Patrick Worsnip reported today that:
Myanmar’s junta agreed on Friday to admit foreign aid workers of all nationalities to the delta area worst hit by Cyclone Nargis, in what the U.N. called a breakthrough for aiding survivors
Western disaster experts, largely kept out of the Irrawaddy Delta and restricted to the former capital Yangon, welcomed the news but wanted more details on the deal struck by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and junta supremo Than Shwe.
The U.N. chief said he hoped the agreement “can produce results quickly. Implementation is the key.”
Junta Supremo Than Shwe is still refusing to let French and US Ships full of Aid to dock.
Let us hope that this is a breakthrough and help will get in and in soon!!
It is sinful and wrong;
words can not describe what is happening in Burma.
About 78,000 people have died and another 56,000 are missing Yet this group of people who are called the Junta are stopping aid getting in to Burma. Not only are they stopping Aid getting in they are also trying to say all is OK what a LIE. Do not forget last year one family from this Junta spent 24 Million Pounds on his daughters wedding!!
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has toured Burma’s cyclone-hit Irrawaddy Delta, and called on the military government to accept more foreign aid.
Mr. Ban, the only foreign leader to visit the area, said he was “very upset” by the devastation he had seen
Mr. Ban was taken on a four-hour helicopter trip over Burma’s flooded rice plain.
The BBC’s Laura Trevelyan, who is travelling with him, said the aircraft touched down at a tidy camp with few people in it and brand new tents – some of which were empty!!!!!!!!!!
A UN official privately called it a “show camp”
This Junta needs to be told
“Open up your Country or we will force you to” but more than that, if they do not comply with World Concern then use force to save these people. They need help and help now.
It’s all in the database.

What is the World coming to! Who in their right mind would send a child of 8 strapped with explosives out to kill.
“An eight-year-old girl strapped with explosives has blown up and killed an Iraqi army captain”
The bomb was detonated by remote control, injuring four soldiers in addition to the one who died, an Iraqi Army spokesman said.
Al Qaeda are said to be responsible for the attack
So I say again..
“Who in their right mind would send a child of 8 strapped with explosives out to kill”
