Why'd They Run Away?

What's happening in Myanmar?

BANGKOK At precisely 6:37 a.m. on Sunday, according to one report - with a shout of "Let's go!" - a convoy of trucks began a huge, expensive and baffling transfer of the government of Myanmar from the capital, Yangon, to a secret mountain compound 320 kilometers to the north.

There are some very strange people in the world. Myanmar seems convinced we're going to invade them.

Of course, as the story mentions, we do consider them an Outpost of Evil. Which isn't quite as prestigious as being an Axis of Evil, but isn't a bad accomplishment for a county few USofA citizens have probably ever heard of.

As they've said on several episodes of Seinfeld, "You've probably heard of it as Burma."

Heh. That would have made a good post title.
