Pentagon prepares for hurricane season (WARNING; the Moonie Times)

Bush doesn't know how to deal with anything if he can't send the military.

This is pathetic.

Pentagon prepares for hurricane season�-�Nation/Politics�-�The Washington Times, America's Newspaper:

"COLORADO SPRINGS (AP) -- The Pentagon is buying cellular and satellite phone vans, cutting paperwork to speed delivery of aircraft, troops and supplies to stricken areas and already is sending military officers to Gulf states ahead of the hurricane season that starts June 1.

But military officials fear falling short of the public's expectations when the next storm hits, given that the memories of New Orleans' devastation are still vivid and frustration with the federal response still raw.

'The expectations of our citizens ... have gotten so high that regardless of the responder -- local, state, National Guard and Defense Department -- folks will be disappointed that they can't get everything they need right away,' said Adm. Timothy Keating, commander of U.S. Northern Command. "
