Another person who, a) hasn't read the original article, b) hasn't a clue of the reality on the ground. Africa has mucked up it's systems to the point most rely heavily on aid. The issue of a tragedy is beyond question. MSF is an incredible organisation that is really only scraping the surface. For these Christians to stand as the only fight against a brutal epidemic that is a potential nightmare of Holly Wood epic, is insane. USA, UN should have mobilized on Day 1, if only to prevent it hitting USA. Nope the dudes are more interested in other issues and golf. Whoowee it is deeply ugly situation that has grown and poses a major international threat. Any $ to help at the front is essential. No they $$$$ to bring a doc home where he could still die. But Ebola on home soil - sheeshe the risk is low but the consequences massive, the maths was always against bringing him back. I have a project in one of the affected countries and it being at risk can only be held to the indifference of the powers in the world. if it gets into Lagos the potential of over 10m deaths........ Should always be maximum force as soon as possible and money needed ........ The World Bank $200m is too late and would have been better for $2m at the beginning.
This is the real world, yup that is why there is due process and who is Kerry to deny it to others when you expect it yourself. There are considerable lines of inquiry that need closing off and following what they do have. Some of the so called evidence relied on has been countered so weakening Kerry's position. We don't want a situation that the Russians, Ukrainians or Separatists are given plenty of room through incompetence and who ever is guilty walk away. Looks like it has already been handed to them to paint enough doubt..... That is one reason why there is due process.
There will be evidence that can be corroborated, it takes work to compile a case. No what we do know is that Kerry has gone in shooting from the hip on very scanty information. He has made himself judge, jury and executioner.
And the rebels have how many aircraft that can be shot down?
Morning all, a night off and still no evidence, more questions, mudslinging, but no evidence. Some interesting counter claims though that noted that the launcher shown missing a missile was in Ukraine territory and noted the address. Not that they weren't involved, just that I should like to see more than Kerry's attacks with very little credible evidence. The liberals have gone bananas on this debate with all sorts of personal attacks but their faith in Obama's crew is verging on the religious, they need to get out a bit more, some from their basements....
Believing any politician without checking the facts is dumb.
I note you paint all you disagree with as Cynics.Further to that you have to reach past the contemporary meaning to its origin as a word to gain any real meaning. I have lack of faith in the systems because I have seen the consequences of rushing in where angels fail to tread. I have lived in many countries and seen poverty and abuse generated by systems imposed on people. I have seen the lies by news and politicians. If USA and UK didn't hide the truth and sometimes lie WW2 would have been very different. I am not condeming simply not believing until there is more than circumstantial evidence that Kerry should have had on his desk if 1/2 competent.
USA is supposed to have a very good surveillance and intelligence. Where is the smoking gun? They should likely have good info.
So you are still saying that with all this information, so credible, that they allowed all these planes fly into peril? Thus the dudes allowing them to fly into peril are to blame as well? Read the reports yourself - UN-VERI-FIED VIDEO ETC ETC. The claim of a satellite picture of a launch has not been published. That would help credit the claim. As I have said - nil/nux/nothing etc / There is more circumstantial evidence of Santa Claus.
That is a valid theory with weight but not a conclusion. The propaganda and public reaction has muddied the waters. That is my beef with the situation. The systems the media have related to have to be specifically operated with intent to fire.
