The nation of Myanmar seems like a band of tyrants and military hoodlums. Granted? Yet why not call them Myanmar instead of the colonial Burma in order to expedite aid too the cyclone ravaged country? I must admit that my knowledge of the politics in this unfortunate country is seriously lacking. But getting aid in seems like the most necessary thing right now. The colonial powers Britain and the US with their media flacks, insist on calling them Burma because they say they are usurpers, tyrants et al. The Myranmarese hoodlums resent this.

The powerful can and should come down in order to aid and alleviate the situation. We can worry about nomenclature later.
