Totalitarianism - Myanmar Coup (General)

"Myanmar's military has seized power after detaining civilian leader Aung San Suu Kyi and other senior members of her governing party.

The coup follows a landslide win by Ms Suu Kyi's party in an election which the army claims was marred by fraud."

Below is the Global Times's take:

"Experts said the military's actions can be seen as an adjustment to the country's dysfunctional power structure. China has maintained good relations with both the current government and the military, and it hopes that the two sides can reach a compromise through negotiations to maintain peace and stability. They also noted the country should be wary of possible external interference."

Another one back in the fold.

This is why the UN is a joke.

"China has blocked a UN Security Council statement condemning the military coup in Myanmar."

Myanmar expert Elliott Prasse-Freeman, of the National University of Singapore, told the BBC.

"Through this foreign policy equivalent of gaslighting, China seems to be signalling its tacit support, if not emphatic endorsement, for the generals' actions. China seems to be proceeding as if this is Myanmar's 'internal issue' in which what we are observing is a 'cabinet reshuffle,' as China's state media put it."

Why can't we listen to a few more political experts like the above guy - instead of on-the-take-from-China science experts all the time?
