Apparently, Aung San Suu Kyi has realised that confronting the Junta will not be conducive to achieve her aim and instead she has to work within the restrictions imposed by the current dispensation. The common Myamarese have suffered a lot because of the sanctions and it is time she possibly believes that such sanctions should get lifted where in succour reaches the common person. This will also project Aung San Suu Kyi as a larger than life figure since all Myanmar will know that it was she who could prevail upon the world to ease the pressure. It will be in the US and West's interest to flood Myanmar with assistance, both in kind and in technical expertise and business. This will allow it to have an influence in Myanmar politics since Myanmar will slowly get dependant on Western assistance and without which she is solely dependant on one source - China and its copy cat goods. Such an action with Aung San Suu Kyi's prodding will ensure the diminishing of Chinese influence on Myanmar and will give China greater cause to worry that the US is indeed 'encircling' China. A greater cooperation of the West and through proxies such as ASEAN, will go a long way to isolate China and achieve consolidation in promoting a free and democratic Myanmar.
