Burma's new military regime has a friendlier name, but will the leaders change in their deeds? On Saturday, Burma's four top generals announced they had dissolved the State Law and Order Restoration Council and replaced it with the State Peace and Development Council. "We hope there is a change of heart and thinking also, but it is too early to make a judgement," said Tin Oo, vice-chairman of the National League for Democracy, the party of which Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is also a top official.
