WorldView: What Tom Cruise Teaches the World About Myanmar

Published by at 8:24 pm under Uncategorized

Looking at this classic scene from Jerry Maguire, one sees echoes of our current crisis in Myanmar.

In this scene, Tom Cruise plays “the international community” literally begging to be allowed to administer humanitarian aid and deliver food to the brutalized citizenry of Myanmar. Cuba Gooding Jr. is in the role of “Myanmar’s junta”, openly mocking the international community’s earnest desire to help the people. Enjoy.

Who new Tom Cruise operated on so many levels?

On a side note, even New Media platform NowPublic can’t seem to get any news out of Myanmar to fill in the gaps of traditional media. Looks like the generals really have the place locked down.
