Shame on Malaysia – it's federal government seems to support the Burmese dictatorship

Burma's pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi will protest her innocence when she goes on trial today, 18 May 2009, on trumped up charges in a Rangoon kangaroo court.

On Sunday, 17 May 2009, the Philippines added to the wave of condemnation, saying it was "outraged" by Mrs Suu Kyi's treatment, joining Indonesia, Thailand and Singapore among Burma's regional neighbours and ASEAN members in speaking out.

What about Malaysia?

By their collective silence, Najib's cabinet seems to be siding with the Burmese dictators.

One cannot help but think UMNO and the BN leaders are envious of the tyrannical junta who rule Burma with an iron fist.

How they must wish they could do the same in Malaysia!

Does Najib support the law of revenge [lex talionis]?

What about ASEAN?

Burma (Myanmar) should be immediately expelled from ASEAN and not allowed to join again until a semblance of democracy is restored.
