Can We Settle on Whether to Call it Myanmar or Burma?

Jump to last reply

Well, this would be a good topic for a troll post but inappropriate for the lounge. Anyway, as many of you know, I am not a troll :-) However, when posting responses or questions on this I am lost as to what is best. My preference is Myanmar because Burma is a Colonial term created by the Brits (is that a politically correct term?). Myanmar is the traditional name of the country, which unfortunately seems to have been brought back by the military Junta and thus folks tend to resist using it. Your thoughts?
