I am foremost, disappointed in Aung San Suu Kyi's lack of inaction, due to the overwhelming amount of prejudice against the Rohingyas. I am also disappointed that this Buddhist majority country can even call themselves followers of Buddha.

I doubt the UN will do anything either.

Let's discuss this. I know you are all disappointed about the US election, but we have more pressing matters.

I totally agree, this is an incredibly important issue and I'm kind of shocked we haven't been adressing it until now. The more research I do on this topic the angrier I become. The UN classifies this as a "crime against humanity" which is already better than their actions with Rwanda, but just like in Rwanda they are neglecting to call it what it is, genocide, and that is extremely concerning.

Back in high school, prior to Sri's election, I believe that the minority muslims, or Rohingyas, were reportedly ushered in Concentration Camps. I decided today was enough, considering the new but minor wave of news sources actually devoting some writers to such a topic. So yes, you are correct from what I have read.

FTFY

I have not heard of this genocide. I have more concerned with the genocide of Christians in the Middle East, caused by the power vacuum when former President Urkel withdrew our troops, against the advice of all military experts and basic rational thought. Christians are the most persecuted people, worldwide, and the ME genocide is a far more pressing matter. That said, people under genocide everywhere have my sympathy.

It's a horrible atrocity. Unfortunately short of an international outcry, world leaders are unlikely to do much. Increased press coverage may help, hopefully.

I do not think it is a competition. If you want to make such a thread, then you can.

Is there oil in Myanmar? If not don't expect the US to get involved anytime soon.

OK you're right. It's OK for you to say "we have more pressing matters", but not for others. Goodbye.

No, I think it would be wonderful if you made a thread concerning such a topic of the plight of Christians in the Middle East. I was specifically referring to all the petty thuggery in the United States and the breadth of topics on this forum when I said that line. Again, I did not intend it to be a basic "Genocide thread". This would ultimately dilute the discussion both the topics can do separately, which will undoubtedly lead it to being a randomized mess.

So sick, never again seems to mean nothing. Then again humans tend to do things over and over, with a new skin.

That guy spoke to christians in Middle East, but in most places they are fine, and only in slected places where destablization exist is there an issue, and even there, more Muslims are targeted than Christians. This tactic of trying to veer away from an issue is a fllacy and bad arguing, by mentioning something else as if those Muslims in Myanmar have something to do with the middle east, even though its in asia. Not to mention the modern middle east has rules from their colonial masters that are implemented and are secular, they are ore victorian era britain and west than Islamic. But then again facts don't matter to people making comments like this.

Myanmar is practically worthless in terms of resources, trade routes, etc... so people won't hear about it much. However something should be done, but by regional powers like China.
