"Little Somalia" or, "The Insurgency"

"An article in the Army Times is referring to American citizens in New Orleans as "the insurgency".

“This place is going to look like Little Somalia,” Brig. Gen. Gary Jones, commander of the Louisiana National Guard’s Joint Task Force told Army Times Friday as hundreds of armed troops under his charge prepared to launch a massive citywide security mission from a staging area outside the Louisiana Superdome. “We’re going to go out and take this city back. This will be a combat operation to get this city under control.”

Also, as we've all seen from the video, hurricane victims were trapped inside Superdome, not allowed to pass through military checkpoint in order to leave.
