US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday welcomed a UN resolution urging Sri Lanka to "credibly investigate" allegations of war crimes during its battle against Tamil Tiger separatists in 2009. "The United States, together with the international community, sent a strong signal that Sri Lanka will only achieve lasting peace through real reconciliation and accountability," Clinton said. "And the international community stands ready to help," she said. [ full story ]

We thank Hilary and her husband to have come to the aid of the down trodden, May God Bless you. Your husband could not do anything as he was to tow the line with the then US policy and he did not have any power when the war was going on and however he showed his dissatisfaction of the then US policy. Any way someting was achied to control SL not to ill treat the Tamils. Thanking you again.

Mrs. Hillary Clinton has always been a champion of the rights of the downtrodden.During her presidential campaign she made a reference and singled out the LTTE and acknowledged that they were not to be branded as terrorists (which word was used by SLA, quite liberally to kill the Tamils indiscriminately)but as insurgents fighting with the single goal of liberating their people from the oppressing Sinhala Bhuddist Chauvinists. Without her efforts this resolution which stops short of a full scale international investigation, would not have made it to the UNHCR. Thank you Hillary from the bottom of our hearts for recognizing the injustices visited on the Tamils of the island nation, by GOSL.
