The Lady’s Fall From Grace
Far from opposing the Burmese military’s attacks on the country's Rohingya minority, which has created a refugee crisis for neighboring Bangladesh, Aung San Suu Kyi has blamed the attacks on Muslim terrorists and appeared impotent in damping down ethnic tensions.
- Syed Munir Khasru believes that she should use the moral authority that once forced the generals to bend to her will.
- But José Ramos-Horta and Janelle Saffin think that the focus on Suu Kyi is allowing the generals to escalate the crisis.
- And Yuriko Koike argues that the military’s oppression of the Rohingya is part of a strategy to split Suu Kyi’s Buddhist support.
