Who Lost The Big Easy?

There's a lot of crap being written now about global warming and our failure to ratify Kyoto as being to blame for the devastation of Katrina - perhaps 'crap' is too weak a word.
But our very slow, almost hapless efforts to save people's lives and the great city of New Orleans is rather upsetting. Paul Craig Roberts, the right-wing economist who can't seem to help making logically unassailable observations, doesn't mince words on this one.

Though I choose not to ignore the impact or even existence of global warming just because it still canĀ“t be proven, I think RobertsĀ“ comments say it all.

Good grief, that's a bit of a stretch. New Orleans has been on the verge of a disaster for decades and has managed to get lucky.

Bush has made plenty of mistakes but blaming this disaster on him is a bit tough to swallow.

Roberts is virulently anti-Bush, and so his rhetoric here is over-the-top. But we need to consider that we are trying to save Iraq or secure peace in the Middle East when we have such severe problems here at home. And New Orleans is now apparently beginning to look like Baghdad with armed gangs roaming the town.

They had 3 days of warnings and all over the south it is bedlam. No electrictity in most of ole miss and alabama.
Ignoring Iraq it is a monumental f/u not to have US Army troops on the ground to keep peace and get people to a safe place.
All this money on Homeland security and like 9/11 we find out communcations are out and no one is in charge.

John McCain to the rescue.
