A very powerful tool of an American foreign policy for regime change. NED is a very powerful non-state actor of the US foreign policy! It gives money to politicians who are willing to sell their soul! People like BABI is so indebted to this group that if he does not succeed he will be then treated by NED with extreme prejudice!
I was reported that the US-based National Endowment for Democracy (NED) is not just a bipartisan agency for promoting democracy, but an agency that has connections with the CIA and Zionist powers in America. Read more here!
NED carries out secret work that had previously been carried out by the CIA to overthrow foreign countries. This happened in Honduras, Chile, Grenada and anywhere else in the South America and the world where government that are deemed not friendly towards US interest will be overthrown.
A classic case of Neo-Imperialism and Neo-Colonialism that that I have studied in school three decades ago that I thought was a stupid subject, turns out to be all true.
In the case of where any super power or big power could not simply invade a country deemed hostile to this big power it will send in a "major actor" in the form of an NGO such as the NED to infiltrate party or parties considered to be opposed to this perceived government.
In the case of Myanmar, a big country with a huge natural resources such as oil and gas and others, this country just want to be left alone to cultivate or nurture its own wealth.
The US wants Myanmar to "allow" its petroleum reserve to be managed probably by Haliburton, a big and corrupt and nasty US Multi-National Corporation (MNC). But instead Myanmar would rather deal with China, for example.
US said NO! Tries to employ its allies such as ASEAN to talk Myanmar to be reasonable, but ASEAN said "nyet"! So the next best thing is to use a force from within to force a regime change.
Thus came major actors like the NED cultivating Western-inclined politicians such Myanmar's Aung San Suu Kyi (ASSK) and her National League of Democracy (NLD), and Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) and his Pakatsan Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) doing the bidding for the petroleum-hungry superpower countries, such as the US via bipartisan NGOs like NED!
My advise to my prime minister is not to pay a courtesy call on ASSK during his official state visit to Myanmar, as much as he may not like Barack Obama, for example, on his state visit to Malaysia to pay a courtesy call to BABI!
This is my two cents worth for today!
