MYANMAR/BURMA

Saturday, September 29, 2007
The evil military has opened fire on unarmed civilians, killing many. Estimates of the dead range from ten to two hundred. The military dictators have surrounded Buddhist monasteries and are working to shut down the Internet. This is a small but prime example of the evil of coercion and selfishness. This is greed and violence readily apparent. Behind the scenes no doubt lies sexual confusion.

    Free Burma!

    International Bloggers' Day for Burma on the 4th of October

    International bloggers are preparing an action to support the peaceful revolution in Burma. We want to set a sign for freedom and show our sympathy for these people who are fighting their cruel regime without weapons. These Bloggers are planning to refrain from posting to their blogs on October 4 and just put up one Banner then, underlined with the words "Free Burma!".

    @Free Burma! -

    This was a good effort, but where are the voices now a year later?

    Condi Rice was speaking out. Laura Bush was even chiming in. Oil money won out though over the needs of the people.

    How many Buddhists died?

    Then came the floods.

    Why are U.S. businesses paying the military dictatorship?

    Why is the U.S. up in arms about Iran while Burma kills its people?

    George W. Bush did nothing because he doesn't think (wasn't instructed by his handlers that) Burma is strategic.

    It's too bad that only selfish interest is what matters to the U.S. government.

    If only the U.S. would stand up for what is right for its (righteousness') sake.

    Pray God,
