This debate (on sanctions and Burma) never goes away.

Steinberg recently orchestrated a “policy review” in DC but did not invite people like me who disagree with him.

Sanctions are meant to send the junta a strong message — no more no less.

Anyway, all the “engagement policies” will do no good because junta just keeps on with its human rights abuses. It has carried on military campaigns against all the ethnic groups and is attacking its own people, if you haven’t heard.

Anyone trying to be in this debate should do their own research.

The anti-sanctions clique has accepted money and other perks like free trips from the spdc, so hardly have a good reputation, but they keep trying.
