But Wldf*ck has made some very good points. He has to at least be recognised for that much.

I think I will make some additions to the urban dictionary. Somebody has to invent those words dont they.

Quoting Mel.

But Wldf*ck has made some very good points. He has to at least be recognised for that much.:

Wldk's points are ideological bollocks if he maintains that going to Myanmar is encouraging a brutal military regime but criticism about Castro's murderous communist regime is 'right-wing dogma'. I've been to both and my original post stands - ideological/theocratic dictatorship is much worse than simple military bastardism cause it illegitemately rests on some sacred text (Das Kapital or Koran).
Isn't it curious that the well known political sycophants of El Jefe love to go there to show solidarity (and be feted) for the great socialist future of humanity but wouldn't live there in a fit. Contact Harold Pinter or Johnnie Pilger and ask those grovellers to tyranny if they will put their hands in their pockets to rehabilitate Cuba from it's crumbing state (don't blame the US for that, the USSR was a social, cultural, economic and ecological wasteland without any economic embargo from the West and in 1990 it had the economic clout of Belgium).
Cuba lurves US dolares as much as the Myanmar bastards do.
Different rottweillers, same leg action

Anyway, the thread is about Myanmar and my suggestion is - Go Go Go before you hit the retirement home, cause it will be a very long wait before the rectums collapse.

I doubt he thinks going to Burma is encouraging the evil regime. Nobody thinks that, do they? If it was as simple as that this thread would not exist. If we could discourage the Junta and thus cause them to step down we would all not got to Burma. Of course when people think from this angle they will come to the conclusion that it is useless for us to not go to Burma. The question is more like should we show our respect and support for Aung San Suu Kyi and the democratic movement by not going to Burma. Not going to Burma is more an emotional way to demonstrate to the world our committment to the ideology of democracy and our wish for Burma to have it. The democratic movement asked us to do this to show our support for them. They did not ask us to come to Burma with a smile on our faces to show them that they are not alone.
I suppose a decision to not go to Burma is a very personal thing for all who choose it. Going to Burma may also be based on personal feelings or it can be just carelessness. Many are careless of the democracies they live in and careless of the lack of democracy in other countries.

Ideological eh?

You wouldn't recognise ideology if it kicked you in the bollocks...let alone a crumbling state.....the only example of which is evident on this thread is your state of mind.

I'll kill that bastard doctor when I go for my next appointment.
No-one, and I mean no-one, was to be told about the crumbling state of my bollocks and my John Wayne ideals which hang by a thread after the perspicacity of your response.
