There is a hidden war in Burma, a campaign of ethnic cleansing against the Karen people which live in the north.
In the last 10 years 3000 villages were destroyed, people were killed or forced to flee into the jungle.
Burma is a military dictatorship, the opponents of the regime are not allowed.
Here is a video, you can see the government army burning villages and killing all the people they find, women and children included. Also they place land mines everywhere, one was placed in front of someone's house.
There are lots of refugees who live in the jungle and they cannot return to their villages because the army could come back anytime. They formed an army against the government, and also the video shows medics the "Free Burma Rangers" who travel and take care of the refugees

Here is a video about the "army of the child god", also in Burma

This is proof that the war in Iraq or "the war on terror" which does nothing but produces more terrorists is fake, and it is a war for economic reasons - it's very normal : for every Iraqi killed his friends and family may become terrorists
Why doesn't US go into Burma and end that regime ? Maybe because there is nothing there, and for sure there is no oil

I'm not one to typically defend the US's choice in military conflict... but their military is already stretched thin enough, and I can see a conflict with Burma ending up the same way Vietnam did.

There are autrocities like this going on around the globe, it's not just the US's job to do something about it.

Look at Columbia, they are still having troubles with Geurilla warfare, and nobody has gone in there to stop it... there are some battles that, while it is morally correct to enter them, are at the same time un-winable.
I think Burma is an example of this.

I do not want the US to go into Burma-Myanmar, just to stop lying everyone about the "war for freedom", including the US army. It's a war for the big corporations, and the US army is used. There are people who if you tell them anything else than the official doctrine get very upset

Now that I completley agree with. I know their current war on terror ended with Afghanistan. Anything they do in Iraq and possibly Iran is imperialism, plain and simple.

But don't rely on the US to go to war over a moral issue, they don't do that any more, you'd only be disillusioning yourself by hoping for that.

As for Burma, I feel that it's the British who should attempt the next step towards stabalizing the region, as they seem to be the closest players in that field.
