THE TRUTH - JUSTICE - LOVE
While the people of Bac Tra My district, Quang Nam province, Vietnam is falling into complete anarchy and insecurity about the risks facing with the phenomenon of Song Tranh 2 dam break after the occurrence of a strong earthquake intensity magnitude 4.7 on the Richter scale, the Vietnamese communist government authorities remain deeply relaxed and vacuum jars before the people's lives are seriously threatened. To protect the government's argument, Vietnamese scientists and government has eloquently stated that the plant was safe and people do not need to worry, no need to evacuate .... However, the above worry of people from danger is a concern entirely logical. On governments and talented scientist prominent in Vietnam despite strong claims mouth but none of them dared to speak out will bear responsibility and pay compensation for any damage including human life if the dam break problem happens then?.
Vietnamese people today can not be assured before any other event usually happens when it's always been always weighed in the thought of two things that make them uncomfortable: the increasingly severe corruption from government officials authorities at all levels and in all areas leading to the feasibility and safety of the national project not credible where people. Next, need to say more about the concerns of the people to the level and the actual capacity of Vietnamese scientists, especially in the field of hydro-meteorological predictions, predicted the phenomenon of earthquakes, tsunamis .. etc ... and in many other areas most of in current context of buy sale for rank and function, counterfeit sign and trading of academic that are brought up in Vietnam. Aforementioned anxiety of the people completely logical and justified. We must not forget the tragic events occurred in 1997 due to Typhoon No. 5 International named "Linda storms" caused the deaths of more than 4,500 Vietnamese fishermen and form a "widow" in the village of Khanh Hoi, U Minh District, Ca Mau Province, Vietnam.
Which event hurt in mourning pain that is due to the incompetence and immorality of some scientists in Vietnam, namely the staff of the meteorological station forecast weather and flood storms that year. When Typhoon No. 5 arrived, some storm information and information on the said motion of the storm is broadcast from two sources meteorological forecasts of the United States and Hong Kong. However, the staff of the meteorological station forecast Vietnam incompetent but appear opposite ideas and more dangerous is the attitude arrogant, irresponsible, immoral of Hydrology officials of Vietnam led to a serious wrong decision when they had instruction to all the boats in Vietnam at that time to go into the middle area of the storm to avoid storm!!! there is just one painful tragic events, there are many cases of different sectors again led the Vietnamese people no longer trust in the ethical and professional capacity of Vietnamese scientists and government in generally and the current bad happenings at Song Tranh 2 Hydroelectric dam in particularly.
