    I wish I could, but I am but a small cog in the wheel. The shear bravery of protestors against evil is amazing. It is devastating that so many brave people are being killed for wanting their freedom.

    Former General Michael Flynn said a military coup, like the one they had in Myanmar, should happen here…. He received a Presidential Pardon on November 25, 2020… and on December 2nd, 2020, said that the president should suspend the Constitution, silence the press and hold a new election under military authority… Quid Pro Quo?

    The army in Myanmar’s second city, Mandalay, has clashed with a local militia opposed to February military coup.

    The clashes are the first time the People’s Defense Forces (PDF) have come up against the army in a major city.

    The defence force is a collective name for militia groups that have sprung up in Myanmar since the coup.

    Myanmar’s military junta has violently put down anti-coup protests in the country, killing hundreds of civilians.

    Until now, actions by the PDF have been limited to fighting in rural areas or small towns. Tuesday’s clashes brought the violence to a major city, marking a new phase in the fallout from the coup.

    Security forces have killed at least 873 protesters since the February coup, according to the Assistance Association for Political Prisoners – an activist group which is monitoring the numbers. The military disputes the figure.

    The United Nations General Assembly on Friday called for a halt in the international flow of arms to Myanmar, and urged the military to respect the results of a November election and release political detainees, including the country’s democratically-elected leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.
