Three interests
1. SuuKyi's personal interest is power for herself. She wants to be President.
2. Interests of Burmese people: freedom, democracy, human right, employment, public health, better education, better economy, justice, right to be Buddhist without Rohingyas. ALL beyond or outside SuuKyi's interest.
3. US,'new powerful ally' of Burma: keep China in check, extend inflence to Asia Pacific.

Poor Burmese people. SuuKyi had used them for her own intetest.Power.
