The military is guaranteed a quarter of the seats in replica Bell & Ross watches parliament, the generals are retiring so they can run as politicians, the government is privatizing businesses and selling them off to themselves and their friends so they can retain control of all the key industries no matter what the outcome of the election. This is such a farce that the main opposition party, the party of Aung San Suu Kyi, won’t even participate. So I think the election will affect the Karen in the same way that it’ll affect everyone else in Burma, in that everyone’s going to continue to get screwed.What do you think would improve the Karen situation in Burma, from governmental, civilian, and foreign standpoints?
A commission of inquiry would help, too. The Obama Administration has been carrying on the same old ineffective Burma strategy, which is sanctions, which just further impoverish an already devastatingly impoverished population. What he needs to do is replica Louis Vuitton watches push the United Nations to establish a commission of inquiry into crimes against humanity in Burma. The UK has endorsed doing so, Australia has, the Czech Republic has, and a panel of jurists writing for Harvard Law School, and several Nobel laureates. There’s an international legal obligation, and a moral obligation. Not tomention how it’s going to make UN member nations look when this story finally breaks and they’ve all just been standing around with their dcks in their hands.
Again. What have you been up to since leaving Thailand?Just replica Oris watches after I finished the book, I became the human rights reporter for Mother Jones. So I have a blog at MotherJones, and we’re always figuring out where I’m going to go next. For example, right now, I’m reporting from New Orleans on post-Katrina education and justice issues that I swear are way, way more fascinating than you would think. Plus, I’m always still blathering about the great hidden genocide of Burma to anyone who will listen to me. --Aileen Torres
