malaysiakini and the MYNAMAR JUNTA....

malaysiakini has this article on the problem. It is headed 'Stronger action needed to free Suu Kyi'
The Myanmar regime is somewhat similar to the situation in Malaysia. The authorities are prepared to use force and illegal means to stay in power or to upset the results of a genuine election.
For Myanmar, the generals had too much to lose when Aung San Suu Kyi's party won the national polls and they decided not to let democracy flower.
After what happened in Perak and the court proceedings, Malaysia too is in danger of ending up in a similar state as vital state institutions have been compromised like the PDRM and the Judiciary.
In Burma we see raw military brutality - in Malaysia we can see the emerging of an ugly and all-powerful Executive.
If Malaysians are not vigilant and prepared to defend their liberty, we too can end up like Myanmar.
Maybe that is why Malaysia has been unwilling to condemn their actions for many years and in fact some prominent Malaysian companies have set up lucrative business there to exploit the nation's natural resources.
