of the chaos that will ensue after the next major terrorist attacks on these United States. A friend of ours has an entire family in New Orleans and Slidell, LA, whom they have been unable to contact and have no word as to their whereabouts or safety since the hurricane struck. And no way to reach them even if they went down there. His comment was that the elected officials down there have known for years about this possible scenario and did little to prepare in the event of the eventuality. They were mainly interested in lining their own pockets and now, this. Consider this: September 11th happened four years ago. We were unprepared even though Congress had heard about the possible scenario of a jet being flown into the Trade Towers - during hearings on terrorism, testified to by terrorism experts. Yet nothing was done to prevent it. We all know a terrorism attack of major catastrophic proportions is going to happen on American soil one of these days. We know there are terrorists who live among us. Yet, consider the chaos that will ensue when it happens, even though we have been forewarned. What is happening in New Orleans is a glimpse of the chaos and disorganization that will happen after the next major terrorist attacks. Stock up on bottled water and canned food now. Keep batteries in the house. If the jihadists among us decide to go on the big one, going door to door and chopping off heads, the government will be powerless to curtail or stop them, let alone provide our families with water and food. If you don't think it can happen, just remember, the people in New Orleans thought they had made it past the storm after it passed and some on Bourbon Street were planning to party as usual. The people in Noah's day thought he was an old coot. The irony in all of this is the Governor of Louisiana has asked everyone to pray. At the other end of the spectrum, the Air Force has just announced a "no religion policy." America is on the downward slope to destruction. And it is only going to get worse. I am starting to believe that God has removed His Protective Hand from America because of our national sins.
