This Sri Lanka Massacre Shows UN Has Not Learned From Its Failures In Rwanda

“Operatives allowed themselves to be bullied by a murderous government” say the Independent.

“The UN will never be a perfect  organisation: nothing so ambitious could be, and the organisation will tend to be blamed for the failures of its member states. But it has advanced many fundamental humanitarian principles, of which the responsibility to protect must count as one of the most important. Nothing can bring back the estimated 30,000 civilians who died in 2009 in the closing months of the war in Sri Lanka, but if the UN is to learn from its shocking failure to protect those civilians it must do more than mouth regrets and resolutions.”Isabel Hilton.

      Sadly the behavior was like the Irish; Justice, Terror never like the Scottish; perseverance and control of self. That’s food for thought to the UN and the Brits who know more than any nation what both sides the northerner/easterner and southerner were up to.
      Therefore,its a matter that will linger long before the innocent northerners get something like justice for the present and future and that is very sad.
