Free Burma!

Free Burma!

An estimated 200 people have been killed by the ruling military junta during the recent peaceful demonstrations in Burma. Although the country currently has a high profile in the news, Burma has a history of human rights abuses. More background may be found in the BBC's profile of Burma.

Today, October 4th 2007, thousands of bloggers worldwide are making a single post to raise awareness of the situation and press for change. If you have a blog, why not join in?

FREE Burma!!!

Bush slammed the UN and the rulers of Myanmar in his UN speech last week.

The UN must do something, but they never use military force to fight.
That is a huge problem.

Illegal drug fortunes are a BIG part of this.

absurd thought -
God of the Universe wants
complete narco states

criminals in power
loving the corrupt drug war

absurd thought -
God of the Universe says
shoot peaceful protesters

calling for democracy
which you must never allow

I agree the military junta ruling Burma is clearly in the wrong, but I don't think military intervention, by the UN or anyone else, is necessarily the solution. Wouldn't want another Iraq...
