|Burma Wants to Build a Nuclear Bomb|

Based on evidence from a soldier who defected, Burma has begun a nuclear weapons program, according to a documentary.
The BBC News reports that, "Major Sai Thein Win provided Norway-based broadcaster Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) with files and photographs describing experiments with uranium."
A former United Nations' inspector claimed the evidence suggested Burma intends to build nuclear weapons instead of power plants.
Nonetheless, nuclear experts believe the ruling junta has a long way to go until they succeed.
The revelations were exposed a day after a United States' senator cancelled a tour to Burma due to concerns over its alleged nuclear ambitions.
In the documentary called 'Burma's Nuclear Ambitions,' Maj. Sai discloses documents and photographs he claims originate from a factory that was constructing prototypes for nuclear components.
According to the BBC, "Maj. Sai is a mechanical engineer who worked on machinery parts and visited the Burmese nuclear battalion in Thabeikkyin, says the documentary."
He offered pictures supposedly of machines which can be utilized to convert uranium compounds for use in nuclear fuel or a nuclear bomb.
Former inspector with the International Atomic Energy Agency, a UN watchdog, Robert Kelley, claimed he insists that Burma was likely mining uranium and exploring nuclear technology "useful only for weapons."
He writes in an online article for DVB that, "the information provided by (Major) Sai and other reporters from Burma clearly indicates that the regime has the intent to go nuclear and it is ... expending huge resources along the way."

Whenever Burma sends terrorists into the USA to attack civilians and property in any manner, then ANY PRESIDENT with cojones would merely return the favor 100 fold upon their military and nation.
Might allows a nation to make right. Peace never came from drinking tea together and writing love songs and poetry. That was the fantasy of the pansyminded loons of liberal socialism.
