He is known as "The Man Who Broke the Bank of England" because of his US$1 billion in investment profits during the 1992 Black Wednesday UK currency crisis.[6][7][8]

Why soros visits Burma at this time - whilst the sanctions are still in place - is a very serious issue Burma must think about.

Can he do any good for Burma? Will he do any good for Burma? Impossible. No foreigner goes to Burma without vested interest. No foreigner loves Burma as Burmese do.

In the West businessmen and bankers bankroll election campaigns. How were the funds provided by Soros Foundation used? For publicity campaign for Suu Kyi Aris?
It is payback time now? So soon?

Burmese government and politicians must be very careful with people like Soros. A poor country like Burma can become a slave to them.
Take this warning very seriously.
