    Default U.S Holocaust museum find evidence of genocide in Myanmar

    after a year long study into the conflict the Museum announced they have found clear evidence of genocide of the Rohingya people.

    this report comes after similar UN report that called it ethic cleansing but stop short at calling the violence a systematic genocide.

    is it time for Western and Asian leaders to act and stop this violence from happening and if so how should they do so?

    The United States Holocaust Museum says there is “mounting evidence” of genocide in Myanmar, after a year-long investigation with Southeast Asia rights group Fortify Rights into atrocities against persecuted Rohingya Muslims

    The report, published on Wednesday and based on more than 200 interviews with Rohingya and aid workers, says Myanmar’s security forces carried out an “unprecedented, widespread and systematic” campaign of violence starting in October 2016 and continuing in August this year.

    I wouldn't be surprised. I have been there on a few occasions and I am well aware of their attitude regarding Muslims.

    I wish the perpetrators of the genocide could be destroyed with overwhelming violence and the government dismantled, but...

    Maybe it's best just to help move the Muslims somewhere else. It sucks, but I can't think of a realistic solution that wouldn't let the killing resume as soon as the west turned its back again.

    Do you mean a Cherokee > Oklahoma type move or a Jews > Palestine type move?
    Do the residents of "somewhere" get a vote on this plan?

    Can you point to any time when a plan like yours ended well?

    How about here? Doesn't have to be the whole group, but at least several thousand refugees. Encourage others to do the same.

    The UN can do its usual thing too, but there should be a refugee program run in parallel to the diplomatic solutions.

    remember when Obama wanted to do that with people escaping the Syrian war?

    There's also the option of arming the rohingyas. Set a precedent that these governments willing to do state sanctioned ethnic extermination will suddenly get an armed insurgency dropped on their doorstep.

    There's nothing morally wrong with giving them the means to defend themselves and it's something that can be done unilaterally unlike economic sanctions.
