More on Burma

The news is getting worse. Apart from people being killed we hear of mass arrests of the monks who have been leading the protests. It is hard to see a way forward from here. If Brown and Bush mean what they say it would be good to see them lay out the moves they will make.

So how about economic sanctions on those countries that do not take economic sanctions themselves against Burma. Even if this not enough to convince China it should help with those Asean countries like Singapore, Indonesia and Thailand.

If there is again an escape into the jungle by protesters, let's have a promise of aid, including arms, and asylum for those asking for it.
