Rising sea of Arabia and a broken dam forces the Indus river to flow backwards and the Taliban threaten those that take help! WTF?
river changes direction 150 more villages endangered
Things are getting worse and worse for those people as they starve and disease spreads. Meanwhile the people are being threatened not to take help from outsiders and outside aid organizations are being threatened with their lives. WTF? Flooding in Pakistan Spreads South
Officials in flood-ravaged Pakistan urge 500000 new evacuations
survived Pakistan's floods but killed by disease
Take help where you can get it and worry about the repercussions later. Survival first! Go after the Taliban and Al Qaeda later as many have already done. The floods, triggered by unusually heavy monsoon downpours over the upper Indus river basin, are Pakistan's worst natural disaster in terms of the extent of damage caused and the number of people affected.
Put in perspective 2 weeks ago, Maurizio Giuliano, a spokesman for the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, said if the Pakistan government's calculations are correct, the scale of the disaster could be worse than Haiti's January earthquake, the 2004 tsunami, and the 2005 Pakistan earthquake combined.
This is still getting worse and then the disease and people receiving help threatened? Aid workers trying to help them threatened with death or more aptly as the spokesman said when we are against what you are doing you know what that means. Those people need help who cares where they get it. The Taliban and Al Qaeda should be thankful they are getting it and play their deadly games later.
