Liberals Stop McCain from Aiding Myanmar

with 3 comments

With disaster relief supplies unable to get in, things look bad for millions in Myanmar.  The problem is the repressive military dictatorship that controls the country is refusing to let much foreign assisstance in and is even stealing supplies.

“We want to do this in a collaborative, cooperative way with the authorities in Burma,” said Mark Malloch-Brown, the British minister for Africa, Asia and the United Nations.

But he stressed “a lot of lives are at risk.”

“The international community cannot take ‘no’ for an answer,” he said here Thursday. “It’s a race against time, and we are not racheting up fast enough.”

Options available to foreign powers include unauthorized airdrops, coastal landings or helicopter operations. But considering the junta’s current stance, any such moves could potentially spark a military incident.  If only there was a world leader with the forethought and expertise to save the people…There is.  His name is John McCain.

Fortunately, for the suffering masses John McCain has connections with Myanmar.  Among the League of Lobbyists McCain has employed to run his campaign were two men who served as lobbyists for the government of Myanmar.  With that inside connection he could talk with the brutal military regime and open up the country to aid.  Unfortunately, it isn’t to be.  Liberals in this country were so outraged that some of McCain’s people worked for Myanmar that he was forced to let them go.  Now McCain finds himself as unable to help as everybody else.  I hope that the Dums learn their lesson because our next crisis may require the McCain campaign’s lobbying ties to Vladimir Putin, the Saudis, or Bangladesh

  1. He could make a phone call. I’m sure those lobbyists who stepped down are still his friends. They probably just didn’t think about what a help they could be.

  2. I just don’t think when you’re an employer and you’ve fired somebody you want to go and ask them for favors.
