I previously posted on the United States summoning Sri Lanka’s green-card holding army chief for a briefing.  The BBC has an article out about how Sri Lanka’s opposition parties are trying to recruit the general to run for President.  A political campaign between the General and the President who destroyed the LTTE could turn into an exercise in chest thumping nationalism that would do little to solve Sri Lanka’s festering minority problem and could keep its Tamils in their internment camps even longer.

UPDATE: With the general resigning early it looks like a political campaign is in the offing.
