Whack-A-Mole

But of course they do. From Roto-Reuters:
Protesters draw link between Katrina and Iraq war

President George W. Bush's faltering performance after Hurricane Katrina, like his decision to invade Iraq, show his priorities are at odds with actions needed to keep Americans safe, anti-war protesters said on Monday.
Again, it's all Bush's fault the Louisiana democrats failed to do their job. (Click the link, dammit! It will open in a new window.)

But wait! There's more!
Cindy who? Oh, her! She popped up again!
"One of the bogus reasons that George Bush gives for this invasion (and) occupation of Iraq is to make America safer -- and Katrina exposed that clearly he has made America more vulnerable through his policies in Iraq," anti-war activist and bereaved mother Cindy Sheehan told a morning news conference.
Okay, it's really sad that she's using Katrina to promote her agenda, but nevertheless, she's still talking out her ass. How exactly is it that we're now more vulnerable, since we've clearly displayed that we're ready and willing to put up a fight if we need to?
U.S. troops fighting an unexpectedly stubborn insurgency in Iraq should come home to help face domestic challenges like the unprecedented humanitarian relief and recovery effort on the Gulf Coast, said the activists, who will stage a march on Washington this weekend.
Fuck those Iraqi people. They don't need or deserve our help anyway.

You know, the world keeps on-a-turnin'. Even though there are some things we need to take care of here, there are still a lot of things which need taken care of abroad. We can't just abandon our other duties.

Again I say, we have thousands of armed forces personnel who are not stationed overseas. They're right here in the country - believe it or not - and can be sent where they are needed, when they are needed. Sort of like how they were sent to New Orleans a week or so ago. Remember?

They're ready to go and do their job. Unless some local government officials refuse their help.

The link between Iraq and Katrina is ridiculous. What a stretch!

If our bi-partisaned governments (local/state/federal) don't learn to play nice, we're all going to hell in a handbasket!

Way off the whats her name topic,some where in every katrina/irag story a lib is complaining about halaberton getting a no bid contract. I worked for,at the time , the fifth largest contractor in the world. At its largest, it had about 1/10th the employie force halaberton has. purchasing or renting the equipment, haveing the personell and material all figures in. If there is no other conteactor in the world big enough to make a fair bid, why go through the proccess. but there are contractors that can, you say. well no there arn't. werer not talkin about a wal-mart here.

Rachael,
Agreed.

aus...,
We'll start paying dearly when complaints are loud enough to where gov't has to start giving bids on some sort of deregulated 'next in line' basis, if that ever happens.
