Before Katrina hit New Orleans, Bush cut the budget of the Army Corps of Engineers for levee maintenance. So once again we have a disaster carefully engineered to cost billions which could have been prevented at a cost of millions.

The Bush cabal profits from suffering and death. They employ it to take control of resources, as Naomi Klein has demonstrated in her book. I keep thinking the book is called "Shock Economics", but that could be wrong.

The Iraq debacle is no mistake. Every move made by Bush generates crisis, catastrophe, and conflict on purpose. Cynical? Yes. But terribly acute.
