There are calls for it to be revoked in this case

While Su Chee is not directly responsible for the actions of the military she has defended their role in genocide by making coded statements like the Rohingya are migrants (which is untrue) and its an internal matter (disregarding the suffering of people who probably used to support her). All of which are suggesting she is being ethnocentric about who is Burmese, pity given she presented a different mask of being compassionate and pro-peace when she was under house arrest all those years ago...

I assumed this was about Obama and ISIS.

Funny how people change once they get their arse on the seat of power. Been going on ever since arses were invented, though.

Obama's style is to rain fire from the sky, via drone, not decapitation. And it's ISIS who were his usual recipients of having fire rained from the sky on them.

I hope it can. What was it for anyway? I know it wasn't for crimes against humanity.

Yeah she should give it back, she is behaving almost in the same manner as the military Junta she was campaigning against

Uh no, it was mostly innocent civilians, some even US civilians. He supported ISIS in Syria and Libya.

Was supporting them in Syria and Libya to topple the government/s. Been very busy. Glad you missed me.

Actually, most of the people Obama supported in Syria tended to be Pro-Iran, not ISIS. Obama rained fire on Assad's and ISIS forces.

She's choosing her battles, and choosing badly. International opinion didn't put her in power, but it has kept her alive. If she loses it, the military may decide they can dispatch her somehow. Siding with them seems dumb, even setting aside participating in genocide.

I suspect she is keeping quiet to placate the military and in return allow them to quietly conduct "clean up" operations on Rohingya people (genocide). She may even be keeping quiet to continue to protect the ethnic Burmese population who support her from harrasment.

She will be astute enough by now to know this is looking like self-preservation but I suspect she has personal bias (carried by most ethnic Burmese) that Rohingya are "not Burmese" (they are ethnic Bengalis related to people in India) and so doesn't feel compelled to speak up for them.

My argument is that she has breached the spirit of the Nobel peace prize by not abiding by the principles of human rights (even if she thinks she is serving the greater good) so should return it back to Sweden.

Its also worth noting that while no one should doubt the ongoing massacre, people often use the specific crime you mentioned as a blood libel. No media are allowed in.
