This is what confuses me about Americans.
You scream and thunder about the need for guns to fend off a tyrranical Government. Tell tales of lore about how you would go down in a fiery hail taking those evil troopers down as they try to put you under NWO under control.
Now there are combat boots descending upon New Orleans with the suspension of civil rights following in their wake and you do nothing but nod in acceptance and criticise those who have the gall to be a tiny bit worried.
This fear of utter chaos allows you to accept troops on the ground and that is a very dangerous thing.

So the "mandatory" evacuation that was issued before Katrina hit wasn't really mandatory? With the declaration of martial law it makes it a mandatory "mandatory" evacuation enforced by gun if needed. What if someone doesn't want to leave their house anyways? Do they shoot them?
Why declare martial law in this particular case? It seems to me it would cause more disorder than order.
