If you post something in a language other than English in the international forums, you have no right to call people who can't read Chinese idiots.

But it's common for any authority to cover up death tolls - it is in their best interests to do so after all.

I don't think he called someone who can't read Chinese as fool. Read carefully before jumping into conclusion. Also, while this is a forum that uses English, there's nothing that say one can't use information / sources from other languages. If you really need to read the info in English, just get it translated on-line.

The 100000 casualty is just plain ridiculous, just like other extremely unflattering propoganda figures that being released by the anti-China groups in the West.

This is why I HATE ALL FORMS OF GOVERNMENT!!! People don't hate each other as much as governments make them hate each other.

There's quite a few heads of state right now I'd like to see their asses beaten down...

If it's true that there are fewer than 30,000 people employed on the railway construction project, then the casualty figure is obviously not accurate.

No, thinking about it the amount of 100,000 seems unbelievably high. Can't be true.

BEIJING (XFN-ASIA) - ABB Ltd, a Swiss-Swedish power and automation technology company, said it has signed an 18.1 mln yuan contract with Qinghai Electric Power Co to deliver gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) to the Qinghai-Tibet railway.

In a statement, ABB said it will supply seven circuit breaker bays of GIS to the 1,956-kilometer long railway, the world's highest, between northwestern China's Qinghai province and Tibet in the southwest.

===============================
If some one wants to know about China, it is better to study the first hand information, which are in Chinese, rather than rely on some secondhand information in English.

Obviously 100.000 deaths is ridiculous!

Unless this line was under construction since the 1950's or so, and it's workers back then had to endure Mao's regime or something... In that case, it could be possible. We all know that an awfull lot of people died in siberia during railway construction during Stalin's reign.

Anyway, if it's a new construction (from the last 10 or 15 years) that 100.000 figure is utterly ridiculous of course...

100.000 ??? That's impossible! No one would like to work in the construction! Or at least how many years has the works taken?

CHINA | Railway Development

Key project completed for China's first high-speed, electrified trunk railway
30 May 2005
Xinhua's China Economic Information Service

NANCHANG, May 30 (CEIS) -- Construction of a bridge, a key project for the upgrading program of the trunk railway between Zhejiang and Jiangxi provinces in east China, was completed over the weekend.

The railway is China's first trunk railroad that is being upgraded for electrified trains with a running speed of 200 kilometers per hour, according to Cai Guoqiang, deputy director ofthe rail road construction headquarters in Jiangxi.

Named Fuhe, the bridge is located in Jinxian County of Nanchang City, provincial capital of Jiangxi, with a total length of 1,380.59 meters. It is a double-line railway bridge designed to accommodate 200-km/hr cargo and passenger trains, the official said.

The Zhejiang-Jiangxi railway upgrading program started May 2004 and plans to have its mainstream project completed at the end of August 2005, he said.

The railway, from Hangzhou, capital of Zhejiang Province, to Zhuzhou, a city in central China's Hunan Province, is 942 km long, including a 564.1-km section in Jiangxi Province.
