Aung San Suu Kyi – the wolf in lambs clothing?

I don’t like military dictatorships, like the one in Burmah, and either does John Pilger. I like the works of John Pilger very much!

Pilger likes Aung San Suu Kyi (ASSK) and often writes in support of her. However John, like me, doesn’t like the BBC. But today ASSK praised the BBC – and the BBC wasn’t shy to publicise as much.

I remember seeing an interview with ASSK and it triggered alarm bells in my head. ASSK was saying that her vision for Burmah was (I’m paraphrasing) to be a mirror of typical Western countries. That would involve massive Corporatization of Burmah resulting in an already impoverished people be impoverished even more at the expense of the emergent middle and upper wealth class.

I feel John must have missed out on these things (i.e. the warning signs).

Although I am very sorry about ASSK’s personal history, I get the impression if she was allowed to have taken the role of Burmah’s leader, then it would not bring benefit to those who most needed it, but merely a different kind of slavery and oppression.

To praise a horrible propaganda outlet like the BBC is extreme (possibly naive) foolishness and another ominous warning sign as to what lies in store for the people of Burmah.

In the UK we have the same problem. Each political side is just a different cheek on the same arse.

I wonder if Pilger will ever see his friend fall from grace? I have never seen Pilger so ‘happy’ to interview her. His respect for an apparent peoples leader who has opposed a military leviathan may have, or may be, obscuring his vision. At one stage wondered if Pilger would be like this with Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez, but to his credit, Pilger included a caveat about Hugo Chavez when he warned about leaders holding power for too long, saying time would tell as to whether it’s touch would prove corrupting. I will end by saying thankfully Hugo doesn’t seem to been driven mad by power yet, but I have little option by to adopt the stance that ASSK has already had the touch.

We shall see, and so I fear will be the people of Burmah.

    I’ve been suspicious of this former Oxford resident for a long time. Worth having a peep at:

    As you imply, anything which the BBC is a “good thing” is probaby quite the opposite.

    Thanks for that felix.

    The US has openly supported her, but actually, I’ve been surprised at how ‘passive’ the US has been on the matter. Of course my perception could just be what the corporate news has chosen to given me (I have no 1st hand info on Burmah), but you must admit it hasn’t really made any USan president of sickretary of state get thier vampire fangs out and sink them into the countries leadership – as it did in Iraq and Libya.

    The article you link to mentions the golden (drugs) triangle. It’s not beyond the realms of possibility that the US is actually covertly siding with the junta and it’s proving useful, and not get too flustered about the barring of the NLD from power.

    So there’s three things then…
    1) The US’s expressions of support for her.
    2) Her desire to bring big business to Burmah.
    3) Her praise for the BBC.

    John, please be careful.

    (p.s. I made some minor changes to my post)
