    Islamic militants taking advantage. The line is now standard for any pak leader to use to blackmail the world into giving it money.

    i for one dont believe the news being fed by the pakistanis. they can exaggerate the extent of damage beyond limits, UN certainly does not have enough feet on ground and depends on information being trickled down to them by the pak officials who under the greed of minting money at this point in time could suggest the scale of damage to astronomical extents when on ground it would not be as bad. really very hard to trust a pak who is always known to have double crossed people.

    can someone share with us, yoy how many people in india suffer from floods and the economic loss associated.

    Well the difference is that india has resources and better disaster management.Even if politician/bureaucracy does corruption in aid in india there is guarantee that aid do reach needy.But in pakistan no portion of Aid reaches to people.Whatever be the the case No amount of aid can save pakistan.its economic woes will continue coz of it confrontational policies with india becoz of it its trade suffers.only trade can remove its economic woes rather than aid.

    Can Flood Aid Weaken the Taliban in Pakistan?

    Or is it more likely that extremist groups will capitalize on the chaos created by the disaster?

    AJ,

    that second para was to get a sense of what economic damage we suffer each year as a result of natural calamities, and how many people suffer as a result. we in india do not go around with a begging bowl like them and i am sure the scale of damage would be huge in india. each year river bhramaputra is flooded, ganges is flooded, there are flash floods up north and much more. please throw some light on it. thanks.

    IF pakistan don;t want us to release the waters then allow us to increase the height of the dams, but then if we increase the height of the Dams they will talk about India stealing water else they will talk about India releasing water. :angry_10:

    if you check last years krishna river flood or even the kosi floods in bihar the avg flood water flow was 4-5 times what is being reported now in pakistan.based on that you can say about the disaster management in india.What more is that if you look at present flood disaster in pakistan it feels like it was allowed to happen with waters carefully diverted to poor areas in KP and sindh and balochistan.It serves two purpose....
    1. It would reduce american pressure to go after haqqanis.
    2. it will pour in free money in form of aids and loans.

    If they were serious then govt of pak instead of sitting lazily would ve moved with in the first week of the floods itself.but for 2 and half weeks every dispensation in pakistan was acting as nothing happened.They had more time to make statement on cameroon's statement in india than taking care about the flood relief.It was same as Nero was playing flute while rome was burning.
