UK underwriters ‘helping Myanmar’s brutal regime’

The London insurance connection propping up the murderous Myanmar military dictatorship can be revealed in a development that will acutely embarrass leading City of London figures.

Three Lloyd’s of London operators will be named as helping to insure the junta’s state-owned airline Myanma Airways this year. They are Kiln, Atrium and Catlin. All were contacted by the Observer and asked to explain their involvement but refused to comment.

Mugabe decided that his citizens were better dead than fed; his nation had no part in the decision.

Robert Kagan believes a war is coming. Not necessarily one with guns and bombs, but his new book argues that a fundamental global divide is emerging between liberal democracies and autocratic governments—namely Russia and China. He and presidential hopeful John McCain, whom he advises, call for a League of Democracies, which the Republican candidate has pledged to pursue if he wins the November election. NEWSWEEK’s Christopher Werth spoke with Kagan about the ascendancy of great-power competition. Continue reading

Myanmar blocks ASEAN move for EU-style alliance

SINGAPORE: Southeast Asian leaders adopted a landmark charter on Tuesday that seeks to promote free trade and human rights, but their vision to create an integrated, EU-style bloc was marred by Myanmar’s snub to democracy.

In a diplomatic bungle, the 10 members of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) also abruptly withdrew an invitation to UN envoy Ibrahim Gambari to address Asian leaders after Myanmar objected.
