Myanmar Military’s Acts of Terrorism from the Sky & Savage Beheadings on the Ground

The Execution of 4 Activists should Strengthen Myanmar People’s Resolve & Unite their Resistance against the Genocidal Military Junta
Their lost lives this weekend should unify us. Their barbaric executions should instil a much-needed ethos of camaraderie – which calls for basic respect, appreciation and mutual support.

The vicious dialectic of “failed international policies AND failed Myanmar state”, will need to be placed at the right, left and centre of the new international policy debates on Myanmar.
