Why has the West failed to address the Rohingya crisis?

20 0 0

One might adequately sum up the recent International Court of Justice (ICJ) ruling against Myanmar's military regime with the saying, "He who refuses to listen must find out the hard way." Myanmar's military leaders, supported — unfortunately — by Nobel Peace Prize laureate Aung San Suu Kyi, appear untouchable. They argue that ethnic Muslim Rohingya have only gotten what they deserve, and that, furthermore, it is nobody's business what the government does within its own borders.

Now the ICJ has ruled that neither is true. It even went so far as to call for "immediate measures" to be taken to protect those being persecuted. That is good news.

No real........
