Those people weren't really hungry, after all
According to the UK's Mirror, the U.S. is going to be destroying MREs contributed to the Katrina relief effort:
The Ministry of Defence in London said last night that 400,000 operational ration packs had been shipped to the US.
But officials blamed the US Department of Agriculture, which impounded the shipment under regulations relating to the import and export of meat.
However, these MREs would be considered perfectly fine if consumed as NATO rations:
"Under NATO, American soldiers are also entitled to eat such rations, yet the starving of the American South will see them go up in smoke because of FDA red tape madness."
Shipments from Spain and Italy have also been condemned as "unfit for human consumption", according to the Mirror, as well as "housands of gallons of pear juice" from Israel which is also due to be destroyed as "unfit".
Way to go guys -- that's really going to make us popular in the eyes of the rest of the world, not that we were popular to begin with. I'll tell you what's "unfit for humans" -- the goddamn Bush White House, that's what.
