Politics! What politics??

I agree with you completely that the main point should be the success of the mission; still, musky stuff like this seems to inevitably attach to high profile operations, often from an individual with no grounding in the environment in which the mission occurs and the hazards present.

Certainly, with something like 9,000 to 10,000 people participating in the rescue operation, logistics and planning were certainly a huge challenge. Sideshows like this tend to confuse and distract from the main operation. This presents a real challenge to those running the show.

My last word on this subject.

If you have closely followed the complete story, there was politics involved with the submarine plan right from the start. The end result is what we are hearing about now and culminating with EM falling on his sword.

What does this have to do with the cave rescue?

Nothing but the moronic tantrums of someone who shouldn’t have inserted himself.

Just finished a quick read of "The Boys in the Cave" bu Matt Gutman, ABC correspondent who was on scene during operation and based this book on his experiences then as well as extensive post operation interviews with many of the principals involved. It is far more detailed than the average news account and discusses many of the physical and cultural challenges that were surmounted.

I read this story with mounting amazement, as order emerged from initial chaotic efforts, resulting in a successful conclusion, although the death of Saman Guman should never be forgotten.

I recommend this volume - highly significant in many ways.

A recent update. When I, originally, read "anti-anxiety medication" that didn't equate to "sedated" for me. WOW!!

Sad, the cave has claimed another rescuer.

Petty Officer Beirut Pakbara, a Thai Navy Seal, contracted a blood infection during the rescue at Tham Luang cave.

Very sad indeed. I'm sure the divers knew the risks involved which makes their heroism even more exceptional. RIP, Petty Officer Pakbara!
