Over 140,000 Rohingya (Muslim minorities living in Burma's western region) have been displaced in the past year. The United States and England have been relaxing sanctions and opening the country to trade and investment, staying quiet about these atrocities. Even Aung San Suu Kyi, the country's standard-bearer for democracy and freedom is largely silent on the issue. I spent three weeks in Myanmar last summer and was amazed by how friendly and kind everyone was. Still, I was there right at the start of the conflict, and so I remember the millitary trucks in the street filled with armed soldiers. I also remember how afraid people were that the conflict would spread.
