No one except the KIA fuckwits knows how the simple blowing-up the civilian jade mine and killing hundreds of unarmed mining-workers did become a highly-sophisticated military operation. But the UWSA wouldn’t just lie down taking shit from KIA especially more than 100 million US dollars lost from the KIA’s mindless destruction.

It might be a practical joke, for Zeyar Aung could not even keep the daily Mandalay-Myitkyinar train running regularly and safely from frequent KIA mine attacks while he was the Kachin State Army Commander.
So the current development in Pharkant is a godsend for the Burmese army as the Wa and the Kokangs are free to attack KIA if they want as these strong and battle-hardened ethnic armies are technically not under the control of the Union Government of Burma.
