UNHRC and Sri Lanka; Time to remind the West about Hiroshima and Nagasaki?

The real mortality of the atomic bombs that were dropped on Japan will never be known. The destruction and overwhelming chaos made orderly counting impossible. It is not unlikely that the estimates of killed and wounded in Hiroshima (150,000) and Nagasaki (75,000) are over conservative.

UNHRC resolution against Sri Lanka - US and the UK leads serious disruption to peace and reconciliation

The post war reconciliation process in Sri Lanka is very fragile. It may have flaws. It may be incomplete. It is however a process based on restorative justice and not retributive justice.
