Sri Lanka Hit by a Deadly Double Whammy

Posted by feww on May 28, 2017

Sri Lanka’s deadly floods exacerbate dengue crisis, warns Save the Children – more rainfall forecast

Hundreds killed or missing, and about 500,000 are displaced in the flooding and mudslides triggered by incessant rains, authorities said.

Meanwhile, a surge of dengue fever cases have been reported by NGOs with 53,000 dengue fever cases recorded across the country since January.

“The humanitarian situation in Sri Lanka right now is alarming. The impact of these early monsoon season downpours has been far more devastating than what we’d normally expect this time of year,” said Save the Children Country Director in Sri Lanka.

“We’re particularly worried we could start seeing a further increase in the number of dengue cases because of the stagnant water that the floods will leave in their wake, which is the last thing needed by families and communities that have already lost so much.”

Background:

“US Budgetary Costs of [Lucrative Wars] through 2016: $4.79 Trillion and Counting – Summary of Costs of the US Wars in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan and Pakistan and Homeland Security

  • “As of August 2016, the US has already appropriated, spent, or taken on obligations to spend more than $3.6 trillion in current dollars on the wars in Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan and Syria and on Homeland Security (2001 through fiscal year 2016). To this total should be added the approximately $65 billion in dedicated war spending the Department of Defense and State Department have requested for the next fiscal year, 2017, along with an additional nearly $32 billion requested for the Department of Homeland Security in 2017, and estimated spending on veterans in future years. When those are included, the total US budgetary cost of the wars reaches $4.79 trillion.” [That’s about $15,000 for every man, woman, child, and illegal immigrant in the country.]

31.1 million people displaced within their own country in 2016 – IDMC

Posted by feww on May 23, 2017

Conflict, violence and disasters forced one person to flee every second 

Conflict, violence and disasters caused 31.1 million new internal displacements in 2016, according to a new report released  by the Internal Displacement Monitoring Center (IDMC) and the Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC).

“In 2016, one person every second was forced to flee their home inside their own country. Internally displaced people now outnumber refugees by two to one. It is urgent to put internal displacement back on the global agenda,” said Jan Egeland, Secretary General of the NRC.

Of the 6.9 million new internal displacements caused by conflict in 2016, 2.6 million took place in Sub-Saharan Africa, according to the Global Report on Internal Displacement.

Disasters displaced 24 million new victims in 2016, linked to sudden-onset weather hazards such as floods, storms, wildfires and severe winter conditions.

Terrorists Strike Manchester, UK

Posted by feww on May 23, 2017

Only a handful of terrorist organizations/ governments sick enough to target children

22 killed, 59 wounded in Manchester suicide bombing

At least 22 people, including children, have been killed and 59 others wounded in a suicide attack at Manchester Arena.

A “lone male attacker” detonated a “homemade bomb” in the foyer at 22:35 BST on Monday at the end of a performance by US singer Ariana Grande.

If this sickening act proves to be the work of Wahhabi terrorists, and it most probably was, it would also be a stab in the back for the so-called US presi-dent by the Saudi royal family.
