Pakistan Flood Disaster

When you look at the devastation caused by the floods in Pakistan on the news it is difficult to comprehend the misery the people of Pakistan are in.
It is being said that the uptake from ordinary people as a result of numerous appeals is very slow and there is a great deal of speculation in the press as to why this is the case. Of course, I have no real idea why this is so. However, there is a little niggle way back in my mind which I find difficult to reconcile . . . Pakistan is a nuclear weapon state with the burden of cost that entails, yet it still does not have the resources, money or logistics wise, to help their people out of this disaster.
Is that not weird . . or is it just me !
