    Really? You don't think there is any merit whatsoever in pursuing a story about the fact that foreign-born doctors in the UK attempted terrorist attacks and that there is a shortage of doctors in the UK due to their NHS and so they have a high demand for foreign-born doctors and that they have had problems vetting the ones they do allow in, due to the high demand, is a story worth talking about, especially as the US is on the cusp of nominating and possibly electing someone who advocates a similar national healthcare system?

    The headline is inflammatory, sure. But do you think people in Britain think that is so ridiculous? I don't. My firm has a London office that I work with and I visit at least 4 times a year. I have many friends there and trust me, they are talking about the correlations I mentioned above, and these are hardly neocons, either.

    Great points. No big deal with the headline. Only to extremist apologists would it be considered a big deal.

    Thats ridiculous. Really, before you make an inflammatory statement, get your facts straight.

    Do you know what % of US doctors are foreign trained??? When you find out then comment. To say that Universal Healthcare somehow breeds terrorism if flat out moronic. For you to even try to defend such a statement is even more pathetic.

    Ok, sure, fine. I've NEVER had a foreign born doctor or caregiver in the U.S. Never even heard of one. Laughable.

    The Brits may have foreign born dr's, but is that mainly due to the NHS? How would you explain the U.S. % of foreign born Dr's? Brits have a high percentage of foreign dr's for the same reason the U.S. does. The Brits are less socialist than some of their European Counterparts, and offer better pay for their pro's than Germany, Poland, etc. The pay is better in the UK/US than others. It causes a brain drain from plenty of the other countries, and they still haven't figured out how to counter it.

    Chalk another one up for the MSM...more drivel.

    So, the US has more foreign trained doctors than the UK? Last time I checked, the UK had more, 40% to 25%.

    Poverty and religious fundamentalism are the 'breeding ground' for terrorism, not national health care.

    The headline is a political 'scare' tactic.

    Right now leaning Obama, Richardson on the Democrat side

    Paul, Guiliani on the Republican side.

    Still a long way to go. Obama has slipped lately in my eyes.

    25% vs 40% is irrelevant.
    Your argument was that it is b/c of the NHS there is a shortage of MDs in the USA. This argument is wrong. why does the USA have 25% of its MDs trained abroad. According to your argument it is this shortage that brings in foreign docs and thus raises the chances and it is Universal Health care that leads tro a shortage in MDs. If that was true, our system would not have any shortage and thus not attract foreign trained MDs. But that is not true. There is a shortage in our system. And foreign docs make up a good chunk of Americas physicians. hence we are jjust as likely to recruit terrorist physicians as the NHS.

    BTW that 40% vs 25% is very inaccurate. The 40% does not apply to licensed physicians recognised by the RCPUK. The vast majority of foreign MDs in the UK are working as House Officers and Registrars and never qualify to work as consultants or GPs. This is equivilant to remaining a resident physician indefinitely in the USA which many foreign graduates do in the USA and are not included in that 25% that you cited.

    Thanks this supports my point and supports the fact that J5E is flat out wrong to suggest that Universal Health Care System creates phsyician shortages leading to recruitment of foreign trained MDs which leads to incr chance of having terrorist physicians. It was an ignorant comment on Fox and even more ignorant for J5E to defend it
