Mar 27th 2007 2:36PM Interesting that Sri Lanka is on the list. The war is limited to the North and the East of the country. Yes there are random acts of terrorism in the South such as the recent much hyped airport attack...but on those grounds LA should be up there as well, what with all the gang warfare.
Mar 27th 2007 2:35PM Oh please, M.I.A singing about the 'liberation struggle' (one in which the liberators have killed more moderate Tamils than the State ever has)...singing about throwing a pipe bomb and using LTTE imagery in her videos is just a cheap attempt at getting 'street cred' and sell more records. At a time when moderates in Sri Lanka on both sides should stand up and be taken note of its depressing to think that extremism has found a 'pop' mascot.
Tamil and English are also official languages, sadly the former is not awarded its due status institutionally and the latter is not widespread enough.
