13. And wasn't there a big group of doctors that got turned away, or it

took endless time to get them assigned and at work with the victims? I don't have the link, but I'll look for it. It might be in the Katrina timeline.

Oh, I see, someone just posted it above!


The chaos in Louisiana is no more of a mistake than the chaos in Iraq was and is--from the initial looting of Baghdad, the insufficient troops to keep order, and the critical water and electrical power problems, to the chaos of the insurgency.

In both cases, the purpose is to create conditions for grandscale looting by the Bushites and their criminal accomplices.

There may be some small comfort in this--that they are really not interested in empire, or ideology, or functioning governments and societies of any kind, even fascist ones. They are only looking for, and creating, opportunities for thievery--for draining our federal coffers dry, for quickly grabbing all resources, for amassing money and property--and in the case of NO, control over property (by federal fiat, by confiscation, by imminent domain, etc.). They don't have the organization, the desire for order, the ambition or the competence to run governments or transform societies (a la the Third Reich). They are just a gang of murderous thieves.

And our military and intelligence establishments aren't going to take this much longer. The Bushites have inspired no loyalty there--because the Bushites are empty people who have no beliefs, just pure self-interest and greed. They have rewarded toadyism, and have punished the best and the brightest. And they have brought disgrace on the military in many ways--with things like their torture and imprisonment violations of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and the Geneva Conventions, and their starting an unjust war and then understaffing it, so that the military can't even win it, let alone pull out with any honor in tact. They have not given people in public service, especially the military, any reason to respect or follow them. And they have utterly abused the troops and the national guard.

This is unlike Nazi Germany, or the Stalin regime. The Bushites purpose is not the same or even similar. It is not empire or ideology. Their purpose is THEFT.

At first I thought that their destruction of morale in the gov't is what caused the utter incompetence in Louisiana. I don't think that now. I think they had the very deliberate motive of creating chaos in order to profit from the disaster. They've done it three times now--9/11, Iraq and Louisiana. Each time, the profiteers are the key--not the phony ideological window-dressing. This may make them easier to defeat and remove from power. Long term, there is only one way to defeat this kind of crime--or the crime that may be worse to follow, an efficient fascist machine run by a War Democrat--and that is, by recovering our right to vote--getting it out of the hands of rightwing electronic voting machine companies, with their secret, proprietary programming code.
