Myanmar: Junta leader is “mentally insane”

For conducting an “unjustified trial” against Myanmar opposition leader Daw Aung San Su Kyi, a blogger uploads an article which caricatures the junta leader Than Shwe as “mentally insane.” Suu Kyi is on trial for allegedly violating the terms of her house arrest.

    It has been clear for years that Than Shwe is insane, anyone who assumes he is the leader of his country and commits murders rapes theft drug manufacturing and not for getting laying false charges against people and sentencing people brought up before the courts on those false charges to absurdly long and illegal terms of imprisonment, that person must be insane.
