  1. Antonio says:

    Aung Sang Suu Kyi violated her house detention therefore was justifiably sentenced to additional house detention but in the traditional KPFA style you’re always on the side of criminals.Furthermore Suu Kyi is a stooge for the British imperialism that’s why the imperial powers and Dennis Bernstein,the left leg for U.S. imperialism on this issue,Iran and some more,are kicking and screaming about it.
    You’re rotten politics are never gaion the approval of U.S. citizens of good conscience.

  2. Antonio says:

    “Moderation” must mean censorship in KPFA’s parlance.Right?

  3. Mari says:

    Antonio, dime de donde vienes y te dire quien eres.

  4. antonio says:

    ¿A quién se supone que debo decirle,a alguna racista de “La Raza”?
