>The Op-Ed contains the following January 10 quote by Aung San Suu Kyi: "If

>should start thinking seriously of sanctions."
>The Op-Ed argues that since the conditions of imposing the sanctions on

>I can fax or mail a clean copy of the Op-Ed to anyone who needs it.

I m a Belgian student in business administration and I m preparing a thesis
about investment in Burma. Because of that, I m deeply interested in every
article dealing about Burma and investment boycott. Please, send me this
Op-Ed on my E-mail.
Thank you very much
