Sichuan Earthquake: The Chinese Government Does The Right Thing

I can't imagine the pain, loss and terror that the massive earthquake in China has caused. My thoughts are with the survivors and the families of the victims. But the Chinese Government has responded very speedily and openly to the disaster, sending in huge numbers of soldiers and helicopters from all over China to assist the recovery effort. And today, China has asked for any help that the international community can provide. If only China could persuade its client state Burma to do likewise.

Anyway, here's the link to the International Red Cross site.
