The Anguished Cries of China Quake Nurse
Posted by feww on May 18, 2008
Why was the quake nurse reduced to tears and had to beg the soldiers to rescue children?
If rescuing the children wasn’t their priority, and clearly it wasn’t, what were the soldiers ordered to do?
Anguished Chinese Nurse Serving in the Earthquake Disaster Area:
Please Rescue The Children!
Photo below was taken by Jason Lee of Reuters news agency (China). The caption reads:
“A nurse holding a general’s written order begs soldiers to rescue surviving children still buried in the ruins of another nearby school in the old city district near a mountain at the earthquake-hit Beichuan county, Sichuan province, May 15, 2008. The soldiers are not under the command of the general, whose written order reads: ‘Please arrange for rescue operations at this school as quickly as possible.’”
What were the orders soldiers own general gave them?
When did the authorities decide they couldn’t cope with too many quake survivors?

The Olympics can wait; the survivors can't!
"Although the time for the best chance of rescue, the first 72 hours after an earthquake, has passed [exactly as planned by CPC], saving lives remains the top priority of our work [believe what I say, not what I do, you 'ignorant peasants'],” the [doublespeaking] Chinese president, Hu Jintao, told the survivors.

To the CORRUPT Chinese Government: The World is Watching YOU!
“Parents’ grief turns to anger at shoddily built deathtrap schools”
“Three days after the quake struck, troops and fire engines queued idly along the roadsides waiting for orders.”
“‘I saw a doctor walking along the lines of bloody bodies, checking pulses and looking at wounds. If he shook his head the nurses were instructed not to take the person to the operating theatre but move them to another room to die. It was like a scene from a war film,’ she said.” (Source)
