The Plight of the Rohingya - its all predictable as I outlined

Its quite distressing and dismaying to see the plight of the Rohingya's in Myanmar. However as I outlined in Diagonal Lengths, how do you cope when the government itself is the perpretator, and use sovereignty to draw a veil across their misdeeds. That is why in Diagonal Lengths I made the case for an international body, the World Compliance Organization, (WCO) that has the absolute right to go anywhere in the world to ensure that people's human rights are not being violated without the need for their personnel to get Visas / Travel Documents or any prior notification.

In the absence of such a body that could go and see exactly what is happening, then the tragic situation being faced by the Rohingya's was sadly entirely predictable as something that could and will unfortunately continue to happen in the future until we create the systems that will directly expose and prevent this happening.
