Did you know that 2.4 million Pakistanis have been displaced as the U.S. and its proxy government in Pakistan bombs the crap out of residential areas in hopes of snagging a few Taliban fighters? Women and children are dying by the hundreds due to the bombs, not to mention the vast numbers dying in the deserts. I find this to be a strange way of going about protecting Americans from the threat of terrorism. How does enraging millions of members of a nation that is a nuclear power make us safe?
It's interesting to contrast coverage of these events with the displaced at Hurricane Katrina. If I'm reading the numbers right it looks like fewer than 30,000 people were stranded, most of whom were housed at the Superdome. In response hundreds of millions of dollars were pledged in aid from around the world, from such nations as Cuba and Venezuala. Why so little outcry about this far greater catastrophe in Pakistan? If I didn't happen to have a friend from Pakistan I'd probably know nothing about it.
