Seriously, they’re killing/imprisoning the Buddhist monks, who were the last hope for non-violent leverage. There’s a point where you have to stop trying to reason with people and start trying to kill them (I think Matt said this originally, but I can’t find it in his archives). This is one of those times. I hate to say it, but the only way Burma is coming out of this crisis is by the opposition killing the junta and taking the country back by force.
