    Please Mr.Kerry please go and see the ground situation in the Tamil areas before making any evaluation. American respect democracy and equality. if that so, it will not collaborate with any government that suppress minorities in any country.

    He (Kerry) never said any of that stuff. This is a statement supposedly drawn up by the Indian American US ambassador. Kerry is a dying bird of sorts that will end his career when Obama finally leaves office. As could be guessed, US ambassador who is a naturalised Indian in his adult life is working together with the India govt to push this puppet yahapalanaya to bend under pressure. At the end of the day, Yahapalanaya is going behind the Chinese for handouts as the West - UK, USA and the like cannot afford to give anything as US economy is bankrolled by the very Chinese Banks. On the whole the political situation in Sri Lanka has become a circus of sorts.
