Bomb-maker killed, four hurt in Burma: report Posted Sun Jan 13, 2008 4:02pm AEDT
State-run press in Burma reports one person was killed and four wounded in a bomb blast in the country's central region, which authorities blame on an ethnic rebel group battling the military government.
A 25-year-old suspected bomb-maker was killed late Saturday (local time) when the device went off prematurely near a circus in Bago Division, north of the main city Rangoon, the government-run New Light of Myanmar newspaper said.
The newspaper blamed the Karen National Union (KNU), which has been waging a nearly six-decade long insurgency, and said that a gun, ammunition and explosives were recovered from the body of the dead man.
A 28-year-old man was arrested at the scene, the paper said, while four bystanders - three women and a four-year-old boy - were slightly wounded.
A small bomb killed a woman on Friday near the railway station serving the remote new capital of Naypyidaw.
The newspaper says she was also with the KNU and had been killed by accident while attempting to detonate the bomb.
The paper says that an unnamed "major group from abroad that is desirous of practising hegemony over Myanmar (Burma) provided terrorist insurgent saboteurs with cash and related equipment with the intention of harming the public".
Burma's military regime has previously accused exiled dissident groups and the United States - one of the junta's fiercest critics - of encouraging unrest and trying to install a puppet government.

seriously: I think Obama should have made them liquidate all their assets both business AND PERSONAL so they could climb over their own pile of s***; instead of expecting the American tax payers to do it.

seriously: Wake up people! Don't you realize that WE THE PEOPLE don't need the rich, THEY NEED US...to do the work that makes them richer so they don't have to clean their own toilets; and all we get is industrialized meats and crops, GMO's, antibiotic resistance.

seriously: Patented seed crops, running small farmer's out of business, toxic waste, poisoned water, dirty air, deforestation, global warming. By the way, who even wants to live in a GLOBAL GOVERNMENT world with a GLOBAL ECONOMY?

seriously: America should be more like Switzerland, fix our own 'broken wagon' and let the rest of the world fix theirs...it's not an U.S.A. problem. Screw oil, it pollutes the earth...GO SOLAR, WIND, WATER POWER! Screw the utility companies!

seriously: That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it. Best way to topple the rich...eliminate money and go back to the barter system; let the rich wipe their own bums and clean their own toilets...for a change! No more "Groom of the stool" for them.
