Burmese Junta Tends to Dominate Ethnic Groups For Its Own Purposes !
27 - Nov - 98
Rangoon Post - Burmese Junta Tends to Dominate Ethnic Groups And It
Own People For Its Own Purposes. The ethinicities that make up Burma,
China ,etc. each strive for its own progress in its own way, but the
Burmese Junta tend to dominate the others for the well-being of their
own interests and finances.
The Burmese Junta lives safe ,well fed while the Burmese people and
their own soldiers have little or no food. The non-burmese groups are
even worse off.
Lt. Gen. Khin Nyunt, first secretary of the SPDC, claims "nations do
not interfere in affairs of other nations and do not submit to
influences of others in their own internal affairs." is being two-faced
with this claim. He claims others shouldn't interfere, but the military
tatmadaw has been influencing and attempting to control NON-Burmese
areas for over 30 years. Thailand's former Ayutthaya, the Khmer region,
former kings within the Region of Burma, Laos, et.al. all have tried to
invade, control and influence the surrounding contries for centuries.
If Ne Win and the Tatamadaw never invaded and tried to control the
ethnic regions, many of the problems wouldn't exist and some, such as
the drug trade would exist to a much samller degree because of the
Kuomintang's roots in and near northern Burma.
If the SPDC is truly trying to wipe-out the legacy of colonialism,
then why do they continue to colonise and remove the ethnic groups just
as the Han dominated Chinese government has been doing for centuries ?

opening of a special course for basic education teachers
Khin Nyunt, who is also chairman of the Education
Committee, said: "The majority of the nations of the world,
inclusive of Myanmar, do not interfere in affairs of other
nations and do not submit to influences of others in their
"As members of the comity of world nations, they maintain
friendly relations among themselves on the basis of equality
and build their own nations relying on their own resources,"
"That is the practice truly as a sovereign state in accord
Myanmar's independent and active foreign policy, freely
exercising its legitimate right to build our own nation
on our own resources in conformity with traditions of our
country and nationality, culture and customs, to promote the
interests of our own country and our own nationality," he
He said Myanmar had lagged behind in development
because of armed insurgency, so the SPDC has been wiping
out the legacy of colonialism and carrying out
works with momentum.

groups in the country have made peace with the

retain their weapons for "self-protection and area-defense."
