The military remains an important component and it will always have a role.
If you remove the military's influence suddenly, there will be chaos as others try to fill the power vacuum.
Politicians from big donor/dominant countries are visiting Myanmar one after another.
The most recent one on 25 May 2013, being Japan's PM (4 months after his deputy PM's visit).
China, Japan, UK, USA all have their eyes on Myanmar.
Wen Jia Bao, Cameron and Obama have visited.
There is a tussle for its loyalty to the various dominant powers.
There will be a flood of foreign aid to build Myanmar infrastructure, private investment to build hotels, etc.
Myanmar has a strategic position. It is the land link between China and the Bay of Bengal/Andaman Sea.
