    That twinge in your intestines
    Dr. Aung San Suu Kyi's detention has expired, and she is free to leave her house. Now, if she and the people of her country were free to speak as they pleased, and vote the corrupt regime out of power...

    The odds of that happening seem slim at best. :-(

    Good news indeed. She has been locked up in her house for the past 7 years, but I believe that she has spent around 21 years in various jails:(

    That's not a jail, that's my basement - and I have to say... the gimp suit really suits him! :biggrin:

    But, on topic, it's about fucking time!

    It is indeed good news. It is high time the Burmese people were released from the yoke of the so-called Marxist military dictatorship.

    But she has been released three times before, so it is still unknown what will happen.

    Only good news for the physical liberty of Aung San Suu Kyi. It seems unlikely that her release is a signal that Myanmar is getting any closer to democratic reform. Most likely that she will end up back in prison or detention if she merely utters the word democracy.

    Why is this thread relegated to Et Cetera, Et Cetera next to "my favourite baking tips"?

    I'm very pleased to see Aung San Suu Kyi released from house arrest. I do hope that this isn't just the first step on a thousand step march to Burmese liberation from dictatorship.

    Everyone knows that 'Etcetera' is the happening Forum, and Politics is troll-infested. :tongue: But seriously, she got welcomed out like a rockstar by happy throngs.
