    The scale of death in this tragedy is beyond comprehension. It's horrible, absolutely horrible. Those poor people.

    Anyone see this yesterday? Awful stuff in a country where a lot of people probably think it can't get any worse.



    "More than 2,100 people from 300 families are all dead," Naweed Forotan, a spokesman for the Badakhshan provincial governor, told Reuters.

    Villagers and a few dozen police, equipped with only basic digging tools, resumed their search when daylight broke but it soon became clear there was no hope of finding survivors buried in up to 100 meters of mud."



    Hopefully the UN and Nato forces in the region will be able to help with the survivors and the re-building process.


    Yikes. Makes one feel a bit petty for feeling ill-used over a hard week at work, eh?

    Have you not heard... the "middle east" is now wherever Muslims are that we hate... instead of a geographical area.

    So, now we're reducing ourselves to quibbling over the geographic definition of exactly where the "Middle East" is.

    Nothing else to criticize, apparently, so let's jump on some insignificant aspect that doesn't really matter one way or another to the points of the thread and the posts in said thread.
    If you claim sexual harassment to be wrong, yet you defend anyone on your side for any reason,
    then you are a hypocrite and everything you say on the matter is just babble.
