Deals with the Devil

The Myanmar junta has brought the uprising of it’s people mostly under the control of their brutal riot police,┬áit seems. There are some demonstrations going on, but information is scarce. A dear price has been paid by scores of buddhist monks and Burmese civilians. The International community failed even to condem the regime’s brutal attacks against its citizens. “The Guardian” takes a look behind the scenes and informs us about the reasons of China’s aid to the Generals.

But it’s not only the Chines who are dealing with the devil. The French, namely the oil/energy company “Total” are busily doing business with the generals. President Sarkozy has hypocritically asked French companies to freeze new investments, fully aware of the fact, that only Total is working in Myanmar and doesn’t plan any new investments anyway.
