This rationale clearly pointed out the typical Mahar Myanmar mentality because they considered themselves to be the existing Imperial Colonial army of Burma little realising that it was the Tatmadaw that attacked the Kokang group first way back in 1989 when the cease-fire by the military government at that time name SLORC (State Law and order Restoration Council) spearheaded by Khin Nyunt, with the Kokang-led MNDA, which had recently split from the Communist Party of Burma, Kokang prospered under the supervision of Peng Jiasheng, the able leader of MNDA, construction of wide new boulevards and high-rise buildings-mostly hotels and entertainment complexes is underway everywhere.
It's not forgotten that China during the 1960s and 1970s gave massive support to the insurgent Communist Party of Burma.
By April 1948, following a revolt by the Communist Party of Burma in March, British press reports were reflecting an increasing disquiet among British government departments relating to growing communist activities throughout Southeast Asia.
The revolts of the Myanmar Red Flag Communist Party in 1947, the Myanmar Communist Party of Burma in March 1948, the Myanmar People's Volunteer Organization in June 1948, and the mutinies of the Myanmar 1st Burma Rifles stationed at Thayetmyo and the Myanmar 3rd Rifles stationed at Mingladon, Rangoon (August 15, 1948), prompted U Nu to approach the Karen leaders to ask them to help the Government by taking up the security of Rangoon to save it from peril.

A new Tatmadaw regime SLORC, in 1989 took advantage of a serious mutiny within the Communist Party of Burma (CPB) by entering into ceasefire agreements with drug warlords who splintered off from the CPB.
It is, therefore, to be regretted that the author did not elaborate on several important events and developments, such as the split within the ranks of the Communist Party of Burma in 1967, or the armed conflict between the Karen National Liberation Army (KNLA) and ex-Premier U Nu's followers, etc.
