In the first visit to Myanmar by a British foreign minister in 56 years -- since the British were expelled from the nation, then called Burma after its declaration of independence in 1956 -- William Hague took it upon himself to present "democracy icon" Aung San Suu Kyi with the "Chatham House Prize."

Nothing quite says "democracy promotion" like a prize from an organization consisting of Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, BP, Exxon, Chevron, BAE, Boeing, Lockheed, and many more. This is just the latest in a long line of self-aggrandizing stunts the global elite pull to lend themselves otherwise non-existent legitimacy.
The "Chatham House Prize" is given annually to a "statesperson who is deemed by Chatham House members to have made the most significant contribution to the improvement of international relations in the previous year." The decision process is conducted by research teams and the Chatham House's presidents who are currently John Major, Patricia Scotland, and none other than Paddy Ashdown, who just finished defiling the spirit of innovation and pragmatism at the TED Talks with his sales pitch for global governance run by the corporate-financier elite.
The prize is given to those "deemed by Chatham House members" to have made contributions to the improvement of "international relations." The Chatham House membership is described as "individuals, companies and organizations who share a deep interest in international affairs, independent thinking and debate." Their membership includes, "academics, diplomats, the media, NGOs, politicians, policy-makers, researchers and business people."
Of course, an actual look at Chatham House's membership reveals what is essential a fraudulent convergence of corporate-financier elitist interests, government, so-called "NGOs," and media. Their "corporate & NGO membership" includes Chevron, ExxonMobil, Shell, British Petroleum, Amsterdam & Peroff, Bloomsberg, BBC, Coca-Cola, Dutsche Bank, BAE Systems, the Economist, GlaxoSmithKline, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Morgan Stanley, Total, Texco, Reuters, Boeing, Standard Chartered Bank, Thales, Lockheed Martin, World Vision, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and Barclays Capital.
When we look at the fraudulent concert with which these converging interests operated in the persecution of war against Libya and the subsequent genocide, destruction, and installation of a Petroleum Institute representative as "prime minister" of the nation as it began handing out the above-mentioned big-oil interests exclusive contracts, it is quite clear the potential conflicts of interest present at the Chatham House have bred atrocious improprieties. That it would later turn out that the claims of "humanitarian intervention" were based on admitted lies by "human rights activists" in Libya who were in fact working directly for/with the opposition, illustrates the absolute lack of legitimacy with which these global elite operate with.
The Chatham House is one of many corporate-financier round tables that represent the collective interests of the global corporate-financier elite. Their policy papers and the agendas they support directly represent their collective corporate-financier interests. The "Chatham House Prize" therefore is in no shape, form, or manner, a testament to a recipient's service to the people, but rather their service to the powers that be -- globally.
Aung San Suu Kyi has just been granted the seal of global corporate-fascist approval, accepting the prize from Hague who has played an instrumental role in the destruction and genocide brought upon Libya, and a man who is busy attempting a repeat performance in Syria and Iran.
As described in depth in "Burmese "Pro-Democracy" Movement a Creation of Wall Street & London," Aung San Suu Kyi's entire political movement, the NGOs supporting her both inside Myanmar and abroad, as well as domestic and foreign media fronts that ceaselessly promote her and her agenda, are entirely funded by the US and British governments. A 2006 36-page document out of the "Burma Campaign UK" explicitly details the enormous amount of money and resources both the US government and its corporate-funded foundations have poured into Suu Kyi's image and her "movement."
The goal of course is to remove anti-Western, pro-nationalist cliques within the Myanmar government and replace them with compliant stooges like Aung San Suu Kyi. It is then ironic that 56 years after the British were expelled from Myanmar, they are now back along with the likes of George Soros, US-stooge Yingluck Shinawatra, and US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, bestowing accolades, praise, and support upon Aung San Suu Kyi, a proxy holding enormous potential to usher in a new age of neo-colonialism managed by Wall Street and London -- all part of the so-called American "Pacific Century" aiming at encircling and containing the rise of China.
The age of British imperialism never truly ended, its global spanning megalomania never went extinct -- rather it has evolved into a system of global corporate-financier fascism.
