Location, Location, Location.

Apparently, US disaster-relief resources are situated closer to Burma than Louisiana.

President Bush called on Myanmar's military junta to allow the United States to help with disaster assistance, saying the U.S. already has provided some assistance but wants to do more.

Wow. The cyclone was Sunday. What do we have to do to rate the same treatement as a fucking military dictatorship that just finished with a brutal repression of its own people?

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for sending the Burmese whatever help they need. Just wondering why the double standard?
