Many critics on the latest article by @the_ayeminthant in the new narratif (expected cuz it’s a hard swallow for the NUG). That said, we can’t dismiss the important point that NUG will need to be clear how it’ll hold the PDF groups that engage in IHL violations accountable.
NUG published code of conduct and made clear that civilians’ safety and well-being come first, which set them apart from the TMD. But they’ll need to follow through with strategizing how. Given the decentralized nature of the resistance atm, this will be difficult to achieve.

The declaration of #DDay and defensive war means a series of implications: 1) TMD's scrutiny of underground youth resistance groups is expected to increase. Already, we are seeing TMD taking bases in supermarkets etc.
It's worrying that we might see indiscriminate roundups of youths in urban areas. 2) Looking at TMD's movement in navy and fighter jets etc, it seems that TMD is alrdy preparing for an intense crackdown. On the other hand, we aren't sure of how prepared the @NUGMyanmar is.
