Why do I call it Burma and not Myanmar?
Burma was renamed by the still ruling military junta after they used a bloody coup to take power in 1989. Up until this present administration the Unites States officially called this country Burma. Because of their continuing oppression I stand with the Burmese who resist this inhumane leadership and retain my choice of an historic name for the country, Burma.
