And now to be serious (Myanmar)

The Rude Pundit makes a case for the actions of Myanmar's ruling junta post-cyclone being genocide -- the alleged hoarding of food and aid, the blocking of aid flights, chasing down the media to attempt to shut down the story -- and adds that A) the situation may actually call out for a U.N./U.S. armed intervention and B) such an intervention likely wouldn't be possible. Profanity included.

The most similar thought I had while watching the news of the disaster that's followed the cyclone's devastation is "This could end up as bad as the tsunami death toll. Fewer people for the Myanmar junta to rule."
