'Shoot to kill', troops told



Iraq-tested US troops with shoot-to-kill orders were deployed in New Orleans today to restore law and order after days of chaos and looting in the hurricane-devastated city.

Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco said the 300 troopers from the Arkansas National Guard had been authorised to open fire on "hoodlums'' who have been terrorising the flooded city in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

Their deployment came amid intense criticism of the government for a tardy response to the disaster, which is feared to have killed thousands of people and left hundreds of thousands more stranded and homeless.

"These troops are fresh back from Iraq, well trained, experienced, battle tested and under my orders to restore order in the streets,'' Blanco said.

"They have M-16s and they are locked and loaded.

"These troops know how to shoot and kill and they are more than willing to do so if necessary and I expect they will,'' said Blanco.


How long until these looters are tagged with "terrorist"? Or are they already?

The priorities are: Food, Water, Shelter and Medical supplies.
To hell with the televisions and clothes stores.

It would appear that the authorities see this catastrophe as an opportunity for a domestic military exercise in martial law rather than helping their own citizens with the basics of human survival.

Probably the same time you are tagged with the ability to think without forcefed propaganda.
