US press: China may be behind military coup in Myanmar

24

It is possible that Myanmar will become a place where the interests of Beijing and Washington clash. Indeed, for the United States, participation in resolving the situation in this country may be a good chance to restore its authority in the world, with which China is hardly ready to agree.


This is how Azim Ibrahim argues in an article published by the American magazine Foreign Policy. He believes that China may be behind the military coup in Myanmar.

The reason for the coup carried out by the military was the real or alleged falsification of the November elections in the country. The US press suspects Beijing may be involved in the coup. Ibrahim draws attention to the fact that the army started talking about the seizure of power after the meeting between the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Myanmar, Senior General Min Aung Hline and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the People's Republic of China, Wang I. The author suggests that the military decided on a coup, counting on the support of their actions from Beijing.

They hope that even if initially China did not sympathize with the rebellious generals of Myanmar, then after Washington supports the ousted civilian authorities, Beijing will have to act on the opposite side, that is, to provide assistance to the military. And for this, China has ample opportunities. For example, he, with the right to veto, is able to block the UN decision to condemn the coup. He can also expand economic cooperation with Myanmar, easing the effect of US sanctions if the US decides to impose them.

On the other hand, Beijing's support for the military would be illogical, since it had previously demonstrated its positive attitude towards the civilian government of Aung San Suu Kyi. This could mean that after the generals come to power, Myanmar will find itself in international isolation.

It is difficult to predict how China will behave in relation to the situation in Myanmar.

      I wonder how they haven’t been tied to Burma ... Usually, America is to blame for everything, but here China came from somewhere ...

      Although, if "Foreign Policy" said that China, then China.
      argues Azim Ibrahim in an article published by the American magazine Foreign Policy. He believes that behind the military coup in Myanmar can stand China.
      "Can stand" means "worth it." America traditionally no longer needs any proof. Arguments like "maybe NOT stand" are not accepted by America. It is clearly said - "CAN".

        I think they have already screwed it on.

        --- Ten days before the coup, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu visited Myanmar. He met with Min Aung Hline, who now, after the coup, led the country. The Russian Defense Ministry announced that it would supply Pantsir-S1 anti-aircraft missile and cannon systems, Orlan drones and radar stations to Myanmar.

            States and Indians in flight along the way.
            The military found more than 8 million false ballots.
            In a country with approximately 36 million voters.
            Purely state democracy.
            It is strange that the military did not like it. bully

          Well, that's the indisputable American "proof" .... goodMin Aung Hline, the Kremlin's agent, is now an established fact by the Americans. And the coup was organized by the "little green men" ...

          How the Anglo-Saxons love "proof"!
          Was somehow in the form of an excursionist at a meeting of our local "Salvation Army". Gathered all the members of the "troops" - about 30 people. Mostly aunts from 55 to 75. For two and a half hours they took turns going to the podium and presenting to the audience "proof of the existence of God"... Lost in translation? In Orthodoxy, this is called "God's providence" and is not a proof, because there is nothing to prove. Then they began to sing their hymns to the fun of soul on a synthesizer with boops. Then I could not stand it - I ran away and spent the rest of the day putting my brain in its place with cognac ...

          Is that what they, the Americans, are doing in their heads? Such a mess that you will not interfere ...

            Inspired about God -

            There is a lesson in "Communism".

            The teacher says to the children: - Children, Soviet scientists have proved that there is no God.

            Make a fig and point to the sky.

            All raised, only one Abramchik not.

            The teacher asks: - Abramchik, why didn't you show it?

            Abramchik: - If there is no God, then why show. And if there is, then why spoil the relationship ...

        I wonder how they haven’t been tied to Burma yet ... Usually in America we are to blame for everything, but here China came from somewhere ..

        I agree - it is somehow humiliating to nudge your elbows with China for the right to stage coups .. Moreover, we all know that correct, truly democratic pronunciamentos all over the world can only be produced by a shining city on a hill and a citadel of democracy ..

      And he is right, the communists will come to power in all countries of the world. Whether the regimes will be socialist like those in Sweden / Norway. The path of the underdeveloped capitalist countries of the world is only to socialism. Including Russia.

        There is no socialism in Scandinavia !! For it - whatever one may say, but implies public ownership of the means of production. That there is no trace of it .. It's just that the bourgeoisie are actively sharing with the plebeians .. For obvious reason - the countries of the north, there are few workers, inevitably they had to unfasten. But now - this is already gradually becoming a thing of the past .. Why pay a lot - when production is taken out to warm countries and Papuans are being imported en masse?

    It is possible that Myanmar will become a clash of interests between Beijing and Washington

    99% of US senators will not be able to name the location of Myanmar, and half of them will even think that we are talking about some new name for Cola or a hamburger

      They cannot name, but nevertheless, these 99,99% are very upset because believe that the monopoly on coups belongs exclusively to the United States yes

    Burma is a tasty morsel for China. Exit to the Indian Ocean (the Bay of Bengal bypassing all the straits. True, the mountains are high on the border (but for the Chinese to tear down one other mountain is a matter of time laughing )

    Well, if you count how many coups and color revolutions have been done by the hands of the United States over the past at least 20 years, then you begin to understand who you first need to get rid of.

    It looks like the active practice of amers of Tsvetrev, politicians of all countries will soon shy away from all sorts of elections like hell with incense, in order to prevent Tsvetrev. There are no elections, there is no ground for collecting wrestlers in marketable quantities.

    It is difficult to predict how China will behave in relation to the situation in Myanmar.
    fool It will unequivocally support the authorities and offer loans for laying infrastructure in their own interests.
    Indeed, for the United States, participation in resolving the situation in this country can be a good chance to restoration of authority in the world,
    Rather, getting Vietnam-2 or Korea-2 to choose from ... repeat

    He believes that China may be behind the military coup in Myanmar.

    It may or may not be standing. Maybe China, or maybe not China ... very informative reasoning, isn't it?
    In general, the accusation of the authorities in falsification of the elections is a purely State Department trick, which also seems to be hinting.

      Exactly like Cam Ranh used to be. Something in return would definitely not hurt.
