Aung San Suu Kyi is the hero of Burma because her courageous fight for freedom went on for two decades until finally a leader emerged in her nation willing to end dictatorship and allow free expression of ideas. Ms. Suu Kyi was greeted by President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who praised her leadership for freedom. She, in turn, asked for the end of economic sanctions in order to support reform efforts of the Burmese government.
The old world of Myanmar has been replaced by the new world of Burma. End the sanctions and allow Burma to succeed!
