Myanmar military says it is taking control of the country : worldnewsFebruary 1, 2021
In 1962 Myanmar (then known as Burma) became a military dictatorship after a coup. This lasted till 2010 when after decades of non-violent protest against the regime, the current government was elected. For the past decade the country has been improving in areas such as human rights, economy, international relations. The military still tries to get elected and runs as a political party.
Last year the government won the election by a massive margin, and the military called foul and said the election was full of voter fraud but much like a certain American party, provided zero proof.
So the military decided to launch another coup, cause they lost and they’re using “The government failed to seriously consider our claims of voter fraud and they didn’t delay the election like we wanted (they used the virus as the reason)”
This is a military dictatorship wanting to get back into power and return to the bad old days.
However the government isn’t very innocent as they did some horrible things to Muslims etc. Its just a shitty group all around. Maybe the military has some legitimate claims about voter fraud. Fact remains this country is never stable for long, someones always overthrowing someone else >.>
