A squad of 300 National Guard troops landed in anarchic New Orleans fresh from Iraq on Thursday, with authorization to shoot and kill "hoodlums", Louisiana Governor Kathleen Blanco said.
"Three hundred of the Arkansas National Guard have landed in the city of New Orleans," said Blanco.
"These troops are fresh back from Iraq, well trained, experienced, battle tested and under my orders to restore order in the streets,"
"They have M-16s and they are locked and loaded."
"These troops know how to shoot and kill and they are more than willing to do so if necessary and I expect they will," said Blanco. [MORE]
