Especially the main exercise of special-forces operation of attacking and occupying a strategic location – geographically very similar to Rangoon – in Thailand aided by Naval and Air supports was really unnerving the Burmese military strategists and planners.

Burma army's devastating massive offensive last year.
And the ultimate success for these negotiations relies totally on the fair and agreeable sharing of power and natural resources between the future civilian government of Burman-majority Mainland and the ethnic-majority States.
Such demand like hardliner-Shans' push to reorganize present seven divisions of Burma-proper to a single Burman State will never be tolerated by the Burmese majority and their army.
Recalcitrant KIA (the so-called Kachin Independence Army) had bitterly tasted that big stick just last year and they are now back at the negotiations table.

(Blogger's Notes: I was born in a CPB's field hospital inside then-very-remote Pa-Lway Kyo-waing on Pegu-Yoma Ranges in 1956 and that exact area now is cleared and developed as part of Burma's new capital Nay-pyi-daw. I even think Burma Army's War Office now is right at that spot where I was born. Thus I am very happy and excited to claim myself as a Nay-pyi-daw born Burmese. Bravo and cheers!)
