Thanks for your comments and post. The condition is intolerable and reprehensible and an offense against humanity. But the reality is that both Russia and China being permanent members of the UN Security Council have direct complicity that has allowed this state to exist untouched in it's tyranny for 4 decades. Russia sells advanced Armaments to Myanmar and has refused in the past to allow sanctions, the same for China who is an active partner in Energy exploitation of that country, both have regularly used their Veto power to negate progress if it effects their own desired ambitions of power in that Nation. China today made the comments that it is too early to make any decision in regard to any UN action. Being a realist I personally do not have a lot of confidence in sudden change there.
