Sri Lanka, and the LLRC

There is a huge fuss about a US backed UN resolution that aims to pressure Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations in LLRC. Nationalists everywhere are up in arms about how the US is trying to take over Sri Lanka and place their own people in charge of the country etc etc. It’s funny because the LLRC is a Sri Lankan body mandated by the Sri Lankan government to give recommendations to Sri Lanka. So, SRI LANKA Y U NO LISTEN TO YOURSELF?

But all this fuss is a wonderful opportunity to divert attention away from the price hikes and protests against the government. Smokescreen anyone?

    Quite right but the intensity is surprising. I’m begining to think that there is also genuine outrage with the infidels of the West.

    The majority is happy with the status quo. The war has ended; they want do put the entire mess behind them, but the idea of accountability drags the entire thing back into daylight and a lot of people don’t want that.
