    Yes but, that farmland used to be wetlands years ago and they reclaimed it for farming purposes. There is a great deal of this in Japan so this isn't something that was completely unexpected. Not to lessen it in any way but, land that was once under water and through the engineering efforts of man was reclaimed will always be in danger of flooding.

    And I would say that the after picture of the nuclear power plant is now no longer accurate as that is the plant that has had several explosions and is int he process of a meltdown in at least one reactor.

    Katrina was nothing compared to this.

    Here is a lower level photo taken by a US Navy Helicopter helping out in the rescue efforts in Sendai:

    Wow, there's going to be allot more than the 10,000 dead that they are reporting now.

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Me too. But, I bet Japan will be well on its way to being rebuilt long before we have Katrina's damage repaired...and we have a big head start.

    I have been watching the coverage on CNN as much as I can. They have a reporter attached to Virgina Task Force 1 Urban Search & Rescue team while they are deployed as part of USAID.

    You are right, there are no animals looting and raping people. They are dealing with this tragedy with dignity.

    Very true. That is indeed the biggest difference at all between the two events.

    One official even recently stated that there have been ZERO reports of looting in any of the cities. Nothing. Nada. That is so incredible.

    Here so many are in very desperate shape, and no matter what, they will not steal from their fellow citizens. Instead, people are generously helping others.

    Japan is a very homogeneous society, though, with a culture of respect and duty that has been developed for thousands of years.
