>BurmaNet has a report that the reasons for the fall of Kawmoora were 
>twofold.  First was the damage caused by the SLORC's artillary shells 
>with delayed fuses.  The shells would impact, digging into the ground 
>2-3 feet before exploding some time later.  The second reason, 
>according to this report, is that the Thai military had reached an 
>agreement with the SLORC to withdraw some distance from the riverbank, 
>allowing the Burmese troops to come through Thailand unhindered to 
>strike at the rear of Kawmoora.  It is worth mentioning that the source
