Demand an end to the oppression

 

Demand an end to the oppression

Dear Editor,
I wholeheartedly agree with Mark Whitman’s column, Condemned to Hell. Indeed, short of a direct invasion, there is only so much that Western countries can do to alleviate the plight of the Burmese people.
When the Foreign ministers of Singapore, India and China all say that the issues in Myanmar are an internal matter for the Burmese themselves to handle you know they are playing Pontius Pilate by washing their hands of the intimidating oppression enacted by the military junta in Naypyidaw on 48 million people.
The West should and must keep the flame of hope alive for all Burmese.
In the weeks and months ahead, we will see if any actions come from all the words spoken so far. If not, Western nations should bring the issue in front of the United Nations Security Council.... and demand immediate action. If China vetoes or dilutes this motion, then the boycott of the Chinese Olympics must become a reality.
All people on this planet, who are blessed with their daily life of freedom, should help fight this (and other) regimes bent on denying the peaceful right of expression to its citizens.
Thank You,
Michael W. Berbae
