World socialists reject both US-backed resolution and Sri Lanka s opposition
TamilNet, Wednesday, 07 March 2012, 17:04 GMT
The Obama administration is pushing the resolution as a means of pressuring the Rajapakse government to accommodate US interests and those of India
At the same time, the Sri Lankan government has mounted a hysterical campaign at home against the supposed international conspiracy to tarnish the country s name
The bourgeois Tamil National Alliance (TNA) is likewise manoeuvring. It previously condemned the LLRC report, but now calls for the implementation of its recommendations in line with
Washington and New Delhi.
The TNA is desperately seeking US and Indian backing for a political solution , from which it hopes to benefit
The Socialist Equality Party rejects both the phony US-backed resolution and the Rajapakse government s chauvinist campaign against it, said World Socialist Web Site on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, Sri Lanka s socialist ploy and ambassador in Geneva, Tamara Kunanayakam was cited by Daily Mirror on Tuesday, accusing that the Western countries want only a regime change in Sri Lanka.
