  1. I hope Mr Carter will pose some uncomfortable questions to the Burmese Government about the atrocities committed in Burma against the Muslim and other ethnic minorities including the Rohingyas. Perhaps he will also get a decent explanation from his fellow Noble laureate Daw Aung San Suu Kyi why she has decided to stay silent on this matter.

  2. Jimmy Carter is a doddering old fool. Nothing good will come of his visit to Burma.
