Regarding US help, credit where credit is due. It is
sensible to expect that right now there is major
shortage of air lift capacity, especially helicopters,
and luckily USN and USAF have considerably capacity in
the area. The Pacific Command did provide P-3 Orions
(observation planes, the kind that Chinese captures
some time earlier) to be used in search and rescue,
and USAF is providing C-130s (aka Hercules, a cargo
plane) to be used for transport. USN also has at least
one carrier and other ships on the way. See
(Yes the source is basicly a PR wire, but I have no
reason to doubt the facts presented.)

Glad to see millitary being put to good use. Other
defence forces have helped too, Pakistan Navy in
Maldives for example.
