Aung San Suu Kyi and Myanmar’s Generals/Military Junta

ASEAN’S response to the continued incarceration of Aung San Suu Kyi is downright disgraceful and appalling. The generals are probably laughing at ASEAN for being so impotent against their defiance against ASEAN’s opinion. ASEAN should stop at merely issuing polite and tactful statements of disappointment.

Myanmar should be ejected forthwith from ASEAN. A strong message should be sent to the generals that enough is enough. This action should be followed up with sanctions in line with EU and US action.

Inaction on the part of ASEAN will lead to erosion of its credibility as a regional organisation.

Having been to Myanmar, I know how desperately poor the people are. While the rest of the country disintegrates, the generals wallow in luxury in their new capital.
