please tell me you were joking there, Shin. And if you were, it wasn't funny. At all. And if you weren't- what the hell is wrong with you? You can't actually believe that- its not only evil but insane, people are people and politicians are politicians, and although it is true that politicians are people, it is not true that they are always accurate representations of the people of their country. Shit man- please tell me that was a very tasteless, unfunny joke.

If I'd have known this message would cause such a "forum riot" I would have not even posted that news about a possible war in Iran. Shintaro man, I second Pashy's sentiments: I hope you were joking, but that joke was not funny at all. You were talking about ethnic cleansing, one of the most harsh crimes any regime can ever commit.

point of order: i move that any further discussion of the above matter be carried out in pm's.

second motion:
Image
men like this have been arrested and imprisoned in Myanmar (Burma) this week.
it's a long and complicated story, but it ends with a militaristic regieme and how simple honest people suffer to put it to an end.
go to youtube and see if they still have the video of the japanese journalist being gunned down in the street. (be warned, the clip i caught was enough for me to sense bile :( :( )
the whole situation is under the UN microscope (and if you are anti-UN, you should realize that the situation is under the microscope of virtually every globally-aware nation).
i think it was friday when Myanmar cut off all cellular and internet access to/from the country. <--stop and think about how YOU would react to that.
i know that sometimes my attention is too attracted by things of this nature, but the cool thing is that it results in awareness of people like <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aung_San_Suu_Kyi" target="_blank">this</a> who seem to be among the ranks of MLK Jr and Gandhi;
which is to say,
i like hanging out with these peeps :D

if you have anything extra, please wish it to those monks because they're just trying to do what's best for their people.

Namaste!

from the BBC website:
<!--quoteo--><div class='quotetop'>QUOTE</div><div class='quotemain'><!--quotec-->About 4,000 monks have been rounded up in the past week as the military government has tried to stamp out pro-democracy protests.

They are being held at a disused race course and a technical college.

Sources from a government-sponsored militia said they would soon be moved away from Rangoon.

The monks have been disrobed and shackled, the sources told BBC radio's Burmese service. There are reports that the monks are refusing to eat.
<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->

[edit #1]:
to say the monks have been "rounded up" is a sick euphamism:
Image
:(

[edit #2]:
heavens, i just can't leave this topic alone :blink:
<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kenji_Nagai" target="_blank">Kenji Nagai</a> was the first international casualty.

apparently a 50 year old journalist is a threat, eh?


hell, this whole situation is FUBAR'd.

the wikipedia article on this event says military forces loaded their fire engines with pesticide, villagers have been forced to appear as monks in support of the military regime at staged protests, at one monastery the monks were forced at gunpoint outside while their heads were smashed on stone walls while hundreds of citizens were prevented from helping, some sources estimate the dead in the thousands, and the internet has been crucial to this event in more ways that one.

i guess the PM of Maynmar died either today or yesterday from Leukemia. who's next there?
also, key people from the military dictatorship have defected and are seeking asylum in Europe.

hopefully China will "lean" on the Maynmar Big Brother more and more to get this under control.
this is a weird living history lesson to learn :ph34r:
