A reminder to all that the genocide in Burma continues on this 59th anniversary of International Human Rights. Please help by clicking on this link for the U.S. Campaign for Burma which will tell you what you can do. Of course it will take more, much more than sanctions and embargoes, but no country especially ours wants to piss off China by marching through their back door. Other factors include Burma being one of the strongest heroin producers for the east (makes them very popular).
Personally I recommend emailing the White House just to remind George that when he's done chasing down terrorists and buried nukes, Burma is dying a slow death.
