Bull Shit FTAs promoting imbalance of flow between free movement of goods and manpower

With the increasing GLOBLISATION there is an increasing unbalanced movements of goods across the border when compare to the migration of work forces. UNHCR and UN should talk to the countries that are pushing for FTAs (free trade agreement) through WTO, negotiating individually or in groups for various forms of mutual treaties of Free Trade Area (FTA) just to get permission to increase the free flow of their goods and products. Why should there be a desire to keep out the people, professionals, skilled and unskilled labour?  UNHCR and UN should initiate, persuade, negotiate, and press for free manpower mobilization to balance the socio-economic imbalances around the world.

The worst Anti-Muslim Statement

by the Muslim leader of the the year award

goes to Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi

Malaysia Media, Main Stream as well as Internet and the TV News failed to report the Stupid Un-Islamic Interview of the Malaysian PM of that time.

Malaysians hiding their heads in the sand, like an ostrich is like foolishly ignoring their problem of IGNORING THE PLIGHT OF FELLOW MUSLIMS, while hoping it will magically vanish while they are having a nap.

( Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia) A nap is a short period of sleep, usually in the day time. Naps are frequently taken when one becomes drowsy during the day or otherwise wants to feel awake …By the way, NAP is ‘said to be’ the infamous habit of that PM even during the public functions.

    Quotations for Independence Day of New Burma

    Quotations for Independence Day of New Burma

    Those who deny freedom to others (Myanmar Military leaders) deserve it not for themselves.  ~Abraham Lincoln

    “In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved.”
    – Independence Day Quotes by Franklin D. Roosevelt

    “Democracy is the government of the people, by the people, for the people”-
    – Independence Day Quotes by Abraham Lincoln

    (We must read this as Myanmar Democracy must be the government of the people,  by the people but not by the Military, for the people”)
     

    This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.  ~Elmer Davis

    For what avail the plough or sail, or land or life, if freedom fail?  ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

    Liberty is the breath of life to nations.  ~George Bernard Shaw

    I prefer liberty with danger to peace with slavery.  ~Author Unknown

    “How can one (Myanmar people) be compelled to accept slavery of Myanmar Military?  I simply refuse to do the master’s bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I (Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, NLD and people of Burma) who am the victor and not he, for he (Than Shwe, Saw Mg, Ne Win and SPDC) have failed in getting me (People of Burma) to do what he (the Myanmar Military) wanted done.”
    – Independence Day Quotes by Mahatma Gandhi

    “One individual may die for an idea; but that idea will, after his death, incarnate itself in a thousand lives. That is how the wheel of evolution moves on and the ideas and dreams of one nation are bequeathed to the next’”
    – Independence Day Quotes by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose

    “You give me your blood and I will give you Independence!”
    – Independence Day Quotes by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose

    We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.  ~William Faulkner
