The federal government has announced that thousands of additional US soldiers are being sent to Liberia. General Gary Volesky said the troops would “stamp out” ebola.
The official story is that combat troops are being sent to build treatment structures for those infected with ebola.
Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such as an engineer battalion if it has to be military? Why not do what the government usually does and contract with a construction company to build the treatment units? “Additional thousands of troops” results in a very large inexperienced construction crew for 17 treatment units. It doesn’t make sense.
Two-thirds of Lebanon’s Christians believe Hezbollah is protecting Lebanon from the threat of takfiris (extremist groups), a recent survey by the Beirut Center for Research and Information revealed.

It seems that Zim Shipping is once again encountering rough waters at the Port of Oakland. A ship belonging to the Israeli company was supposed to have docked yesterday in Oakland, but once again efforts to offload cargo there have been thwarted, at least temporarily, by protesters. The following comes from Indybay.org:
The last time I worked for a large mainstream media outlet was back in the early 80s, and I can’t imagine what it would be like now, showing up to cover an event, and facing public taunts and ridicule such as the CNN crew is subjected to in this video. What a way to make a living. But I can’t help feeling that anybody with any integrity would have gotten out by now, so I find it a bit hard to muster much sympathy for them.
