Can't begin to say how glad I am all went well. It very easily could have turned out differently.

So sorry for the Thai Navy Seal who died on Friday, but otherwise what a successful operation. I wonder if this were in USA, how we would have handled it. I don't think we could have done much better.

Unbelievable. I have to admit, I was preparing myself for a very disappointing outcome, as the situation seemed so bleak. A tragedy to have lost that Navy SEAL, but otherwise, what a tremendous outcome. Congratulations all around. Talk about heroes!

I'm sure the movie rights have already been bought.

It's gonna be quite the challenge to find Asian Hollywood male actors to play the roles. How many are there. Five?

I kept thinking even as a swimmer I would have had a panic attack if I had to go thru what those kiddlettes went thru. They deserve medals, too for their courage.

Maybe because he wasn't much from being a kid himself? 25 years old isn't all that old. I read he didn't eat any of the food they brought along, so the kids had something to eat when they got stranded. That is, if you believe what is considered news reporting these days.

At any rate, I'm happy to hear they all got out safe, and a big R.I.P. to the diver that died. sad smiley

i just read an article that puts an entirely different spin on the coach. he went in to look for the boys AFTER parents reported them missing. the boys had gone into the cave on their own.
