Buffalohair: India Caught in it’s own Crossfire

India Caught in it’s own Crossfire

Posted in Asia with tags Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma, India on May 27, 2009 by buffalohair


indiaflag

The growing furor over India’s lack of response to the plight of Aung San Suu Kyi has gone public. *Prominent entertainers and politicians began to question the government’s motives. With investors in Than Shwe’s living hell, such as Tata Motors with its proposed heavy truck plant, the Indian government and industries find themselves in a precarious position. Once Asia’s “dirty little secret” Burma has become the center of attention as the eyes of the world focus on Than Shwe’s murderous reign of terror like never before.


Thanks to Gen. Than Shwe’s blatant attempt to incarcerate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi the citizens of the world are starting to ask hard questions about industries and countries who’ve financed the criminals of Burma. Now the Indian government is coming under the microscope as India’s prominent politicians, entertainers and the general public show their support for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. They are asking hard questions and discover hard and horrific facts about some members of India’s industrial complex, political leaders and their relationship with Burma. The volatility of India’s political arena already shows signs of combustion. It is obvious the Indian public does not share the opinion of the politicians and industries that’ve bankroll Than Shwe. It will be political suicide for any politician to be associated with Than Shwe in the future. India’s balancing act between ethics and economics’ has politicians at a loss for words. No matter how they respond they will sound hypocritical at best.


“We understand that you need gas and timber from Burma. For whatever reason it is, those should not be equated with the rights and the freedom of the Burmese people.”


Surendra Mohan


Former Member of Parliament of India


It’s all about the money. If economics takes precedents over humanity it is time humanity used economics in the battle for human rights. It’s only a matter of time before people know who is invested in Burma. Not only are the governments of the world upset about the plight of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. Now the consumer is aware and reading every last bit of information about Burma and its dictator Gen. Than Shwe. Maybe now the general public will impose sanctions of their own fore it is the people who carry the most financial clout in the world. The people have the power to make or break any industry including those invested in Burma. It’s time for the Fighting Peacock to awaken in all of us. People Power!

Buffalohair: Tension on all Fronts’, Burma

Tension on all Fronts’, Burma

Posted in Asia with tags ASEAN, Aung San Suu Kyi, KIA, Shan Army, Wa Army on May 27, 2009 by buffalohair


May 30th

With tensions mounting between the Burmese Military and the Kachin Independence Army, news of Anti-Naypyitaw-Shan State Army, (SSA) ‘South’ successful ambush of Mongzern Militia was not well received. Trucks and equipment were destroyed with 15 casualties. 2 Burmese Army Military Affairs Security (MAS) officers were among the dead. *One report noted SAA defector Col, Mongzern was also in the body count. The United Wa State Army tossed the junta’s offer to be border cops in the fire and is quietly sharpening their knives. The general public, though reserved and unassuming, is livid and filled with anger over the sham trial of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. This anger has permeated all quarters of Burmese society with unprecedented ferocity. This is quite a roadmap to democracy.


Fearful, the junta has turned its guns on their own ranks looking for potential sympathizers. The generals have declared war on their own soldiers. Its ironic soldiers do the junta’s dirty work while the generals reap all the bounty. It’s laughable that better than 80% of the military including Than Shwe’s circle of friends favor change. The Association of Southeast Asian Nations **(Asean) made a rare public condemnation of Burma and its trial of Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. Asean also warned that Burma’s honor and credibility were at stake at this juncture. Than Shwe’s zeal to slander and imprison Aung San Suu Kyi ahead of the 2010 Election was all too obvious. But in reality the junta’s conduct had not really changed with all this attention though. Its business as usual only this time we get a bird’s eye view.

Alaska cracks down on man who feeds wild bears

Alaska cracks down on man who feeds wild bears

By MARY PEMBERTON Associated Press Writer The Associated Press
Saturday, May 23, 2009 1:03 PM EDT

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Charlie Vandergaw is crazy about bears.

That's obvious in a documentary made last year by a British filmmaker at Vandergaw's remote Alaska cabin and featured in the recent Animal Planet series "Stranger Among Bears." The videos show him scratching the belly of one black bear as if it was the family dog, feeding a cookie to a large black bear sitting under a tree, and feeding dog kibble to a cub from his outstretched hand.

Vandergaw has been coexisting with bears this way for the last 20 years, and he wants to be left alone.

That is not likely to happen now that the state is using a beefed-up law to prosecute Vandergaw for feeding bears. Game officials consider feeding bears a danger to humans, especially if others duplicate the behavior.

Not everyone thinks the state needs to be going after a 70-year-old retired teacher and wrestling coach.

Even if Vandergaw ends up being killed by the bears he loves, that's the Alaska way, said John Frost, who has been friends with Vandergaw for years. He recalled that when he came to Alaska in 1973 he saw a T-shirt that said "Alaska land of the individual and other endangered species."

"Yet here we are as a state going to crush this kind, gentle little guy," Frost said.

The bears at Vandergaw's cabin about 50 miles northwest of Anchorage are more than bold, said Sean Farley, a research biologist with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game, who helped troopers serve a search warrant on Farley's cabin last year.

During the search, bears had be scared off with "cracker shots" that make a loud noise when fired.

If bears were that bold in an Anchorage park or campground, Farley said, he would recommend they be shot right away.

He also noted what happened to filmmaker Richard Terry at Vandergaw's cabin: "He got whacked and dragged across the yard by one of the bears during filming. Charlie has been nipped and slapped around."

The state last week charged Vandergaw with 20 counts of illegally feeding game — a charge that could put him in jail for a year and fine him $10,000.

The law was recently changed to include stiffer fines and jail time, and Frost says it was specifically changed to go after his friend, Vandergaw. Farley denies that Vandergaw was the motivation behind the stiffer penalties.

There was no comment from Vandergaw. No one answered the door at his Anchorage home Wednesday and he hasn't responded to messages. The state has seized the plane that he normally would use to reach the cabin, Bear Haven, which isn't accessible by road. According to charging documents, the plane was used to transport dog food to the cabin.

Vandergaw's lawyer, Kevin T. Fitzgerald, said in a statement that he found the state charges "curious as to both timing and substance." He said Vandergaw stopped feeding bears last year.

The documentary describes how Vandergaw once hunted bears but quit after an encounter with a bear 20 years ago, shortly after he retired in 1985. A black bear appeared on his yard and crawled up to him on its belly. According to the Animal Planet Web site, Vandergaw reciprocated, and the encounter started "a long-lasting love affair" with bears.

Farley said there is a psychological component to Vandergaw's behavior with the bears. "They are associating with Charlie only because of the food. That association is fulfilling some psychological need for Charlie," he said.

Many Alaskans think Vandergaw is just plain crazy and lucky not to be "Treadwelled," a term used by some unsympathetic Alaskans referring to Timothy Treadwell, a self-described "bear protector" who had a similarly chummy relationship with bears. He and his girlfriend were eaten by grizzlies in Katmai National Park in 2003.

On one of the videos, Vandergaw says: "I think basically what I do is my business as long as I'm not hurting anyone."

But Farley said Vandergaw was profiting from Bear Haven and had drawn two friends into his enterprise. They also were charged.

According to charging documents, Firecracker Films in London paid Vandergaw and co-defendant Carla Garrod nearly $79,000.

"Charlie hasn't just been quietly feeding them. He has been profiting from it," Farley said.

Charging documents say a search of the home of Garrod — a real estate appraiser who also owns a photo business called C&C Bear Imagery — found receipts for thousands of pounds of dog food and hundreds of pounds of cookies.

Also charged was another Vandergaw friend, Terry Cartee. Documents say Cartee delivered 2,800 pounds of dog food to Vandergaw.

"It is unfortunate that the state of Alaska has taken this action now after turning a blind eye toward Mr. Vandergaw and his activities in the Susitna River valley for many years," Brent Cole, Garrod's lawyer, said in a statement. "This is an unfortunate occurrence which should make all citizens of Alaska pause and contemplate the unbridled power of the state of Alaska."

Buffalohair: Burmese Junta Thugs Threaten U Win Tin’s Life

Burmese Junta Thugs Threaten

U Win Tin’s Life

Posted in Asia with tags Assasination, Burma, Than Shwe, U Win Tin, USDA on May 21, 2009 by buffalohair

14863-win_tin

U Win Tin National League for Democracy Senior Officer, better known as “The Man of Steel” has been at the gates of Insein Prison since Daw Aung Suu Kyi’s arrival. Released from prison after spending 19 years, almost entirely in solitary confinement and left to die from illnesses, has held his ground. With his spirit unbroken and still very much alive this warrior of democracy once stated, “I will keep fighting until the emergence of democracy in this country”. *U Win Tin is defiant even with threats to his life by junta thugs.



It is known the Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA) and the paramilitary group Swan Arr Shin have made threats to U Win Tin’s life. Undaunted, U Win Tin refuses bodyguards and stands defiant. Man of Steel and full of love for his country U Win Tin has become a beacon of courage and principle for the people of Burma and refuses to compromise his ethics in spite of his age and medical condition. He is a role for all Burmese people to emulate and this has made him a target for assassination by Gen. Than Shwe and his band of international criminals.



It is at this critical time in Burma’s history that the world must be vigilant and know that if this champion of democracy and morality is killed the criminal regime of Than Shwe’s Burma was wholly responsible for his murder. With the noose tightening around Than Shwe’s neck every day it is only a matter of time before the junta makes a move and begins another round of assassinations and secret kidnappings. This is junta justice better known as crimes against humanity at its best. The only problem is now like never before the whole world is watching.



Like the warlords of Somalia, Than Shwe and his band of cut throats and thieves are nothing more than thugs and do not deserve a place in the world arena. He is not a leader he is an extortionist who uses rape and murder to keep a country in bondage. He and his regime have violated every international law which places him in a category of criminal and undeserving of any consideration a leader of a nation. He was never elected by the people and only used force to gain control of this beleaguered nation. All Than Shwe and his generals deserve is to be arrested and tried in court for egregious crimes against humanity. His legacy will be nothing more than that of a mass murderer and all the corporations who’ve financed his escapades show be tried as co-conspirators.



Truly U Win Tin is one of Burma’s courageous patriots and deserves the worlds attention at this critical time.

Buffalohair: Burma’s Ploy Backfires Big Time

Burma’s Ploy Backfires Big Time

Posted in Asia with tags Aung San Suu Kyi, Burma, SAnctions, Than Shwe on May 20, 2009 by buffalohair

Than Shwe's Kangaroo Court system
Than Shwe’s Kangaroo Court System

What was going to be an open and shut case with regard to Daw Aung San Suu Kyi has gleaned unprecedented international attention and distain. Never before has there been such keen awareness on all levels of the world population. From the Internet, radio, television and feature films Burma is in the limelight like never before. The plight of Aung San Suu Kyi and the people of Burma are no longer a quiet diplomatic issue relegated to the impotent United Nations and meaningless sanctions. Now the people of the world are watching with great intensity and they are not pleased.


Than Shwe’s plan to eliminate Aung San Suu Kyi’s presence during his sham 2010 election has woefully backfired. Inquisitive citizens from every nation on Earth are seeking out information and hard facts about the plight of Burma and they are shocked at with they’ve discovered. Finally the world is paying attention and the efforts of all the pro democracy organizations over the years is bearing fruit in Than Shwe’s unexpected harvest. Now people are fast becoming aware of the once secret and corrupt world of Gen. Than Shwe and his criminal regime.


Average people who only a few weeks ago did not even know where Burma was are educating themselves about the criminal regime and the criminal corporations who’ve sponsored Than Shwe’s bloody exploits. International corporations and nations who’ve financed Burma’s blood bath for financial gain are coming under the microscope and it will not be long before Than Shwe’s secret partners in crime are dragged into the streets of public opinion. Guilty of slavery, rape and murder many corporations from around the world gleaned a handsome profit from Than Shwe’s criminally corrupt regime and now the gory details of their exploits have a willing audience.


Though the military junta of Burma is struggling with damage control the cat is out of the bag. The floodgates have burst as outrage of not only Than Shwe’s government but with impotent politicians and the United Nations become a central issue. The public from all points of the globe are coming to realize the power they truly have. They are the consumers of the world who’ve filled the coffers of international corporations. Without the consumer dollar corporations would shrivel up and disappear fore no one can be forced to buy anything they don’t want to. Now these once invincible conglomerates face an adversary they are powerless to influence, extort or lobby, the angry consumer. And as the truth about once secret deals with Burma’s criminal regime comes into focus the public will exclude products associated with these firms.


There will be no bail-out for these corporations and the individuals who were the liaison and go betweens with the regime will undoubtedly join Than Shwe and his generals in the court of public opinion. They will also be held accountable for the people who were used as slaves and murdered with the blessing of Than Shwe. International corporate goons will be identified by junta generals who seek immunity in the eventual international tribunal for “crimes against humanity”. Ironically this is an aspect of Globalization corporations did not calculate into their equation as they gleaned handsome profits at the expense of humanity on every continent.


“If corporate and economic issues are to take precedents over humanity then it’s time for humanity to use economics in its battle for human rights, fight fire with fire”


The plight of Aung San Suu Kyi and the People of Burma is a microcosm of the plight of the people of the world in the face of corporate greed. The consumer dollar is the Achilles Tendon in the once invincible corporate body armor. Now the individual consumer is becoming aware of the power they truly have as average folks around the world rally support for Aung San Suu Kyi and the People of Burma. By withholding one dollar from any corporation who does business with Burma you pierce the armor of corporations fore without your money they are nothing. Everything comes full circle and the days of brow beating from corporations and lack luster politicians is coming to an end. In releasing Aung San Suu Kyi and the People of Burma we will break the stranglehold of corporate greed around the world as well fore we possess the ultimate weapon of corporate mass destruction, the all mighty dollar.


If you don’t buy, they will die.

What We Buy

I'm in! I just watched a video on the closing of a small town Chrysler dealership.....these folks are losing their only livlihood, and as long as we continue being so "I want it, I'll have it" more and more americans will lose their jobs. So what if you have to do without something, suck it up and just do it! Our country is at stake.



Sorry this looks so weird. It was forwarded to me with a million names of people it had been sent to. I copied it and cleaned it up as best I could before sending it.


I have already started this, and
believe it or not
am suprised by what I find I really don't
need.


I WAS BUYING FOOD
THE OTHER DAY AT THE
COUNTRY MARKET. ON THE LABEL OF SOME PRODUCTS
IT SAID FROM
CHINA.FOR EXAMPLE THE" OUR FAMILY"
BRAND OF THE MANDARIN
ORANGES SAYS RIGHT ON THE CAN FROM
CHINA I WAS
SHOCKED!! SO FOR A FEW MORE CENTS I
BOUGHT THE
LIBERTY GOLD BRAND OR THE DOLE IS FROM
CAL .
TAKES FOREVER JUST TO BUY
FOOD AND DO LABEL
READING !
!

Are we Americans as dumb as we appear --- or --- is it that we just do not think?



While the Chinese, knowingly and intentionally, exprt inferior and even toxic products and
dangerous toys and goods to be sold in American markets, the media wrings its hands and criticizes
the Bush Administration for perceived errors.


Yet 70% of Americans believe that the trading privileges afforded to the Chinese should be suspended.

Well, duh..why do you need the government to suspend trading privileges?

SIMPLY DO IT YOURSELF, AMERICA !!

Simply look on the bottom of every product you buy,
and if it says 'Made in China ' or 'PRC' (and that now includes Hong Kong ),
simply choose another product, or none at all.
You will be amazed at how dependent you are on Chinese products,
and you will be equally amazed at what you can do without.
Who needs plastic eggs to celebrate Easter?
If you must have eggs, use real ones and benefit some Amican farmer.
Easter is just an example, the point is do not wait for the government to act.
Just go ahead and assume control on your own.
THINK ABOUT THIS If 200 million Americans refuse to buy just $20 each of Chinese goods,
that's a billion dollar trade imbalance resolved in our favor...fast!!
The downside?
Some American businesses will feel a temporary pinch from h aving
foreign stockpiles of inventory.

Wahhhhhhhhhhhh

The solution?
Let's give them fair warning and send our own message.
Most of the people who have been reading about this matter are planning on implementing this on
June 4, and continue it until July 4.
That is only one month of trading losses, but it will hit the Chinese for 1/12th of the total, or 8%,
of their American exports. Then they will at least have to ask themselves if the benefits of their
arrogance and lawlessness were worth it.

! Remember, June 4 to July 4.

EVEN BETTER. . .
START
NOW.
Send this to everybody you know. Let's show them that we are Americans and NOBODY can
take us for granted. If we can't live without cheap Chinese goods for one
month out of our lives,
WE DESERVE WHAT WE GET!
Pass it on,
America

Thanks Maggie, a very good point!

And another thought of where did it come from and by what Company that may be dealing in Burma?

Buffalohair: People Power Sanctions will Defeat Burma’s Tyrant

People Power Sanctions will Defeat Burma’s Tyrant

Posted in Asia on May 19, 2009 by buffalohair

Than Cash


Whether or not a cab driver gave John William Yettaw a ride from the airport to Aung San Suu Kyi’s compound on May 2nd would be of no importance to the junta. Video and a host of eye witnesses would have no bearing in this case either since it’s not about justice or the rule of law. No one in their right mind would testify since it would be a death sentence if they opposed the junta. It’s all about securing the 2010 election and Aung San Suu Kyi needed to be neutralized in order to guarantee success for the military junta. Sadly, Gen. Than Shwe shot himself in the foot with this latest egregious and criminal act. Not only world leaders are appalled by his conduct but the average citizen’s of the world have joined the ranks of the disgusted.



More and more Asian nations are taking a stand on the side of sensibility and honor as this drama unfolds. Call it a marketing ploy but it will soon come to pass when consumers realize their power over corporations and politicians. If millions of people across the globe decide not to buy products from countries and corporations favorable to Than Shwe they can negatively influence the corporate bottom line and cripple economies. Now that everyone on the planet is aware of Than She’s scam it is time to launch a financial offensive.



Store shelves in every country on the planet are filled with goods and supplies manufactured by a myriad of corporations who are invested in Burma in spite of sanctions imposed on Than Shwe’s government. This is the primary reason sanctions did not succeed in the first place. It is time to sanction companies who’ve supported Burma in earnest, but really mean it. If everyone who is aware of Aung San Suu Kyi’s plight is truly sincere about their concern they will pay more attention to the names of corporations and countries that finance Burma. Nations can’t achieve what the average citizen can as far as sanctions are concerned. We have the same financial clout as The World Bank if we put our minds to it. Daewoo is only one of many corporations heavily invested in Burma’s tyranny and they fill shelves with electronic contraptions and cars on every highway on the Globe. If everyone “just said no” to Daewoo products Daewoo would be forced to divest in Burma. Suzuki is another one of Japans corporations who are in partnership with Than Shwe. US and European firms also share the dishonor of working with Asia’s devil. See *“Dirty List” for more details.



CPG a subsidiary of **Australian engineering firm Downer EDI pulled out of the lucrative Naypyidaw Airport project when a freelance journalist exposed their involvement with Than Shwe. If you don’t buy corporations will die proving the all mighty dollar is a corporate weapon of mass destruction. Than Shwe may ignore the outcry from the world but he will not be able to ignore nations and corporations who divest themselves of Burma. China is waiting in the wings to see how far the world will go to before they state their position. Why, well according to sources inside of China it is all about commerce to them and if it is deemed more profitable to join the movement to free Burma, they will. But if this is nothing but another impotent attempt with no momentum they will side with Burma. It’s all about the money and this is why it is absolutely important that the people of the globe unite in a grass roots boycott of goods, countries and corporations who are invested in Burma. That will wipe the smile off Than Shwe’s face.



If one freelance journalist can expose and force a billion dollar corporation to cease and desist operations in Burma then an army of zealous people from around the world can cripple all the major corporations of the globe if they do not cease and desist in operations within Burma. China would side with humanity since it would be more profitable. If we isolated companies and countries doing business with Than Shwe this would send a financial weapon of mass destruction into their already frail economies. With the eyes of the world on Burma today participation in a massive financial crack down would be a resounding success. Governments and Sanctions can’t do it alone. But if everyone on an individual basis were to take the time to expose companies involved in Burma we can make a difference. Without consumer cash corporations and economies will die.



If corporate and economic issues are to take precedents over humanity then it’s time for humanity to use economics in its battle for human rights. Fight fire with fire.

Armed police, drove Suu Kyi and two women who live with her from their lakeside villa to Insein Prison.

RANGOON — Burma’s pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi was taken by armed escort Thursday to a prison compound where she will be tried in connection with the intrusion of an American man who sneaked into her compound, her lawyer said.

Such a trial could justify another extension of Suu Kyi’s yearslong detention, which officially ends May 27. In the past the junta—which regards the Nobel Peace laureate as the biggest threat to their rule—has found reasons to extend her periods of house arrest, which international jurors say is illegal even under Burma’s own law.

It was not immediately clear what accusation she faced, but Burmese exile groups said she was likely to be charged under a catchall public security law and could face a prison term of up to seven years.

Buffalohair:3 Year Sentence for Aung San Suu Kyi?

3 Year Sentence for Aung San Suu Kyi?

Posted in

Asia with tags Aung San Suu Kyi, John Yethaw,

Than Shwe on May 12, 2009 by buffalohair

Than Reaper

In a spirited turn of events the military junta is seeking 3 additional years of confinement for Daw Aung San Suu Kyi for accepting John Yethaw (Rangoon Swimmer) into her home last week. This reeks of set up and a total denial of Aung San Suu Kyi’s rights even as prescribed by Than Shwe. As usual Than Shwe is penciling in laws to suite his political needs in defiance of even his bogus laws. Apparently he does not realize he is only furthering the resolve of pro democracy groups and now, the general public.


Another turn of events from reliable intelligence sources within Burma is news John Yethaw may be forced to admit to lies the junta has prepared for him. Either by torture or by administering drugs it is expected John Yethaw will admit to untrue statements with regard to the intrusion of Aung San Suu Kyi’s home last week. This will raise another issue since John is an American citizen and maybe subject to cruel and unusual punishment. The military junta has shown total disregard for international laws as well as their own and will stoop to any level to obtain their objectives. Extortion and torture are standard operating procedure as well as crimes against humanity.


There is no question John Yethaw will admit to some of the most vile allegations the junta can muster. Ironically it was an unnamed member of the security force who verified that Aung San Suu Kui was not at all amused by the intrusion early in the investigation. It was the same individual who clearly noted that Aung San Suu Kyi stayed in the second floor while John was relegated to the first floor. The rumor mill from the junta has already spawned myths that this was not John’s first visitation. But by saying so makes the security force guarding Aung San Suu Kyi’s home look inept and bungling at best.


As another journalist said earlier this week; “Only Aung San Suu Kyi will know the real truth” As we all know, the military junta and its publication “The New Light of Myanmar” are nothing more than propaganda machines filled with lies and fabrications. So be prepared for more sewage from the desk of Gen. Than Shwe fore the next round will surely be filled with salacious material in an effort to disgrace Aung San Suu Kyi. This will coincide with the efforts of the military junta to place Aung San Suu Kyi in prison for 3 years. After all, this is what it’s all about, eliminating ALL opposition to the illegal 2010 election.

The End of We Shall Remain?

Posted: Tue May 12, 2009 5:30 am Post subject:

At the end of part 4! They then switched to a Show about Going to the land of the free? For freedom of our religion? I choked and turned off the TV.

Opppsss! They should have done a Nature show !
Not a slap in the face one to gag on!

But glad they did 'We shall Remain'!

Part 5 hit home and stirred up more emotions! More about the schools history and families being spread out into the cities! Then All the families going into hiding around the Country, being disconnected from each other!

Of course the bad apple Wilson on the Rez always got my goat!

Fighting for Steven

On the the northwestern arm of the Crow Reservation, in Montana, the Cole family is missing a son. After his 2005 shooting was declined for prosecution on the grounds of self-defense, his mother Earline began to lead a fight against the federal agents and prosecutors the family believes allowed Steven's shooter to go free.

In this piece, produced by photojournalist Shane McMillan for the Montana Native News Project, the Cole's reveal their story of love, loss and their fight to clear Steven's name.
