    This thread is to show what will happen to a country if you elect incompetent leaders.

    @WannabValerie and @mangaii if you don’t want to see the reality of the current situation or if you are getting your news from other sources you can keep away from this thread.

    The incompetence is original and we are highlighting the incompetence by posting the news from different sources.

    This is like every typical argument that is happening in the internet.

    A: Israel has a right to defend against external attack.
    B: OMG You are saying Israel can kill Palestinian kids???

    --

    By their own admission, @Minion said this thread is about showing people what happens when an incompetent(by their own judgement) leader is elected. The 'i told you so' schadenfreude, sitting from the comfort of a probably developed country. It's not actually about the deaths, oxygen shortage or the infrastructure but scoring a point.

    Again, these are my views, other users can conclude whatever they want to.

    My original point was 'Every nation gets the government it deserves'. You are free to conclude anything about my political leanings otherwise based on your sound mind and reasoning.

    This is a thread which the OP has started and people can post here links or videos or even discuss in ways which they feel like. Not all have to be alike to reply in the way they post here.

    If one goes around many threads here in this forum there are such videos for music or songs in various genre where the members share videos or movies they like and other interesting shares. They are just repositories here in many threads in which they just share only YouTube videos links. No one has come out to advise them as to why they are sharing music YouTube videos or whatever which are also basically cut and paste. Anyone can go to YouTube to watch it. But in this forum we can use it as a repository to watch it. That’s all and people like to post there. No one ever bothers about asking same there because it is not horrifying but the reality is they are also just media and reel life.

    Here in this thread they share videos which are horrific and real life and if we don’t like to watch them we don’t have to watch them. But it doesn’t take away the fact that they aren’t the truth. I haven’t watched many of the videos here but I have watched some. If we don’t want to watch let us not. But let us also not jump into conclusions that the people who tell or share are of vicious nature and have hideous intentions. They are also people with humanity and trying in their own way to let world know about what is happening. Trying to accept this reality to sink in.

    This is a forum of many threads in many fields and I don’t even read many of them. I don’t have the right to say which one should be here or not. If I am not interested I don’t read them but I don’t go around asking about why such a thread etc

    My question here is that people have started vilifying the posters of this thread just because it shows the tragedy of mammoth proportions. It’s neither the posters fault that it happened or the media’s fault that they are horrific to watch. So why do we have to blame the media or posters here who have shared them. Do we have to blame the members here as having ulterior motive or being sadistic? It’s utterly inhumane to tell such a thing.

    I am of the belief that members here are really humane enough with lots of empathy and showing their grief in different ways inspite of having differences of opinion which includes you all as well because everyone doesn’t want to watch the videos as they are sickening to even believe.

    But the reality is just because I close my eyes or ears and don’t come here or go to TV and watch news or other platforms these horrible incidents will vanish. If indeed it happens I can definitely switch everything off and live peacefully.

    Please instead of bashing others if no one wants to watch please avoid this thread or news. But don’t post as if we all are enjoying or do name calling like this ( schadenfreude?!).

    If anyone don’t like this thread you can complain to the administration and they can close the thread. That’s what is the right thing to do and let them close the thread.

    Above is my reply. As I said above just complain to administrators and they will look into your grievances about this thread.

    This a video by an YouTube news channel where they talk exactly what some are asking- about positive or inspiring news! Yes, another copy and paste.

    Wrong. This is not ‘every typical argument on internet’.

    I’m offended by your repeated insinuations of schadenfraude and insulted by it.

    Do you have any idea about how absolutely distraught and besides themselves the global diaspora has been ever since news broke about this ongoing disaster in early April? Clearly not.

    Everyone I know has been busy collecting donations, mobilizing, organizing relief supplies and petitioning and pressuring the Biden administration to do more. Everyone. NGOs, religious orgs, every org with contacts on the ground in India and a good India network has sprung into action. Do you have any idea about the kind of pressure that was brought to bear on the US Govt? Biden’s hands were tied because Trump wrote the original vaccine, raw supplies and PPE contracts in such a way that the companies would be in dire breach of contract if they supplied anyone other than US. (America First! A sentiment you seem to agree with in the Indian context since you are defending similar actions by GOI.) Not only that, Trump tried to extend those contracts validity as far out after his regime ended as possible upto 100 days over which is roughly May 1. But we were able to push Congress and the admin to send before that. The pressure was so overwhelming that within a week they were forced to hold emergency meetings through the weekend of April 17-18 and took the decisions. The first relief plane was loaded and landed in India before April 26. How do you think that turnabout happened within the space of one weekend? None of this effort was publicized or trumpeted either because the focus is on saving lives not taking credit as you seem to believe.

    Unlike what you seem to think, NO ONE is sitting back and laughing or taking pleasure in this!

    But it’s not just you. There is a whole section of Indian populace who seems to believe similarly unfortunately. Just the other day I saw a viral video by that moronic actress in my India WhatsApp group. The relief being sent is a plot to enslave India, it seems or some such garbage. I didn’t even finish watching and just deleted it. It astounds me that a seemingly pretty face can spout such unadulterated nonsense. And sure enough the sheep in that group obediently and predictably baa’ed in agreement. Thankfully the next day Twitter did the honors and shut her up for good.

    I disagree only with this part of your post. Please don’t ask Mods to close this thread. Minion has posted many useful videos not just slice of life but some good analysis ones as well. It’s a good mix and well curated in my opinion. (I don’t know about the regional Lang ones as I don’t know that language)
