A Burmese defector helping out on an investigation by Democratic Voice of Burma (DVB) reveals Burma is embarking on a programme to develop nuclear weapons!
Sai Thein Win is a former defence enginner and missile expert and deputy commander of a highly classified military factory that was the headquarters of the army's nuclear battalion. He was tasked by the Burmese government to make prototype components for missile and nuclear programs.
What's more surprising about the investigation is Singapore's possible involvement in Burma's evil plan. From DVB:
Two companies in Singapore with German connections sold many machine tools to the Burmese government, notably the Department of Technical and Vocational Education (DTVE). DTVE is closely associated with the Department of Atomic Energy (DAE) which is subordinate to the Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST). A great deal of information is known about people and organizations in this chain. DTVE is probably a front for military purchasing for weapons of mass destruction; that is to say nuclear, chemical and biological weapons and the means to deliver them, largely missiles....
Burma has also purchased high quality machine tools from a German machine tool broker in Singapore that can be used for weapons of mass destruction manufacture. These tools could be used to make many things but they are of a size and quality that are not consistent with student training, the declared end use.
