Myanmar approves new constitution while it reels – Yahoo! News

YANGON, Myanmar – Myanmar’s junta announced Thursday that a pro-military constitution has won overwhelming support in a referendum, which was held despite widespread criticism and in the midst of a national tragedy ā€” a devastating cyclone that the Red Cross says may have killed more than 125,000 people.

State radio said the draft constitution, which critics dismissed as a sham document designed to entrench the military’s rule, was approved by 92.4 percent of the 22 million eligible voters. It put voter turnout at more than 99 percent.

And if you believe that, they have some waterfront property you might be interested in, as well.

Those people are still dragging their feet on cooperating with relief efforts, and are diverting relief supplies to their own purposes. They are EVIL — that’s the only word that fits.
