Myanmar Protests Turn Violent: Today's Cartoon

By opening fire on pro-democracy demonstrations led by thousands of Buddhist monks, not only does it appear that Myanmar's military rulers have no respect for human rights and freedom of expression, but apparently they don't believe in "karma" much either.

In what has become an unavoidable clash between the nation's two most influential authorities, the fact that public support overwhelmingly favors the monk's passive protest of the nations oppressive dictatorship just goes to show that the world does not need violent military interventions and occupations to spread the good word of democracy... just a few thousand Buddhist monks.

Perhaps the Bush administration should have consider this before shoving its forces into Iraq and Afghanistan (and now probably Iran). Hmm... I wonder if it's too late to get a bunch of these monks to go into Baghdad.
