I totally agree with Bop Htaw’s, “Talk in Rangoon:
War on the border”. Many of us are focusing too much
on talks rather than the situation in the rural area. Daw
Suu is in the prison and they don’t care about our voice
unless we show our might. We need more attention to find a
way increase the armed fighting against the regime.
The international community is good enough to pressure but
many of us (freedom fighters) are giving up our arms now.
Even non-cease fire groups are doing political campaign rather
than fighting in guerrilla war. The regime will never listen
to us if we speak softly.
