oh. my. god

Now I see there's talk of INVADING Myanmar to deliver supplies. "We had to destroy the town in order to save it." Wasn't that the old Vietnam rubric? And we've shown ourselves to be so delicate and so careful about invasion--is that the foundation of this "humanitarian" impulse? Aren't they even ashamed to use the word (any words--invasion, humanitarian, como sea)? Believe me, whatever the Burmese are suffering now, they ain't seen nothing yet if we invade. Gosh. The arrogance. Words fail me.
