Colonization Schemes: What Did The B-C Pact Say?

These are lands on which these people have lived for generations and centuries.

(COLOMBO) - R Sampanthan I am happy to follow the Minister, the Hon. Janaka Bandara Tennakoon, who, I think, in the course of his statement referred to the multifarious problems that exist in the North and the East pertaining to State land. I will be dealing with some of these issues in the course of my speech.

Lands, Sir, is a fundamental issue. It has enormous influence on vital aspects of human activity and it is crucial, particularly from the point of view of the affected people, like persons displaced during the war and so on. There are private lands.

Reconcilition South African Style Will Not Work in Sri Lanka

The mentality of the Sinhalese politicians since the date of independence in 1948, has involved making promises and signing treaties, one after another, and breaking all of them.

Are US Policy Makers Really that Stupid, or are they Evil?

Is it a surprise that in a world poll this week the US was voted the biggest threat to peace in the world?

(JAMESTOWN, RI) - Obama the warmonger Are US policy makers really stupid or do they have a natural talent for creating violence and hatred? The latest world poll shows the US is considered the biggest threat to world peace and our government’s daily actions and decisions assure us of a continued “number one”.

Iraq for example, just suffered its worst year of violence since 2008 with almost 9,000 deaths in a country that is a failed state wracked with civil wars, sectarian strife, and infested with large Al Qaeda groups, all trying to impose their will and agenda on a devastated nation.

Sri Lanka on Full Throttle to Save its Skin & the Tamils Will have to Match It

If the parties could get together, many of the problems faced by the Tamils would be solved. In addition to policy alignment, duplication of duties could be avoided. Travelling, which is a major cost, could be spread among all of them.

The government is bracing for the event, and already appointments have been sought with the member states for a lobbying-spree ahead of the session.

Foto: PL “Sri Lanka is fully able to undertake the tasks set out by the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) and to guarantee the rights of its citizens”, Foreign Minister G. I.

War Criminals By Default

In my analysis the real tragedy is that something could have been done at a very early stage to stop the killing and destruction. What was needed was for President Obama to have a private conversation with President Putin along something like the following lines.

(LONDON) - Obama My last thought for 2013 is that for their failure to co-operate and coordinate to make the United Nations work to stop the slaughter and destruction in Syria, the leaders of the five permanent and controlling members of the Security Council - the U.S, Britain, France, Russia and China - are war criminals by default.

There are only two ways to run this world of ours.

Regime Change Not a Viable Solution...

Regime change in Sri Lanka will only pave the way for an excuse from the international community that, a new regime needs time and space for its transitional period.

(PARIS) - Sri Lanka flag The 1987 Indo- Lanka accord recognized the North East of the island of Sri Lanka as the hereditary land of the Tamil people. Under internationally agreed arrangement, the North and Eastern provinces were merged as one administrative unit.

Unfortunately less than a year after Mahinda Rajapaksa was elected as President, the merger of the North and Eastern provinces was brought to an end on 16 October 2006, after systematic manipulation.
