Myanmar Military Coup
« on: January 31, 2021, 11:08:25 PM »
Myanmar's military has handed power of the country to the commander-in-chief of the armed forces, following the arrests of the country's civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior leaders in early morning raids Monday.

In an address on military-owned television, Myanmar's military said that it had detained key political leaders in response to election fraud and had declared a state of emergency, Reuters reported.

Power has been handed to army chief Min Aung Hlaing, according to Reuters.

He should have them impeached. It’s in vogue nowadays to impeach non-heads-of-state.

The United States will keep up “firm action” against Myanmar authorities violently cracking down on opponents of a military coup, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Sunday, after two protesters were shot dead over the weekend. (Reuters)

It’s scary to watch. We take so much for granted living in a (relatively) free country.

FTFY

There’s enough big brother and corruption in the US, which is why I’m comfortable with my parenthetical  “relatively” qualifier.

I guess the Y in FTFY is that you fixed that for YOURSELF :P

Security forces in Myanmar on Saturday again met protests against last month’s military takeover with lethal force, killing at least seven people by shooting live ammunition at demonstrators.

Four deaths were reported in Mandalay, the country’s second-biggest city, two in Pyay, a town in south-central Myanmar, and one in Twante, a suburb of Yangon, Myanmar’s largest city. Details of all seven deaths were posted on multiple social media accounts, some accompanied by photos of the victims.
