This is a cause for human rejoicing, compassion, and admiration of their resiliency, regardless of national origin. We need to start seeing the humanity that unites us, instead of the false labels that divide us.

What a great sense of pride the President of Chile showed, and what a difference from Obama. The first words from Obamas mouth would have been "It's Bushs fault"

OK, all the hoopla is now over. It is now time for the lawsuits to fly. Yep, all of us who cheered at least the first 'Jose' to come out of the hole, will now be graced with a 33 member lawsuit to hear about for months to come.
Yep, those 33 who owe their lives to the Chilean government, the rescuer's , the media and their family are going to sue the crap out of the Chilean government and the Mine..........
So much for hero's huh?

Should they not have the right to sue for lack of regulation in a mine that had troubles in the past and were not addressed? If the government had done its job, there would be no question about who these minors owe their lives to.
