Myanmar's military government stepped up its propaganda machine Thursday, calling foreign critics of its crackdown "liars" and filling state-controlled media with positive spins of the junta's crushing blow to pro-democracy advocates. Soldiers maintained a visible presence on the streets of Yangon, Myanmar's biggest city, where an eerie quiet has returned after last week's deadly crackdown on pro-democracy protesters.
