Myanmar Old China
The unfathomable despotic regime in Burma continues to allow its people to suffer and die while simply paying lip service and patting heads on the state controlled media. All this as the regime’s closest ally suffers unimaginable death and devastation from the massive Sichuan earthquake. But whereas the Chinese military appear to be doing all they can the Burmese junta appear to have adopted a ‘let them eat cake’ attitude for the 21st Century and their people continue to die and unless attitudes change dramatically things can only get worse. For those unfamiliar with Cockney rhyming slang 'china' is shorthand for friend i.e. China Plate - mate.
