Laura "Pickles" Bush’s Katrina Amnesia: Slams Burmese Govt. For Ignoring ‘Warnings’ Of Impending Natural Disaster

Quote:
In an “unusual foray into foreign policy” yesterday, First Lady Laura Bush admonished the Burmese government for its “inept” response to the recent cyclone that killed over 20,000 people. The First Lady heaped particularly harsh criticisms on the Burmese government for not adequately warning residents about the incoming storm:

It’s troubling many of the Burmese people learned of this impending disaster only when foreign outlets such as Radio Free Asia and Voice of America sounded the alarm. Although they were aware of the threat, Burma’s state-run media failed to issue a timely warning to citizens in the storm’s path.

. . . . .

In fact, equally harsh criticism could be leveled at President Bush. As Hurricanes Katrina and Rita struck in 2005, Bush was on vacation, and the White House ignored warnings about the dangers ahead.
. . . . . .


Almost as bad as her mother-in-law saying the displaced people of New Orleans were better off after Katrina.

Another case of the White House accomplishing what it wanted to do. The powers that be wanted all of New Orleans to be for the rich white folk and they bulldozed the 'unwanteds' out of town.

Gives new meaning to the term, 'drowning your sorrows'.

If Pickles had any real courage, she would speak out against the plight of women in Yemen:

Is this the worst place on earth to be a woman?

In Yemen, women belong to men. Most are illiterate. They are arrested in the street. They die in childbirth. In this special report, Rachel Cooke meets the brave few who are campaigning for midwives and against early marriage.

Read about it at the link.

Pickles can fuck off. She's been about as interesting a first lady as Pat Nixon was.

Did you know that Pickles killed an ex-boyfriend via vehicular homicide while in high school. Got off due it being an 'accident'.

Perfect for the job apparently.
