My friend mentioned to me that after hurrican katrina, aid arrived from all over the world including several tons of ration packs (the same as those used by uk troops) from the uk which was never distributed as it was deemed unsuitable for human consumption and is currently held in a warehouse waiting to be destroyed along with food from italy and spain - I've not heard of this in the media and can't believe that this could actually happen - can anyone shed any light on this?

According to the news a few days ago aid has already been destroyed from Europe as it couldn't be confirmed what parts it came from. Terrorist threats etc. MAD.

They only did that to "save face". They can hardly be seen as "weak" in front of other nations.
Of course theres nothing wrong with the packs the EU sent them, they just made up an excuse to avoid using them.

Still, nobody actually starved to death after katrina did they?

Have you seen the size of some americans? They wouldn't starve to death after several months, let alone days.

Ok, it seems that this did actually happen but in a world where people are dying of hunger, could'nt they simply redistribute? mind you, having just come off the CNN news website, amongst the headlinig big news about the earthquake in pakistan and the landslides in south america, on the main page, there's a newsclip about the national 'grilled cheese eating competition' where the aim is to cram as many of the said snacks down down the bloated guts of these 'sportsmen' as possible - I guess when you 've enjoyed the best that life has to offer, in the event of a national emergency, rations are a definite no no!
