Don't Forget Burma

It seemed like for a while, everyone was agreeing that "we've gotta do something about Burma" and bloggers were posting, especially in early October. But now the blogworld has quieted down quite a bit, but it doesn't seem like much has happened. Back in October, the President and Congress "Increased Pressure on Myanmar" but neither McCain's Saffron Revolution Support Act of 2007 nor the Block Burmese JADE resolution has yet made it to the House or Senate.

Sure, maybe if people aren't talking so much about it, and maybe if you "introduce" legislation concerning it, it'll make your constituants (who weren't really worried about people on the other side of the world in the first place) feel better about you.

Of course, I'm not sure that they really want to do anything about it anyway. We've got a nationally weak stomach for Southeast Asia.
