Right Intention: Cruelty of Man vs Cruelty of Nature

Cruelty of Man vs Cruelty of Nature

Clifford May asks the same question I asked a few days ago:

The world's greatest scientists don't know how to prevent natural disasters - tsunamis, earthquakes, volcanoes and hurricanes. Any fool knows how to stop unnatural disasters such as the mass murders of ethnic minorities by brutal dictators. We just don't seem to believe that both sets of victims are equally deserving of our intervention.

Again, I don't understand. Genocide has occurred frequently over the last 20 years and pretty much no one cares. You can't even get the MSM to show an Iraqi mass grave, or talk about the Kurds, Rwanda, etc. But they can't get enough of this tsunami. Why is there a great deal of interest in dealing with the cruelty of nature but little to none for dealing with the cruelty of man?
