Burma: US Official P J Crowley, Open Mouth Insert Foot.

Posted in Asia with tags Burma, John William Yettaw, Mecchadihtti Than Shwe, Myanmar, P.J. Crowley, Senator Jim Webb, Tatmadaw, Thein Sein on May 5, 2010 by buffalohair

You have to wonder where this and other US political officials get their intelligence reports since it is obvious their sources are either woefully misinformed or are working directly for the junta. It is common knowledge Burma’s generals are under orders to fake retirement in order to play the 2010 Election charade in an attempt to legitimize the criminal regime of Than Shwe. Where were these politicians in 1990 when a landslide victory by the opposition elected Daw Aung San Suu Kyi? Why all of a sudden do these misinformed politicians want to open their mouths without knowing or caring for the real facts? How far beyond stupid is that?

Senator Jim Webb made an almost unforgivable error when he went to Burma to free the “Bonehead of the Lake” John William Yettaw. Then Webb horribly misquoted Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and even raised her ire when he went on to bad mouth China in her presents. Don’t get me wrong, Jim is a decorated Viet Nam veteran and has done many good things within his constituency but his trip to “save” a common criminal who should have spent time in jail was not one of them. It became clear he was totally misled by his intelligence sources. The fact about “Yettaw’s Bogus Adventure” spelled a very dark and calculated plot by the junta to keep Daw Aung San Suu Kyi out of the political arena. Yettaw succeeded in ruining any chance the National League for Democracy and the people of Burma had for reconciliation.
Senator Webb was merely a patsy and ultimately the fall guy for this horrific misadventure. Now J.P. Crowley has inadvertently taken up the reigns on behalf of the junta to legitimize a bogus election and a criminal regime. What are you thinking?


Legitimizing the election in light of all the junta chicanery and rigging of the pending election should have been a major red flag for any US politician provided they were paying attention. The obvious “retirement” of Thein Sein and other generals should have spelled the true nature of the election. The junta will maintain control regardless of who wins the election and that is the bottom line. J.P. Crowley only fanned the flames of legitimizing not only the election but also the criminal regime of Burma with his banter about the positive side to the general’s retirement. Rather than douse a fire with water he dumped a bucket of gasoline on raging flames. You must wonder what these politicos are thinking but maybe someone should get him a subscription to the Irrawaddy, Mizzima or other Burmese publications so they can get their facts straight. Even I have people on the ground inside of Burma that either verify or disclaim news stories that reach the west. Fact is I have them all over the country. Surely a US Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs would have sources as well. Or does this spell a much darker agenda? One thing is for sure, the fate of Burma rests on the shoulders of her people since it is obvious the outside world is impotent at this juncture, as usual. Petitions, sanctions, letters of disdain and everything else nations and groups have done resulted in absolute failure. Like it or not Burma has nothing, zilch, nada to show for all these fruitless efforts and that’s the bottom line. The struggle for Burma’s liberation is not about feel good speeches and petitions. The people of Burma head and read about them ad nasueam already.

Only from within Burma and surprisingly the Tatmadaw will salvation come because this is Burma’s destiny. When she wins back her nation from the scurrilous thugs who’ve tortured, raped and murdered their own people I hope she remembers all the other people who’ve betrayed her in her hour of need. Burma’s liberation is just around the corner and there is no force that can stop the inevitable collapse of Than Shwe’s criminal regime. Not even the words of a misguided politician.

Than Shwe Dynasty Collapsing, From Within
Posted in Asia with tags Burma, China, Tatmadaw, Mecchadihtti Than Shwe, Myanmar, Gen. Than Shwe, Chinese on April 23, 2010 by buffalohair

With the majority of the Tatmadaw sickened by the criminal regime of Burma it is clear they vastly outnumber Than Shwe’s criminal ruling class. The regime came full circle and has begun to feed on their own. Members of Than Shwe’s loyal inner circle are making false claims against fellow generals and commanders in an effort to garner favor and a piece of Burma’s assets. Sadly for Than Shwe, even within his inner circle there is division with people waiting for him to die. With trust and loyalty relegated to an absolute minority of the military it is obvious they are totally outnumbered. The complete collapse of the Than Shwe dynasty would have the unbridled support of both the people of Burma and 90% of the military.


There would be resistance from corrupt businessmen, drug dealers and criminals Than Shwe supported over the years for spying and murdering but they have been clearly identified by the people of Burma. The “snitch” rickshaw drivers who spied for Than Shwe are known by the surviving victims they’ve betrayed. People who’ve languished in finery while others suffered have become marked for revenge since the people remember what they did during Than Shwe’s reign. Proponents of Than Shwe mandates have shown where their loyalties lay long ago and these ranks include religious figures from Christians, Muslims and Buddhists for they were Than Shwe agents in disguise all along. They simply played both sides for privilege, personal comfort and financial gain. Only those who’ve betrayed their fellow countrymen were given a taste of luxury and their days are numbered as well. The bogus 2010 election proposal had a positive effect since it identified those who side with Than Shwe.


Than Shwe has continued a secret investigation to identify anyone within his ranks who could pose a threat to his regime. Again, it is comical since he continues to shuffle and reshuffle his inner circle as well as pose more restrictions on his own generals and commanders. The joke is on him since there is no escaping his destiny for he has already been betrayed by some of his key operatives within his inner circle. Generals and commanders from all quarters of Burma have already spoken of amnesty whence the inevitable international tribunal comes to pass. They are eager to testify and want to clear their conscience. Than Shwe’s only alternative to facing a trial for crimes against humanity is death before he is arrested. Chances are he will choose the coward’s way out, suicide. When it all comes down to it, he will leave his family and allies to fend for themselves.


Than Shwe’s futile attempts to keep people at odds with one another via his series of bombings backfired dismally. He sacrificed his own officers in the process showing assassins he would kill them if needed to legitimize his criminal acts. The murder of Chinese workers did not bode well with China either. Others who were aware of Than Shwe’s elaborate plot where horrified by their leaders callous act as well. Enough people have come to realize Than Shwe would stoop to any level to achieve his personal goals and now they fear for their own mortality. Ironically it is these criminal acts against the Tatmadaw and allies that has tipped the scale against his criminal regime by his once staunch supporters and officers. The internal strife that has festered within his Tatmadaw has gone beyond the point of no return. He has placed himself in a lose, lose situation since he made many promises over the years to his inner circle and only kept a fraction of them to the chagrin of his generals. Tay Za and his ilk have become marked men for the seed of jealousy has blossomed into hatred and revenge. In fact everyone Than Shwe blessed with riches has become targets for death from a multitude of sources within the military. Than Shwe’s “Midas Touch” has become the mark of scorn and death. Foolishly supporters still flaunt their alliance with Than Shwe and unwittingly marked themselves for retribution.


It is laughable to note much of the bloodshed that will soon transpire will be from within the military as they reign revenge on those Than Shwe favored. What comes around goes around and I don’t have sympathy for them since they made a deal with the Devil and it is time to repay the debt, with interest. Than Shwe’s contract with evil is already reaping dividends and there is nothing he can do to stop his destiny. The price for betrayal is betrayal and as the ole saying goes, and eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

Than Shwe Blames Others in Bombing but Fools No One.
Posted in Asia with tags Burma, Chinese, Earth Changes, Kachin, Mecchadihtti Than Shwe, Myanmar, Myitsone Dam, Tatmadaw, Thingyan, Time of Change on April 22, 2010 by buffalohair

Likened to leaving your drivers license and identification card at a crime scene Gen. Than Shwe’s goons used military ordinance to bomb and kill civilians at the Myitsone dam project and during the Thingyan Celebration. Than Shwe’s flagrant attempt to taint the relationship between the Kachin and Chinese backfired and only intensified the bond between the two. Revenge for not attending the junta sponsored celebration was the normal kneejerk response the junta was infamous for. If it were not for the shameful loss of life these events would be a hilarious misadventures featured on “America’s Dumbest Criminals”. Now you can add buffoonery to the list of antics perpetrated by these lackluster criminals of South Asia. Like they say, “Stupid is as stupid does”


Frantic to show face Than Shwe has been filling media outlets with propaganda and in some cases news stories contradicted each other in his futile attempt to focus blame on others. Innocent people were arrested in Than Shwe’s cover-up operation with more arrests to come in the future. But the reality of what happened was common knowledge almost from the moment of the first explosion. Than Shwe has become a victim of habit and for the Burmese population this series of bombings was just another cheap tactic to keep people artificially at odds with one another. Just a day in the lives of the innocent people held in bondage for the crime of being born during Than Shwe’s tenure. How far beyond stupid is that?


Than Shwe is not the sharpest knife in the drawer but this latest bombing antic was stupid even by his standards. The lack of cunning and calculation which used to be his signature revealed the desperation and fear he truly possesses at this juncture. The plot was not well thought out since the use of military ordinance clearly identifying him and his thugs. With everyone in the pro democracy movement under close surveillance where even their bowel movements are recorded gathering military weapons would have met dire consequences at the onset. But to blame pro democracy groups outside of the country was purely an act of a mentally disturbed man.  Maybe the disease he is dying from is already taking its toll on his thought processes. Small wonder his generals are waiting for him to die. They will not follow his orders whence he is dead no matter how many of Burma’s assets he gives away in his feeble efforts to buy protection for his loved ones.


Apparently the stars are not going his way since omen after omen foretell of much more dire consequences that lay in store for Generalissimo Than Shwe, his family and Burma’s criminal regime. He may be able to lie and murder people on Earth but he can’t lie nor impress the spirits on the other side who eagerly awaits his arrival. In fact whence he crosses over he will be stripped of everything and will be like a babe in the woods, alone, vulnerable and ripe for exploitation. The price he will pay will be an eternity of rape and horrific suffering. Squeal like pig Than Shwe. Everything comes full circle and Than Shwe has only begun his downward spiral. But like most happy endings he will be far from alone since spirits are also waiting for his cronies and allies who’ve financed his reign of terror.


As for Than Shwe’s family, forget about it paisan for they are toast almost from the time his heart stops beating. The rage felt by the Tatmadaw for his punk kids and his seedy bride guarantee their days are numbered as well. Earth Changes will reward not only Than Shwe but other bogus politicians who’ve preyed on their citizens for material wealth. Unlike the world who continues to ignore Burma as well as their nuclear program the Time of Change will distribute retribution to every corner of the globe. Than Shwe like other leaders unwittingly wrote the final chapter in the book of the dead and soon their blood will mingle with the sewage from which they came.


I smell ngapi, guess that means its dinner time. Hope they made me some tea leaf salad. Don’t you just love a happy ending?

Posted in Asia with tags Burma 2010 Election, China, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Mecchadihtti Than Shwe, UN Sanctions, Xi Jinping on December 26, 2009 by buffalohair

The ball is still in General Than Shwe’s court when it comes to beginning the process of reconciliation. The steps required have been well documented and the terms were quite simple according to the “Shwe-Gone-Daing” declaration;

1. Release all political prisoners
2. Review the 2008 Constitution
3. Reopen NLD and ethnic nationalities offices
4. Recognize 1990 election result
5. Establish political dialogue

At the very minimum the release of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and the political prisoners to establish a true dialogue would show that the junta was sincere. Anything short of this spells just another round of rhetoric and excuses from the regime. It would also mean the dialogue that has already transpired from world leaders was nothing more than feel good lip service buying critical time Than Shwe needed to pull off the bogus election in the first place. Is this all nothing but another elaborate scheme?

The notion the world is looking hopefully towards a positive outcome from the sham election indicates Than Shwe won the first critical battle in legitimizing his criminal regime. The world bought into the sham election, that is a given. In essence the world sided with Than Shwe in rejecting the will of the Burmese people by ignoring the election results of 1990, an election sponsored by Than Shwe yet not honored because he lost overwhelmingly.

The world as a whole has become enablers for a grotesquely barbaric criminal regime who continues to murder and rape its own citizens. With good reason since the world has blood on their hands as well. With major nations of the free would still vested in Burma the notion sanctions had a chance to succeed is simply preposterous. The United Nations has proven to be hopelessly corrupt with its merry band of thugs who pander to the whims of the World Trade Organization and Than Shwe. Ban Ki-moon and his Korean connection boasts about sanctions and types up letters of disdain yet his Korean business associates continue to prosper on the backs of an enslaved nation.

On a positive note *China did step up to the plate since China’s Vice President Xi Jinping was quoted telling Than Shwe China wanted “  political stability, economic development and national reconciliation”. Further VP Xi Jinping stated;

“China believes the Myanmar side would settle the relevant problems through peaceful ways such as dialogues and consultation so as to guarantee the stability in its border area with China,”

That would be real spiffy if China is sincere. Has China become an enabler for Than Shwe with critical lip service designed to show face to a world of consumers? After all, China’s Achilles Tendon is the international consumer for without them their economy would surely falter sending China spiraling downward. Their economy is much frailer than they allude to and internal strife is at the red dragon’s door step. China is also turning into a desert from mismanagement of its soil, another Achilles Tendon? With the consuming world more aware of China’s human rights violations their continued support for a wholesale butcher would be unlikely. China has become codependent and any disruption in commerce would be devastating.

The average consumer has become isolated from their leadership in a world that has begun colonizing via Globalization. Greed prevails where humanity once stood as profiteers find ways to skirt sanctions in Burma but it is still the consumer who holds the weapon of economic mass destruction, the all mighty dollar. As citizens of the world connect the dots and identify the common enemy, corrupt politicians, China will undoubtedly be in the crosshairs as well since jobs and industries were handed to China by these politicos to the chagrin of the consumers around the planet. The end result will be sanctions imposed by the consuming public crippling China’s once bustling economy since governments have done nothing. Awareness of China’s total disregard for human rights is growing at a lightening pace. Burma and Than Shwe inadvertently placed China and her secrets under the microscope for all to see and discern. If China were to broker true reconciliation and dialogue in earnest this would ease some of the pressure from the purchasing public. If China is playing a charade to assist Than Shwe the price will be paid at the check out counter, were the true economical battle is being fought. Just remember that every dollar not spent on Chinese goods by individuals will make a difference. This axiom will work on international corporations who also leech off the public.

With commercial properties pending foreclosure around the world the dynamic of this financial disaster will far out shadow the mortgage crisis, there is no question. The next financial disaster is looming just around the corner and this will be China’s death nil since it will be easy to write Chinese goods off for a host of valid reason. Burma will just be the last straw. If all the facts were known, China has caused great harm to Indigenous populations around the globe as it is. Thanks to Than Shwe China has become vulnerable since he opened the flood gates of public opinion and this will surely have negatively effect in China’s cash flow.

Small wonder VP Xi Jinping smacked Than Shwe up side the head and told him to get his act together. There is more at stake than Than Shwe’s xenophobic ego. Than Shwe’s actions will directly affect China’s booming yet frail economy. I’ve already excluded over $500 in Chinese and select Korean goods in one month. And it was not hard since I bought better quality merchandise though a bit more spendy but you get what you pay for eh. Others are following suite and soon there will be more as People Power Sanctions snowballs around the globe. Its all about the money and it is time to fight fire with fire. If China is not careful their goods will rot on shelves in every store on the Earth. And China will have General Than Shwe to thank for the notoriety.

Than Shwe’s Ultimatum
 
Posted in Asia with tags 2009, Buddhist Monks, Burma, Oct 2, Than Shwe on September 7, 2009 by buffalohair

Oct 2

October 2nd has become the iconic day of reckoning for General Than Shwe of Burma. According to sources within Burma Than Shwe has until 12 noon on October 2, 2009 to make a formal apology for the incarceration, beating and murder of Buddhist monks during a peaceful demonstration. If he refuses he will be excommunicated from the Buddhist faith. In essence Than Shwe will be stripped of his most powerful weapon in keeping a nation divided, religion. If he is no longer a Buddhist he can no longer purport the need to rape and murder Christians under the banner of Buddhism.

Without Buddhism to hide behind he will have to find a new excuse for his continued campaign of Burmanization and the wholesale slaughter of all ethnic minorities in Burma. It still astounds the imagination how he managed to justify torture, rape and murder then claim to be Buddhist in the first place. But with a woefully inept United Nations and the continued impotent response from the so called free world, Than Shwe continues his exercise in eugenics unabated. Many corporate controlled media groups have also turned a deaf ear on the plight of Burma for the most part as well.

The October 2nd deadline was proclaimed by the monks yet very little has been mentioned about it in the mainstream press. In the meantime the Burmese military has been beefing up its forces “just in case” of a new and more powerful uprising. Timing is everything since Than Shwe has opened up the battlement lines to the north and has declared war on ceasefire groups who refuse to be border cops. It’s ironic that Senator Jim “One World Order” Webb was making nice with Than Shwe while his goons advanced on Kokang and other ethnic groups. He should have taken a stroll in one of the many under supplied and over filled refugee centers along the border, provided they are not being shelled by the Burmese military.

With the help of the “liars press” bold faced lies about the meeting circulated around the world as Webb made libelous statements about Daw Aung Suu Kyi. John “the moron” Yettaw made grandiose and thinly veiled lies about his encounter with Aung Suu Kyi then made public his book writing aspirations. I can see the book store now, protesters all around with posters and chants. Then there is John making a hasty retreat out the back door. Daw Aung Suu Kyi has long since decried the false and lascivious statements the dumb duo made. As far as Burma’s democracy was concerned, Jim’s visit was a giant step backward. Yettaw’s visit was catastrophic but “with no regrets”, in his words.

With Daewoo investing billions in Burma as of this writing it is clear the worldwide corporate agenda quietly moved forward. Burma, locked in the throws of indentured servitude, continues to be raped by outsiders. Than Shwe betrayed Burma sold her to the corporate world, the ultimate money laundering scheme. Globalization is colonization on a planetary scale and Burma is to rich in natural resources to ignore. It is obvious the fate of Burma has been determined by others. Than Shwe is just a pawn and a scapegoat to the ones who bought him years ago. In all reality sanctions have not been honored from the corporate world. Merger after merger internationally has laced a web of unscrupulously divisive criminals who’ve also managed to bypass U.S. monopoly laws.


Of the top 100 economies of the world at least half are corporations. Imagine corporations with a GDP larger then 80% of the nations of the world. One day you will drive around in a cute Nano by Tata Motors of India. Just don’t forget that Tata Motors is building a facility in Burma for the sole purpose of building medium to heavy trucks for Burma’s Military. The cute little Nano would be soaked in human blood and the suffering of an enslaved nation. The corporate web is all encompassing though.
 Two English institutions, Land Rover and Jaguar, now share the tainted resume’ in epic human carnage for Tata Motors is their parent company. From Mrs. Beasley’s Cookies to that cool Daewoo big screen TV, corporations doing business with Than Shwe stock our shelves. So when people say sanctions have not worked it’s because they were not enforced in earnest in the first place. In our complacency we’ve become unwitting benefactors of tyranny not only in Burma, but around the world. Lusting for the cheapest price we forget the price that is paid in human suffering.


The world has done nothing to ease Burma’s pain. The cowardly United Nations has exercised selective justice and all but ignored Burma year after year. Feel good speeches, fruitless visits and spineless sanctions have bought the people of Burma nothing but more broken promises. Now the monks of Burma have made their position known as they take destiny into their own hands. Than Shwe must apologies to the Buddhist Monks for the cruel treatment and murder of holy people from a faith he proclaims to be. He has until October 2nd of 2009 at 12 noon Rangoon time. If he ignores this request he will be excommunicated from all of Buddhism. In turn the junta has increased surveillance and security around monasteries and Buddhist enclaves across the country. The fused has been lit as a nation under siege braces for the future. And the world is oblivious.
