Words of hope for Burma

As the Burmese butchers try everything they can to put down the Saffron Revolution, including concocting reports of a so-called "pro government" rally, I offer these words of hope to the people in Burma -- in the hopes that somehow, their filters will miss this and other blogs. The words come from a couple of lines in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince:

"Have you any idea how much tyrants fear the people they oppress? All of them realise that, one day, amongst their many victims, there is sure to be one who rises up against them and strikes back!" (UK edition, p. 477)

So, once again, along with all other decent people in the outside world, we ask nothing more than for the leadership in Burma to lay down their arms, peacefully; and allow Daw Aung Sung Suu Kyi to take her rightful place as Prime Minister. If not -- I pray God strikes the junta down before someone else does.
