Outside help for China' Earth Quake

Doctors without borders is there (I did not realize this).

The only help China is accepting is some quake experts per this NY
Times article:

My opinion is China does not want to lose face by showing they need
too much outside help. I am surprised they are even getting quake
experts from Taiwan (very interesting politics) and Japan (still strange).

The type experts are ones who have tools to find people buried such as
fiber optic probes, etc. They are also allowing direct flights from
Taiwan to China (usually only happens on Chinese New Year since 1949,
but promised to change with the new government that will be assuming
office in Taiwan soon).
