Officials say in South Korea have said the recovery of the Sunken ferry could take up to two months. This estimation has taken place 3 days after the ferry capsized on Wednesday.
It’s not really looking good for the possible survivors on that ferry. If anybody has survived the sinking, they’re going to either die of starvation and thirst of they’re going to suffocate from the air running out.
2 weeks is a very long time in the for them to try and find people but from what I can tell that the boat looks far out but I could be wrong. They’re saying the conditions aren’t right for diving at this time. Didn’t realize that people life needs ideal water visibility conditions. But hey.
The captain has said that he waited so long to evacuate people because he was afraid of people floating away. That seems like a comedy reason. No it really does sound pathetic. People’s lives were at danger but don’t let them float away like rubbish or something of that ilk.
So if it does take that long this is going to be one of those stories that will only end in tragedy. Shame really because while we wait for the news on the Malaysian plane we could have had a bit of good news.
The captain of the Korean ferry that capsized earlier in the week has been arrested. The man who was in charged of the doomed passenger ferry has been charged with of negligence and dereliction of duty.
You know what I spoke too soon when I was praising this man for staying on this ship because it looks like this man actually went overboard to save his own backside.
My god the man is a coward.
I can’t actually say that he did do what is suspected because that hasn’t come out in the press but when nearly 200 plus people are missing but he is still alive there seems to be some a bit fishy there.
If he has jumped off the ship to save his life and left people to die on that ship then he should be put up on murder charges as well. He should have helped people get off the boat instead of trying to save himself.
But people are cowards and they try to save their own lives.
If he had to… he should have gone down with the ship. To be honest he should have been the last person off that boat. The captain goes down the with ship. It’s morally right and it’s the traditional thing to do. This is coming from a person who doesn’t go with tradition.
If it does come out that he has let people died to save his own skin then they South Korean authorities should throw the book at the man.
All sides in the Ukraine crisis has agreed a deal to end tension with in the embattled country of Ukraine. Ukraine, USA, Russia and The EU has come to a settlement that should end the problems in the East of the country. All four parties have been in talk in the Swiss city of Geneva.
So they’ve finally come up with a deal that will help with the problem in Eastern Ukraine. I see a problem with that, the only people this suits are the Nazis in Kiev. They get to see people that have been protesting removed then they can carry on removing the human and civil rights of Eastern Ukrainian slowly.
The EU won’t stop them nor will the American because they get a new friend nad it suits them to piss off Russa. You know what this has actually been all about this backing of Kiev. Making Russia look bad so they can buddy up with so nice people in Kiev.
I really have been sick by the rhetoric through out this making Russia look liuke the bad guy while the EU having backing right wing neo-Nazis. We need friends so were going sit by while peoples rights are taking away and people get called terrorist for no reason.
Well I would expect the Americans to sad by the Terrorist claim, they have spent the last 12 years calling everybody they don’t like Terrorist. Why should things change.
Russia should have fought harder. They shouldn’t have stopped until they got the former Ukraine President back in office. That was the rightly elected person to be running the country not these usurpers.
The West and Russia have done the right thing by calling time on this crisis but they should have come to a point where the right wing government was dropped on it’s head and nobody asked a question. They should have let the original democratically elected leader come back in to power.
Emergency Services are searching for almost 300 missing people. The search began after a South Korean Passenger Ferry sank with over 400 people aboard. Officials say that 174 people have been rescued.
It’s really not been the best year for South East Asian transport this year has it? First there’s the missing plane that still hasn’t been found after that is now 5 weeks I believe and now a Korean boat has sunk killing almost 300 people.
I’m waiting for the conspiracy nut to start linking these two events together and pointing to the ‘New World Order’.
It’s a massive shame really because who ever is left on that ship has drowned or died trying to get out. I know I’m being joyful but if you look at the angle the boat is on, it’s upside down there is no way people are going to get out of their alive.
There maybe somebody in an air bubble that odd incredibly lucky person but I very much doubt that it’s the truth.
South Korean media are showing the valiant rescue mission to get people out. This is probably going to be some brilliant piece of propaganda if this all goes sour. They couldn’t save the people but at least we made the best effort in trying to save them. It’s a good message to read.
At least we won’t have to hear about some coward captain like we did with the Concordia. The captain who decided to jump ship when he realized he was screwed. I want to hear how the captain saved the lives of the people on that ship in the coming days. Give the story some good news when we finally find out how bad it is.
Soon we’ll hear the horrors of what happened on that boat when the investigation comes about. Hopefully we’ll not have that sad a story and everything it be nice a pleasant. It’s a shame really because we’vee lost another 300 lives.
The troubled Eastern European country Ukraine is on the Civil War. The Government of Ukraine in Kiev has sent troops and air craft in to the East of the country to try and retake military bases. This is an escalation of tensions after weeks of inaction.
Well this has gone way too far and this is what happens what happens when you let fascist governments take control of a country. Forget what your citizens want and do what you want. This is disgusting behavior what happened to the right of self-determination. To be honest what did you expect from a Government that has ties to Neo-Nazi Organisations.
The West is still backing their friends in Kiev. We turn a blind eye to what’s going in a country. Why? Because we want friends and we want Ukraine to join the European Union. If this is what the European Union is about then it’s another reason to pull out while we can.
There is no point in being in this happy friend group when it’s going to cost people’s lives and people’s freedoms. But hell if they join the European Union who cares.
The Russians are pissed off with this situation and they’ve called the UN over this. Well that’s the UN going to do nothin g. They’ve had a chance to do something for weeks when we realized that this whole situation was only going to play in to the hands of extremists. But hell as long as America and Western Europe are happy who cares.
They’re also saying that this action from Kiev could launch in to a Civil War. Well have we not actually been waiting for this. This is going to be the Civil War that drags the rest of the World in to war. Everybody has made their camp clear and not they’re going to have to back their side or it’s going to be seen as weak and helpful if they begin to flake out now.
The West has brought another country to it’s knees and on the verge of Civil War I hope that they’re proud of themselves. It will b e up to the Russians now to pull us back to the point of sanity.
Pro-Russians have stormed another Government Building in Eastern Ukraine. This fresh confrontation between Pro-Russian Forces and Kiev loyal Government forces came about after the Pro-Russians ignored a deadline to leave the building that they occupy.
I just love the approach that the BBC took over this story. The Pro-Russian forces attacked the building. It makes them sound the they were in a bloody attack like some kind of Terrorists or maybe Vikings.
Ukraine’s president has hit out at Russian Aggressors calling them Terrorists. Well he’s come out with the most pathetic word in Politics ‘Terrorist’. Well that’s just lazy if you want to rally the world to your side stop using the word Terrorist.
Firstly it’s used by dictators to talk about people who want Freedom but to be honest I’d expect from a pathetic right wing Neo-Nazi Government. Secondly it’s become a cliche and it’s a sad one at that. Do you realize how many pathetic world leaders has used the word Terrorist.
I’m supporting this action for the Pro-Russian to take control of a Government Building.
Because despite what the Government in Kiev say they’re not going to allow the East Ukraine people a vote in their future. What they’re going to do is to keep hold of East Ukraine and then they’re going to treat the Russian People like second class citizens and possibly create an Aprtheid state or even Ghettos before they kill them all.
Again I’m going to call on the West to see sense and come to the East Ukraine’s defense and help them be rid of this right wing regime.
A Ukrainian officer has been killed in gun battles in the city Sloviansk. The Ukrainian interior minister said that the battle took place when pro-Russian forces took over GOvernment buildings in the city.
I love how the BBC has actually said who actually fired the first shot. Some how I suspect that the Ukrainian Forces opened fire first and the media don’t want to point out the fact that the Kiev forces have started another street battle and it goes against the Western view of poor little Kiev.
I’m really getting sick of this one sided poor little Kiev being harassed by Moscow. Moscow the big bad aggressor forcing it’s will upon the people of Ukraine. When will it stop?
Again the West has jumped to the backing of Kiev. Very sad if you ask me.
When you think that we spent a whole war fighting the Nazis and other right wing parties across Europe when are we backing a far right Government that seized control and forced out an elected president. Why? Because we want happy friends who will go against Moscow and love Washington and Brussels. Yay we like new friends who cares if they are taking civil Liberties from ethnic groups.
Again in my eyes the government in Kiev has proved that it can’t be trusted and I’m really hoping that Russia takes Eastern Ukraine just for the sake of the Russian speaking people who live there before they’re executed for being Russian.
