Myanmar Continues Fight Against Washington’s Other Proxy War

Update on US-backed fighting in Southeast Asia’s Myanmar…

– Myanmar’s military ousted a US-installed government in 2021, the US has backed armed militancy and terrorism across Myanmar ever since;

– Fighting has see-sawed, but has done so for decades as the US and British have backed armed ethnic groups since Myanmar gained independence following World War 2;

– The US has built parallel institutions both inside and beyond Myanmar’s borders to politically capture and compromise the nation;

– US-backed militants have relied on public relations stunts including symbolic drone and rocket strikes on the capital and the temporary capture of frontier towns where government forces are spread thinnest;

– The conflict is ultimately part of a wider agenda of encircling and containing China;

– China’s Belt and Road Initiative runs through Myanmar and has been repeatedly attacked by US-backed militant groups;

– The conflict is just one part of a wider global conflict the US is waging in order to reassert its unipolar “international order;”
