What happens in Burma?

Here is a link for the recent demonstrations and killings in Burma. We had a jounta here and we know how it feels to be terrified by the governments.

How can earth be such a horrifying place;
How can men be such monsters;

Really, I'm wondering these last days, how can anybody deal with so many situations in this world...

With the enviromental catastrophy on earth,With the neverending killings on Middle East; With the massacres in states of Africa; and all this unjustice and inhuman stories of this planet. And now this...

And we have this absurd circus which is called Organisation of United Nations to believe in. Today I read in the newspapers that China's opinion will prevail in United Nations and China is favourable to the jounta in Mianmar...

the thing is that it was always like this. You just have access to information u did not have before. And you live in the present so that your personal actual experience is no comparable to a never realised previous one. So you turn the information you get to an experience, one that was never lived by you. Reality, however, is much more complex. you are right but not exact in saying that China is in favour of Mianmar. Some Chinese officials are very concerned by what happens and they look forward for regime change in Mianmar. What ,then, is a regime change? Is it a Iraq-style delibaration war? Is it a total foreign trade embargo and who is benefited from this?
