#1 Never put a FOB on a glacier.

#2 "I can't comprehend how an avalanche can reach that place," said the officer, who didn't give his name because he is not authorized to speak to the media. "It was supposed to be safe."

how could an avalanche EVER happen on a glacier in the mountains? Idiot

#6 Mean Olde Mr. Gravity trumps Allen every time, especially when you don't learn and respect his laws.

#10 So who do they blame for this? Hindoos? Djinns? The Foreign Hand? Joooos?

#11 I think Joooos are pretty much the fall-back scapegoat for moslems, tu, though Hindoooos are probably a close second in that area.

Personally, I blame Allen, who was obviously displeased with his people dispoiling his glacier.

#12 Besoeker----Great article. I remember seeing quite a spread in Nat Geo Mag about the war in that disputed territory.

It is amazing to see this military stalemate and the absolutely horrendous filth and pollution that has accumulated. For nothing.

The best solution would be to joint venture the whole thing, but the Paks would never do that. A real shame. I for one have always wanted to go there since I was a kid, but I do not think that is going to happen.

#14 All the territory Pakistan has taken from India in Kashmir, both that they kept and that they gave to China, is what keeps India from having a land border with Afghanistan, and keeps the billions pouring in from the US so that we can supply ourselves fighting Pakistan in Afghanistan.

#15 Up to 124 buried - the Pakis have many 00's more + sniffer dogs looking at or near the same spot.
