    COX’SBAZAR: Myanmar massed its soldiers along the Tumbru and Ghundum border opposite Naikkongchhari upazila in Bangladesh, just as when the verdict of an international arbitration over the maritime boundary with the neighbouring country was going to be delivered.

    Tensions ran high in the Bangladesh-Myanmar border areas after the news of army deployment by Myanmar spread.

    Myanmar authorities suddenly began to build up troop deployment near zero line of the Bangladesh-Myanmar border since Tuesday morning.

    Witnesses and inhabitants of Naikkongchhori upazila in Bandarban hill district said Myanmar increased the number of their soldiers Wednesday.

    They put the number at over two thousand.

    Union Parishad Chairman Dipak Barua of Ghundum Union under Naikkongchhori upazila told journalists that Myanmar amassed soldiers opposite his union.

    “But the reason behind the deployment of army is yet to be known,” he said.

    Border Guard Bangladesh (BGB) Commanding Officer of 17 Border Guard Battalion in Cox’sbazar Lt Col Mohammad Khalequzzaman acknowledged the fact of army deployment by Myanmar to this correspondent on Wednesday evening.

    Myanmar has already brought together nearly five battalions of soldiers in Unciprang, Dhekibonia and Mehdai areas near Bangladesh border, he said.

    Khalequzzaman said, “The matter was already brought to the notice of the Director- General of BGB Tuesday.”

    After that, the BGB ordered its all officers and jawans to stay alert at Tumbru and Ghundum borders.

    Witnesses said that the deployment of the Myanmar army opposite the Bangladesh border appears to be a war preparation.

    We just need the green signal from the US, China and India (all having stakes in Myanmar) to blow them back to the stone age. Their little malnourished troops may be good in jungle warfare, but not if we set the jungles on fire. :lol:

    Myanmar has a very strong army. Underestimating them is a dangerous mistake. We cannot afford to be complacent. An attack will unite the country and that will be a huge factor in our favour.

    The same strategy can be used against our army and they have a well equipped air-force.

    1 - They can't use Mig-29s to extinguish forest fires.

    2 - Our army can make prior preparations to tackle large scale forest fires in Bandarban.

    It's a good strategy to start with, something they won't anticipate.

    How come such a comment my friend! I thought bangladesh and china are allies.

    What gives the idea to bangladeshis that Myanmar military is weaker than bangladesh's?

    We have to help Bangladesh overcome the ruthless military dictators in Myanmar.

    The generals are out of control. Who do they think they are? First they kill a Chinese farmer on the border, now they provoke Bangladesh. They must be taught a lesson.

    naaaaaah, we'll live in peace and china will continue to be bangladesh's friend

    I know. But Myanmar is on its way to democracy. Aung Sung Suki is there leader. If their generals are moved, we have a big market in myanmar.
