I’m back. In reference to my earlier post way back. I had this all typed up and couldn’t maintain my uplink to post.
…but so far at least…
Yep, dodged the bullet and got hit by a train. It is very hard/almost impossible to patch a breached dike or levee system at high water. I hope they pull it off somehow but it looks like the basin will fill.
Shouldn’t we have had a Carrier Group ready to move in off shore and be a floating city for evac staging and medical triage? Fema and the feds have had War-college/game-theory studies on hand for years that show exactly what a FUBAR New Orleans getting hit would be.
OK, this thread got out of hand while I was gone so I will comment cautiously. I have been involved in a few mobilizations as well as a few bugg-outs over the years. In my opinion the “it takes time” crap being spouted by the government talking heads on TV is pure BS. The “it takes time” to mobilize forces and re-route personal and supplies only washes if you have no advanced notice. We knew days in advance that the gulf coast and N.O. specifically were going to get hit harder than they have ever been. Yes it does take days for everything to flow down the pipe, but we had days before Katrina hit to start sending things down the pipe.
I have a bunch of nurse friends that want to go help and have me along as security, will update you on that but I am leaning against it. We are setting up a safe house and should be able to take in some people in a week or two.
