People Voices

Since unexpected visitor visited to Suu Kyi's house, lots of voices come out from around the world.

Oversea Burmese are calling for her release, Supported by world celebrities, a global net campaign kick off and Leaders from different countries are talking....still Talking!!

The talking will work or not I do not know since there is no ears.

I read the following "letters to the editor column', from the Bangkok newspaper name, "The Nation", dated on may 28, 2009.

"Junta is manipulating
Swimmer for its own ends

Re: Cash flow prevents a settlement in Burma". Letters, May 27.

One couldn't help feeling sorry for Michel Aung Thwin for having to dwell on a hypothetical explanation in order to put the Burmese junta in good stead.

While some individuals within the NGOs working on Burma might not like reconciliation or a softer tone from Hilary Clinton, I don't think the recent incident involving John Yettaw swimming to Aung San Suu Kyi's house is the handiwork of exiled opposition groups, as Michael Aung Thwin likes to suggest. I am more inclined to believe that the junta has plotted it.

It is evident that John Yettaw had entered Aung San Suu Kyi's compound in November last year: The incident was reported to the junta but the generals chose not to take any action at that time for reasons unknown. In fact, the reported potential security problem should have been taken care of, to avoid any such future intrusion.

One wonder, why junta, having full knowledge of Yettaw's intentional would allow him to re-enter the country and let him repeat the break-in, if it is not facilitating or permitting this scheme so that it can lock up Aung San Suu Kyi for more years.

As for the argument about a difference between a general election and Constituent assembly election, it is irrelevant. the NLD has the popular mandate to govern, while the junta has nothing to claim legitimacy except guns and oppression.
