China Set The Example For Myanmar

China finally accepted some foreign rescue teams to their earthquake rescue effort.  China now accepted Japan’s rescue team, Taiwan’s team.  These are the only 2 countries where experts have been allowed to aid the relief effort.  All other countries’ aids are material assistance.  UK, Poland, Russia, Saudi are among the donors list.  However, the name US has not been surfaced.  China also appealed, for the first time, for “earth-moving equipment” according shanghaiist.com.

Myanmar is having a hard time with the cyclone as well.  The death toll is also in the magnitude of tens of thousands.  Myanmar has not been accepting foreign rescue teams either, in fear of conspiracies.  Myanmar has strong ties with China especially because it has very little foreign trade.  Now that China is accepting foreign experts to assist, will Myanmar allow some foreign experts?  Can Myanmar allow the same countries that China accepted? 

Since China accepts foreign aid, one can donate to US Red Cross’ China earthquake dedicated fund (see below).  And Red Cross cannot even establish a dedicated fund for it.  Unicef has a dedicated fund (see below).

 

What if no aid was provided to Myanmar?  Is that what the Myanmar junta wants?  Myanmar junta may have gotten the wrong side of conspiracy.  It is the scenario of no-aid that they should fear.  The case of no-aid means no country wants to do Myanmar any favours; no country wants Myanmar to return any favours; no country sees any values of Myanmar.  The worse is all these countries want the populace to suffer enough to revolt, much like intent of any boycott, the Iraqi case prior to the Gulf War 2.  The worst is action is already taken, but Myanmar junta does not even know.  When foreign experts come, Myanmar can control the quantity of the experts, the nationalities of the experts, can control the area of exposure, can monitor their movements and can know what these foreign experts know.  There is nothing more available than knowing what your opponents know and do not know.   

 

If China can accept Taiwan’s experts, can Myanmar accept Thailand’s civilian experts of Buddhist religion?
