    U.S. Navy hospital ship to be sent to Colombia

    U.S. Navy hospital ship to be sent to Colombia

    UPI18 Aug 20183Aug. 18 (UPI) — The United States is sending a Navy hospital ship to Colombia to aid hundreds of thousands of migrants coming over the border to escape violence and hunger in Venezuela.


    {linkefense Secretary Jim Mattis announced Friday that the United States would take its first action into the Venezuelan crisis by deploying the U.S. Navy ship to the Colombian coast to help treat the refugees since the Colombian medical system has been overwhelmed.


    “It is absolutely a humanitarian mission,” Mattis said in a Miami Herald report. “We’re not sending soldiers, we’re sending doctors.”


    Mattis got advice on where to deploy the ship in talks Friday with newly inaugurated Colombian President Ivan Duque.


    “They [Colombian leadership] not only agreed in principle, they gave details of how we might best craft the cruise through the region,” Mattis said in a Voice of America report.


    As of June, an estimated 2.3 million people, out of 32.8 million people who live there, have fled Venezuela, mainly to Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil, United Nations secretary-general spokesperson Stephane Dujarric told reporters in a U.N. update on the crisis.


    “People cite the lack of food as their main reason for fleeing, with reportedly 1.3 million people suffering from malnourishment,” Dujarric said.


    There are “severe shortages of basic medicines and medical supplies, which have led to a sharp deterioration of the quality of hospitals,” and reportedly more than 100,000 HIV/AIDS patients are “at risk due to lack of access to necessary medication,” Dujarric added. Furthermore, “formerly eradicated diseases of measles, malaria, tuberculosis and diphtheria are present and on the rise.”


    Mattis said he would probably use the USNS Comfort ship, but did not give a firm date as to when it would be dispatched from its home port in Norfolk, Va.


    The Comfort can carry up to 1,215 personnel in times of war, but has a smaller crew and lesser capabilities for some humanitarian relief efforts.

    Can send the Navy to Colombia but can not send troops to our own Southern Border.

    Why does our country have this aversion to doing what is necessary to protect their own citizens?

    STOP FORCING AMERICANS TO PAY FOR THIS...GET OUT OF OUR WALLETS!

    THOSE FLEEING COWARDS CAN GO HAVE A REVOLUTION ON THEIR SOIL AND FIGHT FOR THEIR OWN DAMN COUNTRY!

    WE ARE SICK OF IT!

    SEND THEM BIRTH CONTROL...NOTHING ELSE!

    Do not bring them to the United States, you treat and release them THERE, NOT HERE. Oh my God.

    Send them some fvcking food, that's the best and cheapest way to solve "malnourishment."
