Three thousand killed in massive Asia quake

A powerful 7.6-magnitude earthquake near the Pakistan-India border Saturday reduced villages to rubble, triggered landslides and flattened an apartment building. More than 3,000 people were killed in both nations, and a Pakistan army spokesman called the devastation "a national tragedy."

Re: Three thousand killed in massive Asia quake

Very sad that so many people - including hundreds of school children have perished, but even more sad is the fact that by Monday it will be all Bush's and America's fault, and America will have been too slow with the money and aid that the rest of the world has demanded us to be responsible for, but still hate us for being the only superpower capable of doing so.

It's just the Earth's way of saying there are too many people.

Re: Three thousand killed in massive Asia quake

Take heed lest any man deceive you: 6 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. 7 And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet. 8 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be earthquakes in divers places, and there shall be famines and troubles: these are the beginnings of sorrowsa.
Mark 13:5-8 a sorrows: the word in the original means the pains of a woman in labor.




I came here to chew bubble gum and to kick some ass...and I'm all out of bubble gum.

Re: Three thousand killed in massive Asia quake

Terrible situation especially with the rainfall after the quake, creating a mucky environment for rescue efforts. This sounds like a similar situation with the last recent quake in Bam, Iran. Mud villages flattened and annihilated in landslides.
