I'd ask you to contribute to the relief cause for Burma (and yes, it's Burma, not Myanmar), but as long as their evil dictator and his henchmen remain in power, the relief likely won't get to the starving and desperate survivors. I'm not sure what to do myself...
Once again, it's the failings and complicity of the evil communist rulers in neighboring China that is the root cause of the fresh atrocities in Burma. Inaction and immoral complicity on China's part will now lead to the deaths of tens of thousands of innocents in neighboring Burma.
So, what can you do?
1) Boycott China and Chinese goods, and know that when you buy Chinese you support evil
2) Donate to the Burma relief agencies, in the hopes that one day relief may be allowed into Burma
3) Hope for the violent overthrow of the corrupt Burmese government by their starving and desperate people, or even their own soldiers. Desperate times call for desperate measures and I hope to see General Than Shwe and his thugs swinging from ropes soon
Burma makes Bush and New Orleans look like a non-event. The suffering in Burma, an epic collision of global warming, corrupt government and nature's havoc, is on a scale that will shock you, if you care.
