should U.S. troops be in west africa fighting ebola?

our team: Jasmin, Albino, Eric

our statement: i dont think they should be over there because if theyre over there helping sick patients then possibly they could catch it and bring it back to the U.S.

our 3 supportive sentences

  • preventing people from traveling from west Africa does not fix the problem
  • our military is skilled at humanitarian emergencies
  • president Barack Obama sent U.S. troops to west Africa to help stop the Ebola outbreak. it was the right thing to do, but he did it for the wrong reasons.
