  1. “The monsoon rains that triggered the disaster are forecast to fall for several weeks yet, meaning the worst may not yet be over.”

    Reminds me of those mudslides in Bangladesh. One catastrophy after another. Floods, famine, diseases.. and with no oil or natural resources – no international interest..


  2. That G’damn G.W. Bush!!!! S.O.B.!!!!


  3. Just crossed my mind here – the Indus river was one of the four cradles of Civilization, along with China, Sumer/Iraq and the Nile. But it all disappeared and is often labeled “mysterious”. Now we probably know why.
