Misconceptions about the Myanmar Coup

It has been more than one month since the Myanmar military detained State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi. When that happened, Min Aung Hlaing took the position as the de-facto leader of the country as chief of the Junta.

Many countries have criticized the situation, but have plans to intervene to help the Myanmar people. However, the world is currently overlooking one important aspect. That is to say, the coup d'etat was heavily supported by the efforts of the Chinese Communist Party.

Western democracies initially saw Aung San Suu Kyi as a reformer and a force for democracy in Myanmar. However, as a result of the continued persecution of the Rohingya, her stardom waned and international criticism mounted. Her treatment was not entirely undeserved, the Rohingya Muslims really suffered a lot. However, this doesn't excuse China, which intervened in a foreign nation to overthrow their leader.

It was an act of calculated strategic value, to strengthen China's claims of maritime hegemony. Yet it didn't go unnoticed. The Myanmar people recently began attacking Chinese businesses and factories. Myanmar national Aye Myat Kyaw said, "If you want to do business peacefully in Myanmar, respect Myanmar people, stop supporting terrorist army and join Myanmar people."

This fact must be known: China supported the coup d'etat which was conducted by the Myanmar military. The Junta are now illegally holding Aung San Suu Kyi under house arrest. China aims to use this to their advantage, and aims to eventually take control over Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, along the lines of the Domino Theory in the Cold War.

Victory of Light Media will always stand on the side of Democracy. If the nations of the world would continue this trend, replacing democracy with military dictatorship, this planet would become Hell. There can be no nobility or dignity in a world where physical power is the principle of dominance. In addition, leaders that take power by force have no legitimacy on the world scene.

If China wishes to continue striving towards geo-political domination, the world will react negatively and build up reinforcements. The Warriors of Light will always fight for freedom and democracy as long as they exist. We aim to continue creating such Warriors through this platform.

The 7 May Coup: Myanmar’s military has held power in varying degrees since taking over from an elected government in 1962 after which, despite various failed reforms culminating in a military junta from which Aung San Suu Kyi was released to lead the democratic opposition, it has never relinquished control.
