New Orleans hospital halts patient evacuations after coming under sniper fire...
****Anyone see the movie "Mad Max" recently? This sure seems like a smaller version....possibly to grow to a larger version.****
This also reminds me of the Stephen King novel The Stand.
Is this really true? I mean the initial reports of helicopters under sniper fire were not supported by the National Guard... Sounds like mass hyteria is starting...
Me, me, me, me, I'll go.
Some reporters have said that criminal gangs were planning to go in and loot New Orleans immediately after the hurricane.
Americans need to know if indeed criminal gangs are the ones responsible for the chaos.
Martial law has not been declared. All troops are subject to civilian authority (federal and local).
I'm not sure how to indicate sarcasm on here (obviously), but my intent was to mimick a brainless lib argument about how misspent our military is.
My father called me sonny... Once.
? Allah uuaaaakkkkk barf fight against the Great Satan's infedels?
So the question is, are the NG troops "real" enough soldiers to handle the situation? I have great respect for those NG troops who have served in the Sand Box, but fear for those who have never seen anything like this before. We used to call them the K-Mart Army once upon a time. The name didn't fit all of them, but it did fit many...
Hey, luv - wave at the ocean for me if you would. I just left SD last week and apparently got my flight out just in time.
shooting at hospital workers and NG in helicopters trying to help people out of hospital is beyond words to describe.
Bring in the snipers, bring in the military. Kill anyone running around with weapons.
This is america. Not some 3rd world banana republic.
You heard, didn't you, that they released all the inmates from the NO jail earlier in the week? They're probably cracked-up or speeding by now, like `skinnies' on chat. If armed, they probably can't hit the side of a building and they have no RPGs, at least that we know of.
I saw the Louisiana governor on TV just before the storm hit. She didn't look like she could run a two-car funeral.
This situation can only get worse. Someone has to make the decision to assault these people shooting rescuers, and make them dead. Now.
Never underestimate the lure of a flat screen tv to someone who is brainwashed into mindless consuming by twelve hours of television viewing daily.
And I apologize for the awkward sentence.
Right on....! Only thing is these people think the Government owes them everything!
Like virtually every other social ill, much of the blame for this can be laid at the feet of the libs.
Earlier this week a non European American went out of his way in his car to cross the center line and spit at me as I road my bicycle home from the store carrying some pop. I admit that I'm damaged goods after that.
