Myanmar: Arming the Junta

Yangon Thu is urging Myanmar's neighbours to stop arming the ruling Junta. “The Burmese junta doesn’t need anymore carrots. They need sticks and they need to be beaten with it. OK, if you aren't going to beat them, at least could you starve them? A little? I mean, most of the rich generals in power are so fat anyway, they will thank you for lowering their cholesterol.”
