Sri Lanka and "In Praise of Warlords"
This article from Dayan Jayatilleka in the Asian Tribune is quite interesting for demonstrating the point I made earlier today about the spread of English and the internet: it places the Sri Lankan conflict in the context of what was done in Russia and then applies the analysis given by Alexis Debat and John Hulsman in the summer issue to a way forward.
I realize that for some this source is not an objective one (see the entry for "Asian Tribune"); my point in posting is not to become involved in assessing its objectivity but more to make the point about how information circulates.
They reprinted the English text and have a French commentary around it.
