Burma dictator asks friend PM Lee for good “one-liner” against Bush

U.S. President Bush announced new American sanctions against the junta ruling Burma today, also known as Myanmar. He accused the military dictatorship of imposing a “19-year reign of terror” on its people. After passing new laws banning assembly and imposing a curfew, Senior General Than Shwe retorted that 19 years was “not as long as Singapore’s reign of terror” and that “Myanmar will not be told what to do by the U.S.” He then lost his train of thought and telephoned his friend PM Lee, also a former military man, for a good line, then continued after PM Lee faxed over a “zinger” from Assoc. Prof. Ho Peng Kee:

“Our laws are an expression and reflection of the values of our society and any public discourse in Burma on such matters should be reserved for Burmese. Foreigners will not be allowed to interfere in our domestic political scene, whether in support of the democracy cause or against it.”
