Violence covereth them as a garment

I find it impossible to read about Burma without thinking of Psalm 73.

Some have alleged the military government is hoarding international food aid that is arriving and giving out spoiled and poor-quality food instead.

UN spokeswoman Michele Montas said Secretary General Ban Ki-moon had expressed concern that aid was being diverted to non-cyclone victims.

Montas said so far there was no evidence. But Brian Agland, CARE Australia's country director in Burma, said some of his local staff have samples of the rotting rice being distributed in the Irrawaddy delta.

Meanwhile, apparently air drops won't work very well. And a UN humanitarian invasion is out of the question, apparently. So we're left with . . . watching evil triumph.
