There is no anti-Buddhist racism. I'm constantly in touch with Myanmar, through Burmese exiles living in Europe and European businessmen based in Myanmar. The West has many vested interests in the country, which can only flourish, prosper, if we keep Myanmar one of the poorest countries in the world and keep the military in control (the current "democratic" status is total fake). The military, many of them doubling in Politics, are paid, due to the country's poverty, very low salaries. Their only way of making good money is accepting bribes from warlords. The use of armaments has to be promoted at all costs.
