"The junta's failing is all the more heinous for its relutctance to take in all offers of aid from foreign governments and relief organisations. This is a crime agaisnt the people."
- from an Editorial in The Straights Times
I should note here that Singapore has historically had a fairly cozy relationship with Buma, conducting a significant amount of trade with Myanmar. Also, editorials published in the Straights Times seldom diverge significantly from position of the government of Singapore. Thus, this is a harsh rebuke of the junta from a friendly country.
