Right, we see how well that worked. Then
after the worst happens, the gov't. waits 5 days to even begin the proper
level of emergency response.
Today is Friday. The storm hit Monday - just five days then ... yet somehow
tens of thousands of tons of supplies have already been delivered, fire trucks from Los Angeles somehow covered two thousand plus miles to New Orleans by yesterday, Los Angeles urban search and rescue team and their swiftwater rescue teams made it there by yesterday, California sent 100 doctors and nurses on Tuesday, I've seen loaded Air Force transport planes flying out of March Air Reserve base starting on Monday morning going somewhere ... you'd think that they could solve a few million people's tiny little problems like food, water, clothing, and rebuilding their homes in an hour just like they do on television.
The damn city is causing as many problems as the weather did. It doesn't help when you shoot at rescue helicopters, firefighters, lay siege to children's hosipitals, murder and rape each other. The national guard is there in the hundreds with hundreds more rolling in but until they kill, capture, or scare off the slime that has risen up to loot and take over the city not much is going to happen positive.
I suppose it would have been best to drop military members in there a few at a time completely unorganized into the mess to allow them to get killed. I don't know why the Army didn't deploy the 10th Mountain division into the city complete with tanks. Why didn't the Navy sail into the city while the water was deep enough. The Marines could have stormed the beaches ...
people act like military units are sitting in cargo planes on the runways waiting for shit to happen.
Remember the day after 9-11 when New York City returned to normal ... niether do I.
1,600,000 people are a lot of people to feed even for a US military with 400,000 service memeber scattered across the globe in 170 countries around the world.
