Myanmar Violence: a Slow Burn US Proxy War

The ongoing violence in Myanmar may have faded into the background of global media coverage as much more intense conflict shapes up within and along Ukraine’s borders in Eastern Europe and as Washington raises the prospect of direct conflict with China in Asia. However, Myanmar’s conflict serves as a point of destabilization which may impact the wider stability of Southeast Asia and thus undermine China in a more indirect but still significant manner.

Compromised: UN “Special Rapporteur” to Myanmar Spent Years Promoting US Regime Change

The UN Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Myanmar Tom Andrews has spent years within the US government’s National Democratic Institute and as an adviser to the US-based “National Coalition Government of the Union of Burma” – he was also involved in Aung San Suu Kyi’s Nobel Peace Prize.

It is an obvious conflict of interest with Tom Andrews demonstrably taking sides, ignoring abuses by Myanmar’s opposition, and abusing his position at the UN to help advance US foreign policy objectives including regime change in Myanmar.
