Military coup underway in Sudan

Amhara ethno-nationalist extremists are all over Twitter implicating the US as the main culprit behind this coup.

Irrespective of whether they are right or wrong, this conflict will have major ramifications for Ethiopia!

The HoA is on 🔥

If I’m right this also happened in the end of 2019 a civil war was about to breakout. I remember my friend at uni constantly calling his people back home but things became normal after some weeks.

I think this one will be much worse imo

Back in 2019 people said Sudan will end up like Syria.

It's hard to predict what will happen but I doubt it'll be worse than 2019. The current military leader Burhan feels threatened so he's taking desperate measures to control the country. Hence the internet shutdown and house arrest for both civilian gov members and opposition leaders.
 
Is Hamdok not an American puppet who styles himself as a moderate Muslim reversing Bashir "Islamist policies". The same one who signed normalization with Israel.

It was actually the military that rushed to normalize ties with Israel.

Hemeti had more power 2 years ago than now. He lost his gold mine to the government and is struggling to pay his child soldiers from Chad.

I use to think Sudan was like the Iran of Africa. I thought only the sanctions were prohibiting them to reach their full potential. Boy was I wrong, they’re another 68 iq nation
 
Under Marxist theory you can't really have a functional liberal democracy without enough development in your nation to cultivate a bourgeois class, as liberal democracy is a class dictatorship of the bourgeois class.

Due to unequal development, there IS a bourgeois class in Khartoum and a much smaller bourgeois in a few other riverine cities, and these are the force behind the revolution in 2019 and those opposing the coup now. Their opponents are of course the aristocratic class of landowners and hereditary leaders who want to maintain military rule, which is the dominant social structure and a class dictatorship of the aristocracy.

The revolutionaries are not going to win however, as most of the country remains undeveloped and therefore an aristocratic stronghold against Khartoum, which simply does not have the numbers or the heft.

Most revolutionaries aren’t from Khartoum or other riverine cities like Atbara. However, the military elite are mostly based in Khartoum. They’re also the reason why the country is undeveloped in the first place. In many ways Sudan was wealthier and more developed in the 1970s due to how badly the military battered the economy.

Zadna Co. is one of the few military companies that positively contributes to national development. They built bus terminals + highways across the country along with large industrial farms and factories. They’re launching a major agriculture/industrial project next year that’ll eventually bring $4.5b in revenue and they don’t want to lose that wealth which is why they’re hellbent on making sure they have influence in government.
 
This coup would fail as the people are now gathering on the streets protesting against it and also this move threatens the peace treaty that Sudanese civilian-military signed with rebel groups as fighting could resume again in the East and southern regions complicating things further.

Arab countries who were ruled by military for so long are hard to let go off power we have seen it in Egypt where the civilian president was overthrown by in coup and recently in Algeria where the popular demonstration against the old Boutaflika running for fifth term and imposing a new democratic reforms in the country was butchered by the military establishment who interfered forcing Boutaflika to step down and choosing their man as next president in false unfair elections which had low turnout but it secured the junta main interests in country.
