    I want to know why Kochie (David Koch) is not over in Thailand broadcasting from inside the cave for the Sunrise program.

    Because they are keeping all media well away until it's all finished.
    There were a few idiots pushing microphones in peoples faces at very inappropriate times.

    I find it amazing that they won't let the boys that are out hug their parents, some of those boys are really upset in the photos.

    I can understand a quick basic health check but some breathing masks and a sterile coat would be sufficient.

    A hug from Mum and Dad will lift their spirits quicker than any medicine

    Apparently there are some real nasties in that water, bacteria and virus from Human and Bat feces....i think its more than a health check...

    Yeh if a health professional can safely attend to the kids all gowned and gloved, then so can the parents. And as you say, it's more potent than any medicine.

    The parents are staying at the cave till all are rescued. Thais do things differently to our "me me me" self centered culture. Parents routinely have to work away from their children for years while Grandparents watch them.

    Guaranteed they will all be accepting of the decision.

    Hooray.

    Let's hope this serves as a lesson to those rescue authorities who prefer to use risk assessments as an excuse to stand around instead of doing something splendid.

    Bolt's article was good. Same theme - drop everything, cooperate, do away with red tape, act with speed...and achieve.

    Isn't it strange that this same approach can't be brought to all the other situations in the world, some of them even worse than this.

    Hopefully the Aussie media fks off and lets them clean up. They are annoying the hell out of the locals.
