well regardless of what people think, i grew up in new orleans , my dad was a new orleans policeman, and i have lots of family , in N.O. also family that owns business there, i did move out the city 6 years ago but not far enough , my house still took a beaten from hell. but it is salvagable.as far as the response time getting help to the people all the blame goes straight to our very ingorant govenor and mayor. first of all. bush signed for federal disaster 2 days before the storm hit which gave the govenor the powers to call the troops in, but she refused for four days after the storm hit , she and the mayor had 650 buses at their disposal to get people out but she didn't use them . the buses ended up under water, amtrack had a train available and gave the govenor all rights to put the people on it and get them out of n.o. but she sent the train out of new orleans empty. she refused to let the red cross and fema in the first 2 days. as far as the leveys the federal gov. has been giving louisiana funds every year to fix and maintain them, let's see n.o. took 50 million of that money recently and built a courthouse , thats just an example of how the levy money was spent. but this goes all the way back to 1965 when hurricane betsy hit , louisiana has been receiving money for levy protection and failed to do the right thing, as much as i love my state and my family history in new orleans the blame goes back 40 years to all the louisiana politicians that failed to spend the levy money on let's see maybe the levy's . so bottom line my home state politicians failed louisiana.also thanks to all the people contributing to the katrina funds , myself and family and friends have benifited from all who contributed. last week i was in new york / new jersey and i was greatly impressed to see all the businesses and people sending money to louisiana. thanks to all of you.

Richard K. Moore

In the article below, Brzezinski launches a full-scale attack on Bush and the

war in Iraq. He even calls for an early withdrawal, leaving the Iraqi's to sort

things out for themselves, one way or the other.

I find it challenging to fathom what Brzezinski is up to here, or where he's

coming from.

We might start by recalling two items from his past. The first regards the war

between the USSR and Afghanistan, of which Brzezinski was one of the architects,

and which he afterwards publicly bragged about as being a coup in the cold war.

In order to launch this war, various Islamic terrorist organizations were

created, armed, and funded by the CIA, recruiting from all over the Middle East.

They were unleashed in order to draw the Soviets into their own Vietnam

quagmire. The world "Taliban" means student; in particular a student of the CIA

terrorist schools. This was an act of state-sponsored terrorism on the part of

the U.S., leading predictably to a very dirty and bloody conflict. The war was

also accompanied by a Matrix campaign which portrayed the terrorists as

domestic, self-motivated freedom fighters.

The second item to recall is Brzezinski's recent book (1997), "The Grand

Chessboard". A primary thesis of the book is that the U.S. should not shrink

from empire: we are top dog now and should take whatever measures are necessary

to maintain that position, as the world's first truly global empire. In a very

real sense, the PNAC agenda can be seen as a specific battle-plan drawn up in

order to fulfill the strategic vision Brzezinski articulated. In addition, the

Patriot Act is in some sense a response to Brzezinski's warning that "Democracy

is inimical to imperial mobilization".

With these observations in mind, let's examine some of Brzezinski's statements...................



So far, it seems Brzezinski is simply doing a hatchet job on Bush, using his

prestige, saying whatever works as anti-Bush propaganda. This would indicate

that the CFR-level community is ready to dump Bush, as they dumped Nixon, hoping

that all the shit will stick to him as they flush him away, as it did with

Nixon: the scapegoat scenario. Compounding U.S. political dilemmas is the

degradation of America's moral standing in the world. The country that has for

decades stood tall in opposition to political repression, torture and other

violations of human rights has been exposed as sanctioning practices that hardly

qualify as respect for human dignity.................





Brzezinski knows full well that the U.S. will never vacate Iraq. We've built,

and are still building, very permanent military bases, establishing just the

kind of imperial infrastructure Brzezinski himself so eloquently promotes. He

never mentions in this article the elephant in the kitchen - oil - and he knows

full well that the U.S. will never relinquish control over those reserves now

that control has been achieved. The PNAC document says that the issue of Iraq

transcends the issue of Saddam's regime; similarly it transcends Bush's regime.

Brzezinski is simply taking a 'high moral ground' position with his withdrawal

ruse, donning the feathers of a dove, knowing that the stand has no practical

political relevance............................



This way the U.S. gets everything it ever wanted in Iraq - bases and oil - and

it can free its troops from an engagement that never did serve any useful

purpose for 'U.S. interests'. The world will be so relieved to see the end of

the unpopular war that they will not challenge our residual presence and role,

nor will they berate us for Bush's prior mistakes. Bush served a useful purpose

by getting us into Iraq and creating a situation so grotesque that anything less

will now be perceived as being acceptable. He took a mile and we can keep the

inch we really want..........
