    This is my tenth trip to Sri Lanka and what has not changed is the frequent killings among the Sinhalese community.By comparison the Tamil North is a very peaceful.

    The Sinhalese are inherently brutal and violent.

    True? That's why Tamils from North migrated and settled in south when LTTE was in full swing???

    Rambo,to escape the LTTE terrorists the Tamils got shelter even in the jungles. So according to your logic the jungles must be safe places.

    There is no Sinhalese and Tamil issue here. By their names it appears that both are not Sinhalese These are drug cartels killing each other and government is unable to control even they make noices

    Government is silent because they are funding the powerful MPs.
