an open letter to nyeinchan and shw (r)

Subject: Re: an open letter to nyeinchan and shwe

Dear Ko Myint Shwe,
     Thank for your message and we will never stop for the right things.  
I am one of the people who brought most numbers of NCGUB to the border 
and we helped NCGUB in all ways since we firmly believe that they are 
elected delegates.   When we brought out Dr. Sein Win and the group of 
some elected MPs, Dr. Sein Win couldn't walk for a long time and so we 
needed to bring him on our shoulder.  I hope he has not forgotten about 
that.   We worked for both NCGUB and NLD (LA) and at the same time we 
told them  about their weakness in proper ways and in a way that SLORC 
couldn't benefit from it.   Howver, it took about seven years and 
nothing was changed except some of our  members and many students on the 
border felt disappointed on the leadership and abandoned the movement on 
the border.  
      Once, Mi Mi Khine from NLD (LA) asked and talked to some NCGUB 
members in Chiang Mai for three hours and even Dr. Sein Win couldn't 
answer her questions and discussion except nodding.  Do you know what 
had happened to her?  She was later accused of being a spy and got 
arrested.  She has been released very recently but she is not well now 
(in her brain functioning).  
    As you saw, when we pointed out those things, Dr. Tint Swe (wrote as 
chan) and Maung Maung Latt accused me as a spy or in a way they wrote 
meant that I was a spy.   I hate this defensive action taken by such 
people but I have to face it.  I will never be a spy and I will never 
work for SLORC for sure.  I will never give up fighting to bring the 
truth.  Thank for your encouraging message.
With firm belief in sincere revolution.
(Ko Myint Shwe - I also lived occassionally with them and I also 
experienced many imporper things )  I wish they can analyse themselves 
and change not to be selfcentring and not to waste the revolution money.   
As you know even a child can make up a list of uses if he doesn't need 
to tell all where he gets money and how he spends it.
