Myanmar’s military declared a state of emergency after arresting the country’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi and several of her allies in an early morning raid.
There’s a “country’s leader” missing in the title for people like me not knowing who she is.
A coup in a country where facebook helped to incite genocide this is not surprising me.
She is partially responsible for the genocide last I checked so I don’t have much sympathi tbh
Yes, but it also has to be said that the atrocities committed against the Rohingya are very much supported by the majority of the population, so any democratically elected leader would have difficulties opposing that.
My brain first read “country singer” instead of “country leader” and I was like - “What an odd choice of people to detain in a coup.” I reread it and realized that I’m a fucking moron.
