Katrina turns out to be a real bitch after all.

Early assessments reported that hurricane Katrina pulled her punches a bit when she finally made landfall, but the worst was yet to come after she passed by with a levee in New Orleans giving away flooding 80% of the city to scores of deaths in Mississippi. The storm surge in Biloxi was upwards of 25 feet and the death toll everywhere is expected to climb. If you can spare the help then I’m sure the American Red Cross could use it:

  1. I can’t believe this thread has no comments!!!!!!!  WTF is wrong with our “friends” from outside the U.S.?  Any words of condolences from you?

    When disasters hit, the biggest portion of aid to those afflicted almost always without fail comes from the U.S.  Despite that what do we usually hear?  Oh yeah, I remember reading here something to the effect of “you stingy rich bastards didn’t give enough” despite the facts.

    Thanks you ever so much.  Thanks.  Glad to know where you stand.

  2. Damn…chill.  As a person from Mississippi, I know rants like that won’t help.

  3. Wasn’t meant to help or hurt anything.  Was just a comment about the absolute lack of fucking human compassion from the rest of the world.

  4. Shut up Consi. This post was made just yesterday, you should consider that the international readers of Stupid Evil Bastard may not have time to respond yet, especially taking timezone differences into account before you accuse us about having an “absoloute lack of fucking human compassion”. Of course those of us outside the USA have compassion for the victims of this disaster. I for one have been trying to get in contact with a friend of mine from Alabama (he’s safe and sound in, of all places, Korea). Your rant, as much as it understandable – driven no doubt by frustration with what you see as the silence of the international community, does not help anyone. Especially since condolences are in fact flooding in from around the world.

  5. Speaking of aid, especially from outside the US, I’ll bet you will never guess who the first two countries to offer assistance to the US are.  Is it our Zionist “friends” Israel who get half of all our foreign aid?  Nope.  Mayhaps our friends from Saudi who make sure we get our oil fix- for the right price of course?  Guess again.  Egypt, England, Spain, or Germany?  All no.  No, the first two countries to offer concrete aid are Canada and Venezuela.  Yep, two of the countries who have had to put up with heaps of abuse from the likes of Bush and Robertson and others of their ilk are among the first to offer aid workers and Chavez has even offered oil!!!  No doubt, he has put some chemical in it to turn us all into godless Commies!  lol  
    Here is the article.

  6. Consi, the affected people DO have our compassion. However, we were pretty slow to understand how extensive the whole thing is. Obviously the coverage in the US is much more immediate than here.

  7. Just been catching up on the latest details. On the BBC website, there’s a story from a reporter who was approached by a man wanting to help save the lives of 60 people in a retirement home, stranded and running out of clean water.
    Also found a post on livejournal, which I felt I had to draw your attention to.

    As for all those people in the thick of it, I can’t offer anything much except a few bucks to the Red Cross and a few words of sorrow and empathy for the terrible losses you have endured and will continue to endure.

    Having thought this over, I do have to say that you were partly right. There WAS (both in my own mind, and in the outspoken words of some people around me) a ‘Oh well, they got some of their own medicine now!’-feeling.

    No pretty at all. And I’d better stop this post of mine before I defend myself too much for it. At the end, its simly sad that relations between the US and the rest of the world have to to that.
