This will be one big headache for China and possibly an end to their dream of access to the Indian Ocean through Myanmar! This is quite a coup that will benefit the West immensely, not only from the point of view of strategy and geopolitics, but also in the form of investments and mineral extraction, Myanmar being virgin territory! It will be another outpost to 'contain' China and one where China herself has opened up the routes to China through the highways and rail links. It will also be a damper for China's attempt to snuggle Bangladesh in her Panda hug through Myanmar! One wonders what will be the Chinese strategy to minimise the damage, if Aung San Suu Kyi comes to power, which she will!
