Your friends in Burma

From Amir:  ""The use of jet aircraft and attack helicopters to bomb, rocket and strafe the Kachin is now at the highest intensity since the Burma military began its attacks against the Kachin last year. Over 100,000 Kachin are now displaced, towns and villages have been destroyed and they are in need of security, food, shelter and clothing."   "The Burmese army has claimed responsibility for several targeted air strikes in northern Burma, less than a day after the government denied using jet fighters and attack helicopters against Kachin rebels."
