    Bush regime refused to fund New Orleans flood and hurricane defences in February

    This piece is interesting in light of Hurricane Katrina, don't you think. I hope citizens of New orleans will now remember how the Bush regime have preferred to spend their money on death and destruction in foreign lands, rather than on trying to save their own citizens' lives:

    The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has identified millions of dollars in flood and hurricane protection projects in the New Orleans district. Chances are, though, most projects will not be funded in the president's 2006 fiscal year budget to be released today. In general, funding for construction has been on a downward trend for the past several years, said Marcia Demma, chief of the New Orleans Corps' programs management branch.
    Let's just go over that again. American citizens' lives have been put on the line because the Bush regime would much rather fork out for an unnecessary, illegal and unjustified crime against humanity overseas rather than pay out for flood and hurricane defences. Citizens of New Orleans should be furious. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts

    This is a long running issue for New Orleans. When Bush was going to put through a project to reconstruct the Iraqi salt water marshes, the people of New Orleans reacted with fury - he had refused a similar project for New Orleans, one the is vitally needed.

    It certainly appears that such a project was, and is vitally needed djeb.
