There are so many things America should be doing to help.... should have been doing.
The State Department is clueless again.

@ utah engineer:

Please tell us precisely what the USA should be doing that they aren't already doing. We've donated tens of millions of dollars, plus sent a ship-load of medical supplies. We've also allowed USA aid workers to expand their efforts. We've basically done everything the effected countries have asked of us. So what more would you have us do?

I think the article's suggestion of sending trained military medical units is the "more that could be done". The idea that it will only stay in these African countries is false. It will continue to spread if it isn't dealt with now. It has the potential to become the next "Spanish Influenza". People move around the world much more easily than they did in 1918-19. This article even shows how it has already moved to a neighboring country that was already exercising controls.
