The military junta in Myanmar has finally agreed to allow in relief workers into the cyclone ravaged country regardless of their nationality. It's about bloody time. Of course, they didn't say when they would be allowed in. It's not like they are in any hurry. I mean what's 134,000 deaths to them? I'm no fan of the UN but I must give Secretary General Ban ki-Moon kudos for keeping up the pressure on the military regime. Still, it's nearly three weeks late and billions of dollars short.
