War on Terror Falls Short: Burma!

May 25, 2007

One of the problems with the global war on terror is that it is not global. Instead, it is focused on strategic areas of U.S. political interest.

For instance, the military dictatorship in Burma has ruled the country in corruption and with an iron fist since 1988. One example is the recent imprisonment renewal of Nobel Peace Prize winner and democratically elected leader Aung San Suu Kyi. She has spent the last 11 of her 18 years under house arrest.

From my trips to Burma, I can attest that the country is in gross disrepair, while the new capital gleams with wealth. Dictator General Than Shwe rules the country with oppression and genocidal acts, systematically trying to wipe out indigenous rebels. Pray for Burma, for Sun Kyi.
