All human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights. They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood.

(Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in Burmese)

No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile.

Article 9:

Those who have the kindness of benefit for others

For the sake of living beings, do not relax their powers.

Though these holy beings bear a heavy burden,

They never put it down and dwell in discouragement.

*the Great Chariot Sutra*

Burma is known as a golden land made of several ranges (or ‘Yoma’ in Burmese) where thousands of tribal memories, wisdoms, religions, cultures and beauties of plants and animals dwell. The rivers, all of them are indeed important to the people and other existences, snake through these beautiful mountainous regions and flow from the north to the south where Indian Ocean is. The peoples, Burma has 103 ethnics, all of them used to be really generous and all they knew was to give.

Since the modern day’s dictators have systematically destroyed, now the golden land is famous for its narcotic trades, refugees, migrant workers and various atrocities and sufferings.

One day, we’ll be free again and the land will be again famous for its beauty.

Kosovo's Independence

I don't feel any particular the way Kosovo became independent. This was predicted even though I wasn't so sure. There was no choice as there was no solution reached. I don't know what the Serb leaders offered the Kosovans physically and as promises for peace and developments but I believe the Kosovans wanted their independence anyway and this is their only choice. The war against the Kosovan Albanians made the two communities never to reconcile as a country.

The problem was Russia's involvement in the case. The Serbs shouldn't have sought Russia's vocal aid. Russia has been completely on the opposite side of the west and has been playing political games in its own sake in the region and in the world. As Russia has been seeking attention or a fresh influence in the world by siding with the wrong people, such as dictators, the free world would trust it never. The steps of Russia have been so far clear in the recent political arenas in the region and in Asia. It has the only intention - to do the opposite against the west whether to do the right thing or the wrong. This has been discredited it so far. Right now, Russia is too selfish and untrustworthy. I don't think the Russian leaders care too much about this or they wouldn't keep this sitution as it is.

Nobody dares to trust the future without independence and this happened with East Timor and Ache too. If there wasn't tsunami that claimed hundred of thousands of victims, Ache could be still in war.

I believe it's the right choice that the Kosovans have taken even though this is truely unfair to the Kosovan Serbs.
