Sri Lanka asks: Why is Prabakaran’s son death any different from Children killed by LTTE?

We ask the international community just one question. Why does international media, NGOs & Human Rights Groups and UN members attention get diverted (Only) towards a picture of a dead terrorist leaders son ignoring footage of innocent civilians and children killed by LTTE strikes over 30 years and not a single foreign documentary was released accusing LTTE of war crimes to seek justice for these killings?

Some people may be reluctant to answer this million dollar question ‘are animals safer than humans?’ I would say without any hesitation “yes” by looking at what is happening in Afghanistan, Gaza and Syria.

A soothsayer’s warning to Roman Emperor Julius Caesar before his assassination March 15, 44 BC has forever imbued that date with a sense of foreboding.

On Sunday March 12, Afghan President Hamid Karzai condemned a U.S. soldier shooting to death 16 people, including three women and nine children in Afghanistan.

Geneva: Forked-tongued diplomacy of the West will fail

US Attorney General Eric Holder has asserted the right of the president to secretly order the assassination of American citizens. Citing the so-called "war on terror," Holder claimed that this authority was lawful under the US president’s war-making powers and was not subject to judicial review. This position contradicted the resolution at the UN Geneva conference that denied the same fundamental right to any other country fighting a ruthless terror outfit. Sri Lanka seemed singled out by the US.

‘International community’!

Whenever the West agitates on an issue it always acts as if it represents the ‘international community’. We pondered for a while to study, in fact, who this international community is and whom it represents actually, and for our amazement we found out that it represents not more than 12.3 percent of the world population.
