Yangon or bust

The Myanmar/Burmese military junta is getting on my nerves. Firstly, I think they are a bunch of idiots. Secondly, they will go down in history as complicit murderers of their own people if they don't get their act together and start allowing the international aid to reach the stricken victims of Cyclone Nargis.

I'm not sure how to pray for the situation. Should I pray for a change of heart among the paranoid ruling generals? Or should I pray for a change of heart of President George Bush so that he will order a covert operation against the junta? Send in a couple of squadrons of special forces to take out the junta, reopen the airport and ports, and deploy a massive airdrop of supplies to the isolated villages. Piece of cake for the mighty U.S. of A.... if only they wanted to. They did it in Iraq -- liberty and justice for oil. They can do it in Myanmar too -- liberty and justice for all.

I think I'll just pray for the first scenario.

No kings, or rulers or any authorities can stand in the way of His plan. Let's pray for the believers, a city on a hill cannot be hidden, may they shine forth. some of the ministry-based orphanages became shelters to those in need, i'm so glad to hear this. Things will be shaken, people will be shaken. Isaiah 43:2

Funny you should mention the "invade Myanmar" option...coz your not the only one thinking like that. There is an article on Time magazine on Saturday asking for the same thing, so that the US army can unilaterally carry out air drops of essential supplies without the hinderance of the Myanmar govt.
