Many are asking where's the National Guard in New Orleans?
ANSWER: They're in Iraq that's where.Howard Fineman at Newsweek asks:
|"Can America marshal the resources to fight battles in Iraq and rebuild the Gulf Coast? A political storm is brewing."|
You can't fight a war on two fronts. Especially when it's on your own turf.
|"For years the Pentagon’s standing readiness plans required the country to be able to fight two major wars simultaneously. But no one anticipated what we face now: a war in Mesopotamia and another along the Mississippi."|
Hard choices are going to have to be made - and SOON.
