Is he an engineering specialist in structure ,mechanical or explosives of any kind?
Did he hear this from residents there that the conspirators planted explosives?
Are you aware that of the many supposed eye-witnesses not a single one could did actually come forward to say that they saw and could identify these conspirator?
If your friend has no knowledge of anyting regarding construction than I suggest you stop mentioning him.
Care to list them for me what you considered racist acts during the 'ordeal'?I wouldn't want to put my foot in my mouth.I'll let you do that.
Address all the rest of the racism invovled in the whole ordeal.
.I was called on that once here.You know if you paid attention you will noticed that it's not a single reporter making these statement but rather a whole bunch of them from different magzines and news agencies.You can't group all the negative press and positive one into one lump and and say it validates your claims
No the news was busy with its own racist justifications.
Black people "loot".
White people "find supplies" nuff said
You must be young.Listen the goverment never wants to put money into projects that may help save lives.They only begin construction projects after a natural disaster hits.Never before.
A former official in the Clinton administration, Sydney Blumenthal, has written in Der Spiegel: "In early 2001, the Federal Emergency Management Agency issued a report stating that a hurricane striking New Orleans was one of the three most likely disasters in the US, including a terrorist attack on New York City.
So why not deal with it? Who suffers the most? What lead to the "bureaucratic buggling and indifference? A shift in priorities due to the global war on terror?
Or the fact that the government does not really give a **** about the lives and property of poor black people?
Los Angeles and San Francisco are cities that are both due for major earthquakes to hit.The residents of these cities have been aware for decades that the risk exist.Does that scare people away?Of course not.The municipal governments have been aware but their hands are hugely tied because they could never obligate construction companies to bring their building projects up to code, that wont increase cost or scare investors,in the event of a major natural event.Not for a earthquake that could happen in 10 years or 100 years or never.
Is their a conspiracy there?Maybe.Only in the sense that they don't wish to lose the prestige that the both cities have worked hard to get.
I' never going to forget that.Trust me.
I'm not "just being an asshole". I'm asshole to the core. Dont you forget it.
I don't know.Maybe the 30 million asian voters in america.I'm just guessing
Why is that "out of control beuracracy" indifferent to the plight of the people of NOLA. Why can that same buraucracy provide better relief to and more money to war-torn south asia then LA?
Priorities? Or Racism? or are they somehow linked?
Very interesting read.
One of the issues raised in An Evening with Betsy and in any casual rehashing of Hurricane Betsy's devastation is the speculation that the Army Corps of Engineers, at the behest of the city, actually blew up the levee at a certain point in the storm, thus sacrificing the neighborhoods in that vicinity in order to spare the French Quarter from extreme damage. While it is true that the Florida Avenue levee was breached and that led to greater flooding in the Ninth Ward and Chalmette, so far there have only been rumors that this breach was intentional.
Since you are posting links.Here is one link I read a while ago.I could ask that you read it with an open mind.But since you seem to be the paranoid sort I know you wont give me that much.
I read this back in Januray.it's interesting.It's kind of a long read but I copied pasted this interesting part.A black man from a hard hit area of NewOrleans calling a live air radio show to ask where was government aid.Immediately after a woman froma affluent are an of New-Orleans calls in to ask the same question.
What do you make of that?

So here is the next question. In the majority of episodes of ethnic cleansing and genocide. Bosnia, Nazi Germany, Armenia, Kurdistan and Saddam Hussain, Rwanda, there are news reports that indicate that repression and slaughter is going on, even though such accounts do not provide the full story.
So do you have any news accounts that demonstrate "ethnic cleansing" in NO?

Of course not. EVERY SINGLE PERSON in the media is a part of the coverup.
All several hundred thousand of them, to a man.
Any particular reason why you're also using the EmetShamash account, or should I just go ahead and ban you now for sockpuppetry?

How many pounds of high brisance explosives, for shits and giggles let's say Composition - 4 (an RDX based plastic explosive with a RE index of 1.32) would it take to breach a levee? For fun we can go ahead and say that the bomber was a proficent demolitions engineer and was able to properly shape and prime both the main and booster charges as well as set up the fuse instantanious (det cord) so as not to destroy the other charges set up in paralell. He was also able to transport the literal tons of earth needed for tamping a charge of this magnitude. The operation was set up between the time when hurricane Katrina was 100% certain to hit NOLA and the time it made landfall. The charges were properly detonated during the hurricane. There's only one being in the universe who could set something like this up.
So it looks like either way, God had it in for NOLA.
I've dealt with a great deal of extremists in my former line of work, and it's funny. Despite the ideology, religiosity, or any other factors these individuals use to justify thier action, they all behave more or less the same. Fringe groups, be it the KKK, rural militias, Black Panthers (even the "New" ones,) Al Queda, or anarchists, are nothing more than an organization of disenfranchised sociopaths looking for excuses to harm other people for their own personal enjoyment. Any belief system or ideology is a willingly self imposed lie used to justify thier destructive and sadistic impulses. Radicalism or Reactionism is not a force for change, nor is it looking out for the best interests of humankind. It is simply there to give a wide spectrum of psychopathic behaviors a thin veneer of legitmacy.
In every great event in history there are always a crowd of people who don't wont to take things at face value.The sinking of the Lusitania,the attack on Pearl-harbor,the assassination of John F Kennedy.That crowd will find any drescrepency to validate their belief in a all encompassing conspiracy.Afterall.How can a great man such as JFk be killed by a born loser with a grudge against the world.But when you add the belief of people working in the shadows.Than you are on a totally different plane of reality.Like Antifa.

Tamping a charge is placing sandbags, dirt, or sometimes water against the open portion of the charge to focus the blast into the object you're trying to demolish. Tamping allows you to use less explosvie for a project. If you don't use it, a great deal of the blast energy will dissipate out into the open air. Although you could use more explosive, this is irresponsible demolitions - the rule is to use as little explosive as possible to destroy the target.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is why we have the Military tag.
