Washington’s, Not Myanmar’s “National Unity Government”

May 26, 2021 (Brian Berletic – LD) – We’re told that Myanmar’s “National Unity Government” (NUG) represents the democratic will of the people. In reality it’s a creation of and fully serves US and British interests.

In this video, I cover the deep US government funding that has been poured into several of the NUG’s key personalities over the course of years before coming to power. While the Western media claims Myanmar’s government toppled a “democratically elected” government, in reality it is clear Myanmar’s military is trying to reassert the nation’s sovereignty, stripped from it by Western interference.
