POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY MARK MACKINNON IN TORONTO’S GLOBE AND MAIL

Sorry, but I think Aung San Suu Kyi is a bit off her nut.

The press – that creation of American imperial interests and huge corporations – has treated her as some kind of sainted person standing against the forces of darkness.

I don’t see that at all, and she has made many statements which do not even make a lot of sense.

First, of all the world’s tyrannies, Burma is not one of the worst by a very good measure.

In a really ugly place, she would simply have been “disappeared” long ago.

Instead, she was given house arrest with the occasional access to press and other outsiders.

And of course, when a bloody monster like Hillary Clinton praises her, we know something is not quite right.

As to the Nobel Peace Prize, well, other winners include Barack Obama, who is now busy slaughtering thousands of people by drones; Henry Kissinger, a genuine war criminal if there ever was one; Andrei Sakharov, father of the Russian hydrogen bomb; Simon Peres, political father of Israel’s nuclear arsenal; Menachim Begin, an old Irgun terrorist with lots of blood on his hands; Al Gore, the biggest phony pitchman since Oral Roberts; and Mother Teresa, a religious zealot of questionable ethics.
