Dark Moments

From 1962

On March 2, 1962 the Revolutionary Council staged a Coup.

A son of Sao Shwe Thaik (former President of the Union of Burma) was killed, but the Council claimed that the Coup was bloodless.

There were 17 members — a General, some Brigadiers (including T Cliff from the Air Force and Commodore Than Pe from the Navy) and mostly Colonels.

According to Kyemon U Thaung (Aung Baka), six of them did not know about high level decisions.

T Cliff resigned. Commodore Than Pe passed away. Brigadier Aung Gyi and his followers were later purged.

President Mahn Win Maung, Prime Minster U Nu and his Cabinet, Shan Sawbwas were among the first to be detained.

The later detainees include Chief Justice U Myint Thein, Police Commissioners, politicians, journalists, entrepreneurs.

President-elect Sama Duwa Sinwa Naung did not become President.

The Council handcrafted a Constitution allowing BSPP — with the “Burmese Way to Nowhere” as its Guide — to be the sole ruling party.

Some army bosses shed their uniforms, but not their power.

Burma was once the Rice Bowl of Asia and an aspiration for leaders of neighboring nations.

It had excellent Education and world renowned scholars and professionals.

Due to misguided policies and mismanagement, Burma saw a dramatic decline in Economy, Education and Ethics to name a few.

It will take pages and books to describe the aches and pains of the people.

Treason

February 2021 saw the darkest side of the Power Mongers, who have no regard for Law and Order, Human Rights, and International Relations.

They kidnapped Myanmar and tried to sell it.

How low can they go?

When will the World Leaders act collectively and decisively to help restore Democracy to Myanmar?

Myanmar does not need new elections.

Myanmar needs Freedom from Fear.
