    WE aren't confronted with that everyday in our cushy little western bubble.
    Most people in the developing world aren't confronted by those scenes on a daily basis. Go to Brazil, Iran, Kenya .etc. and it isn't as bad as those pictures. Those are some of the worst pictures of a century, there are bound to be horrible pictures.

    Go to Somalia, Darfur, Iraq, Afghanistan, Sierra Leone and see that life really is that bad for a lot of people.

    They are some extreme countries you have picked, the people posting in this thread seem to be under the illusion this is normal life outside the west. Bear in mind some of the pictures posted by the OP were taken in the West and many were of conflicts initiated by the United States, war=horrible pictures.

    I didn't mean to suggest that every person in a non western country lives a horrible life, and I know western governments/corporations are actually responsible for a lot of the suffering. It just seemed to me that you were suggesting the images were of rare isolated events, and that really isn't the case.

    The war photos are representative of war in general, which is certainly not an isolated event. Even those particular wars involve/d people suffering and dying on a massive scale. Famines periodically happen across different parts of Africa on a regular basis, and that is only going to get worse with climate change. Fair shout on the other two though.

    i love animals, i have pets that i love and care about so to see an animal being mistreated is upsetting to me because i know how much i love mine and i cant understand how anyone would hurt/neglect an innocent animal

    i dont have kids, have no intention of having kids and i cant stand kids

    Kids are just young people though. Do you really dislike other people so much that you are totally unmoved by an image of someone dying a slow and painful death.

    You sound lovely.

    Also humans are animals and a child is as innocent as a fluffy little mouse killing machine like a Kitten.

    A child is an innocent animal, or did you fail to realise that? But yea, you're just a troll tbh.

    You're a disgusting person. A child starving to death is something which is far more concerning than an abandoned kitten.
