Over There--Over Here?
OK--I gotta get this out into the open! And this seems like the best place to do this.
I can't help but wonder how many people realize that what's happening in New Orleans is perhaps one of the best glimpses of what's happening in much of Iraq now.
The scale of destruction, the sight of your home and likely most of your life being gone in a matter of seconds, what seems so catastrophic here is seen as "collateral damage" over there.
The lack of power, water, and food driving people to a state of anarchy. While we look in horror at these here, many in the "BushFlock" likely fail to understand that these are many of the same problems that Iraqi citizens face.
Of course, one was the result of nature--the other of empire!
