Buddhists for Burma

Russia and China vote to take no action on Burma in the Security Council. Again, if the U.S. hadn't abused and exploited the U.N., it would be easier to benefit from the good things the Security Council can actually do.

The Myanmar state media says 2,093 people had been arrested in the crackdown and that 692 of them have been released. Human Rights Watch calls these numbers "very plausible."

The Wall Street Journal discusses politically active monks and says the junta has used Buddhism to its own ends over the years. Oh the irony.

And here's a piece on how Buddhists have rallied around the Free Burma cause.
