Sadness in Burma
Here's a link to the piece I did last week for Antiwar.com on the sad situation in Burma/Myanmar. Unfortunately my hunch that things might turn out badly was correct. I guess I didn't reckon with just how happy the Burmese military is to have the country so isolated from the rest of the world in terms of economic and political relations, so it doesn't have to care a whit what the rest of the world thinks -- including China, which seems to have much less influence on Myanmar than most commentators thought or hoped.
