DISGRASIAN OF THE WEAK! Myanmar’s Military Junta

August 14th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Diana


A court in Burma sentenced pro-democracy opposition leader and Nobel Peace Laureate Aung San Suu Kyi to an additional 18 months of house arrest (dialed down from a sentence of 3 years hard labor) earlier this week, for violating the terms of her original house arrest agreement. The violation occured when 53-year-old American John Yettaw swam uninvited across a lake to her villa, in attempt to “save” her from assassination–he has since been slapped with seven years of prison and hard labor for “breaching the rules of her house arrest and for violations of immigration law and local ordinances.”

Sadly, despite her lack of volition in the incident, Suu Kyi is still paying the price for Yettaw’s white knight moment.

We think the statement from President Obama says it best:

“The conviction and sentencing of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi today on charges related to an uninvited intrusion into her home violate universal principles of human rights, run counter to Burma’s commitments under the ASEAN charter, and demonstrate continued disregard for UN Security Council statements. I join the international community in calling for Aung San Suu Kyi’s immediate unconditional release.

Today’s unjust decision reminds us of the thousands of other political prisoners in Burma who, like Aung San Suu Kyi, have been denied their liberty because of their pursuit of a government that respects the will, rights, and aspirations of all Burmese citizens…”

But we are perhaps most encouraged by one particular voice of condemnation, which spoke loudly against the conviction from a tour through Africa:

“[Suu Kyi] should not have been tried and she should not have been convicted.”

…and we encourage the junta to take Sec. Clinton’s firm words to heart. Our advice to those assholes—don’t keep this bitch mad for long. Rest assured that she can and will fuck your shit up. And we certainly hope she does.
