Divided we lost. Burmese are deeply saddened to learn the decision over the maritime dispute between Burma and Bangladesh and we must object this verdict. After studyingthe statement, Burmese do not believe that it is a fair decision.
Above all, Burmese are totally upset to learn that the decision cannot be appealed and so it is a sham. Time for all political and ethnics leaders of Burma to unite against such unfair decision for the mother land regardless of the political stand or beliefs.
All the Burmese must mobilize our public outcry before too late so as to reject Court’s ruling. It would be much stronger if leaders like U Tin Oo, U Win Tin, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, Ko Min Ko Naing, Ko Ko Gyi, U Khun Htun Oo, and ethnic leaders join in showing solidarity and support.
Burma lost sea territory since the nation is so divided due to illegitimate military regime ruling the country combining with sanction which deter Burma not possible to hire international law firms, which deter Burma foreign minister to travel Germany attending court and no information and awareness whatsoever in Burma regarding the matter.
With reference to the HISTORY, in 1800s, the beginning of the problem was because of British who unlawfully and illegally hoisting her flag on the St. Martin’s island (in Burmese Shin-Ma-Phyu Island) which is Burma’s territory. By taking advantage of advance in weapons, British provoked Burmese into the war.
Burmese King responded by sending the troops to destroy the invading British troops. With the help of Bengali and Indian mercenaries, British navy, the British attacked Rangoon. British troops stationed at the Burmese Buddhist’s holy land, Shwe-Da-Gon Pagoda, as the fortress. In short, in 1824 Burma lost first Anglo-Burmese war.
British annexed the St. Martin’s island into British territory which is Bengal. Before 1824 in reality — Assam, Chittagong, Manipur, Kachar, and St. Martin islands are all belonged to Burma.
In past recent years, we are very upset to learn co-military exercise between US and Bangladesh navies after the stand-off between Burma and Bangladesh regarding the dispute over sea territory.
Burmese would like to send the message to the USA Government that even though we don’t agree with military government but it doesn’t mean that we will stand still and do nothing in regard to external threats. We will fight against them. USA navy should stay away from Burma and Bangladesh sea dispute.
Nothing is more important than NATIONAL interest. Nothing at all! National interest is all combined together. We all must be united fighting against external threats such as Bangladesh.
British government should stay away from this matter since British are the one who created such the historic problems. Rohingya problems are the same. British created them.
Would British give away Falkland Islands to Argentina since these islands are closer to Argentina? British were wrong to go war against Argentina regarding Falkland’s islands? Margret Thatcher was wrong?
If we look at the Spratly Islands crisis in South China Sea several nations such as China, Taiwan, Philippines, Brunei, Vietnam and some other countries are claiming over such a group of small islands. Certainly, they are ready to take any action to protect their sovereignty.
U Thein Sein Government giving in Bangladesh. They are a bunch of coward generals ruling the country illegally. Shame on you all. Burmese Navy, Army and Air Force what are they doing now? Are they truly capable? Are they truly efficient? Are they truly reliable?
What is the point having the 500, 000 soldiers in the military? What is the point military using half of the nation’s budget? Gen. Than Shwe, Gen. Maung Aye, and Col. Aung Thaung are all coward thieves.
For Burma Democratic Concern (BDC), we totally objected the verdict. We don’t accept the court’s ruling. Our fellow Burmese, please show your OBJECTION against the court decision. We can’t give away our sea and related territory to Bangladesh.
LET’S STAND UP TOGETHER FOR OUR MOTHERLAND– BURMA!
Yes We Can!
We Will Win!
