    Horrible tragedy...I assume that the US will be among those on the forefront in offering help and assistance. However, this hit at a bad time as many people (in N. America and Europe )have already given all they could afford to give to hurricane relief and therefore won't be able to give to help rebuild the areas of Pakistan and India affected by this tragedy...I assume that the US, UN, EU and nations of Asia will provide substantial aid/support, however.

      Horrible news.....and this happened in the month of Ramadan also, just sad..The rescue teams are working very hard in the cities, but they can't even get to the more remote areas since the roads are completly blocked.

      BTW Paul...Its Pakistan, not Pasktin..

        It is a minor trajedy...Pakistan won't be needing any help...the country can easily handle the situation. It was much worse earlier this year with all the freak flooding in Baluchistan and the Pakistan army handled it adequately.

        But at the end, may God help those suffering.

          So 18,000 people being killed is a "minor" tragedy??

            WOW AIC1985 i say you shutup. Its not a minor tragedy. I lost many close relatives, and Its been less then a month since I came back from pakistan. Where a few of my relatives lived, was the center of the earthquake in the northwest frontier section of pakistan. Losing 18,000+ people is not MINOR! that number will definately go up. And i think pakistan needs all the help they can. If you watch CNN, you see the poor pakistanis digging out by hand, no machinery is available.

            Personally I havent been in contact with many of relatives, because phone lines are dead. However, I know that a few have died, and have already been buried.
            Only the dead have seen the end of the war-Plato

              This is very tragic, hearing 18000 humans dead is quite alot, buried under gravel.. or not !

              Fly, let it rest,, he's only a kid, he doesnt know what he's talking about. Losing contact with relatives is the worst that can happen, Not knowing if they are okey and all that . I hope you get to hear from your family soon as possible !

                cool down people, at the time of my comment, less than 2000 were reported killed...didn't know that it ballooned to 18000.

                So, technically, at that time, I was right, if the number stood less than 2000, than I guess it would have been small tragedy for a nation of 160 million + but now this changes the equation.

                Sorry if I offended anybody. And besides, I was only commenting on Pakistan's capabilities.

                    Yaar, yes, I am a Pakistani who has never lived in Pakistan.

                    But I hope you understand what I meant, the article I read stated over a 1000 dead mostly in Northern Pakistan...didn't know about the 18000+ and you must remember, the only reason you are being so hot headed is because your cousins were involved...I understand your situation. Please calm down, read Quran, don't fast tomorrow (it is stressful time for you), and remember, I am here to support you and to pray for you and your relatives.

                    Inshallah, you will hear good news from on going recovery.
                    You only have one life...

                      As an atheist I was respectively wondering how itís possible for them not to be angry with their god, specially considering this earthquake happened during Ramadan?

                          If you ask a Christian the same question, they would most likely say it's a test from God to see if you'll remain faithful during hard times as well as the way you treat other people in need.

                            Humour is the best medicine during hard times.
