This article focuses on how the explosion of three bombs in Myanmar in May 2005 suggests that the struggle for political change may be turning violent. On May 7, 2005 three bombs exploded in Myanmar's capital, Yangon, killing 19 people and injuring 162. Although there have been previous explosions in Myanmar, there has not been a sustained bombing campaign in the country. However, there are signs that violence may be becoming more common. Certainly, the latest attack was much more substantial than others in recent memory. In December 2004, a small bomb exploded in Yangon killing a university student.
