We hope Aung San Suu Kyi, the figurehead chief of Myanmar, aka Burma, regretted looking for a joint press convention with Vice President Mike Pence eventually week’s Asia summit — as a result of he referred to as out her authorities’s ethnic cleaning of the Rohingya minority.

“The violence and persecution by navy and vigilantes that resulted in driving 700,000 Rohingya to Bangladesh is with out excuse,” Pence advised Suu Kyi on Wednesday.

Over a 12 months in the past, Myanmar’s navy slaughtered hundreds of Rohingya, a Muslim minority within the Rakhine state, forcing a whole lot of hundreds to flee to next-door Bangladesh. Tens of hundreds of the refugees stay lacking.

“I’m anxious to listen to in regards to the progress that you just’re making, holding these accountable who’re accountable for the violence that displaced so many a whole lot of hundreds and created such struggling, together with the lack of life,” Pence added.

As she has from the beginning, Suu Kyi dodged, claiming, “We perceive our nation higher than another nation does.” In different phrases: You foreigners simply don’t perceive why we’ve declared conflict on this minority.

In truth, the junta that really guidelines the land it renamed “Myanmar” is utilizing ethnic anger to distract from its tyranny. And Suu Kyi is plainly complicit — a former crusader for democracy who’s now serving because the beard for the thugs she lengthy opposed.

Amnesty Worldwide not too long ago stripped her of its Ambassador of Conscience Award, citing her “shameful betrayal of the values she as soon as stood for.” Extra: “We’re profoundly dismayed that you just not symbolize a logo of hope, braveness and the timeless protection of human rights.”

By the best way, Pence additionally referred to as out Suu Kyi on the regime’s jailing of two Reuters journalists, Wa Lone and Kyaw Soe Oo, who’d been reporting on the Rohingya slaughter.

Sadly, Workforce Trump doesn’t have many levers to push for change right here: Myanmar is shielded by China, which is busy brutally “re-educating” one million Uighurs — its personal Muslim minority.

Racist tyrannies have a behavior of sticking collectively.
