The United Nations says about 100,000 people in Myanmar’s Kayah State have fled because of deteriorating security and the humanitarian situation in the country, which has now been under military control for more than four months. The global body says civilians living in the southern Myanmar border state, adjacent to Thailand, have been targeted by indiscriminate attacks by security forces, which has led to severe displacement.

  1. Myanmar was one of the richest countries of South Asia before after it’s independence and before decades of military coup and dictatorship.

    1. I have a close college friend from there who was “exiled” in the mid-1960’s. He may never be able to go “home” again with the military in control.

    2. Indeed. Myanmar also have a rich reserve for precious metals which could be exploited and will bring in more cash for the military to continue its propaganda and eventually become a problem for Asia.

    3. If China pulls back from the coup leaders, I think responsible military people would move to restore civilian rule – I hope.

    4. Ned, China supported Ann Sang Sui ki and through the CMEC they had signed more than 50 deals, China is also supporting the military coup. But in recent months they have publicly confirmed to mediate between the military and political establishment of the country.

      You must know better but I think the political establishment and the military leaders needs to sit down and settle this matter among themselves without any foreign mediation.

      Btw what is the stand of chancellor on this matter?

    5. Have heard nothing from her in the news. The coup leaders have gone too far in killing people – some key parts of military have to act, I believe, to save their nation. The coup leaders have become warlords – we shall see.
