International Community Patience On Sri Lanka Could Wear Thin: US

The U.S. has warned Sri Lanka that the patience of the international community could wear thin if the Rajapaksa Government does not take steps to address the issue of human rights, accountability and reconciliation process.

“The United States and all of our friends across the international community have underscored the need for Sri Lanka to make progress on issues of reconciliation, on issues of accountability and on issues of human rights — ongoing concerns about the political space and human rights in the country,” Assistant Secretary of State for South and Central Asia Nisha Desai Biswal told reporters.

“We are committed to working with our friends in Sri Lanka to see that progress,” Ms. Biswal said in response to a question, adding that the US would like to see Sri Lanka address these issues through its own processes.

“We hope that that can in fact be the case. I think that the patience of the international community if real progress is not seen, particularly on issues of accountability, that patience will start to wear thin. And so we urge our friends in Sri Lanka to use the opportunity to show some concrete steps that their own, you know, processes have yielded,” Ms. Biswal said.

“Through the LLRC (Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission), there are a set of recommendations. I think that those are exactly the points that we’d like to see progress on, and we’ve encouraged them to do that,” the top US official said.

    If and when Sri Lanka implements LLRC recommendations they would claim that LLRC wasn’t independent enough and an international commission is needed. That has been the hallmark of our separatists and their western backers.

      LLRC is certainly not enough because the ruling regime , who stand accused, were the ones to create it . This is like the accused being the prosecutor and judge in the case against him.

        What? You make it sound like the government and the tigers were two equal entities. The ruling regime is a democratically elected one, it can legally maintain an army and is duty bound to disarm armed/separatist organizations.

          Democratically elected means nothing when it is Majoritarian tyranny, i.e. 2 wolves and a sheep deciding on what’s for lunch. –Since Sinahala are the majority the masses will support whoever is the most Chauvinistic, why else did soo many Sinahala leaders campaign on Sinhala supremacy long before the Tigers even exsisted.–A regime that is guilt of gross human rights violations will never incriminate itself and hold itself to justice.

            Sounds like total crap coming out from a racist who don’t know how to coexist with the majority. Sri Lanka unlike any other country went into peace negotiations with a criminal separatist organization. Not only that Sri Lanka devolved power into provinces in a move to accommodate the separatists. These are facts, unlike your bigoted rhetoric.

              Sri Lanka for several decades has been a Sinhala Chauvinist run country. After the War Fonseka essentially confirmed the Sinhala Supremacist viewpoint of the elite and the masses who have elected successive Sinhala governments, that minorities are guests and should know their place. — Why am I not surprised that a Sinhala Supremacist such as yourself would resort to calling others racist. To you lot anything short of Sinhala Supremacasy is racist. You will always play the victim card and trot out the Tiger bogeyman in an attempt to justify anti Tamil pogroms and Sinhala supremacist and genocidal aims.–It you Sinhala Nationalists who started the war with your genocidcal mentality and belief that you are sons of the soil. You Sinahala Supremacists still think you must rule Lanka, this is the root cause of the problem .

            You are ofcourse talking about the demanded ‘Equal Representation’ sought from the colonial masters before independence in order to deny the democratic rights of the Sinhala. It seems that the Western backers of the Bahrain regime don’t like democracy in Bahrain and elsewhere where they maintain minority governments don’t like it either.
            If the governemnt was guilty of human rights violations as alleged the proof has to be provided to the legitimate authorities. The Tigers came into being because of a collective avarice for land that DID NOT belong to them.

      One should ask Assistant Secretary Biswal how thin her patience is with Israel.

      Then you would realize at once, this has nothing to do with HR or good governance in Sri Lanka.

      These hypocrites are in it for Geo-Politics.

      That said hypocrisy is an Institution in International politics. Sri Lanka should act accordingly with maturity & composure.

      Corrupt & lawless Rajapassa regime is unable to carry out that task. Sri Lanka will end up paying the price. To the delight of utopic Ealamistas.

      …………….. …………………………………………

      Despite all the criticism of Mahinda Rajapaksa, he should be given the credit, even though pushed by others, to follow the Sir Winston Churchill Strategy and put an end to the Vellupillai Prabakaran Terrorists….. Unfortunately, they are stuck in Limbo due to the real crimes and due to the Sinhala Buddhist Racism, that is a good part of the problem along with the Tamil Racism………………………….

    This is what I read this morning.

    We waited and waited why the US stays silent while UK is setting alarms on the bugger´s administration.
    There should be a close connection between the silence of Indians /the US

    a) US not questioning properly about the war crimes – with let alone ones like Shravendra SIlva, as one of the front runners of those killing fileds in the war end in 2009

    b) The statements of US gov sounds to be not powerful enough, though Brit PM has already set their deadline to March 14

    Come on US!!!! Stop the spreading of words and do something in action. First of all, haul the JHU & its 1000 hidden units embedded in temples and street Buddha Statue unit committees comprising IRCs/Thugs/Drug Peddlers/Politicians/Monks and looters.———————————-

    These are the guys who are keeping the Anagarika Terror alive and kicking. Ven. Somey started the racial attacks in recent times until he died of heart attack in Russia. Then his devil gangs came up with JHU the umbrella org., of the racists and mass murderers. Its they who are reborn under different names in different times. The latest avatar is JHU.——————————————————————

    Once you take JHU into account of war crimes against Humanity, this country will heave a sigh of relief. The other skin heads who wants Anagarika Evils be implemented by force will back off.————————————————
    JHU is the prime evil that hijack the govt., thinking and the policies of terror implimented by force on the entire multi-ethnic, multi-religious population.

    As a bargain for their evil to be implemented by the successive govts., they ignore the corruption by the governing party. Any crook belonging to the Anagarika Terror is exempt from scrutiny to check on corruption and murder.

    Do the US and its friends constitute the ‘International community’? And what right do these countries have to demand that Sri Lanka do this and do that? Isn’t it the role of the UN to be concerned with these issues – not for individual countries, no matter how powerful they are? In recent years, especially after the Bush presidencies the US has sought to bypass the UN, the world body, and pursue international issues on its own or through various organisations it has created for this purpose, like the International Crisis Group. For all its pious posturings the US is one big bully and in fact an international pariah.

        You are right Srilal,
        God Almighty eternally uses one evil to destroy another evil. Because, the good one’s cannot undertake evil job of annihillation. So, Like the Iron is used to smack Iron, Evil is used to destroy the worst evil at present.———————————————– So, MR & Company is the ultimate evil that is causing all the trouble for the local population, irrespective of Race & Religion.——————-So, if US can do something of the sort they did to contain the evils of Japan during World War II. They surely can do something even better to destroy the Ethno-Religious Fascism which is a Multi-Headed Snake reveling on innocent blood of humanity living in this island, once and for all.—————————- Since the JHU+Somey gang with their skewed philosophy of the Anal-Goraka (Anagarika) spooky faced dark Vampire’s have launched many attack on all religions including the Buddhism which is non-violence. All must come together in unison to see these Vampires are caught and burnt alive (metaphorical) like what they did to others by the World Powers.—————————————————–We the ordinary people who are the real victims must enjoy the BBQ done by the ICJ-Hague on these criminals.

      It is not a secret that UN system is over powered by US! For example: UN system knows that drone attacks kills many civilians, why cannot it stop it!!Personally, I think this is a very cowardly act by US!!

      The world needs a powerful media network, that is not controlled by US and UK which can tell the world the truth!! As majority of media networks are pro US.

      The US needs to “stop” invading other countries, purely for acquiring natural resources!!!!

      And as for the Tamils, please understand that “International Community” are not in love with you, but have their own agendas!!!
      If you think through their agendas you can get what you wish for… It will happen only in your dreams!!!!

      The world will be at peace when we can correct these evil!!
      We must never become “terrorists” to correct these evil from earth!!!
      We must educate the society and the children of theses facts and make the governments understand that what people desire is peace on earth and not conflict!!!

        what do you call CCTV (Chinese TV ), Al jazeera (Arabic) , RTV (Russian) ,NDTV (Indian) ?

        Al Jazeera is pro Arabic news station and always highlights the excess of US attacks (Drones) in Muslim countries and never stop condemning any of these atrocities .

        “It is not a secret that UN system is over powered by US!”

        may be partially true , but China & Russia do the same double game when it suits them.

    thanks united States of America.!!!.
    It is a matter of time to complete the existence of Tamil history in Tamil Eelam.We are doing everything to complete the mission.
    All we need for the time being is some delaying and diversionary tactics so that buying time to complete the mission.
    America you are great! including great Briton.
    China, Russia and India are very decisive. They provide everything to complete our mission BUT they do it openly.
    But for western style of approach America and great Briton are very good example.
    Thanks for Banning LTTE( the only group with weapons to protect their people) and providing any kind of weapons through back doors.
    Now help LLRC( rejected by Tamils)and making some statements while we Srilankans rapidly progressing in completing the mission.

    Please do not raise any questions about the colonisation of militray in Tamil areas. Currently the ratio is 1 army force to 5 civilian in Tamil area. As I said this will become one to none in the near future.
    Until then we need your support to buy time
    Keep it up.
    Same time try to meet the so called Tamil representative in Tamil Eelam. give them a hope without letting them know that they are being slowly eradicated. That is the style we believe as you might have seen the way we conducted the war with LTTE. Asked them to surrender with many promises from countries like you and UN, and later massacred them.
    Perfect way to win the war???

Next they consider Nisha to be north Indian though she and NaMo are both from the Deccan. Finally, since she was selected by both Kerry and Obama over seniority of men like Atul Keshap, whom she has stolen, away to be her deputy- She says “No person succeeds by themselves. They succeed on the shoulders of their friends and colleagues who support them, who counsel them, who advise them through their journey.”

    If they are itching – they should be encouraged to do it. Because if they do it, they will transform her into a Tigress – the very same way the transformed the docile Tamils of Sri Lanka.

    But then, they will start wondering who bit their ass off.
