    If Obhrai’s intention was to pay tribute to the Tamil rebels (his own government categorized LTTE as terrorist) as Guardian says, that means Canada has scant regard for those who died at the hands of LTTE during the 33 year war.

    A.T. Duraiyappah, SLFP Mayor of Jaffna was the first victim of the so- called rebels (terrorists) on 27.7.75. Then rebels (terrorists) killed A.Thiagarajah, ACTC (Tamil Party) M.P. for Vaddukoddai on 24.4.81 because he joined the UNP. Then K.T.Pulendran, UNP organiser for
    Vavuniya was killed on 19.1.83. Then A.J.Rajasooriar, UNP Organiser for Jaffna on 12.8.83. Then, Mala Ramachandran, UNP MMC for Batticaloa on 1.9.83, Then Gnanachandiram, Ex District Judge Point Pedro and Government Agent Mullaitivu killed on 14.2.85.

    Mind you the entire list is too long to list here. But for one thing all those victims were Tamil. They were killed for one reason. Because they didn’t fall in line with LTTE ideology. Somehow LTTE managed promote racism to such an extent that today most Tamils in the north have become jingoists.

    British delegation including this minister and his Prime Minister who raised human rights concerns on the island never worried about those killings. They have their ulterior motives. They wanted to divide this country and have their bases here.

      Adey Bando, you forgot to add to your list the name of that afable TNA MP Raviraj Nadaraja and MP Mahesan who were killed in the heart of the HSZ in Colombo and many more. Are you suffering from selective amnesia?

          Saul,

          Majority of those thousands were killed by Gota who was serving in the army at that time and he gave the list of names of those thus killed to MARA to raise the issue at UN! Matale mass grave is a living example of this fact. The Rajapakshas are a herd of killers of the ilk of Hitler!

        It appears that Banda has the same memory lost but not worser than you.

        Did you see what Mt.Abbott (PM -Aus)offer to HE President (SL)? No more LTTE cheats will be catching up boats to go from the back door to Aussie Land. Those so-called refugee parasites will not be there to be burdened to Aussie tax payers any more.

      You have displayed the fact that you are a fool. No country wants to have bases here. All they want is democracy & freedom of the press in SL. They also want an independent inquiry into the alleged war crimes which is fair enough. Alleged perpetrators of crimes cannot have their own inquiries- full stop.

      Banda all these killings were done by Sinhalese thugs but they blame it on Tamils. See what happened to Kadirgamar. They finished him off and blamed it on you know who.

      Banda:

      How come you conveniently forgot the torture and murder and the disappearance of more than 70,000 Sinhalese during the 70s? Surely you are not suggesting that they were murdered by the LTTE? Even as you write, we have made our position clear, go ahead and try EVERYONE who have allegedly committed war crimes, including the LTTE. And instead of telling us stories, the regime has in its custody Karuna (who murdered 600 policemen), KP and Pillayan. Instead of knocking us, you go and knock your head with the regime, ask them the very questions you are asking us. Isn’t that a good point to start with? Believe me, we will extend our wholehearted support to you. Just because the three are Tamils, we are not blinded by the race factor. Go ahead, try them and if proven guilty, hang them high. So, what are you waiting for?

      There is nothing better for SL than Tamils killing Tamils.

      Bring back that golden era.

      Actually LTTE must be respected for killing, etc. more Tamils than the army and IPKF.

    “The result, said staff speaking anonymously, was a “campaign of intimidation and propaganda in local newspapers”. Headlines claimed that “Britain flayed Sri Lanka” and that the meeting had been “subverted”. “Staff were shouted at, trailed by police. We were blocked from doing our job. After losing control it was the last straw,” said a Colombo-based source.”

    Gotas Pig Shit treatment no doubt. “The people, hate you, they will kill you!”. Who are the people, other than his golayas.

      Tamils are cursed.

      Look how Tamils are getting killed by the boat people. Now 2 warships too!!

      Boat people take Tamils to mid sea and kill them without a trace!

      If 100 Tamil men can be killed a week 5,200 Tamil men will die. Tamil population growth rate will be negative and Muslims will be the largest minority.

    The people in Srilanka don’t know the difference between a terroriost organisation and the elected government.

    If a elected government behave like a terroriost organisation the Internatonal community will get involved to fix them.

    Hope you guys will get it

            You are totally wrong. This Jim Nutty’s father could not wear condoms because he did not possess an organ to put it on. Noting this fact an astray dog offered its service to his mom. I know this fact well because I have learned the language dogs use which this Nutty uses!

        If a real probe is commenced on Lakshman Kadirgama’s assasination, it will not point at the LTTE as alleged but completely in a different direction and none other than at MR, who was threatened if LK was appointed as PM by CBK and blocked MR’s plan of succession.

          Thank you Gamini! There are many similar cases, if investigated properly, will end up at the very top!! That is why none of the cases are investigated. Otherwise why should “someone” gets agitated at the mention of the word “investigation”

    All ye people,

    The war is over. Crimes were committed. No point dragging the fight further. Give peace a chance.

    All politicians are reprehensible. So are we, the citizens. We allowed biases based on cast, creed, race, language and religion, to thrive. We taught our children that our race was superior and that our religion is the right one. And we all reaped the harvest of horror.

    The politicians are incapable of not playing the race card. They will succumb to the lowest common denominator to gain the slightest popularity.

    It is left for the common man to rise above the machinations of the politicians. Time we mended our wrong ways. Stop making racial slurs. Stop pushing the communities further apart. Try finding a common ground. Try not to provoke or belittle. Many people died during the war, Tamils, Muslims and Sinhalese. Have some sympathy for those who still grieve.
