Myanmar Crisis Explained (and vid)

https://landdestroyer.blogspot.com/2021/02/myanmar-crisis-explained.html

"Myanmar's military has seized power, detained Aung San Siuu Kyi and has begun rounding up members of her National League for Democracy, political party.

I explain how the US has spent decades building ASSK's political network and installing her into power and how US-backed groups - including those in Thailand - are already mobilizing to undermine not only Myanmar's political stability - but also that of the entire region. For a much more in depth explanation, please see the video..."

Unlike this thread that uses the legal name of Myanmar the Supreme Ruler of the Planet Earth calls it Burma so I expect that others on this board will be following suit soon.

Ari  Ben-Menashe

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ari_Ben-Menasche

"Documents obtained in 2002 by Canadian journalists under Canada's freedom of information legislation show that Ben Menashe had a relationship with the Canadian government. Over 400 pages showing Ben-Menashe was regularly debriefed by Canadian intelligence officers, plumbed about what he knew of the inner workings of the governments he was involved with."

And very likely will be again. Far more to this than meets the eye and don't be surprised if both Canada and Israel turn out to be 'interested parties' in this project. Perhaps he should talk to Bob Rae our man at the UN, if he hasn't already. He's very interested in Myanmar too.

As Myanmar’s military celebrated the annual Armed Forces Day holiday with a parade Saturday in the country’s capital, soldiers and police elsewhere reportedly killed dozens of people as they suppressed protests in the deadliest bloodletting since last month’s coup.

The online news site Myanmar Now reported late Saturday that the death toll had reached 114. A count issued by an independent researcher in Yangon who has been compiling near-real time death tolls put the total at 107, spread over more than two dozen cities and towns.

Perhaps the well-meaning know-all Western Human Rights do-gooders are encouraging the youth of Myanmar to take to the streets (Gene Sharp style) and get killed.  Its a very complex situation and a complex country, former British colony.  If we're for non-violence, let them solve their problems. White supremacy can mean that Western/Enlightened activists are essential to solve the problems of the Brown countries.  First do no harm.

Myanmar: Hidden Opposition Violence

https://landdestroyer.blogspot.com/2021/03/myanmar-hidden-opposition-vio...

"From Libya to Syria to Yemen and Ukraine - violence was part of US-based political subversion from the beginning. This is no different in the Southeast state of Myanmar where US-backed protesters are in the streets fighting with Myanmar's police and military. If more voices are not raised in regards to Myanmar, demanding both sides of the story be told - the nation risks falling victim to the same chaos that consumed nations targeted by the US..."
