How To Beat Pillay And Jayalalithaa: A Chance For GL In March Geneva

By Dayan Jayatilleka

There is a right way and a wrong way to resist Navi Pillay —and Jayalalithaa— and the Sri Lankan regime, I fear, is almost certain to do it the wrong way, which is also the way that is least likely to succeed.

The difference between Navi Pillay and Jayalalithaa is that the former is wrong on the most important thing but right on some things while the latter is wrong on everything she says about Sri Lanka.

The way to respond to Navi Pillay is to pull the props or scaffolding from under her outrageous proposals of an international inquiry by implementing or constructively engaging with all her proposals except for that single outrageous one perched at the top of her scaffold of argumentation.

Simply put, her argument is that Sri Lanka has been badly remiss in certain matters and areas. From this she engages in sleight of hand — or makes a leap — to the proposal for an international inquiry. Many states have or have had far worse situations, especially post (protracted) war, but have not had to accept the indignity of an retrospective international inquiry, so there is no reason for Sri Lanka to submit to one.

Sri Lanka can intercept her argument in mid-flight and shoot it down in flames by the simple expedient of pledging in the Council to implement all or almost or of her other recommendations, with the help of her Office. Let’s face it: apart from the claymore mine of her recommendation of an international inquiry, the rest of what she says is pretty accurate and what she recommends — apart from the international inquiry — is quite desirable, not to mention overdue.

To re-state my case rather differently, Navi Pillay bases her case on the gap between Sri Lanka’s practice and international norms and standards, especially the ones Sri Lanka has entered international commitments to uphold. Our response must be to plug that gap by taking on board and solemnly pledging before the Council to make the rectifications that Navi Pillay has called for — apart from the ‘outlier’ of an international inquiry which is hardly an international norm but is precisely a dangerous precedent.

We can benignly ‘decapitate’ Navi Pillay’s case by adopting the body, the torso, of her proposals and criticisms, thereby separating them from the ‘head’ of her proposal: that of an international inquiry.  This is our only chance of winning over the rest while deflecting the West, in the UNHRC and some day at the UN General Assembly. We cannot do so by attacking both head and body of Madam Pillay’s critical report. We must differentiate between her constructive criticisms and moderate proposals on the one hand and her destructive and extreme ones on the other. We must engage with the former while opposing the latter.

The problem with the current Sri Lankan attitude is that it cannot separate the main contradiction— and the primary aspect of that main contradiction— from the rest. The Sri Lankan regime will doubtless find everything that Navi Pillay’s report says, an affront. This approach will prevent Sri Lanka from isolating the West while winning over The Rest— which was our strategy in May 2009. It must be remembered that according to the UNHRC’s founding constitution, The Rest have 34 votes in a Council of 47, while the West can only count on 13.

If I may repeat myself: resisting Navi Pillay and the West can be done successfully only by accepting that which is right in what they have said while isolating and rejecting that which is manifestly wrong, dangerous and unreasonable. It cannot be achieved through a posture of rejectionism on the part of Sri Lanka; rejectionism based on an antediluvian and absolutist notion of sovereignty. In order to be defensible, sovereignty cannot be upheld in an absolutist form.

Navi Pillay and our Western critics must be faulted and rejected when they ask us to go beyond universal norms and global best practices. They must not be spurned when their criticisms are in the ballpark. This is the only way in which to win back the moderate middle ground and thus the majority of the Council.

In saying this I am not preaching something I didn’t practice, nor am I arguing for a reasonable moderation of the part of a Sri Lanka in retreat and on the defensive, which we failed to display when we were on top in 2009. Indeed our winning pre-emptive resolution of May 2009 incorporated a majority of the paragraphs of the EU’s draft resolution against us, discarding only that which was egregiously wrong—most notably the call for an international inquiry into war crimes allegations. As a YouTube search will show, I made that point when making my closing arguments before the vote at the Special Session.

Knowing the Government of Sri Lanka as I do, I am sadly certain it will go about it the wrong way. By contrast to May 2009 when we held the moral high ground, not just in our own eyes but in the eyes of the majority of the Council, through the method of reasoned argument and the practice of persuasion, Sri Lanka in March 2014 will continue on the disastrous path of 2012 and 2013, namely of narcissism and rejectionism; a posture in which we hold the moral high ground only in our own eyes and that of a dwindling minority of the Council’s membership.

Sri Lanka’s discourse— including its diplomatic discourse in Geneva— has shifted to one in which national sovereignty is erroneously interpreted to mean domestic and international  unilateralism. While the May 2009 model was of the broadest united front based on ‘uniting the many, defeating the few’, the post war Sri Lankan discourse has been one of rejectionism. In multilateral forums, rejectionism equals neo-isolationism. It is the road to defeat in Geneva.

As for the even more dangerous commitment of Jayalalithaa to pushing for a referendum on Tamil Eelam, the Sri Lankan answer must be to seek to convince opinion to the contrary in the rest of India and among responsible elements in Tamil Nadu, and to secure an alliance with the Centre, whichever party is in office.

In short the Sri Lankan policy must be one of greater— and broader spectrum— engagement with India, in an attempt to win over hearts and minds. Balancing off the rest of India with Delhi at its core requires the ability to convince India that its national interests lie more with a united Sri Lanka than with turning a blind eye to Tamil expansionism/irredentism. This in turn means helping Delhi balance of Chennai. Such a strategy of balancing must have as its essential element, the devolution of power to the Northern provincial council to the fullest extent of the 13th amendment (but not beyond). This strategy would strive to utilize the Indo-Lanka accord and its product the 13th amendment as Sri Lanka’s shield against Jayalalithaa’s pan-Tamilian expansionism.

The current Sri Lankan approach of regarding the Indo-Lanka Accord and the 13th amendment not as a shield but rather as impediments to be shuffled off or shrunk is dangerously counterproductive. In the face of the manifest threat emanating from Tamil Nadu, it is even more dangerous to regard Delhi as an enemy which can be balanced off by Colombo through recourse to a very distant Beijing or by imitation of Pakistan.

Difficult as it may be for the rational mind to grasp, the present ‘strategic’ perspective of the dominant faction of the Sri Lankan regime, is that it is possible to simultaneously wage a Cold War against Indian influence (i.e. be locked in a low-intensity Cold War with Delhi) while eyeballing it with the sole superpower, the US.

If Sri Lanka proceeds along its current path it will find itself in the most dangerous of strategic encirclements. Young Prince Gemunu felt himself bereft of strategic space, hemmed in between a Tamil kingdom and the sea. The dogmatic delusions of the current Sri Lankan regime will find us caught between two spearheads: a Western offensive driving through Geneva which will reach its final form with a Hillary Clinton presidency in 2016 (a mere two years away), and a more proximate and ferocious offensive driven by Jayalalitha, while our collective back will always be to the (Indian) Ocean.

      You can say that again.

      The late moie actor George Burns once said “Too bad all the people who know how to run the country are busy driving taxis and cutting hair.”

      Dayan Jayathilleke is living proof that “all the people who know how to run the foreign policy are writing crap to anti-government websites”.

      Hope he will shut up after the US get their resolution through at Geneva, then get told by Russia and China at the Security Council to “go jump in the lake”.

      Dera Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka,

      “There is a right way and a wrong way to resist Navi Pillay —and Jayalalithaa— and the Sri Lankan regime, I fear, is almost certain to do it the wrong way, which is also the way that is least likely to succeed.”

      Yes, there is a right way, the Way of the enlightened people like the enlightened Buddha.

      Yes , there is wrong way, the way of Racist Sinhala Buddhist Monk of Mahawansa. All the subsequent Sinhala Biddist racists, before Independence and after independence and those who are in power in the SL Govt. and the way of V Prabakaran set about, even though initially somewhat correct, went out of the way.

      IS the current regime making the same mistake V Prabakarn made?

      Time for the Next revolution of he people.

      The People Vs. Sinnhala Mahanam “Buddhist” Bullshit racists and the Tamil Bullshit Racists for form an Egalitarian Society. French, where are you. You helped America in the beginning. Can you spare some Exocet Missiles to clean up the racists?

    ..Beat Miss Pillai … No way.

    The great majority will say “Appo.. Eppaa.. Please don’t

    They need another 6 years at least of Rajapksas to complete the Crown Colombo, Harbour City, Enderamulla to Dambulla Expressway, International Harbour in KKS and the Pallaly Airport.

    Even the Vellala CM would want the latter two to come into fruition ‘ as he is now trying to portray them as his ideas.

    Look at the two election coming up next month.

    All what the Cameron, Harper, Diaspora preferred alternative GOVT UNP does is to defend Ms Pillai from Matara to Mahabage.

    What more the peace loving great majority of the inhabitant population want?….

    Once again DJ is jumping from branch to branch and wants to appear that he is the one who is solving or at least providing a solution. What he is really saying is that Rajapakse regime has not done anything in a legal manner either during the war or after. He is also saying that Rajapakse regime has lied repeatedly to Sri Lankans and the International community. In short he is saying Rajapakse regime is wrong and has to fall in line with Navi Pillai’s requirements. So why is he in the first place using the headline “How to beat Pillai”, all what he should have said is “How to agree with Pillai”. This clearly shows that DJ is like something that jumps from branch to branch he too is jumping with no substance to his writing.

    Jayalalitha and Pillay are the ones that keep MR in power. Loyal or non-loyal expatriates are a minor group without votes compared with the vast majority of the electorate living in Sri Lanka; what they say does not matter to those who live in the SLK. As long as the apparitions of Jayalalitha, Pillay, US and Eelam exist, people would feel insecure and so they would prefer to vote for the leader around whom they could rally. They would rather trust the devil they know than the one that they don’t know. It’s simple human nature that the so called elitists are too dim to understand. MR may be from a village, but he knows his people and their psyche much better than an Oxford don.

      “Jayalalitha and Pillay are the ones that keep MR in power.”

      Not really.

      It is the stupid Sinhala/Buddhists majority which voted for the regime, counted the votes, sustained it with its exclusively Sinhala/Buddhists armed forces, corrupt institutions …………

      Come to think of it, VP helped MR immensely.

        Native Vedda, What thrishu said could be correct. Who responsible for the change of mentality of Sinhala/Buddhist majority to behave like this. It was tamils and muslims extremist actions in SL and abroad. Even though MR government took some stupid actions economically wise, and people face hardships due to those actions, what’s the secret that people still gather around MR and the government. It is the international pressure put forward by USA,UK,Europe and India against MR and the forces who saved this country. So long as your native,primitive mind and in common Die Ass Pora mind unable to grasp the truth, it’s better for MR. The more the pressure the more the popularity of MR. So carry on guys.

      An EXCELLENT comment Thrishu, excellent. You are ABSOLUTELY right! What all these people – Cameron, Pillay, Jayalalitha etc – are doing is to help the Rajapakshas keep the ‘boogi men’ in the Sinhala Buddhist majority psyche alive!!! and thus help them not only to prolong the life span of their regime but also to intimidate, harass and persecute minorities – using cat’s paws like BBS – as well as thwart dissent in any form! These idiots either must DO whatever they can to bring the Rajapakshs to justice if they have committed war crimes or just SHUT UP and MIND THEIR OWN BUSINESS!!

    Dayan, So your ethical advise on behalf of the victims of murder is to stall or prevent a credible investigation and allow those criminals to walk free??
    Why don’t you also not suggest that we do not have a police force or judiciary and allow free for all criminals? This will anyway soon be the norm here, thanks to educated rogues like you.
    WHAT IS SHOCKING IS PEOPLE LIKE YOU ARE ALLOWED TO REPRESENT A DEMOCRATIC COUNTRY AND ITS PEOPLE AT HUMAN RIGHT FORUMS. A BLOODY SNAKE IN THE GRASS.

    Dayan J once again finds himself swinging the political trapeze. Understandably, for his own interest he has to be on the good side of the Rajapakse regime. On the other hand, he has to mind his professional integrity too. Is this why he lets off a velvet punch at Mrs. Navi Pillay “Simply put, her argument is that Sri Lanka has been badly remiss in certain matters and areas. From this she engages in sleight of hand — or makes a leap — to the proposal for an international inquiry” But here he makes the same mistake the entire Rajapakse clique makes. This is not a Rajapakse GoSL Vs Mrs. Navi Pillay issue. It is the Rajapakses big battle with many actors in the global community, which the regime unwisely forced to be ranged against them. This is once again the devilry of the Rajapakses to project to the Sinhalese that this is the continuum of the Sinhala Vs Tamil battle. Mrs. Navi Pillay carries a Tamil namee and, therefore, she has to be against everything Sinhalese. Then, just as fast, DJ finds his intellectual composure and notes “the expedient of pledging in the Council to implement all or almost or of her other recommendations, with the help of her Office….solemnly pledging before the Council to make the rectifications” Forget the word “pledging” which is a word that is not used in the same sentence as the Rajapakses. Anyway, DJ is right here, to be precise. The Rajapakses should have implemented their own LLRC recommendations. It is long overdue. And now they try to play hardball. Too late.

    DJ also invokes the other name in the list of Sinhala nightmares – Jayalalitha “As for the even more dangerous commitment of Jayalalithaa to pushing for a referendum on Tamil Eelam, the Sri Lankan answer must be to seek to convince opinion to the contrary in the rest of India and among responsible elements in Tamil Nadu, and to secure an alliance with the Centre, whichever party is in office – not be achieved through a posture of rejectionism on the part of Sri Lanka that Navi Pillay has called for. This business of trying to create a rift between Delhi and Tamilnadu is old hack and is losing its potency. The shrewd Brahmins of the South Bloc are likely to respopnd – as the US State Department told Yankee Dicky in 7/83 “first settle your differences with TN. That is long overdue”

    Dayan J finally settles down to “a strategy of balancing that must have as its essential element devolution of power” No dispute there. But why have the Rajapakses dragged their foot for so long here. Even if they come forward now they will be suspected of insincerity. The 13th Amendment has no meaning to the Tamils unless much of the substantial powers of the Governor are transferred to the CM of the Council. A way out will be for the Governor – like the role of the Governor General in the pre-1972 period – to remain a figure head. I know this will incense a number of Sinhalese but the fact is the Rajapakses are running out of options.

    Dayan,

    The 13th amendment, even if fully implemented, will be a failure because it was designed to be so. It is a bad apple, whether in parts or as a whole. ” (but not beyond)” the 13th amendment”. Why ? Can you explain? Would you have continued to advocate 13 + ,if the EPDP was in control of the NPC?

    Our President promised 13 + and more! The APRC recommendations were touted as the alternative by our President and his government to theTamils and the world, It is this type of duplicity on many fronts,which Dharshani Bastians highlights in a parallel thread, that is the root cause of our current Geneva problems. Yes, your recommendation to address most of the concerns of Navi Pillai is right. However, as usual you are telling the government not to do what is crucial and what is at the core of all other issues- meaningful devolution. What you are once again advocating is more duplicity by way of not recognising the elephant in the room. More political games, instead of obvious solutions!

      The Sinhala are collectively insecure top to bottom. Rajapaksas are racists and possess outrageous egotism. They are unscrupulous and extremely dangerous. I do not know where will all end; rather turbulent times ahead!

      Dr. RN,
      why is that Dayan sees nothing wrong with MR but his men or coalition ? I heard him expressing his views lanken TV senders that he does not find anything wrong with MR, but his regime.. why is that ? No doubt he is strategically is comparable to a thug leader on highly corrupted street where drugs deals with all abusive kin pins. See, the manner he handled it with Duminda Silva, and again latest drug case with negambo men..?

      If MR can use all the revengeful against SF, former CJ, Dr. SB, CBK and everyone, why cant he go against Drug dealers and other highly corrupted events in the country today ? He could use all his executive powers to shape up lanken problem by implementing 17 AMd. even today is not too late. What keeps him away from doing so ?

      way of not recognizing the elephant in the room

      It is not just MR, Dayan and Sinhala people in general or (stupid racist chauvinist Sinhala Buddhist extremists if you will) who has not recognized the “Elephant” in the room.

      From my/Sinhala Buddhist extremist point of view, Tamil side claiming exclusive ownership to a large swath of land in the N/E is yet another “ELEPHANT” in the ROOM that they pretend NOT to see.

      Every time they refer to “colonization”, “sinhalization”, Tamil homeland, they are asserting this “exclusive” right. Tamils are free to say N/E is their homeland but Sinhalese are not free to say “Sri Lanka (including N/E)” is their homeland.

      Who says if Sri Lankan government were to fully implement Indo-Lanka agreement India would vote different? Nonsense. India will always vote according to her interests or better still interests of the government in power. If it is an yes vote that would take to rope in DMK or AIADMK they would vote that way.

      Sri Lanka should reconcile with itself because it is in the interest of Sri Lanka. If devolution is what it takes to get their we should go there. Still, we should not expect, just because we have given “Tamil” people their “due rights”, India, Tamil Nadu or other countries will be kind to us. US, UK, India interfereing in our affairs will continue for as long as there is pro-LTTE influence in those states.

      What Dayan says is right. That’s is why these columns are filled with hate mongers who attack the person than the issue/points he raises.

        Recognise the elephant in the room and deal with it first. There after, deal with the Trojan horse, both the Sinhalese and Tamils fear. The fear of the Trojan horse cannot be assuaged without the elephant in the room being dealt with.

          There is a “goodwill” interpretation and a “hostile” interpretation. Just like the way CJ Shiranee’s went, the 13A has outlived its purpose and much water has flown under the bridge. The latest declaration by Gotabaya that, after the dubious conflicting numbers of the army’s presence in the North by both MR and Lalith Weeratunga, has glaring shown the bluffs and cheats they are, and expecting a “goodwill” interpretation is pure silly. Mahinda’s duplicity surprisingly became apparent immediately after the conclusion of the war. Now, he has spoken on the reasons for his Cuban and Israeli visit but had failed to factor-in some variables that glaringly differ in the case of SL. Better kept in the box, the spring of surprises would certainly irk his kith and kin, and at the end of the day he will be forced to pay the price for his misadventures.

            Jansee,

            I have also read the references that MR made in terms of Israel and Cuba in conjunction with numerous UN Resolutions. MR is wrong to draw parallels with both of these countries. Cuba survived because of the cold war and the agreement JFK made with the Russians as a result of the Cuban missile crises. As for Israel, the less is said is better. Sri Lanka by no means in that category; only salvation is possible support of China and Russia. Russia would not want to fight on multi fronts with Ukraine is at the prime at the moment.

            Having said all this, what will be the effect of the 3rd revolution and possible ramifications for Rajapaksas? It will all depend on essence of the Resolution and willingness of the major players to carry it through. Suppose, the Resolution is categoric and unambiguous that an International Investigation should be carried by the UN on the last stages of the war; what next? How can the UN with the support of the sponsors carry the Resolution through? What actions or punishments that SL can be subjected to if she fails to corporate? What role will India play?

            It is important to maintain the support of the Sinhala moderates; it is an extremely polarising issue for them. If they were to view the UN actions as an attack on Sri Lanka rather than on Rajapaksas, they will cave in and fall in line with the chauvinists like they did during the wartime. Such a situation will create a siege mentality favouring the Rajapaksas!

            Whichever way one looks at it, the predicament of the Tamils is extremely precarious. The NPC Council along with Justice Wigneswaren form a sort of buffer or a check if you like though it is flimsy. Only hope is that, the UN does prevaricate and be decisive executing the Resolution correctly and forcefully. If it were to drag on with listless overtures emanating from the UN, it will be a disaster!

              “they will cave in and fall in line with the chauvinists like they did during the wartime. “

              So if the moderates didnt cave in with “Chauvinists” the war would still be going ne? Are u saying ending war is bad, Mr. Tamil Chauvinist?

                “A chauvinist is someone who blindly and enthusiastically believes in the superiority of his cause or people.”

                I believe in egalitarianism and democracy. As it stands now, if one supports MR means one supports a lopsided majoritarian rule; this is exactly what you are about!

                All Sinhala were lumped together when the war was on because the Sinhala moderates took the view that the LTTE must be defeated militarily in order to resolve the Tamil issue politically and rebuild. I had no problems with that at all but astonished as to their silence when opposite is afoot. It has come to a stage that, the Tamils cannot wait for the Sinhala moderates (you are not included) to rise up; we need to find other ways to win our rights back. You can shout and screen all you like until you build a form of mental capacity to amicably resolve the Tamil issue, it will be useless dealing with you guys!

                  What is your definition of a sinhala moderate? A Sinhalese who bends to everything the west says and whitewashes what the terrorist tamils say all the time? Is that your definition of a Sinhala moderate, happy to not to belong to that tribe.

                  For your information I have never ever voted for mahinda, voted for Ranil in 2005 who contested on a peacetalks platform while you wanted a boycott of election, and didn’t vote MR in 2010 and won’t be voting UPFA in the PC elections.
                  So are you atleast found some humanity to be accountable for supporting a terror outfit for 30 years and prolonging human suffering? Quite high talk about democracy and egalitarian societal values coming from you when not ready to take responsibility for prolonging SL war.

                  What is wrong in the perception that LTTE should be defeated militarily? Isn’t the defeat of LTTE good for everyone in SL? DO you want people in north to live under prabhakaran and war going on while suicide bombs in south continue with massacres in border villages? Is that what you wanted? So how could SL finally see some hope of peace without militarily defeating LTTE?

                  And based on your definition of chauvanists, many tamils here including sivathasan and little wiggie who write here are supreme tamil chavuanists. (including you!) .

                  How do you want Sinhalese to rise up against this govern when you are attacking the country using MR as a scapegoat? We are left with nothing but to safeguard our country with whatever the government we have. It needed to defeat the LTTE to stop the violence and it needs to remove the LTTE rump overseas to finish the job.

        Exactly US pressurize SL for its own interests.
        India votes against SL for its own interests. Thinking they would change and act according to them is futile. SL should have a thorough strategy both domestic and international.

            Really? Where do I see Sinhalese displaying their majority arrogance? Do Sinhalese block Tamils from getting education? Getting jobs? doing businesses? Owning lands? Sinhalese didn’t do anything even when the tamil leaders (who once supported terrorism against them) passed anti SL resolutions. It is the same Sinhalese that fed and look after your kith and kin in north when you were funding the cannonballs for the terrorists.

            When I asked you wheher u take the accountability for supporting a terrorist org and prolonging human suffering you didn’t have a dime of self-respect and humanity to accept that. We have no problem with a power devolution to the north that is why NPC elections went without any hassle last year (compare that to 1987). The problem we have is not with power devolution but the ones using the power (TNA former LTTE proxies dancing to the tune of LTTE rump overseas) for their own anti SL objectives.

            For 30 years we wasted time, money and human life when we engage with LTTE in peace talks because some pandithayas in SL and the barbaric human rights groups in west thought ‘negotiations is the way to peace’. It took 30 years of bloodshed for the people in SL to understand negotiations with terrorists have no gains. The same way TNA ruling NPC is a futile exercise for any stability and reconciliation for SL. And this comes from a person who used to admire little wiggie and hoped for a TNA victory in NPC.

      Do you expect gov to give more powers than 13+ to a PC that passes anti Lankan resolutions, engage in cheap politics, and controlled by LTTE rump abroad?

        You have lost your marbles Such. TNA published an election manifesto for the NPC elections and they are sticking by it! The rajapaksas are anti Sri Lankan but pro Sinhala Buddhists! What the TNA is doing is to bring about good governance through out the nation and if you cannot see this you are totally blinkered!

          Hick hick hick… LOL

          Was this before or after they declared LTTE was the sole representative of Tamils? Did this manifesto of TNA exist when LTTE was around? Did these men of high standing stood by their morals when LTTE suicide bombers, makalali paddi were roaming around?

          Besides, how difficult is it for a group to write down their demands thinking about no one but themselves? LTTE too struck to their demands till death?

            Navin,

            Please act as a grown up for goodness sake! TNA had to survive under the LTTE; survive they did. Post LTTE, in a short space of time, TNA has organised and become an efficient political force with integrity. The organisation of the NPC and the calibre of the personnel is indicative that the TNA is at different level to the MR administration.

            Tell me why is it that the TNA passing a resolution in support of the 3rd UN resolution is deemed as anti-Sri Lankan but MR’s visit to Geneva during the UNP administration was not? Is it it do with ethnicity?

              TNA integrity? Then what is that [Edited out] woman Sasitharan doing in TNA?

              I quote DBS Jeyaraj…

              “The LTTE led by Ezhilan then went into the church premises and began dragging out the youths and children in their early teens. When some youths resisted the LTTE opened fire and killed four persons. Over 500 youngsters of both sexes,children and able bodied men were marched out at gun point and compelled to board buses brought by the tigers.They were taken to the battlefront.About 300 older men and women were left behind at Valainjarmadam wailing and sobbing over the loss of their loved ones. Ezhilan was present on the spot from beginning to end supervising and directing the operation.”

              “The third incident was also at Valainjarmadam at a place called “Kurusady santhi” or Crucifix junction. Ezhilan and former LTTE administrative division head Thangan were leading a tream of tigers who had captured a group of civilians trying to flee to Govt controlled areas.Ezhilan was questioning and reprimanding the people as traitors for trying to escape when a young woman with an infant and two small children responded by saying that her children had no milk and that was why she was trying to escape. A heated argument broke out between Ezhilan and the young woman who accused the LTTE of being inhuman and queried “Neengal Manisar Illayaa”? (are you people not human). At this point Ezhilan whipped out his pistol and placing it on the woman’s forehead fired twice killing her in cold blood.”

              You think Anandhi Sasitharan was not aware of these acts?

              And you say TNA has integrity. I say they don’t even have a loincloth on them.

                Navin,

                I have asked you a question and you did not answer!

                “Tell me why is it that the TNA passing a resolution in support of the 3rd UN resolution is deemed as anti-Sri Lankan but MR’s visit to Geneva during the UNP administration was not? Is it it do with ethnicity?”

                Please answer

                Ananthy S had a choice; she could have aligned with Tamil Congress that is being headed by Gajan Ponnoampalam that fosters separatism or joining the TNA that stands for a United Sri Lanka. Ananthy has chosen to join the TNA and moreover she has publicly denounced violence choosing the democratic path. However, if Ananthy were to deviate from the party line and the TNA hierarchy does not take action, then I will join hands with you to criticise TNA. Hence, the integrity of the party is maintained. If you can accept someone like Karuna who allegedly murdered 600 policemen in cold blood, I am sure you should not be critical of TNA accepting a wife of an LTTE man who is no more!

                DBS Jeyaraj wrote plenty about the LTTE exposing their shenanigans but miserably failing to do the same with the Rajapaka regime! I personally do not need to read dbsj’s articles to know and be critical about the LTTE. I have been utterly critical about the LTTE for years. Five years have elapsed since the demise of the LTTE and I wish you do use them in mitigation when you cannot win an argument as it is self defeating.

                  Tell me why is it that the TNA passing a resolution in support of the 3rd UN resolution is deemed as anti-Sri Lankan but MR’s visit to Geneva during the UNP administration was not? Is it it do with ethnicity?”

                  ———————————–

                  I have no interest in stating the obvious.

                  US is paranoid about losing its global dominance. To sustain their power US needs to interfere in the affairs of other nations either directly or indirectly through UN. US concern is getting a foot hold in the politics of Asia to keep China at bay. Both US and India want Chinese involvement in Sri Lanka in all spheres curtailed.

                  They are looking for avenues to get involved. Luckily for them we have our own Trojan horse ready to invite them in on a red carpet. Making matters easy for TNA, Rajapaksha has left us defenseless by abusing the law and order in this country not to mention appointing his cronies and incompetent fools to important positions. This is what Dayan has pointed out.

                  US will deliver TNA justice and more because they need to placate TNA to legitimize their involvement here. What did US do to justice Goldstone’s report? They will craft panels, committees, courts and reports to suite their global agenda in much the same way MR is doing it locally. Is this what you call justice? Anyone who stands in the way will be picked out through calculated means. Justice Goldstone was one.

                  This is not serving the interests of this country (and certainly not Sinhala people) but that of US and LTTE rump.

                  If one thinks US is deploying all these assets from diplomats to ambassadors around the world to bring in a resolution on Sri Lanka to serve Tamil interests he is a fool.

                  As much as justice can be abused locally, it can be abused internationally. I’m sure you have heard that justice must not only be done but it must be seen to be done. Do you see US/UN doing justice in Palestine/Israel conflict? Do you see them doing justice in Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Libya, Iraq, Iran, Egypt, Syria and now Ukraine? If those are any precedent, why should anyone believe that they will do justice here?

                  Those who are hell bent on investigations are not the people who actually suffered during the war. They are not the people who had their children/husbands disappeared. These are the people who funded the war.

                  Those who seek investigations want to justify an independent state for Tamils by establishing that Tamils have been subject to genocide. US was able to establish that Iraq had WMD when it had none through political manipulation. Now they want the same done here. Taking revenge from MR/GR/SF is only a secondary objective.

                  Even before we came to last stages of war, more than 70,000 people had already died or disappeared due to this conflict. Why no accountability for them? Where is accountability for terrorism financing for 30 years? How come Balasigham was able to live in London? How come many LTTE activists are able to gain political asylum in North America/Europe when they quickly deny visas to military on suspicion of involvement in rights abuses? Isn’t it a joke that a person suspected of terrorist activities can get entry to North America/Europe and continue to engage is such activates but military personnel cannot gain entry on mere suspicion/allegations?

                  How many people from Visvanathan Rudrakumaran to Rayappu Joseph to S. J. Emmanuel who are at the forefront seeking an international investigation against GOSL (or both sides if you believe that), have had their picture taken with LTTE leader Prabakaran?

                  Nit picking on where you want accountability and justice is not justice but mockery of justice. That is a clear indication that US/UN are not here for justice but something else.

                  You say Ananthy S joined TNA and not Ponnoampalam’s party because she has now metamorphosized from being the wife of a dreadful terrorist into this heroin seeking justice for war widows. She joined TNA for the same reason all beauty queens and sportsmen are joining SLFP in the South. Everyone wants to join the winning party. You think she would have got the votes that she got had she been with Ponnoampalam?

                  Reconciliation is not just about Tamil demands (accountability, power devolution, …) It should also address demands of other communities especially the Sinhala majority – that is if you are interested in “reconciliation”. That is why writing a self centered manifesto and sticking to it will not get you reconciliation. Is TNA unaware of this? hardly! Yet you speak so highly of them for doing exactly that.

                    “Both US and India want Chinese involvement in Sri Lanka in all spheres curtailed”

                    So navin,tell us how this should be resolved for srilanka.You have very accurately identified the main problem and the reason for Srilankas current woes internationally,but what is your solution?

                    Finding solutions is much more difficult than finding the reason for the problem.To help you on the way i will give a scenario.

                    The scenario is this.Take a large company in the world.The largest that tower above the rest are exxon mobile and apple with market capitalisations of over 400 billion USD each as at may 2013,which is about 3 times the GDP of srilanka on a purchasing parity basis.

                    Now if you are making the decisions for apple how would you do it?There is a board of directors and major decisions are approved by them.Who are these directors.They represent the major shareholders.If you and i have shares they could not care a rats arse for us and what we think or feel.We are what we call sleeping partners who don’t know what they are discussing and what is happening in apple.Shareholders who have more than 50% of the shares can get together and control apple.Others can have a sleep.

                    Now take the global economy total GDP and imagine it is apple.The main shareholders of this global economy Total GDP on a purchasing parity basis value are

                    1.US-19%
                    2.EU-18%
                    3.China-15%
                    4.India-5.5%
                    5.japan-5.4%
                    6.Russia-3%
                    7.Brazil-2.8%
                    8.Mexico-2%
                    9.S.Korea-1.9%
                    10.Canada-1.7%

                    Now go back to i think 1947 when the Yalta conference was held and the world was divvied up into 3 zones of influence with roosevelt,stalin and churchill meeting.Did anybody else have any say in what they discussed and decided about the rest of the world.60 years later the globe has changed a lot.Obama,Putin and cameron can’t sit and decide how to carve up the world into their spheres of influence.They lack the power to do that.There is anew elephant in the room China with 15% of shares while Russia with its measly 3% and UK with its 2.7%(I did not give it in the above figures because it is a part of the EU)Can both go and sleep.

                    Today if 3 guys sit at the table it will be Obama,EU president,and the Chinese president and they can carve out there own spheres of influence in this world just as roosevelt,stalin and churchill did.It would be in their own interest not to clash with each other and make the the decisions with consensus with a win win situation for all three.For example if they decide to carve out srilanka with the southern and western part for china,the northern and eastern part for the US and the rest for the EU as overseas territories then a immense benefit for them but if they clash over srilanka an immense loss to them.

                    So let me know whether we will become the goose that laid the 3 golden eggs for them one day.BTW Srilanka’s share of the global pie is only .15% and definitely we are sleeping partner and nobody cares a rats arse about what we feel or think about it.Decisions will be made and gone ahead above our heads.Our great strategic location will end up as a double edged sword.IF we were in a location like bhutan nobody will care what happens to us,but now everyone just like for the last 2 thousand years are interested because we have always slap bang first stop on the main shipping route from europe to china.

                    So let me know in this backdrop what your solution is to us being carved up one day like a piece of steak?Our donkey rulers have left the door open just like when we became a colony.

    Our one time ambassador Dayan de Silva de Jayatilleka is a spent force and already written off. His laments are just ignored by all and sundry, even if they have some sense. He is always talking about 2009 and claiming sole victory. We know the fact at that time, just after the war, no one knew what really happened, except USA and India. They all congratulated SL and kept quiet without getting accused for their involvements. This man DJ is claiming all the victory at UNHRC for himself, just like Sarath Fonseka claimed about the murderous ‘victory’ of 2009.’ So Gotha pakaya got mad and put him in jail and we all know the rest of the story. DJ is just wasting his time writing bull, it’s time he give up writing..No one is here to appreciate his confused theories.

    “The current Sri Lankan approach of regarding the Indo-Lanka Accord and the 13th amendment not as a shield but rather as impediments to be shuffled off or shrunk is dangerously counterproductive.”

    Thats where all the problems started for srilanka.If it was a chess game i will say very bad move not implementing an accord already signed with our large neighbour and still expecting it to ward off attacks on us.

    now with India stepping aside from shielding, it is dawning on the modayas that they have exposed themselves to a full frontal assault by the west while jaya is getting ready for a assault on the flank through a UN referendum for separation.

    Ah, the acrobat is back again.

    He is delivering flying kicks this time round – “intercept her argument in mid-flight and shoot it down in flames by the simple expedient of pledging “

    I am sure that Navi must be reading with interest his advise to the how to “decapitate” her arguments – effortlessly. With dumb India he suggest the ” attempt to win over hearts and minds”

    I guess he must be assuming that those who receive his advise like the late president Premadasa (who armed the LTTE on his advise, and payed for it with dear life) are dumb and ready to die – while fantasizing about his “strategic” advisorial capabilities.

    Dayan, you are better off performing a few acrobatics stunts in front of the Savoy Theater – while the vast majority wait in queue to watch “Geneva 2014”

      what makes you think that modi will like manmohan meekly accept tamils into tamilnadu.Read about cyprus when the arrogant greeks decided to make it hell to the turks in nicosia.the cyprus solution will be the most likely one this ends up with if the modayas among the sinhalese continue to dominate their community without allowing the intelligent ones to guide them.indian army will only takeover the north and east but the threat of taking more territory like the north central etc will be like a sword of damocles if sinhalese give trouble to tamils living outside the north east and india has to settle them somewhere.You can be damn sure my friend that india will not settle the tamils in india but in srilanaka.

          Sach,hope you see the news of russia going into crimea to ‘help’ their russian brethren.Any excuse now will do to get into a neighbouring country if you feel your security can be threatened by it one day.Instead of defending those modayas,because from your comments i can see you are not one,please advise them to be careful and not give such excuses to our giant neighbour.A united country will keep of foreigners while a divided one will welcome them as happened when due to the fighting between bhuvenekabahu the king of kotte and his brother mayadunne of sitawaka,kotte king asked portuguese for protection and the rest is history.

          To make a mistake is human.To repeat a mistake is a modaya.

          Ask the man who looks like a buffalo herdsman to at least listen to the intelligent educated people without suffering from a complex and redo his policies towards the tamils and muslims.

          Give maximum devolution to tamils in a step by step process building trust between the communities along the way,culminating in a federal system one day like in malaysia.

          Tell the man who looks like a hannibal in silence of the lambs to stop hollering his head off about china and interfering with all the decisions like as if he is the defacto president.The more he hollers about china the more we are going to have to deal with the indians and the US with china missing in action in east asia.

            1. Russia didn’t enter Ukraine to safeguard their Russian speakers. US and EU toppled Ukranian gover to secure their interests and Russia invaded Ukraine to secure their interests. And if your referring to india in 1987 they too came here to secure their own interests. And they are secured. India doesn’t want to invade SL for that, simply having few agreements with SL gov is enough. That is why SL doesn’t act tough when TN fishermen steal your fish. Don’t hope for such a thing. And TN has proven without doubt why India shouldn’t entertain separatists in SL.
            2. You need nt teach me the importance of a united county I have always supported it.
            3. May be the gover has reasons not to listen to Dayan 100%. I too share the view that Dayan’s fear mongering with respect to india is misplaced. Yet I accept SL gov need to change a lot of things.
            4. Power devolution for tamils is a must and I have been supporting it from the beginning. But how can we do it when the NPC is being controlled b LTTE rump overseas and when Wiggie is a nutcase.
            5. Even if china is no more we will have to deal with US. US is coming here with an agenda of theirs. You were once fooled by india why betting again with US?
            6. And remember this very well, with time SL will be a different place, it will no more be a Sinhala-tamil issue and we will live in a different world. And many undesirable elements would creep into SL if we have this problem that long. The sooner we find solutions the better for both Sinhalese and tamils.

              Then do it in a step by step process.First implement the 13th amendment in full.That will kill 2 birds with one stone,keeping india quiet and reducing the wind for the sails of the LTTE rump.

              “The sooner we find solutions the better for both Sinhalese and tamils. So dont let LTTE rump to worsen the situation”

              Nothing to find.the solution is there for all to see.It is not being implemented.Power devolution is the only solution.As for the LTTE rump you mention,whether head or rump they are obtuse characters with one track mind eelam only and waste of time talking with them and anyway nobody can control them or tell them what to do or not to do.We have to hope that they are more and more marginalised like the JVP when devolution is expanded more and more and they become irrelevant.To keep them occupied it would be a good thing to let them enter the political process and commit hara kiri when the votes keep dwindling at every election.

              “2. You need nt teach me the importance of a united county I have always supported it.”

              I don’t think you or most sinhalese realise the implications of a disunited country because you are supporting a regime that does not believe in one and actions speak louder than words and every year they are more and more alienating the tamils and muslims.So how can you say you know about its importance when your mindset and actions are the exact opposite.We tamils had no choice with that mole head prabha because if we told him that indo lanka accord and devolution of powers is better than eelam he would have bumped us off and we can’t even vote him out,unlike you.

            Yes, you are dead right.

            Rajapakshe – Modaya has made the biggest failure to the country.

            He should learn to listen and then react.
            He thought so long stupid folks are deceivable, everything would work out in favour of the nation. He did not grasp that the country belong to Interntional community. So we have to work respecting the standards. Lack of broader wisdom has brought him to this level.

            Those who have studied the facts clearly, may know devolution power will not separate the country. They the diplomatic missions of the regime should have studied it in Switzerland, Germany and several other models closely rather than trying to paint a picture supporting to hard nuts like Champika Ranakawa, Burwansa and the like minorities among the nation. Latter are cancerous. And Regime should finally focus on marginalizing unwanted, nationalistic folks that stand on the way of peace in the country.

            Shankar,

            what I feel is – awarness programs on devolution to all folks across the country is essential to accurate the thoughts and minds of many on the issues. Having spoken with even lcoal academics , I am telling you there are a large number of the country are misunderstood the word “psychology” with “psychiartry”.
            The view towards ” devolution of power” is totally misunderstood by many across the nation. They feel, that the rulers are going to divide the nation by offering a part of the land to the tamils or other minorities. As I am well aware, even small electrorate comparably the size of lanken ones are or even small regional units in Switzerland are governed by own constitutions. Within cantons, they have several other units that take their decisions by their own. However the police and land powers, you need to discuss and find a proper soltuions. Similarly,Germany´s federal system function flawless.

            So what is imperative is to change the wrong view of our people by giving them a better medicine. Medicine would only be through regular discussion village, electrorate, district, province and parliament. This can be initiated through the mediation and schools, universities and other bodies within 6 months.. Dont you think so ?

              sama,you hit the nail right on the head.That is the main problem.Sinhalese people just don’t understand the benefits of devolution.They think of it as a threat only,not as a thread that is used to stitch up two sections together so that they don’t fall apart.Your idea of educating them is a good one,but too much of time must not be spent doing it.A stitch in time saves nine.

    Robert Black made a deal with Lankan SOGL to support the war. When he noticed that Nambiar and China was controlling the war they wanted to turn the direction of the war. But Obama and EU was so preoccupied with the Bank Failures and Economic Downturn in 2009. Right after helping the war, when other members of UNHRC noticed that the western world is turning against that. The false promise given to SG of UN by the king also counted here. At that time America was still viewed as Bush’s country. So they did not wanted to believe the western countries. They believed GOSL. DJ spending here a lot of time to convince Mahinda is good But the UNPer G.L.P is the black sheep. The man is not only a slave, in the 2012 he made the hotel to be cleaned just because of the Kings telephone call. Blaming somebody like him for what ever happening at UNHRC,Geneva is a fake talk of DJ. That is really funny.

    Other one is, he is trying woe beautiful actress Jayalalitha and Navi Pillay by repeatedly talking about them even in unrelated area for them. UN Expert’s report was not written by Navi Pillay. Internal Inquiry was conducted by the peoples appointed by SG of UN. None of these investigators ever commented about DJ’s excellent performance at Geneva. They just blamed the way GOSL conducted the brutal war. The internal Inquiry report pointed it of the UN failure to act even after end of war rather than praising DJ for cheating and hiding the truth. Now DJ trying to convince the readers that all these are done by Navi Pillay and Jayalalitha. It looks like DJ is very fond of talking about these women, but keeping a little bit lower voice about Navi Pillay because of the fear of Mervyn Silva. Other than that I can’t see any reason how can DJ connect Jayalalitha with UNHRC.

    Western Goverment Talking about Accountability. But they helped GOSL with hope getting thier share from GOSL. They want, China to be out, country to be open for them too, trade law to match the international Norms so that they can invest without fear, They want the Royals out of the Templetree house,They want the law and Oerder maintained for thier safty when they come in. Until the GOSL get back on all these promissed it indicated during the war time, they will hang on to the Accountability, which according to them Mahindha killed 40 thousand Tamils(actual number is more than 300,000. Minimum 500,000)

    This guy DJ knows it all and keeps stressing the important role he played in Geneva. What a hypocrite and chameleon- hopes to get some crumbs from the family. Fiddling the tune to suit his ego and does not want an international investigation into the war crimes committed by his masters. If as claimed by the family no war crimes were committed, then why not allow an international investigation and let foreign journalists to report on what happened. Why is there suppression of the media and abductions and murders of those decent human being who express dissent? MR is defrauding the citizens of the country by misrepresentation, outright lies, withholding of facts, omission of facts, inaccurate statements, appointing people who have no skills to important jobs and robbing the citizens for increasing family wealth . Time for an impeachment of the president. DJ, GL and other scumbags will need to look out.

    Because of GL we as Sri Lankans have to face such tragedy. This is because GL has no capacity to influence the World Leaders. Mr Hameed was not a Graduate but he was popular among the World Leaders. Late Mr Kathirkamar too was popular. But GL very sad state of affairs.

    What if,DJ was hoodwinked by the Indians in to including the full “implementation of the 13A” in Geneva 2009.
    It now seems,that the so called win in 2009 has become the noose around SL neck. Because, if it was a win in 2009, as claimed, we shouldn’t be in this mess right now with resolutions passed against us in 2012 and 2013 and another in 2014.

    It is the easy to say give what they ask and your troubles will go away. of course they will give up the call for international investigations if the 13A is given in full with land and police powers and that is precisely why this is being dragged on. Some even say that police and land powers given to the PC’S are nothing much but they never say,if that is so, why they insist on this nothing much so much!
    Already the NPC is behaving(at least trying)like a sovereign country passing resolutions beyond the limits of the 13A.

    Dr.NR says the 13A is designed to fail but we don’t see him campaign to abolish it! instead want to have it in full as a ‘moonstone’ to Eelam stairway.

    Dayan,

    I am sure you know that you are trying to defend the un defendable and in the process making yourself a fool.
    Let us analyse some of your arguments and let the readers ( I am afraid I am not talking about the 20 million Racists ) form a Judgement but sadly those readers are a tiny minority and don’t count for anything. Therefore the solution to the problems is not going to come from within. If proof was needed it is there for every one to see and 4 years on MR has no interest whatsoever in addressing the Grievances of the Tamils.
    The World headed by USA has seen MR for what he is and are determined to address the issue head on. Up to now Sri Lanka has been shielded by Traitor India and that cover is gone and with the installation of Modi & Jeyalalitha MR has no place to hide. As I have said many times India
    has total Jurisdiction over Sri Lanka.

    It is not surprising when you say that ” The difference between Navi Pillay and Jayalalithaa is that the former is wrong on the most important thing but right on some things while the latter is wrong on everything she says about Sri Lanka.

    But the World sees it differently and by that I mean the Countries that matter. Not Zimbabwe, Pakistan Iran few others.

    I am sure you know that MR is a liar. Only the other day he said that No Temples , Mosques or Churches are destroyed and it is all a big lie. The following day hard line Monks went on the rampage and attacked a Mosque. This is Truth & Reconciliation Sri Lankan style or shall I say Mahintha style.

    India is the only country which can make Mahintha listen and the Iron Lady is more than a match for MR and he will bite the dust after May.

    Dayan:

    I know you have a hotline to MR. Why don’t you tell him that BJP has just announced that within 3 months of being elected they will resolve the Tamil Issue once and for all In Sri Lanka.
    You can then complain to BJP that Jeyalalitha is a liar.

    [As if SL has an option.. what Dj says is a tack tick move to avoid any resolution imposed sanctions ect. In SL a great degree of violation has is taking place.No rule of Law and proper justice. it must be establish asap as per pillays recommendation. is it so hard do the right thing for the people in the country. the war crime whether agreed or not has its own face. any country that battle a brutal war will end in some kind of crimes. thats not only relevant to SL. The issue of war crime can be kept a side if the rest is been achieved. no one can rejects every thing in pillays observation as a head of UN.so one must agree for the doable and rejects the rest. ]
