    Why do you suppose that we have not been discussing this story, while on the other hand, we discussed Haiti in depth?

    We're not getting enough media to tell us or show us how poor and pitiful they are and famous musicians don't have ties there as the Beatles and Bangladesh.

    I didn't care about the hatians, and i sure as hell dont care about the pakistanies.

    If we spend money on flooding victims how about we use the money on our own flooding victims.

    I don't think that's the reason.

    My theory is that the destruction in Pakistan is less obvious and far more spread out. Essentially, the place just looks like a big lake.

    Unlike Haiti, where the destruction was in a relatively smaller area and was much more obvious in seeing completely destroyed buildings with massive amounts of rubble.

    That's my theory too. I made a thread about it a couple days ago, no response. The other thing is certain people on here could and did turn Haiti into a political issue, not so much room to do so here.
