Informations

The Tatmadaw (Burmese pronunciation: ttpmtteaa, MLCTS: tapma.tau; IPA: [ta.m@do], lit. Armed Forces is the official title of the armed forces in Myanmar (formerly Burma). It is managed by the Ministry of Defence. It consists of the Myanmar Army and the Myanmar Navy as well as the Myanmar Air Force. The Myanmar Police Force, Border Guard Forces Forces and the Myanmar Coast Guard are some of the auxiliary services. They also include the Peoples Militia Units and the Peoples Militia Units. General Ne Win, who attempted to create an autarkic society called The Burmese Way to Socialism, took control of the country during a 1962 coup d'état. After the 1988 violent repression of protests across the country, the military accepted free elections in 1990. However, it ignored the victory of the National League for Democracy, and jailed its leader Aung San Suu Kyi. Due to RSO attacks against Tatmadaw forces, the 1990s saw an increase in the conflict between Buddhists & Rohingya Muslims within Rakhine State.



The Tatmadaw rewrote Myanmar's constitution in 2008 and installed the pro-junta Union Solidarity and Development Party (USDP) at 2010 elections that were boycotted by most of the opposition parties. The next half-decade of political reforms culminated in a massive victory for the NLD in the 2015 elections. After the USDP lost another election, in 2020 the Tatmadaw annulled that election and removed the civilian government. International organizations have accused the Tatmadaw of human rights violations, including torture, ethnic cleansing, and sexual assault, and the massacre of civilians. The NDSC, a national security council made up of eleven members, is responsible for Myanmar's security and defense affairs. The NDSC is the highest authority within the Government of Myanmar.
