Efforts to Globalize Truth of Sri Lanka Conflict

Maya has been steady trying to raise awareness about the reality of the conflict in Sri Lanka. That it was more an attack on innocent civilians than it is a ploy to take down the Tamil Tiger movement who sought to establish their own independent state. She's asked Oprah to do something about having talks with authoritarian figures whom she obviously has direct connections to Michelle Obama ---> President Obama.

M.I.A. urging Oprah for help.

What can really be done about War especially in cases where the cause and proliferation of conflict is so complex and difficult to resolve.

M.I.A. offering Bill Maher some correction in a recent interview.

Genocides hardly go unnoticed but hardly anything is ever done by the international community. Too busy with their own affairs. Even their ploy to bring aid to foreign countries is just a way of avoiding madrass education that breeds terrorist behaviour.

If you're like me and haven't been 100% clued up on this conflict. Here's some help for you: wikipedia article

The media claims that the war has ended with the killing of Velupillai Prabhakaran - the head of the Tamil Tiger movement. Is it official? Time will tell.

Kudos to Maya for having a social concern and responsibility for a mother nation.
