Miliband's Enemies.

Miliband's Enemies.

I guess UN is no Commonwealth! Mr. Miliband.  You lost, again.

(Just type “miliband household expenses” to google or click this link)

I wonder why people elect morons,  to their governments and I really hope now some form of aid and relief will reach SL and those suffering people will have some relief.  These children have not forgotten how to smile. Hope they will continue to be so. These same numskulls, who argue, and say “we are humanitarians only if you do this or that”, could have started to send some aid, instead of running losing campaigns. These campaigns are a shame, they become instruments of politics rather than the real issue at hand. Some times I wonder if western countries did not want the SL war to end. If they were genuinely concerned they could have brought up the fact later, after taking care of the suffering.

I guess I learned about international politics during last week to last a life time. Conclusion, 90% of the politicians do not care about people but themselves.

Here is what happened at UN HRC.

  1. Finally.

    Now I hope that everyone will stop bitching over useless things like these and actually start helping those people who are in dire need of it.

  2. Yep, it was a special breaking news for us last night.. thanks for the details.

    Out of the mountain of weaponry and artillery(of the terrorists) uncovered in the mission, most seems to have been made in the European countries, prolly they’re in fear we’d uncover more truths. And our next mission – hunt for the traitors – has already begun here, is what our army chief stated on TV, few days ago. =D

  3. Yep, finally. It’s only the ones with their own private agenda voted against…

  4. @ Haruni – IMHO, what we need as a country is reconciliation and not more witch hunts that can serve to create more antagonism and fear

  5. it totally annoyed me when this al jazeera anchor was quizzing a SL politician why our government is recruiting over 1000 or somethign security personnel…

    I’m thinking SO WHAT? We are a soverign state! What do you care if we recruit a million? sheesh…

  6. Nice to see your involvement and interest KS. The diaspora need more people like you. Bravo!

  7. Hi KS, just to let you know I tagged you.

  8. More I look at this mother, More I feel helpless and hope less. I really want to tell her everything will be alright.
    I will do my best to make it happen so.

  9. BTW any guess on the agenda of those few european countries after this failure?

    They might not stop here.

  10. Hi, yes it will not stop. Now the civilian casualty figures are climbing. It has gone from 6500-7000 civilian deaths in last part of the war to 20000.
    I think they will make all sort of stuff but send some aid. I do not see anyone talking about aid. Pathetic
