May 31, 2012 – In perhaps the most misleading headline of the day, the Guardian’s “Aung San Suu Kyi offers hope to Burmese migrants in Thailand” continues a narrative meant solely to build up the Wall Street-London contrived personality cult of “Nobel laureate” global “democracy icon” Aung San Suu Kyi, or as she is known to millions of horrifically exploited Burmese, “Mother Suu.” Suu Kyi (pronounced “Sue Chi”) began a global tour starting in Bangkok in neighboring Thailand after winning a parliamentary seat during a recent by-election.
During Suu Kyi’s visit to Bangkok, she addressed thousands of migrant workers from Myanmar who have fled Myanmar’s underdeveloped infrastructure and struggling economy after years of crippling Western sanctions, Western-backed insurrections, and political destabilizations. Suu Kyi addressed the weeping crowds holding signs saying “we want to go home,” promising them, “I will try my best for you,” while Andy Hall of the Institute for Population and Social Research claimed, “they have no voice, they can never speak up or stand up. So for Aung San Suu Kyi to visit is like a dream come true, someone who finally may be able to bring attention to their suffering.”
Image: Aung San Suu Kyi of Myanmar (Burma) shamelessly addresses migrant workers in Thailand who fled economic stagnation brought about by sanctions and “activism” supported by Suu Kyi herself. Designed to undermine and overthrow Suu Kyi’s political opponents, the only change coming to Myanmar is a foreign-proxy working her way toward the levers of power.
In reality,Suu Kyi has been the primary facilitator of that suffering, playing a leading role in Wall Street and London’s decades-long undermining and attempted overthrow of the Myanmar government. This in hope of installing Suu Kyi as head of a newly recolonized Southeast Asian client-regime.
Suu Kyi has been a vocal supporter of the very crippling sanctions, which she maintains were “a tool for change,” that have scattered fleeing migrant workers across Southeast Asia where they have faced unsafe working conditions, exploitation by their employers, and low salaries. In a statement of servile fealty to her Western backers, Suu Kyi recently said of the suspension of those sanctions upon her election into parliament, “I’m not against the suspension of sanctions as long as the people of the United States feel that this is the right thing to do at the moment.”
And fealty Suu Kyi must show, as her public image, her entire opposition movement, and the vast propaganda network that supports it both within Myanmar and beyond, has been entirely funded by the US State Department and the British government for years.
In “Myanmar (Burma) “Pro-Democracy” Movement a Creation of Wall Street & London,” it was documented that Suu Kyi and organizations supporting her, including local propaganda fronts like the New Era Journal, the Irrawaddy, and the Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) radio, have received millions of dollars a year from the Neo-Conservative chaired National Endowment for Democracy, convicted criminal and Wall Street speculator George Soros’ Open Society Institute, and the US State Department itself, citing Britain’s own “Burma Campaign UK (.pdf).”

And not only does the US State Department in tandem with Western corporate media provide Aung San Suu Kyi extensive political, financial, and rhetorical backing, they provide operational capabilities as well, allowing her opposition movement to achieve Western objectives throughout Myanmar. The latest achievement of this operational capability successfully blocked the development of Myanmar’s infrastructure by halting a joint China-Mynamar dam project that would have provided thousands of jobs, electricity, state-revenue, flood control, and enhanced river navigation for millions. Suu Kyi and her supporting network of NGOs, as well as armed militants in Myanmar’s northern provinces conducted a coordinated campaign exploiting both “environmental” and “human rights” concerns that in reality resulted in Myanmar’s continual economic and social stagnation.
So while throngs of people, expelled from their home nation of Myanmar due to dismal prospects seek refuge and hope in Wall Street and London’s created character, “Aung San Suu Kyi,” it is her, and everything she represents in reality that have caused, and will continue to perpetuate their plight indefinitely. Her world tour, unwarranted for a mere member of parliament, including a speech before the British Parliament in London, is another attempt to build up yet another fictional character to mislead and exploit world opinion worldwide.
Like fellow “Nobel laureate” US President Barack Obama who has managed to lead America’s left from progressive hope and into an orgy of warmongering and global blood-lust dwarfing in scope and ambition that of previous proxy-in-chief George W. Bush, Suu Kyi attempts to pull at the strings of well-intentioned humanitarians everywhere. This is not for realizing the democratic aspirations of the people of Myanmar, but to use such aspirations as cover for the recolonization of Britain’s lost colony of Burma, and the perpetuation of global disparity and inequities the very same well-intentioned people pulled into this ploy believe they are fighting against.
