Well well, here we have yet another deadly train crash in Europe.
It seems if the Europeans like to crow about their superior technology and safety records they could at least keep two
trains from meeting head-on.

If this happened in China you know all the comments you'd hear from the usual western propagandists who love to
point fingers at China and blame everything on the Chinese government.

February 9, 2016
BAD AIBLING, Germany — Two commuter trains crashed head-on Tuesday morning in a remote area in southern Germany,
killing at least nine people and injuring some 150, some of whom had to be cut out of the wreckage and transported
across a river for medical care, police said.

The two regional trains crashed before 7 a.m. on the single line that runs near Bad Aibling, in Bavaria, and that
several cars overturned, police spokesman Stefan Sonntag stated. Fifty of those hurt have serious injuries, he added.

It took hours to reach some of the injured in the wreckage and authorities were still working at midday to remove
the final body from the train.

Most recently, a train driver and one passenger were killed when a train hit the trailer of a tractor in western
Germany in May, injuring another 20.

In 2011, 10 people were killed and 23 injured in a head-on collision of a passenger train and a cargo train on a
single-line track close to Saxony-Anhalt's state capital Magdeburg in eastern Germany.

Germany's worst train accident happened in 1998, when a high-speed ICE train crashed in the northern German town
of Eschede, killing 101 people and injuring more than 80.

If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

What a bunch of rot.

Pastor:

it seems you are also moderator. If I reply to one of your posts, my reply often goes missi ...

Bad technology, stupid Germans, it makes little difference to those dead.
I know you wish you could gloat over a Chinese train wreck but today you eat crow.
