UK Arms trade blacklists Sri Lanka then sells it arms

Uk selling Arms to Sri Lanka - daily alternative news

Britain has raised eyebrows selling millions of pounds of weapons to Sri Lanka over the past year while British Foreign Office blacklists Colombo as a human rights abuser. – daily alternative news

Sri Lanka has received a range of weapons including assault rifles, shotguns and ammunitions under the British government licenses for arms exports.

The figures obtained from the government’s own database for strategic exports control by the Campaign Against Arms Trade (CAAT) show sales worth more than £3 million in 2012.

This comes as the British Foreign Office lists Sri Lanka as a “country of concern” for its alleged treatment of Tamil minority and crackdown on armed separatists.

The Foreign Office said in December 2012 that they consider the human rights situation in Sri Lanka in the three months to December as deteriorating.

Britain frowned on Sri Lanka in 2009 for its war on the Tamil Tiger separatists that left an estimated 60,000 to 100,000 people killed.

British rights groups including Human Rights Watch, Freedom from Torture and Tamils Against Genocide claim they have evidence of at least 40 cases where Tamils who returned to their home country from European nations faced torture by Sri Lankan authorities.

Kuwait to Pass Law to “DNA Tag” Everyone Like Cattle, Including All Tourists

In the first law of its kind anywhere in the world, Kuwait has decided it will not only “DNA tag” everyone presently in the country as part of a new “integrated security database,” but all tourists will be required to submit a DNA test before they can even enter the country.

Facilities for blood and saliva collection will be set up at the Kuwait International Airport, and there will be “consequences of rejecting” these procedures which the Kuwaiti government says it is putting in place in order to track everyone just in case someone commits a crime.

While it sounds like an Orwellian nightmare, the reality is this is slowly creeping up on us everywhere. Central banks are going to start requiring biometrics for identification, for your security they say. Japan has already announced that all tourists will be required to use their fingerprints as currency while in the country. India has forced biometric IDs on its entire population. In fact, the United Nations is pushing for universal biometric ID cards for every single man, woman, and child on the planet by 2030.
