Posted on 05/05/2014 6:09:32 AM PDT by TangledUpInBlue
White tents line the sides of the valley where the landslide struck. Some villagers weep, others pray.
The remnants of their shattered community lies buried below, submerged under as much as 60 meters of mud.
In the space of one devastating week, natural disasters killed more people in Afghanistan than they did all last year.
At the heart of the destruction was the double landslide that engulfed a village in a remote northeastern province on Friday, killing more than 2,000 people.

Vengeance is mine sayeth the Lord. Good for him. Good for them.
I think that the Christian is called to pray for their souls but also as a Christian, I believe that death is not the ultimate evil.
Awww my “Give a CRAP meter” is BROKEN
Thanks USN Vet. And thanks for your service.
I see enemies.
So did I. You read my mind.
Muzzles are the first to celebrate when something bad happens to Americans. I am just too exhausted from their hatred to try to feel anything for them.
It is the Will of Allah.
Perhaps, there are one or two Afghan women/girls under the landslide who consider themselves ‘delivered’.
As a Christian and a woman, I am still ashamed to say that.
Oh, well. I guess this is a few thousand head-choppers who can no longer chop heads.
I’m trying to decide if that’s really a great tragedy.
Ask me if I give a smelly Obama.
If this town is the NE area that is supportive of the Taliban and Pakistan then I have no sympathy for the them. OTOH, if they keep to themselves and are just surviving then I feel for them.
That is EXACTLY what most Muslims would say.
This has been happening to the Afghanis for as long as there have been Afghanis in that dry, desolate hole in the mountains. What a desperate life they must lead.
I see souls that need to be saved. Unfortunately, they would slaughter and eat any missionaries sent.
Again, G-d is not mocked.
Well, I have pity for them.
There are women and children and elderly men among the 2000 dead. There are probably Taliban, too, and I’m not as sorry about their loss, but it would have been good for them to have more of a chance to change the evil in their souls before the landslide hit them, but they are grown-ups and in God’s hands.
And those of us who despise the Taliban should be praying for them, like Jesus said about praying for your enemies. Don’t let their inhuman behavior dehumanize you.
All those islamists....
It is a tragedy and I celebrated by buying 6 boxes of 5.56 - 75gr HPBT. Just for, you know, unexpected guests.
