Ive only just found this site and this is the first thread ive read...
I cant believe some of the replies on here, suggesting in some way it was the fault of the 30000 + people.
Do the people who leave these replies truly understand the concept of poverty?
Going by the logic of some, No natural or man made disaster should ever result in other humans suffering.
One poster commented on why didnt they just walk North, on that note why didnt you along with others just drive South and help.
Examples of Disasters which could have been avoided by walking away.
1. 6 million Jews, Gypsies, Russians, Disabled etc should have just walked to Russia, France, UK,Spain. Result = No Holocaust
2. Ethiopians during the civil war should have just walked to Kenya, Uganda, Sudan = No Famine.
3. The marshlands Shia Iraqis under Saddam should have just walked into Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Jordan result = no mass execution.
4. Sumatra-Andaman had warnings, why didnt they just walk into Malaysia, Jakarta, Thailand. Result 275000 saved.
The list goes on....Pakistan, Columbia, Tangshan, Kobe...they should have all just walked away.
Why dont the 23 million of Southern California pack up and get out, the are fully aware of the earthquake risks?
To the poster who made comment about people looting T.Vs and other electrical equipment, do we really feel they need to be shot over a T.V. Breaking
the law maybe, but stealing a T.V. from an abanded shop surely doesnt warrent being murdered?
Why shouldnt we rely on the Government, Services/Forces, Coast Guard, Rescue, Local Government, whoever else could have helped.
Arent we there employers? Dont we pay them for a service?
Im sure there were people with ill intent, or people who got warning and could have left in time. But im sure they didnt think what happened was going
to happen. But what possible reason would anyone have, for believing anything that comes out of the likes of Bushes mouth. I dont even need to give
examples of why the opposite is true.
