Lifting the Lid on Burma’s Ethnic Violence?

    If at the beginning of this year I would have been told that Burma would become more like Thailand, that would not have seemed like an entirely negative development.

  • Almost SEEMS to reinforce what I’ve been saying right along: There is no global religion whose adherents aren’t capable of “jihadifying” themselves – in one degree or another – given the right provocations. And yes, maybe I’m looking too far down the road (not to mention the wrong road). But what happens, I wonder, if, as militant Burmese Buddhists start drawing closer to India, Burmese Muslims compensate by seriously realigning with China and/or Pakistan? And suppose the Kachins “join” them?

    All in all, very astute, farsighted post. And woefully undercommented on (speaking of which, when is somebody else – besides VM – going to start paying more attention to to our modern politicized/militarized global religion?).
