Heavy rains, floods kill 233, affect 5.5 million in Pakistan

Heavy rains and flooding have killed at least 233 people in Pakistan, a disaster agency spokesman said Wednesday, as a weather forecast calls for more rain over deluged parts of the country.

Seven people have died in the past 24 hours, said Irshad Bhatti, a spokesman for the National Disaster Management Authority.

At least 5.5 million people have been affected by the flooding since August, said Zafar Iqbal Qadir, chairman of the disaster authority.

      I see that this Tea Partying nitwit keeps on trolling me as he did in the post above. Has anyone ever noticed that these ignorant Tea Partiers never post anything intelligent anywhere, just a lot of posting under other peoples' names without saying anything worthwhile and occasionally using profanity?

    Please, please, please go to a country, any other country, if you think the US is evil. The only thing truly evil that I see spewing his vitriolic hate here every day is you.

      How right you are, Jj. The right-wing thugs in Washington including Barack Obama can't do anything to help fix our sagging economy but yet have millions, if not billions to pour into all these foreign countries! This is totally disgusting!!!

      It's too bad that these ignorant Tea Partiers here don't buy what you posted above. They love to use profanity on anybody who doesn't agree with them or dislikes all these obnoxious wars that we're now engaged in. You might as add that there is absolutely no glory in killing, only heartache! That teas them off quicker than anything else!!!
