    BBC News - Pakistani flood victims' anger at US

    As the fury of floods continue to take heavy toll of Pakistani territory, the waters continue to spread misery wherever they go. With the search and rescue operation by Armed forces in full swing, there still seems to be no stopping of social violence in the country. Complains a Pakistani victim, "Despite the heavy damage of floods, shootings and bomb blasts still continue".

    Flood victims now require more than just sugar, flour and other rations; they want everything that they have lost, be it in property or personal belongings and basic infrastructure access that they lost. With in-fighting in camps still continuing, there still continues to be a large-scale anti-America sentiment among Pakistani victims especially from the northwest Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region despite the fact that United States has been till now the single largest donor of aid.

    Pointing at a BBC correspondent, a Pakistani shouts, "What about your country? Why aren't you giving more?" "We're doing so much to help the United States in the war on terrorism. Now we're in crisis and we expect help," said one of the businessman donors. :special20:

    Some criticised the government, saying the aid was not fairly distributed. Others blamed the West, including the US, for failing to give enough help.:special21:

    There are basically few reasons behind this

    1. The extended Anti American sentiment given by media all these years about CIA,Backwater conspiracy

    2. The propaganda by govt. and media saying they where carrying out this operation for the Americans and not to defend themselves(Ironic).

    3. These are desperate people, when you start becoming hungry and thirsty its only natural for a human being to be aggressive and make illogical statements.That particular statement looked like desperation for food and water. Its very very hard to feed everyone as reports say at least 7-million are in need of food and medical aid...

    You believe what you wish to believe. Media can only make you believe as much. Anti-America, anti-jew, anti-west, anti-hindu and anti-India sentiments are indoctrinated since childhood. Don't be expecting mangoes when you sow acacia.

    Again their media tells them no different from what they wish to believe.

    Load of bollocks. The views were no different even when the floods were not there. When the west and infidels are blamed for all that's wrong with Pakistan, is it really a surprise. I don't see them cursing Saudis or Chinese in desperation. Surely, they would not be unaware that their all weather friends have come up with nought.

    Pakistan should be renamed Paradoxistan as it is full of paradoxes. They beg the West for aid yet they curse them behind their backs. They consider Chinese and Saudis their true friends even their aid in times of crises like these is peanuts compared to what the West or even India gives. They wage war against the Taliban and Islamic militants even though they are responsible for their creation.

    I think there is no doubt that Paradoxistan deserves its hard-earned rank of ninth most failed state.

    When you get hungry for 3-4 days and don;t get food then you understand how much it can influence you.That statement was motivated by hunger and nothing else, and as for the media, you can't blame the people coz propaganda is all they are taught from school and heard in media..

    Using the same logic you cannot blame those 26/11 terrorists, becoz they were brainwashed & made to hate our country. What I mean to say is we don't have care about the reasons for their hate towards India its the end result that matters.

    I was talking about hunger... killing people is bad, no matter how much propaganda is taught .. the thought of killing 180+ people can only come from Emotionless and Empathy less fools.. You people are just repeating what am saying in a different manner ...lol

    Its the USA which bought untold miseries on Pakistanis by pandering to its ruling military /politico/feudal elites.where elites takes millions on loans and get it written off.Ultimately its the people who've to pay for it.Even in these flood crisis where approximately $5 billions has been pledged in aid and loans,i doubt even $100 million will reach to the needy people.every single dollar will be siphoned of by these guys.And in root of all these is USA who always supports Pakistani military /feudal elites to keep its people down.So the ordinary Pakistanis' anger is genuine on america and consequence of which USA is seeing in terms of Islamic militancy.USA has been paying these military/feudal elites to kill ordinary Pakistanis for the past 6 decades.Who can forget the millions killed in bhola cyclone in east Pakistan and then other 3 millions killed by Pakistani army and both the time USA kept quite supporting Pakistani generals.who can forget the devastation USA bought in Pakistan in the form of jehadi movement to counter USSR in Afghanistan.If Pakistan is the result of jehadism then USA is the root of that jehadism.

    The US and the crackpot generals that they sponsor are certainly a major reason why Pakistan is currently a failed state, but the Pakistani people are also to blame. They believed in the Islamist propaganda that they were fed since childhood and failed to rise up to save their democracy. Now they are suffering the results of their inaction.
