The pictures in this story are very difficult to look at but give Americans another reason why we shouldn't be living in the cities any more with economic collapse possible at almost any time and hundreds of millions unprepared. Should any devastating emergency happen, big cities instantly become death traps and while we may not see a stampeding horde of 2 million people, the sheer volume of suddenly hungry people unable to obtain their next meal or unable to use proper hygenic facilities such as the toilet once power shuts down sewage systems tells us why we should choose to live away from 'the masses'.
While hoping to be considered a 'religion of peace', with the emergence of ISIS on a worldwide scale spreading terror and ever more incidents of Islamic terrorism and beheadings of Christians around the world, is this 'massacre in Mecca' another sign from above?
The Haj is an annual Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca that is attended by more than 2 million people that dates back to at least the 7th century. Anyone here want to be in a stampede with 2 million of your closest friends? These images show us one reason why we try to avoid big crowds and cities and why they could all instantly turn into death traps should disaster of almost any major kind strike.
