  1. It's kind of hard who to support.

    The elected government, who has failed to protect and help their country and grown into a corrupt regime based on individual greed and wealth, all the while they let terrorist forces grow while they made themselves seem important by trying to play "hard to get", but they are the democratically elected government. They have cracked down on media, but they also kept the majority of people safe.

    Or the military, who overthrew and disturbed the fragile peace. They are attempting to break down the government, and are willing to kill for their power. But they are attempting to rid of an increasingly corrupt government. But introducing martial law in a fragile region is like pouring gasoline into a wildfire, in an attempt to calm the fire. It's ridiculous.

    Until more details come out, I'm on the fence of the situation.
  2. America in the future... :okay:

  3. The coup is almost over. The president has popular support and most of the military forces have surrendered to either governmental forces or civilian groups.
