So, I had a chat with my long time friend monk who is close to an influential monk. He started off the conversation by sending me this text which was written by a military lobby who knows the weakness of most Burmese monks, the inability to differentiate right and wrong.
To give you an abit of context, right now people in Myanmar are not only starting to boycott but also practicing social punishment towards military families and allies as a peaceful retaliation. And my friend monk find it disturbing bcuz they only wanna see peace no matter what.
3/ but what he failed to mention was who is right and who is wrong. He just want people to be peaceful even if the other one is a big bully. This kind of fallacy is very common among burmese monks and conservatives. Which is also the reason why military was able to rule for long.
4/ and he went on to say there are lobbyists behind these uprisings. At the end of the day, it's people who will suffer not the leaders becuz they will run away and get asylum. Which is why he wants ppl to stop protesting becuz military is ruthless and it's a lost cause.
5/ and then he shared this fake news from GoshalLay about me saying DASSK conspired with @OIC_OCI to bring back 1.2 million Bengalis in 5 days. And Daw Khin Kyi foundation was the charity receiving those funds. That's why the Military had to intervene.
6/ When i asked him how many flights Ygn airport can accept a day, he went silent. I also added on by asking if he knew about the military's ship at Malaysia right now to bring back the refugees to which he replied it's military's way of relieving international pressure..
7/ Next, he asked me if Thein Sein gov is better or NLD is. Of course I told him honestly that it's NLD. But he didn't accept because roads and bridges back in thein sein era were far better than what DASSK gov is doing. But he didn't know what's a GDP..
8/ he also told me that military will surely give back the country in 1 year time becuz they definitely don't know how to manage. But of course without DASSK. I replied him if this would make any difference becuz all other parties are military's allies except ethnics.
9/ He said he had no idea but NLD will lose for sure this time and he suggest me to accept our destiny.. because it's a "suffering" to hate one another.. I have nothing else to say after that and just ended the conversation with a good night.
10/ The point is its not just this monk who's been fed with these lies and misinformation. It's the whole military as well as their families.Which is why @fbnewsroom and @YouTube needs to do enough to take down these fake news. I am sure it's not just me who've come across such.
11/ Monks, especially influential monks are extremely close to military families in our society because they are the only one who can "donate" and show their wealth. So, many monks tend to favor them. Military use that leverage and control on people who pray these monks.
12/ for example, this monk called "Vasibake" sayardaw wrote a poem on Facebook saying if one does not comply when asked nicely, it's better to be forced.He was implying to say if Min Aung Hlaing can't negotiate, he should go ahead with the coup. To which MAH'S wife replied, yes.
Final / so if we were to win this revolution, we have to educate people about what's true Buddhism is instead of Monk-ism and saying yes to everything they preached. One thing NLD did not do well is that.But I guess it's too late to blame now and we as a society must change that.

Look at the sea of people in #Mandalay.

But, sadly people from the cartels side won't see that because they aren't allowed to go out of their military compound and even allowed to talk about the reality outside.

Firefighters of #Mandalay joining the protests!

Another sea of people in #Monywa.
If you look closely, you can see the mountains behind. That's called KyaySin, and Latpadaung where #Chinese companies are exploiting for #copper and rare earth minerals. In a few years time, they will no longer exist.

1/ I don't know much about how military top-brass think that led to this coup.

But I know for a fact that the whole military structure was built upon separating their lives from the civilians apart from power sharing, doing business (MEHL, MEC etc) and asking for budget.
2/ They only live in their own military compound and not allowed to associate much with the civilians. When I was young, my family couldn't afford a motorbike. So with the help of a family's friend in military, I have to take military trucks that send their kids to the school.
3/The kids at my age don't talk and ask much about me and life outside their military compound.They will come to school with their military trucks, study and go back with the same truck at the end of the day.They are not allowed to go out with friends even during or after school.

Looks like the military has made good use of the recently released criminals. Every single townships and streets in Mandalay and Yangon are AWAKE to stop these thugs from looting, arson attacks and even poisoning of public water supply! #WhatsHappeningInMyanmar #Coup13Feb
The military is even using kids as young as 10 years old to create such chaos. In S.Okkalapa township, people managed to arrest one 10 year old and another 13 years old. #Military and #MinAungHlaing are no longer human!
The following two thugs were arrested at #Thingankyun township tonight. They also admitted that they are ex-prisoners with a letter from prison. A methadone bottle is also found on their body.

Thanks to the #Denmark government for openly calling out #military a illegitimate government. This is what #Myanmar people need and we truly appreciate your frank and direct statement on the current situation in #Myanmar!
The following is the statement by the #Denmark gov on #Military coup in #Myanmar at UN Human Rights Council.
But, the @mfa_russia gov says it's just a "domestic affair of a sovereign state and don't need to be so hyped up about what's happening in the country". They also believe that Military is acting constitutionally and therefore urges other nations to not involve." Disappointing.
