Now this begs a hypothetical. Suppose we never invaded Iraq, and with most of our military resources in Afgahnistan, the Taliban were crushed and the country is on its way to prospering. Is it the United States' place with the UN to go in and push the Junta aside and render aid to the people of Myanmar. In this situation do we keep recognizing their soverignty despite their unwillingness to care for their own people? I was just wondering what your guys (and gals) thoughts were on this.A quick glance is all it took to see why the Myanmar government wants to keep the rest of the world out. Devastation was everywhere.
Bodies were still scattered along the delta two months after the cyclone. I knew weíd see them, I just didnít know how haunting it would be. There was no avoiding the stench of death. Itís an odor that sends chills through the soul.
All I could do was say a silent prayer. These were people who deserved better. It was shameful to see them rotting like their lives didnít matter.
