    Whatever said and done, US will continue its military support to Sri Lanka

    Failure to do so will increase Iranian and Russian support for Sri Lanka

    A day could come that Sri Lanka be in the same league as North Korea, Myanmar, and Sudan... Then again, this could all be part of Chintanaya!

    you mean Sudan right....anyway, as we all know, the MR Govt doesnt give a toss! There`s Iran, Pakistan, China, etc, etc.....no doubt US will continue its support although quietly. The MR govt doesnt give a rats A55 about what anyone says:

    [Earlier, in August, cabinet minister Jeyaraj Fernandopulle called the UN Under Secretary General for Humanitarian Affairs, John Holmes, a `terrorist who had taken money from the LTTE`. Holmes had said that Sri Lanka was a `risky` place for aid workers.

    When UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon described Fernandopulle`s remark as `unacceptable and unwarranted`, the minister made it plain that he did not `care a damn.` The UN`s response to this was silence.

    Important question is the amount involved and how much of that went to foreign staff and other items imported. Any ideas on that? If the amount is small, which I would guess is the case, no big deal.

    That is how the positive value added by American Tamils has worked against the GOSL. It happens. We just have to keep educating them.
