When is the rest of the world going to tell the Burmese Junta that this enough, its time to stop. The bombing of villages is absolutely unacceptable from an illegally self imposed Junta. Thailand should hang its head in shame but I guess there's a little deja vu here given Thailands current leader, remember at the last coup Prayut was going to be the caretaker for 12 months then a democratically elected leader would take over.

Spot on !! With the common denominator being illegitimacy the Thai govt are hardly in a position to protest. 

Leaving aside the complete inhumanity of using heavy artillery on what is basically a peaceful tribal community dealt a shit hand, launching a fighter jet resulting in just 2 victims surely means someone over in Burma has got more money than sense!

Yes, of course. 

All of a sudden it's consciously attentive and fashionable, even though it's been ongoing for ages. 

What does the rest of the world mean?
