So many sophisticated western men are claiming it’s pointless to criticize Aung San Suu Kyi. After all, they argue, she doesn’t control the military & is powerless. Before they go all macho-chivalrous, they ought to spend a little time actually researching her role in Burmese politics & stop trying to exonerate her from responsibility for this genocide. Burmese & Rohingya activists certainly don’t. She’s an adult woman with full capacity to make moral & political judgements & doesn’t need apologists any more than the generals do. In fact, Suu Kyi sits on the highest body of military leadership in Burma, right next to Commander-in-Chief Min Aung Hlaing, the chief architect of the Rohingya genocide. She takes her place in the leading body of genocidaires. Get real with this macho-chivalry crap.
