A sham!!! Free Aung San Suu Kyi!!!

Anyone who reads this blog knows of my great admiration for The Lady. She is a champion of freedom. She is the rightful leader of Burma. The murderous Burmese generals are afraid of this giant of a woman. Her people love her and would vote for her overwhelmingly if there were an election today. The Burmese generals have announced an utter sham. This is not an election. It is a joke.

Burma announces Nov. 7 date for first elections in 20 years

BANGKOK -- The Burmese government will hold the country's first elections in 20 years on Nov. 7 despite an increasingly vocal chorus of international criticism.

The election, announced Friday, will be the final leg in Senior Gen. Than Shwe's seven-step program to establish "discipline-flourishing democracy." Opponents have criticized both the constitutional framework behind the elections, which guarantees the military a quarter of the seats in parliament, and its mechanics, which have barred Aung San Suu Kyi, the imprisoned opposition leader, from running.
