among all the hue and cry and outrage over the brutal crackdown on the burmese protestors , something seem to be missing here -- no one is talking about those sobs who Engineered and instigate this uprising.
anybody who is up to date with current affairs knows that this is another "regime change" attempt by the yanks, just like tam 1989 and burma 1988.
"Who is Col. Robert Helvey? He was an officer of the Defence Intelligence Agency (DIA) of the Pentagon, who had served in Vietnam and, subsequently, as the US Defence Attache in Yangon, Myanmar, (1983 to 85) during which he clandestinely organised the Myanmarese students to work behind Aung San Suu Kyi and in collaboration with Bo Mya's Karen insurgent group. He was subsequently based in Thailand where he organised the training of the student and Karen supporters of Aung San Suu Kyi. In 1988-89, he also trained in Hong Kong the student leaders from Beijing in mass demonstration techniques which they were to subsequently use in the Tiananmen Square incident of June,1989. He is now believed to be acting as an adviser to the Falun Gong, the religious sect of China, in similar civil disobedience techniques, which the sect is using with increasing effectiveness against the Chinese authorities."
this is the same template used in the "color revolutions" in central asia.
this is the socalled "soft option" favoured by george soros, the architect of the "color revolutions", soros detest bush not for his ideology, they are both the vanguard of the nwo, his objection is for bush brutish "shock and awe" style , which he consider counter productive to the cause coz it lay bare the ugly underbelly of us imperialism for all to see, resulting in the plummage of us image and credibility world wide, even in formally us friendly countries.
this "soft option" involves no us invasions, bombings, no bad press from the world community. neither is there backlash at the home front coz the cannon fodders are not fresh faced kids from some small town in texas, or foreign mercaneries bought and paid for
the new cannon fodders are local kids, the brave students, monks, chinese grannies and blue eyed canadian kids, etc
who defiantly stick it up to the authorities, take to the streets en mass, charge at the soldiers with their bare hands. these are no doubt brave folks, but they are also unnwitting prawns being used by some one else deadly power play. someone who would wank themselves in front of such headline like "massacre in beijing, thousands killed by soldiers, including many women and children".
in many cases there were agent provocateurs amongst the protestors who incited violence and attack the police to provoke a brutal crackdown, to be recorded by foreign journalists or tv crew who had been alerted in advance or just "happened to be at hand".
we saw them in the tam video, those who threw molotov cocktails at army vehicles, we saw them in lhasa, tibet 1987, where blue eyed blond "tourists" led from behind to instigate women and children to attack soldiers and torch buidlings, we saw them in venezula, where anti chavez forces employed agents provocateurs to shoot at the demonstrators and blamed it on the authority.
there's nothing "soft" in these "regime changes" for the demonstrators in tam [casuaties unknown], for the protestors in burma 1988 , for the protestors in burma today [casuaties ?].
everbody says the generals are brutal, then what about those who goaded the unarmed monks and students to challenge these brutes, knowing full well the outcome of the confrontations. ?
i can almost envisage these gents hunkered over the tv set in a smoke filled dark room, breaking into cheers when the shooting start out..
"great, they have started shooting, get me brian over there, i want a hourly report on the casualties and get those film crews pronto....."
if those generals are brutes, these self appointed "king makers" are downright despicable. as for those yanks who are so smugly asking for sanctions, boycott, basking in their new found moral orgaism, i have said this before and i am sayin it now, "you have blood in your hands"
