Burma’s New Constitution will exclude Aung San Suu Kyi from government (again) February 20, 2008

Posted by Philip Ryan in Burma.

Burma finishes up a draft of their new constitution and not surprisingly Aung San Suu Kyi won’t be allowed to run for election in 2010. This is part of their faint pretense at moving toward democracy. ASEAN, criticized for lack of action throughout the Burmese crisis, expresses concern.

Burma’s junta could give two figs what the world think, but China cares, and China controls the purse strings. So when the junta kicks, make China, specifically the effort to mount the Berlin 1936 Bejing 2008 Olympics, feel it.
