Lusty has just left singapore on her way to the disaster area.

That’s quite a trek from the western IO.

@ Mark

Amazing article about the C130. The amazing bit is at the bottom where its says the DFID are actually paying for it. Wonder how many girls schools they will have to close for that one.

Wise, be fair, the Chinese are caught between a rock and a hard place. They don’t help, the international community criticises them, they help, their own people will give them a hard time. No win situation for them. And the typhoon did clip a chunk of Chinese territory too, which means that they had their own mess to sort out.
