The World Bank refuses to help Myanmar

According the The Voice of America news website, the World Bank is refusing to give loans to Myanmar because the military government hasn’t paid any outstanding debts since 1998.  Once again the greedy and incompetent junta that runs that country are causing damage to their people at a time when they can no longer afford to be damaged.

I am seriously afraid that within five years, the next time Myanmar will be in the news is when a lot of people are massacred during an uprising.  Either the generals will all be killed by angry mobs or the military will kill protesters in the streets.
