    Avalanche Buries 100 Pakistani Soldiers

    I won't rule out global warming as the cause.

    (ISLAMABAD) — An avalanche smashed into a Pakistani army base on a Himalayan glacier along the Indian border on Saturday, burying around 100 soldiers, the military said.
    Helicopters, sniffer dogs and troops were deployed to the remote Siachen Glacier to rescue those trapped, according to a military statement.
    The avalanche hit a battalion headquarters in the glacier's Gayari sector at 5:45 a.m, according to a security official who didn't give his name because he is not an official spokesman.
    Siachen is on the northern tip of the divided Kashmir region claimed by both India and Pakistan.

    Must be Obama's fault. Literally everything is Obama's fault. Like, it's cloudy out today. Obama and Pelosi did it.

    It's apparently 130, seventy feet deep. It's the biggest avalanche seen in the area. It's so extreme up there, they ordinarily lose more troops to the weather than to "enemy" action. The BBC website still says 100 but their News24 channel has the updated numbers.
