Easter Day bomb blasts at three Sri Lankan churches and four hotels killed more than 150 people and wounded more than 500, following a lull in major attacks since the end of the civil war 10 years ago.

The explosions, some of which officials said were suicide bomb attacks, led to an immediate clampdown, with the government declaring a curfew and blocking access to most major social media and messaging sites.

What happened?

The powerful blasts - six in quick succession and then two more hours later - wrought devastation, including at the capital's well-known St Anthony's Shrine, a historic Catholic Church.

The three hotels hit in the initial attacks were the Shangri-La Colombo, Kingsbury Hotel in Colombo and the Cinnamon Grand Colombo.




"A foreign intelligence agency has reported that the NTJ (National Thowheeth Jama'ath) is planning to carry out suicide attacks targeting prominent churches as well as the Indian high commission in Colombo," the alert said.

The NTJ is a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka that was linked last year to the vandalism of Buddhist statues.

My Facebook post from a few minutes ago.









So I'm thinking, which admittedly is often a precursor to me saying or typing something that will be found offensive or in poor taste, about the different reactions and level of anguish between recent events in New Zealand and Sri Lanka.

Both events happened in houses of worship. Both claimed victims worshiping a "minority" religion for their respective counties. Most victims in both events were POCs. Sri Lanka is sitting at 4 times the death count.

The big difference is the "marketability" (I know that's a shitty word for this kind of tragedy, but the media sells stuff) of the bogeyman in these tragedies. When your selling advertising and clicks on a website, white, right wing nuts with a gun is far more "valuable" than brown, Islamo-nut with bombs, even if the latter is 4 times as deadly.

What a load of bullshit...

Typical Amerikan-centric crap talk..

The Sri Lankan bombings and attacks have been getting plenty of coverage down here..

Maybe because not everyone is as inward-focussed and insular as many Americans keep on proving themselves to be ?


Latest updates :

* Death toll has passed 290, with hundreds more injured.

* While a small domestic Islamist group remains the prime suspect, there are still other possibilities, until the perpetrators are positively identified, e.g. --
• stray ISIS recruits chased out of Syria, aiming to make more strife, and backed by a larger group like ISIS or al Qaeda;
• Tamil seperatists (mostly fundamentalist Hindus..).

Yes, that was a killer.  It was a classic case of noseeum, no harm.  Like the pilots in Viet Nam. If you don't look, or see the damage, it didn't happen.

But the actual invasion of Iraq, a whole country, under the guise of a known pretext, takes the prize.

Obviously it's getting coverage. Not near the coverage of the NZ shooting.

Even on this forum and another British forum I post on.

Wrong bogeyman.

For better TV coverage, you could try those who have reporters on the ground over there :

Australia's ABC network
The BBC
Sky TV

With Sri Lanka being part of the (former) 'British Commonwealth' it's not unexpected that other Commonwealth countries might pay more attention to this story, in comparison to the more insular and inward-gazing Americas (both North and South continents..).

And they play cricket in Sri Lanka --  another link to Oz, NZ, Britain, India, Pakistan, etc  --  maybe Texas should invite the Sri Lankan national team to be the first to play in those new stadiums when they open them..

Broaden a few Americans' view of the world...

Idea

You really are one ignorant fuckwit, smelly'neo-nazi'bum...

For 'Desert Storm' alone (1990/'91, under the first Prez Bush..) :

10 --> 12,000 Iraqi soldiers,
Over 3,000 Kuwaiti and Iraqi civilians,
Estimated up to 100,000 casualties after, from health/sanitation problems, hunger, injuries..

Allied casualties --  less than 400.

Mad

I'm bouncing this Smelly post as well, to remind everyone of the kind of ramped_up racist-inspired filth that the disgusting nasty bastard has been posting this week...

Note :

I'm from a Catholic family.
My mother, aunties and some cousins are "practising" Catholics.

Those churches bombed in Sri Lanka are mostly Catholic; as were the majority of victims..
There are significant Sri Lankan communities here in Oz.

As well as the sheer humanity of all these kind of tragedies...

And that snivelling little faux--"Christian" bastard coward Smelly' has the hide to attack me with his rabid bigotted filth in this post above..

And to think a couple of far right whingers on here still defend his right to post his crap.
