Supporters of Burma’s detained pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi, marked her 65th birthday today amid renewed calls for her release.
The Nobel peace prize winner has spent 15 of the last 21 years in detention because of her fight for democracy in the army-ruled country and is under house arrest in her home in the former capital, Rangoon.
my fave line in the last rambo movie which was about Burma was this. woman says to rambo we came to aide the people and change the way things are. rambo asks. did you bring any weapons? woman say no. rambo replys . then your not gona change anything.
In Asia, including Burma, all women are staying in their homes and it is their tradition. In this modern times, women have begun to go to work alongwith men. These working women are those who gets a chance to work, ie., those who gets a job. Others who do not get a job are confined to their homes. Like that, Ms.Aangsensukyi is yet to get a suitable employment in her country and so she is in her home. This cant be said to be in house arrest. The western world mischievously instigate her to enter politics to their benefit. Better she is confined in her own house. And avoid escalating tension in this region. Terming the Burmese Govt as military government is not correct, as the military consists of Burmese people only.
