Gota’s Paranoia, Efficiency And War Crimes

A Presidency Under Threat – Paranoia Against Efficiency

Recently I took part in a seminar on Rights and Development, arranged by the Law and Society Trust. That organization used to be bitterly critical of government, but under its new Director, Mala Liyanage, it seems to be trying to go back to the more balanced perspective of Neelan Tiruchelvam. He founded it, but after his death LST, like ICES, became tools of those opposed to the SLFP. I remember, while I was at the Peace Secretariat, having to upbraid the then Chair of LST, Raja Goonesekere, who had not known what was going on, and who after our correspondence agreed to look into the matter.

Certainly the more vicious attacks stopped after that, and it is a pity that, instead of adopting that sort of reasoned approach, government now deals with NGOs, as I told the President recently, because of worries about the hamfisted way of controlling (rather than monitoring) foreign funds, through incompetent people. But gratitude, as the case of the transfer to Australia of the last Head of the Secretariat shows, is stronger than public interest.

And unfortunately we have no institutional memory. Government ignored the report I did more than five years ago on NGOs, where I showed the interlocking directorates of a few, while also pointing out that the vast majority functioned positively. Sadly it is these last who feel threatened, while the others continue as before, except where, as with LST, a change of management leads to a more balanced approach. But I don’t suppose my report can now be found anywhere.

Ironically, on the day of the seminar, I was told that the Presidential Secretariat was looking for the Peace Secretariat files, which I had told them way back in 2009 to look after carefully. In fact they did make an attempt to put things in order after the Darusman Report came out, but as usual, with no personnel in place who were able to understand the situation, that effort too seems to have come to naught.

Interestingly, it was Basil Rajapaksa who told me not to try to persuade the President not to close down the Secretariat soon after the conflict ended. Since the President has told me later that closing it down was a great mistake, I was obviously wrong to think that Basil knew what he was doing. He seemed to get on well with Mahinda Samarasinghe, so I thought there would be some continuity there, but the Consultative Committee on Humanitarian Assistance was also got rid of, in his mad dash for full authority with regard to aid and development in the North.

That he was sincere in wanting to achieve results, whatever the motivation, I do not doubt, but the unfortunate results for government of his top down approach are now abundantly clear. I hope then that the President also registers that a similar approach in the South will have a similar impact. This I suspect is the reason for the decision to allocate funds through selected Members of Parliament rather than at the sole discretion of the Ministry of Economic Development. But since that is only to decentralize authoritarianism, it is essential to have systems of consultation in place. I realized from the discussion at the Consultative Committee on Public Administration Reforms that parliamentarians such as Navin Dissanayake and Thilanga Sumathipala did have such systems in place, but I can see that this is not the case everywhere.

Sadly that same approach seems now to have also affected the Defence Secretary, who was much more inclusive previously, perhaps because of his army training which meant that he knew the value of conferences and situation appraisals with study of the input of all stakeholders. Certainly the efficiency continues, as was apparent from the excellent presentation at the LST seminar of a very articulate Consultant from the UDA. But despite obvious goodwill, he could not respond effectively to the critiques made by the two other panelists. I should add that I was not on this panel, but spoke rather on Land and Development, though some of the principles I suggested with regard to compensation and justiciability would have applied in the first panel too.

One of the two other panelists in the morning session was Eran Wickramaratne, perhaps the most balanced and the most intelligent opposition Member of Parliament. He confined himself to four anecdotes which illustrated the heavy-handedness of the operations the UDA was conducting. One worrying tale was about the abduction of a Wanathamulla resident who had raised objections to the plans for developing the area. After protests about the residents, he was brought back, but there seems to have been no proper investigation into what happened.

The other tale was about the deployment of riot police at a consultation Eran was going to have with residents at an area near Jawatte that was scheduled for development. This seemed bizarre, but it seems now that the government, or rather the Secretary of Defence, sees conspiracies everywhere.

He may be right to be wary, but he must also realize, at least after the disaster at Weliveriya, is to put in place systems to deal with grievances, rather than allow them to fester, and be exploited by enemies of the government, as he describes some elements who have been critical of his actions. At Weliveriya for instance the worries of the vast majority could have been allayed by GN Division consultation mechanisms with statutory provisions for feedback. This is what the Secretary of the Ministry of Public Administration has tried now to put in place through a circular sent out in January, but in several laces this is not in operation, and no one seems to have laid down systems to ensure follow up, such as minutes that are available for perusal with clear designations of action points.

At the seminar, when the question of inadequate compensation for those who had title and comfortable houses was raised, the Consultant mentioned a grievance mechanism at the UDA, but it seems this is not known to those who have been upset by the plans. They have gone to Court, but much more sensible, as I proposed in my paper on land problems, is mediation systems. The UDA mechanism may strive for objectivity, but this will not be accepted so an independent mediator would be better. This is the more vital since, as the third panelist, the enormously erudite Anushka Wijesinha of the Institute of Policy Studies put it, there is a tendency to adopt command structure decisions, which are not always appropriate when dealing with large numbers of independent stakeholders. It was also noted that there was a tendency to make sweeping assessments, which are not appropriate when dealing with a diversity of ownership patterns amongst those being displaced.

Though everyone – including R M B Senanayake, who rarely has a good word for government – appreciated the enormous achievements of the UDA, it was also obvious that everyone, including the very decent Consultant, recognized that greater sensitivity was in order. Though most people understand the need to clean up slums, the word slum is used for a range of households, and there must be mechanisms to ensure alternatives that are commensurate with the current living conditions of individuals. Given the potential value of the lands being released, the excuse that resources are not available for a human approach to the problem is not acceptable.

But while ensuring sensitivity, and better consultation systems and independent assessments of issues raised, the UDA must also make sure that heavy handed actions are avoided. I can understand the Secretary of Defence being paranoid, and I sympathize with his anguish, for it must be galling to be treated as a war criminal when those who accuse him know perfectly well that he sought to fight the war in as humane a manner as was possible, given the intransigence of the LTTE and the connivance of many of those now criticizing him in the strategy they adopted of holding hundreds of thousands of civilians hostage. But his recent actions suggest that he has no qualms about giving strength to their allegations, in that he seems to be advocating impunity for those who should be charged with criminal offences, ranging from the killers of the students in Trincomalee in 2006 to the BBS stalwarts who have been inciting violence and threatening even the President.

Perhaps he thinks that nothing he does will be effective, and he might as well be hung for a sheep as for a lamb. But his recent indication that those responsible for the deaths at Weliveriya are in prison suggests that he understands the need for action. And now that he has the excellent narrative of the War put together by Godfrey Gunatilleke and others to help him argue his case, he must surely substantiate his defence in the many areas in which Sri Lanka did nothing wrong, while not attempting to defend the indefensible actions of a few individuals after the conflict. Simply allowing full implementation of the LLRC recommendations, and not standing in the way of the efficient unit set up in the Presidential Secretariat for the purpose, will do wonders for the country. But continuing intransigence, as well as unnecessary repression in connection with the otherwise excellent work of the UDA, will cause the President, and the country, dear.

    I have always been curious why skulduggery has become an essential part of statecraft repertoire in developing nations.

    Its easy to see isn’t it really? Developed nations have closed the gap between the rich and the poor. Most people edge towards the richer end of the spectrum. As a result the variations in their aspirations are tiny.

    The spectrum of diverse views one deals in a country like Sri Lanka is class, ethnicity, prosperity, gender and when it come to Tamils even caste needs to be taken into consideration. The finite resources at state’s disposal rarely enough to make everyone happy.

    Its easy to see why people like Gota and indeed the entire Rajapaske family has been able to get things done so quickly. They focus on what is in the best interest of all as a collective ignoring aspirations of a few even using skulduggery when called upon.

    The alternative is I suppose someone like Mr. Ranil Wickramasinghe style. I remember how he dithered with the Tamil problem, the coal power station and few other areas. Its no wonder why this style is not good for rapid growth isnt it?

      This educated humbug Rajiva Wijesinha is like all the other humbugs in the Sri Lankan regime: Liars, full of deceit and cunning; they twist and turn facts to suit their whims and fancies.

      The amazing thing is they get away with it and collect their fat pay checks from the public coffers.

      What he learnt in Oxford is how to manipulate facts and figures and present them to suit their ends.

        You are a hate monger and for you anyone who does not concur with your declining thoughts are humbugs. It is time for you to understand yourself first and find ways to remove the bugs in your irregular hum at the earliest.

        You are masturbating too much in these columns by branding writers with all kinds hate names and comments. It looks like you have no other preoccupation.

          Thirty five(35) out of Forty eight (48) Sri Lankan foreign based Diplomats are mere unqualified, untrained and inexprienced Rajapakse political party and a gang of close family members.
          What could you expect from a Tea salesman becomming an Embassador to the most important and influence country in the world simply because he is a family member.
          Nineteen (19) out of Twenty (20) Canberra Sri Lanka Embassy staff are political appointees. Only one employee is from Foreign Ministry. Same with all the other Sri Lankan Embassies around the world.
          By not placing qualified diplomats have cost Sri Lanka over 100s of Millions US Dollars on Foreign Lobbying firms, Media houses and to influence foreign governments.
          How Rajapakses run the country is like a toddy tavern surrounded by uneducated hired coolies and bribe takers.
          This is nothing but keeping a tight control of the Government using Thugs, criminals and convicts.
          Rajapakses will never ever give qualified and experienced Personnel their needful positions to the rightful persons in any field. They simply chase them away and install their puppets and that’s their nature.That’s why we are in such a mess today.
          It’s time for all the true patriots to take back our country from looters, liars and thieves before Rajapakses further ruins it.

        Eusense,

        It is because our politicians who gain power and label themselves our leaders, promise to make our land a Dharmishta island or a Dhamma-dwipa. They pray at the scared Bo tree and other famous temples, including Hindu temples-local and foreign, at every available opportunity. They carry their religiosity on their sleeves. They promise to protect Buddhism and dress in shiny, pristine white, to symbolize this commitment and cover their dubious thought processes and actions.It is this charade that is nauseating.

        It is said of Saddam Hussein that he would get a man killed and thereafter visit his family to condole bearing gifts for the dead man’s children! This cynical hypocrisy destroyed his credibility and reputation, while also paving the path to the hangman.

        Hypocrisy will breed contempt and revulsion. Hypocrisy and outright lying are repulsive traits in persons and when practiced as political tools, destroy nations. Honest mistakes and atonement are respected and make persons great. Man is fallible, but he should not be an outright hypocrite and surround himself with a whole herd of hypocrites.

          Apparently you have no idea what western politicians say and do before the elections and what they do once they are elected. You need to follow elections of the United States and the UK closely before making such statements. Why do you think the west is so corrupt to the level that their economies are at the verge of collapse?
          Compare SL to other 3rd world country and see what difference you see. Look at India as an example. While I totally oppose behavior of these politicians, I wouldn’t buy your nauseating post as activities confined only to SL.
          You also seem to show concerns that these politicians can destroy nations. What did Parabakaran try to do? Build up Sri lanka? Did you show your concerns for Sri Lanka then? Why this sudden heart warming love for Sri Lanka?

            I have lived in North America and follow news from there closely. Our politicians are yet the best at sanctimonious hypocrisy . We, as citizens are also easily the most gullible in the world, despite our 95 % literacy. Further,I am no fan of the LTTE or VP.

            Why do you keep justifying what is obviously wrong in Sri Lanka by comparisons with what is wrong elsewhere in the world ? Should not the. Comparison be with the best and the most acceptable?

            Isn’t ours the thrice blessed land? Isn’t ours the land that have four of the five Easwarams?

              Narendran,
              If you say “Our politicians are yet the best at sanctimonious hypocrisy” you should be able to site these “low level” hypocrisy shown by their counter parts in North America. Can you even give a name of one such person whom you used for comparison?
              Believe me the westerners are the most gullible in the world. Believing what the Tamil diaspora says is one example. Nigerian princes leaving millions of dollar to one American is another where the gullible victims have lost millions over the past year by giving their bank account information.

              Narendran, you have to be real, no country is going to be squeaky clean the way we want. Even the Vatican has its share of hypocrisy and corruption. Are you telling me that if Ranil, Chandrika or even Vigneswaran become the Sri Lankan leader things will be clean? You may be close to my age but it is apparent that you may have to use your life experiences more often than your ideological views.

              What are you excited about? Separation for Tamils? Don’t be so quick to party!
              The union of the kingdom of Scotland and kingdom of England was mutual to form the United Kingdom (also known as great Briton) in 1707. Any of them are free to secede. A referendum within Scotland can decide to secede. That has no relevance to Sri Lanka or for the Sinhalese and the Tamils because we don’t have any type of union agreement. Sri Lanka is one country!
              By the way, what does underwear has to do with Scotland?

                  You need to be real. If every minority community wants self determination and have referendums there will be million countries in this world! What did the west say when the Russian Ukrainians had a referendum? Did they say it is valid?

                    Scottish independence: Salmond says Scotland is ‘on cusp of making history’

                    Scotland is on the “cusp of making history” by voting for independence, the country’s first minister has predicted.

                    Alex Salmond described the referendum as a “process of national empowerment”.

                    Several banks have revealed their contingency plans for a “Yes” vote, while John Lewis and Asda said prices may rise after independence.

                    Labour leader Ed Miliband said a “No” vote would deliver stronger devolved powers for Scotland.

                    Mr Salmond has called for an inquiry into what he said was the leaking of sensitive market data by the Treasury ahead of a formal announcement RBS that it would relocate its registered headquarters to London if Scotland votes for independence.

                    He was speaking to the international media at an event in Edinburgh which was taking taking place on the anniversary of the 1997 devolution referendum.

                    A new poll has suggested the “No” campaign holds a narrow lead ahead of next Thursday’s independence referendum. Two previous polls suggested the race was neck and neck.

    Eran Wickremasinghe you think , wants to do good things for the country and its poor inhabitant population which in fact is the great majority.

    Chinese Business Intelligence publication from Hong Kong is all praise for the Mattala Airport and the Harbour’

    Don’t Eran and his imbecile mate Dr Harsha want to turn them in to an Aviation and Maritime Museum when they come to power?.

    The write up in the Magazine explains in clear language how these two life long assets and the nationwide Infrastructure which is being put in place are going to serve our Motherland in its march to prosperity

    It mentions the South which houses the biggest concentration of Sinhala Buddhists inhabitant population as the main driver of the Economy going forward.,

    Shinzo Abe wouldn’t bring the best of their best Business leaders with him and spend two full days to do Whale Watching in Kalpitiya .

    And Chinese President is not coming for our Lagoon Crabs.

    This Doctor either should support the Govt to ensure that the inhabitants reach higher Mid Income level Nation as the Chinese Business Intelligence Magazine says, or join Eran and help the UNP Christian Faction to turn Mattala in to a Museum City.

      Colombo and other cities are no doubt being made beautiful. Nuwara Eliya is a delight to behold. But at what price? Is the price the erosion of civic values, good governance and democracy? Is the price murder, rape and mayhem? Is the price rising poverty at the expense of the few becoming filthy rich? Is the price a degraded society?

        Sri Lankans are being bamboozled by a corrupt regime via this current “Beautifying Facade”.

        In the process all rules & institutions of governance and democracy are being dismantled.

        The day the corrupt UPFA Bigwigs fly away in a hurry from SL, infrastructure of government both local and natioanl will collpase. Look at Libya & Iraq! We will have chaos!

        Cheers!

        PS:

        Dear Sumane,

        Dunnow’ about “inhabitants reaching higher Mid Income level”. However, a few, selected UPFA cronies will join the Global Richest 100 for sure at the end.

        Let us pop a fine bottle of “Bubbly”! That will be an achievement.

        Dr Narendran ,

        Weren’t there any murders, rapes and mayhem before Nanthikadal?.

        Did our poor inhabitants have bread or cakes then ?.

        Now the poor Dalits in Jaffna who can’t afford Cargills KFC, can buy their kids at least a Rio Ice Cream on their way to Nalloor..

        And no risk of them being abducted to serve Prabakaran ( Ref Dr Niranjan & his Drinking Mate from Strawberrykulum)..

        Is this a sign of Civil Rights erosion?.

        May be your Vellala mates from Colombo 7 can’t do what they want to do with the Public Land in the North .

        And they can’t have a TNA Police to keep Douglas , Karuna and now even old Anandasagaree out.

        What is important to the great majority of the inhabitant population is what matters most.

        Does the TNA represent the total Tamil inhabitant population, when there are Government Ministers, who are Vellala Tamils, Estate Tamils and Batti Tamils.

        Then there are ex LTTE members who have realized their mistakes and now working hard to make their former followers get somewhere in a peaceful environment without going back to their old ways.

        Are these people in the TNA?.

        TNA only welcome the Diaspora , Emmanuel, and LTTE in house counsel Rudra and their agenda.

        You seem to be running in a pretty straight line after Vellala CM fitted you with TNA blinkers.

          The final breakung point (which you call running a pretty straight line) came with the despicable tactics deployed by MR to impeach CJ.Shirani Bandaranayake. This episode clearly focussed the despicable nature of this government and MR. The Vellahla CM has nothing to with it.

      “Chinese Business Intelligence publication from Hong Kong is all praise for the Mattala Airport and the Harbour’”

      Hambantota, is more like a Chandigarh city the future which is yet to be seen.

      Chinese annual holidays are like martial law for the country where folk cannot think for self- 7daysX3 and folk have to attend to many matters so the stay can be like a europeans weekend break in the Maldives but low spending Chinese.

      Chinese don’t do sun and tan and the young may enjoy water sport.
      The western tourist numbers are dropping due to the warnings given by UK/US to their own travelers to Lanka.

      Tourism is no rag doll for Lanka at the moment. To top it the Chinese have a dislike for the opium trade which cost it it’s Hong Kong. The Chinese are doing a great job in Afghanistan by re cultivating the poppy with saffron.

    The sinners like this author and DJ were and still are comrade in complexity of genocidal killing of more than 100,000 innocent civilians including babies after enforced starvation for months, in being partners of the regime. Even baby milk powder and medicines were prevented by the paranoid war criminal whom the author claims “fought the war in as humane a manner as was possible”. The author’s dishonesty is obvious when he refers to the Report of the Secretary General’s Panel of Experts as Darusman’s.

    How can he expect the government to implement the recommendations of the LLRC when the criminals like Douglas Devananda, Karuna and Pillaiyan are partners in the persecution on the ethnic Tamils and investigations of their crimes will lead to their convictions.

    Sri Lanka refuses to submit to the UN war crimes probe. Every Tamil must welcome this decision. Racist Sinhalese leaders have been encouraging the people to hate Tamils and Indians for decades to get votes to keep their power. Now they have started encourage the people to hate the UN and the world. It is a good news for Tamils. Now the world will get an idea about the racist Sinhalese leaders who promote hate to keep their power. This is a victory for every Tamil. The days are getting closer to nail the foolish Rajapaksas, and their criminal racist supporters. Trust me, Sinhalese will regret in due time; their stupidity and ignorance will eat them and their future generations.

      Recently, a Sinhalese friend of mine said that I can stay in Sri Lanka for 30 days as an Australian. Even though Sri Lanka is my motherland. In fact I can stay in Singapore and Malaysia for 90 days, but in my motherland only for 30 days. We need to teach the racist Sinhalese leaders a good lesson. Trust me we will in due time. Tamils are 82 million in this world, but the Sinhalese are only 20 million. We are in four times, and we need to teach them a good lesson very soon.

    Prof:

    Although intially I had reseravations about people like you and Dyan I was begining to come round to thinking that perhaps with your level of intelect and intelligence you have risen above your prejudice and showing remorse and regrett to Right the Wrong which was a welcome change. But I have been stopped in my tracks with the following.

    “And now that he has the excellent narrative of the War put together by Godfrey Gunatilleke and others to help him argue his case, he must surely substantiate his defence in the many areas in which Sri Lanka did nothing wrong, while not attempting to defend the indefensible actions of a few individuals after the conflict. Simply allowing full implementation of the LLRC recommendations, and not standing in the way of the efficient unit set up in the Presidential Secretariat for the purpose, will do wonders for the country. But continuing intransigence, as well as unnecessary repression in connection with the otherwise excellent work of the UDA, will cause the President, and the country, dear.

    I am afraid that you are torn between the past , present and the future because of your prejudice . Let me give you my take on your above quote.

    1) In many areas where Sri Lanka did nothing wrong. Are you suggesting that there are areas where Sri Lanka did nothing wrong. For the last 64 years Sri Lanka under successive governments has not done a sigle thing right culminating in the 30 year armed struggle with a Brutal End in which thousands were slaughtered under the Stewadship of Gotha.
    2) LLRC was a non starter and it was smokescreen to hide the truth and even the minimum offered under LLRC was not acceptable to MR and his Henchmen. That shows the task ahead.
    3) I agree fully with the last bit and say that it will cost the Countrty very dear.
    Even the United Kingdom is talking about a Federal Structure but only MR the born RACIST who is hell bent on ethnic cleansing but he will not succeed.

    ACCOUNTABILTY is a Pre Requisite to RECONCILIATION.
    In my view MR or Gotha have no role and they must be out of the equation and there is no half way house.

      1. Do you think it was a wise idea to raise arms against a gov.? What did these terrorist expect will happen one day? Separate country? You say thousands were slaughtered why? wasn’t it because of human shields? Have you ever written condemning Paryabakaran for using violence? or you thought he would succeed and you will have a separate country? You are now shedding tears for the civilians killed, what did you do to prevent that? Did you write to Parayabakaran about your concern about innocent civilians? Suddenly your heart seem to bleed for these civilians!
      2. First, there shouldn’t have been a LLRC. What lessons to be learnt and by whom, other than the short sighted Tamils who joined the LTTE terror group. Defence forcesare there to protect the country and they did an excellent job. They have nothing to learn.
      And then Reconciliation with whom? dead terrorists who killed 100,000 innocent civilians and terrorized people of SL for 30 years? Terrorist wars kill innocent civilians that is a sad collateral damage according to the West.

          2.Begin and company did not want a part of England they wanted British to establish Israel for them. If they asked for a part of England and started bombing they would have been destroyed.

    To your excellent contribution above may I add, not sure if you will agree, that after the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi, and chasing Muslims from Jaffna, many said that Prabakaran must go and some saner leader must lead LTTE and Tamils but most were in denial only to see the destruction of the whole movement and more than 100,000 innocent Sri Lankan Tamils with it.

    At least the Oxbridge scholar can see what is to come to the Rajapakse brothers but I am not sure if he can see what the majority in the country will do to the others in the same power game.

      Saro:

      I am a realist and I have never denied the fact that Prabkaran made the monumental error of ordering the killing of Rajiv. There was also a contributory factor and Rajiv dug his own grave.
      Rajiv made the monumental error of not respecting the feeligs of the aggrieved but instead tried to dictate terms and the IPKF simply replaced the barbaric Sri lankan army and carried on the killng. I can give you list of people who were killed by IPKF who had no part in the freedom struggle.
      Just to give you one example what do you think made Jeyadevan Narendran to support LTTE initially. Two members of his family were killed by IPKF for no reason.
      For me Prabakaran was a means to an end and the end was to live in Peace, Security , Equality and above all with Dignity.WE could have avoided the horrors of Krishanthi ,Isipriya and hundreds more. We have a strong democratic tradition and Prabakaran would have been a thing of the past.
      Driving out the Muslims was although morally wrong it was militarily a necessity. It was question of You or Me as they were spying for the enemy.
      As a Nation both Tamils and the Majority Sinhalese have made a lot of mistakes but ours was a reaction to an action and all the carnage could have been avoided if we had Visionary Sinhalese politicians. We had no power in our hand to determine the destiny of Sri Lanka so the fault lies with the Majority.
      I make no apologies as ours was a fight for survival.

        3. Thinking Parayabakaran was your saviour and supporting him
        4. Thinking Muslims do not have to “live in Peace, Security , Equality and above all with Dignity” and chasing them away
        5. Thinking that not Tamils but only Sinhalese make mistakes
        6. Causing the carnage and thinking the Sinhalese will not react
        7. Thinking politicians and terrorist are visionaries
        8. Thinking the Tamils had no “democratic” power

        To clarify, Jayadevan and Narendran are two separate individuals though brothers. We lost a mother, brother and an old gardener, due to the criminality of the IPKF. However, within a short time, it was clear to us that the LTTE had precipitated this incident by planting a landmine close to our house. The looting of the house and the vast library of valuable books by the LTTE ,subsequently, confirmed that they were in addition to their hateful terrorism- a bunch of thieves, with no moral scruples. They lost their credentials to lead the unfortunate Tamils long before they were destroyed.

        The subsequent actions of the MR government, do not redeem the LTTE. Both are the two sides of the same coin.

          I lost a cousin at the tender age of 23 who after his fathers death in Anuradhapura returned to care for his mum after qualifying as an Engineer in Tamilnadu. I found him a Job in Jaffna but fate will have it and he was killed along the lines of your loss. The Sri Lankan Airforce was chasing a group of LTTE carders and dropped a bomb near my Cousins House and a splinter hit him and he died on the spot and we are still grieving.
          Unlike you I dont hold any GRUDGE against the LTTE as the cause for which they were fighting was much bigger than our personal grief.
          It was Prabakaran who put Eelam on the World map and believe you me thanks to the Sacrifice we are slowly but surely inching towards the ” PROMISED LAND”. I have no doubt and we need to rise above our personal grief as our enemy is the 20 Million born RACISTS.

            Kali you fool we ALL lost mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers at the hands of the LTTE. How many Tamils died at the hands of the LTTE? Do you think Tamil tears are any different to Muslim and Sinhala tears?

            As for your promised land, dream on. Thank God all diaspora Tamils are not racists like you.

              Taraki: Idiots like dont see any dangers. But people like Prof Rajiva and Dayan who are a notch above you in terms of the level of Intellect and Intelligence can see the danger.

              The killing field belongs to you.

              As for the label of Racist. It takes a Racist to spot another Racist. What you are seeing is the image of yourself in the Mirror.
              I am not surprised as there are 20 million.

            Kali you are a Kalli or a palli.

            Tamil problem was put on the world map after 9/11 and Prabakaran was the victim of 9/11. If he had understood the changing world and the world opinion, he would have survived still.

            Many LTTE cadres faithful to Pirabakaran consumed cyanide but Praba did not have the guts to swallow one. Instead he was butchered by the brutal Sinhala army.

            Keep on worshipping the failed hero and portray yourself as a hard skin. Unfortunately, your ignoramus drum beats only portray your idiotic psyche.

            Your kooli gospels will not last long and very soon you will have to find your hiding. Please contact KP urgently.

    Much bile has been drawn by the many who have taken the trouble to comment.

    To our crooked, thick-skinned, fork-tongued, professor it will be like water off a duck’s back.

    He thinks memories are short and people will be impressed by his tales of derring-do. He does not get it that he was willingly manipulated by a cunning coterie to present a front to the anxious world. He has not seen the error of his ways and it is clear he wishes to carry on as if nothing untoward happened. What price an education? Erudition is but a bauble if not buttressed by common decency and humanity. Alas, it is clear that as long as memories endure, he will not enjoy any credibility in his utterances.

      I have lost count of number of times this Oxbridge educated humbug crossed over to the ruling party in his entire political career.

      Do you think one needs principles to stick to one’s party?

        Native Vedda,

        Yes, I do believe that regardless of where we get our education it is principles that will guide us in dealings with our fellowmen.

        Rajiva, inspite of his privileged education, has as his guiding principle the need to stay under the umbrella of power. He will trample on anything that steps in his way.

    Being a realist how can you expect visionary Sinhalese politicians. Look at the leftists – so called – in the government, they do more harm to the country by deluding themselves into thinking they help into resolve the national problem and inequality. There were and still are more spies and traitors like Devananda, Karuna, Pillaiyan among Tamils than Muslims.

    Inexperienced RG and IPKF made blunders and the latter did many unnecessary murders and sufferings.Sadly the weak has to suffer to get sympathy from the mighty international community. Nelson Mandela, Mahathma Gandhi, Martin Luther King had to sacrifice their lives in order to win freedom to their oppressed communities. We have experienced that gun is not a mean to peace but to the end itself. The majority can afford to blunder but not the weaker minority.

    I agree on lot of things with you but there are differences in approach. One consolation is that paranoid Gota has turned to be our asset for the future.

    What a father and what a son.!! I used to read Ragiva’s articles when
    he was a young writer in the 60s n 70s and amazed with his unbiased
    opinions expressed at a time when there was friction between the Singhalese and the Tamils over several issues and the so called war was on.

    His father passed away peacefully last week and let his body rest in
    peace. He was a great man and never harmed any community in his career
    in govt. service.

    How did he get in to parliament?

    No one voted for him.

    GR’s brother MR appointed him from the national list. Grateful?

      A bigger problem is terrorist sponsored Tam`ill` colonization of Colombo City.

      Tam`ill` terrorists bombed Sinhalese and Muslims out of Colombo and Tamils colonized Colombo – Wellawattei, Kotahena, etc.

      Ella Kolla this must be reversed by whatever means.

      Don’t let Kāliya Singhaphobia come close to either.

    Prof Wijeyasinghe if the war was fought in a ” humane ” way, why are you not permitting the investigators of the Human Rights Council to go to your country and carry out the investigation and clear the good name of your new found friend, the imbecile Secretary of Defence?.

    Professor Rajiva,

    When you say, regarding the Defence Secretary, that “those who accuse him know perfectly well that he sought to fight the war in as humane a manner as was possible”, this is not true. As a result of the powerful propaganda effort against him (that began during the war) there are many people deeply convinced that Lt Col Gotabaya Rajapaksa is a combination of Hitler, Goebbels and whatever other popular war criminals spring to mind. That is the power of propaganda. People are convinced.

      Propaganda?

      When murders,rapes and mass graves are dismissed or covered up, without a single investigation ever against perpetrators, when impunity is publicly urged and promoted, when a drug-peddling thug-murderer who killed his own party’s organizer is publicly embraced, when an extremist Buddhist organization’s function is attended and promoted, what propaganda does anyone need?

      Wijesinha is just another rotten opportunist covering up all those murders for his masters. He conveniently ignores a number of other murders, rapes and grave crimes, focusing on the Trinco-5 as if just addressing that single incident would absolve the regime of all its crimes.

    This “erudite Oxford scholar” can’t even get an old saying in English right. It is not, “Perhaps he thinks that nothing he does will be effective, and he might as well be hung for a sheep as for a lamb.”
    It is not “LAMB,” you sycophantic creep, it is “GOAT.” Or is that too close in pronunciation to the name of the man you are now trying to bootlick to use correctly?
    Goats and sheep notwithstanding, this creature is the closest thing to a political pretzel that Sri Lanka has to offer and a worthy son of a father who wrote the book on holding pandam to the powerful.
