Military Mayhem: On-The-Scene Reports from Myanmar

Despite the government crackdown on outside communication, Al-Jazeera's un-named correspondent in Myanmar continues to get news out.

He wore a Manchester United football shirt and had only two front teeth. He was 72 years of age and said his name was Ny and a former teacher.

"Government bad," he told me "people good".

"Soldiers?" I asked him, "Very bad" he replied and smiled - the kind of gentle smile that people in Myanmar smile.

But these are not 'people', not the ones who demonstrate.

According to state media they are agitators bent on destroying the country's stability and infrastructure.
