More Detail on Military Reshuffle Emerges

By THE IRRAWADDY Monday, August 30, 2010

(Page 2 of 2)

Brig-Gen Maung Maung Aye, the former commandant of the General Staff College, becomes the commander of the Naypidaw command, and Brig-Gen Tun Than becomes the new regional commander for Rangoon.

According to military sources, all new officers are close to Than Shwe and are below the age of sixty—the maximum age for serving military and government officials in Burma.

It is assumed that Than Shwe remains as the head of government and will become president in the future government and that other retired officers would join the junta's proxy party, the Union Solidarity and Development Party, paving the way for the former senior military personnel to be elected as civilian representatives in the new government.

This is in addition to the fact that the constitution already guarantees the military a quarter of the seats in the parliament.

Below is an updated list of promotions:

My dear Ngal Hriang:
If Lt-Gen Myint Aung is Chinese as you asserted, then you'd better learn Chinese quick. Sooner rather than later, Chinese will be official language of Burma. Nice job Nga Than Shwe, Thanks!

Oh! Boy! How do we buy that?

Who knows it might be a 'Guided Leak" released by Than Shwe as part of his master game plan for '2010'. Eh?

Congratulation General,you are a lucky C-I-C and I believe you will save Burma one day. Like General Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono, be "a thinking general"

Medals awarded for killing the innocent citizens of Burma do not make this idiot a great man but a criminal. Than Shwe and all his stooges are all criminals.

This Chinese man is our commander in-chief? Now Burma is 100% ruled by Chinese.

I am pleased to announce that I am quitting the post from the most brutal military regime in the world to avoid being accused as a criminal by the international crime bureau. Frankly, I have not been directly involved in any of brutal crack-downs in any means and what so ever. Does it matter? Anyhow, my military pants are tight and uncomfortable as before so then I decided changing to “longyi” in which I can freely move around.
That is not the important fact. I really love my money … pardon me….my country. I think that this is a good time and opportunity to promote younger generation officers, naturally speaking about my relatives. This must be done before the general election, as I promised not long ago. Anyway, I’ve been lately struggling with today’s fast paced technological world. Frankly, I think that my intelligent agency has been deteriorating and slowly catching up with today’s technology. Some media has sadly been slipped through public.

Some of you may be concern as a new generation steps into the military posts. I certainly guarantee you that I will be solely responsible and watching over them. There is clear evidence that I am capable of planning and building a brand new capital under my leadership within in short time. My next goal is to rank as one of the top billionaires in Magazine. But then I realize that I’ll never be in there with my military uniform and military salaries. I don’t think I need to explain my post or duty. Just sit back, relax and don’t get involve in politics or do stupid things. You all will be just fine and the future will be for “US”, you know what I mean?

Thank you,
Mr. Millionaire Gold

This is the list of criminals from Burma. ASA and EU had already updated their list of Burmese criminals who fall under Visas ban list. This name will appear in School text books to teach future generations about the brutality of Military Fascism in Burma. It became obvious that the Junta had made the line up for new government. We will strive to reject the result of election at United Nations. Burmese must pull together to boycott the election.
