This is an astounding conspiracy by neo-colonists like Benedict Rogers against Burma, trying to drive a wedge between the Bamars and their brethrens.

Look at the lettars carefully. Are they Greek? No! Are they Latin? No!

The Shan langauage is only a variation of the main stream Bamar language. Same with the Yakhine.

Myanmar means 'Burmese'. Neo-colonists like Benedict Rogers, who had written a biography of Seniore General ThanShwe without any interview with the subject, is just a Christian colonists.

Bamar is derived fromn Brahmah and has nothing to do with the Bamars although the Bamars adopted it. Every native of Burma is Bamar or Myanmar.

What has Christian solidarity got to do with Burma?
Well, only to create a broken Burma. Evil!

It is so laughable that the Shan language is similar to Thai. No!
Yes, the Thais and the Shans share common ancestry, from Yunan. But the Yunanese who had settled in Burma had become Burmese, Myranmar, Myanmar a long time ago.

The Normans conquered England and took over the Anglo-Saxon. So shouldn't England be divided between Norman english and Anglo-Saxon?

"The Norman English had treated the Irish very badly. do you know the term 'Beyond the Pale'?
The Pale (An Pháil in Irish) or the English Pale (An Pháil Shasanach), was the part of Ireland that was directly under the control of the English government in the late Middle Ages..."

Dear Myanmars, dear Burmese please do not let the divide-and-rule neo-colonists drive a wedge between us.

That creep Benedict Rogers is plainly anti-Buddhist. He is a Christian colonist.

He is the odious Christian colonist. Dearest Myanmars, open your eyes, study history and refuse to be brainwashed by the likes of Benedict Rogers. He is non-entity in England, trying to be someone at eh expense of the unity of Burma.

We know the likes of Benedict Rogers is so malevolent ot Burma.

Unite and throw out the neo-colonists like Benedict Rogers. The creep is trying to make anme for himself out of the gullability of some of our people.

We will have all ethnic variations of Bamar mainstream language resotred. It is our richness. Most languages of the world have dialects. spanish is Spain is not the same as Spanish in Colombia.There are variations of German.
Cornish English is different from standard English.

Get the point?
