  1. US killed 300000 people in atomic bomb attack in Japan, Contrary to what was shown in CNN, some other TV channels show actual footage of areal bombings of Iran, Iraq, Syria etc killing thousands of innocent people. When is US starting to ask UN to investigate these? Why UN office is controlled by US? In general, Us is benefited from Terrorism by increasing sales of weapons therefore US should not involve in Sri Lanka issue as one day it will be a “boomerang” for them

  2. The US will make sure that no more pivoting towards China anymore. The Rajapaksas will be broken into even further.
