disgrace

The situation in New Orleans shows that our government is a disgrace. I am ashamed to be part of a country that has enabled such a total lack of regard for human life.

It's really difficult watching it from here. I think the thing which sticks in the minds of overseas folk is that the US government initially did nothing... until the international media started asking where is the US gov'nt aid? This suggested to international observers that the US government is catalysed by public (international) humiliation, rather than a sense of duty to help its own people. Which is quite a concern... to see in a country which parades its religion like second flag. Yes, this duplicity is of concern to international observers.
