    Default Are Concern for real?

    So there has being a flood or something in Pakistan and Concern are appealing for aid for it. Thats fair enough but heres the part i dont get.

    What do Pakistan spend on nuclear power and weapons each year? I have no idea but im willing to bet its a lot more than is needed to sort this one out.

    Some charities are completely out of touch with what countries are able to help themselves and what countries can help themselves but dont bother.

    amazing,
    Westside.

    Some countries can help themselves and dont you are correct but its the people they neglect. They build up their arsenal of weapons and the people get very little or anything at all, that is why such charities work in these countries

    "If India builds the bomb, we will eat grass and leaves for a thousand years, even go hungry, but we will get one of our own. The Christians have the bomb, the Jews have the bomb and now the Hindus have the bomb. Why not the Muslims too have the bomb?"

    Aid agencies don't just choose to go to countries that can't help their people in time of need, they also go into countries who don't help their people in times of need............

    They're not political and don't view it that way.......

    Politics has nothing to do with humanitarian aid. I doubt that the thousands of people stranded alongside the ravaged puddle that is now their home could tell you anything at all about the latest government manifesto. Watching their children die of cholera and starvation may dim their interest in the order of the day. Not to worry though, its their problem, eh?

    Exactly my point. Was listening to some gobshite on the radio the other night saying we should give them nothing and look after ourselves because we are in recession, yet he felt sorry for them??

    Didn't leave his name or say where he was from did he???

    Perhaps he found another way to show his lack of understanding of the subject............
