Rising up the evil stakes

Myanmar’s Government is rapidly rising up the evil stakes with its response to the cyclone. It was bad enough that it is blocking much aid from coming in, but now it seems it is stealing any good food which gets through, and letting its citizens dine out on rotten food.

Even reasonably repressive regimes such as Iran put aside politics when faced with a disaster. I recall Iran allowing search and rescue teams in after one bad earthquake.

It is Myanmar incidentally which has a NZ SOE – Kordia, helping the Government build cellphone towers. Surely this latest incident suggests it is time to put Myanmar on the blacklist.
