    Samanthan,You will never ever achieve reconciliation by making this kind of comments, which are considered as detrimental to Sri Lanka and its people.It is more useful if you can concentrate and support the government Economic Development to all the people of Sri Lanka as your comments or efforts on Federalism, Land and Police powers to Northern Province, Prosecuting victorious Armed forces against human rights violation by foreign judiciary are never ever going to happen and non-starters and if you are pursuing, it is waste of time and day dreaming.Think as a Sri Lankan rather than Kallathoni or plunderer or smuggler or invader mentality.
