    Hey Tom, Dick and Harry make US also accountable for the mass murders, War Crimes amd HR violations they committed in South Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria, Libya, Egypt and everywhere else in the World. Show that at least one American politician has a backbone.

    This is laughable! The US coming to preach to us about human rights. Every day an unarmed black man is shot dead by white cops in the USA. What of their human rights? How about Iraq and Afghanistan lets leave Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos etc as that was sometime ago.

    Gamarala Thursday, 16 April 2015 12:36 PM

    America should be the last country on earth to preach to others . Over the years, there were terrible attrocities - the gross hypocrisy of the genocide of the native population, then slavery for 400 years, then segregation and McCarthyism, to name a few. Put your house in order first. stop murdering unarmed blacks

    The white man has come to teach the natives how to behave in a country where the natives have constructed engineering marvels thousands of years ago when the white man was still cave dwelling.

    Nims Wednesday, 15 April 2015 02:40 AM

    It is the height of the audacity of the WESTERN countries to send Mr. MILINOWSKI talking about human rights violations in Sri Lanka. Please look at your own back yard. You neither want see, hear nor talk about on going human violations perpetrated by these powerful nations, going on right now in Afganstan and the Middle East and other places.You do not seem to have neither shame or conscience,as evidenced by your comments. I am sure you are not oblivious to real facts regarding on going HRs violations occurring at this very minuteBig powers always played the same blame-game, namely accuse less powerful nations, drew the attention of the rest of the world away from the mayham they are causing to other nations right at this moment. Mr. MILINOWSKI, please clean your own backyard first !!!!
