Burmese Spring?

Are the winds of change blowing in Myanmar (aka Burma)? Mohammed A.R. Galadari thinks maybe so

Judging by the way the junta is finding itself isolated both within the country and abroad, it is clear that the Nobel-winning leader [Aung San Suu Kyi] cannot remain incarcerated for long.
A long way between here & there, but the winds are good....

UPDATE: Do those winds of change blow in Libya too?
[son of Mohammar Khadaffy} Seif el-Islam said:

"Democracy is the future. We have to be ahead of the world in our region, the Middle East, and not to be lagging behind, because the whole world is heading toward democracy."
Is he serious or stalling? Well, one can hope for the best. (With a hat tip to Roger L. Simon).
