American journalist detained in Myanmar while trying to board flight out of country

I agree world war 3 is not worth saving Burma. Russia is selling weapons to the regime, the Thai junta is supplying food, and China is doing nothing even though they are facing a huge civil war on their border.

The rohingya thing, again, was terrible, but even I didn't know how brutal the TMD could be. Daw Su baffled me at the UN re: rohingya. I guess she was being blackmailed. It's not like the rohingya are better off post coup, their camps are being burned down, even in bangladesh.

The most america could do is get the UN security council to enact an arms embargo if china would stop vetoing it, but they won't, so the US really has no leverage. I wouldn't be surprised if they close the embassy soon.
