Obama To Meet With Myanmar Rulers

By Matthew Mosk and Simon Roughneen THE WASHINGTON TIMES

SINGAPORE | President Obama on Sunday will become the first American president in more than 40 years to attend a meeting with the repressive rulers of Myanmar, marking a dramatic shift in the U.S. approach to bringing change to a regime that responds brutally to dissent, locks up journalists and political opponents, and has kept itself largely walled off from the Western world.

Formerly known as Burma, Myanmar has for years played the role of skunk in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, known as ASEAN, repeatedly preventing the group from attracting participation from the United States. But Mr. Obama came to office promising to extend an open hand to rogue states in the hopes of changing the dynamics.

How can an illegitimate tyrant posing as the American President provide legitimacy to Asian tyrants?

.........................40 years to attend a meeting with the repressive rulers of Myanmar, marking a dramatic shift in the U.S. approach to bringing change to a regime that responds brutally to dissent, locks up journalists and political opponents, and has kept itself largely walled off from the Western world. ................

Zer0 thinks that this is great! His question is to how to milk this division for the next 40 years in the US.

Aung San Suu Kyi has earned international recognition as an activist for the return of democratic rule, winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991. The ruling regime has repeatedly placed her under house arrest.

When the Washington Times makes no reference to her, we have to figure that it's not much better than the MSM's worst offenders.

Just bizarre.. one Nobel Peace Prize "winner" travels to the another winner's country, where she is a political prisoner, but will never say a word about it.

Too bad he is too late to have a round of golf with Pol Pot.
