Burma Junta Releases Democracy Leader Suu Kyi

Free...but for how long?
Aung San Suu Kyi...finally, she is free!  For the moment, that is.

Given the despotic nature of the military junta that rules Burma, however, it is likely that they will imprison her again at some point in the not too distant future using the slightest pretense.  This woman has spent 15 of the last 20 years imprisoned by quite probably the only government that Obama hasn't apologized or bowed to.  She remains unbowed in her quest for democracy and freedom for the Burmese people.  This slightly built woman in a small country on the other side of the world unequivocally demonstrates for the entire world what our own Forefathers meant when they said that they pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to the cause of freedom.
