The military carried out a coup in Myanmar

65

Today the military staged a coup d'état in Myanmar. They arrested the country's president, Vin Mying, state adviser Aung San Suu Kyi, who is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate, and other government officials.


The Myanmar National Defense Army TV channel has declared a state of emergency for one year. According to the Chinese news agency Xinhua, the decision was made by the presidential administration and signed by the country's vice president, Mying Shwe, who is now acting head of state. The statement also says that power in the country will be transferred to the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, Min Aung Hlain.

As a reason for the seizure of power, the military cited fraud in the last November elections, which they described as "fraud."

White House press secretary Jen Psaki has already expressed concern about the events in the country.

The United States is concerned about reports that the Myanmar military has taken steps to undermine the country's democratic transition, including the arrest of State Councilor Aung San Suu Kyi and other civilian officials.

the statement said.

Joe Biden's administration said the US will continue to support Myanmar's "democratic institutions" and demand that the military release officials. Otherwise, Washington threatens to take appropriate measures.


The military ruled Myanmar for a long time, from 1988 to 2011, but then the situation changed. And already in 2015, the opposition People's League for Democracy, led by Nobel laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, won the elections.

      Well, Myanmar seems to be on friendly terms with Russia.
      There was a Military Acceptance program that showed the army and navy of Myanmar.
      It was sounded very friendly on both sides.

          Power is a projection of power.
          The rest is husk.
          Democratic elections are profanity.

          An example of profanity is Biden's election in the United States.

          The people choose to whom they will obey.
          The slave is subject to force.
          It always has been.
          And the communists are some of the most bloodthirsty rulers.
          There has never been such a number of deaths of those who disagree with communism in Russia.
          The communists built their power in the gulf of Russia with blood.
          Ghouls.

          The military betrayed the king, and then the communists drowned everyone who tried to open their mouths in blood.


          So, these military men in Myanmar simply returned what the balabols tried to take from them.

          The friendship there is rather peculiar. With one hand, China is trading arms with the official leadership of Myanmar. And the other supports the Han insurgents operating in Myanmar in the areas bordering China.

          For example, in Myanmar, the military already controls almost everything and the military coup is far from the first there.
          Why write about US intervention everywhere?
          If you haven't figured it out yet, the truth is simple. USA has business before everything, what happens in the world. In this case, the case concerns "state councilor Aung San Suu Kyi, who is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate," for which the states are drowning. Moreover, our time, the "Nobel Peace Prize", is already a kind of rubbish mark, especially if America supports the laureates. So, if the State Department is screaming heart-rendingly about "violation of democracy", then I am fully confident that the military in Myanmar (I just want to call it Burma from old memory) did everything right.

        And Vin Myin himself forgot what he was doing during the "revolution of 8888" - an exact copy, according to the same training manuals as the "student unrest" in Paris twenty years earlier? There De Gaulle was thrown off (then they themselves regretted it), in Burma it did not work out - America had to wait until 2015 ... And now everything returned again in 1988.

        If America "demands", "intercedes" and threatens, it means that he, Vin Mying, finally got everyone in that Burma with his "progressive democratic development" - there are a bunch of examples, just not everywhere the military throws down the American protégé and comes to power. America needs another satellite, and "one does not want" American goodies and cookies.

    Psaki is back in business. The originally stupid and stupid comments in response to questions pale in comparison to her proofreading of a piece of paper with State Department statements. But this piece of paper, apparently, was also drawn up by a senior assistant to a junior trainee in the statistics department of the State Department. The decline in the level of competence and experience in US diplomacy continues from year to year. But they even get to the point that if, for example, on the island of Navarino (the southernmost island on earth with the Chilean settlement of Puerto Toro) in 34 people, a raccoon eats a seal, then Paski and the State Department will care ...

    Is this a barrier to arrest in a military coup? Moreover, the Nobel Peace Prize discredited itself long ago, because is given solely from the political environment dictated by the Americans. And since the Americans were so worried and voiced so far through Psaki, then it becomes clear whose creature it was.

    Burmese military and Buddhist (!) Monks are a bunch of sophisticated sadists, direct successors of the deeds of the fascists and fascists in fact. One of their chief in orange robes calls on Facebook for the murder and expulsion of the Rohingya, calling them aliens from Bangladesh, although they have lived there for centuries. If there is confusion and chaos in the country, then in order to distract the uneducated masses from all manifestations of discontent, they invent all sorts of fables about innocent people and carry out genocide, hack people to death, burn them alive and torture babies to death with stun guns, systematic unpunished killings of peaceful and defenseless people have become the hallmark of this militarist trash, whose generals look like caricature characters from sets of some orders and medals on their uniforms (most likely, they received them for ethnic cleansing in Rakhine and Kachin). And this rubbish, which received the Nobel Prize, fully supports this genocide. Of the 300 million Rohingya, more than 700 thousand were tortured and killed in a sophisticated way, more than 4 thousand became refugees, and the rest live in unbearable conditions. And everyone still continues to believe the false propaganda about "peacefulness" of Hindus and Buddhists. They are always strong in a crowd to attack and kill those who cannot fight back. Who watched Rimbaud-XNUMX, then I must say that this is the only film from the series, more or less truthfully showing the essence of these non-humans in forms.

    Apparently, even the military was tired of the unhealthy aggressiveness of "State Councilor Aung San Suu Kyi, who is a Nobel Peace Prize laureate." Had Hitler been alive, he would have already become a multiple winner of this aggressive madmen prize.

    control for a year before the next elections due to electoral fraud is not a seizure of power, but a normal democratic measure, a step away from which the United States itself was quite recently.
    More recently, we saw a positive example of such a procedure in Egypt.
    Military control in Libya also ended relatively well until the US intervened.
    It was a highly developed social state.
    So I would not be in a hurry to support "democracy". Let me just remind you that democracy is not the rule of the people, but the rule of the demos, i.e. community of the elite (slave owners) and in itself is exactly the same military junta, only the sign is different.
