    In fact, you are welcome to leave the WAB, I can do very well without your stupidity!
    I challenge you to point out when and where I said that propaganda was the main cause or even a major factor for deaths in Ebola.

    The well read thing wasn't for you, so I don't know why you are caps locking it.

    You are overreacting worse than a little kid here. I am starting to doubt you are a retired colonel. If someone acted like that, even with an inferior in the Army I know, it's likely that they would have a chair broken in their back.
    Or at least go to jail for some days.

It was only after massive efforts to educate people about the danger of Ebola and the need to seek health professionals right away and isolate themselves from other did the authorities manage to stem the tide of Ebola patients.
      It also has to do a lot with their superstitious beliefs, like voodoo, rituals they do with the body of the dead and other stuff.

        There is no need to doubt that. He is indeed a retired Lieutenant Colonel of Engineers, Canadian Forces.

          Read up on Low-Information Diet.

          Also, if your wife is like mine, her "news" comes from Facebook, and the purpose is primarily to talk to people at parties. Nothing wrong with that, but don't confuse THAT with forums like WAB, where people complain over the lack of detail of Operation Nickel Grass...
          Actually, she hates Facebook and listen to a lot of radio talk shows. However, unfortunately, she don't read much so her opinions usually tend to side with some Conservative or Liberal - in the classic sense, not the U.S term - radio show host or interviewer that comes in the program. In relation to people of this forum, although there is always a bell curve of abilities in anyplace, I am sure that the standards, or the mean of the intelligence distribution here is set higher, or to the right in a graph.
          My point here is how mass politics, including propaganda from Mainstream media and government almost completely shape the public opinion debate and fear mongering is one of their most used tactics, together with divide and conquer.

          It is just sad how some people overreact to stuff like they are internet trolls, little kids or belong to Atheismblob. Of course I know this is a minority in any forum.

            My point for doubting that is the way he reacts to things. The first thing you learn in the Army is how to behave. If you don't know how to behave you will be punished out of a dishonorable discharge very soon.
            Specially Canada, that in the stereotypical image has one of the most well behaved people on Earth. In any case "To be more than to seem like it". The opinion some random person has of you in the internet don't mean anything.

              He's old and cranky, which he'll be the first to admit. Try to work around that and you'll find him to be an invaluable source of information and experience. For example, look up UNPROFOR
