I feel sorry for my poor neighbouring country Myanmar...... The ruling military junta has refused to release the pro democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi, even though her party swept the national elections way back in 1990.

Myanmar is not so lucky as the Middle East countries to have reserves of oil, else the US, the champion of worldwide democratic rights would have rushed forward to uphold democracy and also have a control on the oil resources

The US is also not in many african countries where things are as worse. I think that is has nothing to do with compassion to the locals. But i see it from both sides. Because the west has its interests in these areas. and the USA (with the support of Europe) needs to do this to keep the west running. the west is addicted to oil. we just plain need it!!! i am the last to deny that. but at the other hand i also understand the "invaded" countries. No country would like to be controlled by a foreign power.

I understand the anxiety about oil, it is hightime the world thinks of some alternative energy source else we are in for more problems in the days to come

Mmmm.
What cracks me up about Australia's whining civil libertarians and dhimmi multiculturalists is their crass hypocrisy.
One week our so-called intellectual academics and media pundits (most of them my age or slightly older with too much LSD under the bonce) screech their 70's anti-american slogans like capitalist, imperialist, hegemonist (sfunny, most Yanks I've met are far more hedged-moneyists), unilateralists, despoilers of sovereign rights, uncultured, ignorant, blah, blah, fecking blah.
Then the next week these hippoid throwbacks screech at the USA for not sending the First Marine Division to Darfur or Rwanda or Liberia or Sierra Leone or Ivory Coast to stop mass murder and genocide.
They don't know if they're Arthur or Martha
Thankfully the vast majority of Ozzies view them as something you scrape off your boot.
