Chinese paratroopers rescuing survivors or preventing plague?

Posted by feww on May 16, 2008

The Riddle of the Chinese Paratroopers

China parachutes 100 paratroopers to “cut-off” quake area

The first batch of 100 elite paratroopers were parachuted into an area near the epicenter of Monday’s earthquake in southwest China [“cut-off” area in Maoxian county, northeast of the epicenter in Wenchuan] Wednesday afternoon [about 60 hours later], reported Xinhua.

So what’s the problem?

1. There are an estimated 30,000 people burried in the area. How could 100 paratroopers help rescue such large number of victims?

2. The paratroopers landed two days after the mainshock had struck. By then the survival chances of the victims who had been buried alive had already been reduced by about 80 percent.

3. Anyone rescued from the rubble would need medical attention, freshwater, food, blankets, tents … to survive. Did the paratroopers carry all of the vital supplies in their rucksacks?

Therefore, the question remains: Are the paratroopers sent to rescue the “survivors,” or to “finish off the job,” i.e., bury everyone, alive or dead, to prevent potential outbreaks of plague and other pandemics? [The Beijing Olympics are just around the corner!]

    kengkay – The paratroopers were dropped near the quake epicenter in BEICHUAN county. We are told that the number of victims buried in the rubble in that area is probably closer to 20,000.

    An estimated 100-150,000 soldiers were sent on foot or by road, however, they either arrived too late, or waited just long enough before commencing the “rescue” operations, according to the locals. See links below:

    It would be very interesting to know the total number of people that were actually rescued from the rubble [Note: Reliable third-party confirmation is a MUST to prevent the authorities inventing the figures!]

    getting a closer look on what the paratroopers have on them thru this photo is difficult; but there is indeed not enough people nor equipment to really help those estimated 30,000 people buried.

    Mona – Please read the article’s title: ” rescuing survivors or preventing plague [add: in a hurry]?” I wish you were right about this and we were wrong! Unfortunately, history is on our side.

    Keep an open mind and see how things develop. Meanwhile, check the evidence for yourself. That’s if you are interested in the truth:

    If the paratroopers’ true mission was to annihilate everyone, why jump down there in the first place? Why not let the survivors rot to death on their own.

    I don’ buy your riddle. I think the idea is evil to the core. I believe in this time of great crisis we should applaud people helping people.

    Brad,
    It all depends on how much you know about Chinese history. A knowledge of recent history would do adequately. You’re probably too young [I don’t mean to belittle you] to remember the Tiananmen Square Massacre perpetrated by the Chinese government against Chinese students in 1989 but you can read all about it at the following URL [and on many other sites on Internet, as well as books, videos …]
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiananmen_Square_protests_of_1989
    As to the death toll:
    [quote]
    • 4,000 to 6,000 civilians killed – Edward Timperlake.
    • 2,600 had officially died by the morning of June 4 (later denied) – the Chinese Red Cross. An unnamed Chinese Red Cross official estimated that, in total, 5,000 people killed and 30,000 injured.
    • 1,000 deaths – Amnesty International
    • 7,000 deaths (6,000 civilians and 1,000 soldiers) – NATO intelligence.
    • 10,000 deaths in total – Soviet Bloc estimates.
    • in excess of 3,700 killed, excluding disappearance or secret deaths and those denied of medical treatment – PLA defector citing a document circulating among officers.
    • 186 named individuals confirmed dead as at the end of June 2006 – Professor Ding Zilin.
    According to the Chinese government, the “official figure is 241 dead, including soldiers, and 7,000 wounded”.
    Declassified NSA document mentioned casualty estimate of 180-500
    A strict focus on the number of deaths within Tiananmen Square itself does not give an accurate picture of the carnage and overall death count since Chinese civilians were fired on in the streets surrounding Tiananmen Square. And students are reported to have been fired on after they left the Square, especially in the area near the Beijing concert hall.
    [unquote]
    An extensive list of references are included at the same URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tiananmen_Square_protests_of_1989

    Historically, the ruling class in China have always opted to eliminate their own subjects when they “get in the way” or otherwise become a “nuisance.”
