Myanmar war against minority Kachin Christians

January 28, 2013

“The first point that should be made is that there has been no
ceasefire and there is no ceasefire.. On the morning of Saturday the
19 of January at 6.00 a.m., the time the ceasefire was due to commence according to President Thein Sein‘s order, I stepped outside my house to be soon greeted with the sound of mortar and artillery fire.This was not sporadic small arms fire, but systematic heavy shelling from the Burma army.It was replicated elsewhere in Kachin State, but only a small fraction of it has been captured and transmitted by the media.I would therefore like to express grave concern at much of the international community’s gullible acceptance of the “ceasefire” which was either a deliberate grotesque hoax, or the result of a systemic failure in the Burma army chain of command to implement President
