Opinion/Editorial: Politics ‘killing uncounted numbers’ in Burma:Washington Post by karenzr

A Washington Post editorial slams the junta for their ‘obscene’ indifference to human life in the aftermath of Cyclone Nargis. An excerpt:

<< It is politics — the generals’ politics — that is killing uncounted numbers of children in Burma’s delta. It is the generals’ politics to rebuff emergency relief while demanding reconstruction loans that could make the junta richer. And it is the generals’ politics that is forcing villagers to strain the mud for rotten rice while tons of clean food float unused not many miles away. >>
