What I want to point out to everyone is that He knew that there is a cyclone coming, and was broadcast in advance by the Juntas. Everybody he met knew. Since it was a CAT 3, nobody gave a damn. But when I read western sourced news they were cliaming the juntas didn't tell their people. Why is this the case ?



That doesn't make sense. If everyone knew a Cat 3 storm was about to hit the delta, why didn't they evacuate? Unless they were mislead to believe it wouldn't cause the effects the rest of the world knew would occur?

Besides which, why are the Junta so opposed to relief agencies helping?

Because they are evil

Starred for being very true, and very fair.

The problem in cases like this lies with the Myanmar government. As is frequently the case, these governments are willing to "save face" even at the expense of their citizens. I feel for the victims, I do not feel for their leaders. I saw a photo on Yahoo this morning of a makeshift scaffold with workers rebuilding the spire of a pagoda in Myanmar. The first thought I had was "Yeah, their governments certainly have their priorities straight!" With scores shelterless and dying in the streets, they're essentially repairing cosmetic damage to a building. That would be like the government here deciding to repaint the courthouse in New Orleans while the Katrina victims were still waiting to be rescued.

Personally I think it would almost be worse for our ships and aid to sit unused off the coast of Myanmar, waiting for the government their to OK our help while scores die than it would be for us to simply bring our ships and aid back to this country. The people are going to suffer and die there regardless unless that government changes its resistance to accepting world aid.

Yeah, it is painful to watch and our country does need aid too.

The Junta will not allow personnel into the country because they are affraid that a coup d'eta will take place and foreign powers will take out the Junta.

So the Junta wants all the supplies to deliver them selves.

The UN however has put a halt on ALL aid because the Junta just captured all the supplies and confiscated them. The Junta's man power is currently maxed, and they have no way of getting supplies to area where the infrastructure has been wiped out.

Current estimates on dead and missing as of now is 65,000 souls, and the UN is ready to declare Myanmar in a Medical Emergency because the Junta has once again ruined the entire rescue effort.

Essan,

Cat 3 storms are not uncommon in the region. The Cyclone went up steam just when it was about to hit Landfall. It was higher than a Cat 3... probably

In my opinion, the Burmese "junta" is doing exactly the right thing for a change. Western NGOs have been praying for a disaster like this so they can sink their bloody claws deeper into that region. They've already developed their leech organizations on the backs of the "needy" in Thailand, Cambodia and Laos. Part of their modus operandi is fabricating emergencies that will open the gates. Nineteenth century missionaries did the same thing except used spiritual emergencies as the excuse instead of physical calamity.

But the results are the same - foreign "doo-good" vampires flood the country by the thousands, setting up portals by which mutinational corporations can operate, capitalizing on hordes of slave labor. Both the cororations and the NGOs ride the gravy train on our donations, our peace corp/red cross volunteers. To be sure, it's always one small band of assholes being uprooted by a much larger band of assholes, but which band will ultimatley be easier for the people to eventually depose? The Burmese have been occupied before and I believe they prefer to deal with their problems by themselves. They should have the moral soveignity to do that.

Other than that I must laugh out loud at this "natural" catastrophe. It's the old old story of the little guys being punished for the nearsightedness of economic progress. Forests and swamps were cleared all along the Irriwaddy delta to make room for non-native cash crops. Here comes a wind! Oops, there's no hills or trees to break down the gale. Yikes, there's no swamp network to level off the floodwaters. Too bad... little brown village goes boom. Can we really take these death tolls seriously when man-made deforestation and erosion are the real culprits? Haiti, China, Indonesia, New Orleans - I can see the next one coming from the levee, can't you?

sounds to me like it was a manufactured storm to effect the change of regime/occupation or whatever the powers wanted and the burmese suspect just that. i hate to see the suffering of all those people but at least they havent been enslaved by big business.......lucky they dont have oil

i believe they would be foolish to let un/us forces into their country when it is in such a weakened state, what do you think would happen.....whatever the most powerful entity wanted, thats what would happen

Hundreds of thousands - possibly millions - of people won't die .....

And how ironic that those who naively seem to be supporting the Burmese Junta do so from nations which have open elections (however flawed they may be), are aware of what has happened there (because their media isn't censored), and where they are free to express their opinions on the internet ......

Today a few of my co-worker's were in a heated debate as to how "natural" this whole cyclone actually was, the debate was over gov. weather pattern manipulation and how the entire disaster would impact rice exports? Just wanted to post these and get a few opinions.


of course it wasnt natural. just look at what was meant to happen politically in Myanmar before it happened for your first clue.

I'm curious to see the science behind it. Please post how this storm was manufactured.

Something to keep in mind is the long-term storm history in the region. Is it that these storms are 'new'? Or is it now we have the capacity to see them before, during and after?
