Did The US And IC Want To Save The LTTE? What Stuff And Nonsense !

By Uvindu Kurukulasuriya

“Experience in many civil conflicts around the world has shown that countries that don’t take adequate measures to address reconciliation and accountability frequently experience a regeneration of the insurgency that they faced. We could see very much that similar situation in Sri Lanka.” Thus spake President Barack Obama’s point man for South Asia, Robert Blake, the other day in an interview with the Associated Press. If the situation is so bad in Sri Lanka as Blake claims, why on earth has the US called for the withdrawal of military from the former war zone? Is it to facilitate the ‘regeneration of the insurgency’?

The above is quoted from the Editorial in The Island newspaper of March 15 called “Blake’s Doublespeak”.

It is nothing but a part of an ongoing hate campaign against the US and the international community. The Government of Sri Lanka and a Sri Lankan nationalist press has been misleading the public for ages.  But the Island editor or anyone who really wants to understand what went on behind closed doors must read the leaked US diplomatic cables. If you read them you can understand what the US and the international community really thought and did. None of the cables suggest that they helped the LTTE.

I would like to look at WikiLeaks cables as a much more potent challenge to powers that be as well as to journalists. As Charlie Becket, wrote in his book “WikiLeaks – News in the Networked Era”, our understanding of the nature of war and diplomacy has been enhanced. Journalism’s role as the provider of the first draft of history has deepened. So friends, let us read some cables that Blake wrote.

Robert Blake, Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia – AP Photo

Just one month before the end of the bloody war, on April 17, 2009, Blake wrote; “Ambassador warned the Minister that if the government pursued a military option without first allowing high-level diplomacy a chance, Sri Lanka could expect escalating international criticism and actions to demonstrate the international community’s concern. The Ambassador said such actions could include suspension of aid to Sri Lanka, closer scrutiny of IMF lending, possible war crimes investigations, and perhaps other actions. EU Head of Mission Savage echoed the Ambassador’s comments, noting the importance of Sri Lanka protecting civilians and giving the LTTE an opportunity to surrender. He said the loss of civilian lives from ongoing military operations would be a humanitarian and public relations disaster for Sri Lanka ‘which would snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.’ Indian High Commissioner Prasad agreed and referred to a very tough statement the Indian Foreign Ministry had issued earlier in the day. He said there is ‘extreme concern’ in India about civilian casualties. India did not see why further military action was necessary at this time and supports a humanitarian pause.”

“The Foreign Minister assured Prasad that Sri Lanka is sensitive to Indian and other concerns, but repeated that a pause would only give oxygen to the LTTE. He said Sri Lanka needed the help of the Tamil Diaspora to persuade the LTTE to release its civilians. Ambassador briefed the minister on the results of the meeting Assistant Secretary Boucher had hosted with American Diaspora representatives. He explained that the Diaspora had rejected U.S. calls for them to urge the release of civilians.”

“The President voiced strong opposition to a possible UN role in negotiating a humanitarian pause or a surrender by the LTTE, asking, ‘how can the UN consider having contact with a terrorist organization?’ He categorically ruled out the possibility of the UN entering into negotiations directly with Prabhakaran.”

Mahinda Chinthanaya and the LTTE

Now friends, when the President asked that question; ‘how can the UN consider having contact with a terrorist organization?’ he himself forgot his own promises to the citizens of Sri Lanka. Read the 2005 election manifesto in which he says; “In the course of the consultative process, I shall initiate direct talks with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam. I also intend to meet their leader and other representatives for such discussions. At such talks, I shall present the consensus reached to the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam.”

Going back to the cables, Blake wrote in the same cable; “The President’s hard line position is likely motivated in part by his need to play to his southern Sinhala political base in the elections for the Western Provincial Council that will take place later this month.”

“In the meantime, the international community must continue to pressure the GOSL to agree to a pause and cease military actions to allow diplomacy to work. It is also important that no public mention be made of a possible UN effort to release civilians, lest Sinhala nationalists seek to capitalize on the upcoming elections to force the GOSL to back down from even the limited concessions they have made.”

Diplomatic Efforts to Evacuate Civilians

In another cable on March 19, 2009, Blake wrote; “The USG in Colombo and Washington has been engaged in intensive efforts to protect the estimated 120-150,000 civilians presently trapped in the ‘safe-zone’ in northern Sri Lanka. We have pursued several tracks. First, we and other Co-Chair countries have called on the LTTE immediately to allow civilians freedom of movement.

The LTTE has not done so, instead it has shot civilians who have tried to escape, and engaged in forcible recruitment of progressively younger and older civilians to augment its diminishing cadre, now estimated by the government at 400-500. There is also growing evidence of civilian confrontations with the LTTE in the safe zone. Publicly the LTTE continues to insist that it is not safe for the civilians to be evacuated to ‘concentration camps’ in Vavuniya. UN U/SYG Holmes in his recent report to the UN Security Council following his visit to Sri Lanka rebutted the LTTE’s claim and stated that basic needs are being met, although clearly more needs to be done on several fronts (for example, reduce overcrowding and improve sanitation).”

“While we continue pressure on the LTTE, the U.S. and others have pressed the government not to respond to LTTE shelling emanating from the safe zone. Despite repeated assurances that it would not use heavy weapons or shell the safe zone, Sri Lankan Army continues to respond to LTTE shelling on almost a daily basis and has killed hundreds of civilians just in the last week. UN High Commissioner for Human Rights issued a public statement on March 13 that more than 2800 civilians have been killed just since January 20. Lastly, we and others continue to press the government to allow in food and medicine for the civilians, who are completely dependent on such assistance. The government has done a much better job recently of allowing food in, but the Ministry of Defense continues to block all medical shipments leading to very high rates of mortality for civilians wounded by shelling.”

“A decision by the government to forcibly enter the safe zone to kill or capture the remaining LTTE cadres would have disastrous humanitarian consequences. Credible reporting suggests that the LTTE has prepared trenches and bunkers in the safe zone in anticipation of a long siege. Unless significant numbers of civilians can escape or be evacuated, thousands, or even tens of thousands, of civilians could be killed if the GSL tries to enter the safe zone forcibly.”

“In a meeting with the Foreign Minister on March 18, Ambassador expressed appreciation for the Defense Secretary’s repeated assurances that the GSL would not enter the safe zone forcibly. Nonetheless, the Ambassador noted that he was hearing credible reports that many in the military and elsewhere favor entering the safe zone and finishing off the conflict. The Ambassador warned the Minister that Sri Lanka needed to understand that the deaths of thousands or even tens of thousands of civilians from such an action would cause an international outcry, likely subject the GSL to war crime charges, and almost certainly undermine public support in the U.S. and other donor countries for future reconstruction efforts in the north. The Minister acknowledged these realities and reassured the Ambassador that the GSL has no intention of entering the safe zone forcibly.”

“The Government of Norway has been engaged in quiet efforts to persuade the LTTE to allow civilians in the safe zone to leave. (Note: Norwegian efforts must be strictly protected and not referred to either publicly or privately by USG officials with third country nationals.) The LTTE has responded to Norwegian overtures by insisting there should be a cease-fire and political negotiations to resolve the conflict. The LTTE has also raised numerous procedural and other questions about how the UN and ICRC might evacuate civilians, the treatment they would be subjected to in the camps in Vavuniya, and GSL plans to resettle them. The Norwegians have made clear that the time for a cease-fire to pursue political negotiations is now passed; they are only responding to LTTE questions regarding the treatment of civilians once they leave the North. These talks are unlikely to reach a satisfactory conclusion before mid-April. In addition, despite Norway’s good faith efforts, a recent leak to a nationalist newspaper suggests the Government is wary of Norway’s work in this matter and may be preparing the ground to undercut Norway.”

Blake Suggested a Plan

“It is clear, then, that the international community needs a plan now to evacuate as many of the civilians as possible. Mission recommends that Washington and USUN consider the following approach. The USG should ask the UN Secretary General to issue a public statement calling on both sides to allow a humanitarian pause in fighting for civilians who want to leave. The LTTE maintains the fiction that civilians do not want to leave. As noted above, all evidence points to the contrary. The UN needs to call the LTTE’s bluff. The SYG could reassure civilians they will be well treated, recalling Holmes, late February statement to the UN Security Council. To give added credibility to his assurances, the UN should coordinate in advance with the GSL so the SYG can announce that the GSL has invited UN Special Rapporteur for IDP Issues Walter Kaelin to work with GSL to resolve remaining issues in the camps. It is important the initiative be cast as a GSL proposal given the GSL’s stiff-arming of Special Envoys proposed by the UK and others. Kaelin already has extensive experience in Sri Lanka and would be well suited to this job.”

“The obvious challenge is to get the LTTE’s agreement to this plan. The ICRC confirmed to Embassy Colombo that their staff in the safe zone could develop a mechanism to determine which of the civilians want to leave. If the LTTE refuses to cooperate, the UN must then be prepared to say so publicly. Such an announcement would likely cause the LTTE significant problems with the Tamil Diaspora, who have supported the LTTE thus far and whom the LTTE is counting on to help finance the reconstitution of the LTTE once fighting is over in the North. The Diaspora remains very concerned about the plight of the civilians and would likely help the UN pressure the LTTE to allow those civilians to leave who want to. (Septel will offer thoughts on ways the USG can do more to reach out to the Tamil Diaspora in the U.S. both to respond to their mail campaigns and engage them directly.) Ambassador has discussed the outlines of this proposal with the UN, ICRC and Sri Lanka’s Foreign Minister, all of whom believe it is worth trying. It is clear the LTTE will not let all of the civilians go because the civilians serve as human shields and as a pool for conscription. But even if we can evacuate two-thirds of the civilians, that would mark significant progress.”

Does all this sound as if the US and the international community wanted to save the LTTE? What stuff and nonsense.

    Don’t be so naive Uvindu, it’s embarrassing.

    I doubt that the US and the Intl. Community (minus pro-LTTE Tamil Diaspora members) were trying to save the the LTTE but it was ludicrous of them to ask the GoSL to ‘first allow high-level diplomacy a chance’. Generations of GoSL administrations have given ‘high-level diplomacy a chance’ to bear no fruit. Too many chances many might even say.

    It is SUPREMELY important to remember one thing. The United States and it’s foreign missions do not have the best interests of any country but THEMSELVES. They play their cards extremely well in the global arena, acting always as the do-gooder, making easier-said-than-done suggestions and we-are-the-world’s-moral-authority criticisms and accusations. When push comes to shove, if the US were a third world country and they were in a similar situation to the GoSL, it’s safe to say they would behave almost identically if not with a more ‘Western’ brand of grace. Suggesting the GoSL to ‘allow high-level diplomacy’ while on the cusp of ENDING a gruesome and bloody 30-yr war (that would only gone on for years to come had there been pause) is a shameful act of bigotry.

    No country in the world should take counsel from the United States as they have perpetrated the world’s worst crimes against humanity. What makes them worse than anything is their routine of committing these atrocities under secrecy and the veil of spin while portraying themselves as a perfect nation and scolding the rest of the world.

    If an alcoholic were at a bar and they scolded and harassed someone about having a drink, what would you think? If I were that person, I’d tell that alcoholic to ‘..kindly f*ck off and tend to his own problems’.

    Uvindu is singing the same old tune.That is in trying desperately to promote that phony US resolution.He is a paid so called journalist in the caliber of Paki,Jehan,Sunanda,Nimalka,Sunila.I am surprised if Uvindu had not already joined that set of con men and con women in Geneva.These fraudsters pretend that their hearts are bleeding for the Tamils.The more their hearts bleed,the more dough they get.Great occupation.These fraudsters are having a ball in Geneva at the expense of innocent Tamils.Uvindu and co are trying in vain to promote a loss cause.Why waste your time?Instead the US the world’s only policeman can easily get through that phony resolution and perform an Iraqi type trick.When it’s so easy why take the trouble in explaining the virtues of a damned resolution.Uvindu,you can’t market this bogus US resolution.Forget Rajapakse.99% of Srilankans don’t believe the bonafides of the US.Uvindu claims that he is a journalist.Other than the phony US resolution don’t you have anything else to talk about?For instance an innocent Srilankan Muslim girl Rizana is languishing in a filthy Saudi jail awaiting execution after a Kangaroo style Saudi court trial.But these bogus so called human rights journalists don’t talk about such issues.Why?Because there is no money in it.These fellows are only interested in fattening their bank accounts.These are hired hoodlums pretending to be journalists.Their only concern is $$$$.Not worth spending time on a bunch of phonies.

      What you have to say speaks loudly enough of who you are!

      The only question is what currency you are being paid in because your masters are lining their pockets with a variety of foreign currencies and I am sure that, as a good employee, you’d make sure that you would not be paid in SLR which are dropping so fast, thanks to your masters, it makes one dizzy!

      I think Dr. Brian Senewiratne’s reply to you may help to resolve your problems Max. Hope you read it;
      https://www.colombotelegraph.com/index.php/un-human-rights-council-meeting-another-farce/
      Thank you Max Silva for what you write about me. Let me reply using the Queens English and nor get in the gutter of abusive language tou use.

      “CT have you gone nuts to post such a long long piece?” Colombo Telegraph does not need to get your permission to publish any article – long or short, shit or not.

      “of shit” Well, respond to it sentence by sentence and prove that what has been written is excreta

      “written by a nut?” That is an your opinin which, of course, you are entiled to,to express

      “Who is this Dr Brian character?” i can clarify this. Qualified in Cambridge and London (paid for by parents). Rose up the medical laddere in the UK. Voluntarily returend to Sri Lanka at the pricely salary Rs 9,500 a YEAR as Senior Lecturer on Medicine and later Clinical Professor of Medicne University of Pradeniya. Emigrated to Australia when told that Sri Lanka did not need a ‘troublemaker” (ne who asked the hard questions)and a “”Black Engishman” as Professor of Medicine because I refused to teach Medicine in Sinhalese since I felt is would train substadard doctors. Took up a post as Associate Professor of Medicine Unoversity of Queensland, and Senior Specialist Physician, and Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine, Princess Alexandra Hospital, Brisbane,

      “Hope the bugger” That is defamation unless you can prove it.

      ” is not a quack”. There is no evidence that i am as shown by a very busy Medical practice in Brisbane.

      ” .This jerk ” . The Oxford dictionary and Medical textbooks descibe his as involuntay spasmodic moevements which i do not have.

      “must have definitely got quite a lot of money” No i don’t which is why i am still working at 80. if you mean writing what i do for payment, i earn enough money in Medicine to survive. i do not need to write (crap or otherwise) to do so.

      ” for writing this sort of crap” It does not need money to write anything, crap or not. All you need is committment and resolve. if you mean payment, i have already answered this.

      ” Don’t have the time to go through this type of shit” i am not sure how how it is ‘shit’ if you have not read it..

      “.Better admit this old bag to Angoda mental hospital”. Not possible because Angoda is in Sri Lanka. in any case, the decision to admit a patient to a hospital is a MEDCAL decision whichyou are not qualified to make.

      “Make sure the bugger” Defamation again.

      ” is given tons of blank paper and dozens of pens” I don’t neediven these,. I can buy them (and I do) = they are readily availabel and quite cheap.

      Any more questions? If there are, try and stick to standard English avoiding abusive language

      In conclusion, I thank CT for publishing this abuse – which i have to cope with daily from true Sinhalese patriots struggling to defend the indefensible and keeping me awake night after night with abusive phone calls. Why do Sinhales have to get into abusive language? I really do not know. But it does not upset me. I reply in non-abusive language rather than put the phone down. It gives me great pleasure to reply clamly and poni by point at abuse.

      Its only when they get into defamation, that I act eg when I am called a “Mother F….g Tamil Tiger Prick” that i get excited. Even then, I point out that what is being caimed is anatomically impossible. some of these patriotic Sinhalese are quite intersting – to say the least.
      .
      It is inly when tey treaten me that i inform the Police because that is felony – which ie=enbles legal action to be taken

        Hi Janadari from Canada,
        It seems that you are a spokesperson for Doc Brian.In that case will you be kind enough to clarify something for me?Today being a Sunday i took time off to go through Doc Brian’s drab something something,though i fell asleep a couple of times midway.I find that the Doc had been loitering in the corridors of HRC in Geneva.The way i understand is that he had been sneaking here and there.I got the feeling that the Doc had tried to gatecrash into a GOSL organized star class cocktail party and he had been caught red handed thus showing his anger.
        Oh!by the way Janadari hows life in Canada with those Tamil Tiger terrorists roaming about?I am sure that you been an admirer of the terrorists have no problem!

    Okay LTTE was a ruthless terrorist organization wiped out now, Victory , Glory fame should be divided with Sarath Fonseka & the JVP who pushed the reluctant Mahinda Rajapaksa to war when he was sending delegation after delegation to Oslo & Geneva after the assassination of Lakshman Kadirgamar but Rajapaksa Bros grabbed the war victory to themselves through the State media to gain political advantage for his 2hd term, vilifying the Army commander when he contested for the presidency, later jailed him with fabricated charges mind you SF is singhala Bhuddhist almost died for the country, during the contest for presidency M.R intimidated , harassed , assaulted, killed the opponents backers , every body knows it was not a free & fair election in history of SriLanka . State Media is still used to vilify his opponent & critics with fabricated lies, we should not forget the entire assets & money of LTTE came under the disposal of MR upto now nothing is revealed including overseas money through KP, his election promise of 2500/= salary increment for Govt servants & his Chintanaya never implemented , right thinking honest citizens cannot condone this.
    As soon as the war ended all world leaders David Milliband, Kouchner, Ban-Ki-Moon, Robert Blake visited SriLanka & met MR , had discussions’ for a speedy reconciliation process which MR promised & agreed. Many clandestine understanding reached with Ban-Ki-Moon for his re-election in United Nations depriving our very own chances for Jayantha Dhanapala. All politicians have hidden political agendas for their survival, its & exclusive rich club, our MR President, & Ranil Wickramasinghe are members in that club, all bogus patriots.
    Whenever people of Srilanka begin a protest march against this regime, for increase in cost of living or a General strike for salary increase his friend Ban in UN will forward something on an agreed date with MR , to divert the attention of us ( we the foolish cattle’s ) change the protest march in his favor. Thus we are digging our own grave for a prolonged dictatorship, this human rights issue is a gimmick to appease ones own agenda MR will never be prosecuted for war crimes If so( Many in line for prosecution such as George Bush, Dick Chenney, Donald Rumsfeld, Tony Blair) this Geneva issue is only to please the LTTE lobby, it is only the LLRC that is insisted by international community for which MR is reluctant as it is & obstacle for his dictatorship & 3rd term.
    If MR is so patriotic why he gave a free reign to USAID in North/East including to direct & advice Pradeshiya Sabahas, USAID is a covert organization affiliated to CIA, American South East Asian Commander admitted their special forces are stationed in India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, & Sri-Lanka, they have a chain of satellite eavesdropping equipment in Srilanka to spy on other countries, US embassy has kept all the Media men under their payroll nobody dig into their role , Srilanka has a security cooperation treaty with USA signed by MR, this was highlighted by the JVP recently when Wimal Weerawanse started his anti American rhetoric. Within days a high ranking USAID officials visited the JVP office (I am sure assured a donation to the party to keep their mouth shut) they know Wimal plays to the gallery could be controlled via MR.
    Track record of MR need to be scrutinized by us otherwise we the middle class & poor people will feel the brunt, never in history of lanka MR regime have messed up the following Depts Education,( A/level results & University), Health , Petroleum,MihinAir, SriLankan Airlines, Hambantota Harbour, Hedging deal etc, They disrespected the Mahanayake when he objected the Kandy motor racing several times they have done that on many aspects. Are we going to allow this to continue, recently white van abduction caught red handed by his own people who voted for him what did they do, all of them were serving Army officers Gota released them fabricating lies, The entire stockmarket is pumped on drug barons money , Drug business is unofficially licensed to their party henchmen’s. Patriotism should come within ourselves , can our people Boycott US products, will they refrain going to those countries, If a US ship dock into our harbor & announce that five thousand families will be granted free US citizenship how will our bogus patriots act , the queue will be out of control with hundreds of thousands who will lurch their motherland for greener pastures whom the govt henchmen & lackeys are fooling.

    Anti Boru,that’s a hell of a name.Those NGO jerks wouldn’t like it because honesty and truth is their monopoly.My friend you suggest that i am being paid by the government.If money is my priority then i would be blazing in five star comfort with those phony characters in Geneva.Most of these NGO jerks were former communists who were jealous of others.Thanks to free education they are what they are.Mind you i don’t owe anything to Srilanka ,i have never been a recipient of free education.Are you trying to tell me that the government is paying me to make the occasional comment on this website?I wish they pay me for replying to a bunch of phony characters here.Anti Boru will you be kind enough to get those government fellows to pay me for what i am doing?I will gladly accept.If it’s all right for those phony NGO characters to receive money in order to destroy their motherland,i see no reason why i shouldn’t accept money to protect my country from a band of fraudsters.Have i made myself loud and clear?Though i am not paid,i would gladly accept any payments for my services to my motherland.Now you’d better ask this Uvindu character and the rest including Paki,Jehan,Sunanda,Nimalka,Sunila whether they are being paid and by whom.Pl you’d better ask them and get back to me.These fellows were carrying the hammer and sickle in the good old days when they were broke shouting slogans against the USA.But now with money pouring in they have become the darlings of the Americans.Can’t expect anything else from these mercenaries.
    Jim Hardy,your comment is quite in order.

    Irrespective of what Uvindu may believe and no matter how beholden he is to Blake, Blake did not have the best interest of Sri Lanka at heart and the US rarely does about any other country other than it’s own.

    No one remembers a UN Under secretary being at the ready when Muammar Gadaffi or Osama Bin Laden were murdered (and we are not talking about a Final War here, in one’s own country) to intervene and change course. Why? Where was the UN then and where was Blake then. Don’t forget the US & UK Embassies, USA and UN were ready at a phone call from line-towing journalists, of which I certainly hope you are not one, to take Prabhakaran to safety. Is it because they loved Prabhakaran? No. Its all about keeping the region in turmoil and maintaining the balance of power.

    I may not be aware of it but Uvindu,, as the foghorn for South Asia, has Blake had similar plans of safety for countless Afghani and Pakistani civilians caught in between fighting in that American misadventure which they unceremoniously lump up as collateral damage? Just wondering because I dont know.

    “Ambassador warned the Minister that if the government pursued a military option without first allowing high-level diplomacy a chance, Sri Lanka could expect escalating international criticism and actions to demonstrate the international community’s concern. The Ambassador said such actions could include suspension of aid to Sri Lanka, closer scrutiny of IMF lending, possible war crimes investigations, and perhaps other actions. EU Head of Mission Savage echoed the Ambassador’s comments, noting the importance of Sri Lanka protecting civilians and giving the LTTE an opportunity to surrender. He said the loss of civilian lives from ongoing military operations would be a humanitarian and public relations disaster for Sri Lanka ‘which would snatch defeat from the jaws of victory”
    This is the threat Sri Lanka had to ignore to achieve what we achieved.
    Despite the oppotunity given to the LTTE to surrender and avoid unneccessary loss of life,now Blake(on be half of Hillary) is carrying out his threat, We have to see it as such and face it.
    Today on Wall Street Journal Eileen Donahue let cat out of the bag saying “we are on course for an independant international investigation”(Libiyan style get something passed and do what you want with it). A couple of days back this same Donahue said “let Israelis solve their problems with paletinians themselves no international interference is warrented”.
    How much ever Uvindu tries to pull wool over our eyes we know,the whole world knows who the Americans really are. What I have to say to Uvindu is “Its credibility stupid, do’nt lose it”
