"We're getting progressively closer to that point where we can start conceiving of Myanmar as essentially a failed state," Hervé Lemahieu, the director of the power and diplomacy program at the Lowy Institute, told CNBC's "Squawk Box Asia" on Monday.

That would be a first sign that perhaps things are moving," he said.
Rodger Baker, senior vice president for strategic analysis from a geopolitical consultancy at Stratfor, also echoed a similar view. He called for greater intervention from the international community to bring about stability in the country.
"I think the big pressure point on the military would end up being economic, but it's not clear that western sanctions alone would be enough to stop that and to cut them off," he said in reference to the military's crackdown on protesters.

He said that could be challenging given China "doesn't want to push its neighboring countries too far," as in the case of North Korea. A breakthrough to resolve the Myanmar crisis soon seems unlikely, he added.
"Right now, it's not clear that the British and the Americans are willing to take physical action," Baker said. "India, clearly wants to maintain some level of contact with the government of Myanmar and try to play the edges here. Unless China makes a major move, it's hard to see that we have a significant breakthrough diplomatically."
