The article exposes the workings of Burma's new narco-dictatorship, which has incorporated the booming drug trade into the permanent economy of the country. The relationship between some of the world's biggest kingpins and the Burmese dictatorship - and the use of the drug trade by the rulers to stay in power - is documented. The article brings to light the terrible implications of the junta's marriage to the drug trade for the Burmese people, the American public and the world at large. (Dec. 16, 1996)
