Hurricane Katrina War Zone
Hurricane Katrina War Zone
From the first images I saw of the damage, I thought it looked like a nuclear holocaust or meteor strike. With all ouradvanced technology and enlightened moral compass, we humans remain as helpless, or more so, against natural disasters, as cavemen.
When the animals and birds head north, or to the high ground, you follow their example.
Actually cavemen, who I presume were more in touch with nature and deluge legends, probably would have more cunning and a better survival rate. Especially since they were not dependent on "society" or "government agencies" for practically everything: food, water, energy, medicine, transportation, protection, cohesiveness.
Now we see how our technology and interdependencies are crippling us.
My heart is breaking for the victims, the children, the elderly, the poor, the mentally ill, the disabled, everyone in the path of this catastrophic storm.
QUESTION: Where is the foreign assistance?
What are England, Europe, Malaysia, Japan, China, India, Saudi Arabia, Australia, etc. doing for the United States? Sending "condolences" is a sarcastic insult, and you and I know it.
I did a Google search on "hurricane katrina foreign aid" and got guess how many results? Zero. Now I'm not the world expert on search, but this seems like a logical key phrase to use, does it not?
People, this is sickening, pathetic, insulting. Where is the wonderful "world community" when we need it? Nowhere, that's where.
If you have any reports to the contrary, I'd love to hear them.
News from the War Zone
Here's a quote from Michael Brown, the director of FEMA:
"Some kids [referring to the plundering rapists and murderers] think it's just a game [Grand Theft Auto video game?].
They've somehow got their hands on a gun, perhaps by breaking into a sporting goods store.
But the 82nd Airborne is down there, and they don't like to be shot at....
...This is a war zone we're working on right now.
Guys in camouflage outfits are going to change the mood in this city [New Orleans] significantly."
Ya gotta love it. Kill those lousy slugs.
I'm highly in favor of the "shoot to kill" policy of the military against internal enemies, the looters, rapists, bandits, marauders, fire starting maniacs, and those who fire weapons at rescue or supply vehicles.
Gasoline and oil truckers are scared to attempt to enter the affected areas, fearing that vandals and homocidal thrill seekers will fire at them, causing their trucks to explode in a fiery hell.
So I cheer on the military and law enforcement: shoot to kill.
Now, check out these typically brain-dead statements from MSM journalists questioning Michael Brown, director of FEMA...
MSM journalist 1: "Why is it more dangerous at night than during the day?"
MSM journalist 2: "Have there been any arrests of those who fire weapons at rescue workers?"
Michael Brown: "FEMA is not a law enforcement agency."
NOTE: All quotes from C-SPAN, a decent MSM outlet.
