MYANMAR/BURMA — The National League for Democracy has launched its own website. According to Mizzima:

Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi was reportedly pleased with the creation of a National League for Democracy party website by an unidentified third party outside of Burma.

The Washington Post asks the important question:

It was not immediately clear if the government, which exercises tight control over the Internet and other media, would try to block the site, which is meant for party members at home as well as supporters abroad.

The headlines this morning include: The NLD helps to solve drinking water shortage in northern Chin; Analysis of the Economy; and Book review roundtable. Hardly revolutionary rhetoric, but then that’s not Aung San Suu Kyi’s style.

Do what you can to make this a good morning, Myanmar.
