More on Burma

Via Pajamas Media:

Sylvester Stallone and his film crew have escaped Burma where they were filming a new Rambo movie. Stallone reports they encountered what he describes as " ...a hellhole beyond your wildest dreams.." and were themselves brought under fire at times.


"I witnessed the aftermath - survivors with legs cut off and all kinds of land mine injuries, maggot-infested wounds and ears cut off. We saw many elephants with blown off legs. We hear about Vietnam and Cambodia and this was more horrific,'' Stallone told the Associated Press.

The families of several of his extras were imprisoned. He and his film crew have gotten several Burmese survivors (extras and such) out of the country as well. They reportedly filmed a good deal of the aftermath of the atrocities.

None of the news coming out of Burma is good....

A senior military officer who recently defected confirmed that the death toll is well into the thousands, as many suspected.

As many as 4,000 monks have been rounded up for transport "to the far north of the country".

The General in charge of the crackdown in Rangoon has been sacked....because he was too moderate in his response. (!!)

I don't think the dead monks (or Kenji Nagai ) would agree with that assessment.

The Scotsman declares the protests "smashed"...not an unreasonable assessment given the apparent lack of any meaningful external pressure. The Burmese Junta is an organ of the Chicoms. It pays them to have a client state there to apply pressure on Thailand, Indonesia and India.
