NEGATIVE THOUGHTS TO you but not to me… 😉 From the Tsunami which wiped out a quarter of a million lives on December 26, 2004. Now fast forward to January 12, 2010 another 200,000 lives and counting are biting the dust. Sounds bluntly insensitive, I know… 😦
My deep thoughts and prayers are for those who have passed on tragically and my sincere condolences and sympathies to all who have to endure the sorrows and pains of their hurting and losses caused by the devastating earthquake in Haiti.
I envy all those mega superstars from Hollywood who are blessed with excessive wealth, fortune and fame to contribute generously for a good cause. I could only wish that my wealthy country through the wisdom of the sovereign Monarchy will eventually donate multi-million dollar cash pledges to the quake-stricken Haitians ASAP! I shall donate every little bit of penny I may have left in my pocket, God Willing (Insya Allah).
The irony of all these tragedies is that we haven’t really learnt our lessons, have we? The massive tsunami taught us humility but arrogance still abound in this temporary world raging with hatred! And this latest ‘punishment’ from the Almighty should teach us about ‘divine intervention’ as a necessary ‘evil’ but survival of the heartless still rules! 😦 Chaotic anarchy seems to be the order of the day on the Carribean island of its already poverty-stricken 9 million inhabitants!
Yet the so-called arrogant ‘super-powers’ still want to go ahead with crazy and stupid wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, wherever. Yeah, right! Touche and kudos to the US of A for being the very first and leading government to rush emergency aid to its affected neighbour in the Americas! “Be good to thy neighbour” is a common tenet in Christianity and any religious faith — Islam notwithstanding. But the thing is enough of ‘PLASTICISM’ already, President Barack Obama! Why not simply CALL OFF whatever evil intention to ‘finish off’ Afghanistan and send the planned surge in American troops to Haiti instead?!
To think that the United Nations have called for half a billion of dollars which needs to be expedited to the aid of Haiti in coping with the catastrophic disaster, why can’t the UN ‘ORDER‘ the United States to abort its multi-billion dollar plan to ‘kill and maim’ the Taliban and Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan and redirect all those billions into re-building the world’s poorest nation destroyed by natural calamity back to life again?! Why the half-hearted response to this tragic devastation of Haiti?! You wanna go all-out to help? Then go all the way, America and divert the multi-billion dollar budget toward helping your poorest neighbour! 😉
OH MY GOD! LOOK AT THE FAMISHED AND HELPLESS HAITIANS’ FACES, FOR ONCE, US OF A… WHY WASTE MONEY IN NEVER-ENDING WAR IN AFGHANISTAN, MR PRESIDENT?! HAVE A HEART AND HELP HAITI WHOLE-HEARTEDLY. DUMP AFGHANISTAN WAR PLANS AND PUT THE AMERICAN TAX-PAYERS’ MONEY TO MUCH BETTER USE IN HAITI! AIN’T TOO MUCH TO ASK, IS IT? 🙂
