500,000 America haters evacuated

From the department of God-is-punishing-those -who-support-terrorism:
More than half a million people have been ordered to evacuate parts of the US state of California being engulfed by massive wildfires.

Fierce winds are fanning at least 16 fires that have razed land from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border.

The blazes have left two people dead and destroyed more than 1,200 homes and businesses, say officials.

President George W Bush will visit the state on Thursday, after declaring a state of emergency in seven counties.

A White House spokeswoman said Mr Bush, whose administration was accused of a sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina two years ago, wanted to "witness first-hand" the crisis.

Up to 300,000 acres (120,000 hectares) of land have been scorched - an area bigger than New York City.
Burn baby burn! Let those America haters suffer.

Meanwhile, in North Carolina, terrorists continue to prevent rainfall from watering the promised land...

I've looked at the Glenn Beck links but I cannot undertand WHAT he is on about. And I decided not to try.

Whilst in San Diego they are talking fires out of control and 50,000 buildings at risk. CNN Anderson 360 is covering it with a dramatic fire backdrops whilst also advertising the next show "Planet at Peril" (Global warming) - I suppose Wild Fires are more likely now - last lot here was closest ever to our place. Praise God for the Crane helicopters. I saw them in California just now and a DC10 - some unreal flying going on .
