Give war a chance. For once, I’m in favour of military intervention.
Go in and drop the food aid. Fuck them. If they try to shoot down the transport planes, bomb the shit out of the anti-aircraft batteries. Target the bastards. Do what the West was so disgracefully good at in Iraq and before that in Bosnia when they discovered a backbone.
Who cares that there’s no money to be made from Burma? So what if there’s no oil? Who cares that Cheney’s buddies won’t get rich from it? Dubya will make a few shillings from the replacement weapons they buy from Carlton, but that isn’t the issue. For once, instead of the hollow rhetoric about humanitarian motives for military action, the politicians could actually be telling the truth. We did it to save the people. Wouldn’t that be great? Wouldn’t it be great, for once, to believe in something a politician says?
Go in, drop the food aid. Take out the AA batteries with your smart bombs. These fucking goons are a bunch of crooks with no substance and they’ll fold under the pressure. They’re not a real military. They’re criminals.
It won’t solve the whole problem but it will be a start, and then we can begin to give the Burmese people a new chance of life. Who knows, maybe Aung San Suu Kyi’s long struggle might not be in vain.
If the world stands by and lets these criminals inflict such a tragedy on their people, we should be ashamed of ourselves forever.
Fuck them. They’re only a bunch of mobsters.
Face them down.
Send in the food.
I make no apology for using pictures from other sites on this issue. It’s too important. If anyone wants a picture removed, email me and I’ll take it down.
