I am just amazed of so many things about this tragedy. I am surprice that the National Guard was not prepared to take over the city after the hurricane passed, they had 3 entire days to prepare themselves after the same hurricane passed here in Miami. Now, I have experience with this kind of tragedy because we had one in Venezuela even bigger than this one on Chritmas Eve of 2000 with 50 thousand death. Now, the National Guard will have to start shoting the people because New Orleans is a war zone, any rescue team with experience know that. In cases like this people will look for food and the criminals will take advantage of that. I mean, is the same pattern in every singles situation in every single country. This situation is going to start very uglie and the military will have to use the force at will just as they are doing in Irka but in the US and against their same citizen. The same thing happened in Venezuela and the political situation was so problematic, imagine here in the US!!!! but that will be the only way to regain the control. Just imagine... once a family run out of food... what do you think the father of that family is going to do? he will go outside and get it no matter how. The national guard just have 5.000 people for a city of more of a million. This is going to turn nasty and Bush will have to move pretty quick because the political desitions are going to be very rude: To send the army to kill american citizens if some one gives trouble. Back home the policemen helped the people to brake in the supermarkets IF they needed the food, that is a smart thing to do, but if they carry a plasma tv they get shot. I still so upset about the National Guard being so slow before the hurricane hit, they just didn't care. And now there is a woman saying compalining her meal was cold, welcome to the real world. Actually, to share you a story: After we had the flood in Venezuela everything was chaos. One man came to the military telling them his wife was being raped with an armed man. The police went to the place, took a look and waited for the armed man outside, the the raper came out the police killed him and no question ask, they kept going. Another man was cought with a huge bag full of jewery... take from the bodys of the victims of the flood. Then, forget about a zoo or any other animal in the street, they will be eaten soon. It is very shocking and the problem is that the media and the naive audience is going to see all that, but that is the only way things will happen in that scenario. The, to relocate all that people! what Chavez did was to take everybody to the military base and when the military or the people were tired he just moved everybody to another military base, Chavez never gave them money or a place to live. Then, many kids got stolent and that si the drama you will see next. Many kids will be sold any where else. It is going to take a long time for everything to settle, at list 6 months, no less.
