No i mean. I was in a meeting and was a historic meeting. Was the first sitting president's trip to myanmar. There had been liberalization where democratic election had occurred and the results were being respected. It looked like and things were liberalizing. Political prisoners were getting out of jail. I'd actually negotiated. The communique before obama came with a whole set of concessions by the burmese government's obama showed up. The communique was negotiated and people were happy with it and there. I found myself in her house in a meeting. With hillary clinton barack obama and the rest of teams might very small meeting of maybe half dozen people in on and luckily even though i was incredibly uncomfortable in the meeting. Your bust out. You're in this security bubble especially when you're a foreign country but even in america where you can't get separated from the bubbles. You can't be like timeout. I gotta go palm for whatever. So i just got swept along. You can't raise your hand and say excuse me my skin's about terrip. I need to relieve some of this pressure.

Biden Imposes Sanctions on Generals Who Engineered Myanmar Coup

"At russian protests. Plenty of people holding up gold painted toilet. Brushes luxuriant lose can tell you a lot about despotic leaders. So we head into the smallest rooms from history but i for the sixth consecutive day across me on mar. Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets. They've been demonstrating since the military seized power last week. Overthrowing the elected government of aung san suu achieve. The army has claimed without evidence that an election in november one by miss sushi's party was fraudulent cinema. Today you've got. Where do ya on monday. The top military commander now in charge me. An online made his first televised address since the coup. He restated pledge to hold elections after year long state of emergency and he tried to reassure the public and investors that his interim government would be different from the oppressive That ran the country for nearly half a century. But america said yesterday it will impose fresh sanctions in response to the coup. I've approved a new executive order enabling us to sanction the military leaders who directed the coup their business interests as well as close family members and myanmar's biggest protest movement in a generation isn't backing down every night since the army toppled me and mars civilian government on february. First people all over. The country have banged their pots and pans at atm. This is an old ritual to cast out evil spirits which has morphed into a protest. Totally mccann are southeast. Asia correspondent. Many of these demonstrations have the air of carnival yesterday about one hundred young women paraded around downtown gone wearing disney princess outfits because they wanted to make the point that it wasn't just grownups who are angry about the coup. It's also girls. Their age and the streets are flooded with red balloons. Red being the color of aung san suu cheese national league for democracy party then lt in fact if you look at pictures today you won't see that many red balloons anymore. Because they've all sold out and how has the military reacted to all these protests. What's changed since we spoke just over a week ago when the protests hadn't started but there was clearly discontent about the coup. The army is trying to put a stop to these protests on monday. It's ian named true news. Information team issued a statement saying that action would be taken against wrongdoers who disrupt the state stability true to their word in cities across the country. Police are lobbing tear gas into crowds firing water cannon in mandalay me and mars second city. The police tried to disperse a crowd by beating them with truncheons and police are also firing rubber bullets. Three protesters are now being treated for wounds from bullets. And two people in the capital naypyidaw were shot with what seems to have been live ammunition and so as the military response ramps up our people frightened of what might happen if they continue to take the streets. Yeah i mean despite the carnival ask air of some of these protests. There is a deep sense of foreboding. Military rule only ended ten years ago so people remember how the previous junta crush dissent huge rallies took place nine hundred eighty eight and two thousand and seven and the army responded by shooting into crowds of protesters killing hundreds of people so protesters today are right to be worried. And they're alive. The fact that the military regime is up to his old tricks again. Agents from feared intelligence service or knocking on doors driving many activists and journalists into hiding at least two hundred people have arrested and on monday ninety districts including in the largest city and the capital impose curfews and restricted gatherings to no more than five people effectively criminalizing public assembly and last night the draft of new cybersecurity law. The government wants to pass was leaked. This would give regime sweeping powers to control the internet and effectively end free speech online so given all of those risks. Who is it that that's daring to go out into the streets. It is people from all walks of life. Teenagers labor's professionals. Lots of people are on strike teachers. Firefighters and health workers government workers are resigning en masse among them the entirety of the ministry of welfare. We saw extraordinary scenes on tuesday. The handful of officers in the police force actually broke ranks and join the protesters extraordinary because the police under the command of the army. So it's very unusual for them to be doing this and joining them yesterday. Where nearly fifty police officers from kaya state who declared their opposition to the coup. And what does it they all want. Of course they to reverse the coup they want to restore democracy and they want the release of their hero. Aung san suu cheap as well as other members of her nationally for democracy party who also been detained and do you think there's a chance that with all of this unrest who might backfire on the general's not just the response of people i suppose but also international response. It certainly hasn't been the fate of they expected. Mass resignations. i mentioned are roiling. the bureaucracy and form businesses are exiting the country so analysts saying it's going to be very difficult to see how they got some kind of status quo ante and younger generations are not going to back down easily. They're educated than they were a decade ago more organized and much more connected because of the arrival of the internet about a decade ago us leaders demands are hardening. They're talking about ending army rule altogether and scrapping the constitution which the generals wrote some activists. I interviewed said that if non violent protests fail they are bent on taking weapons and fighting when it comes to the international community in america. President joe biden said yesterday that he had approved an executive order that will pave the way for new. us sanctions. We will identify first round of targets this week. And we're also going to impose strong exports controls we're freezing. Us assets that benefit the burmese government while maintaining our support for healthcare civil society groups and other areas that benefit the people of burma directly but will these sanctions do much. Do you think. Joe biden has staked his foreign policy on reinvigorating democracy around the world. And that's why he's so keen throughout these sanctions but they are unlikely to convince the generals to change course just two years ago and nineteen the commander in chief minister lying and three other generals had sanctions placed on them by the us they proceeded with their coup. Anyway they're used to being isolated by the world and i just don't think that america's sanctions are going to convince them to change course. I feel that this conflict from the protest was in the army may be coming to ahead. The commander in chief is a deeply proud man and he will not stand by as the institution to which is dedicated to his career is humiliated by protesters and disney princess outfits at the same time. The protesters are digging in their heels. I think it's become clear that over the last week there's no returning to the quasi democracy at me and mom -joyed of the last decade either. The army cracks down and it's returned to the battle. Days of military rule or a new political system is going to emerge from the rooms of the old one. My fear is that the former scenario seems much will likely the ladder.

The Khun Sa Files

"At the end of January nineteen, eighty to the forty eight year old coon saw lost almost everything. In a matter of days, the empire he'd spent years building had fallen since his escape from house arrest in nineteen, seventy, six Kuhn saw had risen to become one of the most powerful and infamous drug lords in the world from his base in northern Thailand. He trafficked opium out of Burma refined it into heroin and sold it to organized crime outfits across. Southeast. Asia approximately seventy five percent of the world's heroin was coming out of the region. Much of it. Thanks to Kuhn saw, and he was able to do it all with the help of the Thai government and Sean State Freedom Fighters. But in the early nineteen eighties, his luck ran out at the behest of the United States his type benefactors turned on him. And on January Twenty First Nineteen eighty-two the time military descended upon his headquarters in the town of Bond Hint Tech faced with complete annihilation. GHUNSA had no choice but to flee back to Burma taking the remains of his private army with him. They left behind fifteen tons of weaponry and millions of dollars worth of heroin processing equipment as bad as these hits were coon son knew that far more damaging was the loss of the Thai government's support without their protection coon saw was significantly weaker and everyone knew it January twenty first proved that his militia was no match for a real military. Embarrassed and betrayed ghunsa swore he wouldn't let himself be beaten. So easily he was still the self proclaimed King of the Golden Triangle and a world renowned freedom fighter. He would just have to figure out how to rebuild his operation in Burma. The problem with going back to Burma was that he was essentially a fugitive there. But looking at the political landscape, he decided to take a gamble. The Burmese military dictatorship was embroiled in ongoing battles with the Communist Party of Burma and a number of regional separatist groups. Despite his relatively high profile. Kuhn, saw wouldn't be the government's first priority a more difficult problem for him would be rebuilding his army. The only way he was going to hold onto his share of the drug market much less survive in war-torn northeast, Burma was through military strength. Kuhn. Saw and his Sean United Army started going after smaller drug organizations on the Burmese side of the border with each victory. The losing soldiers defected to Kuhn saw as they swept through the region, they secure key trafficking routes and territory for new heroin refineries. Seeing, just how quickly and forcefully Kuhn saw was able to rebuild the Taya Thirties realized they'd have to make amends with him. They appreciated that he was keeping the Burmese side of the border under control by taking over all the warring groups and their financial stakes in the heroine industry also meant they wanted to get back on the drug lords good side. They just needed to convince coon saw that it would be more lucrative for him to forgive and forget their trail luckily for the Thai officials coon Saws Pragmatism won out over his anger. In return for his forgiveness though he required that the Thai government's recognize him as the sole figurehead of the Sean State Independence Movement? This would legitimize his role as a freedom fighter on the international stage. However, in the years, he'd been in Thailand other Sean separatist groups with stronger ideological roots had expanded their bases in Burma. In particular the Sean State Army with whom Koon saw had an on again off again, relationship had become a military and political force to be reckoned with. If Kuhn saw wanted to even be the nominal leader of the rebel movement he was going to have to eliminate them. February nineteen eighty-three Kuhn saw shan united. Army. Swept into the homeowner valley whether Sean States Army kept its main base. It's close proximity to Thailand provided an easy escape route in case of attack from the Burmese government. But for Kuhn, saw, the valley was also prime real estate for opium trafficking coon says, troops faced little resistance the Shan State Army immediately realized they were outmatched and retreated Kuhn saw walked right in and took control of the home. Valley. In the village of Ho Mong he established his new headquarters declaring it the new capital of the future, a Free Sean State, but he wasn't finished coon sauce and a handful of his most trusted men into northern Thailand and assassinated several sean independence leaders. By the summer of Nineteen eighty-three, he had made himself one of the only viable leaders of the Sean 'cause and reclaimed his place atop the opium trade.

"Thousand row hinge were forced to flee their homes in northern raccoon state as a result of an utterly brutal and cruel campaign by the Burmese government in the Burmese military. So the situation for the Roma hinder is there are very, very few. A few hundred thousand remaining inside reckon state is which is where they predominant de live and we have over a million row hinge living in camps in Bangladesh, poor, why is Jeremy? Hunter? What can he realistically do. Good question. The problem for the British is that currently they may be looking at me and Ma as an economic opportunity, but instead the which is should be understanding. This is a duty from our country to do something to deal with the genocidal intent of the government because the British are the former colonial power in BMI was party, which is India at one point and the witches have a little bit of responsibility for the ethnic basis and ethnic horrors of the government. A penny. Do you think that by Jeremy hunt being there, he's giving some kind of legitimacy to genocidal government? Yes, I do. I mean, he will if he he's speaking to Unsan Suci. He's there for recognizing her as as a leader with speaking to. And I think he continues his visit continues the the idea that unsung Suci. Is somehow less responsible for what has happened to the row hinder. And I think that she's as culpable as gentlemen on NY and the generals that the that the fact finding mission from the UN have cited as genocide as but pulled. Truly, she has to cooperate to a degree with the military. I mean is she she coupable is polices. Here's she is. It is unfortunate because great store was held by by her in the past. But the the problem with Rohingyas it's not just the hinges. The Myanmar government have taken a similar hostile attitude to other ethnic groups around the country. And since Anton Shuki was in the government, they have reduced the level of conflict to an extent with some of the other groups like the shine and tone, but they're still fighting in other parts of the country. So the government kind of informally in a declared a war on non Bama people. And that's at the root of the difficulty here. This is then would you say penny taking place with her full cooperation and knowledge? Oh, yes. Oh, yes. I think that all of these, if you like atrocities have been committed against the Roe hinge, but against the Shan and particularly against the kitchen, and we have very little really about the the war against the kitchen and the the starvation and the human rights violations that are taking place in in kitchen state. But yes, these are under her watch. She is a clever woman. She understands what is happening. She has signed up to this deal with the military. She has and she's been an active participant. It's not just that she has been a silent partner. She has her her web pages have have talked about fake rapes fake news. She has defended the actions of her military. She has accompanied the generals on her very first visit to reconcile it off. After the worst of the operations were over, she is at one with the military, I'm afraid. So what do we do about it? Sunk Sion's already. Realistically, what can be used to alter the situation or diplomatic pressure is not just sort of saying, don't do this traps. I mean, there's a wide range of things at the wishes can do, including pressure on as Yan, which is right. The e. u. of south East Asia when which mammy and Mars a member, and also me and Ma. They are trying to develop their economy and therefore they are relying on investment necsports and this type of thing which can be restricted because of what they're doing to hindia and other ethnic groups. So there is a lot of pressure, and then there is the ICC international criminal court investigation plumbing suggestion on the genocidal intent of the government..
