China Earthquake, Heavy Death Toll, Corruption, Criminal Incompetence

Wen Jiabao, Hu Jintao and the Politburo Gang: Criminally Incompetent, or Calculating Mass Murderers?

Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao and President Hu Jintao represent the worst of a country mired in corruption and sleaze. The criminal gang in the Chinese Politburo have once again proven that the Chinese people may not count on them for their safety and protection.

What Others Say About the Corrupt Politburo Gang in China?

The Anguished Cries of China Quake Nurse

  • 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?
  • What were the orders soldiers own general gave them?
  • When did the authorities decide they couldn’t cope with too many quake survivors?

“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.

Chinese paratroopers rescuing survivors or preventing plague?

The Riddle of the Chinese Paratroopers

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!]

Chinese Leaders Incapable of Handling Quake Aftermath

To climb a tree to catch a fish is talking much and doing nothing.” —Chinese Proverb

Wen Jiaboa and Hu Jianto, like the rest of the ruling gang in China are criminally incompetent officials, incapable of protecting the interest of the Chinese people.

“Wen, seen repeatedly on state TV cradling infants and offering hope to earthquake victims, hailed the ‘order the country has maintained for the past 80 hours,’ the report said.”

What if the order does break up? Will the ruling criminal regime send in the special forces to do a Tiananmen Square job?

Q: Is a corrupt, criminally incompetent regime in China good for the “Free world?”

Beijing’s quick response to disaster won’t cover cracks of corruption

About 6,900 classrooms were destroyed – weaker than other buildings in withstanding the shock. It has also said that as many as 390 dams could be at risk.

China is earthquake prone, Sichuan in particular experiencing a similar scale earthquake in 1933. China’s geologists had warned there was a one-in-10 chance of a recurrence within 50 years and buildings and dams should have been built to strict regulatory standards. They weren’t, especially those built most recently. This is not just corner cutting in the quest for fast growth, or the kind of loose practice that comes to light after disasters everywhere. It is the consequence of systemic non-enforcement of regulations in return for bribes – and everyone in China knows it.

Professor Hu Angang, an economist at Tsinghua university, estimates that one yuan in six is, in effect, corrupt. Even army officers buy their rank.

One mother told the Guardian: ‘Chinese officials are too corrupt and bad … They have money for prostitutes and second wives but they don’t have money for our children.’ It is the same story when it comes to food safety, drug standards or environmental regulations, of which only 10 per cent are enforced. Corruption is ubiquitous, which is why so many buildings were deathtraps. Another woman drew attention to the government and party buildings that remained standing, plainly built to the right specifications.

Almost five million left homeless, China says

Water shortages have become “extremely serious” in Sichuan province, according to Chinese Housing Minister Jiang Weixin. There is no running water in 20 counties and cities in the disaster area, he said.

Corruption blamed for rising death toll in China

A doctor, who had worked for two days without a break in the ruins of school buildings that entombed 900 students, lashed out at those responsible for sub-standard buildings that failed to protect victims of the earthquake.

“It’s nothing but corruption – they must have used sub-standard cement and steel,” said Dr Tian, who was reluctant to give his other name.

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.

    Aha, moderation of blog comments, where is the speech freedom that you guys are so proud of? What make you so afraid of the comments that you didn’t even want to show it here?

    Don’t push your luck! You are allowed to study at Northwestern University, (IL), and speak freely in this country, despite your ardent support for the repressive regime in China.

    By the way, I AM A CHINESE. And I am as a Chinese very angry about those deliberately biased articles about my country.

    The article is in no way biased against the Chinese people, or China as a country. [The truth always hurts, of course, if you are on the wrong side!] It is critical of the criminal gang that have usurped power in China. The extent of the damage resulting from the earthquake in the Sichuan province could have easily been mitigated, had the corrupt individuals in your communist politburo performed their duties adequately and acted in good faith with the interest of the Chinese masses in mind.

    The evidence provided by the article is incontrovertible. The ensuing human catastrophe that is rapidly unfolding, created by the lack of freshwater, food and shelter, and coupled with Olympics-first policy of your criminal leaders [exemplified by the repugnant human rights record of China’s corrupt communist regime, e.g., Tiananmen Square massacre] will only strengthen our case.

    Our hearts are with the Chinese people, especially families and friends of the earthquake victims in Sichuan province.
