Burma / Myanmar


Flag of National League for Democracy

The following articles and interviews are all about Burma and Aung San Suu Kyi. It is interesting as an American that Burma got its independence from the British by the leadership of Aung San who told them to leave his country. In many ways, Aung San parallels George Washington...except that the British left in 1948. The Burmese celebrate their Independence Day on January 4, 1948. Because of Aung San's ability to reason with the British, they left without a revolution like ours against the British in 1776.

Tragically, a political rival assassinated Aung San resulting finally in a military government in Burma now called Myanmar. In spite of that senseless killing, Aung San's daughter, Aung San Suu Kyi has continued to follow her father's leadership example. She has lead her people toward more freedom, rights, and dignity.
