"With the global human rights spotlight now on Myanmar, state
counselor and 1991 Nobel Peace Prize recipient Aung San Suu Kyi might
now know how to spend some of that ¥800 billion (about US$7.73
billion) aid package that the Japanese government just gave her… or
perhaps the donor itself can direct where the money should be spent.
However, before any aid can be disbursed the killing, raping,
abduction, and burning of Rohingya villages will have to stop. For
that to happen Aung San Suu Kyi would have to prove that the civilian
government has any control at all over the Myanmar army, or whether
the concept of a ruling civilian government is one that has not yet
been realised in Myanmar.
Given her silence on the Myanmar army’s rampage in Rahkine State on
this and other occasions, it is not surprising that an online petition
has been launched seeking to have her Nobel Peace Prize withdrawn."
