In this episode of the Essential Geopolitics podcast from Stratfor, a RANE company, Emily Donahue speaks to Evan Rees, Stratfor Asia-Pacific analyst. On Feb. 1, Myanmar's military announced that the commander-in-chief of the defense services would take on all executive, judicial and legislative powers. State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi and other officials were taken into custody. The country was virtually cut off. The United States has called this a military coup. Rees explains what caused the Myanmar military to take control of the government and what happens next.
