A category F5 tornado virtually destroyed the town of Greenburg, Kansas this weekend.

Now the rebuilding begins.

Cnnsebelius320240Except, not so much:

The rebuilding effort in tornado-ravaged Greensburg, Kansas, likely will be hampered because some much-needed equipment is in Iraq, said that state’s governor.

Governor Kathleen Sebelius said much of the National Guard equipment usually positioned around the state to respond to emergencies is gone. She said not having immediate access to things like tents, trucks and semitrailers will really handicap the rebuilding effort.

Just another concsequence of the "war to keep us safe here at home".
