    Well done Sri Lanka, for once you have shown you have balls. Wish you had those same balls to cull the crooks, thugs, bigots, corrupt Ali Baba's destroying this nation from inside.

    BUFFALO ..... HOW DO YOU FEEL WHEN YOU GO ALONG ALIBABA MADE HIGH WAYS, FEEL LIKE GOING TO HEAVEN ?

    @ANTON Alibaba didn’t make highways. He hasn’t lifted a single finger in history. He didn’t win the war - that was the defence force. He hasn’t built anything - that was other countries on borrowed money..which your taxes will need to pay for.The only thing he has done is brainwashed folk like you.

    forget about race or religion or who owns the capital. but USA threatening other countries over the voting is a serious issue

    Isolate the US they think no end of themselves by using their super power identity. China and Russia are the real super powers in the world though they do not blow their own trumpet.

    USA is broke with trillions of debt to China, Saudi and others. That's the real reason why they cannot fund UN. This is just an excuse to cut funding to the UN.

    Samitha Friday, 22 December 2017 05:55 PM

    Fully agree with you Chari. Like what Emperor Nero played the Violin let them also do so .

    k.soysa Friday, 22 December 2017 05:58 PM

    Just consider (1) what have we ever gained by supporting the Arab nations against Israel? Did we get support during the war, are our poor women in these countries getting a better deal, etc as against what we get from the U.S. That is reality. (2) For those of us who believe the Bible, I refer to a passage in the Book of the Prophet Zechariah, Chapter 12, verses 3 to 9. If one reads that, one may realize that one or all of creation cannot stop the Lord God of creation from doing what He has said He will do. Not even Trump!!

    Who the hell depending on US aids The New President of US relay a Crazy GUY he says he will cut off aids for the countries who vote in favor for UN 130 the US in dept to specially China what the hell he is talking

    Saraa Goyya Friday, 22 December 2017 08:16 PM

    Well done SriLanka in defying Trump's "Slave owner's mentality" - Threatening the slaves, "I cut off your food and lodging if you don't vote for me". He doesn't know that UN member states are sovereign nations.

    Sambo Friday, 22 December 2017 09:17 PM

    The people of the US who voted fro trump will soon or later realize the mistake they have done by voting for Trump. In the future the US will be isolated from the entire world as money is not everything in life and the world will not dance to the tune of Donald Trump. God has said don't let your left hand know what you right hand gives.

    This is what happens when the battery goes flat in Trump's Dildo.
