The Pot Looks At The Kettle And Doesn't Like What It Sees

The Myanmar government's reaction to offers of aid for the victims of the cyclone reminds me of President Bush's refusal of help after Hurricane Katrina, except the number of people needing help this time is on a much larger scale.

According to an article from the Associated Press today, President Bush criticized the Myanmar government's slow response and refusal to accept aid from other countries. He said, "Here they are with a major catastrophe on their hands, and (they) do not allow there to be the full kind of might of a compassionate world to help them."

However awkward his wording was, I agree with what Bush says in this quote. But it does seem to be a case of the pot calling the kettle black.
