If this was any Canadian city, we be having a vote on whether or not to set up a committee to deal with the cleanup. There would be another vote on the members of the committee. There would be another vote on which corporation would be awarded the contract of cleaning up the mess. And then there would be 10 additional votes on which areas to clean up first. (Total time 1 year from now) Then once work had actually started, there would be 3 strikes, based on working conditions and wages, and the overall cost of the cleanup would be four times the amount initially quoted by the winning bid, and take three times longer. Sound about right?

"It's been 6-1/2 years since hurricane Katrina...."

those victims were mostly black and/or lower class white people. we dont give a poo about them...

"where did all the debris go? there's only so much you can burn, so ....?"

probably got recycled. something the states should learn to do a bit more :|

@ChrisP12
It's because the allies won the war, and they put restrictions on Germany and Japan, because they knew if the Japanese were left to their own devices, they could destroy the USA very easily.

Which, judging from what I'm seeing here, isn't too farfetched.

it's quite an amazing place, there's just a dfferent kind of work ethic there... plus with the amount of people there they need all the space they can get, so it's no wonder it was all cleared so quickly.

Japan doesn't put a lot of money into it's military because they are constitutionally prohibited from having an army or a navy that couldn't defend itself against the state of Kansas. Class can anyone tell me why? Here's a hint: The USS Missouri.

oh yeah just clearing up some rubble, get the swiffer!

in 11 months all of the rubble is out of their cities? that to me is still pretty outstanding. Take a look at how they build houses in Japan, in just under 3 months. I think "rebuilding time" is just around the corner and a year from now it'll look a lot better.

It is astounding to see once-cities and neighborhoods so barren now... Ready for rebuilding, yes. But it really shows just how much was lost.

Altaru: I can only assume that that is good, in your opinion, because of your choice to "keep it secret".

I know that anyone thinking good of me here is chastised, so I believe your secrecy is warranted.

@madest: Bush declaired an emergency 3 days BEFORE it hit, I saw it on TV, he didn't leave anyone stranded.
The Mayor dithered about ordering an evacuation, the crazy people shooting at rescue workers, the looting, I suppose Bush is responsible for that too?

I'll post something someone said on the site:

"This article tells two stories: (1) all the debris has been cleared away and (2) exactly zero reconstruction has happened to date. The debris has all been piled up on the outskirts of towns, neatly sorted by type: wood, cars, tyres, metal etc. There is too much debris to put into landfills etc. (Ishinomaki, for example, has more debris than would be created in 100 years of normal activity) so, out of sight of your cameras but not hidden from local residents, there are massive debris piles that serve as a daily reminder of the tradgedy. There are also tens of thousands of people still living in temporary housing with no clear indication of when they might have a new home to go to. Clearing up the rubble over an 11 month period isn't really something to boast about - it was actually done much quicker than that but, the key issue, is that no reconstruction has yet happened.

Wow. It looked like scenes from an apocalyptic movie or something. I wouldn't even know where to begin to start. Props to Japan.
But where did it all go? Can you just burn all that?

You know, Crakr, I suspected as much...

It just seemed uncharacteristic in my opinion of you.

Now, whether that's good or bad is going to stay my secret.

rather than wallowing in their own filth until the government intercedes
--------
Somebody slept through the George Bush presidency. Residents of Katrina were left on their roofs for 5 days. The ones that made it out were left to fend for themselves at the Superdome. Residents were not allowed back in even to help clean so your association is nonsense.

So you're saying that because the Japanese have a little self respect and try to get things done on their own initiative, rather than wallowing in their own filth until the government intercedes, that they're somehow better than the largely African American community affected by Katrina? That's racist.

SmagBoy1: Somebody messed with the description I submitted. I didn't compare Japan to Katrina, so some mod, or fancy, decided to modify it.

So please address them about comparing Japan's clean-up with Katrina, because it didn't come from me.

All I got to say is, this is what happens when people and governement work together.....

....not sit around and wait for the government to do something for you. N.O. is as much the people's fault as it is the government, but dont say that out loud because thats apparently racist.
