The Real Coup Happening Right Now That No One Is Talking About – Hundreds Dead
Hundreds of people have been killed and I’ve not seen any American press on the coup that is currently taking place.
The country of Myanmar (Burma) has recently been taken over by the military-backed opposition party.
Notice that all of these protesters are unarmed citizens, yet they are being slaughtered. And why? Because they are against the coup.
So what is happening and why is it happening?
Myanmar has been the center of angst for a long time now. The Myanmar military seized control of the country and has declared a year long state of emergency. This seizure comes following an election which elected Aung San Suu Kyi who won by a landslide.
Since this time, she was arrested and the opposition party demanded a new election claiming there was fraud. There hasn’t been any evidence of any fraud, but the military has backed the opposition part and therefore they have seized control and have been killing dissidents.
They have cut off internet, they enter homes and loot them, they are even killing children. No one is safe in Myanmar right now.
This is what our future could look like after Democrats seize the guns of tens of millions of Americans. Every time that gun control was ever initiated, what was the reason? It was for “safety”. What was the result? Mass deaths.
Military commander-in-chief Min Aung Hlaing has taken power.
He has long wielded significant political influence, successfully maintaining the power of the Tatmadaw – Myanmar’s military – even as the country moved towards democracy.
He has received international condemnation and sanctions for his alleged role in the military’s attacks on ethnic minorities.
In his first public comments after the coup, Gen Hlaing sought to justify the takeover. He said the military was on the side of the people and would form a “true and disciplined democracy”.
The military says it will hold a “free and fair” election once the state of emergency is over.
There is one more video that is worth seeing, but I have to warn you it is graphic. I won’t post it here, but if you go to YouTube and search for “myanmar day of shame”, find the video from Al Jazeera and you’ll see what I mean.
