gris, shouldn't we consider the tijuana times or kenyan enquirer? You seek your opinions in the most undiverse of places.

Where do you stand, keeping in mind he's got a military background. String the coach up by the short hairs and make him a scapegoat, or hero?

Wow! An informal British word! The Queen's English is better than no English.    Smiley
Maybe next time, you'll actually be able to answer Craig's question.

I just read the pulling off the impossible part and it was more than enough for me. If impossible it could not have been accomplished so maybe they should have stated it as being a real miraculous event.

Major kudos to the rescue divers for succeeding in the rescue while doing an extremely dangerous job, and my condolences to the family of the diver who perished while laying the tanks to help the rescue succeed.

I don't know if it has been reported here or not but the one fellow that died ran out of oxygen in his swim back to the outside. He had swam to the cave and due to the low oxygen levels opened the valve to his tank to give the stranded some more air, by doing so he sacrificed his life. A mistake, yes, but a very special person none the less.

One "miraculous" timing that has not been emphasized enough is that Thailand is a major attraction for dedicated divers, with start of "season" being "now". This accounts for the many skilled and experienced international cave divers already in Thailand -- people that played some large roles in early days.

Perhaps most decisive early role was played by a Brit living in Thailand and that had already mapped in detail that cave complex when it was dry. His information was used by another  British expert cave diver to lay a long guide rope from entrance to deep into the cave, traversing the "best" route, thus keeping divers from getting lost in the many dead ends that depart from this "best" route. At end of laying that guide rope he surfaced and found himself face-to-face with the lost group -- talk about luck!! -- and value of a good map.

One of the most decisive roles played by Thais was pumping water out of the cave complex and diverting rain water that would have flowed into the cave. That reduced the distance that had to be traversed underwater, speeding divers access to the boys and reducing time required to get them out. That was a feat in its own right!

With all the fast moving blogs and direct reporting I had access to, it was a gripping couple of days, heightened even more because it was such an ongoing success story.

No doubt, it's a success story.

And I'm bonkers? Do you read the same gripping blogs that threaten the sky is falling every time your President and Commander in Chief creates, enforces and shows results for policy that does nothing but benefit you? Ask joeb, by far Thailand's most important contribution to dems is the substitution of 'ph' for the 'ef' when describing your President. Most complete and gripping, eh?

Glad you seem to understand "bonkers". Too bad you still cannot write coherent American English. Or understand it either. Or many you just plain do not understand country you live in. Maybe "bonkers" is better description of you than I thought.
