Aung San Suu Kyi’s release is imminent:

After seven years under house arrest and 15 of the last 21 incarcerated in some form by Burma‘s military regime, Aung San Suu Kyi today chose one last night of imprisonment so that she might walk truly free.

It was rumoured that Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma’s best-known democracy advocate and a Nobel peace laureate, demanded an unconditional release and insisted on negotiating her unfettered freedom with military officials before she would set foot outside her door.

That’s great.  It really is.  But what about Burma?
