Even if the "government" in power come to be by arresting the winning party
members, shooting men, women, childern and monks off the street, and keeping
the Nobel Laurate Aung San Suu Kyi, under house arrest for five years? Not to
mentioned atrocities commited on the Thai-Burma border and on Rohingyas.
What a bunch of lovely guys...
Don't worry...What I hear from the border is that Shu Maung, aka, Ne
Win is on his last leg and his resident is practically a hospital.
So - Khin Nyunt, aka, Four Khin Nyunt, has his days numbered.
