Those who have visited Myanmar know that many people there are quite happy with their lives, and they do not need American corporations ruling their country. It was such a pleasure to travel through a country without McDonald's restaurants at every corner :)

Are they?

Should no one go to Myanmar and encourage the regime to reform?

I think someone should.

As they reform, will that provide an opportunity for the people of Myanmar to be exploited by American companies who do not hold human rights, workers rights, or the environment in high esteem?

Yes it will. It will provide that opening.

I say that to sit silent on the sidelines while the people of Myanmar suffer is not an option. I say we must change the rules of how business is done, rather than sit and do nothing.

That's such horse shit - you cannot equate Libya with Viet Nam. That's ridiculous.

Does it create the opportunity for exploitation by U.S. corporations? YES!

Is that an improvement over mass murder? HELL YES!!

That is no excuse for corporate exploitation - that's not what I'm saying.

what I am saying is open your fucking eyes.

The word "reform" is vague. It often means marketization and austerity.
