Why do Bamas FAILED TO DEMAND the British that YOU WANT the LAND ONLY not the people on that land

November 21, 2013

If you want to accuse Muslims as coming in with British Colonialism… Just think a little bit..
India and Burma was the British owned lands, they even combined into one once, they had the right to bring or shift any SERVANTS anywhere…
Why do Bama leaders FAILED TO DEMAND the ruling British before getting Independence that YOU WANT the LAND ONLY not the people on that land?
IF you dare to say that, definitely British would give you the Bama majority areas ONLY as Burma.

A class above, the heaven-born By Maung Zarni

Part 1: Evolution of a mafia state
Part 2: Fascist roots, rewritten histories

Military-controlled regimes in Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, have gone through various incarnations since General Ne Win‘s initial military takeover of 1962. With a favorable ideological climate, intellectual and academic justification, political and diplomatic recognition, and strong Western material support, the stage was set for Ne Win’s military, the Tatmadaw, to tread its chosen path without accountability – a course it has maintained to the present.

I hope and pray that Muslim group, whether inside or outside, would not take up arms against the Rakhine/Myanmar Government

January 2, 2013

I hope and pray that Muslims would not take arms as :
1/no other rebel group would form alliance except the notorious foreign groups,
2/no neighbor would allow base at their border,
3/could not hide in the same ethnic group population except Rohingyas (small group easily exposed)
4/and Bama army could target easily.

I wrote above because I got the information that: “မြတ္စလင္ေတြ လက္နက္ကိုင္ခ်င္သပ ဆိုရင္ ေနာက္ကြယ္ကေန လက္နက္တပ္ဆင္ေထာက္ပံ့ေပးမယ့္ ဂ်ဴးေတြ တစ္ပံုႀကီး..”

Of patriots and scoundrels

August 28, 2011

Edited and adapted to Burmanize from the, “Of patriots and scoundrels” by Hazlan Zakaria from Malaysiakini

‘Playing at war, as kids often do, I was always the one dying under the flag – defending my country to the last, the doomed protector keeping a nation safe by selfless action.’

I was, admittedly, a product of mass-produced patriotism, so common in the
movie industries’ endless parade of itinerant war movies. Growing up, I was
touched by Hollywood. Or as some would sometimes say, touched in the head. (more…)

Myanmar citizens need a second independence

August 20, 2011

Taken and edited to Burmanized the article from the Star, “The true meaning of independence” in PUTIK LADA By RAPHAEL KOK

We Myanmars may have freed ourselves of the colonial yoke but we are still lost, having taken more steps backward than forward, and are no closer to the Promised Land.

ONCE upon a time, we were a great empire. We ruled over the Assam, Manipur, Thailand, Lao, Cambodia and upper four states of Malaya. We travelled the seven seas and the world.

Patriotism beyond the military

November 12, 2010

Source_MKini: Patriotism beyond the military by Josh Hong
In the feudal era, soldiers played a pivotal role in territorial expansion for kings and emperors, to whom they swore their allegiance. The Treaty of Westphalia, signed in 1648, defined kingdoms by their rite of self-sovereignty and provided the rudimentary framework for nation-states. It also made it possible for the military to place greater loyalty on the state and the constitution rather than the ruler.
