At long last 24 countries heard our call. The rouge regime in SL has to now face the possible ripple effect fallout from the adoption of this resolution. The Sinhala Chauvinists must learn that you cannot fool the world all of the time, by hiding behind the economic muscle of countries like China who have things to hide themselves in places like Tibet.The US and others that supported the resolution must now ensure that there is compliance. Investigate thoroughly the Tamils, Sinhalese, Indians and Chinese, who were all players in this theater.Let the chips fall where they may.Let there be a full accounting.
