I agree with you here.

77 million people poisoned, 5 flags but only one response. I thought this is a huge deal. Is there government going to do anything about this?

Seems they need to act on this, maybe the UN can help isn't that what there there for???

I wish these news sites would stop broadcasting things like this to tell you the truth..... it's like saying 'HELLO TERRORISTS.... THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED TO DO' to the World!!!

Do you know what though? It's pretty disgusting over there and so i'm not surprised and why have their Leaders not bothered to look after their own people? You have to ask yourself the question!!
