Burma: Cyclone Victims told "Eat Frogs"!
Barry Artiste, Now Public Contributor
The military Junta relocating cyclone victims out of their refugee camps and sending them back to their devastated villages, further adds insult to injury by telling the weak and hungry to live off the fat of the land.
A land on a severe diet of mud and rock in which the cyclone killed not only people, but trees, buildings etc.
One wonders why the world allows this military junta to exist.
It is pretty clear why the Junta want the victims to live on frogs and not aid, is because the choice aid supplies are in the hands of the Junta who gorge themselves while their people starve.
Burma cyclone: Junta tells victims to eat frogs
The Burmese government has lashed out at international aid, saying that starving cyclone survivors can live on frogs and fish instead of foreign handouts.Meanwhile camps of survivors are being forcibly cleared by the army and the people trucked back to their villages, without the supplies they need to survive.
According to newspaper New Light of Myanmar, a government mouthpiece: "The people (of the Irrawaddy delta) can survive with self-reliant efforts even if they are not given chocolate bars from (the) international community.
"Myanmar people can easily get fish for dishes by just fishing in the fields and ditches. In the early monsoon, large edible frogs are abundant."
