Carnage In Mandalay: Army Killing Young Men

                  (Based on Burmese posts from the Facebook on June 22 & 23, 2021.) 

First high-ranking army officer killed by the Gen-Z.
The indiscriminate killings of young men on the streets of Mandalay, Burma’s second biggest city, began on early June-22 after the Gen-Z rebels calling themselves the Mandalay PDF (People Defense Force) shot and killed a high-ranking army staff officer and his escort.

G-1 Leiutenant-Colonel Aung Myo Kyaw of Mandalay-based Middle Regional Command (La-Pa-Kha) was killed when he and his small escort stupidly visited and knocked the door of a boarding house or a student dormitory in Mandalay’s Chan-mya-thar-zan Ward in the early morning of June-22.

Apparently tipped off by an informer the colonel and his small group of soldiers were just checking out the hostel for some Gen-Z returnees from the border jungles without expecting a heavily-armed unit of Gen-Z rebels there. The Gen-Z rebels saw them and immediately fired at them, killing the colonel and all his men.

NLD’s Assassination Campaign Raging In Burma!

                 (Based on Burmese posts from the FACEBOOK in May & June, 2021.) 

A Gen-Z assassin shot dead by cops.
Raging NLD’s assassination campaign has been killing hundreds of NON-CDM school teachers and local civilian administrators and rival parliamentarians all over Burma.

The Gen-Z assassins are coming back into Proper-Burma after receiving basic military training and intensive bomb-making lessons from the ethnic insurgents in the border jungles.

Now they are actively bombing the soft targets mainly the schools and local administrative offices and at the same time assassinating the school teachers and local civilian administrators and government nurses.

At about 10 am on June-8, Soe Soe Lwin, the Kyar-kwet-thit Ward Administrator of Tarmway Township, was shot to death at point blank inside her car on Kyauk-myaung-thahti-pahtan road and was taken to a nearby hospital. She was declared DOA (Death on arrival). Just last month she survived an assassination attempt when a bomb exploded under her house.

Gen-Z Bombers Accidentally Blowing Themselves Up!

                  (Based on Burmese posts from the FACEBOOK in May & June 2021.) 

Recently there were so many cases of young and inexperienced bombers getting killed or injured by their own home-made bombs in many Burmese towns and cities.

Apparently their Underground NLD masters are teaching them how to assemble cheap home-made pipe bombs in the jungle and sending them back without any sophisticated bomb-making tools into proper Burma.

Instead of buying proper explosives with many millions of US dollars provided by the foreign governments and NGOs, their masters are pocketing most foreign donations and the youths are forced to purchase nitrate-fertilizers, gunpowder, and cheap fuses locally with whatever little cash they are given.

And the home-made pipe-bombs they are trying to make are now killing them in drove. Following is a typical case of one incident in Meikhtilar where one young university-student was killed by accidental explosion and the rest all together 19 youths (5 boys and 9 girls) were captured by the military just yesterday (June-7).

ASEAN Foreign Ministers Met Chinese Counterpart

                 (Max Walden’s article from the ABC NEWS AUSTRALIA on June 5, 2021.) 

South-East Asian foreign ministers this week met their Chinese counterpart in the Chinese city of Chongqing, as a major COVID-19 surge across the region strengthens the reliance on Chinese-made vaccines. The meeting stood in stark contrast with an abortive meeting between US Secretary of State Antony Blinken and South-East Asian diplomats last month.

"The fact that the two sides agreed to hold a face-to-face special foreign ministers' meeting despite the ongoing grim COVID-19 situation reflects how countries attach great importance to and hold high expectations of China-ASEAN relations under the new circumstances," Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Wang Wenbin said.

Connection problems frustrated a planned online meeting in late May — supposed to be the Biden administration's first high-level meeting with the regional bloc — while Mr Blinken was aboard a plane to Israel. Numerous media outlets cited diplomatic sources as saying Mr Blinken kept South-East Asian leaders waiting up to 45 minutes.

Burmese Army’s Hacking Software: Oxygen Forensics

                  (Mike Lewis’s “Filling A Gap” from his blog site on April 25, 2021.) 

Myanmar’s military coup, and the subsequent crackdown on protestors, have refocussed attention on digital surveillance and data extraction tools used by Myanmar’s police and security forces.

Earlier this month the New York Times, using budget documents obtained by the campaign group Justice for Myanmar, listed a series of digital forensics tools that Myanmar’s home affairs ministry has allegedly sought to purchase: software and hardware used to extract data from suspects’ cellphones, computers and other devices.

Some are familiar from previous reporting, particularly around the 2018 trial of the two Reuters journalists Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, which heard communications evidence that investigators had extracted from their cellphones using a Cellebrite UFED device.

Was COVID-19 Virus Created In Wuhan Lab?

       (Professor Clive Hamilton’s article from the SMH AUSTRAIA on May 27, 2021.) 

Where did COVID come from? The case for a leak of a virus engineered in a Wuhan lab:

A year ago I wrote in these pages that the most plausible cause of the pandemic was an accidental leak of a coronavirus from the Wuhan Institute of Virology. I have changed my view. 

I now think it’s likely that the cause of the pandemic is an accidental leak of an engineered coronavirus from the Wuhan Institute of Virology.

Many had been sceptical about the lab leak theory, not least because Donald Trump had been suggesting it. On Wednesday, United States President Joe Biden asked American agencies to investigate this theory more closely. His move follows a shift among virologists, including former sceptics, who are increasingly coming to the view that a lab leak is most likely.

Gunfight At Sha-Du-Zut: KIA Vs People Militia

                  (Translated Burmese post from Htet Htet’s FACEBOOK on April 3, 2021.) 

Pistols, M40, & K09 captured.
(Sha-Du-Zut) This afternoon seven members KIA commando team raided the house of Min Zin Thant who is the famous leader of 100-strong Sha-Du-Zut People Militia unit in Pharkant township which is world-famous for its precious green-jade mines.

Min Zin Thant’s house is right on the bank of Moe-Gaung Creek and the heavily-armed KIA men parked their utility truck across the shallow creek and six of them silently approached the target house. At that time Min Zin Thant was inside one of the ground floor rooms while his young wife was cooking dinner in their kitchen at the back.  

Four KIA men then climbed over the high wrought-iron fence into the front yard and approached the house in-line while two men stayed outside the fence. First man had a 40mm M-40 grenade launcher and he immediately shot a grenade through the front door from just ten feet away. The battle for life or death in Sha-Du-Zut village had started with a loud exlposion.

Explosion blew apart the solid teak door, but Min Zin Thant immediately picked up his 9mm browning semi-automatic pistol and bravely ran out of his room towards the front entrance as the M-40 man cautiously entered the house.

Dr. Fauci Emails: Wuhan Lab-Leak Scandal Brewing!

                  (Editorial post from the NEW YORK POST on June 2, 2021.) 

Fauci emails all the more reason for US to get to bottom of COVID origins: Emails reveal Fauci knew that COVID-19 may have been ‘engineered’ – as he was downplaying it.

So Dr. Anthony Fauci in the pandemic’s early months was casting doubt on the lab-leak theory of COVID’s origins — even as he was also receiving at least one alert from a genomic researcher that “some of the features look (potentially) engineered.”

Notably, he forwarded “anti-conspiracy theory” articles that quoted Peter Daszak — the head of a US nonprofit that used some grant money from Fauci’s agency to fund coronavirus work at the Wuhan Institute of Virology — ­attacking the lab-leak idea. Daszak and others wrote Fauci personally to thank him for dumping on the theory.
