Former opposition leader sucking up to generals

It’s about time the media dropped the appellation “Burmese opposition leader” before the name of Nobel peace prize winner, Aung San Suu Kyi. She remains completely mute on the continuing ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims. Last week she defended neoliberal land grabs that dispossess thousands of farmers & enrich the military & told the heckling farmers, “I think we have to deprioritize our emotions & needs when it comes to the greater good.” This week she’s in the reviewing stand chatting up the generals at a military parade. Did she have to deprioritize her emotions or does betrayal of trust come as easy to her as it does to Obama?
