Ebola As A Weapon

what do we do when the dickheads grab someone with ebola, infect suicide terrorists and send them to all points?.........kill all terrorists now asap- they will not go away, they must be sent away in boxes.

I don't think this would be all that easy.

From what I gather you can't weaponize it very easily (isn't there a Tom Clancy novel about this?) and there's only so much an infected person could do. Until they started showing symptoms they wouldn't spread it and once they started showing symptoms they wouldn't likely have they physical ability to do much. From what I've read when it kicks in it hits you hard.

Although it wouldn't surprise me if ISIS brags about having ebola suicide weapons just because they know many will freak out about it.

I think it's a lot harder than you might imagine.

Forget all the logistics that would have to fly under the radar of multiple countries trying to spot terror activity. Not to mention the likely stepped up prevention actions now that a confirmed case has moved long distance.

You'd still have a short window where someone who's incredibly sick would have to try and make physical contact with people in an open manner. I don't think they could just rub snot on hand rails and have a big impact.

It's something the DoD/CDC should contemplate, but I'm not worried about it.

For groups that want and have stated goals to use chemical, biological, and nuclear weapons - like Al Queda and ISI, you better be ready and have a working plan for it. Likely to line up all the ducks and be successful? Probably not - but remember - the bad guys DO get a vote.

Sitting in Dallas reading this. I won't be surprised if there are more cases in the US soon.
