We need them at home. Fuck Iraq. Blanco should demand it immediately.

2. I read online that we have way more than we need in the flood area
Do you think, after estimating damage, that we still have more NG than needed?

3. It's not just people, it's the equipment
and from what they are saying tonight, the rescue people just in NO alone are utterly overwhelmed and there is lack of suitable boats and other equipment, much of which was apparently taken to Iraq. The rationale was, it's okay, if they need more people and equipment, they will get it from Mississippi -- and guess what? Barbour is not going to say a thing but Dems in LA should really raise a huge stink.

4. They all should, LA and MS,
Edited on Mon Aug-29-05 11:51 PM by BamaGirl
because MS is getting ppl and equipment from Bama. My hubby's leaving early in the morning. I don't know who they're sending yet, other than his bn. (We have our MP's and rescue units here because all ours have already been deployed the max amount.)

7. Yeah, I think that's
our bn and some rescue units. This would be the same group that got mobilized for Dennis, but some will stay in Mobile I'm sure.
