Wake up, Aung San Suu Kyi!

I think Aung Sang Suu Kyi needs to really address this terrible problem instead of ducking questions.

She won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1991 for being incredible in returning democracy to Myanmar. She finally rose to power in 2015, winning 86% of the seats. However, when the atrocities commited by the Myanmarese military came into the public eye, what did she do? Nothing. She's supposed to be the leader of the country! She might be good at doing some things, but I wish she would help the Rohingya. She should get them out of already struggling Bangladesh, get them out of poverty, and question the military about their acts. Just because they're a different religion, doesn't mean they should be attacked.

On the other hand, I suppose she's doing her best in a very difficult situation. It must be very hard to run a country that's just come out of crisis and is now facing another. Are the military still quite seperate from the government?

What are your views on the subject?
