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?
