Meanwhile, somewhere that isn't Iran...

Monks killed in protests in Myanmar/Burma as the fascist government cracks down.

It is feared the regime will move to stop the protests with overwhelming force and mass arrests - that could further alienate Burma's leaders from the international community.

US President George Bush yesterday announced new sanctions against Burma's rulers.

Speaking at the UN General Assembly in New York, the US president accused the country's leaders of imposing "a 19-year reign of fear" that denies basic freedoms of speech, assembly and worship.

But will we hear the vast array of neo-con commentators calling for a "liberation" - read "invasion" - there, too? Probably not.
