Don't Turn Burma Into Another Zimbabwe

The Fascist/Socialist Burmese regime is one of the most repressive on the planet and NZ firms should most certainly not be trading with it.
However, anyone campaigning for a better Burma, should be damn' careful not to give aid or succour to the Marxist-Leninist forces that are unfortunately the backbone of the misleadingly named "democracy" movement.
Burma's 50 million people deserve better than to be pushed from the frying pan into the fire.
Don't let the left do to Burma what they did to Zimbabwe.
