17. Many of the areas hit by the Tsunami were ruled by military juntas
Edited on Fri May-09-08 01:43 PM by Robbien
Aceh for one was almost starved to death when the military junta took the food aid and sold it on the black market.

The only difference between the Tsunami aid and this hurricane aid is that our corporate media was silent on the Tsunami juntas and is screaming at the top of their lungs on the Myanmar juntas.

Our elites didn't want anything from the Tsunami juntas, but they want access to oil from the Myanmar junta.
