U.S. Navy vessels carrying tons of relief supplies for the suffering victims of last month’s Myanmar cyclone turned back around this week, without unloading their cargo. Although the United Nations has stated that a million survivors still don’t have adequate food or shelter, the ruling junta refuses to allow entry for fear that the Americans will bum rush the troubled country for its rich oil deposits.
And so the victims continue to suffer without the mobilized assistance.
We have to say, we’re more than embarrassed that our country’s pathetic reputation as oil hoarders makes for a plausible assumption that we’d do just about anything to get our hands on the grease.
Do we all seem this bad?
