KAREN STATE SITREP, AND BURMA Q&A
March 5, 2006
We have posted a situation report of the SPDC offensives now underway in the Karen Toungoo and Nyaunglaybin districts. This report discloses, among other things, the shooting deaths of five Karen civilians by Burma Army soldiers, and the deaths in combat with the Karen National Liberation Army of nineteen Burma Army soldiers.
Also, I was recently asked a series of questions about Burma and the policy of the United States Government, by an American student preparing for a debate competition. The questions and my responses are given here. Although I was not asked this specific question, I have included an analysis of the factors holding back a new popular uprising in Burma.
In addition, I was asked a series of questions by a Bulgarian activist about the general philosophy of Dictator Watch. These responses are posted on Activism 101.
