this US Troops getting infected is very high, despite the fact of them using safety precautions. Worse, they might bring and spread the virus in America

    What are they gonna do there? Shoot the virus?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!! This Ebola is killing doctors and nurses who are supposed to be protected and following safety precautions. Why risk getting our soldiers infected and then coming home to bring Ebola back?!!! It doesn't make sense. Let's send disease specialists and drugs and equipment. And while I'm at it, let's not let any flights from W. Africa land in the US.

    u dont understand it very well. sending troops to fight Ebola doesn't literally mean soldiers are gonna fight Ebola.
