Democracy Rising

Just Bizarre

Not Democracy-related but couldn't believe this. According to the BBC the Burmese government is moving it's capital. From the article it appears that only bureaucrats will be moving however. Very convenient.

Some analysts point to a paranoia among senior military figures that they might come under attack, potentially from the United States, and that a location further from the coast is strategically safer.

Burma, or whatever the regime is calling it these days, need not worry. The majority of world leaders have grown largely apathetic in regard to the continued House Arrest of Aung San Suu Kyi. Sadly a democratic revolution looks further away for the people of this Asian nation, than ever before.
