India is Not Burma

How come India isn't getting hammered in the papers like Burma, readers?

Because India is an ally and Burma is not?

Nooooooo, the agenda-pushing, Zionist-controlled, biased AmeriKan MSM would NEVER do that!!!!

"Villagers in India desperate as flooding spreads; At least 2 million displaced; 20 die as boat overturns" by Sunil Kataria, Reuters | August 30, 2008

PATRAGHAT, India - Villagers were eating uncooked rice and flour mixed with polluted water, disaster relief officials said yesterday as rising river waters smashed embankments and flooded more areas in the northeast Indian state of Bihar.

More than 2 million people have been displaced and about a quarter of a million houses have been destroyed in Bihar after the country's worst flooding in 50 years, officials said.

In Bihar, thousands of people, carrying all their belongings on their heads, walked away from their flooded homes through narrow and submerged roads. Many children rode on their cows and buffalos.

"We've lost our homes, we've lost our clothes, we've lost everything" said a villager walking along a road with his child. "We are taking our children and leaving and we don't even know where we are going."

Water levels continued to rise amid heavy rains. The water could stay for around three months, increasing the risk of water-borne diseases. Some specialists have blamed the floods on heavier monsoon rains caused by global warming, while others say that authorities have failed to take preventive measures and improve infrastructure.

That's the same exact paragraph as yesterday .

So the AmeriKan MSM is just a patch-and-paste propaganda outfit, huh?

Just repeat and reprint lies until they are accepted as truth?

"My hungry children are crying and we are eating raw rice without boiling it," said Amit Kumar from Supaul district, the worst hit by floods this year.

Some are eating corn flour mixed with water to survive.

"I know how villagers are somehow managing to keep themselves alive by eating whatever food is available to them," said Nitish Mishra, the state disaster management minister. "It is not easy to distribute food to over two million displaced villagers, I know their condition."

Officials said bad weather and strong currents were preventing them from providing aid to remote areas.


I'm waiting for the excoriating editorials fom the Boston Globe on India's negligence towards their people -- you know, like on Burma.

I'm waiting, Globe.
