Front Page: Army Stealing Aid in Myanmar, Bombings in Iraq and Afghanistan, Farm Bill Passes

  • Army Stealing Aid in Myanmar: Officials from several relief organizations say that the international aid being sent into Myanmar is being "stolen, diverted or warehoused" by the army. The members of the military junta told Thailand's prime minister they were in control of the relief operations and had no need for foreign experts. UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon wants to send a senior UN official to inspect the relief effort in the ravaged country. To make matters worse, the US military’s Joint Typhoon Warning Center said there was a possibility that “a significant tropical cyclone” — another one — would form in the next 24 hours and head across the Irrawaddy Delta, the already hardest hit region.
  • Bombings in Iraq and Afghanistan: In an attack claimed by the Taliban, a suicide bomber wearing a burqa detonated by a police patrol at a crowded market in western Afghanistan today, killing at least 12 people and wounding 27 others, officials said. Yesterday, at least 20 people were killed and 35 others wounded in a suicide bombing at a Sunni funeral west of Baghdad. Police said the funeral was for the head teacher of a local school. The bombings occurred hours the announcement that Prime Minister Nouri Maliki was supervising an offensive against Sunni insurgents in the northern city of Mosul.
  • House Passes Farm Bill: The House approved a five-year, $307 billion farm bill with a solid bipartisan majority yesterday. Despite a veto threat from President Bush, the House voted 318 to 106 — more than the two-thirds needed to override a presidential veto — with 100 Republicans joining the Democratic majority in favor.

Myanmar is afraid that a taste of freedom might upset the junta's control over their Nation. It probably would. If they can handle it, they can handle it. Sometimes you have to let a Nation fall to the bottom of the cellar. If another cyclone hits, maybe then the junta will soften its stance. If not, all the rest of the world can do is stand ready to help. Too bad Osama bin Laden wasn't under the burkha when the suicide bomb was detonated. Maybe next time. It's said that he wears a burkha to move around Afghanistan to check on his war. One day he's going to forget to use the falsetto voice and will be caught --- in women's underwear!!! Farm Bill -- at least there's ONE item Congress completed this term.

So true, Stiletta. Ugh, I know this is a bit wrong, but when I first heard about the Cyclone in Myanmar, I couldn't help but hope that most of the military junta had been wiped out :/

The hate one must possess to bomb a funeral is beyond my comprehension.
