    We don't subsidize the Sri Lankan offensive, provide support for torture. theft, and murder. If American academics write critically about the Shinalese government they are not accused of anti-shinalese racism and have campaigns to deny tenure launched against them. Our press doesn't shill for them. Our politicians don't fall over themselves to see how much money we give to Sri Lanka.
    Kos is not full of so-called progressive defenders of the Sri Lankan military etc etc etc.Americans od Shinalese origin are not colonizing Tamil land and waving holy books as title deeds. There is no correspondance whatsoever between Israel and Sri lankan situation. A decent diary on the topic but a bogus poll and premise.
