“We just walked through the soldiers who were kneeling there,” suu kyi recalled.
suu kyi also said at a press conference last Wednesday that the U.S. “has been overly optimistic about the reform process.”
But suu kyi has discovered that real politics is an altogether more slippery challenge.
suu kyi will likely smile graciously in the U.S. as she receives more accolades, but the honeymoon may be over.
The glaringly obvious reason is that, upon her election to Parliament in April 2012, suu kyi became a politician.
Thein Sein released suu kyi from house arrest—and she promptly won a seat in Parliament.
Nelson was surprised when she finally arrived at suu kyi's house.
But on Monday suu kyi backed down and said she and her colleagues would say the oath as required.
If suu kyi were to speak out, loud and clear, about the attacks, she would win the applause of people in the West.
Should suu kyi, for example, throw herself into improving the lot of her poor constituents in Kawhmu?
