Good news for the Burmese people and good for democracy. Let’s hope its a good one, democrats.
I remember how the monks in Burma peacefully rose up in protest, a rare, brave, and special movement, only to be brutally beat down by government security thugs back in Sep. 2007. That was long before Tunisa’s protests.
“President Barack Obama telephoned Aung San Suu Kyi, the opposition leader and fellow Nobel Peace Prize winner from Air Force One to get her blessing for a visit by the US Secretary of State, the first in more than 50 years.”
“Hillary Clinton to become highest level Western official to visit Burma in half a century Hillary Clinton will next month become”
“The Obama administration sees Mrs Clinton’s visit as a sign of success for its Burma policy, which focused on punishments and incentives to push the military rulers to improve dire human rights conditions. The US imposed new sanctions but made clear it was open to better relations if the situation changed.”
