    Weak sea walls blamed for France storm disaster
    Source: Guardian

    Blame is being laid on weak and aged sea defences after violent storms left at least 50 dead and thousands homeless along France's Atlantic coast.

    Many died after the sea wall off the coastal town of L'Aiguillon-sur-Mer was breached, allowing 8m-high (26ft) waves to crash through the streets.

    A local governor said the walls dated back to the time of Napoleon and needed to be replaced with taller barriers.

    3. That's the repuke way.

    Napoleon built the I-35 bridge too?

    That's the DUmmie way. Wait for a natural disaster and then painfully attempt to bend reality to blame Conservatives.

    7. Are they rounding up citizens, starving them, and shooting at them? If not, it's nothing like Katrina.
    Good lord, like Election 2000 stupidity, these idiots never miss a chance, no matter how moronic, to bring up Katrina.

    Earth to fucking dipshits on DU...this storm was in EUROPE!!!!! NOT HERE.
    May the FORCE be with you!

    Yeah. Republicans ignore infrastructure. And who was it who built the interstate highway system? I can't remember his name. Dwight somethingoranother.

    and of course - no democrats or leftists of other ilks have ever passed up the chance to repair levies or sea walls. Conservatives alone have held all the power over these things from the beginning of time.
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.
