Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice. . .

You may have noticed the headlines:

UN chief: Myanmar opening up to aid
Myanmar leader agrees to allow aid workers

Getting your aid workers into Myanmar is not even half the battle, as international relief teams have been telling us for over a week. Is this new supposed "deal" a genuine breakthrough? CNN reports:

Details of the decision were not immediately clear, though a government official familiar with the decision said Myanmar will not allow foreign boats or helicopters into the country.
Any deal that did not discuss "boats or helicopters" is a sham -- a complete and utter disgrace. Worse, it's a mere propaganda ploy by the junta. Because without boats or helicopters, you cannot reach the victims.
