After President Bush launched a war simply to kill innocent Muslims, single-handedly spawned Hurricane Katrina to level the poor black neighborhoods of New Orleans, and went straight for the white residents of Malibu with hellish fires and choking smoke... he has now set his sights on wiping out the working class of Iowa:
(NY Daily News) The streets in Cedar Rapids, Iowa - all 400 blocks of them - were filled with floodwaters and other strange sights: floating Dumpsters and utility poles and sandbags piled in vain.
The cresting Cedar River wreaked widespread havoc Friday on Iowa's second-largest city, forcing the evacuation of 3,000 homes and a downtown hospital while collapsing a railroad bridge.
Houseboats were swept away as the fast-rising river created a lake in downtown Cedar Rapids, where a breach in the levee turned roadways into waterways.
It was the worst Midwest flooding in 15 years, when the Cedar River crested at just over 19 feet - compared with a crest of more than 31 feet yesterday.
The waterlogged sandbags were stacked outside Mercy Medical Center, where 176 patients were transferred out as the waters seeped inside...
Others who failed to heed evacuation warnings were ferried to safety by rescuers in boats, reminiscent on a much smaller scale of the scenes from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.
Helicopter shots from above Cedar Rapids, a city of 124,000, showed cars disappearing and buildings receding in the rising tide.
City officials said more than 400 city blocks downtown were submerged, with more flooding elsewhere - although details on outlying areas were sketchier.
