Tamils Want Inquiry After UN Says It ‘Failed Civilians’ In Bloody Sri Lanka Civil War – CNN

The Tamil National Alliance, Sri Lanka’s largest Tamil political party, on Thursday called for an international inquiry into a U.N. failure to protect civilians during the final stages of the country’s bloody 26-year civil war.

The request comes a day after the United Nations admitted that it didn’t protect hundreds of thousands of civilians, mostly ethnic Tamils, trapped in areas of heavy shelling in Sri Lanka, a teardrop-shaped island nation off India’s southern coast.

“The internal inquiry report that has now come to light says the U.N. failed civilians by leaving the area,” M.A. Sumanthiran, the Tamil National Alliance parliamentarian, told CNN.

    Abattoirs; Abattoirs; Abattoirs;The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.

    Potentially, a government is the most dangerous threat to man’srights:

    it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally

    disarmed victims.

    Que pasa; No nada!

    It is not a case of the TNA or the Tamils want an Impartial INQUIRY, the UN is duty bound to conduct a PROPER INQUIRY for the entire MANKIND. If not it will be a DISGRACE for the UN to suppress.

    Who has the spine to ask UN to inquire massacre of millions in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya?

    Who created conditions which keep killing on a daily basis in these countries?

    Why??? Why??? Why???

      When the dust settles the people of Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya who have their own spines will demand justice from the foreigners. If you really care about them please do help them. When you take on the West I will be right behind you supporting in every way possible until you run out of steam. Be a man, teach the USA a lesson they will never forget for another 2,500 years.

      It is the spineless Sri Lankan leaders who refuse to face justice.

      If there is nothing to hide why are these cowards refusing to face independent investigation.

      Please ask the Sri Lankan leaders to be men.

      BunkerRat, first see the mole in your eye before you see the speck in the other’s eye. If not your exercise is of no use. If you have cleared the mole in your eye, then certainly everyone will give ear to your plea of looking at the other’s eye. How genuine are you about the other’s eye?

      The Middle East its foreign forces and there are foreigners who were opposed to the war who are working on it.A good example is Shrub has an arrest warrent issued on him by a judge at Genève.

      While rajaporkistan recently received a reprieve from prosecution in America as long as he is the head of state.

      Sri Lanka is a classic case of the Southerner gaining power forming the Government and murdering its own people therefore its citizens undoubtedly have the spine but are optimistically cautious because the northerner is no better than the southerner both know how to jump like the monkey and more.RRR race;religion;region.

    There is a vast difference between massacring your own citizens and a war waged with another country. That differes a borderline between a dictatorship and democratic governance.

    Prabakaran given cyanide pills to his soldier to end their life any event if they captured by the SL Army.Not to surrender at any event.This one is only for his followers.Why this supreme Leader wave white flag and tried to surrender with his family.Without doing that.Do you believe this man is leader of Tamil people.Look, what is TNA is doing at the movement.They also asking India(RAW – responsible for train Praba and other LTTE Leaders -Supplying arms at the same time talking to SL Leader and other Western Leaders pretending they are independent but doing nothing) This so called leaders and world other politicians are following the same principles.Don’t waste your time Tamil community,Muslim community even Sinhala community all are divided.Until you come to common except-able solution we are still cannot drew our line for peace.

    Western countries are economically straggling.At least east is not much effected like that so far.War crime demand cannot proceed because of USA/UK also committed more War Crime than the SL.Bush and Blair’s names mention in every time.But that’s all.TNA- diaspora all ways talking sitting on the racesis platform.They never realize they are more racesis than some SL leaders.They are always taking about land distribution in Northern ad Eastern part of Sri Lanka.But they are buying enough properties in other parts of Sri Lanka.

    Ask for a more jobs to your area people.Ask for constitutional Amendment to appoint a Tamil-Muslim Vice President post in Sri Lanka.More Ministerial posts- join hand with government like Muslims.
