A blogger right in the heart of Burma. Lest it's forgotten, the real elephant in the room in the current revolution in Burma is this. It is so easy for US corporate media to rail against "repressive regimes" without having to mention that it has always been corporate interests that has kept the military junta in Burma in power. Who knows what's really going on now that China and India are equally interested, alongside with US and Europe, in its natural resources.

I may have signed the human rights protest circulating on the net but I'm saving some skepticism for the backdoor politicking of the real elephants. Ugh.
