More On Katrina

Mike Taylor asks:

Can anyone tell me the difference between these two events?

Do you recall that the Left in the country were outraged, outraged! that “Bush allowed Baghdad to be looted while the US Armed Forces stood by and watched!”. Are we going to hear from the Left this time when the looting is taking place in New Orleans?

Perhaps, the Armed Forces had better things to do in Bhagdad than prevent theft, just as FEMA has better things to do in New Orleans. Like save lives rather than property.

I dunno. Shooting looters used to be SOP in every civilized country, and damned well SHOULD have been SOP in Iraq 2003. But I think the ready availability of video cameras has a lot to do with this policy having fallen into disfavor.
So do I advocate shooting looters in New Orleans 2005? Damn. Part of me does, but part of me doesn't.

I'm ambivalent PLUS obtuse. I overlooked the built-in solution. The near-omni-presence of video may act to suppress the shooting of looters, which would of course be televised to squeamish audiences. But video tape OF looters, and I hope there's a lot of it, needs to be saved and scrutinized, and used in making hundreds of arrests and prosecutions.
