How The Obama Administration Can Help Burma

WSJ: What Obama Can Do for Burma

How can the U.S. and the international community play a meaningful role in bringing true peace and freedom to Burma?

The answer lies in placing collective political and economic pressure on the regime to engage in meaningful and time-bound dialogue with Ms. Suu Kyi, her party, and the leaders of Burma's ethnic minorities.

Failing that, the U.S. should take the lead in organizing a global arms embargo against the regime, and establish a commission of inquiry to investigate war crimes and crimes against humanity in Burma by the United Nations.
