WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- President Barack Obama on Tuesday called West Africa's deadly Ebola outbreak a looming threat to global security and announced a major expansion of the U.S. role in trying to halt its spread, including deployment of 3,000 troops to the region, Reuters reported.

"The reality is that this epidemic is going to get worse before it gets better," Obama said at the Atlanta headquarters of the U.S. Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

"But, right now, the world still has an opportunity to save countless lives. Right now, the world has the responsibility to act, to step up and to do more. The United States of America intends to do more," he added. -- [wp_colorbox_media url="http://in.reuters.com/article/2014/09/17/health-ebola-usa-idINKBN0HB1GL20140917" type="iframe" hyperlink="Source"]

  1. Erm... What is this man DOING? why must we still have him making decisions? USA please let's get a new president. There are surely a few good men willing to do what he won't

  2. Troops to go over to fight EBOLA! Now, that makes about as much sense as me sending my dog to fight ISIS...Please...just last week he approves 3.2 million to do test on Monkeys that are drunk (total waste of money), and now he wants to send our young men and women to fight EBOLA!!!
    If you makes sense to anyone then I'm losing my mind. What's going to happen when our troops catch this virus. Don't tell me they can't catch it cause they will have on their big hazmat suits or whatever as there is still the chance, but they are saying that he wants to downgrade our military and this is one way of doing that for sure...STAND up people, or you stand to lose some precious family members!

    HOW MUCH LONGER will all this nonsense continue?

    • MINDY: It's probably just a matter of time. Better get MASKS and gloves and Hazmat suits or whatever we will need before we can't get them. Might really need them. And to be safe, stay home and hunker down, no one in and no one out.
