22,000 Dead

Reading about the situation in Myanmar yesterday on Yahoo.com broke my heart. What's going on there is seriously messed up. Nah, it's fucked up! That's the only way to describe the government/junta. A bunch of fucked up bastards! 22,000 dead because of a cyclone?! Naturally, you'll ask yourself. What are they doing for their people?

Latest news reports say that an estimated 41,000 people are missing. Instead of readily accepting all the help they can get, the military regime is "negotiating" with aid workers. George W. Bush among many other leaders want to help them. I'll rephrase this. They need to help Myanmar because the world knows that the junta isn't gonna do anything for their people. Remember what they did to the monks the last time around?

Cnn.com reported that the dead are being thrown into rivers. Homes have been destroyed and they are running out of food. Without medical supplies, the sick and injured can't get the help they need.

The people of Myanmar are fighting against time. Hundreds of thousands of are in need of aid. All we can do now is hope and pray that help will be accepted soon...

  3. I saw just on the cover of business times that the death toll may well hit 100,000?

    That's fucked up man! I have friends in Myanmar and there's no way to find out if they're ok. That's even more fucked up.
