Via Agto, Laura Bush opens her big mouth about Burma:

“Although they were aware of the threat, Burma’s state-run media failed to issue a timely warning to citizens in the storm’s path.” 

“It’s troubling that many of the Burmese people learned of this impending disaster only when foreign outlets, such as Radio Free Asia and Voice of America, sounded the alarm,” she said.

Asked by a reporter whether she was accusing the junta of having “blood on their hands,” she said it was clear they are “very inept.”

As opposed to her own husband’s administration, which issued an order to evacuate New Orleans after all the mass transportation had been closed, and her own husband, who only learned of the ongoing disaster when aides forced him to watch TV clips.  

And now Time has its own breathtakingly stupid suggestion: invade Burma.  Because nothing improves a natural disaster more than adding a war on top of it.
