Growing up in the US we are constantly told to believe that terrorism is when the "enemy" invades and tries to hurt us...hurt our country. But in reality we are the terrorists as well. Our country sends innocent people to other countries to control, kill, and oppress them. That doesn't quite make sense to me. For one of my other classes we had to read an article, "Myanmar's River of Spirits". In the article it talked about Aung San Suu Kyi, a Nobel Peace Prize Winner who has been under house arrest for 10 of the last 17 years. Myanmar is a totalitarian country that is being controlled by generals. The article said that the supporters of Suu Kyi were killed or injured in the "Black Friday" event by the government supporters. People are being targeted and forced to leave their homes and flee to other places. This reminded me of the terrorism we saw in DAM. In the US we are often times sheltered from the "outside world". We become naive to what is happening to other people in other places and we tend to only focus on the terrorism that happens on our own soil, like 9/11. Yes it was a tragedy and yes we should remember but we should also be thinking about how good we have it in comparison to others. Terrorism is everywhere and in many forms. Just because we ignore and don't acknowledge that it's there doesn't mean it's not. Myanmar has been named on of the world's six "outposts of tyranny".
