I am at a loss of words about the crisis in Myanmar as a result of the cyclone that hit earlier this week. The UN has delivered enough food for 95,000 people but the military government is not allowing the supplies to be distributed - they are sitting on the tarmac at the airport. What a waste! It seems like the government is committing genocide, that is what will happen if they don't accept help. Hundreds of thousands of people have already died and more are suffering. here is the US, Thailand and other more powerful countries who are offering FREE aid, but they aren't accepting it. Maybe the governemnt's brains and rationale got swept away in the storms too. What a shame. It bothers be every time I see updates on the news about the situation.
