So to be consistant our friends on the left must now demand a complete US pull out of New Orleans and let them build thier own future without US help. We can not endanger our Military and relief workers in this enviorment, nor can we violate the "rights" of those who are the predators. So if we pull out all Police, Military and Relief Agency personnel we can avoid senseless loss of American life, let the New Orleanians fend for themselves, safer that way for political agendas to be consistant.


I suppose I'd be bored if it weren't true. Like about 98% of everything that comes from the left.

New Orleans is a very poor city, it's just being nationally exposed for the first time. However, it's a really cool city with a lot of history, so it needs to be rebuilt.

It doesnt need to be rebuilt thats inviting disaster. Im not saying it should stay in ruin. But it doesnt need to be developed to heck and back. Its below sea level and in tornado alley. Whatever is built is going to get pumelled again, and people will die.

Im curious, these people saw this huricane comming. I cant help but feel that with weather advances like we have now, where we can see a storm comming days in advance, its their own fault for not leaving town.

Partially yes it is, but in this case many people were to poor to leave. They had no place to go and no money to get there anyway.

Also, I blame the media somewhat. They over-hype smaller storms and when truly big ones come along people are so desensitized they don't listen.

You can make replicas, but i dont think it will ever have the same ring to it, historicly, im in awe that this could have happened with people knowing this beast of a storm was on its way.

What do you suggest they do to the city, DBib? Let it rot? Throw away one of the US's most valuable ports? What about the areas around New Orleans that weren't destroyed, like the North Shore? Let neighborhoods that are in OK shape be left behind because the city is their lifeline?

Rebuild it some, try and build more sound structures that will withstand a storm like that. But the "historical" part of the city, if its rebuilt like it was, will just be killed like the times before it, and people will die all over again.

Pffft. Hmmm... lemme build a city 10ft below sea level, and surrounded on three sides by water! What a great plan!

Leave it to the French for that fantastic idea.


As for the current situation... they should have declared Martial Law BEFORE the storm hit, and shot the first looters on sight. Restore order, before it is lost. But that isn't the happy-frappy way to do things I suppose. Can't shoot anyone anymore... even if they are holding an AK and shooting at evacuation helicopters.
