  1. Actually, holding their breath until they’re blue in the face is about all the world’s supporters of Burma’s oppressed can do.

    The UN will do what China and Russia tells it to do. Of course, with a Sandinista flunky in charge of the General Assembly, they may very well tell the protesters to shut up and stop spouting neo-colonial plots about Burma’s gas and oil China and India are exploiting with no benefit for the Burmese people.

    Of course, allegedly the Burmese are now developing a nuclear weapons program with North Korean help and Chinese approval, so none of this “pressure” matters in the end.

  2. Suu Kyi won’t be released, but we’ll feel better about ourselves for “doing something”. So in that sense it will work.
