#2 So "throw the military at the problem" does not appear to be the answer in this case.

#5 surprised carriers aren't better prepared for an outbreak. I would have thought such a thing would have been a major risk during the cold war, and even more so now that we have jumping jihadi's.

#11 /\ The Captain did not wake up one morning and schedule the port visit. Once the visit was scheduled by higher authorities the "shore leave" was inevitable for political reasons.
