When look at diaspora comments here, one thing is sure. Sri Lanka is safe. Look at the comments. Never talk to the point, never satisfy with anything other than eelam. Never uderstand the situation these idiots are in. Never criticise themselver. AS LONG AS DIASPORA COMPRISE OF THIS TYPE OF IDIOTS. Sri Lanka is safe.

Srilanka should support the resolution, why they are opposing it if they don't have anything to hide? This lady sings for her bread and saying that the world should look at the developments going on, what developments? Budhist temples, Army camps, land grab, resources grab, these developments are for the benefit of the majority Singhalese.
