Out of action

On Wednesday, Nagin called for a total evacuation of New Orleans, saying the city will not be functional for two or three months and that people would not be allowed back into their homes for at least a month or two.

Hang on... A MONTH OR TWO? This is a city in the 'most developed' country in the world, and a city is closed down for a month or two. Apocalyptic stuff. I expect roving bands of preachers claiming that the world is about to end ;)

Seriously, though, what do they expect? Iraq was hit with massive sanctions, and then roving bands of US Marines turn up and terrorize the fuck out of the ordinary folk. You can hardly be surprised at this mindless violence when there is so much, err, midless violence ENDORSED my Dubya et al.
