How it relates to geography and things we learned In unit 6 (pg. 435, 446-447) we begin learning about United Nations and what it consists of.

Every member has agreed to follow the UN system and its rules and this article is talking about 1 of the rules that now worries people. The UN has a peacekeeping operation but if they can't get past the border to Burma, how are they going to help or keep peace? Personally I believe that what's done is done, and it's enough, let atlist the survivers get aid now. They should open up the border allready and let other countries help out. It is not fair and everyone should be treated equally no matter who made up that rule. Yet again that's just an opinion. ...read more.
