Myanmar Junta Cannot Last Long: Kachin Leader


"A leader of the Kachin Independence Organization (KIO), the political wing of the powerful Kachin Independence Army (KIA) which is fighting the regime, says Myanmar’s junta is unlikely to survive as it is crippled by low morale and declining power."


The article brags about the KIA training 4,000 new troops. The country's regular military is said to have more than 400,000. Economically it's the same. NUG brags when they take in money that is little better than sales from a flea market. The regular government takes in a regular government's share of revenue.


Wisdom is to decide what you can realistically do with your resources. In the international community, politics is the ability of a nation to threaten war, to push its weight around. But virtually nobody likes real war. Myanmar has been in internal war for the better part of a century. It currently has a rare opportunity to extricate itself from this. Don't waste the moment.
