Myanmar: US-backed NUG Opposition Declares War on Own Country

September 22, 2021 (The New Atlas) – Myanmar’s US-backed opposition “National Unity Government” (NUG), after months of its so-called “People’s Defense Forces” carrying out nationwide terrorism, has “declared war” on its own nation.

The move puts Myanmar one step further down the path toward a Libya-style US intervention and inevitably the destabilization and destruction of the country and the advancement of US foreign policy objectives regarding the encirclement and containment of China.
