If the Burmese Military is receiving tax payer dollars and engaging in gross human rights violations, than it would be appropriate to make continued aid conditional to assurances that our aid is not being used to support those human rights violations. It would be a much stronger case if we engaged allied members of the world community to endorse and support this and other more ‘punitive’ sanctions. We need to be team players in the world community for actions such as these and in addressing global concerns. We should not be the enforcer that simply bullies other nations into submission because we can. Too much hate, too much distrust, too much lack of trust if we alone prescribe what is ‘right’ for the world.
