Reference: Bush urges Burma to accept US teams, Bangkok Post, May 7, 2008

One can only hope that the junta in Burma was paying attention when the US Navy had worked its magic to save the people of Bangladesh after cyclone Sidr had devastated that country and that they will respond quickly and positively to the generous American offer of assistance in Burma's time of need. The failure of the junta to respond quickly and adequately to the disaster may bring them down just as the cyclone of 1970 had brought down the Yahya Khan military regime in Pakistan.
