Than Shwe will follow Saddam Hu-Sein

Than Shwe

will follow

Saddam Hu-Sein

In Burmese, Sein is diamond and Shwe means Gold.

Usually Sein and Shwe are regarded as companions or paired items.

Nowadays there is a Tabong (superstitiously believed, widespread sayings amongst people with expectation and anticipation with the eager hope and wishes to come true) that_

Shwe would follow Sein” or in other words

“After Sein it is Shwe’s turn.”

Saddam Hussein (or SEIN=diamond in Burmese) is no more free to roam and terrorize its hapless people, thank to the rescuing forces of UN, US and Allied NATO forces but Than Shwe (SHWE=gold in Burmese) alone is roaming freely terrorizing the whole Myanmar or Burma. Now Yangon Capital is demoted and similar to the status of Basra. Pyinmana is now promoted to be capital and is about 300 miles in north of Yangon. So now Pyinmana follows and is similar in status with its sister capital Baghdad which is also about 300 miles north of Basra.I was wondering whether Than Shwe and cohorts could avoid the International Criminal Court by following the fate of Hitler or Milosevic by deciding to ‘suicide’. I think that Than Shwe would follow and show off like Saddam Hussein by arguing his own case at the International Criminal Court.

Saddam Hu-Sein, after capture Than Shwe, yet not captured
Sein = Diamond in Burmese, Diamond first Shwe = Gold in Burmese, Gold follows
. Note: During the colonial time, if I am not wrong, Burmese Patriotic Monk U Ottama paste the stamp on the envelope of a letter with the King’s picture upside-down and written below that he had pasted the dog’s head in reverse. Sorry, I am a coward, I dare not yet do like that.
Born in April 28, 1937. Born in February 2, 1933 only
Saddam Hussein was born in the town of Al-Awja, 8 miles (13 km) from the Iraqi town of Tikrit, to a family of shepherds.It is in the central and nothern part of the country. Than Shwe was born in Kyaukse, a small town about 20 miles near Mandalay. It is in the central and nothern part of the country.Same as Saddam, Than Shwe’s father passed away when he was about 10 years old and became an orphan. Both his parents were pure Burmese Buddhist but his mother later remarried to a Burmese-Muslim man. Than Shwe was teased as a “KALA LAY” by all the friends. Than Shwe’s wife, Kyaing Kyanig, is not a pure Pa-O nor Kayin as all the people believed. She is half Chinese. She gives up all the Chinese customs and pretends to be a Pure Burmese. She secretly kept the tradition of worshiping the Ghosts and ancestors and secretly cerebrate the Hungry Ghost festival yearly.
Later in his life, relatives from his native Tikrit would become some of his closest advisors and supporters. Later in his life, some relatives from his native Kyaukse are favoured in promotion, transfer and given some scholarships to study abroad.
His stepfather, Ibrahim al-Hassan, treated Saddam harshly after his return. He was abusive and forced the young boy to steal chickens and sheep for resale. He worked in the Burmese postal service, but at age 20 enlisted in the army,
As president, Saddam ran an authoritarian government. As the Head of state, Than Shwe also runs the authoritarian government.
Pan-Arab nationalism of Gamal Abdel Nasser in Egypt profoundly influence the young Ba’athist, Sadaam Hussein even up to the present day. Burmese Military Chauvanist ideas of General Ne Win profoundly influence Than Shwe, even up to the present day.
Iraqi society is divided along lines of language, religion and ethnicity. Burmese society is also divided along lines of language, religion and ethnicity.
Saddam made frequent references to the Abbasid period, when Baghdad was the political, cultural, and economic capital of the Arab world. He also promoted Iraq’s pre-Islamic role as the ancient cradle of civilization Mesopotamia, alluding to such historical figures as Nebuchadrezzar and Hammurabi. Than Shwe made frequent references to the Kongbong period, when Mandalay was the political, cultural, and economic capital of the Burma. He also promoted Burma’s pre-Buddhist role of Ayi Gyi’s as the ancient cradle of civilization in pre Pagan period by encouraging his SPDC Soldiers to use rape as a weapon on Ethnic Minorities. He claimed to be decendent of last Burmese King Thibaw.
Saddam use clones to avoid aassassination attempts. Than Shwe read about the Saddam clones and start day dreaming that the real last Burmese King Thibaw was not captured nor exiled to India. King’s clone took his place and the real King Thibaw runaway to nearby Kyaukse and Than Shwe foolishly thought that he is the real desendent of Thibaw.
Sometimes he would also be portrayed as a devout Muslim, wearing full headdress and robe, praying regularly. Sometimes he would also be portrayed as a devout Buddhist, donating and praying at monastries and pagodas.
Saddam married Sajida Talfah in 1958. Than Shwe’s wife Daw Kyaing Kyaing, who is an ethnic Pa-o, plays a major role in politics. She is known to have taken bribes, and was involved in a public bribery scandal in 2004.
Saddam headed the Baath Socialist Party founded by his predecessors. Than Shwe’s stepfather Ne Win founded the Burma Socialist Programme Party, Shwe inherited it and changed the name to Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA). Even that name, emblem and the organization form is the replica of Ne Win’s creation during 50’s first coup.
The Ba’ath Party’s paramilitary, the People’s Army acted as a counterweight against any coup attempts by the regular armed forces. Union Solidarity and Development Association (USDA) is one of the strong arms supporting Than Shwe only.
In addition to the People’s Army, the Department of General Intelligence (Mukhabarat) was the most notorious arm of the state security system, feared for its use of torture and assassination. In addition to the People’s Army or Myanmar Tatmadaw, the Department of Military Intelligence (MI) was the most notorious arm of the state security system, feared for its use of torture and assassination.
Saddam Hussein ordered the suppression and ethnic cleansing of Kurds and Shiites. Than Shwe ordered the ethnic cleansing of Ethnic Minorities and Rohingyas. He continued the persecution of Myanmar’s ethnic minorities, such as the Karen and Shan peoples. He launched a campaign of repression against the people that forced them to flee to neighbouring countries as refugees.
DujailIn 1982, during a visit to Dujail, Saddam was to address and praise the city’s residents for their support and contributions in the Iran conflict, when an assassination attempt was mounted against him. The town of Dujail lies 40 km (25 miles) north of Baghdad; Saddam’s security forces in return attacked the city, killing and executing up to 137 of its inhabitants, including a number of children. Around 1,500 townspeople were sent to prison and tortured. The entire town was also punished by having 1,000 square kilometres (250,000 acres) of farmland destroyed; replanting was only permitted 10 years later. The events in Dujail became the subject of criminal charges following Saddam’s overthrow in 2003. DepayinIt happened later on 30 May 2003, hundreds of government-organized thugs carried out a well-organized and premeditated attack on members and supporters of the National League for Democracy, killing, according to eyewitness accounts, at least 70 people. Although this was but one of many atrocities committed by the Government of Myanmar against its citizens, it should be regarded with particular seriousness given the number of persons killed at one time, the extent to which the event appears to have been planned in advance with the connivance of the highest authorities, and because it directly targeted the embodiment of popular democratic aspirations in Myanmar, Daw Aung San Suu Kyi. ( Asia Legal Resource Centre) Daw Suu and many NLD members were sent TOJAIL.
Iraq signed an aid pact with the Soviet Union in 1972, and arms were sent along with several thousand advisers. Burma secretly signed an aid pact with the Soviet Union in 2002, and arms were sent along with several thousand advisers.
Saddam initiated Iraq’s nuclear enrichment project in the 1980s, with French assistance. It was destroyed by an Israeli air strike. Than Shwe initiated Myanmar’s nuclear enrichment project in the 2000’s, with Russia, North Korea, China and Pakistan’s assistance. It would be destroyed later by an US air strike.
Cooperation between the United States and the Soviet Union made possible the passage of resolutions in the United Nations Security Council giving Iraq a deadline to leave Kuwait and approving the use of force if Saddam did not comply with the timetable. We hope and pray that similar cooperation between the United States and the Soviet Union would soon made possible the passage of resolutions in the United Nations Security Council giving Myanmar a deadline to leave Daw Aung San Suu Kyi and NLD alone and approving the use of force if Than Shwe did not comply with the timetable to implement democracy.
Saddam ignored the Security Council deadline. With unanimous backing from the Security Council, a U.S.-led coalition launched round-the-clock missile and aerial attacks on Iraq, beginning January 16, 1991. Than Shwe is also likely to ignore the Security Council deadline. With unanimous backing from the Security Council, a U.S.-led coalition could launched round-the-clock missile and aerial attacks on Pyinmana Naypyidaw’s Military HQ.
In the end, the over-manned and under-equipped Iraqi army proved unable to compete on the battlefield with the highly mobile coalition land forces and their overpowering air support. The same fate may follow in the end, the over-manned and under-equipped Myanmar Tatmadaw proved unable to compete on the battlefield with the highly mobile coalition land forces and their overpowering air support.
Some 175,000 Iraqis were taken prisoner and casualties were estimated at approximately 20,000 according to U.S. data, with other sources pinning the number as high as 100,000. No one know how many SPDC soldiers would be taken as prisoners and the number of casualities yet.
Iraq‘s ethnic and religious divisions, together with the resulting postwar devastation, laid the groundwork for new rebellions within the country. We have to learn lessons from this and try to avoid those undesired side effects. We need to consider this urgently.
Saddam’s sons, Uday Hussein and Qusay Hussein, became increasingly powerful and carried out a private reign of terror. Than Shwe children especially daughters and illegal son-in-law became increasingly powerful and carried out a private reign of corruption and monopoly in economy and government contracts.
In his January 2002 state-of-the-union message to Congress, President George W. Bush spoke of an “axis of evil” comprising Iran, North Korea, and Iraq. Moreover, Bush announced that he would possibly take action to topple the Iraqi government. President George W. Bush also put Burma in the “axis of evil“.
Sadaam asked his people to eat one meal only. Than Shwe ordered Kyaw San to advise people to be thrifty and eat less.
Hidden in the underground places. Trying to follow his methods of hiding in the underground places. New Pyinmana Naypyidaw palace had underground bunkers and tunnels to escape.
Since 1982, foreign observers believed that this department operated both at home and abroad in their mission to seek out and eliminate perceived opponents of Saddam Hussein. Since 1992, we all believed that Than Shwe’s spies and assacins had operated both at home and abroad in their mission to seek out and eliminate perceived opponents of Than Shwe.
Learned many things from his uncle, especially the lesson that he should never back down from his enemies, no matter how superior their numbers or capabilities. Learned many things from his godfather Ne Win, especially the lesson that he should never back down from his enemies, no matter how superior their numbers or capabilities.

Saddam was involved in the plot to assassinate Prime Minister Qassim. Army officers with ties to the Ba’ath Party overthrew Qassim in a coup in 1963. Than Shwe plotted the forced resignation of General Saw Maung, the house arrest of General Ne Win and the arrests and prosecutions Ne Win’s son-in-law, grand children and General Khin Nyunt.
In 1976, Saddam rose to the position of general in the Iraqi armed forces. He rapidly became the strongman of the government. In 1960, he was promoted to the rank of captain. After the military coup which ousted Prime Minister U Nu in 1962, Than Shwe continued rising through the ranks. He reached lieutenant colonel in 1972, colonel in 1978, Commander of the Military District of the South West in 1983, Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, brigadier-general and Vice-Minister of Defence in 1985 and then major-general in 1986. He also obtained a seat on the ruling party’s Central Executive Committee.
The Ba’ath’s ruling clique named Saddam vice-chairman of the Iraqi Revolutionary Command Council and vice president of Iraq. When the State Law and Order Restoration Council (SLORC) was created as a response to the bloody protests of 1988, Than Shwe was appointed as one of its 21 members. He grew to become the right-hand man of then ruler, General Saw Maung.,
As Iraq’s weak and elderly President Ahmed Hassan al-Bakr became increasingly unable to execute his duties, Saddam took on an increasingly prominent role as the face of the government both internally and externally.Saddam consolidated power in a nation riddled with profound tensions. On 23 April 1992, Saw Maung unexpectedly was forced to resign, citing health reasons, and Than Shwe replaced him as Chairman of the Council, head of state, Secretary of Defence and commander-in-chief of the armed forces.the ruler of Myanmar (Burma), serving as chairman of the State Peace and Development Council since April 23, 1992.
Long before Saddam, Iraq had been split along social, ethnic, religious, and economic fault lines. Long before Than Shwe, Myanmar had been split along social, ethnic, religious, and economic fault lines:
Saddam implemented a national infrastructure campaign that made great progress in building roads, promoting mining, and developing other industries. Than Shwe implemented a national infrastructure campaign that made great progress in building roads and bridges but all are in low quality.

He was famous as an interrogator and torturer at the infamous “Palace of the End.” The specialist in psychological warfare. Leading the slaughter of thousands of demonstrators, numerous ethnic minorities, Muslims and Rohingyas.
United States-led invasion of Iraq reached Baghdad on April 9, 2003. We all are waiting for the time United States-led invasion of Burma/Myanmar reached Pyinmana Naypyidaw.
Saddam’s government repressed movements that it deemed threatening, particularly those of ethnic or religious groups that sought independence or autonomy. Than Shwe’s SPDC government repressed movements that it deemed threatening, particularly those of ethnic or religious groups that sought independence or autonomy
Remained a popular hero among many Arabs for standing up to Israel and the United States, Regrettably Than Shwe was and is never regarded as a Hero.
Saddam was deposed by the United States and its allies during the 2003 invasion of Iraq. We hope and pray that Than Shwe would be deposed soon by the United States and its allies during the invasion of Burma/Myanmar.
Captured by U.S. forces on December 13, 2003, Future fugitive. He also would be definitely captured by the opposition forces.
Saddam is standing trial charged with crimes against humanity before the Iraq Special Tribunal, established by the Iraqi Interim Government. Going to be indicted soon by International Criminal Court or tribunal. Multiple counts of crimes against humanity extermination, murder.Interpol warrant coming soon.
The Iraqi government and military collapsed within three weeks of the beginning of the U.S.-led 2003 invasion of Iraq on March 20. The United States made at least two attempts to kill Saddam with targeted air strikes, but both failed to hit their target. By the beginning of April, Coalition forces occupied much of Iraq. The resistance of the much-weakened Iraqi Army either crumbled or shifted to guerrilla tactics, and it appeared that Saddam had lost control of Iraq. He was last seen in a video which purported to show him in the Baghdad suburbs surrounded by supporters. When Baghdad fell to the Coalition on April 9, Saddam was still preparing to leave. The SPDC government and military could also collapsed within a couple of weeks of the beginning of the U.S.-led invasion of Burma/Myanmar.For the: targeted air strikes. beginning of occupation Coalition forces much of Myanmar. The resistance of the much-weakened Myanmar- Tatmadaw either crumbled or shifted to guerrilla tactics. Than Shwe lost control of Myanmar. His last seen in a video which purported to show him in the Kyaukse suburbs surrounded by supporters. When Pyinmana fell to the Coalition Than Shwe would still preparing to leave … coming soon. Please wait and see on the silver screen.
According to his eldest daughter Raghad Hussein he was by this point aware of the “betrayal” of a number of key figures involved in the defence of Baghdad. It appears there was a lot of confusion between Iraqi commanders in different sectors of the capital and communication between them and Saddam and between Saddam and his family were becoming increasingly difficult. According to his son-in-law U Tayza he was by this point aware of the “betrayal” of a number of key figures involved in the defence of Naypyidaw. It appears there was a lot of confusion between Tatmadaw commanders in different sectors of the capital and communication between them and Than Shwe and between Than Shwe and his family were becoming increasingly difficult. (possible senerio in Myanmar soon.)
Saddam Hussein was at the top of the “most-wanted list,” and many of the other leaders of the Iraqi government were arrested, but extensive efforts to find him had little effect. Than Shwe would get that place top of the “most-wanted list,” And many of the other leaders of the SPDC government would be arrested. Than Shwe would probably go into hiding – in the mountainous Kyat Pyae area protected by paramilitaries or Kyant Phuts.
On December 14, 2003, the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA) of Iran first reported that Saddam Hussein had been arrested, citing Kurdish leader Jalal Talabani. These reports were soon confirmed by other members of the Governing Council, by U.S. military sources, and by British prime minister Tony Blair. In a press conference in Baghdad, shortly afterwards, the U.S. civil administrator in Iraq, Paul Bremer, formally announced the capture of Saddam Hussein by saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, we got him.” Bremer reported that Saddam had been captured at approximately 8:30 p.m. Iraqi time on December 13, in an underground “spider hole” at a farmhouse in ad-Dawr near his home town Tikrit, in what was called Operation Red Dawn. [24] Bremer presented video footage of Saddam in custody. Could be arrested and later indicted for the multiple counts of genocide. Assault at Depayin, crimes against humanity, , genocide, grave breaches of the 1949 Geneva conventions, murder, plunder, arresting the leaders of Shan leaders and NLD leaders. Persecutions on political, racial and religious grounds, persecutions, inhumane acts (forcible transfer). Violations of the laws or customs of war (Article 3 of the Statute – murder, unlawfully inflicting terror upon civilians.
On June 30, 2004, Saddam Hussein (held in custody by U.S. forces at Camp Cropper in Baghdad), and 11 senior Ba’athist officials were handed over legally (though not physically, as there is, at present, no adequate Iraqi prison to hold them) to the interim Iraqi government to stand trial for war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide. Particular attention will be paid to his activities in violent campaigns against the Kurds in the north during the Iran-Iraq War, and against the Shiites in the south in 1991 and 1999 to put down revolts. Just wait and see on the silver screen.
On July 1, 2004, the first legal hearing in Saddam’s case was held before the Iraqi Special Tribunal. Than Shwe is going to be indicted together with Vice-chairman of SPDC: Maung Aye, Prime minister: Soe Winand SPDC soldiers, commanders, Police personnals, Kyant Phuts and numerous collobrators. etc.
USA’s efforts to get a mandate for Iraq were previously blocked by China, Russia and others. USA’s efforts to get a mandate for Burma/Myanmar are now blocked by China, Russia and others.

If we want to buy a diamond ring we used to look at the diamond first: its quality, caret size, clearity, cutting, colour to determine the price. Then only we look at the gold’s quality. So it is natural “SEIN” or diamond first and “SHWE” or gold follows.

THAN SHWE try to avert or ward off that fate by ‘Yataya Che’ with the help of astrologers and manufactured a rumour that all the GOLDS (SHWE) in the country are empty causing the gold prices out of control. And in Burmese we used to say SEIN SHWE YADANA. So After Sein it must be Shwe.

We all Burmese citizens of all the races and all the different religions are praying that Shwe would follow Sein soon.
