Hi SDC
It does come top down though

Still not "the dominant view" on forum, Mr Hero, though, as usual, it seems your agenda is otherwise.
What's the agenda SDC?

Possibly a more balanced article? Worth a read -

"Self-fulfilling lethal prophecies in Myanmar"

Balanced? Lol. I prefer to read articles about the petroleum discoveries in that region by corporations. Another Al Qaeda, ISIS or Boko Haram? So who is supplying this ARSA army with requisites? The 52nd state of the USA called Saudi Arabia, which was recently sold billions of $$$ in military hardware by the USA & UK? Or do you believe Allah is sending this army weapons from heaven? At least as a Buddhist, I try to examine 'cause & effect' rather than mass media articles. If Saudia Arabia or other Muslim nation armed this army I could believe it was an Islamic Holy War if that Muslim nation was not the 52nd state of the USA. To me, its all the same modus operandi going on everywhere. Its the same pattern, once it is examined. While France was supporting ISIS in Syria, ISIS was killing people in France. Many can't put 1 + 1 = 2 together. NATO has supported the terrorists in Libya & Syria for the last 6 years, who murder Muslims, yet folks still believe this is all an Islamic Jihad.

Hi DooDoot

You don't think it was balanced? What was wrong with the article?

Have you read some?

Are Saudi supporting ARSA army with requisites? Are ARSA well armed? How do the Saudi requisites reach ARSA?

War is ugly. There are many sides to this tragedy. Every tragedy has a hisrory. Claiming to have a fair idea of what is happening without knowing the history nor listening to what locals have to say is not a wise thing to do. Understanding is not the same as condoning. It is easy to judge from our comfortable chairs what happens in conflict torn areas.
I had read all this before posting at the beginning of this thread, I know and condemn what the Rohingya Salvation Army has done as much as I condemn the Burmese military.
I always take sides with the innocent, who are dragged into a conflict they did not want (and probably don't understand in the case of children).

I don't care who started first and who killed who, I feel compassion and sorrow for all victims of this senseless conflict -- most of which as usual seem to be common, innocent people.

Are the victims going to rise to power? What is do you think they are going to do once they have risen to power?

Yes, likely.

The same things that those do who are currently in positions of power.
