"Else political correctness is going to end up killing a lot of us." This merely echoes the words many of us have been speaking for years, and being called crazies, bigots, homophobes, racists, nut-jobs, etc...for it.
If I were the pastors in question, I'd tell the mayor and her goons to go sh!t in thier hats. Nicely, of course.
"I'm not at all excited about this mission, I just think it's basically what decision-theorists like to call the "least worst option."" Doesn't inspire confidence, that's for sure. We're certainly going to have to have people over there in any case, I'm just not at all confident in the leadership at this point. If you find yourself over there, best of luck and keep it STRAC. All the best - USNBH
My concern is with the current safety protocols for this contagion, which it would appear are not 100% effective in protecting healthcare workers from contracting the disease. The assumption is that these same protocols will be used by our troops, clearly posing an increased risk to our soldiers. I would agree that this mission is certainly one that the National Guard is suited for. I'm just not sure I like the level of risk factor, especially as I have little or no confidence in our commander in chief to mitigate them in any substantial way. To the contrary, I think he would most likely exacerbate them.
It has certainly been that way since the end of the Cold War. Lots of support elements from Military Airlift Command to logistics, medical, and military police are now mostly guard and reserve activities.

The President Who Cried Wolf

Maybe, but I still think he's just a puppet. Jarret and others are pulling the strings. Marxists all; they don't care how many they have to kill to get what they want. Power. Its been that way with Marxist communists since they first crawled out from under their rock. Plenty of documented history to prove it, too.

The president came on TV last night, and after about a paragraph's worth of his gas, I switched the channel to "Ancient Aliens." Far more believable and doesn't insult my intelligence to the point 0's administration odes.
I think being a 'Clinton Democrat' is just as disqualifying as being an '0bama Democrat.' Two sides of the same coin.

I bet about half of the "do nothings" on the list crash and burn before they're 30. Remember the old adage: The higher the monkey climbs the pole, the more people can see his a55.
