The rebels, who say they are fighting to protect their minority members against government-sponsored persecution, launched their first known attacks last October and again on August 25.

Bangladesh is their home
Its amazing how the elites turned on Aung Sun Suu Kyi on a dime.
The BBC was on this story big time last week but why should one be surprised?
The British are so deep in debt and bankrupt they need the Muslim money from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf.
The living proof of that is when the Union Jacks were all lowered to half staff the other year when the Saudi king died.
In Burma there are no winners, only losers.
Those Buddhists sure do have a reputation for oppression. Ahem.
They need a truce to recruit, rearm, resupply and retrain.
moozlums are malignancies everywhere they infect.
