  1. Some of Power’s foot in the mouth quotes “Samantha Power Says Daniel Pearl’s Death Was Part Of A Cycle Of Violence”, 2002 video, below, came to light, in which she called for the U.S. to invade Israel. “Hi everybody. You know life has changed when you’re hanging out with Jane Fonda backstage. There is no greater embodiment of being outspoken on behalf of what you believe in — and being ‘all in’ in every way — than Jane Fonda. And it’s a huge honor just to even briefly have shared the stage with her”. Good luck

  2. Can you provide a report on which country supported Tamil Tiger Terrorists in the war? Which weapon manufacturing country provided weapons to both the Government and Tamil Terrorists? No one needs to visit Jaffna now, as UN did nothing when Tamil Terrorists killed thousands of innocent people before the war ended. The world can see only one thing: previous Sri Lankan leaders became victims as they defeated the terrorists, which appears to hurt some weapon manufacturing nations.
