What happens in the west stays in the west

A lot of the things I have been thinking about the UN and its Humanitarian mission has been really well put in this article

For years, the US and the NATO countries have been trying to vanquish the Al Qaeda and the Taliban, without much success. In the past decade, the US and other western militaries, operating in Iraq and Afghanistan to take just two recent examples, have killed and maimed scores of civilians. But except for cursory apologies, none of these nations or the defenders of human rights operating from the safe havens of western capitals have bothered to even acknowledge their gross mistakes.

  1. If you ask me, those idiots at DC and London should have Rajapakse give them a honorary lecture on eradicating terrorists. And some one please tell me that US was showering flowers on Iraqis while Sri Lankans were killing their own nationals.
    SL was dealing with a real problem in its own backyard. US was dealing with a problem of its own creation. It abetted the creation Al Qaeda during Cold War. And now sees it as the proverbial and omnipresent enemy in any country it wants to invade.

  2. haha!
    pl be well-read before u make a comment.
    Count the number of Chinese off-the-mainland ports around India. Rajapakse is supposed to have mortgaged some territories of Lanka to the Red-World to solve the issues. He has simply done something what Afghans did with US during coldwars.
    And for the US, Al-Qaeda is not a problem, it only is an excuse.
