The Responsibility To Protect And External Interventions In The Sri Lankan Conflict

 By G. H. Peiris

Prof. G. H. Peiris

The focus of this study is on ‘external interventions’ in the Sri Lankan conflict – those ostensibly intended to pressurise both the government of Sri Lanka as well as the LTTE to abandon violent confrontation and seek a negotiated settlement of the conflict. Such pressures on the government take several forms, applied with varying levels of intensity and insistence by the different countries with which Sri Lanka maintains close relations – advice and moral persuasion, economic aid being made conditional upon the resumption of ‘peace negotiations’, prohibitions on the sale of arms, providing lavish support to local NGOs that claim to be engaged in the ‘peace effort’, and, above all, threat of action as envisaged in the emerging doctrine of ‘Responsibility to Protect’ (‘R2P’) against alleged violations of human rights. To the LTTE, with its proclaimed adherence to the belief that terrorist violence is a legitimate instrumentality of ‘liberation struggles’, and ranking as it does among the most violent terrorist outfits in the world, the charge of human rights violations has remained largely inconsequential except where it is given concrete expression in sanctions and proscriptions. To the Sri Lanka government, being placed at par with the Tigers in accusations of human rights violation is, of course, a damning indictment and a humiliating diminution of status in the community of nations.

During the period covered by this study (2006-2007), the secessionist campaign of the LTTE suffered major setbacks, exacerbating its earlier losses caused by the Tsunami and the ‘Karuna revolt’. The period has also been featured by an extraordinarily sharp upsurge of external “humanitarian intervention” in the Sri Lankan conflict, the intensity of which has had a remarkable correspondence with the tenor and tempo of LTTE failures. There are strong indications of this concomitance representing a causal connexion in the sense that the outcry against alleged human rights violations in Sri Lanka is, at least in part, the product of a well orchestrated attempt to rescue the LTTE from impending doom.

The study begins with a probe into the changing perceptions concerning human rights as postulated by the United Nations, attempting to contextualise such postulates both in the efforts of human rights activists to ‘globalise’ humanitarian ideals as well as in the counterpoising desire on the part of most States to safeguard national sovereignty. In the next section external interventions which Sri Lanka has encountered in the recent past are placed under critical scrutiny. This is followed by a detailed ‘case study’ of a multi-pronged human rights intervention in an episode of the Sri Lankan conflict.

      Pasel,

      you are absolutely correct, This fellow, or whoever wrote this long article is bent on covering up the murderous Sri Lankan state controlled by the racist Sinhala elite.

      They ignore all the atrocities committed on Tamils since independence in 1948.
      They pick and choose some sections of this entire period and argue in isolation.

      The truth is: The Sinhalese racist state and its agents have set on a path since independence to oppress Tamils in every respect climaxing in genocide of 147,000 Tamils in 2009.

      Genocide of Tamils continues in different forms now.

      Sinhalese writers think they are the cleverest in the world and they can fool the world all the time. Those days are gone, and the judgment day is approaching.

      As Harry Truman, 33rd president of US said: We must have strong minds, ready to accept facts as they are.

      Sinhalese leaders, and most of their elite are cowards; they want to hide the truth.

      Truth will set the Tamils free from Sinhala tyranny.

        Who is this Thaka Thiru character?

        Doesn’t he realise that they tried to implement all their threats between 1980 and 2009 through their Sun prince and lost badly.

        Now shut up if you want to live in Sri Lanka as a Sri Lankan, or get the hell out of here crying out for a refugee ticket somewhere like the UK or Canada.

          Periya Thurai,

          you may like to live like a surf in Sri Lanka, but the vast majority of Tamils want justice and freedom.

          May be you don’t value freedom but survive in subservience.

          That’s your choice, enjoy life until they come for you.

          Tamils aren’t going to leave SL and they aren’t going to stop identifying as Tamils. It is you Sinhalese who have to accept that the island is not your sole possession, because you are not going to get this Sinhala only utopia you dream of.

            Are Palmsquirrell and Thaka Thiru gay lovers, or Thaka just lives in the palm of squirrell?

            So how is the Palmsquirrell or Ranmenika’s grand son plan to rob Sri lanka off the Sinhalese for the Portuguese?

            We Tamils fell in to troble mainly because of fraud and idiots like Palmsquirrell.

              I understand that the latest Channel 4 movie on unbelievable, but true, cruel and ghastly Sri Lankan genocide scenes of Tamils (taken by Sri Lankan soldiers) during the war is coming soon.

              Let it tear the masks of the embedded writers and analysts propping up the genocidal regime and its henchmen.

              These are the barbarians and the state the writers want Tamils to reconcile with!

              Better to perish than living under the jack boots of these barbarians.

              This movie must be shown in Geneva in March 2014.

          People like yourself are the main reasons for Tamil to seek independent from your people, nations states are new entities , they have no historical origins themselves, all were made by ruling elite serve their petty interests. Majority of Tamils live in North and Eastern provinces thus area of their habitat belong to people where they live, not elite of Colombo.

        You writings raise more questions than answers! Now, who are these witnesses to the claimed atrocities committed on Tamils? Are they the asylum seekers in the west or the diaspora in the west who funded the LTTE terrorist group? Also, why do these asylum seekers with such horror stories by pass tens and twenties of other countries and run to western countries? Shouldn’t they run to India, the closest to avoid those claimed “horrible” human right violations on them?
        Who counted the 147,000 genocide of the Tamils? You or the Amnesty International paid by the Tiger supporters? How many Tiger terrorists were fighting the SLDFs? Where are they now? Has any Tamil come forward claiming they were terrorists of the LTTE? Has any Tamil family come forward claiming their next of kin was a Tiger terrorist?

        66-years since independent! 66-years of atrocities? Well,nearly 30-years of that period is debited to Prabhakaran and Tamil terrorists. Their atrocities on the remainder of the nation during those 30-years made the other 36-years’ events fade into insignificance. Tamil terrorists certainly hold the upper pedestal in atrocity and HR violations.

          “Their atrocities on the remainder of the nation during those 30-years made the other 36-years’ events fade into insignificance.”

          Well it seems you have given a humongous discount to state’s terrorism and the Sinhala/Buddhist terrorism of JVP.

          Where would you like to debit and credit those two terrorism, perhaps in a suspense account? Are you hoping to transfer the gains or losses through journals and write it off in some obscure account?

          Where do you suggest we write off IPKF’s terrorism in the North East, cost of goods sold, direct costs, establishment expenses, admin costs, financial costs or depreciation?

          “Tamil terrorists certainly hold the upper pedestal in atrocity and HR violations.”

          Could we have sight of the comparative studies where it is conclusively proven that “Tamil terrorists certainly hold the upper pedestal in atrocity and HR violations.”.

          Thanks a lot, looking forward to your audit report of the past 66 years of atrocities.

          I couldn’t agree more – all of us who lived in SL during this 30 years will never forget it – what can compare to the horrible HR violations of that time… surprising there were no USA or UK to sympathise when innocent people were being killed everyday for no reason. JVP too terrorized just like the LTTE but that was only for 1-2 years. They too were brutally crushed by the Gov. and many Sinhala youth died just like in the last phase of LTTE defeat. death of innocents is always sad and should not happen. but defeat of terrorism should be welcome by all.

      Why don’t you say what actions were “against the minorities since the independent “.
      Look at other minorities in the so called civilized countries. Do you know when the Blacks of US got to go in the same bus as the whites, they were allowed to go to school with the whites, they were allowed to attend Universities, they were allowed to vote, they were allowed to own land, they were allowed to run for office? When did the Tamils of Sri Lanka achieve these milestones?

            According you it was Karikalan and the like went all the way to USA and kept the blacks down for over 200 years while you want to free them from American big boots.

            What an amazing discovery.

            Why don’t you free the stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhalese from Gota’s big boots or from his iron fist?

            Once finished move on to India where you got lot of liberation to do.

          Looks like you have no answers to my questions. Don’t the tamils say the Sinhalese are racists?? So what is the difference? Did the blacks raise arms against the whites or ask for a separate country in the south? In spite of that they have won most of their rights. Tamils should learn from them. If tamils opt violence they should bare the consequences!

            Go and see in the mirror man, then yo may come with constructive arguments. CT forums are not stupid okay? Lanken masses will clearly show that the thugs in power are no longer acceptable to them. All these electric chair and other issues are just tricks to play on them for sympathy votes.
            JHU -Udaya G has criticised the PCs as no worth, but to contest for teh elections alone makes it clear that the ill fated pseudo buddhist is not second to Wimal buruwanse. Sad to see the way – that man begs for money- latter is to me almost comparable to what Mervin did few months ago.Kelaniya is devided today. Many I know will not give support to Mervin or any ruling candidates.

            By borrowing baila from the africans you also observed another spice colony the west indies.
            The africans were taken to the west indies to run the new plantations and they killed the indigenous arawaks (like the veddhas). Now even today in the west, the west indies are known as the greatest of racist asking for freedom from what nobody knows. All we see is that they are natural fascist and the sihala have proved that they are the same with attacks now on christian and muslim instutions.

        Eusense,

        You are talking through your head! Pay attention you idiot that the Tamils of Sri Lanka are 100% Sri Lankans on par with the Sinhala. You need to get this fact in your thick scull. If you fail it recognise the fact, the Tamils will agitate and eventually will realise Eelam. Think about East Timor so Sinhala bigotry will create Eelam.

        The history of the blacks in the US is a tragic story; African slavery was and still is a blemish on the West. Your small mind has equated the Sinhala to the West; your superior mentality has no bounds!

    The USofA has a long standing track record of replacing by any means necessary, governments of little countries that DO NOT follow instructions. At least some in Sri Lanka have at long last caught on to the fact as evidenced in an article on ‘ thenation.lk ‘

    The dictators of the Latin Americas who ran the countries according to the whims of the US were replaced by democratically elected leaders whenever possible. The US is lamenting the loss of the brothels and the gambling dens in Cuba. The Shah of Iran who was groomed and put in power replacing a popular PM was unseated by a religious cleric to great dismay in the US, and it’s attempts to reverse the process is still ongoing. Saddam Hussein who was compliant for a long while went rogue and had to be replaced after being fitted up with the WMD hoax, with great material destruction in Iraq. Yugoslavia suffered a similar fate and the US sponsored President Panic was quickly got rid of by the locals. So Yugoslavia was dismembered. Gaddafi suffered a not too dissimilar fate. Attempts to replace Bashar Al Assad who was struggling to hold his country together is still being played out.

    Fact and truth are alien to the US ‘diplomats’. They are a different breed. Visits from them to our land should be minimised lest it become another Thailand. As China has announced recently, it is an all-weather friend to us unlike the others who now stand exposed.

          Why didn’t Sri Lankan armed forces defend this island when IPKF invaded first by air and later by air and sea?

          Why was it left to the LTTE to kick the Hindians back to where they belonged?

    Can you write about who killed VP’s 10 year old Son?

      I can. It was the LTTE to prevent him falling into government hands. Look at the green sandbags not a scratch. Look how calm the boy is among friends. Look at the lack of blood from the corpse showing he was killed elsewhere and dumped. Finally look at the ‘soldiers’ feet. Some are wearing slippers! Hardly the army, most likely to be fleeing tigers.
      But the Tamil propaganda machine works overtime and the western journalists can make big emotional headlines with a good story. And the Sri Lankan government does little and waits till the damage is done and the lie has become accepted as truth.

        Paul:

        Something like your goon president declared, carrying a gun/rifle in one and the human charter in another and repeatedly bluffing the whole world with the dubious “zero” civilian casualties. Today, almost nothing what the regime tells and does is believed, no credibility at all. You don’t even have the guts to stand in front of an independent international investigation to prove your worth, and you are lecturing us.

        Paul,

        All the LTTE Bunkers in Kilinochchi including VP’s Bunker later opened to the Public, fell into the hands of the Forces, once the LTTE left Kilinochchi in Jan 2009 without a fight. Not a drop of blood was shed from either side, although VP said earlier that the A 9 will be a River of blood of the Forces if they entered Kilinochchi. So how can you say this bunker where VP’s son was seen was not in the hands of the Forces?

        When the NFZ was shelled the Forces denied that they never did and alleged that probably the LTTE was responsible. This can not be because by that time the LTTE had buried all their heavy artillery, so the LTTE can not be held responsible for the shelling of the NFZ.

        When Isapriya’s body was shown, the MR govt took the position that Isapriya would have died in combat. Today the whole world has seen how Isapriya was taken into custody by the Forces alive and the Forces personnel can be easily identified from the video footage. Similarly denying responsibility for VP’s son’s death by the Forces can not be taken seriously considering the serious evidence available, what Channel 4 has released that have been obtained from the Forces itself. Your denying is like MR’s claom of zero casualty but in reality thousands have been killed.

        It is a matter of time, like how the US and India got VP eliminated by duping him to surrender, burying all the heavy artillery and abandoning his stronghold Kilinochchi, while the masses were made to believe they were hammering each other, there is irrefutable evidence with the US and the Indians to fix your Sando MR, if he does not Co-operate to deliver. No amount of Nonises, Penises or Perises denying or writing reams can save him.

      Arati,
      It is the SLDF who were fighting a terrorist war. Who brought this kid to the battle field? Will you take your kid to a battle field? What was he/she thinking? Parayabakaran’s son will be anointed with oils and food? These terrorists have used children, women, pregnant women as suicide bombers. As such soldiers have to use their best judgment in split seconds. Looks like they used it.

        Not only the low born, cowardly terrorist VP brought his own son to the battle field to show how tough he was, but dumped his son and tried to get away to save his skin. I think the remaining Tamil terrorists got angry being dumped by their cowardly leader and shot the “boy terrorist”.

    Human Rights is an anathema to Govts who plunder and murder their own citizens. They hide behind the word sovereignity and commit the worst of crimes. UN and International Community are expected to look the other way or turn a blind eye.

    Academics like the author seek to lend respectability and credence to these inhumane activities by writing long diatribes which can be better described as “beating about the bush”. Summary is to mind your own business even if neighbour is being chopped into pieces.

    If the Whites in the West, have given recognition and equal positions to the Blacks who were Slaves then, why can not the Sinhalese Buddhists give recognition and equal position to the Tamils in this country? I believe the world powers should come down hard on these Stupid Sinhalese and make this country for all it’s citizens. I think the time is rife for a new Constitution where no Religion or Race is placed above any and all to be treated equally. It is only then that this country can be called a Civilized Country.

Ruling representatives for the up coming PC elections are well trained to focus on following points rather than the grivances of the people of in each of the PCs.

      a) IC has been trying to corner “our country” in the world for lack of HRand non-existent electric chair is being narrated to draw sympathy and rob their votes – upcoming UN resolution is a forgone conclusion, that they will pass against the country – no doubt about that
      b) They the candidates attack UNP and JVP for their past incidents, instead of bringing as to why President appoint numerous unwanted/powerless ministers and deputies not even questioning the tasks fulfilled by prevailing ministers.

      c) They shamelessly speak about the development -that allmighty has brought to the country- while not answering about what the new avenuses for income through newly instroduced ports.

      d) Not the least idea they have as to why the over 50% of country´s assets are being handleed by Rajapakshe familial role while all other ministers are being treated ill.

      Gamini?
      havent the Sinhalese given everything they can to the tamils? Compare time lines of what blacks had in the US and what Tamils had by then. What rights do they don’t have but only the Sinhalese have?

          You are the biggest fool! When have the Sinhala given anything to any group? All have they done is, using their superiority in numbers, giving prominence to Sinhala language and Buddhism! Then you have the audacity to call others fools!

        It is said FOOLS rush in where Angels fear to tread. So I do not have to point out who the FOOL is as exhibited below.

        Dawn Dale, ask your self whether a Tamil can ever aspire to be a future President, PM, CJ, AG, IGP, DIGs, Commanders of the Forces, and any of those positions they held before when a system of Democracy prevailed in the past up to about the late ’60s? While we the Sinhalese boast of a 2500 year history have effectively closed doors to the Tamils to reach any of the above mentioned posts, contrary to the US with a much relatively less a 200 year history have allowed the post of President and many senior posts in the system for the Blacks and the Coloured.

        Eusense, to your question whether the Sinhalese have not given everything they can to the Tamils? There is a big difference between what the Sinhalese Can and what they should, if we are to be recognised as Civilised. Yes the Sinhala govts from ’70 have discarded meritocracy and adopted standardization to favour the Sinhalese under the pretext of helping the less privileged. This Policy has only curbed the Tamils, to appease the Chauvinist Sinhalese, while the numbers of the Less Privileged has grown and still languishes and the Govt is today contemplating of shutting down Free Education. Besides the Sinhalese govts have very openly discriminated the Tamils and today it is very evident of the number of Tamils holding high office, in comparison to even their ethnic ratio, which never should be the case if we are preaching Equality.

        I recommend to the Sinhalese of your ilk to obtain a Tamil identity and move about society to learn first hand the experiences and disadvantages of being a Tamil at the hands of An Uncivilised Sinhalese as your self.

    A 45 pages ‘white wash’ report defending the SL forces, especially the Mutur massacres ? I’m sure, now every one will believe your story and arguments. Nice try professori. Money is talking indeed ! Denial has become a profession and a business in this country. Every one is denying every thing, be it forces, politicians, and even some of the so called intellectuals who are blinded by sheer or sneaky racism and inhuman values. These people are simply biased and doesn’t like accepting anything against them or the unruly forces or their race. Why are they so heartless and trying to defend all undefendable atrocities of a terrorist government ?
    You, educated guys, accept something at least for a change and take responsibility for crimes committed against civilians, aid workers, students, without trying to hide everything like cowards. Be honest and straight forward. Even the so called ” world’s worst terrorist outfit” Tigers have claimed responsibility for a number of their ‘crimes’ openly and honestly. Be honest to yourself, first and be a gentleman.

      They the PC candidates for the upcoming PC elections, “electric chair” is going to be the key issue. Wada pitiya, Balaya are the good kind of few programs that the public could make a real picture about the ground realities. This sounds to many that this is going to be the reality – since they are kept away from BUT THE FACTS about electric chair. All these may sound villagers like “take care, billos are coming”.

      As opposition leader, RW openly challenged MR to come for a public debate on the issue was just ignored. This is nothing but an another attempt to decieve the masses in this country. They the rulers are well aware of the manner how to wrap gulible/vulnerable/naive masse around the finger only for their votes. Just for these days, they make those masses hopeful for just for unheard jobs. All these are just tricks played on them.

      Wait and the see same guilible masses would support these men again. If yes, that has lot to do with those masses – and their info flow. State media are biased to them, every second is being kept as ” his excellancy President-MR” as if they have nothing but to recite “geethika” for him.
      These representatives seem to have been made blind. This is the very case in Zimbabwe. But as facts prove, those folks in Zimbabwe or Indonesia are not literate like the lankens. As one of the CT writers, clearly pointed out – LITERATE but STUPID is what instantly came to my mind looking at all the circus.
