Of an International Health Scare, a Re-conflict, A Reckoning and Food Line Recreation

The World Health Organization(WHO) has declared the spread of Ebola Virus Disease(EVD) in West Africa an international health emergency and its has determined that a coordinated international response is needed to stop and to reverse this viral infectious disease. Following a two-day conference in Switzerland, the WHO described the spread of this disease that has killed some 970 so far as an "extraordinary event" which has also infected another 1,700 people in Guinea, Liberia, Nigeria and Sierra Leone. Yet, there are no travel or trade bans with the countries of infections. Rather, health professionals are calling for good surveillance, detection, investigation and management to identify and to treat possible cases of Ebola. But this disease has the potential to wreck more damage upon Africa because of the inadequate health systems on the continent, thus WHO's declaration is fitting to raise awareness so that African could receive assistance to combat the dreaded Ebola.

As if a spreading infectious disease is not enough for the world to deal with on this August day, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has re-flamed. Rockets have been fired from Gaza into Israel, which has responded with tank shells and airstrikes. Thus, the short-lived three-day peace is over for Gaza and as previously stated on this Blog, lunacy and arrogance is a violent mix and it will take direct action by Washington, New York and Brussels to end the conflict in Gaza.

Further compounding world affairs on this August day is Russian president Putin's retaliatory ban on food products from the west into Russia. Soon, the people of Russia will face food lines resembling the soviet era because Putin has chosen to rather play roulette with the welfare of Russians than to recognize and to respect the determined aspirations of Ukraine.

In Iraq, the Islam Sate(IS) has finally come upon a day of reckoning. United States(US) President Barrack Obama has approved air strikes to avert an attack by IS upon Baghdad and against US interests in Iraq. Moreover, President Obama has approved food drops and airstrikes to prevent the genocide of the Yazidis minority who have fled up a mountain of refugee to escape execution by the IS. The Yazidis have been trapped on Mount Sinjar in Northern Iraq where they fled IS's attacks on non-Muslims. The IS has forced thousands of Christians and other religions from Iraqi towns like Mosul recently after demanding they all convert to Islam, pay a large tax or face execution. IS's attacks upon other religions will now prove its demise for its day of reckoning has arrived in the form of the US Air Force in defense of humanity and to avert genocide.
