Russia and China

Both oppose even strongly worded criticism of Burma in the UN, relying on cold-war blather about 'sovreignty'. Wonder why it is that the governments with even less legitimacy than Bush during his first term of office would rather ordinary people suffer than a bunch of kleptocratic generals are packed off to an exile well-funded by their criminal exploits and no doubt securely stashed in Swiss bank accounts? Perhaps because they could be next-door neighbours soon?

Certainly they can't in any way go back to justifying their attitude as "anti-imperialist", what is Than Shwe's clique other than a mere proxy for China, Russia, India, France and others to plunder Burma's natural wealth and use it's people for forced labour (while getting their own substantial rake-off)?
