Yes, of course more than us two realize do recognize the contrasts, as in between those who truly walk the walk and those who just talk the talk...
But, att least I have come to expect more empathy and sympathy, i. e., from those others who claim so much about how they also allegedly identify as part of the black disapora, e. g., also being the true descendants of black africans, etc.
The short version:
Actions (do) speak louder than (mere) words...
What this disease has exposed is a health care system that cant handle a serious pandemic. We need to start asking agencies why not?
Kem I believe that most of the African nations have not invested in their health care system. It is tragic that the health system is not a priority in these countries. Ebola has stretched their limited resources.
Here is a report I filed on Facebook in October last year, 2014. Not sure if I am repeating this, as I did file it on some discussion of the Ebola crisis, with updates from a friend in Pennsylvania whose health care organization sends volunteers to Liberia on a regular basis, even before the Ebola epidemic.
A couple of her updates were heart-wrenching, of burying some 60 bodies one day, and being literally overwhelmed by the accelerating death rate and local government inefficiency in handling the issue. This was my report back then, raised as a possibility Ebola was, or is, the result of bio-terrorism:
The EBOLA CRISIS
An experiment in US bioterrorism that got out of control?
A report I received yesterday from Global Research gave me a nauseous feeling, similar to an article in the 1990’s by Dr. William Campbell Douglas that was titled, “WHO Killed Africa.”
It was not a question. WHO is the World Health Organization, and the article talked about how the AIDs virus, artificially developed by the US Army’s Biological Warfare Laboratory in Ft. Detrick, Md, was spread in parts of Africa under a fraudulent WHO smallpox (or other known diseases) inoculation program that, unknown to those who were vaccinated, also contained the AIDs virus.
Portions of Africa, and certain predominantly black communities in the US, including those in San Francisco and a few other major US cities were infected, followed by outbreaks that could be blamed as coming from primarily the gay communities.
That’s how the AIDs epidemic was typically characterized.
Yesterday’s Global Research report seems to follow a similar theme.
“Is it possible that the United States Department of Defense (DOD) and other Western countries are directly responsible for infecting Africans with the Ebola virus?” it asks.
Dr. Cyril Broderick, A Liberian scientist and a former professor of Plant Pathology at the University of Liberias College of Agriculture and Forestry says the West, particularly the U.S. is responsible for the Ebola outbreak in West Africa. Dr. Broderick claims the following in an exclusive article published in the Daily Observer based in Monrovia, Liberia. He wrote the following:
“The US Department of Defense (DoD) is funding Ebola trials on humans, trials which started just weeks before the Ebola outbreak in Guinea and Sierra Leone.”
“The reports continue and state that the DoD gave a contract worth $140 million dollars to Tekmira, a Canadian pharmaceutical company, to conduct Ebola research. This research work involved injecting and infusing healthy humans with the deadly Ebola virus. Hence, the DoD is listed as a collaborator in a First in Human Ebola clinical trial (NCT02041715), which started in January 2014 shortly before an Ebola epidemic was declared in West Africa in March.”
Dr. Broderick claims that the U.S. government has a research laboratory located in a town called Kenema in Sierra Leone that studies what he calls viral fever bioterrorism, It is also the town where he acknowledges that is the epicentre of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa.
“He also asks an important question when he says,“It is most disturbing that the U. S. Government has been operating a viral hemorrhagic fever bioterrorism research laboratory in Sierra Leone. Are there others?”
“After all,” he notes, “the U.S. government has been experimenting with deadly diseases on human beings for a long time, history tells us so.”
One example, he cites, is Guatemala. Between 1946 and 1948, the United States government under President Harry S. Truman in collaboration with Guatemalan President Juan José Arévalo and his health officials deliberately infected more than 1500 soldiers, prostitutes, prisoners and even mental patients with syphilis and other sexually transmitted diseases such as gonorrhea and chancroid (a bacterial sexual infection) out of more than 5500 Guatemalan people who participated in the experiments.
The worst part of it is that none of the test subjects infected with the diseases ever gave informed consent.
The Boston Globe published the discovery made by Medical historian and professor at Wellesley College, Susan M. Reverby in 2010 called,“Wellesley professor unearths a horror: Syphilis experiments in Guatemala.”
There was more to this report, but this covers the essentials.
Global Research went on to say:
US government agencies have a long history of carrying out allegedly defensive biological warfare research at labs in Liberia and Sierra Leone. This includes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which is now the point agency for managing the Ebola spill-over into the US, Prof. Francis Boyle said.
This is tragic because Africa has so much mineral and other wealth, they shouldn't be poor at all
I can only hope that no one is that psychotic or evil to do such a thing.
