after the atomic bomb was dropped.

Do you think that was an appropriate comparison?

I agree.
No it wasn't appropriate.
Nor is it appropriate for people to keep comparing the destruction in New Orleans to the destruction in Iraq.
Give me a fucking break...:rolleyes:

It was a stupid comparison not so much that hundreds of thousands died a horrible death in Hiroshima, but also because the event is a politically sensitive one and shouldn't be carelessly used. If the death toll was a lot higher, I doubt he'd bring up Auschwitz.

What do you mean, "do you see now?"
Of course I see...the United States is behind both.
But that's not what I'm talking about...I'm talking about the mere fact that this disaster was a natural disaster that couldn't have been helped.
The disasters in Hiroshima and Iraq were preventable.
Not only that, the grand scale of those disasters aren't even comparable to what hurricane Katrina did.
It's just ridiculous to make those comments.

I agree. It was :retard: You can compare a natural disaster with Hiroshima. And it's pretty obvious what event was worst
