Cameron, Kudos For Your Trip To Jaffna -Tamils For Obama

Tamils for Obama recently wrote a letter to UK Prime Minister David Cameron, who was in Colombo for the Commonwealth conference. We publish below the letter in full;

November 19, 2013

Rt. Hon David Cameron
10 Downing Street
London
SW1A 2AA

Re: Kudos for your trip to Jaffna

Dear Prime Minister,

You recently travelled to Sri Lanka to attend the Commonwealth conference. In Sri Lanka you went to Jaffna and met victimized Tamil inhabitants. You also presented President Rajapaksa with an ultimatum: “Sri Lanka must begin an inquiry into alleged war crimes by March or face international intervention.”

We thank and praise you for both these actions.

We realize that your time is limited. However, we would like to mention three things which we wish you had done but which you didn’t have time for.

1. You met with three TNA members, all three of whom live most or all of their time in Colombo. We regard all of them as too sympathetic to the Colombo government.  We wish you had been able to meet with elected representatives who live in and represent the northeast.

2. When you went to the Jaffna Public Library, there was a group of mothers and wives of Tamil men were taken into custody by the Sri Lankan government and never seen nor heard from again. We wish someone from the TNA had guided you to meet them and so you would have heard their complaints and grievances.

3. We also wish you had been able to visit the Tamil-inhabited eastern province and its many war victims.

It appears to us that you have taken the correct measure of the Sri Lankan government. You have seen, as others have, that Colombo creates commissions in order to distract and delay anyone, like yourself, who wants to see justice done.

We think you were right to give Mr. Rajapaksa a manly ultimatum.

Yours sincerely,

Tamils for Obama

    Wow! No wonder they are banking their Ealam hopes on Cameron.

    Look here CH4 explains how British politics function:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0E70BwA7xgU

    If LTTE Die-ass-pora pressure groups employ methods by the Israel lobby in Britan, Sri Lanka can count on serious problems in the future.

    Already the LTTE Die-ass-pora is on the same path. They use similar methods to influence British policy.

    Cameron’s Grand Standing at CHOGM and behaviour of Milliband brothers are direct results of LTTE Die-ass-pora influence on British politicians.

    Of course well supported by politics of corrupt Rajapassa clan.

    And while Sri Lanka’s lethargic Ministry of Foreign Affairs is deep asleep. Very busy appointing talentless, unpatriotic, corrupt officials to its ranks.

    Sri Lanka has a massive task ahead, if we are to keep the country united.

    Cheers!

      Don’t cry Ben hurly, u must have expect all these long time ago. Tamils struggle supported by all over the world not LTTE arm struggle. LTTE actions took Tamil struggle backwards. Now all changed after LTTE gone for good. Please don’t blame die-ass-pora, there is no die-ass-pora, all are exiles of Tamils fighting for their freedom from exiled land. Most of their heart and minds still belong to their beloved land. I cant blame them. After 2009 do u know how many Tamils abducted and murdered by Sinhala Buddhist modayas, and how many Tamil women raped and murdered by Sinhala occupying Buddhist army. Just after chogham conference 2 tamil men abducted by Sinhala Buddhist thugs army still no one knows what happened to them. Do you still believe tamils want to live under Sinhala Buddhist barbarians….over to you, by the don’t think I am die-ass-pora, but one of the tamil want to live in his land ruled by their own people.
      CHEERS.

        This is what most want..everyone will be up for a inquiry. But not the Last few months.. This war started 30 years ago.. Should not the entire period be investigated.. Which also includes Cross border assistance to Terrorist from around the world. The Networks that kept the flames of terrorism, The Fighting methods of the Terrorist and the army.. From 83-2009.. We know the last years of the war the was fought in many fronts in different areas. Yet why only focus on the last month?? After all it has to be justice over the years and not months.. And the Conduct of the INT NGO’s which made the LTTE the state and all those who opposed them criminals, They did not implement any conditions on the LTTE such as give up suicide attacks on civilians..before they met and shook their hands.. All these areas must also be looked at.

        what is a gurilla organisation it is a organisation that acts from within a civilian pouplation, you are the civilian population you cant distinguuish between the 2 thay are the same.

        This what these so called Rights groups Avoid.. why??

          Raja,

          It is the Sinhala Therawada Buddhist Racist Terrorists who ruined our country from the day we got Independence. They are a curse to our country ever since we got Independence. They are nothing but Beggars, thugs thieves and murderers.

          These mostly 70% Uneducated village Coolies don’t understand what true Governance and democracy is.

          It is they who build the hatred between all communities and MR using BBS to further bring animosity among all communities.

          Let’s see how the drama unfolds in March next year.

      Funny:

      Oh, I think it is about to wash your brains a little bit. Before MR becasme the President, where do you think your hero Gotabaya was? Or you still haven’t found out that Sarath Fonseka and Basil Rajapaksa were USA green card holders. Being stupid is one but made to look stupid by these “patriotic” guys is another. Which one are you?

    Tamil losers now find reasons not to howl and cry.

    They tried hard to stop Cameron going to SL. Now that he went they say it is good.

    What a bunch of losers.

    No wonder they are stateless parasites.

    Tamils for Obama?????????? ha…ha…

    Probably Obama may not aware who Tamils are. Increasingly, Tamil/LTTE diaspora are becoming the laughing stock of the world. What good can diaspora achieve by going after a looser, like David Camaron who is really unpopular in his own country, and who had to form a coalition government with left-wing Liberal democrats?

    BTW, Where is the b1tch Adele Ann Wilby or Adele Balasingham? in Australia? in UK? She’s now a multimillionaire for sure.

    Tamils for Obama are a bunch of illiterate losers who backed VP and have mud on their faces. On one hand they claim that the TNA leadership should not be regarded as representing Tamils as they live in Colombo and, on the other they who live in the US claim to.represent Tamils in the NP in Sri Lanka.
    You fellows need to accept defeat of your murderous, racist project. There is peace and prosperity in the island now. Be a part of the process rather than be bitter and antagonistic. Get a life!

    This is the second time I see this image of the British PM Cameron coming out of one particular derelict tin roofed house. Cameron’s controllers may well have taken him to that house to highlight the plight of the Tamils in Sri Lanka. Cameron should know that Tamils in Sri Lanka are far better off than the Tamils in India and most of them live among the Sinhalese.

    I wonder whether Cameron took trouble to check whether occupiers of that house has a toilet. I say that is because, of all the people in India, one third use roadside culverts as toilets. Is right to have a toilet a human right, Mr Cameron?

    Cameron should have taken a walk along the side alleys of commercial buildings in London where many a penniless destitute lie silently covering themselves from the cold with only layers of second hand coats and threadbare blankets. Alex Andreou reported in theguardian.com, Monday 11 November 2013 that 10% of homeless individuals like that in London are former armed forces personnel. In the past two years, in Scotland alone, more than 2,000 veterans were registered as homeless after leaving the military.

    Alex Andreou had reported that British soldiers may have won battles in Iraq and Afghanistan but many of them have lost their life battle when they were made redundant because of Mr Cameron’s government’s programme of austerity cuts. Is it a war crime to allow war veterans to be destitute, Mr Cameron?

    Cameron and his neocon buddies were behind those earlier resolutions against Sri Lanka at UNHRC. Sri Lanka has prevailed. No doubt Cameron will fail once again in his effort to meddle in the affairs of Sri Lanka just like he had failed to meddle in the war in Syria. But Cameron should take care of his own people. Otherwise unlike Rajapakse, he will soon lose elections.

    That was the time the world came to know how the IDPs live in tin thatched huts when British PM was coming out of it. The IDPs’ houses and lands were seized by the military for their own use without any compensation paid to them for the last 20 years. These IDPs are not benefitted by the expressways, hotels and banks being built all over Sri Lanka. No president or even Tamil representative bothered to visit these unfortunate people. British PM deserves praise for his bold action.

    The picture shows Cameron looking furtively to his left escaping from a Muslim home with a Muslim woman in pursuit. This tells us that he was not welcome everywhere he went. He hadn’t been advised that these were the 200,000 Muslims who had been evicted from Jaffna and northern Vavuniya by ‘Our Boys’, the Tamil Tiger terrorists, with ONLY the clothes on their backs, and who are still being resettled in their properties by the government. The crocodile tears being shed for these ex-IDP Muslims by SOME on the forum CANNOT hide the fact that they were unwanted in the North by the Tamils and they will certainly NEED protection in the foreseeable future. As at present there are still 90,000 of them alongside the Sinhala evictees who await resettlement. IT was NOT the security forces who dispossessed them of their land and wealth.

    If MR knew that DC is visiting these shackle houses, he would have sent his clean up team to White wash them and plant Flowers like what he did to Vihara Maha Devi park.

    But, Bad luck no heads of states visited those parks.
