Will Aung San Suu Kyi be Freed?

Comment: Aung San Suu Kyi has spent the last 15 years either in prison or under house arrest.  There has been some motioning and speculation that Burma's military junta will release her.   I certainly hope so.

Burma's ruling junta-backed party has claimed victory in Tuesday's election which was marred by violence.

Though the election was nothing more than a sham (China disagrees), let's hope that Aung San Suu Kyi is released nonetheless.
