    Reading the OP, it sounds like an amazing experience.

    Yes! Please do tell us more about Burma...Highlights, lowlights, recommendations on what to do and what to eat etc etc.

    I love Southeast Asia...Have spent a bit of time in northwest Thailand pretty much right on the Burmese border but never been to Burma itself..Would like to go soon.

    Working on it. :)

    So why Burma?

    Burma has a health ranking of about 189/194 in the world.
    The government has spent since 1962 trying to ethnically cleanse anyone that isn't ethnic Burmese. This gets into some pretty serious stuff....rape as a weapon, child soldiers, just murdering people for the hell of it in hopes of controlling the population and making like hard enough to make them leave. Even modest democratic reforms have not made big changes.

    So where did I go?


    Specifically, I went to work in the Karen State

    Karen conflict - Wikipedia

    This area has had some relative peace in the last few years but its fragile. And here the headlines 2 weeks before I went:

    @Khabib Fears Conor@Khabib Fears Conor this is why you didn't get gayboy'd...

    I was somewhere in that green area:

    So I can't really explain what I was doing over there without explaining Free Burma Rangers ( Free Burma Rangers - Free the Oppressed ). And I can't do that without explaining David Eubank.

    David Eubank was raised in Thailand, came back to the USA, became a TEXAS Aggie, and then completed a career in the Special Forces. He left the military, went to seminary, and just around that time an ethnic group in Burma that is getting slaughtered sees his green beret photo on the wall over in Asia. Eubank's father was a missionary and the group asked, "Can he help us?!!"

    So Eubank hear's this and decides to go. He spends several years running one man aid missions into Burma. Burmese government gets wind and tries to hunt him down. In the meantime, Burmese government is displacing thousands and Eubank runs into a Burmese guy names Eliya whose own family was missing. Eliya detours to help Eubank and show him hide sites to help people etc.
    Eubank starts to train Eliya to help people and bam...Free Burma Rangers is born.

    So now what?
    The group has for 20 years run aid missions into Burma...and recently Sudan and Iraq. They train up locals for orienteering, perform field medicine, and "deploy" back to their villages to help people the next time the Burmese military comes. This isn't a military force, but an evade and hide force...along with recon. The groups videos were instrumental in evidence for US Sanctions on Burma and ethnic group peace that brought about the small democratic changes that have happened in the last half decade.

    Here is Eubank last year

    View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Nscl6AHNmcE

    @conor mcgregor nut hugger@conor mcgregor nut hugger won't like that he likes God in this video.

    I saw this video and later heard randomly about the organization from another doctor that had gone to Burma. Never put the two together. But it illustrates the guy and beyond that he organizations willingness to go into hot beds others won't go to.

    Interesting in Iraq, they brought these 20 year experienced Burmese medics to help and teach the Iraqis. And when I was in Burma, I saw Iraqis now coming back to aide and help the Burmese...displaced people helping each other. You can't get more empathy than that.


    I'm on call so I'll be a little scattered putting more info in here ya'll.

    The organization is just getting spun up on that side. They didn't need me there. I would have gone there if it was requested. They only go where they are invited. In my next posts you'll see why I was in Karen...

    Going in is Classified. While its cooling off, there was the flare up and can be anytime. The organization arranges those details and for security I won't post much. Just know it is extensive and culminates in a solid 8-10 hour hike through the jungle roads/mountain most of the time.

    This is obviously his pimp writing this,

    @Splinty@Splinty is being held in a Burnese opium den being peddled as a high priced American fun boy. Burmese soldiers taking turns dancing his limp body around the room, Splinty dazed and drooling, wearing a cheap blonde wig, red lipstick smeared across his lips.

    Listen to me you son of a bitch let him go!

    (Splinty if you can read this we’re coming for you buddy.)
