Eight years after WTC attacks:
Terrorism more dangerous than organized crime
It is eight years since terrorists attacked the
New York World Trade Centre Towers, the Pentagon and attempted to
attack the White House with hijacked civilian aircraft killing
nearly 3,000 people in the United States of America during the
George W. Bush administration.
I have refrained from writing much about Sri
Lanka since the end of the war on terrorism - although there have
been a number of topics on which I could have commented. I am
convinced that President Mahinda Rajapaksa has things pretty much
under control and that he is moving the country and its diverse
populations forward toward the unity and harmony he has promised.
The West has to help Sri Lanka instead of being critical
President Mahinda Rajapaksa tells Le Figaro:
In his first interview to a leading European
journal since the victory against the LTTE in May this President
Mahinda Rajapaksa has defended himself against the many attacks on
him in the West for alleged negligence of human rights and has
called on the West to help Sri Lanka rebuild and resettle the people
affected by the 30 year long war against terror in the country,
which had impacted other countries in the region, too.
