The euphoria was short-lived. The hopes generated after India's vote at Geneva for holding Colombo accountable for war crimes, have now evaporated. With Prime Minister Manmohan Singh bending over backwards to placate our tiny southern neighbour, there is nothing much to cheer about.

Which plane are you living in Gamhem? So according to you if the Sinhalese dont have an issue everything is ok? Why do you think the Tamils took up arms? Your short sighted politicians, starting from SWRB,DSS all thought you could sweep the Tamils ,a considerable % of the population, under Sinhala Buddist Nationalism. You still have your head deep in the sand, wake up and smell the stink around you, before it is too late for you and your countrymen. China is all business, their "help" is all loans, with your country as the final prize. MR,GR are in bed with them for convenience. Dont kid your self if this continues we'll all lose our country.
