The Axis of Engagement II

In return for their kangaroo-court conviction of Burma’s rightful prime minister--five years’ hard labor, ‘commuted’ to eighteen months of house arrest that will conveniently keep her out of the 2010 elections--the Burmese dictators will receive . . . a high-level visit from a US Senator! Jim Webb will not only tour the debauched country that the thugs call Myanmar, but he will sit down and chat with head thug Than Shwe. This would be the same ‘Senior General’ who last year led the theft of the international aid intended for victims of Cyclone Nargis. Alas for Burma. Alas for Aung San Suu Kyi. Alas for America, that we should legitimate this travesty. Blue skies! – Dan Ford
