Now some silly guys are claiming TCG Anadolu can sail to Hatay and help for rescue operations.
They definitely have no idea on how things work on field and practice. They think it is a game to land and take off a helicopter and believing all pilots can do that safely.
Need to relocate Seahawks, orient them, neither crew to operate the vessel is ready for such an operation and it could end up disastrous.
They all think it can be a "floating" station for helis to carry injured.

Some people may interpret this as a conspiracy theory, and frankly I don't care: something was hidden here by fire.
I believe the fire has started with cables supporting some cooled containers in the storage. Very likely to happen with containers collapsing.

Well if you take a look from the sky , all the containers block the fire. The only way to extiguish the fire is from above. Weather was pretty bad as well. (before)
also some fire types are diffirent. If there is a fire cause by electricity you cannot use water. You must use Powder or CO2 or other fluids that are compatible with that type of fire.

Civilian construction equipment can already reach the areas. There are destroyed tunnels and damaged asphalt roads, but it is not a deprived area, it can be reached with appropriate vehicles and in a coordinated way. As a matter of fact, many business people and philanthropists went to the region with the means at their disposal, with construction vehicles, aid trucks and mobile kitchens.

But look, I am telling you clearly that even mainstream media journalists cannot broadcast from inside the places where the destruction is horrible. Because the people are angry. These people have stayed up in the freezing night hearing the cries of their relatives under the rubble. People are angry and intolerant, and they have every right to be. The reflexes of our state have shown weakness, the government has not been able to take the necessary steps at the required speed. People were made to feel that they had no one. Even if an earthquake victim goes to the governor in that region and beats the crap out of him, that governor has no right to say anything, let alone grin, he has to listen and immediately make an effort with whatever means he has at his disposal.

The Turkish army has a huge manpower. Forget the equipment, the soldiers can clean the rubble with their bare hands. The army should have come out of their barracks immediately and unit commanders should have placed 10 or 20 soldiers at each rubble. I am really very sad and devastated, and there are many things I would like to write about at a more appropriate time.
I was thinking if you can tell me, if the international response teams having any positive effect, or is it practically insufficient and just symbolic?

Well from our side of many experiences we had unfortunately, usually internasional contingents come from chosen experienced seasoned crews and expert. Although they would be small in number but they can effectively doing wonder jobs via guiding and sharing experience they has with the local forces to do more concerted and appropriate rescue and search effort and they also bring the best equipment their respective country can offer.

Btw any helping hands is count, you need more Forces on the ground as you are racing against time. God speed.
