      Question Japan

      Just been watching sky news and the amazing effort of a British rescue team. They are working around the clock in a snow blizzard, in extremely dangerous structures. I am totally humbled.
      As for the Japanese people, my heart goes out to them and when i see how calm and organized they are even after such a huge natural disaster i have nothing but respect for then.
      it happens a lot everywhere in the world...

      Such a shame wat is going on, and the Government there is lying to their teeth. There would have been rioting and looting elsewhere!

      Good to see nations from all over the world being sent to Japan, Australia included. Considering that many of the guys did their stint in Christchurch they have done a hellava job

      They have done a great job, it's been non stop for some of the rescue workers, first Brisbane floods, then Yasi, then NZ and now Japan.

      Watched a couple of different news clips this weeks that showed Japanese & Australian rescue teams going straight from New Zealand to Japan. You look at the pictures though and there's so much debris, and you think, honestly, where do you start?

      Yes it is hard to imagine what things would be like without these selfless individuals.

      My apologies for not mentioning the other earthquake rescue teams including the Aussies, I was just commenting after watching the Brits on Sky news UK but of course they are all heros.

      Ironically Just a couple of weeks before Japan had rescue teams in Christchurch.
      The world is very cruel sometimes.
