  [美国记者对中国撤侨现场的不美观后感]

  VALLETTA, Malta – How things have changed. When the 2004 tsunami

  hit the Indian Ocean, America sent the Seventh Fleet of the U.S.

  Navy to help evacuees. China sent a cargo ship.

  Now to evacuate American workers from the crisis in Libya, America

  sent a chartered ferry too small to ride the rough seas of the

  Mediterranean.

  China chartered a giant ocean cruise ship, 20 civilian aircraft,

  four military aircraft and moved 35,860 of its citizens out of

  danger in Libya as of Wednesday, within a week of starting the

  process, according to the Chinese foreign minister.

  瓦莱塔,马耳他,美国记者对中国撤侨现场的不美观后感。 三十年河东,三十年河西。2004年印度洋海啸的时分,我们MD把海军第七舰队派去协助撤侨,而中国就派了一艘货船。眼下为了撤出以后利比亚危机中的美国工人,美国当局就派了条小得跟舢板似的船去风高浪急的地中海。中国出动了一艘大年夜型巡洋舰,20架平易近航客机,4架军用客机,在一周以内,周三之前,就从利比亚撤出了全部的35860公平易近,以上音讯由中国外交部长证实。

  I’m thinking of the comparison as I wait for my plane in Malta, one

  of the evacuation hubs. Lined up in complete silence and total

  order are hundreds of Chinese workers wearing red caps, obeying

  ladies holding up red and yellow Chinese flags like any tour group

  at the Vatican. They follow instructions, wait in long lines, and

  shuffle forward when told. On command, a long single file strides

  through the concourse like an unstoppable column of ants. I am

  reminded of the 1927 German movie Metropolis.

  What a difference. Not one is wearing headphones or playing with a

  telephone or digital device. They are all slim and fit, no sign of

  impending obesity. Their bags are bound with cellophane. Some are

  still in their orange work suits and carrying orange hardhats. They

  were working in Libya’s oil, rail, construction and

  telecommunications industries.

  China’s government chartered a fleet of planes to carry them to

  Shanghai. Quietly, effectively, without fuss, China is evacuating

  all its workers to safety. It is the silent contract between state

  and worker: You work abroad, we’ll look after you.

  我在马耳他的一个撤侨集散中间一边等我的飞机,一边思考这个对比。几百名中国工人带着红帽子排发展队,宁静而有序,领队的mm举着红黄色的中国国旗,看起来就像是假期中的游览团。他们都十分遵从批示,排发展长的队,当被叫到的时分就逐渐往前挪,敕令一下就像一列不成阻挠的蚂蚁一样大年夜步穿过集散中间。
