I feel for Australia's loss.Those arsonists are mass muderers.Im sure any survivors will feel Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome for the rest of thier lives.

Yeah, this is a really, really bad disaster. Lots of people caught out, thinking they could stay and fight the flames, and being overcome - and many more being killed by trying to drive through the flames and crashing in the fire and smoke. <br />
One pic really got me - someone tried to get away in their car, and a big burning tree fell on it, crushing it. <br />
<br />
The one that actually brought tears to my eyes was a pic of a little bloke about 5, sitting in a car, looking back over his left shoulder. He was covered in soot, and his face showed fear, loss, confusion, despair .... all the emotions of total trauma. This experience will have scarred him for life. <br />

The worst part is the arsonists who are lighting fires, as soon as they are extinguished. When they catch these people, they should throw them into the hottest part of the fires still burning.

My heart goes out to all there and especially to the families who have lost someone...
