Free Daw Aung San Suu Kyi

The fascist military thugs in Burma need to be shut down. I don't care if Cheney and Halliburton have a history over there, and it could be embarrassing. The situation over there has gone far enough, and one of the most vigorous defenders of freedom and democracy in the world is in danger, while a people who voted for a legitimate government overwhelmingly in a sanctioned election are denied their sovereignty, and chosen power.

I will have more on this later. The situation in Burma is untenable, and America cannot stand by idly, or the rest of the free world for that matter, while this outrage against our most cherished ideals, and these peoples' emerging dreams, continues.


More on Aung, Burma and Halliburton here.
