Title: Myanmar military has started to arrest protest leaders and launch measures to control people. “Don’t kill the tiger to get off it”
On the tiger: People

[Refers to the Myanmar junta beginning to use force to deal with their opposition and the people who are protesting. This cartoon illustrates the proverb “riding on the tiger” meaning how it is difficult to get out of a dangerous situation–especially for leaders to step away from a situation where they rule with an iron fist.]
