New Orleans?

Iraq? Beirut? or post-Tsunami Aceh? I watched CNN in disbelief as the footage of the storm ravaged city of New Orleans with its refugees struggling to survive without food, water, medicine and proper sanitation.

what irony as the stretched authorities deployed national guard troops, fresh off the plane from Iraq, to maintain law and order.
