Commentary: Disaster Response

The People's Republic of China has responded to a devastating natural disaster with immediate deployment of 130,000 military troops and thousands more rescue workers under the precise coordination of an engaged top national authority. I can't help but compare this heartfelt effort with our own government's response to Hurricane Katrina, and can't help but wonder how many troops could be brought to bear in a similar national disaster here in the United States.

Respectfully yours,
Grant Houston
