On lefty hawks
I am as against intervention in Burma, and certainly against invasion, as anywhere else (a country’s first obligation is to its own) but David Holford makes a point:
...the hypocrisy of "Let's ignore the killing of our own babies and go after somebody else's human rights abuses."
A punto.
Do they not realise the Burmese leaders have an idea that most decent people and their governments think they are horrid little men? Bad, bad junta! We don't like you! So there!
Of course they do which is why they’ve had a media blackout for years. They realise almost Zen fashion that if a Western media person doesn’t hear a million people scream then it might as well not have happened.
