Hell in a Handbasket

Oh my God... The city is going to hell in a handbasket. May God save the innocent and get them out of that hellhole. This is America! Not war-torn Africa! My God! Where is the Military? There are the APCs and Tanks? What in the world are the people in charge thinking? Bush can not go down there to visit! He might as well pay a surprise visit to Darfur to lend a hand! Get the security under control, for if there is no security, there can be no rescue!

The following comes from a blogger in New Orleans:
It's raining now and I guess that's a relief from the heat. It's hot as hell down there in the sun. Crime is absolutely rampant: rapes, murders, rape-murder combinations.


In case anyone in national security is reading this, get the word to President Bush that we need the military in here NOW. The Active Duty Armed Forces. Mr. President, we are losing this city. I don't care what you're hearing on the news. The city is being lost. It is the law of the jungle down here. The command and control structure here is barely functioning. I'm not sure it's anyone's fault -- I'm not sure it could be any other way at this point. We need the kind of logistical support and infrastructure only the Active Duty military can provide. The hospitals are in dire straights. The police barely have any capabilities at this point. The National Guard is doing their best, but the situation is not being contained. I'm here to help in anyway I can, but my capabilities are limited and dropping. Please get the military here to maintain order before this city is lost.
