    The question is not how far. The question is, do you possess the constitution, the depth of faith, to go as far as is needed?

    'Tear gas used' on Burma monks

    Military officials in Burma have used tear gas to disperse hundreds of monks holding a rally in the north-west city of Sittwe, reports from the area say.

    Some of them were beaten and several were arrested, eyewitnesses say.

    Large numbers of monks have also held protests in at least five other towns and cities across the country, including the former capital Rangoon.

    They are demanding a government apology for the violent break-up of a recent rally against a sudden fuel price rise.

    I guess they don't have TASERS in Burma.
