By-about, Burma, bye-bye - What's a name? Burma
Shortly after the junta renamed Myanmar in 1989, we followed that example. Burma's claim that it is ethnically suprematist because it refers to the Burmese minority was fake. "Burma " and "Myanmar" have the same etymologic origins. Myanmar became the "official" name Eg under which the land is known at the UN - and we have used it ever since.
If we did that in America, Myanmar's plight, our camouflage in Asia, would have to become Burma's plight by loosing allegiance but perhaps attracting the interest of those who had no idea where Myanmar was. Elsewhere, however, the question of what to call the land was politically.
Myanmar was what the junta's Asian buddies used to call it. Aung San Suu Kyi's leaders stayed with Burma. It could not have been a coincidence, then, that Barack Obama, who received Myanmar's Chairman Thein Sein at the White House on 20 May, described his land as "Myanmar". America's legal name for Myanmar is still Burma.
For a long time now, the West has recognized that the question of naming is important to the Myanmar uniformed Myanmar commanders who still carry it, now in civil dress. The move to "Myanmar" is a cost-effective move that would bring them good will, but is still being denied, probably also because of concerns about the resistance of Burma's reforms (whoops, Myanmar).
It often seems to choose to use "my country", "our country" or "our country" rather than insulting Mr Thein Sein and his fellow workers by speaking of Burma. Thein Sein (whom he seemed to call Than Shwe, the tyrant whom Lord Thein Sein followed) has difficulties with her name and that of Thein Sein.
