When ceding to the military mid last century, the colonial Brits did not follow through on the Burmese states that had rights to self determination who were supposed to be independent within a certain time frame, eg Shan State. Coerced unity but disarray resulted to this day and seasia's nine are toothless against it. The west...?
The Myanmarese just have to sort out their differences steps by steps. Hoping on others will never get their problems solved. The problems are those economic sanctions imposed by the western nations to ensure the government in need to toe certain lines. Refusal in doing so, lead them to wallow in a quagmire, like presently. These fits the military just fine.
The CCP was formed 100 years ago due to many unequal treaties forced to sign by China with other countries because it was too weak to fight the imperialists Western countries plus Russia and Japan .China was occupied and colonised by 8 countries then . The compensation by China was enourmous which was equivalent to few years of GDP . These unequal treaties had improvished China for decades . This 100 years celebration by China is a reminder to all its citizens that China need to be strong and able to stand any bullying and colonizations by the Imperialists who will try to break up China again by intentionally supporting seperatists in Taiwan, HK, Xinjiang or Tibet . Taiwan was ceded to Japan after China lost the Sino Japanese war during the Ching Dynasty . Taiwan was part of CHina and USA plus almost all countries in the world recognised the One China policy . Although on one hand US recognise the one China policy , as usual US like to play Taiwan card to get its own interests by selling second hand weapons to Taiwan with 2 to 3x the prices . It also " promised " to defend Taiwan if CHina try to unify Taiwan by force . When pressed further by Taiwan authorities, US will keep mum or non commital . It is obvious that US will not sacrifice its citizens to fight with China in case China unite Taiwan by force .
Human desire for a better life for themselve and their childrens are natural instinct.
Communism/Socialism are the result of class struggle between poor working class against capitalist or landless peasants against landlords. The have-not has nothing to lose/fear hence CCP able to defeat KMT and a united new China was born.
In term of gorverns China many mistakes had been made by CCP but fortunately in every crisis a new leader was able to turn crisis into opportunity for reform.
Whatever governs best is best. Or Deng Xiaoping in the 1960s – "Black cat or white cat, if it can catch mice, it's a good cat."
For forms of government let fools contest. Western world are still struggle with forms rather than substance that will spell the end of one mighty Western world.
Dear Anthonyloh, The world only recognised "One China" and that one China was Republic of China but unfortunately when the Western World need China to contain USSR they switch that "One China" to People Republic of China.
Now the Western World want to contain China and they will tell you, you are the true China because you will celebrate your 110 years old country come 10-10-2021. Ignoring you are once a colonial of Imperial Japan.
These are the history facts no matter how you twist and turn.
If China can overcome all the difficulties and obstacles it's currently facing or in the future as fabricated and hatched by the US and its allies, and eventually emerge much stronger and more powerful than it's now. Taiwan will have no place to hide its tail and its face. It has no choice but to kneel and kow tow to China, like it or not! Like what it did to the Japanese when it was its imperial master!
