    Even if you order or not, safegurding the sri lankan in other country is embassy responsibility.

    During the Tsunami, US gov, sent people to help us and clear the affected areas while our people were just looking at it.
    Now he wants to protected only SL's. What a selfish thought.
    He should take care of SL who have been affected by floods in the north and the East.

    Better get Weerawansa's approval before helping Yanks or he might start a fast till he is given a glass of water.

    Is he to pick out only the Sri Lankans and assist them, or what? During the 2004 tsunami was that how things were done in Sri Lanka in the affected areas?

    With all respect to our president, Sri lankas who affected on this will get a BETTER ASSISSTANCE from RELEVANT GOVERNMENT(USA) AGENCIES than our REPRESENTATIVES there.

    I don't know why, But I started laughing hysterically when I read this. What can the Sri Lankan envoy on American soil do, what the the Govt of USA cannot? Hold a massive thosai party, and serve plain tea? Oh wait, The envoy will let the Sri Lankan use his cell phone to call everyone in Sri Lanka.

    Right now many families and thousands of others are partly submerged near Borella, after recent rains - charity begins at homes?

    who cares.. When people do wrongs & insult, God should punish and nobody can stop this except the almighty

    Sue Thursday, 01 November 2012 06:55 AM

    The Govt. in the USA will look after its own whether MR tells them or not. Unfortunately there's no one for us Sri Lankanks in Sri Lanka to appeal to help for.

    SL is a laughing stock any way....

    God truth wins. but who cares

    Knowing the Americans they would have already done the needful by way of relief for the victims. Only thing Shavi can do is maybe give them torch batteries.
