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.

Cluster Bomb Banned?

111 nations agreed to ban cluster bombs. Thanks a lot.

Well, it hasn't solved real problems. Many countries will keep producing and using them anyway. These bombs are also very effective strategically. Nobody wants to deny it. And these countries are allowed to fight alongside with the countries that use these bombs. As they cannot stop the future of the bombs, this success is just half-grown, I guess.

I rather suggest the world to agree to put a device inside every tiny bomb. This device must cause the bomb to explode itself. And there will be no unexploded bombs scattering and ambushing to kill civilians.

I guess this tiny device might be a dangerous issue in handling the bombs; however, it must be safer than when they’re hidden around nearby population.

Anyway, I have to leave it in the hands of experts.
