It’s Burma

President Obama took a break from flirting with Thai Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra to refer to Burma as Myanmar.

Mr. President, the nation is Burma.  Myanmar is the name used by the tyrannical junta that controls the nation.  Myanmar is a land of human trafficking, human rights abuses, systematic rape, child labor, slavery, torture, fear and repression.  Burma is the beautiful land that is home to 60 million people suffering daily under the boot heel of evil.

With the election over it seems Mr. Obama has fallen back into the habit of bowing to tyrants.

It is disgusting.

As a side note, my favorite book about Burma is the very readable Finding George Orwell in Burma.  I recommend it.  Of course, you should read this too.
