Freedom in Burma. The depth of my knowledge of the situation in Burma is limited. I have, however, always felt an admiration for the strength of Aung San Suu Kyi despite her fate. In a struggle like this, with people demanding basic freedoms, of course it is obvious where my sympathies are. One interesting and rather predictible sign of the current times is the fact that China is said to have attempted to downplay the significance of the freedom protesters. Of course the Chinese dictatorship wants to do that and avoid either similar events at home or getting more democratic neighbours. The problem is that China′s weight in the international order is increasing fast. This is the kind of view that will most likely gain more influence in the world. Thus, it provides an illustration of the importance of a strong trans-atlantic relation with the EU and the US working for freedom and democracy.
