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.

Final Episode?

Certainly the junta is not a isolationist as it’s responding directly to the current international view and activity. It’s just playing its own hopeless game as hopelessist of its own hopelessism based on how people seeing it, treating it and condemning it - it‘s of course because it’s led by the 21st C greatest hopeless loser.

This is its latest mockery:
We all know that the people who are affected by the cyclone are expecting the world if they’d get help. The people know they can’t get any help from the junta so they certainly not expecting from it. At the same time, the junta was expecting 11 billions dollars. And it didn’t get it. Also the world was informed how the people have been - indicating this is not the time for reconstruction but still for rescuing jobs.
And now they are leaving the camps toward their grave yards - the destroyed delta.

We cannot know how Mr. Ban dealt with Than Shwe. We cannot know what they discussed and agreed about - and what Than Shwe did really ask. At least the UN is safe for now. We cannot blame anybody but the that he couldn’t persuade the donors to donate Than Shwe - the 11 billions dollar ransom. Worse, Mr. Ban hurt him how it pains most: “it’s enough for now!” so he has to show in whose hand the Burmese people really are - again. Not in the hand of the UN, not of the international community, not of kamma (karma), but …

Being hostages, as they’re all in the same ship heading toward the final episode of the show in the sea of hopelessism as Captain Than Shwe with his entire army laughing at them, it seems they’re going to doom.

Than Shwe is going to hell. But it’s very clear that he wants to take the whole ship with him.

Hopefully, the ship would hit a rock and break into pieces before it goes under. Hopefully, some lucky ones would reach large pieces of debris floating toward some lands. We can start to pray even by now that the currents would take them to these lands.

We know Than Shwe is a loser.

But if we are ever to be defeated by him again in the very grip of this disaster …
