    I guess the US military themselves are to be taught a few lessons on human rights!

    [I guess the US military themselves are to be taught a few lessons on human rights]

    What about the US Administration which creates Abughraib in Iraq, Gitmo and uses `rendition` and then not only covers up all the crimes and massive human rights violations committed but also defends `Gitmo` against severe condemnations?

    The US Administrations have been funding and aiding and abetting massive human right violations in Palestine for more than half a century which shows no sign of stopping. Can any one imagine Boucher or even the US President lecturing the Israelis on human rights? These guys just shiver before the Israeli officials.

    Aren`t human right violations carried out in the U.S. itself on a large scale against Muslims under the draconian Patriot Act? Down right cowardly hypocrites, these Yanks who pick on poor countries like Sri Lanka for their preaching and arm twisting.

    Boucher has no problem as long as conversion is allowed, specially in Jaffna.

    The bottom most line is this. None of these countries will ever help us to get our problems solved (including US, India, China). Instead they will surely help us not to get those resolved. We have to get these solved by ourselves.

    Every country have their own interests (with the possible exception of Sri Lanka), provided those interests do not always need to be economical. That is the truth.

    Playing tactically to suit the occasion is one thing, believing these countries to be our guardian angels is another.

    It is true human right violation has been increased and unless GOSL takes some tough action to stop it the world community will not help Sri lanka.

    In a Radio News in US, a serious situation has arisen in Afganistan where US troops have launched air attacks plus ground attacks where a LARGE NUMBER OF CILIANS have died.One Afgan in the interview by an a Reporter said, that such a situation never prevailed uder Russian invasion or any other invasion.

    In Iraq how many people ar getting killed due to these US military attacks? US says they started the war because Alquida attack on 9/11.Alquida are from Afganistan and Iraq had no hand with Alquida.Now US says, they killedSadam because he killed a number of opposite camp people.Sadam did that as his life was threatened by certail groups according to paper reports.

    US can attck any body and its not vilating HR. SL Gov attacked LTTE as they attacked first.

    USA should worried about more things happening under the Bush regime or send their troops and take over Sri Lanka and finish the war

    [US military sales to Sri Lanka up from $1.4m to $60.8m]

    We will be tough on you till the figure hits $6000.00.

    Plenty to choose from my country / Isreal. Don`t look at paki / Inadia and Ukrane.
