    Wall Street Journal editorial comes close to calling Aung San Suu Kyi's refusal to take the oath of office grandstanding.

    Of course, I'm sure the WSJ will support any government that is exploiting resources and labor, as long as Western companies get a piece of the action.

    I thought the use of Myanmar was taboo because it's what the authoritarian regime calls the country. I thought Burma was still the accepted use for those who oppose them.
