    Anger and Suffering in Myanmar

    How sad...

    http://inthefield.blogs.cnn.com/2008...ng-in-myanmar/

    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.
    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.
    Insert pithy saying here.

    It's very hard to justify sending our troops anywhere when there is no clearly identified strategic importance to the US. Unless we participated in a UN effort, there is nothing compelling to answer why we should be risking our troops or taking on the economic burden.

    Sadly, the UN is more incompetent running itself than Ray Nagin was in running New Orleans around the time of Katrina.

    Is Myanmar threatening or invading it's neighbors? Is Myanmar working on WMD's and/or Nuclear bombs? Is Myanmar shooting at our planes? Has it threatened to blow another country and all it's people off the face of the earth? Has it attacked us? Does it harbor people who have attacked us?

    The only thing they are guilty of is butchering their own people. We see that all over the globe.

    Unless the UN or the US makes it a global mission to enlighten and free every world citizen and instill a minimal set of equal rights for all people on the planet, we would have to have some other reason to invade this or any other country like this.

    We don't touch anything in the Chinese sphere of influence. Nothing good can come of that.
