 Myanmar has developed the capacity and is now using laser isotope separation, a technique for developing nuclear weapons.

Myanmar develops nuclear weapon http://www.weeklyblitz.net/2522/myanmar-develops-nuclear-weapon September 2, 2012 Myanmar’s military junta has secretly gained nuclear
power and soon the country will emerge as the third nuclear nation in South Asia. The issue of developing nuclear bomb by Myanmar came into media’s focal point following broadcast of a documentary in Al Jazeera Television.

The documentary was produced by Norway-based Democratic Voice of Burma [DVB]. Shortly before the film was due to be broadcast, US Senator Jim Webb announced he was postponing his scheduled trip to Myanmar in response to allegations in the documentary.

“Until there is further clarification on these matters, I believe it
would be unwise and potentially counterproductive for me to visit
Burma,” Webb, who is the Democratic chairman of the US Senate Foreign
Relations Committee Subcommittee on East Asia and Pacific Affairs,
told reporters.

The producers of the DVB documentary say evidence of Myanmar’s nuclear programme has come from top-secret material smuggled out of the country over several years, including hundreds of files and other
evidence provided by Sai Thein Win, a former major in Myanmar’s army.
Journalist Bertil Lintner was involved in reviewing materials during
extensive authentication processes. The investigation into Myanmar’s
secret nuclear activities were conducted by international arms experts
and others during the report’s five-year production. In the strategic
footsteps of an Asian nuclear power, Myanmar’s leaders are also
building a complex network of tunnels, bunkers and other underground
installations where they and their military hardware would be hidden
against any external aerial attack, including presumably from the
United States.

Based on testimonies and photographs supplied by high-ranking military
defectors, the documentary will show for the first time how Myanmar
has developed the capacity and is now using laser isotope separation,
a technique for developing nuclear weapons. It will also show how
machinery and equipment has been acquired to develop ballistic
missiles.
Though the junta in Myanmar tried multiple ways of hiding their
activities into building nuclear weapons, the matter came into strict
monitoring of US administration, which is believed to have already
gathered substantial information on latest status of the nuclear
activities of Yangon. According to a number of cross-checked sources,
Myanmar has successfully built anti-ballistic missiles, which are
capable of hitting any object within the distance of 450 kilo meters.
The first test of the missile may take place either within
under-ground bunkers or within the sea bed of Bangladesh territory or
Myanmar-Bangladesh maritime boundary. Selecting sea bed is aimed at
sabotaging Bangladesh’s prospect of huge petroleum resources within
that area.
