I do not know what is worse than the prospect of as many people as 120,000 being dead from Cyclone Argus, which hit Myanmar (formerly Burma) and the Bay of Bengal, North of the Indian Ocean.
There is little news in Myanmar because of a criminal military junta that currently controls Myanmar. The Junta would rather see their people die than look like the paranoid, incompitants that they (military Rulers of Myanmar) are.
The Chinese earthquake was devestating and is rightfully reported about
I was telling my wife that the people in the earthquake devistated region do not remind me of growing up between 44th and 45th street in NW Washington D.C., but the people of central China cry the same way, they are torn apart when they see a relative excavated from the ground and they get crushed by concrete the same way I would.
This Earthquake, like Cyclone Nargus, does expose a weakness in the rulers of China and while they are still pulling folks from the rubble you will see no finger wagging from me.
We had Hurricane Katrina on our shores and our American President looked dazed and confused when he finally reacted to the natural devistation that is out there, in the meantime we almost lost an entire American City. New Orleans will never be the same after Katrina and Myanmar and China have seen nature; more to unfold in both places. Both places are going to get a tear from me.
I am still displaced from my Internet.
