By now most people have heard about the 22,000 death toll after earthquakes in China. My prayers go out to the individual Chinese people in those areas.
As can be expected, the Chinese government is denying foreign aid workers access to the afflicted regions, using a flimsy excuse that they cannot "accommodate" them. The real truth is that the Chinese government doesn't want the rest of the world to see the dismal subhuman conditions that Chinese citizens are forced by their government to live under.
I predict that many Chinese quake survivors will suffer needlessly because of the stubborn Chinese government.
