I note with interest that Zimbabwe and Myanmar are among those states voting for Israel accountability in respect of Gaza. US voted against and Britain showed its resolve to minimize its influence in global affairs by abstaining.  So where is our moral authority with regard to the absence of democracy in Burma (Myanmar) and the truly appalling situation created by Mugabe in Zimbabwe.  We will naturally continue to criticize and to apply sanctions to Zimbabwe but not to Myanmar:  Sanctions don’t work (Miliband): but do, apparently against Zimbabwe, although I’m not sure anyone has noticed.
