Suicide attacks? That's either the Tamils, although their last suicide attack was in 2009, or its Muslims.

Suicide blasts don't sound like Buddhist MO.

time others "returned the favour", and wiped out the bomber's places of worship en masse
You folks like to cause genocide?

In the civilised world people are tried and sentenced. We don't kill every person of a certain ethnicity.

Trump says 138 million dead View attachment 648362
Stop spreading fake news, please. Google this: "heartfelt condolences from the people of the united states to the people of Sri Lanka on the horrible". It's 2019 you should know by now not to trust screenshots of posts...

Edit: Ok thanks for the info Surface. Haha yeah he loves to overexaggerate everything, maybe his predictive text learned to auto-include words like great, millions, billions and China ;p

In expressing his condolences to those impacted by the Sri Lanka blasts, President Donald Trump initially claimed incorrectly that millions had died in the South Asia country on Easter Sunday.

At least 138 people were killed in what appears to be coordinated attacks as the death toll is expected to increase, according to multiple media reports. Hundreds were wounded in a series of explosions that targeted churches and hotels frequented by tourists around the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo, the Associated Press and CNN report.

Trump offered support for the blasts in the early morning tweet. "Heartfelt condolences from the people of the United States to the people of Sri Lanka on the horrible terrorist attacks on churches and hotels that have killed at least 138 million people and badly injured 600 more. We stand ready to help," the president said.

The president deleted the original tweet and added a corrected version with the nearly 140 people dead figure in the blasts.
