It hurts me to say this, but, by applying the same reasoning to New Orleans as the anti-war crowd applies to Iraq, we’ve lost the fight for the below sea level city: New Orleans police ask help in stopping murders. Sorry son (my child lives in the Big Easy) but it’s obvious we can’t handle the unrest and should give it up as a lost cause. Really, how many Americans have to die to bring democracy to NOLA?
I’d like to write more on this topic, but I need to do some research along related lines for Los Angeles. I suspect, much to my regret, that we may have to cut them loose also.
