    The itching fingers of US cannot control itself without poking it into someone’s. It should try it with some of their leaders, to find out how smelly it could be. It is about time that USA keep out of internal affairs of Sri Lanka. Why are they so concerned about the security roles of the Sri Lankan Army? It looks like an undertaking to find out the weak links for future use. Will the USA allow a delegation from Sri Lanka to find out the degree of human rights violations carried out by the USA at the Guntanamo Bay prison? or to any other US Army installations in USA or in other countries.
