Hugs and Kisses for Suu Kyi

Regarding the article, "Gambari Meets NLD Executive Members, Including Suu Kyi" [February 2, 2009; URL: http://www2.irrawaddy.com/article.php?art_id=15047]:

Finally, Mr Gambari meets with Mrs Suu Kyi, If I were there I would shake hands with her and hug and kiss her. I am so glad she is doing much better. Burmese people like her and her kids and her husband are so nice.

Malaysian Muslims Lead the Way

Regarding the article, "Malaysian Muslims to Boycott Coca-Cola" [January 7, 2009; URL: http://www2.irrawaddy.com/article.php?art_id=1488]:

The Malaysian Muslims example should be followed by Muslims throughout the Muslim countries and the world.

Aye Tha Aung in Denial

Regarding the article, "Rohingya Face More Hardships at Home, Abroad" [February 2, 2009; URL: http://www2.irrawaddy.com/article.php?art_id=15046]:

No surprise. U Aye Tha Aung is a Rakhine. He is still sitting with the spirit of the 1942 massacre where hundreds of thousands of Rohingyas were murdered by his group. Although he is a senior member in the CRPP, his mentality is still same as Aye Chan and Aye Kyaw. It is very sad that after many years working in the CRPP, he is still the same as before. What is the difference between him and the SPDC? Aye Tha Aung, you want human rights for yourself, but at the same time your heart is full of hatred for other people. The whole world is showing their sympathy toward the unfortunate Rohingya boat people, but you and your friends and the SPDC are still in a state of denial. Remember, sooner or later, only truth will prevail.

Rakhine Politicians and the Rohingya

Regarding the article, "Rohingya Face More Hardships at Home, Abroad" [February 2, 2009; URL: http://www2.irrawaddy.com/article.php?art_id=15046]:

I am not surprised about the Rakhine politician U Aye Tha Aung's statement that the Rohingya are not among the ethnic groups in Burma. He is one of those Rakhine politicians who are instrumental to the Rohingya extermination policy of the SPDC and the suffering of the Rohingya. I would ask him if he knows his colleague, U Kyaw Min, who is a Rohingya member of the CRPP. Not only Rohingya, there are also hundreds of Rakhine from Arakan taking refuge in Bangladesh. His remark "How could they claim that they came from Burma, when in fact they come from Bangladesh?" is ridiculous. It seems that they are more interested in "Rohingya extermination" than the practice of democratic values and human rights for everyone in Burma.

Rohingyas Breeding to Colonize Burma

Regarding the article, "Rohingya Face More Hardships at Home, Abroad" [February 2, 2009; URL: http://www2.irrawaddy.com/article.php?art_id=15046]:

Two million Burmese migrants could not get citizenship in Thailand. So, why should the Chittagonian migrants receive citizenship in Burma? These Chittagonians increased their population exponentially with the practice of four wives per man over the last couple of decades. Within 50 years, the whole of Burma will be full of those Rohingya if their population, intrusion and colonization of Burma is not stopped. Most of them are poor and so are most Burmese. They might die in the sea along with the outcry of international communities. Lots of Burmese die in the sea in the fishing boats of Thais as well, but without any international outcry. Bad luck will fall upon Burma when these Chittagonians occupy the whole of Burma, and they will proceed to Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and even Vietnam. This was the Muslims’ demographic colonization. True or not? Consult a historian.


Ridiculous Referendum

The New Light of Myanmar repeatedly says the referendum is the decision of the majority; It would be beautiful if it were really true? The New Light of Myanmar is a junta mouthpiece. No newspaper in Burma is allowed to exist if they do not side with the generals. Information is not free; it is rudely biased. This alone is a human rights violation. As a matter of fact, the New Light of Myanmar editor has to publish what the junta says.

The primary reason for evicting the AIDS patients is that because it stinks. It was primarily labeled as SLORC Disease by the people because there was not a single AIDS patient during the Burmese Way to Socialism days not to mention before the coup in 1962. When the Junta opened up the country AIDS was the first person to come and stay. Perhaps they are conscious that it is the Junta’s disease.
