Pakistan's government reports that 10% of this nation of 180 million is now destitute and 20% of Pakistan's land is submerged by the filthy, contaminated floodwaters. Two more waves of monsoon flooding are on the way.

Washington, increasingly concerned by Pakistan's stability and loyalty, is rushing $1.5 billion in aid. Other nations have also promised some aid. The total promised so far is around $230 million. That's a drop in the bucket for Pakistan, one of the poorest places anywhere and the world' sixth most populous nation. By contrast, quake-ravaged Haiti got over $1 billion in aid. Israel gets over $3.2 billion annually from the US Congress. The US war in Afghanistan is costing at least $17 billion monthly.
