I have to say, this approach to this topic is really a sad reflection on how you view the world.
I don't pray, but I did watch with baited breath every day while it unfolded, and I'm still concerned for those boys in the hospital. I felt pain for
their parents while they had to helplessly wait to see if their child would emerge from the cave alive or dead. I felt pain for the family of Saman
Gunan as he died in attempts to keep those boys alive.
But at the same time, I'm also capable to be sympathetic and empathetic in my own community and country, I'm capable of donating to multiple causes at
the same time, and I'm capable of donating my own time and efforts to things while being concerned about things on a national scale.
So, I fail to see the irony of such a situation, but I will absolutely note that there's no exclusivity in any actions or problems that you
mention--we can focus on more than one crisis at a time.
Also, your assertion that if these same boys were in cages in America, that people wouldn't be concerned on their behalf, is about as silly as you can
be. But, sure, why not--keep being divisive for no good reason. That's a tactic working well in America these days.
ETA: If risk assessment was your point, you didn't deliver it very well.
