Obama's onslaught on Myanmar'wins' the debt for the Myanmar crises

The government in autumn 2016 resolved to lifted Myanmar's financial sanction before the end of Obama's mandate. A number of members of both sides of the party and Foreign Ministry officers were appalled when Obama resisted their suggestions. It was an obvious shocker, because the militarised state of Burma was notorious for chasing anyone who was not a Buddhist.
Besides the deprivation of many non-Buddhists of Burma nationality, minority communities have often been refused the right to get married, education or birth. It is enough to say that Myanmar was not about to receive the Best Global Citizen Awards. During 2016, 46 groups on behalf of mankind came together to review President Obama's proclamation.
The UN Refugee Fund reported that by February 2016, "1.53 million refugees or bystanders had been internally evacuated or by the Myanmar administration, even though they have lived there for centennies. Nevertheless, Obama was resolved to put his picture of Myanmar's democratic system above the realities of a violent army regime.
Barack Obama was not even out of service when Burma's army allegedly began bombarding church and school buildings in December 2016. They are notorious in Myanmar's north Kachin state, when the army is not bombarding and cremating church buildings, for torturing, raping and committed other acts of violence to brutalise the indigenous people, 90 per cent of whom are Christians.
However, this is only part of the background of Myanmar's chronic proselytizing. And when a Western Orthodox choir makes too much noise, the army urges them to join them and beat the Christians. By the time Obama's sanctions were lifted, more than 100,000 people had recently been "displaced" to a Burmese-Sino camp on the Burmese coast, while 200,000 Rohingya had already escaped along the coast.
For the Rohingya, Obama's tranquil Myanmar fairytale continues to dissolve at the rate of warping. By lifting the penalties, the Myanmar army quickly took action to deport, prosecute or murder their country's most hateful minority tribes and religions, the Rohingya. This leads us to the heaviest and most brutal action by the Myanmar army that began along the coast on August 25, 2017.
Burma's armed forces launched a scheme to evict the Rohingya people living on the state of Rakhine's fine, oil-rich coast. It was on this fateful August morning, according to a US State Department statement, that the army began to surround the first of several hundred Rohingya victims. When the army went, they burnt the towns and every sign of the Rohingyas' being.
Today, the Myanmar army has displaced 90 per cent of the Rohingya people in the state of Rakhine and is constructing state-of-the-art camp facilities for all Rohingya remain. When Myanmar manages to persecute, kill and expel its minority communities, we must reckon that other evil players will do the same.
It' to fix the bug of Obama's ways. Congress should be voting to sanctify Myanmar and see what the freezing of indigenous peoples on its punished Burma cadavers is like. From 2002-2008, Nicolee worked for the George W. Bush Foundation as a representative of the US Department of Labor.
