Myanmar's government has not demonstrated any interest in partnership, it is an authoritarian government that maintains near total control of those inside and apparently, outside the country. And that’s not very hard to see. In this new world of 24 hour social media citizen reporting, the government has learned to erase the Rohingya slowly and without explicit evidence – killing large numbers of Rohingya would be too public and so counter-productive - so the Rohingya suffer quietly, their wounds hidden away, and their destruction ever closer.
Twelve years ago, when I was a high school student living in a small New England town, I remember hearing about Darfur. I remember seeing news reports about the terrible conflict there, and about the hundreds of thousands of people whose villages had been burned or bombed, forcing them into exile. Then, around 2007 or so, I remember not hearing much about Darfur anymore. In the years since then, Darfur has mutated into a protracted crisis.
