    Sadly this hasn't got enough coverage in the western media cos it's a third world situation but the Rohingya massacre should not be forgotten about. Please watch.

    Yet you see threads approved for what are clearly advertisements. (Liverpool Tickets Thread the latest). At least it got approved...try starting a thread about Child Sexual Abuse, something we all should be aware of.

    Thanks for the attempt though The Riedle.

    Its not because its third world that no attention is being paid but because it is Muslims being massacred by a regime which we support.

    If this was Iraq, Libya or Syria then Myanmar would be flattened by now and the leaders deposed.

    Well, you certainly did with me, TR .. even if one more person is a little more educated on a subject, you have at least partially achieved your goal.

    Ironic that the majority religion in Myanmar is Buddhism, which supposedly espouses peace, non-violence and tolerance. I guess they are, in reality, no different to any other religion in that they are all filled to the brim with people who are hypocrites.

    Thoughts are with the Rohingya people - hope they find somewhere where they can live in peace and harmony, and without fear.

    Thanks guys a lot gone on behind the scenes, innocent families killed, people who had their homes burnt and most are now in Bangladesh. Charities have done quite a bit to help out but these people were innocent with nothing to fight back with absolutely nothing.

    I am 100% aware of the situation but stating it over and over can not be a bad thing.

    Same as Yemen.

    Seriously - how old do you have to be to come into a thread like this and try to be funny? There are times when levity is required - this isn't one of those times.

    Sadly this is probably a bit true. Partly also as it doesn't have the strategic/economic important of the Middle East.

    That said, UK leaders have at least condemned it and at least the likes of the BBC are taking the time/effort to expose the atrocities in detail. All reminds me of the massacre of the Tamils in Sri Lanka a few years ago - an incredible lack of action from the West.

    Iíd heard and read about this over the past few weeks, but nowhere near enough information is available.

    I watched this documentary, at just 30 minutes, it cannot do what is happening any justice. Itís something that should be being played on the news throughout the day in my opinion.

    Utterly deplorable what is happening to innocent people in Myanmar. All overseen (which she denies I should add) by a Nobel Peace Prize winner, you couldnít make it up.

    Itís also shameful how nothing seems to be getting done by the powers that be around the globe in terms of aid, or seeing those committing the atrocities made to stand trial for their actions.

    Hopefully action is taken today, and not tomorrow, as thatíll mean another vast number of innocent Rohinga will have been either murdered, tortured or forced to flee their homes.

    You two must have some personaal interest in this triumph/massacre. Depends what side your on and what charity you work for.

    In no way shape or form should the word triumph enter this debate. Regardless of what someoneís opinion of the matter is.

    The media can make it what they want to. I'll not be passing judgement over a few media clips and videos.

    Unless the burmese government suddenly turn 180 degrees and make it hard for foreign investors to exploit the burmese resources.
    Nothing will happen

    Yes, we are both Human Beings with empathy I imagine.

    You should try it.

    But the trouble is if the West had intervened through soft or hard power then we will have certain special interest groups like Film Actor's Guild screaming that once again the US/NATO thinks it is the World's Policeman and meddling in affairs of other nations.

    So that we are aware. The Myanmese enjoy fantastic relations with "western" nations so much so that the US refuse to import from Myanmar and the EU along with Australia have placed restrictions on what and how much can be procured.
