Buddhist extremism on the rise!

Oh dear.

Is this a new trend or just something I am becoming more aware of?

There was a protest march in Colombo against Bhuddist extremism!

Sri Lanka is struggling to come to terms with it's genocidal but decisive war against the Tamils.

Don't know if anyone is aware how this war was fought and won but basically the Tamils were a terrorist minority which the government tried to constrain but had limited resources and funds to oppose them. The Tamils occupied a small part of the North and most of the East Coast of the Island. but only stretching inland for a couple of miles.  They wanted recognition of a Tamil state in Sri Lanka.

The rest of Sri Lanka did not want this!

The Tamils engaged in a war, using bombs and guns to try and influence the government.

A personal aside! Twice in the 90's I flew into Colombo to find myself in the middle of a fire fight with terrorists! The first time they had tried to blow up Bandaranaike airport but luckily only the detonators went of in a vehicle packed with over a ton of explosives. The next time they had managed to blow up some oil and gas terminals  and were engaged in a firefight with government forces.

Then there was a Tsunami! Lo and there were untold millions in world aid!

This was converted to military funding / use and within 18 months the Tamils were no more!

This has been controversial!

I'm guessing that the majority of the Sri Lankan armed forces are Bhuddists!

Peace.
