The Myanmar Coup: A Lesson for Americans

• by Jacob G. Hornberger

In an editorial, the Times says the U.S. government should impose "sweeping economic sanctions" to punish Myanmar's military rulers that will "prohibit American companies — and foreign companies subject to U.S. jurisdiction — from dealing with those Myanmar businesses or designated military individuals."

Yep, we have a brand new president and the same old corrupt system of foreign interventionism — and the same old destruction of economic liberty of the American people that we have seen with similar sanctions against countries like Cuba, Iran, and elsewhere.

The Myanmar coup is also a reminder of America's national-security governmental structure, one that the U.S. mainstream press, unfortunately, has become loyal and patriotic supporters of.
