Burmese Bloggers Being Hunted

The news from Burma (renamed Myanmar by its brutal oppressors) is serious. Not only have protestors (including peaceful monks) been gunned down, but now the Junta is going after bloggers. I had heard about this from someone else, but Blue Crab Boulevard has the goods.

It's tempting to joke that groups like Media Matters and MoveOn would like to do the same to conservative bloggers, but the situation is too grave for that.

Sandra Carney has written a series of articles on the situation in Burma for Family Security Matters. She was born and raised there, so it's obviously a very distressing time for her. Her archived articles can be found here, with the most recent articles at the top. Be sure to check them out.

The Burmese bloggers are responsible for many of the images getting out of Burma, and it's quite obvious why they are now being targeted for death themselves. Reuters has a slideshow here, and more images are here. WARNING: graphic photos, especially on the second link. Don't click if you are at all squeamish.

Pray for the people of Burma, and pray that other civilized countries (including ours) will try to do something about their plight.

Jeez, I wish there were a country that tried to protect the lives of innocent people looking for freedom. Hmm . . . what country could possibly come to another's aid?

Libs don't seem to care about this too much, do they? It's not glamorous to care about Burma... George Clooney didn't mention it at an awards dinner like he did with Darfur.

Excellent point, HH. Where's George when we need him?

There is something to be said for the right to bear arms ... an unarmed population is easier to murder.
It's like shooting fish in a barrel... literally.
