Happier news

On a slightly happier note, Myanmar pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi was released from the hopsital, although she is still under house arrest, as she has been, for most of the last 16 years.

Said the US spokesman:

"We would call upon the Burmese government to provide Aung San Suu Kyi any and all medical assistance that she might need and to do so expeditiously and to ensure her safety during any treatment," spokesman Sean McCormack said.

"And we would also reiterate our call on the regime to release her from house arrest. It's sometimes difficult to get good, solid information in Burma, just because of the nature of the place. But we are quite concerned about the reports," he said.
Myanmar is also known as Burma.

How quaint. Myanmar has been used since 1989, but the US is still being old school.

Suu Kyi may be out of the hospital, but Myanmar still needs to call off the house arrest order.
