Holding Back

These came to me via an anonymous email, and it says a whole lot more about U.S. than just water control:

This is a British levee:

The Dutch keep the ocean out:

Too bad we don't have images of the war on poverty, medicaid, medicare, the social security safety net, the budget, highway infrastructure, ........

Just about anything except the military.
