No Fire Zone Was Chilling, Tweets British PM

British Prime Minister David Cameron who watched the controversial documentary No Fire Zone by Callum Macrae over the weekend, tweeted that he would have “serious questions” to raise with Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa when he arrived in Colombo for the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) later this week.

Cameron said on his official Twitter account that he had seen the documentary that alleges to show footage giving evidence of serious war crimes committed by the Sri Lankan armed forces that it had been a “chilling documentary.”

Amid pressure for the British Prime Minister to boycott CHOGM in protest against Colombo’s terrible human rights record, Cameron and members of his Government have repeatedly assured the Parliament and the media that they would be going to Sri Lanka to “talk tough” in person to the Rajapaksa regime.

        David Cameron is a Disgrace to the entire British Race. Earlier the Bugger was ever ready to invade Syria at Obama’s call. Thanks to Puttin the plan was shelved. Now the Bugger after seeing the Channel 4 gruesome murder of Issapriya is visiting the very Murderer. What a conscience the Bugger has? and also shameless at that.

          What can David Cameron do when he meets MR – even 1-to-1. MR will deny everything – while smiling deceptively. Then he will promise
          various things and wait until Cameron leaves on the 16th – and
          disregard everything he said and assured. That has been his record
          so far. As to Channel-4’s incident at the A’pura rail-station if there is pressure from London MR will provide them with a plane to go to Jaffna – and win credit. Simultaneously, the army will be asked to make things difficult for the team. This can’t
          go for too long.

          Have you ever heard of the image of a Secretary of a Ministry all over the CHOGM route staring down at you from flag-poles – along with that of the President. What has happened to the decent system of Govt we had??

          It is just they want the summit to be held.

          Whether the host is multi criminal or anything else they seem to be not considering in this regard.

          May be they the british know the stands of IC (non-CW european countries just laught at british monarchy).

      Mr. Prime Minister,

      I believe you. It was indeed chilling.

      However, do not restrict your horizon to 2No Fire Zone” in Sri Lanka only. Then you will look like a narrow minded, hypocrite. Trying to balance political realities in London. Or even using Sri Lanka for your survival.

      Move on and watch “Taking of Fallujah, Iraq” by USA, your ally. And “Cleaning up Taliban in Swart Valley, Pakistan” by PAK Army with blessings from USA & UK.

      I promise, you will never get any sleep. Ever again.

      Cheers!

        I hope british PREMIER would also raise the question in terms of British Murder crime investigation, why the delay of 2 years. Victimised family should join him. Also he has to address the fate of Barath family. The key murderer of the latter murder would have all access to join CHOGM with the approval of Maharajano. That means, in those sessions, international delegations will be sitting with multi criminals of MR regime. I wonder how the regime would respond to all these questions.
        Whether them to leave the chairmanship of CW to a country where the HR violations are similar to that of Syria, Myanmar or North korea. Our stupid public would behave as North korean were made to do so, to the very same manner, they the koreans behaved on one of the state funeral ceremonies.

        If PM thinks channel 4 videos are chilling he is very mistaken. Here are some really chilling videos!

        Bus and train bombings carried out by LTTE (Piliyandala, Dehiwala, Nugegoda, Dambulla, Polgolla, Colmbo Fort, Mt.Lavinia, Katubedda) during Eelam War 4. Every attack killed dozens of civilians. All civilian targets. No military/police or government facilities/personnel anywhere near attack sites.

          But LTTE was a terrorist organisation and they have committed terrorist activities

          Are you saying that the GOSL is a terrorist organisation too?

            Government has dealt with “Terrorist & Terrorist Organisation”… So the treatment required by a Terrorist has been received..

            So when a terrorist organization commits atrocities and genocide we should ignore that and let their hangers, theoreticians, intelligence operatives a free hand to collect money, seek political asylum and plan more terror activities?

            We should not bother to look at their activities, express sympathy to the victims, ensure that LTTE is not using UK as a base?

            Has Cameron watched any of these videos? Has he reached out to the Sinhala people? Are the Tamil people the only people in Sri Lanka?

            Is it too much to ask that he show equal concern for the plight of the Sinhalese as much as he shows for the Tamils?

            What has his government done to ban the LTTE activities in UK? The ban non-functional. LTTE operatives are free to demonstrate waving LTTE flags in the middle of London and have conferences in the house of representatives? What a joke.

              I am not defending LTTE here, LTTE was banned all over the world.

              My point is The Government has a duty to all it’s citizens. Just because LTTE is an terrorist organisatiom does not mean the GOSL can commit genocide agaisnt the Tamils.

              unless what you are saying that the war crimes committed by GOSL against the Tamils is in repraisal to the terrorist activities of LTTE?

                RajasH,
                Have a look at this:-
                In pursuit of their politics a lot of Sri Lankans, including the GOSL, have forgotten the sacrifices these young men and women have made.

                Rajash,

                In General, In a war situation unwanted situation can arise and can happen, Because solders & Enemy forces are fear for their life. Even Innocent can see by them as an enemy.
                Unfortunately all LTTE’rs are Tamils & All Tamils are not Terrorist..We all understand that.. One isolated incident should not be highlighted so-much.. If You refer to “Issipria”, as per information she was a member of LTTE, So If they fight for a cause & got killed in the mission they must be proud of , should not cry so much..

              Narin we all feel the pain when our own brothers and sisters are killed. I too have lost a few close friends to these senseless acts. However, We seem to missing point here. A terrorist organisations very definition does not allow it to fall under any jurisdiction and is not committed by states but rather by groups of people. The question of genocide or democide arises when a government turns a blind eye to killings when they could been prevented. Democide is the murder of any person or people by a government, including genocide, politicide and mass murder. Democide is not necessarily the elimination of entire cultural groups but rather groups within the country that the government feels need to be eradicated for political reasons and due to claimed future threats.

              The killing of innocents could not have been prevented, but could have been minimised. The videos if true are quite damning in every sense. If the government thinks it’s clean then it should prove to the world that it’s clean. We are a small spec in this whole world, we cannot pretend to think we are mighty when when we are not. We need the help to build our nation to its past glory…not for us but for our future generations.

                Oma yang,
                I am afraid, no rump LTTE understand your sensible logic. All they want somehow is to achieve their aspiration – Eelam.

                Hypocrites are all over. Thousands of those Tamils who live in the west and provided finances like Rudra to train and arm LTTE suicide bombers like the one who killed Rajiv Gandhi have become Prime Minister of the so-called TGTE and the darlings of the west. Those who garlanded the brain washed but young suicide bombers with cyanide necklaces like Adela continue to live in London with no penalty whatsoever.

                But those who brave and lead the fight to destroy the killer gang like Rajapakses are accused of being war criminals. Yet daily these double faced con merchants support drone attacks by the US on innocents in Afghanistan and Pakistan with no shame. Good that you understood the hypocrisy of neocons.

              Navin, you are proving to be a thick-head!

              Try to understand this. WE, Sri Lanka, are the ones who kicked our Tamil brethren out to take refuge, seek sanctuary, in foreign climes. Now WE are reaping the whirlwind because they have found the wherewithal to fight back. Ofcourse, WE (our successive governments) were to blame for allowing the odious LTTE to take root and go onto cause all the devastation that they did. WE finally did the right thing in bringing the LTTE to an end BUT we messed it up – we kept the foreigners out but we couldn’t keep the cameras away. The evidence is damning; our veerayas did the job on our behalf but didn’t quite play by the rules. And we want the world to look the other way? What a fine mess we have got ourselves into.

        Ben, [Edited out], I was working for the “Weekend” and “sun” newspapers when a horrendous groundswell of sinhala mobs in their thousands led by buddhist monks in some places[ to of which i saw personally in ratmalana and off nugegoda]swept across the entire island raping, pillaging,killing,and then piling hundreds of still live bodies at every junction. Dousing them with petrol lent to them by the people, security forces and police, and torching them, all the while screaming filthy expletives at the poor dying souls , screaming themselves hoarse like crazed banshees in the most evil manifestation of a racist purge i’ve ever seen. I spent two days with the bbc’s mark tully helping him identify this and that while he filmed the gory incidents.
        Unfortunately they never saw the light of day because shortly after i left him at the ‘oberoi’,the cid , –acting on lalith athulathmudali’s orders, grabbed all the evidence, all his paraphenalia, and escorted him to the airport.
        We no what we saw !! How do you expect the tamil tiger to respond to all that islandwide savagery that was not, for even a second, arrested by the government? That was not even a war crime. It was a continuous wave of brutal rape,slaughter and arson of epic proportions.
        You chaps think you have the exclusive pre-eminent over-arching god given right to savagery, rape, plunder, arson and mass killings ? But when the retaliation is exercised by your once hapless victims, they are then “murderou tigers”
        How were they treated for endless decades when they were mere lambs, you might laugh, but i repeat ” lambs” because one could search the world over at that time and not find a race as gentle, peaceable and accommodating to a fault than the gentle tamils of yore.even to this day, one can see beneath their anger the unfeigned gentility of that race. Sure i’ve known a score or two of sinhalese of the same nature…but alas, oh so few. If not for them you would not even qualify to be classified a human. You’ve proved before, and continue to prove your sub-human nature.
        With a sickening nonchalance you deem it your right to seek to justify your inherent animal nature by pointing your finger selectively at what” the enemy’ did. There are other like me who walked through and skipped over burnt bodies on the main highways, gazed at the charred bodies of mothers, fathers and children torched together with their belongings.
        Don’t spew your race-glorifying bullshit and presume you can get away with it. If athulathmudali was of the rajapaksa ilk mark tully would have never left sri lanka alive.
        Where , in this country, were they not dragged out of their homes, raped, had their heads bashed in, dumped atop mattresses and items of furniture and then torched to die screaming for mercy as the flames of racial hatred burnt them to cinders?
        Don’t talk bloody insensitive self-justifying cock and think you can get away with it.
        Hang your bloody head in shame.
        The tigers represented a generation of youth deprived an equal short at education, unemployed, doomed to the curse of a language and education and employment policy, racist epithets thrown at them at every street corner: let en recall them : ado kallathoni wesige putha, kari demala hutththa, thangachchi wareng hukanda,hukana demala and a score of other vile racist insults.
        And they took it all with heads bowe.
        Has anything changed since then ?
not one bloody jot !
where the bloody hell were you. How old are you anyway ? I doubt you’re mature enough to be let loose on a blog of this caliber because you sound like you lack basic human sensitivity to death, to rape, to the traumatic horrors of the victims of naked racism.
        Try to be objective and as jrj once did , to his credit, do say ” mea culpa” too.
        What was lasantha killed for by government’s goons ? Why is frederica jansz cowering in fear, still wondering when that fateful visit will come? That’s mental torture of the worst kind for a woman who’s the mother of two kids. What did she say in bidding a painful farewell to journalism? “i’s rather be a living mother to my children who need me than a dead heroine”
        But what does she do with the fear that stalks her day and night ?
where’s ekneligoda ? Why is he missing? Why were other journos killed and sent packing abroad into asylum to save their lives? By which regime ? The one you support ? Where’ the young mandana ismail and her husband and kid ? Enjoying life abroad ? Or living in ignominy abroad as refugees? Escaping what ?
        Men and women of your ilk are an ugly blotch on the canvass of humanity, maggots on the highway of genteel life, nauseating carrion among noble and gentle spirits.
        The entire media cowers in fear. Foreign mp’s and others are arrested and sent packing for circumventing prohibitive regulations which bar them from exercising their democratic rights to probe and expose truth.
        You also seem to be whitewashing sadistic killers like saddam hussein who slaughtered hus own people , the kurds , by experimenting on them with mustard gas, leaving thousands dead.
sure blair and bush could jot find wmd’s in iraq ? But you’re sick if you think they were not there. He bought time, three and a half years in fact, keeping the chemicals weapons inspectors out until he obviously got rid of his stocks before letting them in. But did he fool his people? Did quaddafi fool his people ? Is assad fooling his people ? Is mahinda rajapaksa fooling the people?
        Ask the government why it kept the war zones out of bounds to the media, the un, the diplomatic corps in colombo, the icrc and others and now, years later, are letting them in ” to see the ground situation”? The same reason why saddam kept wmd inspectors out for nearly four years, wouldn’t you say ? And hey presto ! No chemical weapon. Blair and bush are unconscionable invaders ” my bloody foot ” forget how saddam’s killer mbs in uniform invaded kuwait letting loose a spree of mass rape and murder ? Why don’t you ask cameron to continue the probe initiated by bush and blair. We can then progress towards the truth, you remind me of putin whose stances deter the us and allies from invading syria and setting those people free of that damned killer dictatorship of assad who has also used chemical weapons in his people. But the forces of evil are ensconced in every parliament, poised to thwart any such attempt…helped on by apologists for crime such as you.
        Look back into recent history and you will find that the incumbent regime in colombo had those killers named among their best friends. Oh yes ! And you can tell a man by his friends.
        Cameron’s stand for truth might not eb a tenth as effective as he should make it.
        But time will tell.

    Cameron, the fruits of Rajapakse’s cancerous administration are before your own eyes. We all Lankans are under the grip of this monster. He had destroyed all democratic values in this country. There is no rule of law. The independent of judiciary has been completely undermined. There is no separation of power.

    Monster control the legislature through one brother and Judiciary through another stooge appointed by the monster. The freedom of speech has been completely denied with a removal of the press freedom. Even the opposition is controlled by this monster with a spineless puppet who in his pocket.

    See how we are forced to undergo further hardship with this CHOGM. All universities (including the University in Jaffna) and schools are closed for two weeks in fear of agitation against the tyrannical rule. And all the important roads heavily used by the people are also closed for traffic. The amount of money spent on this extravaganza is unimaginable in a country where a large section of the population cannot even meet their ends.

    In this background we people cannot understand why you and other leaders in the commonwealth are giving legitimacy to this monster administration and we plead you to follow the example set by CANADA.
    We have been denied a basic right to justice with a removal of the Chief Justice and appointing a stooge as the CJ and this miserable background, we THE PEOPLE OF SRI LANKA demands the world community to try RAJAPAKSE clan in a international tribunal for all crimes these criminals continue to commit against the humanity.

      Your freedom of speech is not what the majority believe. You want terrorists to be accepted as freedom fighters. You want NGO sharks and neocon economic slayers to be named as HR activists.

      Vast majority of Sri Lankans enjoy prevailing peace and economic progress. They are no fools to buy your rambling. That’s why they have repeatedly rejected the opposition and kept electing Rajapakse to power at every election.

      Of courSe you’re right KARU. tHE TERRORIST KILLINGS OF sINHALA CIVILIANS HAVE BEEN RECORDED AD NAUSEAM IN THE MEDIA FOR THE PAST TWO DECADES OR MORE.

      THE POINT HERE IS THAT THE EXTREMIST SINHALA HAS THIS UNWRITTEN, UNAID UNANIMITY IN TRYING TO WHITE-WASH STATE TERRORISM AND IS TRYING TO WHITE WASH WAR CRIMES WHICH THE STATE IS CONSISTENTLY DENYING TOOK PLACE DESPITE EQUALLY COMPELLING EVIDENCE.

      ON THE OTHER HAND, NOT IN ONE SINGLE KILLING DID THE TIGER EVER TRY TO DENY THEIR CULPABILITY.NOT ONCE. THER TERRORISM WAS CARRIED OUT FOR ALL TO SEE. THEY COULD HAVE EASILY SAID ” HEY, THAT BUS BOMB WAS NOT PLACED BY US. tHOSE VIDEOS ARE FAKE. HAD THEY DENIED ANY OF THEIR TERROR KILLINGS IT WOULD HAVE BEEN AS RIDICULOUS AS THE GOVERNMENT DENYING VIDEO AN OTHER EVIDENCE OF WAR CRIMES FEATURING SRI LANKAN SOLDIERS.

      ALL THE BREAST-BEATING DENIALS AND CRYING ” APPOCHCHIYA” IS MUCKY BUNKUM AND A CRUDE ATTEMPT AT SELF JUSTIFICATION. LET’S FACE IT. THEY ARE STINKING COWARDS WHO ARE VERY VERY BRAVE WHEN THEY HAVE A GUN IN HAND OR ARE PHYSICALLY PITTED AGAINST A WEAKER OPPOSITION. IN EVERY NATION THERE’S THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY. THE SINHALESE WOULD TIP THE SCALES ON THE BAD AND UGLY SIDE.VOICES NEED TO BE HEARD LOUD AND CLEAR ON FACTS ND THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BE TOLD WHERE TO GET OFF THE BUS.

      IF WE ARE SO BLOODY LILY WHITE WE’D BETTER HAVE A CLEAN SLATE INSTEAD OF DEMANDING THAT CAMERON TO INITIATE PROBES INTO us?BRITISH SOLDIERS KILLING AFGHAN, IRAQUI OR OTHER CIVILIANS.IN FACT I DO HOPE MAHINDA RAJAPAKSA WILL INITIATE SUCH A MOVE WHEN HE’S THE CHAIR OF THE C’WEALTH.

      BUT HE’D BE BLOODY STUPID IF HE FIRST DOES NOT DEMONSTRATE THAT HE HIMSELF IS MORALLY CLEAN ON THE SAME SCORE AND THAT ANY SUCH DEMAND IS NOT JUST USE AS A RED HERRING TO FURTHER DRAW AWAY ATTENTION FROM WAR CRIMES COMMITTED IN SRI LANKA.

      SINHALA EXTREMIST APOLOGISTS KEEP ON STUPIDLY CHANTING WHAT ABOUT “THEIR KILLINGS” ? WHY NOT EXPOSE THOSE ALSO ? MY GOD,FOR WELL OVER 25 YEARS AT A NEWS DESK THERE NOTHING ELSE THAT I DID BUT SPLASH THOSE LTTE KILLINGS OVER HALF OF EVERY ISSUE. AND SO DID ALL OTHER PAPERS AND THE ELECTRONIC MEDIA.

      WE ONCE ESTIMATED THAT OVER 275,000 NEWSSHEETS OF THE NUMEROUS ENGLISH, SINHALA AND TAMIL PAPERS SPLASHED LTTE TERROR ATTACKS 365 DAYS A YEAR FOR OVER 25 YEARS.

      YET, THESE BUFFOONS KEEP ON THAT STUPID CHANT OF ” WHY NOT TALK OF THEIR KILLINGS”

      THERE JUST IS NO WORD IN ANY LEXICON TO DESCRIBE ACCURATELY THE CRASS STUPIDITY OF THESE RACIST APOLOGISTS FOR WANTON CRIME.

      DID KP DENY GANDHI’S KILLING ?

      DID LARUNA DENY THE SLAUGHTER OF 600 POLICEMEN ?

      DID NOT EVEN PRABHAKARAN ADMIT THE GANDHI KILLING WAS AN ERROR IN JUDGEMENT ?

      THERE EVEN IS NO NEED TO CONSIDER PROSECUTION. IN THE WAR CRIMES THE ACCUSED WERE TRIED AND EXECUTED. WHAT MORE DO THEY WANT ? THEY’VE CARRIED OUT THE SENTENCE.

      NO.NO. I SUSPECT THAT THE UNDERLYING CAUSE FOR ALL THIS SHILLY-SHALLYING IS THAT:

      A. GOVERNMENT FEARS THAT POTTU AMMAN AND PRABHAKARAN ARE STILL ALIVE IS GIVING THEM NIGHTMARES AND THEY’RE LIKE A BUNCH OF FRIGHTENED CHILDREN IN THE DARK SHITTING IN THEIR PANTS AT THE SLIGHTEST RUSTLE OF A LEAF.EVEN INDIA IS NOT SATISFIED THAT THE BODY SHOWN ON TV WAS THAT OF PRABHAKARAN THE CASE IS INCONCLUSIVE FROM A LEGAL POINT OF VIEW. SHOULD ANY COURT ON EARTH DEMAND DNA PROOF OF EITHER KILLING, CAN THE GOVERNMENT COME UP WITH IT ? PRABHAKARAN MIGHT WELL HAVE BEEN THE MAN IN THE VIDEO. BUT POTTU AMMAN IS A DIFFERENT…AND EXTREMELY DANGEROUS KETTLE OF FISH. WHICH IS WHY KP AND KARUNA CAN NEVER BE SET FREE IF ONLY FOR THEIR OWN SAFETY. WHAT A TWIST OF FATE FOR THOSE TURNCOATS WHO MASTERMINDED THE ATTACKS WHICH DECIMATED THE LTTE. THAT’S RIGHT, FONSEKA AND GOTA WOULD STILL BE COUNTING BODY BAGS ON FLIGHTS TO COLOMBO IF NOT FOR THOSE TWO, THE TRUE ARCHITECTS OF THE GOVERNMENT’S VICTORY.

      B. THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT TO MAKE OF THE TGTE AND SUSPECT THERE MORE TO THE TNA WINNING THE PC ELECTIONS THAN MEETS THE EYE..LIKE, COULD THERE BE A DEAL BETWEEN THE TNA AND TGTE TO USE THE PC PLATFORM TO SOMEWHERE DOWN THE LINE LINK THE TWO UP AND MAKE A PLAY FOR A SEPARATE STATE ? ELSE, WHY DO THEY REALLY INSIST ON POLICE AND LAND POWERS.

      EVEN THE SINHALESE ARE IN UTTER DREAD OF THIS GOVERNMENT EXCEPT FOR ITS CHEAPSKATE APOLOGISTS WHO HAVEN’T THE GUTS TO POST THEIR REAL NAMES TO WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY. A BUNCH OF COWARD HIDING BEHIND BOGUS NAMES, AS BOGUS AS THE FEVERISH IMAGINATIONS OF THEIR TWISTED MINDS. THEY DO SAY THAT SUCH COWARDS DIE A THOUSAND DEATHS.A SIMPLE TYRE BURST IN COLOMBO IS ENOUGH TO PUSH UP SALES OF BROMO PAPER AND SUSTAIN THE MILLIONS MADE ON LIFE INSURANCE SALES.

      I ALSO DO AGREE WITH YOU THAT OBAMA AND CAMERON NEED TO PUT THEIR ACT IN ORDER BEFORE BULLYING SRI LANKA FOR UNKNOWN MOTIVES. I SAY THAT UNLIKE OTHER PUNDITS DOING THE CIRCUIT BECAUSE I AM NOT PRIVY TO WHAT GOE ON AT WHITE HOUSE MEETINGS !!! SOME OF OUR CHAPPIES IN COLOMBO SEEM TO KNOW. AMAZING EH!

    Aney how sexy. The fellow is “tweeting” now. All these years he could not “tweet” now he is suddenly “tweeting” really sweet tweets also. This same Cameron who wants to shut down the guardian for revealing secrets about UK and US spying on their citizens now tweets because of channel 4 spying on sri lanka.

    No one is saying that there is no problem in sri lanka; we all certainly know that there is, BUT THE SAME PROBLEM IS THERE IN THE US UK INDIA and EVERY WHERE. So if we are going to support your bloody inquiry into sri lankan war crimes then we want to have an inquiry into your spying and your torturing and your raping and your murdering as well. Ok TWEETS!? Keep tweeting ok?

      what an utter joke people like you are. coupled with the reply you’ve given ajith below, it’s clear that you people aren’t concerned about doing the right thing and setting the record straight for the country’s future- all you want to do is make sure that if we lose face, everyone else guilty of our crimes loses face as well. this isn’t about solving the national issue to you, but trying to play world statesman with a problem that’ll come round to tear this country apart yet again in the future. you can attack whoever you like, and imply whoever is gay, but my friend, it’s we sri lankans who’re going to suffer in the end because you have dreams of becoming some kind of political superpower…

    Well done PM! Sri Lanka should be punished for its crime and Tamils should get the legitimate right of self determination. Srilanka is the only country where genocide is happening in the 21st century. It is the only country where food, medicine and rape used as a weapon of mass destruction in addition to chemical and cluster bombs used in the no fire zone against its own people.

      Wait a minute Ajith, what is this about only country involved in genocide in the 21st century? Have you heard of India? No? India! That “worlds biggest democracy”! Heard about it? Well it is that india that told sri lanka to go ahead and bomb the Tamils even if it has to kill 250,000 of them ok! So who is committing genocide here now? and what about all those tribes that India is busily wiping out? Isnt that also genocide? Isnt it also in the 21st century? What is going on with the indigenous people in south america? That is not genocide then?

      Ok Torture, Rape and murder as political methods is NOT ACCEPTABLE and have to be dealt with. BUT they happen in India as well. YES WE do have a problem that we have to solve. Do you think that bonny prince charles can solve it for us? or do you think that manmohan can? Let me tell you much of this problem we have was learned from the very people who are now clamoring for a war crimes tribunal. I think we should follow Snowden and come clean. I think that Mahinda and Gota should come clean and tell the whole world who told them to do what and whose instructions they were following, including the DJ and Rajiva and all their psy ops people from around the world. That way the world will know who the war criminals are.

        Dear cracyoldmans,

        Unfortunately whether this was ordered by India or anyone else, the final order came from Sri Lanka and it is Srilankan forces who did it and it is the President of Sri Lanka ordered to execute it. That is why it is important the truth should come out and President of Sri Lanka can tell the truth who ordered him to do this and why he did it? I agree that all srilankans and the whole world should know the truth.

          CRAZYOLDMANS,
          NOW YOU’RE TALKING.
          AND THAT’S JUST IT.!

          LET THE WHOLE TRUTH BE KNOWN. LET EVERYONE BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE .

          LET THERE BE TRANSPARENCY AS LONG AS IT DOES NOT JEOPARDISE AND FURTHER NEGATE THE COURSE OF REAL JUSTICE.

          FULLY AGREE WITH YOU AND AJITH’S COMMENT BELOW ABOVE ALL, LET THERE BE JUSTICE METED OUT WITH COMPASSION.

          AS GOD PUT IT SUCCINCTLY IN THE BIBLE” I WILL HAVE JUSTICE RATHER THAN SACRIFICE”
          A PROBE DOES NOT HAVE TO END IN RETRIBUTIVE PUNITIVE LEGAL DECISIONS. IT CAN ALWAYS BE PEJORATIVE IF THAT’S HOW IT HAS TO BE.

          THE END OBJECTIVE MUST BRING JUSTICE.

          BUT THE RIGHT MEN MUST JUDGE THAT, NOT THOSE WITH VESTED INTERESTS.NOT LACKEYS APPOINTED TO LOPSIDED COMMITTEES AND BOGUS COMMISSIONS.

          Ok Ajith.

          I get the drift.

          That would be perfect and something that I would really like to see happen along with the story of KP and the other terrorists who are in the government and all the African elephant tusks and the tiger gold that are trying to fly the island with Kerry packaging, and all the kerala ganja that has been swimming through our seas despite the Indian fishermen and their nets and oh yes the truth about the white vannings and the killings of journos and the people who tie themselves to trees and the WHOLE thing along with the many many ‘businesses’ that have been set up by the state using captive military labor.

          Of course it will never happen because the thousands of fellows like the small kp above who are paid liberally to muddy the water and ensure that the dirt is not exposed.

    Offences against humanity shall be tried irrespective of the power and authority enjoyed by the state. US, UK, GERMANY, FRANCE, ISRAEL and SRI LANKA are equally liable to be dealt with.

    Rome Treaty has been introduced to save the humans from abused and oppression by all tyrannical regimes. And this has been ratified even by the Bangladesh, giving people there to change those responsible for offences against humanity in the INTERNATIONAL CRIMINAL COURT.

    It is true that that politicians corrupt to the core won’t dare to sign this treaty, but all subjects (citizens) of Sri Lanka have every right to demand the government in power to ratify this treaty, particularly in the absence of a effective Judiciary that that is infested with the subservient spineless judges (99% of whom appointed from the public service (Attorney General’s Dept). The bitter truth is that these spineless subservient people had betrayed the trust placed in them the by the people and their democratic rights, guaranteed under the ‘so-called supreme law, the Constitution.

    UNP cannot not absolve from this responsibility. Recently RW openly boasted that he ‘never ratified international treaties that binds Sri Lankan Government of its responsibility to honour the fundamental rights of the people recognised by the UN charter’.

    Callum Macrae has succeeded in his attempt to discredit Sri Lanka with his PM. We are still waiting to see the films he CLAIMS to have made during/after the illegal invasion of Iraq, and to prove that he is NOT a part of the western conspiracy as he claimed. Channel 4 has YET to show them.
    Jon Snow, a ‘news’ reader of Ch 4 notoriety stated quite clearly that Gaddafy had atomic weapons and therefore needed to be taken out, which the French did in a very graphic manner. This statement is as we well know completely UNTRUE. We do NOT expect a retraction. We now know that the Palestinians too had an atomic weapon though it was in the form of Yasser Arafat who had been fed radioactive Polonium from which he died.

    I believe if I had born in the minority I too would hand the same mental state like Sri Lankan Tamils. We should not try to push them to the wall.

    Now, thanks to India, Provincial Council in the North is govern by a proven gentleman, let’s try to built trust, friendship and understanding between the two communities and Commit ourselves to take the country forward.

      Not only you many that have lived, worked or studied with majorities should have somewhat the same stance on what the tamil folks have been facing. Be it in a country, region, team, minority voices are being suppressed. Depending on the composition, this is though varied. And education of the folks are the other crucial factor that plays there a key role. I know this very well having lived on the west for such a long time. It solely depends on the folks that have been met with the problems. Their culture, tradition and religions also play a great role here. See the problems of Kurds in Turkey, Irak are somewhat similar to that of lanken tamils. I really dont think that the problem by 83 was that crucial with the tamils in SL because most of tamils were not neglected to the manner palestinians in Israel, kurds in Turkey and Irak have been.

      No. I do not believe he is a gentleman. He is a hindu hardliner and an intelligent one. Strongly committed to the Vishva Hindu Parishad with its political wing the BJP and its stormtroopers the RSS (Like our BBS) and so he becomes part and parcel of the growing global chess board of the Vishva Hindu Parishad. One set of donkeys is no better than the other. Politics is a power play and if one takes it to bombs and bullets then one will very certainly get bombs and bullets coming ones direction. I would rather be in the phillipines than here in the near future.

    This is probably how the conversation will unfold:

    Nov 16:

    Cameron: “Mr. Rajapakse, the people and govt. of the UK are deeply concerned about allegations of war crimes committed by your government as depicted in several documentaries by well-known British journalists”

    Rajapakse: “No, no, these are all baseless allegations cooked up by the Tamil diaspora. As a responsible government I give you my personal assurance that any allegations will be investigated and perpetrators brought to justice. We are fully committed to human rights and are just recovering from war, no?

    Cameron: “Thank you, Mr. President. I appreciate your efforts and candor. I will inform the British public that I raised these very serious questions with you.”

    Rajapakse: “No problem. Come, come, let us have a drink. Have you tasted string hoppers? They are very nice.

    Nov 16:

    Cameron departs SL

    Nov 17:

    Rajapakse to Gota: “He has gone, brother. I assured him of my concerns about human rights. Now Kaapalla, Beepalla, joli karapalla!”

    If this is a “chilling Video” for you, what about the video of the LTTE who was killing 100’s of devotees & Buddhist monks at Anuradhapura & sri Maha Bodhi in 1988.

    See the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YYItQwy0jog

      Let me see. What is more “chilling” a terrorist organization killing 1000 people or a government killing 01 person because that person stood up and said that the terrorist organization was responding to a long standing political problem.

      What is more “chilling” a terrorist organization killing 1000 people or a government that fails to protect civilians in its attempt to eradicate the terrorists which is exactly the problem that the government of America faces.

      What is more “chilling” a terrorist organization killing 1000 people or a government that refuses to investigate torture, rape and murder by its armed forces, which of course the American government has repeatedly investigated and convicted its own troops but many other governments like for instance the government of India refuse to do.

      What is more “chilling” a terrorist organization killing 1000 people or a government refusing to allow citizens to meet freely in order to discuss their interests and which outlaws and criminalizes certain clearly political objectives.

      What is more “chilling” a terrorist organization killing 1000 people or a government that allows impunity and whose members engage in torture, rape and murder.

      Shall we all chill out on the chilling and enjoy the torture rape and killing.

    Perhaps Channel 4 should make a documentary on the colonial crimes committed by the British in Kenya and every other country that executed those that were against their brutal imperial regime. It seems like Dave Cameron has selective chilling as he seems to only react when allegations come of war crimes from third world countries which don’t have western involvement.
