4. The Burmese government is deliberately trying to kill their people.
My doctor went there with Doctors Without Borders to help after the 2004 tsunami. He returned two weeks later in disgust, because the government was preventing them from treating people. He told me that since the people of that region were not pro-government, and were sitting on oil-rich land, the government was letting them die to get them out of the way. It appears that the same thing is happening now.
I am not sure what we in the west can do, if they will not allow aid to flow in. Short of a war, how can we force their government to cooperate? My heart goes out to those poor people.
