I am bit confused with the country (Sri Lanka) situation due to the UN Report on war crimes over Sri Lanka. It is shamed to see some pro government Nationalist protests all over the country. Government is using the issue to getting back war mentality in to the general public.
Even after two years after the War the government still trying to maintain fear among the citizen of the country. For the moment some of LTTE leaders are support the government. But still they try to show some…Continue

Here follows a telegram-style short list of contradictions, foolish assumptions and flawed humanism. An equally short conclusion with prediction follows the list. I am presently working on a short piece on what could and should have been done instead of these terrible and counterproductive bombings.

the current situation trying to gauge international opinion and what
information is being released where.
The election happened last Sunday, and since then things have gone…Continue
