Julian Bray comments: "Just cannot believe the BBC led the news with the Dr Kelly debacle, did he or didn't he? (he did). Tucked away is the latest on the Pakistan disaster now known to be worse than all the recent major flood disasters put together and literally MILLIONS of children will die first and very soon now. A whole future generation wiped out. But why is the rest of the world sitting on its hands?"
"How much has the briefly absentee President Z pitched in, has he emptied his Swiss bank accounts? And Pakistan has nuclear weapons....ooooh! You see where this is going? But my rant is not about the money, it is about the world help organisations, I assumed there were warehouses packed to the roof with emergency supplies, boats, medical equipment but no, they don't have any! The money is paid out locally for supplies and of course as there are local shortages the costs have massively escalated, for NGO's and locals alike.
"If its a flood and the ground is fifteen feet under foul wet sewerage, logic would suggest that covered inflatable closed canopy liferafts which inflate on hitting the water (and double as shelter on dryish land) would be mass airdropped, pre-loaded with bottled water and high energy biscuits. But no, emergency organisations on the ground are still treating this as a 'normal' disaster sending trucks into areas and then wondering why with bridges washed away the strategy isn't working.
"Then taking this further why would the world wish to support the current Pakistan Government, our own David Cameron after all laid down the markers just a few days before nature delivered a body blow to the country? Let natural causes decimate a generation or two, that neatly deals with Pakistan and its troublesome neighbour Afghanistan... weakened so no longer a threat to our own national security , only the pakistani bombers and terrorists are second generation Brits!
"Someone in the Caoalition and other World Leaders tell me this isn't true? Prove it with the biggist peacetime mobilisation of every available resource and fund it all with a compulsory levy on all developed nations, after all Europe seems to interfere in UK decision making ...time it worked the other way round before its too late and that may even be tomorrow...too late, I mean."
