Myanmar: The Coming Jihad
Myanmar (always Burma in my book) looms on the horizon as the next place where jihadists will congregate. It may not be on any one else's radar, but the Salaafis have been complaining about the Buddhist majority's treatment of Muslims for the past year. As the violence ramps up, I expect the international Islamists to begin to organize around the issue:
Anti-Muslim mobs rampaged through three more towns in Myanmar's predominantly Buddhist heartland over the weekend, destroying mosques and burning dozens of homes despite government efforts to stem the nation's latest outbreak of sectarian violence. President Thein Sein had declared an emergency in central Myanmar on Friday and deployed army troops to the worst-hit city, Meikhtila, where 32 people were killed and 10,000 mostly Muslim residents were displaced. But even as soldiers restored order there after several days of anarchy in which armed Buddhists torched the city's Muslim quarters, the unrest has spread south toward the capital, Naypyitaw.Burma better get its act together and put a lid on this before this turns into a full scale insurgency. People will only take so much oppression, and if there's anything we've learned over the past 10 years is that Muslims don't complain much when one group of Muslims are oppressing another group of Muslims. But when the kafir are responsible, the gloves come off.

After and if Assad's Sunnis fall the first action will be the slaughter of them. Then the Muslim Brotherhood and Al Queda, Hamas, Hezbollah and whoever will concentrate on Jordan. After Jordan I honestly feel an all out ground assault on Israel in overwhelming numbers. Assad staying in power will slow things down. I'm bothered by the fact that he will then be beholding to Iran.
The United States should have shut up and kept out of this. But as usual we must always back the loser. Then the winner hates us for backing the loser and the loser hates us for not doing enough for them to win.

A large mohammedan minority ALWAYS brings on a struggle for control.
So either the Burmese fight to keep mohammedan numbers down, or the Burmese will have to fight off a large mohammedan minority, but either way there's going to be a fight
