WashPost Editorial

Yesterday the Post published an editorial entitled "Straight Talk".

It seems to getting some play over here. People keep mentioning it to me.

Frankly, it seems a bit hostile and unrepresentative of the current situation. Also dispite criticizing the US Admin for not financially backing reform, the blame was laid on the regimes.

Also, I am unsure if the whole civil society orgs speaking "in the presence of the regimes while the most powerful nation in the world" watched is all that important or translatable into future reform.

Interested to see what you all think
