Speaking to the BBC recently about the situation in Burma after the typhoon, Condoleeza Rice, the US Secretary of State said:
“”It’s a quite unusual situation actually that you have a country in these desperate straits with its population in the circumstances that this population is in – and you get a kind of stone cold face about people who just want help.”
She’s absolutely right. It is an unusual situation. Now, let me see, when was the last time such a circumstance existed………
……oh, yes, I remember, it was in 2005……when Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans.
