I too am outraged. Our prime minister has said hell impose sanctions on the country but doesnt want to hurt the population of burma. and yes mw I think that if we discovered something as valuable as oil/diamonds over there, then we might (western society) have a lot more to do with it. Our political leaders only intervene when they think it will benefit them, not when its only something as mundane as lives that depend on it. I dont know exactly what to do about it myself. I'll email as many political leaders here that I can to intervene I guess. Any suggestions?????? love the grey
and...does ANYBODY believe that this is a coincidence ?????
