It's time to call it quits on the e tended honeymoon that the world is having with Burma and Su Kyi. What's happening to the Rohingyas and the Muslims in Burma is apartheid, and by not raising our voice against it and taking decisive action we are becoming complicit of the same crime. Shame on all of us!

Because we all know how peace-loving people of a certain religion are if allowed to integrate in society. as evidenced by all the bloodshed in Southern Thailand.
I would not look too harshly on the Burmese for not wanting to have to deal with that kind of crap.

Editor Comment:It's a question of oppression, not religion, as a quick glance at the history of southern Thailand and Burma will teach you, William Taylor. Buddhists and Muslims live in peace as neighbors along the Andaman coast and on Phuket - the close-by example that perhaps the Burmese should follow. Honi soit qui mal y pense.
Editor, that peaceful coexistence will only last until the terror in the south works its way up, as it seems to be doing world wide.

Editor Comment:Huh? Ignorant speculation, Tim, with the factual evidence supporting signs of there being fewer wars in the world these days than 10 or 20 years ago. There has never been any sign of the problems in the south spreading north.
