In Sri Lanka, voters will elect a new President this weekend and they look likely to bring back a familiar face. Gotabaya Rajapaksa was the defence secretary who oversaw the end of a decades-long civil war.

The UN says at least 40,000 Tamil civilians died during the war’s final months and Mr Rajapaksa stands accused of ordering war crimes. But after the easter bombings by Islamist terrorists, his strongman persona and family name has made him favourite to win power.

    Who gives a sh.. if 40,00 terrorists were killed. They are the only good terrorists, the dead ones.

  2. Cerberus Says:

    You have always been good at spreading lies. You have stated that 40,000 people had disappeared. 
    This is not true as according to the confidential files of the U.K Govt which were recently released thanks to Lord Naseby the actual number who had died is closer to 7000.See: http://www.island.lk/index.php?page_cat=article-details&page=article-details&code_title=211107
