While we talk about bringing democracy to Iraq, we (the USA) are the ones who support evil dictators in Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Egypt, and many other places.... I am surprised these evil Burmese military junta leaders are not close friends of our State Department. Oh, I know why, there's no oil or any interest we have in Mynamar.

Tragically but not surprisingly, this week the junta of Myanmar opened fire on its own people. Myanmar, together with Iran, North Korea, and Sudan, all have one big thing in common: they are all good friends with China.
Iran and North Korea have nuclear ambitions. Myanmar and Sudan are engaged in mass slaughter. All four routinely violate human rights. Yet China has used its power and influence to shield these friends both politically and economically. As the Italians say,âTell me with whom you go, and I'll tell you what you are.â
In this new axis of evil, China seems to be the center spoke. China has proven that neither freedom nor democracyis necessary to become a world power. Rather, its unchecked success has given totalitarian dictatorships like Iran and North Korea the daring to assert their nuclear ambitions boldly, as Ahmadinejad did the other day at the UN.
The world is looking to China to exert a positive influence on the violent, dictatorial governments with which it has ties; yet violence and repression are not uncommon in China itself.âBirds of a featherâ may be trite, but it is apt. We need to wake up to the fact that China does not promote stability and peace â if anything, it encourages war.
