    Mam do not worry about what we do here, see what what NO TRUMPS did to your capital, and the brainless lawmakers of the republicans still voted for no impeachment. Do not point to dirt in another eye when your eye has dirt.

    Yes those who call Sri Lanka banana Republic should migrate to the Gun Republic and the Knife Republic to be able to go to after life.

    The present President of the U.S.A. will vigorously engage and pursue human rights in the Third World countries thro the UNHR whereas the Republican Trump administration did not engage in the world body.
