Burma’s “new” government

The Burmese generals held an “election”. The “new” government has announced it’s first budget. Among other striking and interesting proposals:

  • Military spending 23%
  • Medicine and health care 1.3%

This is “democracy” by the military producing government of the people by the military and for the military.
