The ‘Idle No More’ phenomena has reached epic proportions in recent weeks as indigenous people from throughout the America’s have risen to support Chief Spence and her hunger strike against Canadian tyranny. Prime Minister Steve Harper inadvertently opened up a can of worms as he deliberately showed callous disregard for the People of the First Nation and it’s all about natural resources, tribal land and the corporate bottom line. The very same thing is happening to the Kachin (Jinghpaw) People of Kachin State Burma and if you connect the dots they are directly related to one another. more »
In Time Square, they dropped the ball for New Years. In Burma, they dropped bombs for New Years. Call it Than Shwe’s gift to the ethnic Kachin People (Jinghpaw) on this New Years Day as he stepped up military operations with renewed air strikes by attack helicopters and jet fighters. Civilians in the Laiza area were forced to dig bomb shelters as *Burmese Government forces destroyed infrastructure, civilian & military targets in clear violation of International Law as well as mandates issued by the UN. Guess those international laws only apply when convenient and profitable. And where is the western media, asleep at the wheel again but its not the first time they deliberately ignored the Kachin People. more »
Where is the United Nations and the Western Media as the Burmese junta wages war against innocent civilians to steal their land for foreign corporate interests? Probably looking the other way like they have done with the continued genocide in Kachin State where over 100,000 IDPs are dying from exposure while torture rape and murder continue. And yes, Kachin State is chock full of gold, uranium, rare earth minerals, oil & gas and other natural resources. Or is that just another coincidence?
Funny how the west ignores issues that involve mining and natural resources verses the people. Is it really all about the money at the expense of humanity? It would appear globalist mining corporations are a cancer and are infecting the globe on a grand scale for Burma is only the tip of the ice berg. Loathsome and corrupt corporations who allow people to be displaced and murdered for the corporate bottom line are on every continent on the planet.
China is only the the fall guy since there are US and Canadian mining & oil firms who are equally guilty and have their fetid hands tainted with Burmese blood as well. Their profits are blood money and will soon curse their investors and the nations they betray. Funny part is the fact its only a hand full of people in all reality.
Your Devil’s Advocate
Men, women and children have continued to be slaughtered by the Burmese government over the past 1 ½ years with barely a peep from the western media. Thousands of people have been displaced and killed in relative secrecy as government troops murdered, raped and pillaged this region of Burma with no end in sight. The primary reason is the fact Kachin State is a resource rich cornucopia of oil, gas, gold, uranium, gem stones of every kind and the exalted rare earth minerals. Is this trip all about the money Mr. President? Or are you going to make REAL history and make a concerted effort to stop the blood shed in ALL ethnic regions, including Kachin State? more »
With news President Barack Obama is headed to Burma the Burmese ask, “Will Barack Obama be a liberator or continue to ignore the genocide being committed in Kachin State?” The crisis in Rakhine State has gotten all the media attention with a tumultuous global response while Burma’s secret war in Kachin State has received little attention at all. Thein Sein’s government continues to grab land from citizens and farmers to accommodate western development interests. Will Obama address this atrocity as well? Don’t forget the over 600 political prisoners Than Shwe continues to torture in secret in an effort to break their spirits and their will. more »
Burma’s President Their Sein and Parliamentarian Daw Aung San Suu Kyi traveled across America receiving accolades, awards and standing ovations for the strides Burma appears to have taken to foster democracy. Out of sight and out of the mainstream media’s eye Burmese troop have continued their onslaught against ethnic Kachin’s, raping and murdering as they advance towards Kachinland’s jade fields. With the war quietly out of sight the Burmese Army has also resorted to sexual depravity as a source of entertainment as well as population control. Who’s going to stop them and who is going to care? more »
With all the sugar coated news out of Burma you’d think all is well within this budding democracy but in all actuality nothing could be further from the truth. Pretty speeches, gala events and golden placards can not erase the fact Burma is in the midst of an epic human tragedy. Forgotten by the western media and politicians alike the people of Kachin State are left to fend for themselves as winter approaches. more »
There is no question Than Shwe continues to rule Burma with an iron fist. Only difference is he is hidden in Nay Pi Daw, out of sight, out of mind. Though President Their Sein ordered a stop to hostilities in Kachin State his request was ignored. The Tatmadaw does not take orders from civilians regardless if they were retired generals such as the case of President Their Sein. Burma’s duel government is a sham but a blessing to corporations who’ve skirted sanctions for decades. more »
Contrary to popular belief Technology as we know it will eventually be sporadic if not totally out of service as we enter the new cycle. Empires built on foundations of sand will topple as mankind scrambles to rediscover older technologies just to sustain the basics of infrastructure. In the meantime pandemonium will replace civil society as fortunes are lost and there is nothing in the universe that will alter this destiny. I don’t think it will be forever but it will be long enough to completely alter mankind’s fetid journey. In essence we will reap what we have sown and it’s not going to be pretty.
As we listen to feel good speeches and news about dignitaries from every planet in the universe clamoring to eat ngapi with Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, civil war continues to rage in Kachin State. People are dying and cities are being shelled by Burmese heavy artillery. Citizens of all ages are being shot at random and refugee centers are filling to capacity but oddly the humanitarian crisis is being ignored, completely. Then Senator Jim Webb praises the *“Historical Steps” the junta has taken. Surely he meant hysterical.
