    The problem is that everyone knew the NO levees were garbage. But the governments of NO and LA preferred to squander federal funds for their maintenance/repair for other things because they are ridiculously corrupt.

    Guilty people are the first to start pointing fingers at others when their stupidity bites them in the ass. NO is probably the most corrupt city on the planet, and its mayor (Nagin) is a collossal idiot.

Although you could use more explosive, this is irresponsible demolitions - the rule is to use as little explosive as possible to destroy the target.
    Anfia used the term levee whereas its my understanding that it was retaining walls that were breached, but assuming that a levee was attacked, and you didn't have to destroy the thing to breach it, how much explosive are you talking either with C-4 or the Tim McVay method?

    I was in NO a few months before this hit. Hell, I was thinking of buying a house in the French Quarter.

    The levees didn't need explosives to help them fail. They were fucked because the local government pissed away the money needed to maintain and repair them.

    But again, it's easier to make up boogeymen than face up to the consequences of your actions.

    And Antifa is an idiot anarchist anway.

    Tim McVeigh used Ammonium Nitrate plasticized with high octane petrolium. AN is a low brisance explosive which is about as powerful as gunpowder. The sheer size of the charge was what damaged the building so badly.

    Without knowing the thickness or composition (Reinforced concrete? Earthen levee?) of the levee walls, I am not at all equipped to answer your question. My estimate would be several hundred pounds for a single breach using military quality explosives.

    Thank you and I now understand why it would be difficult to provide a precise answer without the specifications on the location itself.

    So how's the view from that reality you share with Antifa?

    The Bavarian Illuminati was nothing like the secret X-files version of them that's believed in by the tinfoil hat crowd now.

    The closest thing to them is the Bildeberg group.

    I'm not sure I'm reading this right- Nagin and the corrupt governing bodies of NO fucked up and diaster then comes, right? They are the guilty people - are they the people that started the finger pointing game of pass the buck?

    So do you have any news accounts that demonstrate "ethnic cleansing" in NO?
    The Gretna bussiness seems to be a good start. And you validated it yourself.

    The lack of will/ out right impediments to rebuilding the 9th ward qualify IMHO.

    The English press is pretty clear on it : http://www.guardian.co.uk/comment/st...577324,00.html

    Canadian NGOs:

    From the AP: Study: New Orleans could lose 80 percent of black population

    or just run the google search I did and pick the sources you like.

    Of course... confiscatiing guns faciliates this sort of thing.

    Get back to me with what you think,

    You've got 10 minutes to explain why you're using two accounts or they will both be banned.
