END THE GENOCIDE IN BURMA
When a government willfully allows its peopole to die because of either direct action or inaction, that is genocide.
When will the people of the world learn the lesson that dictatorial regimes that wantonly kill is not acceptable? We failed to hear the message of the Holocost; we failed to hear the cries in Africa; we failed to hear the cries in Serbia, Cambodia, Sudan and now we fail to hear the cries in Burma. What happens when there is no one left to cry?
Humanity is not indestructable. Failing to take responsibility for our future means that other forces will do it for us - the picture is not a pretty one. Who cares about the Burmese junta? Who cares if they do not want aid workers? What will they do if the world helps despite their protest? It is not like they are a superpower. Will China really step in to aid the Burmese government and come down on the side of letting hundreds of thousands die just before the start of the Olympics?
The leaders of the world should hang their heads in shame at their inaction, their lack of courage, their lack of humanity. Their are those who predict that 2012 will be a time of reckoning. Their are those who see 2012 as a moment of Great Awakening. The decisions the world makes now will determine the outcome. We sow our seeds and at the moment, the harvest looks bleak!
