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!]

Vatican: Loitering at the precipice of irrelevance

Posted by feww on March 11, 2008

The Vatican’s New Sins: One Sin Short of the Grand Jackpot!


Jesus preaching the Sermon on the Mount. [Note: Subject is not wearing a crown!]

Loitering at the precipice of irrelevance, the Kingdom of Vatican has refreshed its traditional seven deadly sins by creating seven modern mortal sins it regards as relevent in an era of “unstoppable globalization.”

The New Seven [Mortal Sins]

  • Environmental pollution [Does that include the 4.6-ton Popemobil which is transported by Hercules plane and is flown all over the world with the “holy entourage?]
  • Genetic manipulation [Moderators reserve comment on this one until the issue is clarified.]
  • Accumulating excessive wealth [How much is much too much? Does that apply to catholic billionaires?]
  • Inflicting poverty [Does paucity of knowledge also count?]
  • Drug trafficking and consumption [What about gambling, prostitution and the war racket?]
  • Morally debatable experiments [Is birth control a morally debatable experiment?]
  • Violation of fundamental rights of human nature [Is the exponential growth economy one such fundamental violation? If not, what about his holiness Tony Blair?]

The Old Seven [Deadly Sins]

  • Pride
  • Envy
  • Gluttony
  • Lust
  • Anger
  • Greed
  • Sloth

[Look! Still no crown. Much paler than the previous apparition, however, the subject is flying without wings!]

Why are some still bickering?

They believe “the Holy See” is shortchanging its subjects. They are one sin short of winning the grand jackpot!
