Hostage Diplomacy: Commie China’s Thuggery

             (Bill Birtles’s article from the ABC NEWS AUS on September 26, 2021.) 

China played dirty to get Huawei’s 'princess' back — too dirty even to tell its own people: Family and supporters of two diplomatic hostages held in China for almost three years have celebrated their arrival home in Canada, as the woman they were traded for, Meng Wanzhou, was given a hero's welcome in the city of Shenzhen.

The trio's return to their respective homes caps a historic three-year standoff between the world's two superpowers, with Canada and the Chinese company Huawei caught in the middle. Upon arriving home to Calgary, one of the two Canadians Michael Kovrig said "It’s fantastic to be back home in Canada".

He'd endured more than a thousand days locked in a Chinese prison with limited access to lawyers and no ability to speak to visitors outside of a monthly consular visit. Meng Wanzhou, the wealthy daughter of Huawei's boss Ren Zhengfei sometimes dubbed a princess by Chinese media, told Chinese state TV as she departed Canada: "If it wasn't for a strong motherland, I wouldn't have my freedom today."

Htan-Ta-Lan Destroyed by Myanmar Army

           (Based on Burmese posts from the FACEBOOK in September 2021.) 

A Chin pastor killed by Myanmar soldiers.
Htantalan is a medium-sized town of about 4,000 Chin people, situated between Indian border and Hakha the state capital city of Chin State in Myanmar. It is the latest town engulfed by the fighting between Myanmar Army and CDF the Chinland Defense Force.

On September-9 there was a fierce battle between nearly 200 strong CDF unit and almost 50-strong patrolling unit of Myanmar Army’s local battalion. Battle lasted just a few hours and killed two soldiers and four CDF men.

The following week-long clashes eventually drove the town populace to flee and take refuge in the nearby border villages. Some families even fled into the Mizoram in bordering India. The worst came on September 18 when the army bombarded the town with their heavy weapons.

Army Laying Landmines to Protect Mytel Towers

            (Based on Burmese posts from the FACEBOOK in September 2021.) 

To protect Dictator MAH’s family asset and the main cash-cow, Mytel, Myanmar Army has been laying fields of landmines around Mytel mobile-phone towers all over Burma especially in the rural areas.

The NLD’s PDFs (People Defense Forces) have been waging a nation-wide war against Myanmar Army and deliberately destroyed at least 200 out of more than 5,000 Mytel towers and causing irreparable damages to MAH’s family fortune.

Since the Mytel towers have been cheaply insured by the largest Myanmar insurance company, Aung Myint Moe Min founded and fully-controlled by MAH’s son Aung Pyae Zone, the enormous cost to replace the 200 towers would nearly bankrupt MAH’s family.

Arming Army-Wives: Violating Mother Rights

              (Based on the Burmese posts from the FACEBOOK in August 2021.) 

A mother and toddler just before they were killed.
Is it a crime against humanity when some crazy institution like universally-hated Myanmar Army is forcing their army-wives, most are nursing young-mothers, to fight and kill or be killed in the process?

That is what exactly the primitive Myanmar Army has been doing for decades while the whole civilized world is saying nothing to stop the barbaric and un-civilized practice. Hundreds or even thousands mothers and their children have been killed in Burma so that the power-mad generals can keep on oppressing the populace for more than 63 years since 1958.

Now is the time for UN or EU or US to intervene and stop the unbelievably-heinous practice of forcing mothers and their children to fight against their own people just because those mothers happened to be married to the soldiers of Myanmar Army.

Australia Going Nuclear: Submarines then ICBMs

           (Announcement from the PRIME MINISTER OFFICE on September 16, 2021.) 

AUKUS-Nuclear powered & armed.
Australia to pursue nuclear-powered submarines through new trilateral enhanced security partnership: Australia, the United Kingdom and the United States have agreed to the creation of an enhanced trilateral security partnership – AUKUS.

The security challenges in the Indo-Pacific region have grown significantly. Military modernisation is occurring at an unprecedented rate and capabilities are rapidly advancing and their reach expanding. The technological edge enjoyed by Australia and our partners is narrowing.

AUKUS will build on the three nations’ longstanding and ongoing bilateral ties, and will enable the partners to significantly deepen cooperation on a range of emerging security and defence capabilities, which will enhance joint capability and interoperability.

The Battle for Myanmar’s Seat in The UNGA

            (Catherine Renshaw’s article from the INTERPRETER on August 10, 2021.) 

Across Myanmar, the battle continues between the military and those opposed to the military coup d’etat of 1 February 2021. Opposition to the coup began with non-violent resistance in the form of the Civil Disobedience Movement.

The aim is now revolution and an end to the military’s decades-long dominance of political life. The revolutionaries have brought within their fold some of the armed ethnic organisations that have long fought against the military in the country’s borderlands. Civil war is looming. A different battle for Myanmar is being fought in the United Nations.

On 14 September, the 75th UN General Assembly (UNGA) will meet in New York. Presidents, prime ministers and dictators from across the world – or their representatives – will gather to discuss, debate and make recommendations on global issues. The question de jour is who will represent Myanmar – the military’s representative or the representative of the democratically elected, ousted government?

Arming Army-Wives: US$ 90 A Month Salary

               (Article from the BURMESE FACEBOOK on September 12, 2021.) 

Myanmar Army desperate to boost the troops’ depleting number and sagging morale has announced on August-10 to pay a fixed salary to every army-wife armed and ready to fight or already fighting the dreaded PDF and the ethnic insurgents.

Myanmar's newest dictator General MAH has ordered his War Office to pay a monthly salary of kyats 180,000, equivalent to US$ 90 at the rapidly depreciating rate of 2,000 kyats/US$, starting from August 2021. 

According to the army circles the armed army-wives will receive a fix salary regardless of her soldier-husband’s rank or status. Their salary of kyats 180,000 is roughly half the unofficial salary Myanmar Army has been paying to the civilian militia like Swan-arr-shins or Pyu-saw-htees.

Almost all the army-wives living inside the battalion Head-Quarter bases all over Burma are now trained and armed heavily to defend their home-bases against their enemies PDFs and ethnic insurgents. And they are taking heavy casualties in so-called liberated areas like the Kachin State and Karen State.

PDFs Launch D-Day War on Mytel

                 (Staff article from the DVB BURMA on September 11, 2021.) 

An extensive campaign of sabotage targeting Mytel’s telecommunication infrastructure is expected to hit Burma’s generals—and Vietnam’s government—with costs that could run into tens, if not hundreds, of millions of dollars. Unsurprisingly, the military are stepping up attempts to protect their investment.

Following the National Unity Government’s D-Day announcement this Tuesday, scores of Mytel transmission towers and substations have been destroyed by Burma’s enlivened resistance groups in what appears to be a targeted campaign to root out the provider.

Well-documented information provided to DVB by People’s Defence Forces (PDFs) operating within Burma suggests that, over four days of operations, well over 60 towers (out of nearly 5,000 towers nationwide) have been critically disabled. The majority are located in the bloody new frontline of the conflict: the Sagaing-Magaway borderlands.

CIA’s Bomb-Making Classes for PDF via Zoom?

           (Aye Min Thant’s article from the NEW NARRATIF on September 9, 2021.) 

Dr. Sasa Visits a Bomb-Making Class: Months before Myanmar’s shadow government declared war on the military, an American gun enthusiast taught activists to build crude bombs that could kill soldiers and civilians alike. Amid a global charm campaign, opposition leader Dr. Sasa praised their efforts.

On 14 June, a man wearing a white T-shirt, baseball cap and blonde goatee turns on his webcam, revealing a dimly lit room full of construction materials, safety equipment and a jumble of small containers, some of them labelled as gunpowder.

Speaking into the camera, he recounts spending several hours that day “putting some things together”: mortar casings, a selection of cannons and homemade firearms known as zip guns. “I built a full-scale, 10-pound mortar today, and I’m going to show some of those things,” he tells his audience of around 40 people, who have gathered via Zoom to watch the demonstration.

Mytel: Dictator Min Aung Hlaing’s Weak Spot!

                  (Based on articles from the Burmese FACEBOOK in September 2021.) 

Myanmar Army Chief and the newest Burmese dictator, General Min Aung Hlaing was recently seen almost crying on the Myanmar TV. Why did the hard man publicly and pathetically collapse?

Not because the sad reason that the people resistance has been killing hundreds and hundreds of his obedient wardog soldiers, and not because his universally-hated wardog soldiers have been deserting his slave army in droves. Just because the nation-wide Burmese resistance movement has started destroying tens and tens of the MYTEL’s mobile phone towers all over the country last few weeks.

Burmese Resistance has found the General’s weak spot and the brave fighters have been deliberately and brutally bombing his MYTEL towers all over the place. It even alarmingly rattles another S-E-Asian dictatorship, the Communist Vietnam.

Australia’s House Bubble is About to Bust!

                  (Staff article from the NEWS.COM.AU on September 3, 2021.) 

China Evergrande Group is on the brink of default and it’s bad news for Australia: One of the biggest property developers in China is at risk of defaulting on billions of dollars of loans – and it’s bad news for Australia.

The company owes hundreds of billions of dollars, and creditors are beating down the doors. As one expert described the property developer as being in a “death spiral”, Evergrande this week warned it could default on its substantial debts. It has about $408 billion in total liabilities.

“The group has risks of defaults on borrowings and cases of litigation outside of its normal course of business,” the Shenzhen-based company said in a recent earnings statement. “Shareholders and potential investors are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the securities of the group.”

NUG Declares D-Day: MAH Offers To Negotiate

                    (Staff article from the ABC NEWS AUSTRALIA on September 7, 2021.) 

Myanmar's shadow government declares resistance war in 'public revolution' against junta: Myanmar's National Unity Government, formed by opponents of the country's military coup, has urged all citizens to revolt against the junta government.

Sharing his demands on Facebook, the NUG's acting president Duwa Lashi La called for "a people's defensive war against the military junta", and urged ethnic organisations to immediately attack coup leader Min Aung Hlaing. He also called on soldiers, police and civil servants to defect to the "public revolution".

"Following the coup, the [Myanmar] people have not passed a day with joy. It has been eight months since the military continuously and cruelly murdered, tortured, detained and imprisoned using many laws," he said in the subtitled video which lasted almost eight minutes.

China’s Property Bubble is About to Bust!

                (Staff article from the ABC NEWS AUSTRALIA on September 6, 2021.) 

China's property bubble may be about to burst, and it could cost Australia dearly: It's one of Hemingway's best lines, from The Sun Also Rises. "How did you go broke?" Bill asked. "Two ways," said Mike. "Gradually and then suddenly."

It is a passage to which Xu Jiayin, founder of China Evergrande, China's biggest property group and the world's 122nd largest company by sales, can relate. For most of this year, his firm has been floundering, fighting off hordes of angry creditors, defending court actions and desperately trying to secure enough finance to survive. Now the situation has taken a sudden turn for the worse.

At its peak, three years ago, the Hong Kong-listed China Evergrande was the world's most valuable real estate group. It's now better known as the world's most indebted property developer, owing more than $US300 billion ($403 billion).

9-11 Monstrosity, Free Money, and Pisslam

          (Recalling my experiences of the infamy known as 9-11 Monstrosity and Political-Islam.)

The early morning of September 11, 2001 in America was late night in Dee Why of Sydney where I had been living for many years since December 1988. In the year of 2001 I was already trading ASX-200 Share Price Index (SPI) at SFE (Sydney Futures Exchange) for nearly three years.

It was a Tuesday and that night I couldn’t sleep early and ending up lying comfy on the couch and watching a TV drama on ABC (Australian Broadcasting Corporation) TV. Then just before midnight the TV screen suddenly started displaying “Breaking news: Passenger jet plane crashed into one of the World Trade Centre twin towers in New York City.” at the bottom of the TV screen.

Very soon the regular program was abruptly stopped and the horrific scenes of a large two-turbine-engine Boeing plane entering the North Tower like a hot knife into a block of butter was being repeatedly shown.

PDF Cell Responsible For Train Attack Captured

                   (Balaminhtin’s post from his Facebook Page on September 3, 2021.) 

In the dark night of September-2, Myanmar Army raided an apartment unit in the Myittar Nyunt Ward of Tarmwe Township in Rangoon City, and captured four members of the PDF (People Defense Force) cell responsible for the fatal attack on the police security unit riding on Rangoon City Circle train on August-14.

The train ambush killed five policemen and wounded one and the PDF got away with four automatic assault rifles and assorted ammunitions. The captured PDF cell members are Myat Phyo Pwint (the only female and the owner of the apartment raided), Kyaw Win Soe, Kaung Pye San Oo, and San Min Aung.

The four assault rifles taken from the Myanmar Police were also recaptured from the unit. The apartment owner and financial backer Myat Phyo Pwint is declared by Myanmar Army as the wealthy daughter of a serving NCO from Myanmar Army’s Construction Engineering Corps (GE).

The following article from the Myanmar Now (a resistance media organization) was the story of train ambush on the security police unit on a Rangoon City Circle train on August-14.
