(FiveNation.com)- United States Secretary of State Antony Blinked condemned the attacks by the Myanmar military that took place last month, killing at least 35 innocent people. Among those killed in the attack were Save the Children staff, children, and women.
The far-left Secretary of State said that he was “alarmed by the military regime’s brutality” – which is something most people would agree with, but leaves you wondering whether this guy really expected something different. After all, the Myanmar government is only legitimate in the sense that it has control – it was literally formed via a military coup in February.
Blinken called on the international community to end all arms sales to the country, as well as the sale of dual use technology to the country’s military.
“The targeting of innocent people and humanitarian actors is unacceptable, and the military’s widespread atrocities against the people of Burma underscore the urgency of holding its members accountable,” Blinken continued.
Ned Price, a spokesman for the State Department, also called for a “New Year’s cease fire” throughout the country.
Last Tuesday, Save the Children confirmed that two members of their staff were among those found dead. On December 24, the Myanmar military committed the attack, leaving dozens of bodies lay dead and burned. The identity of the two members of staff have been kept anonymous, but one was identified as a 32-year-old with a 10-month-old son. The other was aged 28 and had a three-month-old daughter.
