misc. comments from blogs
Australia also chimes in: looks like they don't want their election fraud overturned..
Australia says Myanmar military must release elected leaders 'immediately'
200 civilians marched in support of the military takeover
Election took place in November.. the military has been saying since then.. that the election was rigged by their democracy party (leftist) and the military was ignored.. and their judges wouldn't listen to their claims of fraud.. so just on the last couple of hours.. the military has taken control
Trying to find out if dominion voting machines are used there..having trouble due to big tech only showing the leftist view points on this
TV station and the internet has gone black.
NAYPYITAW, Myanmar (AP) — Myanmar military television says the military has taken control of the country for one year.
An announcer on military-owned Myawaddy TV made the announcement Monday morning. The announcement follows days of concern about the threat of a military coup and comes as the country’s new Parliament session was to begin.
This is such a parallel to what the United States is going through..and of course it is the progressive party who is accused of cheating... the "Democracy League" or something.. here is a link to the head who has now been arrested by the military

Here is an article n this subject titled;
Aung San Suu Kyi calls for Myanmar protests in wake of coup
Country’s powerful army has previously threatened to ‘take action’ over alleged fraud in a November election
This sure has leftist twitter freaking out.. i feel like this is bigger than we realize right now at this moment. The way the leftists are acting.. plus one mentioned Myanmar (Burma) is so important to Obama.. getting this government in power over there...see..this leads somewhere..to something... and Biden threatening force.. something bigger going on here
Wasn’t Myanmar on the list of countries that used DOMINION Voting machines and same cheating software ?
Aung San Suu Kyi was a Soros-picked Globalist too...a "Nobel Peace Prize" winner
they did everything they could since November to get election fraud looked at. The election commission wouldn't look at it.. which is what we are going through in the US. The conservative party was the ones who got cheated out. The military is taking over for 1 year.. hopefully getting rid of the means to cheat..and having another election.. a free and fair one..
A little history: a few decades ago the Marxist military government cracked down on protests and killed over 3,000 protestors and put into prison thousands more for 20 years. Then, when this lady was released from prisoner she became president as a leftist.
The conservatives are saying there was proof of voter fraud in the millions. The military also saw this and asked for a judgment in the courts, but they refused to make a ruling.
As things stand now no one really knows who the good guys or the bad guys are... No one is wearing white hats. In the meantime the powerful rule and the little guy gets crushed.
With Biden being a leftist and this conflict appealing to a leftist sentiments this may be a perfect made to order conflict for Biden to gear up the military industrial complex for more profits.
Myanmar has a deep water port and the most abundant natural resources in all of SE Asia, including major hydrocarbon reserves.
You want to know who cares about them? I'll tell you who cares: The People's Republic of China, including their military
Myanmar in China’s Plans for Expanded Overseas Network of Military Facilities
China is planning to construct the Kyaukphyu Special Economic Zone (SEZ) deep seaport project, which will boost its presence in the Indian Ocean. The development of the SEZ is part of Beijing’s wider plan to expand its footprint in South Asia, which has seen it invest heavily in Indian Ocean ports through the BRI.
Granting China direct access to the Indian Ocean and allowing its oil imports to bypass the Strait of Malacca, the Kyaukphyu port is a crucial component of the China-Myanmar Economic Corridor (CMEC), which is a part of the BRI. It also serves Beijing’s goal of developing China’s landlocked Yunnan province. Located in northern Rakhine State, Kyaukphyu is a strategic hub for China, and already serves as the terminus for twin cross-border oil and gas pipelines between the two countries.

Now remember that the military Tatmadaw was once a communist dictatorship very closely aligned with China.
Things just got much easier for China in Myanmar today.
STATEMENT FROM US GOVERNMENT:
” The United States opposes any attempt to alter the outcome of recent elections or impede Myanmar’s democratic transition, and will take action against those responsible if these steps are not reversed”
Here is some more background about the Chicoms and the Burnese Tatmadaw.
Nearly two-thirds of the Myanmar army, navy, and air force personnel sent abroad for training between 1990 and 1999 received training in China.15 In return, the Tatmadaw offered China access to natural resources in Myanmar’s remote areas, especially Kachin State, and Myanmar’s generals profited from Chinese investments. China was interested in opening the border for trade and extracting natural resources to fuel its own economic development, particularly in southwestern Yunnan Province.
China’s relations with Myanmar also improved following their respective crackdowns on political reform movements in the late 1980s led by Aung San Syi Kir that resulted in the international isolation of both. China supplied Myanmar with military assistance that was no longer available from Western countries and pursued broad military cooperation with the military government.
Since the late 1980s, China has been a major supplier of military hardware to Myanmar, providing more than 90 percent of its military transport.16 China’s military sales also include anti-ship cruise missiles, targeting radar, naval guns, and corvettes Myanmar bought $1.4 billion in arms from China between 2000 and 2016, approximately $1 billion since 2011, when General Thein Sein became president. China also used its permanent seat in the United Nations Security Council to shield the Myanmar generals from international condemnation and sanctions in the 1990s through the 2000s.
A shift in China’s approach to Myanmar took place after 2011 as Myanmar began to transition from military rule toward an elected dual party civilian government and China found that it could no longer rely on its strong relationship with the military to protect its dominant position in the country.
Beijing has also made efforts to strengthen its military-to-military relationship with the Tatmadaw generals, continuing to enhance contacts and increase training and technical exchanges between China’s and Myanmar’s armed forces. In May 2017, the People’s Liberation Army Navy (PLAN) conducted its first joint exercises, including communications and search and rescue, with the Myanmar navy. Chinese navy ships visited Myanmar in what is seen as an important milestone in the projection of Chinese naval power into the Bay of Bengal and the Indian Ocean.

Today, the Tatmadaw re-established their socialist military dictatorship and it would come as no surprise is communist China was behind this and supports them.
(the plot thickens)
posting source and discussions:
now India is getting involved:
India has come out on the side of the democratically elected government. Little wonder because they last thing they want is a CCP controlled military dictatorship on their northeastern border.
On Monday morning, the military seized control of the country after it detained Suu Kyi, President U Win Myint and other senior officials of the NLD party.
Last week, IANS had reported that the coup appeared to be a likely outcome given China`s grip over the internal situation in the country. Myanmar`s socialist military junta, which ruled the country through the 90s and 2000s, has had the backing of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
