New pressure can oust Burma's generals

I t is difficult for me to talk about Burma without a deep sense of nostalgia. My earliest memories are all there; I grew up in Mandalay, between the ages of three and six. But the magically beautiful country I remember from my early years has now been in the grip of a supremely despotic military rule for almost half a century, with collapsing institutions, arbitrary imprisonment, widespread torture, and terrorised minority communities. The situation has remained terrible for so long that there is now a kind of defeatism that makes frustrated well-wishers eager to be thrilled by little mercies. So while Aung San Suu Kyi's release from unjust confinement is a great moment for celebration, it is also a time to think clearly about what the world can do to help her cause.
