Sri Lanka – Colombo – Buddhist Sambodhi Chaithya Temple

The Buddhist temple was quite near the docks. It was a big Stupa on stilts. A very interesting structure unlike anything I’d ever seen.

When the sun was setting it stood out on the skyline. Lots of women in white robes were heading off to worship.

      1. UK military veterans from a company called Keenie Meenie Services (KMS). KMS members were involved in war crimes against Tamil civilians at the start of Sri Lanka’s civil war in the mid-1980s – and escaped accountability. KMS also hired British pilots who flew helicopter gunships on combat missions, including an alleged raid on the village of Piramanthanaru, northern Sri Lanka, in 1985.

        But your precious UN … no where to be found. LOL

      2. Yes – now you are referring to a civil war many years later.
        Give the UN the power and they’ll sort out the problems. If they haven’t got the power they can do very little in situations like this.
        There are always mercenaries who are amoral.

      3. Prior to the Shoah, Jewish stateless refugees – stuck in a hole for over 2000 years. Then came the Balfour Declaration of 1917, and Yidden with the help of Britain got Jews out of the g’lut hole. Not completely out, mind you. The British would betray the Balfour Declaration with the Churchill White Paper of 1925, and the Chamberlain White Paper of 1939.

      4. You jabber none sense. You have not personally experienced death. I doubt you have lost a exceptionally close personal friend. You have virtually no experience in life. So pleeeaaassseee don’t preach your wisdom bull shit to me.

      5. I nursed my father and mother to their death. I have lost two very close friends and a number of other friends. My sister’s husband died. I have spoken at more funerals that you can imagine.
        I know about death.

      6. General rule: if the foundation its cracked and broken then everything built upon such a foundation … only worthy of tearing it down and starting fresh anew.

      7. Just contradicted yourself. Ya do not remember your own lies. Earlier ya declared that land nobody owns. Now you declare that Jews invaded by 5 Arab armies for declaring National Independence in accordance with your precious UN 2/3rds majority vote validating the equal rights of Jews to self determination, that these same Jews stole Arab lands!

        Scum British sub human ape.

      8. Nobody owns land. We all move through. But people lay claim to land. That is the reality. The Israelis continually illegally steal land from others – herding them into inhumane conditions. Arrogant and stupid. Two wrongs do not make a right.

I'd like to hear from you...
