"A [Myanmar junta] regime collapse triggered by sustained political and economic pressure from the protesters and CDM could still occur if the crisis drags out long enough, while a brokered settlement or ceasefire remains in the realm of possibility despite ASEAN’s division. However, the Tatmadaw looks to have the upper hand, and the prospects of opposition military victory against the Tatmadaw are slim under current circumstances."
