K.M. Kaung's comment left on Irrawaddy site ref. Aung Zaw on Dictators, Part II

Ko Aung Zaw is not "wrong" he just needs to cite where he got the facts from - That is standard practice now, even among fiction writers - I'm not saying he needs a Ph.D. or even an MA - Don't you know how to read?  - Don't put words in my mouth, I resent it - you who can't even put out your real name.

Ko Aung Zaw can one day get a honorary Ph.D. like Daw Suu for his journalism as she did for her political work - That's not the point here - the point is who said what, especially opinions, which are not facts.

According to Christine who first started the book published by Ben Rogers - Than Shwe won his wife, a widow, in a high army officer lotto - CW was doing the research for her MA thesis at a US Univ.  I am not giving her full name because I don't wish to, don't think it is wise.  I don't know if it is in Ben's book - go buy the book and read it.
