I looked to see if Columbia South America covered the 2 miners trapped in the coal mines in Columbia. Nothing. Nothing in mainstream media globally on those 2 miners. Not until they announce that they decided the 2 miners could not possible be alive after only 4 days despite the fact Chileans were after 17 days!. No Columbia just did not want to spend the money on the miners. It is obvious what massive rescue effort can do. Maybe if it was a gold mine they would have spent more? The fact that the media covered Chile miners but not their own tells me they never planned to rescue them. Why why was it not covered? Because they did not want the world to know 2 in a coal mine would not get rescued. So they wait until the rescue is cancelled to announce their demise. How very wrong to do humans like that! The media around the world should be putting pressure and offering support to Columbia to keep trying to help those miners who could be alive still sitting there praying waiting for them to come out alive! I believe they are alive. I feel that they are sitting there hoping that they will hear drilling soon. Hoping that they too like the chileans will get out. They saw how after 17 days the chileans survived and cold be telling each other they too can make it. But they need media support. They need teams willing to spend whatever it takes to find a way to get to them. Their ears are posted to the rock. Listening. Hoping to hear the sound of a drill coming their way. Dont let them down.

miners rescue efforts vary. Columbia did not cover the story of their own miners trapped. They covered the chilean effort. Lots of money was spent on them and the result was a fantastic job in rescue. The Columbian miners were not even given coverage until it was announced that their search was cancelled.

see above video. Coal mines support the coal plant industry. There is an elit effort against coal mining becuase of the emmissions alleged they put out. Global warming being the underlying issue. It coudl be easily that one mining accident is more dangerous for rescue than another. BUT! When I see that a mining accident gets el zero media coverage what that tells me is there will not be a rescue. How do we even know the true effort they did for them when the media refuses to cover it? The media was contacted to cover the story and they refused UNTIL they announced search is off. With that fact it is highly suspect at best that there never was a TRUE rescue effort for the Columbian coal miners. China has more money go see THEIR efforts to rescue. So is it money? They got media coverage too. Because a true rescue was in way. Not columbia coal miners though. Nothing in the media folks UNTIL they announce the search was off. I saw one wkbt station mention the miners in an article and watched hourly for any coverage in mainstream media and columbian coverage and there was NONE. UNTIL announcement search was off.
