War and conflict in Sri Lanka would not fetch foreign aid

    There is no free lunch and also very little moral in international politics.

    Don t expect anyone to help us. The only people who have concern & stake in Sri Lanka are the Sinhalese Tamils Muslims etc.

    Good article, but how can a country be expected to prosper if terrorists run one-third of it?

    Countries whom did made disasters to hole world in the past now calling for globalization.

    States who support Terror linked front organzations...whom do make safe heavens should settle issues under their own nose.

    German Ambassador is free to bring his countries version of foreign aid...but not the hole EU`s voice.

    If they should stop propagating terror sells in EU Countries.

    [And where do you think you are getting the money and weapons from at present?

    Without foreign intervention, you sorry lot are NOTHING!]

    We need to get money & weapons because Sri Lankans are foolish.

    Sri Lankans(Sinhalese & Tamils) deserve what they suffer now.

    [People of Germany and for that matter even the international community though are willing to help Sri Lanka, they ask the question as to why should support countries that spend more on arms than on schools and hospitals.]

    What people of German must understand:

    1. How they treated Jews

    2. They can`t develop Sri lanka donating few millions

    3. They are the people who make arms, not so called poor countries

    [Many Sri Lankan business people are investing in Bangladesh so how can you convince us to invest here?]

    He forgot diaspora money. If the country is at peace, even two countries Sri Lanka and Tamil Eelam, diaspora money will be pouring in.

    Mooda Muniya does not get it!

    Imperator:

    [Good article, but how can a country be expected to prosper if terrorists run one-third of it?]

    Though, I am not saying anything against Tamil Eelam, the problem of this article is that there are counter examples to what Hon. Ambassador is saying.

    One is Afghanistan and other is Iraq. Both countries are at war and both countries their own citizens had lost faith. In Iraq, it is estimated 2-3 million left the country. Still West, including Germany, poured billions and even have their troops fighting. Someone should remind the Ambassador this point.

    The war in Sri Lanka is a different war. So, in my honest openion, this article is missing the point.
