#Japan #Earthquake: Foreign Rescue Help Offered So Far

As reported in various Japanese and foreign news media:

South Korea: 5 rescue workers and 2 dogs.

China: 15 rescue workers.

UK: 59 rescue workers, 2 dogs, and a medical team.

Germany: 40 rescue workers.

Singapore: 5 rescue workers and 5 dogs (they are going to Fukushima)

New Zealand: 48 rescue workers

Australia: 72 rescue workers

US: 140 rescue workers (from USAID), dogs (arriving on 3/13, in Aomori's Misawa Base)

Amazing to see in some of the Japanese bulletin boards a deep resentment and hostility against help from South Korea, even in this emergency. I guess these people live safely away from the affected area of Tohoku and Kanto.

Looking at the excellent performance of the Japanese government in bungling up the nuclear plant disaster and reading about lack of food (and I have to assume water), I wouldn't count much on their own government to do much helping.
