    Ignorance at its best. the agreement is available in the public domain, read and decide if there is anything wrong before you decide to kill yourself.

    Why not ask the Rev monk what exactly he is contesting about the MCC pact. Let him point out a specific clause, that is if he has read it.

    Americans like all other Westerners don’t even love their own families, as such do you think they are coming here all the way to really help us. Only good news about this treaty is it would deter India from threatening us in the future.

    This country has been protected over two thousand years by our Buddhist monks. For such a venerable monk to take this lofty action against these traitors to save the country remind us we are blessed.

    Fasting has become a fashion?

    Jolly good. These monks should do this more often; just look at their size!!!!!

    This has become a fashion for monks to fast for everything. It is like the Chinese proverb. When one dog barks a hundred barks at the sound.
