Finally, after decades of oppression, the military government of Burma has decided t adopt the ideas of democracy as the center of society. Over 600 prisoners were released from jail by the Myanmar government in response to please from US Secretary of State who urged them to take such steps in order to gain support from nations of the world. Political activists, journalists, an even a former prime minister were given get-out-of-jail cards to jubilation in the streets of Burmese cities.
We have criticized President Obama for foreign policy mistakes. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton deserves praise for her work in assisting Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi to create conditions leading to democracy in her nation. Believe it or not, the US can sometimes do the right thing!
