What is happening in Pakistan is not only terrible on a human level, it is also terrible from a structural standpoint, globally. US troops have just been sent for help but this is far from enough and the cost of the recovery has been estimated in billions. In comparison, the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico has got a much higher support, and same goes to Haiti. The day the world becomes one nation, we will really all be equal and every world region will benefit from the same infrastructure. I do not just believe that it will be better, I think it is only a matter of time before people realise that a global system with a more structured approach to global aid, peace and environment preservation is the key to our prosperity as a planet.
