Collapse of Pakistan May Have Started

As the First Phase of Pakistan’s Collapse Begins, the Prospect of Civil War Looms

The worst ever floods in Pakistan have severely impacted at least 3 million people: UNICEF

The flooding catastrophe has claimed the lives of up to 3,000 people in less than a week, and the damage will likely worsen dramatically as more heavy monsoon rains are forecast.

Tens of thousands of homes, businesses and people’s livelihood have been washed away as entire villages are submerged by floodwater.

There’re severe shortages of drinking water, food, shelter, medicine and sanitary material. It’s only a matter of time before water-borne diseases such as cholera could create epidemics.

“Most roads linking flood-hit areas have been blocked and 91 bridges have been either washed away or damaged, so access to affected areas is still a challenge.” Adnan Khan, spokesman for the Crisis Management Authority in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa was quoted as saying.

“The main problem there is outbreak of diseases, especially in Nowshera district where hundreds of dead animals are lying on the ground and there is a shortage of machinery to remove them.”

“Since the flood hit our area, I did not see any food or relief packets from the government. Their offices have been washed away or damaged,” said a local school teacher in Swat Valley.
