Myanmar no longer safe?

Posted on: September 19, 2008

Today Myanmar news on internet shows::

Burma opposition offered guns by Islamists

ISLAMIC fundamentalists have offered weapons to Burma’s opposition groups with which to fight the ruling military junta.

And the resistance groups – which feel they have been left high and dry by the international community – are seriously considering the offer.

Former students, who were forced to flee Rangoon after pro-democracy protests in 1988 were violently put down, are said to be discussing the offer in the Thai border town of Mae Sot. Full article:::::::::

 

If you read above news article, I am sure you are not happy. Anti-government activists might take armed weapons from Muslims to fight back against Myanmar government. 

Consequences would be:

  1. Myanmar no longer safe or less safe
  2. US and EU will no longer recognise those anti-government groups with weapons
  3. Myanmar government will have more reasons to arrest more people.

Hmmmmmmmmm….

Ya, once you get Islamic militants involved a region is no longer safe. Peaeful struggle has gone long enough with little to no results so I think the opposition has no choice but to take arms.

You’re right Myanmar is no longer safe. No one can protect Myanmar from Islamic militants, not even USA. THe junta should’ve left he Burmese Muslims alone to avoid this.

I guess it’s history repeating itself, no military government can last forever.
