All people around the world countries, been attacked by jihadists, would understand how jihadists trigger the problem roots and then pretend to play as fake victims.

Go ask those indochinese who live in indochina countries ( like in Indonesia, malaysia), been attacked or abused and killed by jihadists. Those indochinese will tell you how jihadists slaughtered them and how many indochinese people killed or abused in the past time.

Get your facts checked and make sure you expose those people trying to make money off the struggling nations (instead of spreading Fake News). Why isn't anyone & the UN betting an eye on those families in separate cages at the Mexican-US border? For once, big public gatherings in Myanmar that don’t involve the military whipping out their guns.

First of all, Aung San Su Kyi isn’t the president of 🇲🇲. Myanmar citizens barely have their rights. There’s barely any justice on the ground. How can a terrorized country be accused of committing genocide? How can Aung San Su Kyi, who doesn’t have much power over the military party, to fix everything the other party does for hundreds of years since her father was assassinated? Her own law advisor was assassinated a few years ago (presumably by the military).
In this Bengali (Rohingya) case: all the oppositions’ accusations to this Noble Peace Prize Winner are like “you’re a surgeon, why don’t you operate on yourself?” Because she Can’t ? She’s doing all she can for the terrorists & the victims from BOTH sides (Myanmar & Bangladesh). Myanmar took on many refugees and helped them. But, if the refugees get involved with terrorists and rape Myanmar women, the military would get involved and abuse their power to "calm the riots". ASSK has nothing to do with the decisions. And also, Religion has nothing to do with this. They had no proof that Buddhists committed this. That was also a publicity stunt the Bangladesh terrorists made in the earlier times of this case to deter the truth from coming out.

Where was the world court when Myanmar people were the true victims of genocides and injustice?

Please share the unbiased new clips in the English language so that the rest of the world can hear the truths!!

BBC learning English should teach some vocabularies like, “Myanmar has suffered the direct or indirect consequences of the colonization of the British and divisive actions on the central region and hilly regions or far flung areas just before Myanmar gained its independence from the British. The immigration problem (especially immigrants from Bangladesh) is one of these.
Meaning of Colonization, consequence, independence, immigration .... .... 🤭
