Kyi May Kaung's comment on Ko Aung Zaw's "Buddhist" thugs make a comeback -

in Irrawaddy Magazine:

See the inverted commas in the title? 

I agree with Ko Aung Zaw -- this has "military plot" written all over it - "Let them want democracy, they will have to call in army to restore order." 

Anyone know if Meikhtila is a predominantly NLD town?  I know in Helsinki in 2008, when we last met, Ko Aung Zaw suggested that in the Nargis obstruction of cyclone aid, it was suspected that the regime wished to punish the Delta Karen -

These incidents are also to show the world, people, that the army can do what it likes - security standing by is also a trademark - until final shootings - see 1962, 1970s U Thant episode, 1988, 2007, list goes one -

Ko Aung Zaw, this time you have really told the Truth - now what? 

Also folks, I don't know if you have seen these, but there are items going around the Internet about how bad the gold merchant couple were, complete with photos of the gold bracelets involved.  Now who would have these but?? - 

According to a reliable source, this couple, perhaps junta agents or mercenaries, have already been "fed to the mob".

There's also someone named Tony Carlucci - who is writing that "Aung San Suu Kyi's Saffron Monks" are doing this.

I don't think people know that there are monks and there are monks, and in Burmese Buddhism anyone can put on a robe and take the vows for as short as 24 hours or a few days.  And there are many sects within the mainstream - Mandalay's Yahan Pyo were always militant - Anyone can buy a robe and shave his head - does not need to go into an ordination hall.

It is well known also that Ne Win Government wanted to control and register monks -

and also USDA (Union Solidarity Development Association) a. k. a. Hitlerite Brown Shirts - were active up to 2007, and 2008, and there is also Possessors of Strength (Swan Ahr Shin) -  and in 1988 they were called Lon Htein - so, one can't suppose that these have all been disbanded like lightning and all disappeared.

If it is any comfort to you, (poor comfort of course) Nazis remained under cover in W. Germany decades after Hitler committed suicide and Allied Armies marched in, and some were even in judiciary - this is well documented.

About 2009 I heard a rumor that Swan Ahr Shin leader/founder had been eliminated as he "knew too much.'

In 1988, after the clamp down or shoot down, Ms. Maureen Aung Thwin wrote in Foreign Affairs Magazine - "Once again the military has held things together."
