    Could it be that you reap what you sow?

      It would help if you could point out what, specifically, Muslims in Sri Lanka have done to warrant these attacks. In the same vein: If they deserve what they’re getting, are they, in fact, getting everything that they deserve? Should there be pogroms? Forced expulsions? I’m not an expert on ethnic relations in Sri Lanka, so I need more information here.

        I wonder where the Chinese are in all this. They have a big interest in Sri Lanka. They want to sit on India’s front stoop as part of their effort to control the South China Sea and the sea lanes from the middle east to Asia.They got the Sri Lankan government to stop fighting the Tamils according to the UN’s “proportionality” nonsense and deliver the coup de grace to the feckless rebels who’d bedeviled them for 25 years. Maybe the Chinese figure to get rid of the Muslims there before they become the annoyance the Uighurs are.

    All life is suffering…
    It would help if Mr. Mead had less US versus THEM headlines (Orange-Green War? really? is that a soccer grudge match?), and a better understanding of the intolerance of islam towards everyone else, especially the Hindus and Buddhists.
    Maybe Mr. Mead needs more mature interns who can spend twenty minutes doing background research before a post appears.

      ‘Orange-green war’ is a reference to the history of strife between protestants and catholics in Northern Ireland.
