I just couldn't comprehend why these changes were made.

"The military, which has ruled since a 1962 coup, changed the country's name in English from Burma to Myanmar in 1989, a year after widespread protests against military rule were crushed, and a year before the last election.

That election was won by the party of pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi but the military ignored the result. Suu Kyi has spent 15 of the past 21 years in detention."

This statement is just so painful..
