China Tries To Restore Traffic To Collapsed Bridge

Posted by w_thames_the_d on August 21, 2010

This bridge collapsed yesterday with a train passing over it. The Chinese said that a flood had damaged the bridge, but I think it was just old Chinese quality issues. In addition the recent spike in flooding in China is alarming, and causing people to rethink China’s unfettered climb. Most countries now manufacture here as they can pollute with impunity, add to that all of the corruption and lack of quality standards and one has to wonder when China’s train will derail. But they have been sayhing that about the USA for hundreds of years too.
