Damned If You Do, Damned If You Don’t: International Edition

Sri Lankans hold placards showing US President Barack Obama during a protest led by National Freedom Front outside the United Nations office in Colombo on March 24, 2011 against the western allies airstrikes on Libya. Sri Lanka's foreign minister Gamini Lakshman Peiris told parliament on March 23, 2011, that the island does not approve or encourage the air strike on Libya. Coalition forces are acting under UN Security Council Resolution 1973 authorising "all necessary means" to protect civilians fighting to topple Kadhafi, including enforcing a no-fly zone.

Sri Lankans demonstrated outside of the United Nations office in Colombo today against the United States' involvement in Libya. In addition to burning an effigy of President Obama and beating it with shoes, they carried signs such as the one shown here — that's a piece of chicken Obama is ruthlessly tearing apart — as well as others with messages like "Stop Killing Innocent Libyans." We were hoping for something more along the lines of "thank you," but okay.
