Bush to speak about Burma

On Wednesday, Thursday 7th (Wed 6th in the USA), George Bush will be visiting Thailand, as well as celebrating 175 years of Thai/US relations, he also gets to lunch with “Burmese activists” in Bangkok. After that he will (according to the Market Watch report of a Press Briefing by Senior Director for Asian Affairs at the National Security Council, Dennis Wilder) “be interviewed by the press in Thailand that broadcast into Burma, so that he can give a message directly to the Burmese people.”

Meanwhile Mrs Bush will visit Mae La refugee camp and Dr Cynthia’s clinic.

The refugee camp Mrs Bush will visit

The Bush visit to Asia continues in China. China is one of the Burmese military junta’s few enthusiastic supporters. So I guess we can pray that this visit may bring significant real hope to the Karen and other Burmese ethnic groups suffering attacks by Burmese military forces.
