10,000 BUDDHIST MONKS
Sorry to disturb you, placid American -- these images from Myanmar -- formerly Burma -- show Buddhist monks peacefully protesting a brutal dictatorship. As many as 10,000 risked their lives to make a statement. They were met with teargas, beatings, torture and murder. So look at the pictures. Think. Now back to your normal programming. Have a nice day.
