"Newly-freed democracy icon Aung San Suu Kyi called on Monday for a 'non-violent revolution' in Myanmar as she knuckled down to the task of rebuilding her weakened opposition movement."

A note of caution regarding our comment sections:

For months a stream of media reports have warned of coordinated propaganda efforts targeting political websites based in the U.S., particularly in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election.

We too were alarmed at the patterns we were, and still are, seeing. It is clear that the provocateurs are far more savvy, disciplined, and purposeful than anything we have ever experienced before.

It is also clear that we still have elements of the same activity in our article discussion forums at this time.

We have hosted and encouraged reader expression since the turn of the century. The comments of our readers are the most vibrant, best-used interactive feature at Reader Supported News. Accordingly, we are strongly resistant to interrupting those services.

It is, however, important to note that in all likelihood hardened operatives are attempting to shape the dialog our community seeks to engage in.

Adapt and overcome.

I am so glad that military finally released Suu Kyi. I'm concerned that this country will also become a military dictatorship. Conservatives want to eliminate or dwindle social programs such as Social Security and medical care for indigent yet want to increase military spending and unneccasary wars. think that sort of thing happened in Germany and Russia before Hitler and Stalin took over. Only the Jews instead of gays and the poor were demonized.

Maybe she could be invited to lecture us on the evils of conservatism. Hopefully she won't be stomp on the head by four right-wing conservative angry white male thugs like that young 23 years all girl did in Kentucky last month for excercising her free speech in front a rabid mentally chanllenged TEA party candidate sideshow!
