I believe it. So what else is new? FEMA has to change hats, from anti-terrorist focused to relief.

Imagine that, a government bureaucracy doing something stupid.

Nobody is starving. We do not need mad cow in our food chain from an obvious source.

Not this shit again. Dupe.

You quite frankly ought to be able to decipher bullshit from a real story.

I am really getting sick of the childish bullshit from the European press. Fuck them… they have managed to turn this disaster in to another hate America fest.

This is not about Europe and their fucking anti American crap.

I thought the first time I heard this it was German rations.

Nobody is starving.

And if they are nobody could find them to help them anyway.

The food is not fit for consumption ==> Not FDA approved.
Link Posted: 9/23/2005 11:39:15 AM EDT


Welcome to our world. Except our foreign aid is consumed and our country cursed. We at least said thank you before tossing it.

Guess the mad cow regs won't be waived.

If this really happens, don't expect any other countries to ever again lift a finger to help the US with anything like this in the future.

We might as well just have literally spit in their faces as they tried to help us.
I am disgusted.

And we were shocked when people in NOLA shot at rescuers. I don't see this as all that different.

If this is true, someone's career needs to end. Absolutely unfuckingbelievable. Sorry Vito.

Mad Cow in an MRE?
LoL, in a VEGETARIAN MRE?

Though its very likely the MRE's they are shipping to us are undesireble for one reason or another.

The German rations were handed out with no problems. So if rations from the UK were not distributed, did it ever occur to some of you that there might actually be a LEGITIMATE reason for not doing so?

Think people. Don't succumb to the freaking knee jerk reactionary stuff the liberal press wants you to succumb to.

A legitimate reason to refuse pre-packed, sealed, NATO-standard British 24-hour ration packs, which, I might add, are in my experience generally pretty damn good? No, no possible legitimate reason occurs to me. There might be one, but it certainly isn't obvious. Now, I bet there are some bureaucratically defensible reasons that they weren't distributed, but that certainly doesn't mean they make sense to real people.

Hell, even if there were some legitimate concerns about the rations, which I highly doubt, I would much rather see them distributed and have some refugees get sick rather than blatantly insult our closest friend and ally in the world.

Only a child could not see that story as hose shit if they bother to actually think for a second.

A few pearls...


The aid worker, who would not be named, said:

yet the starving of the American South

and lets Americans starve.

Everyone is revolted by the chaotic shambles the US is making of this crisis

This is utter madness



And at the end the reporter covers his ass…


The FDA said: "We did inspect some MREs (meals ready to eat) on September 13. They are the only MREs we looked at. There were 70 huge pallets of vegetarian MREs.

"They were from a foreign nation. We inspected them and then released them for distribution."



It is written like it came out of a collage newspaper… a child should be able to see it for what it is.

It's a damned shame if true. Next time, ask your fellow Brits to send them directly to AFCOMers. We would have gratefully accepted such a generous contribution to our SHTF supplies.


While we are on the subject, do you think you can get the ball rolling on returning the guns we gave you to fight off the German invasion. My Grandpappy sent over a S&W .38 and a .45 Tommygun which we would like sent back, since the threat of invasion is somewhat diminished.

That is absurd… you would rather people get sick… you really want to say that.

There are all sorts of legitimate reasons to hold them up for inspection…

Visible damage compromising some rations would mean holding all for inspection.

Misplaced packing list so that you have an unknown cargo.

And I am sure many more.

Please explain the starving Americans crap in the story and that it all could be sent for incineration bullshit.

This is a fucking hit piece plain and simple.

Nobody destroyed anything.

i would assume it was a meat problem, cause the Veggie MRE's were inspected and released

They are the only MREs we looked at.

At least get the agency right. It's not FEMA it's the FDA.
