Followup on being unprepared

Evidently I'm not the only one who is shocked and awed with what he is seeing in Louisiana.

Says Mithras in Fables :'s a shocking demonstration of how Bush's failure to be honest about the sacrifices necessary to fight the war in Iraq puts us all at risk. The Louisiana National Guard is elsewhere, so people in New Orleans die waiting to be evacuated as a direct consequence of Bush's fecklessness. Every dollar diverted from domestic emergency preparedness to Iraq is a bullet aimed at a American at home. Bush is supporting the troops by killing their families at home.

[This] shows that we are totally unprepared for a large-scale terrorist attack. In the event that a nightmare scenario comes true - say, a small nuke in New York - you are on your own, kids. The Bush plan: let 'em die, then stand on their graves and give a speech about how resolute you are.
