Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi Dodging or Driving the Rohingya Crisis?

Kyi’s “saffron monk” supporters are also rabidly racist, bigoted, and
violent. They have been the primary belligerents calling for and
carrying out the systematic displacement and genocide of the Rohingya
people. Suu Kyi isn’t dodging the crisis, she is driving it. 

June 20, 2015 (Tony Cartalucci – NEO) – The Bangkok Post has recently featured an AFP report titled, “Suu Kyi dodges Rohingya issue again,” which claims:

rare comments on Myanmar’s persecuted Rohingya Muslims, opposition
leader Aung San Suu Kyi urged caution on granting citizenship to
minorities, saying the sensitive issue must be addressed “very, very

The report then added:

in an interview published online late Tuesday, Suu Kyi dodged a direct
question on whether the Rohingya – who have triggered international
outcry as they flee the country on rickety boats in their thousands –
should be given citizenship.

protection of rights of minorities is an issue which should be
addressed very, very carefully and as quickly and effectively as
possible, and I’m not sure the government is doing enough about it,” she

“It is such a sensitive
issue, and there are so many racial and religious groups, that whatever
we do to one group may have an impact on other groups as well,” she
stressed.”So this is an extremely complex situation, and not something
that can be resolved overnight.”

If it
appears Suu Kyi is attempting to argue against granting the Rohingya
people citizenship, most of whom have lived in Myanmar for generations,
that is because she is. The Nobel Peace Prize laureate, darling of the
Western press, and venerated saint of Western “democracy” is backed by the very sects persecuting, butchering, and driving the Rohingya people into the sea.

the “saffron monks” that have regularly filled the streets on Suu Kyi’s
behalf, have also carried out a number of demonstrations over the years
advocating segregation, exile, and even genocide against the Rohingya
people. They have also carried out regular armed raids on Rohingya
neighborhoods – and then after driving them from their homes and
businesses – attacked them in squalid refugee camps.

troops operating under the command of the Myanmar government attempt to
defend the Rohingya, the Western press and a network of Myanmar and
Southeast Asian-based US State Department-funded NGOs
regularly decry armed exchanges with Suu Kyi’s mobs as “violent
crackdowns.” In reality, Myanmar troops are the only thing standing
between the Rohingya and wholesale genocide.

The UN
has regularly called on Myanmar to grant citizenship to the Rohingya, a
process the government has indeed already attempted to push through,
however it has met with fierce, even violent resistance by Suu Kyi’s
“saffron” supporters.

As previously reported,
the purpose of Suu Kyi’s violent mobs preventing the Rohingya from
being granted citizenship, is to give Suu Kyi herself an edge in
upcoming elections. Knowing that the Rohingya would also be granted
voting rights along with their citizenship, and vote for virtually any
party but that which includes the violent mobs used to torment them for
decades, denying the Rohingya their right to vote has ironically become a
priority of the “pro-democracy” Suu Kyi and her followers who are
determined to seize power.

The absolute depravity of
yet another of the West’s proxies should surprise no one, considering
the West has also helped literal Al Qaeda affiliates violently overthrow
the government of Libya in 2011, literal Nazis overthrow the elected
government of Ukraine in 2013-2014’s “Euromaidan” crisis, and is
currently allowing convoys of 100 trucks a day or more flow into Islamic State territory from NATO’s borders.
That the West is also cultivating racist, bigoted, violent mobs for the
purpose of skewing upcoming elections in Myanmar is simply par for the

The purpose of realigning Myanmar with Suu Kyi
and her political party in control is a two-part strategy. It is the
reassertion of Western dominance in a former Western colony (Myanmar
being formally “Burma” under British control), and  part of a wider
regional agenda to align all of Southeast Asia against China in a proxy
conflict that has played out for years and is reaching its climax via a
series of island disputes in the South China Sea.

in destabilizing Myanmar politically, or the prospect of installing a
client regime led by Western-creation Suu Kyi would help revitalize the
West’s agenda regionally, having suffered setbacks in Malaysia and
Thailand with multiple proxies swept from power, incarcerated, or
otherwise driven abroad. Exposing the true nature of Suu Kyi and her
“saffron” mobs is essential for real change and progress in Myanmar and
across the region, giving nefarious interests fewer noble causes to hide
behind, and reclaiming concepts like representative governance, human
rights, and freedom to truly serve the people, not foreign interests.
