Winter Is the Enemy

As I noted recently, the post-earthquake situation in Pakistan is pretty dire, particularly, as this NY Times report attests, with winter approaching quickly and aid workers facing a massive refugee problem.

Perhaps if Americans had paused to consider this dynamic the last time there was a major refugee crisis in the mountainous regions of Central Asia, they would have a better appreciation for it.

But no time for cheap political shots. International help is desperately needed. Pitch in if you haven't already.
