In real, Myanmar's military is a political organization




 Myanmar is a country of military coups and military rule. In the post-independence period, it was under direct military rule for 50 years after the coup of 1962. There is virtually still. 

In 2008, the military was constitutionally made a partner in running the country. The army has 25 per cent of the seats in parliament. 

Also, the Minister of Defense, Home Affairs and Border Affairs was appointed by the Army. 

As a result, the army was somehow in power. Power was shared for a certain period. Now the power has taken over again by the military. 

So there is nothing new to be disappointed that democracy is being undermined by the military's takeover of power in Myanmar. 

There was no democracy before, not yet. So there is no chance of being defeated again.

As a democracy, Myanmar was lagging. Their military is based on the principles of military rule of the sixties or seventies of the last century. Military coups around the world have changed dramatically in the last three decades.




 Now, in the dark of night, the people of the military do not overthrow the head of government by killing him. Now the civil-military coup d'etat happened. It's called the Civil-Military Coup.

 There is no country in the world where there is no discontent or resentment. Capitalizing on this discontent, the military uses the civilians as a shield by implementing coup plans.

In the beginning, the agitated citizens were taken down to the streets. Public participation in the protests continues to grow. At one stage, the foreign powers started coming openly. Criticizes the government or withdraws support. 

Then the military appeared on the stage. Despite the reluctance to protect the country and the nation, the patriotic military took over the responsibility. 

This love is so sweet that they do not want to give up his responsibility towards the country. This is the new image of the civil-military coup in recent times. 

But Myanmar's military did not make any pretence on Monday morning. It has directly seized power.

Although the Union Solidarity and Development, Party won the 2010 elections, the military-controlled everything from behind the scenes. 

In 2015, Aung San Suu Kyi's party won the National League for Democracy, but the country remained under military control.

 Although the military brutally tortured the Rohingya out of Rakhine at the time, Suu Kyi could not resist as a democratic leader. Rather, he is in some cases supporting the military. 

Suu Kyi's party did worse than expected from opinion polls, which saw them at gaining about a third of the support. Myanmar's military is back in power after a brief hiatus.

Myanmar's politics is permanently dominated by the military. Myanmar does not seem to be able to get out of here any time soon. Because their governance also depends a lot on the will and reluctance of neighbouring China and the United States.


A significant aspect of Myanmar's politics is that after a long period of rule, Myanmar's military has largely become a political institution. 

They also want a constitutional share of power. For this reason, the military was made a partner in power by amending the constitution in 2008. 

No other country in the world has such a constitutional right to military power. The military is created for the security of the country. But the activities of the army were never limited to security.

From ancient history to the present, there have been instances of military intervention in all periods. The military always seizes power for the sake of patriotism and protection of the country. 

The Roman emperor Julius Caesar came from the military and became emperor. He was ousted by the army. The military's seizure of power has seeped into the state structure.

 Although most countries in the world have been able to restructure this structure, Myanmar has a permanent military presence in politics. 

Myanmar does not seem to be able to get out of here any time soon. Because their governance also depends a lot on the will and reluctance of neighbouring China and the United States.

It is a positive process to hope for the transition to democratic governance. But the reality must be taken into account.

 If China and the United States think that there is a need for a democratic government in Myanmar, then democracy will be established there. Otherwise, the chances are low.

 The geographical location, the proximity of the Indian Ocean, the combination of natural resources, the border with China — all these things need to be considered to discuss Myanmar's political future.

 These are resources and benefits for Myanmar, but also a curse. That is why democracy does not come to Myanmar. The military runs the country as a puppet of foreign powers.

Many suspects that China is fueling the coup in Myanmar. Just three weeks ago, the Chinese Foreign Minister visited Myanmar. He met with Myanmar's army chief and Suu Kyi.

 China would never want the United States to come and start breathing down its neck. If Suu Kyi's party returns to power and the influence of pro-China military officers in the government diminishes, China may fall into disrepair.

 A few days ago, Myanmar was leaning towards the United States and India. At the time, Myanmar's military officials blamed China for helping the Karen rebels. If China is fueling this coup, then China's position in Myanmar is getting stronger.

Everyone will start a new understanding with the new military government of Myanmar. They will try to realize their interests. China will appear with a new investment offer. The United States would like to have a military agreement.

Again, the question of whether the United States had a role in the coup cannot be avoided. 

The new administration has begun work in the United States. May provoke Myanmar's military to let everyone know its presence.

This is all an idea. There is no visual evidence. But keep in mind that diplomacy has changed during the Cold War. At that time, the government of dislike was thrown away in any way. 

Now the government of another country has to be brought to its side no matter what.

In this changed world order, Myanmar's coup will not affect regional and international politics. Rohingya repatriation from Bangladesh will remain pending. 

Everyone will start a new understanding with the new military government of Myanmar. Will try to realize their interests. China will come up with new investment offers. 

The United States would like to have a military agreement. May offer arms sales. If everyone can be held accountable, Myanmar's military government will be able to stay for a long time or bring its party to power through elections.

These issues will become clearer if we see the reaction of the world leaders after the coup. The United States has, as usual, expressed concern. 

They condemned the arrest of Su Kyi. The European Union will join them in condemnation. But don’t take too drastic action. They may impose a ban on negligible issues.

China, meanwhile, has urged everyone to remain calm. In hindsight, it seems, everyone has accepted Myanmar's military rule.




 This will benefit everyone. But in the long run, Myanmar will suffer. Democracy will be weaker, it will never be able to stand as a stable and strong country.
