The rage of Katrina September 2, 2005Posted by Winter in Uncategorized.
Once again we, as in the whole of humanity we, have been humbled by the true power of nature’s fury as Hurricane Katrina has killed thousands and literally obliterated all in her wake. However, we, as in most of the west, have watched on in a state of something akin to shock and bafflement as the Bush administration fails to visibly help those now in desperate need of clean water.
Law and order has completely broken down, gun shops have been looted, rifles and ammunition stolen and snipers are now shooting at hospital staff and ambulance drivers, whilst doctors battle against deminishing supplies of food, clean water, oxygen and insulin, among other vital supplies. Meanwhile people are dying of dehydration and poor sanitation is leading to the spread of disease, women and children are being raped and the police are out the protecting private property from looting. What the fuck is going on in the worlds Richest nation. As a self procliamed Christian, I hope Bush is having a very hard time sleeping at night as his inaction condems thousands of people to suffering and starvation.
