A lot of fight fans don’t get very involved with international politics. Hopefully featuring the Kung Fu of the Shan people will help call attention to the genocide in Burma. Inside the war zone of Burma, under protection of the Shan State rebel army, host Antonio Graceffo is one of the first foreigners ever to experience Lai Tai or Shan Kung Fu. The Shan are one of Burma’s many ethnic minorities being subjected to genocide at the hands of heir own government. Meet young Master Kawn Wan, whose parents were murdered by the SPDC Burmese government army. Now, he lives on the Shan State Army base, teaching Lai Tai Kung Fu to the war orphans in the hopes of preserving the Shan culture. One of the Shan army lieutenants ominously told Antonio, “If the world doesn’t come to help us soon, your video will be the last record of our people.”

Foreign Policy Journal provides essential space for honest debate on today’s critical issues.
In a world colonized by a media created desert of arid smoke and mirrors, it’s satisfyingly gratifying that the Foreign Policy Journal provides a small oasis of factual reasoning. Whatever the reasons for its existence, I for one am grateful for the enlightenment offered.
Yes, it’s great that FPJ has so ably taken on this formidable responsibility, which is helping to reinforce a stronger position of those who dare challenge the prevailing narratives of war and hegemony, predicated on misinformation, lies and deceit. But it’s also not enough to recognize the contribution of FPJ and not do anything to guarantee, but insist on its survival. We all must support this important media platform, and help sustain it in anyway we can.
Foreign Policy Journal has been an informed source in English on a number of topics in Asian politics and economics with international implications. It is a valuable and irreplaceable asset.
I believe that the Foreign Policy Journal, unlike the ‘fawning corporate media’ (Ray McGovern’s phrase), provides a bias-free, propaganda-free source of relevant information on international affairs.
In this age of ‘money madness’, there are some people who are priceless and hence the harbingers of truth and justice. FPJ is one such outstanding effort which needs as much support of the right minded people, from every corner of the world, as they can provide. I wish this effort gets widespread and covers the whole world sooner than later….
Your esteemed journal is of immense help in getting unbiased facts and dispassionate analysis which will help a researcher to develop proper perspective in international politics
FPJ has always been one of the best scientific and analytical sources of information for us.
