Cowardly and disgraceful actions, or should I say, inaction.

Rescind her Nobel prize now.

"defend the national interests of Myanmar"

If that is her intent, she needs to first swing by Oslo and drop off her Nobel Peace Prize. Her silence before, during and after the Rohingya genocidal purge was simultaneously stunning and outrageous. Now she goes to defend the actions of the military? Shame on her.

A patriot defending her people.

What an embarrassment for the Nobel committee. The second worst winner of their once prestigious prize ever.

She looking more and more withered, as the poison of power takes over her soul all the comprises she made.

Honestly looking like Emperor Palpatine as she accepted the Dark Side Star Wars style.

The west African state of Gambia has launched the first bid to bring Myanmar to international justice over the bloodshed, accusing the southeast Asian nation of breaching the 1948 Genocide Convention.

You know you're in trouble when Gambia calls you out for genocide.

Hi Chip Star; the worst being perhaps Barack Obama (at least in recent years). Although I'm amenable to him and Suu switching places. There are valid arguments on both sides.

Arafat.

No arguments there. Arafat was a monster. That's why I hedged my answer with "in recent years".

Mandela was also a terrorist at one point.

That's why I hedged my answer with "in recent years"

That’s what I figured.

I thought it was quite funny.

If you don't know the truth and then you shouldn't comment bad or good until the truth come out.

Sad state of affairs for a strong Buddhist country and this week was Bodhi Day, December 8th, same day Lennon was shot and killed. Bodhi Day is the Buddhist holiday that commemorates the day that the historical Buddha, Siddhartha Gautama (Shakyamuni), experienced enlightenment.

And Lennon singing give peace a chance. More like Lucy in the Sky.

Blame the British for this, they divided up Burma, imported millions of Muslims as they were cheaper "workers" (slaves in reality) much against the others in the country. So after hundreds of years, the anger popped. This is Britain's usual strategy of conquest, divide the people, worked in Fiji, New Zealand, America. Too bad religion, as ususal, fueled the murder and rape instead of stopping it. But this crazy old hag needs to be put into the dustbin of history.
