Help Pakistan Flood Victims

I get why people are angry at Pakistan.  We are spending tons of money, lives and political clout to bringdemocracy to a part of the world that many there see the US as the enemy and who want to kill us. 

The floods have taken many lives and the aftermath threatens to take more from disease and hunger.  We should help those in need.  Many innocent people are dying.  We should not let politics prevent us from helping our fellow men, women and children. 

Others have said Pakistan is corrupt and any aid we send will just be diverted and not get to those who need it.  This is a cop-out.  Relief organizations know how to get around this. 

If for no other reason but to show the Pakistani people we care we need to help.  Please consider making a donation to the Pakistani relief effort.
