Will Sri Lanka emerge victorious this afternoon, or have our diplomatic blunders left us in a tight corner? Can we take on the world without the support of our big brother?

Tell us what you think, below.

The US and Eurpean group is planning to drag Sri Lanka into deep trouble and give a better position to minority tamils in Sri Lanka. However the end result will be that Sri Lanka will have a strong bonding with China and Russia and the Sinhalese will build up more anger with Tamils and the government will not be able to proceed with the development for North and East resulting Tamils to suffer more.

We don't stand a chance against the behemoth that is USA. The poorer countries that cannot afford to face the retribution that USA might unleash for going against their wishes. We should admire the courage countries such as Bangladesh, Burkina Faso, Philippines, Uganda etc. has for voting no and prepared to face the wrath from USA. With all the pressure USA mustered they could get only 1 more than the countries that did not vote for them.

Now that the Resolution is passed, all what the Sri Lankan government should do is to go ahead in implementing the recommendations of the LLRC according to a proper plan and timeframe, then only the government would be able to escape sanctions at the next UNHRC session in September. Therefore, if there is an iota of intelligence in those who run the government, the best thing to do would be to make use of the opportunity and implement the recommendations in an open and honest manner. But, without doing that, if the government opts to listen to card-board heroes like Wimal Weerawansa, who is well known as not-farsighted but only short-sighted, and follow the advice of other racist jokers in jumping on to the streets along with paid supporters to conduct protests against the perceived “imperialists”, then it is asking for dangerous trouble voluntarily.

Everyone is happy with changing the pillow whenever headache develops. For peaceful co-existence majority will have to first recognize [not grant] the right for self determination of minorities and stop claiming that this country belongs to Sinhalese Buddhists. We have lived together for a long time despite our differences. But when one is pushed to the wall that person reacts in an un-expected manner. Who thought Singapore will flourish after separation? They do not even have a source for fresh water.Let sanity not ego prevail.

Sri Lanka needs a total management change, this isn't for tamils, this is the need of the whole nation. For example the corruption from top to bottom level, murders, gang wars, even the crime rates are up to a very high level in this country. A normal citizen cant live normally, If you have someone in the government you can do everything you need in order to get the work done. Corruption in Judiciary, Education, Healthcare basically everywhere. Ok I accept that MR deserves the place for defeating the tamil rebels but he is just in the process of cutting the hen that lays the golden egg. All at peak and the time has begun!!!!!!!!!! !!!
