We could treat Dr. Kent Brantly overseas, but America is still playing at being the great mama in the sky. Come on over, Brantly; we'll cure you despite the fact that Ebola is incurable. We're America. We do the impossible.
And when it comes to traitor soldiers like Bowe Bergdahl, why shouldn't we have brought him back to America, which he deserted, by trading him for five vicious terrorists who will be out to kill us?
We're America. We're compassionate. We try to save the life of one man while we risk the lives of millions. Sure, a few hack doctors say there's no risk in treating Dr. Brantly. It reminds me of an old Florida ad: "Come on down; the weather's fine." That doesn't mean that there's no hurricane around the corner. Let me count the ways doctors have been wrong.

Would Russia, China or Switzerland invite Brantly in for treatment? Only egotistical America, which believes that we are so powerful and mighty that nothing can really hurt us. America was discovered for the many. It's time we stopped looking out for the few.
We are acting like a church rather than a country. It's time we protected ourselves – the many not the few.
Humanitarianism does not involve risking the lives of the many for the sake of the few who are doing self-absorbed, good Samaritan missionary work in Africa.
