One of the more interesting compounds of terrorism, ignorance and disease is the Bokoh Haram.

They don’t believe in quarantine, being no respecter of borders, orders or law.

They don’t believe in Western knowledge either. Once ebola hitches a ride with the Boko Haram who can say what will happen? Globalization has had a good run. But it’s hitting some speed bumps. Let’s hope air travel recovers. Of course aircraft have others uses besides travel.

Great. Now we can worry about biological terrorists. Any person carrying any of a number of plagues can fly in to Orly or Heathrow and away to the world at large. Persons could also drive around to big cities but I think there is a time limit on a carrier before he is debilitated buy the disease.
The only sure cure for fatal diseases is to kill everyone having contact or possible contact with the disease. Oddly enough the same strategy is recommended for Muslims. I'll have to read the Book of Revelation again, see how those horsemen fit in.

Ahhh . . . Fuel/Air bombs. Blu-82 and MOAB.

I never understood why there wasn't/isn't an intense campaign to wipe out terrorist training camps this way. Thousands of would-be jihadists incinerated over a course of months would have a salutary effect and dampen recruitment efforts for even the most devoted head-cutters.

Kill. Them. All.

Nigeria, the most recent country to have been affected with ebola, is the size of British Columbia but it has a population of 168 MILLION people. Add to that overpopulation problem many superstitious beliefs and bloodthirsty warlords and it doesn't look pretty. At least in the USA, "quarantine" would mean something. Hell, we should be quarantining ANYONE arriving in the US who has been in ANY of the affected countries since the outbreak. God forbid that the CDC response in this country would be anything like the response of "Homeland Security [sic]" to illegals streaming across the southern border.

We should do more than quarantine them. We should forbid them entry to our country at all.

And, as DonRodrigo says, we should bomb all the camps and suspected terrorist gatherings and all the countries that harbor terrorists and all their children and their families and friends and the lands on which they grow crops and graze animals and anybody that smiles at or looks at them. Well, DonRidrigo didn't say all that. I added some of my own. And I am considered a moderate when it comes to smiting one's enemies.
