The Global Response to the Military Thugs of Myanmar needs to be a Military Answer

Myanmar is on the brink of becoming a failed state and the Myanmar military is pointing their weapons to anti-coup protesters with over 500 Burmese that have been killed.

The military thugs that overthrow the democratic elected government are now accusing Aung San Suu Kyi of taking bribes in addition to importing walkie talkies and violating social distancing during the Covid-19 pandemic and the JUNTA is making it up as they go.

Those military thugs lost most of their seats in last November’s Generation Election in which Aung San Suu Kyi NLD Party won 85% of the popular votes.

Since the coup on February 1, those thugs shut down television stations and the internet to have a clear way of butchering their own people and the International community does nothing.

Myanmar’s military chief throwed a lavish dinner party March 27 on Armed Forces Day for his friends from Thailand, China, Russia, Vietnam, Laos, India and to show his cruelty over 120 Burmese were killed by the thugs.

A day later 12 defense chiefs from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the EU jointly condemned the killings of unarmed people’s but surely we must ask how on earth are those 12 countries with such a large military capabilities not being able to stop the killing in Myanmar by retaliating actions to fix the situation.

The death in Myanmar is not going away until their is an international intervention but since the Chinese and Russian’s are blocking the United Nation Security Council (UNSC) it need’s to be a Coalition of the Willing.

If the free world is not prepared to defend democracies in Myanmar we might have to wonder what the free world stands for, besides talking to ASEAN leaders which is a waste of time.

As long ASEAN accepts military coups nothing will change in Southeast Asia and Myanmar’s generals know that they can get away with it when they look at their neighbor Thailand which is headed by another military thug General Prayut Chan-o-cha.

As for consumers of the free world, the only language that ASEAN needs to hear is a full travel boycott to all ASEAN countries which includes Brunei, Cambodia, Laos, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Thailand, Singapore.
