Fuck that

I was watching the NBC Nightly News last evening, and they showed footage of a U.S. army helicopter being mobbed on a hilltop in Pakistan while delivering much-needed relief supplies to the earthquake victims there, and this is what popped into my head: So the U.S. army can land a helicopter in the middle of Pakistan (where it’s guaranteed that many of the men are armed) to deliver food, but it was logistically impossible to airlift in a flat or five of drinking water to the hundreds of American citizens stranded at the New Orleans convention center in the days after Katrina? Fuck that.
