Aid battle for flood-hit Pakistan

Praise Allah.

Rescuers in Pakistan are struggling to bring aid to more than a million people hit by storms that have also struck many other areas in south Asia.

This seems to remind me of something, I think it was when Katrina hit New Orleans and the people in the middle east celebrated it as the finger of God punishing the US. So, I guess his finger slipped this time then huh?

Army helicopters and transport planes are dropping aid to the homeless in Pakistan's Balochistan province.

Balochistan province is a hotbed for Islamic insurgency. I think you can see where I'm going with this.

Relief officials in Balochistan said the situation was being brought under control after police on Friday fired tear gas on hundreds of angry protesters demanding help in the city of Turbat.

So now you're wet AND blind. We here in the US criticized the reaction of our government with Katrina but at least they didn't fire tear gas.
