Who thinks the UN should get involved in Burma / Myanmar.
I don't think they can go in unless the government of the country 'invites' them, or at least accepts their presence, can they? I think that it would be a good thing for the people of Burma, but impossible in political terms.
BTW, it's Anug San Si Chi's birthday on June 19th. I'm part of an international group which tries to get as many birthday cards sent to her as possible. It's not actually known if she recieves them, being under house arrest, but it just signals to the government that the world has not forgotten the imprisoned opposition leader. I'll try to find the address and publish it here, if anyone else would like to send her a card as well.
Let me rephrase that. Do you think the UN should take military action and impose sanctions on the government of Burma which Holds power illegally having refused to give up power after being voted out in a general election over 10 years ago and having a ton of human rights violations piled up against them? Anyone one looking for information on Burma can study up here. http://www.google.com/search?source=ig&hl=en&rlz=&q=Burma&btnG=Google+Search
I don't think sanctions or military action would help now, but the junta is definately an illegal and criminal regime. It's actions during the UN's typhoon relief are a good example. The concern is that the UN is still trying to bring food and supplies into the country. War or sanctions might disrupt that.
