Another reason to hate China ?

How quickly the media manage to spin on global headlines...

As I've been reading more about the massive death tools mounting in China and
Myanmar (Burma) this week, I've noticed a few different spins occurring.

One is the issue with delays in getting foreign
aid to Myanmar and the other is blame for the Chinese deaths on corrupt government. It kind of reminds of the Katrina disaster.

What use is this side story of blame for the loss of thousands of lives ? Is it to fire up our collective global consciousness or to rally against scrupulous foreign governments. If diplomatic missions fail, are they reasons for embargoes and war ?

One thing is clear, we know who the victims are.
