The Burma road

Telegraph: 'Several dead' as Burma violence escalates

"Cries of 'give us freedom, give us freedom', from crowds totalling an estimated 70,000, were met by the crack of automatic gunfire, baton charges and tear gas."

Sholto Byrnes in New Statesmen: Burma's hour of need.

"Fine words are not enough. The international community must find a coherent strategy to deal with the generals - and China is the key."

Matt Frei's BBC Washington diary: Bush on Burma

"The country deserves the embrace of Lady Liberty and the benefit of George W Bush's doctrine of exporting freedom. Its case, to borrow a phrase, is a slam dunk."

Thousands of peace activists from North America and Europe are probably getting ready to go to Myanmar and become 'human-shields' for the Burmese if necessary.

No, they're not. They'll stay put protesting Bush - who they will blame for it like they do everything - from the comfortable surroundings. The whole 'human shield' idea fell apart in 2002 when some went to Iraq. They realized that Saddam and the Ba'athist Regime was exploiting them. Well DUH!
