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 »
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 »
As the call for democracy continues to gain momentum throughout Burma, it is clear Than Shwe’s scheme to legitimize Burma is back firing for he is loosing control. The people of Burma are becoming empowered like never before and Than Shwe’s efforts to break Burma’s spirit failed. The spirit of democracy did not disappear like he thought; it was buried beyond his reach in the hearts of the people. Soon he and his thugs will resume the campaign of divide and conquer.
As a parent of a commando with other relatives in the military I find it absolutely appalling and down right stupid for religious leaders and Politicians to promote the hatred of Muslims. What the hell are these mindless boneheads thinking in the first place? Do these dolts realize our allies are Muslims and our kid’s lives depend on this alliance to stay alive??? Dare I mention all the Christians in Muslim Countries that are feeling the wrath of mindless loud mouth Muslim haters in America? How far beyond stupid is that?
