Undersecretary of State criticizes Myanmar's junta

Jan. 9 (Bloomberg) -- Myanmar's junta has rejected taking any steps toward democracy since pledging to open talks with the opposition after September's anti-government protests, U.S. Undersecretary of State Nicholas Burns said.
While the regime ``made a few unremarkable gestures,'' such as appointing a minister to meet with opposition leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, ``it has since halted even this hint of progress and, in fact, has moved backward,'' Burns wrote in an article for the Washington Post yesterday.

Myanmar is run by madmen who are all alone in their fight against democracy.


  1. And if you're trying to start an argument, you just failed miserably. Every nation in the world has spoken out against the violence that occurred, even the United States. The Myanmar junta just isn't listening.

  2. Again, Myanmar is a waste of a place. The name speaks for itself. Nominus ipse loquitor, bitch. If they do not pose a threat to us or give us any advantage over another nation, we should not care about them.
