Troops leave New Orleans

Posted by Richard on March 1, 2009

After three and a half years, National Guard troops are ending their post-Katrina occupation of New Orleans today and completing the withdrawal of all remaining forces.

I think they should have acknowledged that their mission was a mistake and a failure two years ago, and withdrawn the troops then. We have to stop trying to remake the world in our own image. Stop trying to impose our values by military force and laissez les bon temps rouler.

    It’s surprising that this troop withdrawal is receiving decidedly less fanfare than the Iraq withdrawal plan, considering troops are withdrawing from an American city. . .

    Yeah, but I don’t think the occupation of New Orleans involved Halliburton. Or false claims of WMDs. So, no outrage or demonstrations. 😉
