Cease Fire? Maybe Not.

Seems like a bit of the good news from Myanmar reported a few weeks ago (see More Good News From Myanmar) may have been premature. Government announces that it has signed a cease-fire agreement with the Karen National Union guerillas. Three weeks later, the Karen rebels say "We never signed a cease fire. We still need to discuss the conditions". Sigh. Disappointing, but not surprising. [NOTE: Image, by Francis Wade, from the Democratic Voice of Burma, shows a Democratic Karen Buddhist Army (DKBA) soldier with a rocket launcher. Buddhist army? Interesting concept. Camouflage fatigues and saffron kerchief].
