China's earthquake tragedy...

As the death toll keeps rising as more towns and villages are found to have been devasted, I hope the chinese authorities will start to accept more outside help, especially from teams ofering search and rescue support with sniffer dogs. At this stage the priority is not in recriminations but must be in locating and rescuing any survivors and, as with the Burmese cyclone, no country should have to cope alone in the face of such disaster beacause these tragedies are beyond political control and reach out to the wider humanity in all of us.
