My heart is with the Myanmar citizens protesting the military coup.
I wish them well.
I recall the protests when Suu Kyi was first put under house arrest – the military had the resources to outlast them and life went back to its routine for 15 years.
I hope to be proved wrong but I feel resistance is futile – against a ruthless military not afraid to use arms against a defenseless citizenry !!
