Commentary on “The challenge of forging a new Tatmadaw”

The core value and central thinking is simple enough. A federal union must have a federal army. And with it, comes ethnic equality from fixing quotas to level playing-field of equal opportunity.

In a federal democratic country, the military must take orders from the civilian government and not the other way around. And until the present military establishment is ready to yield to the said core value of forming a federal union with body and soul, there is not much the people could do. It is as simple as that.
