Burma -- Emperor's New Clothes -- Irrawaddy cartoon --

The junta generals are changing into civilian clothes to contest in new election which international community calls a sham.

They have barred Aung San Suu Kyi and the NLD from participating, still have her and nearly 2200 political prisoners under house arrest and trapped her into withdrawing from the process.

She is barred from ever being head of state in Burma because she was "once married to a foreigner (Dr Micheal Aris, who died March 27, 1999 of prostate cancer) and is mother of "half-breed children" according to spdc's so-called "constitution" ratified in so-called "referendum" a few days after Cyclone Nargis in May 2008.

This cartoon says it all.
