#1 Why are we bothering? They don't want it; quarantine their hellholes and let them stew in their own filth.

#2 We impede the time honored process of natural selection at our own peril. Leave them to their well deserved misery.

#3 Polio is infectious - very much so.
If the disease was wipespread in Pakland, visitors there (including US citizens of Pak ancestry, NGO visitors, diplomats, etc) might become infected, even if they are careful, and once infected they could be agents of further infection.

#5 "Lord Garth" -- that's why I said to quarantine the place. They want disease? Let them revel in it.

#7 No wait!
The Paks should close the Gene Pools during the Summer. That's better, don't you think?

#8 It's the fact they were female AND Vaccination workers. They just couldn't resist, like boys shooting at squirrels with BBguns.

I thought you were advocating quarantining only the areas with obvious infection.
That wouldn't work because people infected don't show it.
you would have to quarantine the entire country which would be logistically impossible

#10 I'm pretty cool with restricted visitors and immigrants from Pakland. Next country up for a ban?
