fighting the lack of good ideas

burma allowing help… finally

I read in the Wall Street Journal this morning that, 5 weeks after the cyclone that devastated their country, the Burmese (“Myanmarish”) government is finally allowing UN relief helicopters to bring food to the needy.It’s truly sad. The government sent the US Navy, who wanted to help, away. And they’ve disallowed UN relief efforts for over a month.A government that can’t be bothered to allow people to help it when it’s in trouble is going to kill its citizenry.
