Uneven development stifling Myanmar

Uneven development stifling Myanmar Global Times | 2013-12-19 By Marie Lall

Anyone arriving today at Mingaladon Airport and driving toward the center of Yangon would find it hard to imagine that just a few years ago Myanmar was an isolated country – poor, underdeveloped and labeled by the US as an “outpost of tyranny.”

At the start of the 21st century there were few cars on the roads. Taxis at that time used to be over a decade old, often with sagging seats and doors that did not shut properly. As things started to change around 2005, there were more cars and the first few mobile phones had made an appearance.

Why Michelle Obama changed places with her husband?

Why Michelle Obama changed places with her husband?

In photos published from the funeral of former South African President Nelson Mandela, it appears that US President Obama had an amusing conversation, perhaps too much considering the event, with the head of the Danish government. The one who didn’t approve was First Lady Michelle Obama, who took care to switch places with her husband and separate the two.

As U Thein sein Government is bias against Muslims and there is rise of Buddhist Terrorism, Muslims of Myanmar need UNSC to invoke R 2 P

November 16, 2013

Instead of OIC…Actually, international peace-keeping forces like the ones in Kosovo would be more helpful in preventing further violence. (I took the idea from Dr David Law, who had experience in serving the US Military Medical Group in Kosovo at that time.

Yesterday’s at the Anti-OIC protest the Monks were given FREE HAND by Thein Sein‘s Government in contrast to the heavy handed handling of Anti-Copper-mine protest shows that the Myanmar Government is practicing double standard. And when we look at the arrest and two years’ sentence on a Muslim who took out the 969 sticker from the parked motor-bike compared to uninhibited protest by Monks insulting Islam, U Thein Sein Government is not neutral but bias. In addition to that, around the last Edd few Buddhist Terrorists were caught plotting to incite Anti-Muslim Riots by bombing of Shwedagone and other pagodas. Yesterday Rakhine Buddhist Terrorists were caught with ammunition to bomb Masjids. …As Bama Buddhists and Rakhine Buddhists are also against OIC…it is best to provoke R 2 P at UNSC.


ISLAM will definitely flourish in Myanmar till the END of the WORLD, In Sya Allah!

And…allow me to add…

Although Myanmar Military, Myanmar Gov, 969 ultra-nationalist monks, Bamas and Rakhines are MAJORITY and powerful, they would not be able to annihilate Muslims of Myanmar.

ISLAM will definitely flourish in Myanmar till the END of the WORLD, In Sya Allah!

“Ethnocracy” not Democracy is practiced in Myanmar

November 10, 2013

“Ethnocracy” not Democracy is practiced in Myanmar.

The Lady doth protest too seldom

This ethno-nationalism is more likely to lead to a sort of “ethnocracy” than to a real democracy.

And it is important to remember that it has led to catastrophic outcomes in many other places (the former Yugoslavia, Rwanda, Nazi Germany …), and it is particularly dangerous in a country with as much diversity as Burma.

Bama Government leaders should shed their BIG BROTHER MENTALITY on its Minority Nationals

Since the publication of Nineteen Eighty-Four the phrase “Big Brother” has come into common use to describe any prying or overly-controlling authority figure, and attempts by government to increase surveillance.

Metamorphosing of Democratic Icon Daw Aung San Suu Kyi into Bigot Dictator?

Please read my article in Burma Digest using the Pseudonym SHWE BA  and shared in my San Oo Aung blog

Myanmar Folk Tale: Metamorphosis of Saviors into Monsters

Once upon a time, long long time ago, there was a village in a far away remote area of Burma called, let’s say, Shwe Bama village. Because of the constant disturbances of the wild beast, the villagers were wishing, praying and waiting for a hero to fight and kill the beast and to liberate them.

One day a prince came to the village and offered his self-less humanitarian voluntary service for the liberation of the village. The prince fought and successfully killed the beast, so the villagers thanked him and offered all the rewards including the right to rule their village. But later the kindhearted, handsome and noble prince surprisingly disappeared from the village. Worse of all, there also suddenly appeared a new ogre (giant) in the forest near the village. So the villagers were very sad and just prayed and wished for another warrior to help them.
