What's interesting and irrelevant here is where are all the ATS hardcore neocon supporters. Where is your great leader when tragedy strikes?
It is mind boggling to hear that any international support is being refused. My god I really couldn't believe that this government could be so
disorganized and helpless.
I pray for these people and have contributed my small share in the hopes that some good can start to happen. God bless the people hit by this awful

Though I resent the "hardcore neocon supporters" moniker ( I thought we were going to stop doing that in ATS?), I will say that Bush is
involved and concerned about the situation. He just arrived in Mississippi again and conferred with governors, members of the Coast Guard, and others,
inside a hangar. He left to tour the distressed sites by air and on foot. This is his second trip to the area.
More National Guard are arriving to restore order and protection to everyone, including those that don't deserve it - those gangs of losers that are
taking pot shots at rescue workers.
As far as accepting help from other nations, that also is changing. The US has asked for and been granted petroleum assistance from the EU. I'm as
puzzled as the next person why we have refused onsite
help from other nations.
