Trudeau says he sent letter to Myanmar’s Suu Kyi about Rohingya Muslims

OTTAWA — Aung San Suu Kyi must publicly condemn the atrocities being committed against Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar, or else her rhetoric and global reputation as a champion of human rights will mean nothing, says Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

“It is with profound surprise, disappointment and dismay that your fellow Canadians have witnessed your continuing silence in the face of the brutal oppression of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslim people,” Trudeau wrote Monday in a letter to Suu Kyi, the de facto leader of Myanmar.
The powerful military in Myanmar is accused of burning down the homes of Rohingya Muslims, forcing more than 400,000 members of the persecuted minority to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh, according to the latest UN figures.

    It is with profound surprise, disappointment and dismay that your fellow Canadians have witnessed your continuing silence in the face of the brutal oppression of Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslim people (…)

    —“your fellow Canadians”?
    Is Aung San Suu Kyi a Canadian? Then she should run for President in Canada, she has a good chance of beating Trudeau.
    —How does Trudeau know that Canadians in general are (fill in emotional adjectives) about how she handles the situation?
    —Myanmar does not have a “Rohingya Muslim” people; it has Muslims from Bengal who want to take over the province, for starters.
    —“or else her rhetoric and global reputation as a champion of human rights will mean nothing” — Trudeau is now speaking not just for all Canadians, but the whole planet, as judge of all things.

    Trudeau’s fellow Canadians may well feel “profound surprise, disappointment and dismay” that their President publicly vents his so-called thoughts on an issue he is totally ignorant about.

      The last time there was a sizeable N. American presence in China was during WW2. The term “small potatoes” used by Americans meaning that something was inconsequential was prevalent in the slang of the era…

    Little Potato Head doesn’t seem to understand that some countries would prefer not to be over run by illegal invaders who wish to take over.

    • Little Potato should be mashed.

      She needs to reply that the Buddhist Burmese have no intention of becoming refugees in their own country, and that this “expulsion” is a consequent of militant Rohingyese attacking police stations and killing Buddhists in Burma.

    Here is my version of the letter.

    It is with profound surprise, excitement and joy that my
    fellow Canadians have witnessed your continuing commitment to protection of the people who elected you in the face of
    the brutal violence by the Rohingya Muslim people. It is truly a rare sight to see an elected official protecting her citizens from this horrible scourge.

    The powerful military in Myanmar is accused of burning down the barracks, bomb making factories and terrorist infrastructure of
    the invading Rohingya Muslim army, forcing more than 400,000 members of this violent terrorist group to retreat back to neighbouring Bangladesh, according to the latest UN made up numbers.

    Without the in person wit and charm of a grown man showing off his novelty socks, I fear his letter may fall on deaf ears. You know, the ears of an adult head of state with real shit to do.

  • He must be shocked that no one cares what he thinks.

    His aides must be exhausted typing letter after letter for him.
