    maybe as many as a billion, homeless, hungry and afraid.  What's to worry about in that scenario?

    I can just imagine what the Republican caucus talks about when they get these military briefings on risk.  What do they say,  "we still have enough active nukes to fix this"?  "we need more drones"  "we're gonna need a bigger boat"

    Because I am sure they don't say," Kock money be damned, we need to save life on this planet."

      They landed food and water - and then they set up a perimeter to guard it - for days - before they started giving anything to the (scary) thirsty, hungry, homeless, injured, etc. people.

      Imagine that you have not even any water to drink, for days, in a tropical country, you may be injured, you may have lost your family along with everything you own, everything has collapsed around you - and in the distance you can see stacks of food and water, behind troops that are keeping you away from it.

      Then the U.N. brought them cholera, on top of everything else.
