Update on Burma

Posted by Helen Thursday, May 15, 2008

There is very little good news from that country. Another cyclone is on its way and the Burmese government seems as determined as ever to reject help though it could be that they do not want NGOs in the country.

Gateway Pundit has an excellent round-up with many quotations about the uselessness of the UN (nothing new there). There are also pictures and videos taken at some risk to their lives by members of Burmese pro-democracy movements. They are, I must warn our readers, harrowing.

It seems that some American aid is reaching the country and, as ever, the much maligned United States of America, its navy and air force are standing by to send in whatever they can.
