ABSTRACT
This article considers a social, political, human and engineering disaster that served as a wake-up call to the fact that something is wrong with the cavalier way the society treats and manages people and nature. Three possible reasons are explored why New Orleans, Louisiana took on a frightening resemblance to the chaos of Iraq despite a sigh of relief greeted the immediate aftermath of Katrina.
