Support the Oppressed IDPs in Burma sign now

The current foreign policy of the United States regarding Burma is inadequate, does not effectively support the democratic ideals of the United States of America, allows unchecked atrocities and crimes against humanity to be perpetuated against many millions of oppressed people in Burma, poses ongoing, significant future risks to human life and tolerates gross injustices that have continued unabated for over 60 years against former allies of the United States of America. Further, the prospect of continued long-term actions by the military regime, consistent with current and past behavior regarding opium and amphetamine production, publicly known attempts to gain access to nuclear technology and rampant environmental destruction represent a clear and present danger to regional and international security for United States and other nations interests, domestically and abroad.

The foreign policy of the United States government toward Burma and the dictators who control the country; brutalize, attack and drive out its ethnic people; suppress and exploit all who live in Burma; derive 80\% of their economy from the production and exportation of illegal drugs; and who are destroying the countrys natural resources and environment should:

Be broadened, expanded and enhanced to provide proper support to all of the 1 million plus displaced ethnic people in Burma.

Legitimize the ethnic groups political parties and other organizations.

Strengthen the ability of these organizations to resist the military regime.

Engage and lead the international community to bring about an immediate end to the regimes rule and control over Burma, by whatever means are necessary, to include just punishment for the damage they have done and the crimes against humanity that have been perpetrated against its people.

The conflict in Burma is the longest running on the globe and despite the fact that it has resulted in the death and displacement of over 3 million people, the destruction of a country and the burning and devastation of over 3000 ethnic communities in the last 10 years, it has never received the attention of the United States, the EU or the rest of the international community that it deserves. It is time to do justice that is long overdue. The United States must stand for humanity in Burma now and also stand with its ethnic people who have been loyal, faithful allies since World War II. It is time do what is right and called for in this policy paper, which outlines the recommended and necessary foreign policy changes this administration must undertake regarding U.S./Burma relations in order to help the ethnic people of Burma, put a stop to the killing, hold accountable those responsible for thousands of human rights abuses and to restore the democracy that was stolen from all the Burmese people and their country by the military regime/dictatorship that is still in power today. To do anything less would be a travesty and a gross moral failing of the American spirit, as we have come to know and cherish it over the past 234 years.

Please join me in signing this petition to support a U.S. foreign policy toward Burma that eliminates the oppressive military regime and ends the ongoing atrocities.
