A Big Mistake in the Making

According to a Washington Times report, President Obama is preparing to meet with members of the junta military regime currently ruling Burma (known locally as Myanmar), a stark departure from decades of American policy. To say that this a surprising move is sever understatement, not just because of the sea change (after all, it wouldn't be the first sea change of this administration), but this move would have consequences far beyond mere diplomatic ones. To put it simply, beginning a dialogue with this regime may carry with it disastrous national security implications.

The Left is comprised of extremely dangerous mental retards. Obama is a leader within the Leftistsphere.

So where are the men in white coats when we need them?

Obama has never met an anti-American dictator he didn’t like, or a real American he liked.

The Burmese/Myanmar military will gut people for amusement. Remember, they prevented assistance from going to 100s of thousands of their own people after the typhoon.

Correct. And he especially likes the communists ones... What a surprise, considering all the major intellectual influences on his formative years were... you guessed it, commies.

There are nearly 4 million Burmese refugees in neighboring Thailand. Burmese refugees are popping up all over the U.S. these days.

This regime starved to death over 100,000 ethnic minorities in the aftermath of the Boxing Day tsunami.

International food aid was delivered to the junta, the junta then resold it on the open market, meaning 200,000 penniless peasants were left to starve to death while the actual men Obama will sit down to speak with collected profits on the USAID packages while their serf class starved to death.

How can any democratically elected politician sit down with such animals?
