We Won’t Hunt Down War Heroes, We Will Ensure There Won’t Be Another War In Sri Lanka – Sirisena

President Maithripala Sirisena on Wednesday declared that his government will ensure that Sri Lanka will never return to war, and all necessary steps were being taken to promote post war reconciliation in the country.Maithripala Sirisena

Speaking at the ceremony to commemorate the war heroes in Battaramulla, Sirisena also said that certain people who put war heroes behind bars, are today going around creating a fear psychosis saying the current government are hunting down war heroes.

“We are not hunting down our war heroes, after all we were not the ones who jailed the main war hero and got him to wear prison clothes,” Sirisena said.

“The people gave us the country with the expectation that we will work towards ensuring that our country does not go back to a war. This is not an easy task, but we will ensure the faith kept in us is maintained and we will take all necessary steps to strengthen reconciliation in Sri Lanka,” he said.

He called on politicians, war heroes and the people to join hands in this reconciliation process. “It is not an easy task to unite the hearts of the people while fulfilling of the responsibilities of a post-conflict era after ending the war physically. Politicians, war heroes and the people of the entire country should get together to strengthen the reconciliation process,” Sirisena added.

    “We Won’t Hunt Down War Heroes, We Will Ensure There Won’t Be Another War In Sri Lanka – Sirisena”

    That is pure rhetoric. War or not, it cannot be simply decided by a Government. We can only hope for but we can never be sure there won’t be war. There are two sides and if the other side pushes for war, you are simply helpless but to go for a war against your wishes. I am sure My3 knows this. So if other side once again demands Eelam and prepares for war is My3 going to give Eelam for the sake of never to have a war? This is very clear his speech is only rhetoric without substance.

    But I can see the veiled message he is trying to tell through this rhetoric that he will not prosecute war criminals. That is all to his nicely covered rhetoric.

    Do not trust local investigations and local judges, we can see what the verdict will be. My3 has reveled it if anyone intelligent to interpret. They will not find any soldiers guilty of war crimes! That verdict has already been decided, the rest of the local inquiry and the hearing by the local judges are merely a drama and mockery for international and local consumption.

    We all know how Thajudeen’s murder during Rajapakse’s time was covered up by all officers conniving, including the police and the JMO making it a Road accident! This case was taken up again by the present Government only for political reasons to checkmate Rajapakse and not because to bring law and order to the country and to sympathize with the dead ruggerite. The same corruption and nepotism still flourishing under My3 who promised to completely eradicate but after getting elected simply allowed the old practice to continue for their own personal benefits.

    What has happened to the young motorcyclist who was hit and run by a Minister’s vehicle? No action taken. It may be the fault of the motor cyclist but Minister failed to stop after being hit, because the other involved is now critically ill in hospital. So nothing has changed to bring rule of law or transparency, but only to use the law to seek revenge against their political enemies.

    I could tell only an International Investigation with International judges could deliver justice to the civilian victims of war crimes who suffered at the hands of the military. We could clearly read between the lines what My3 implied by his speech, no soldiers will be prosecuted for their war crime if any.

    Yes Yes Mr.Prezi. We will not hunt down war heros. Only put them in jail. We will not hunt down war heros. Only let terrorist sympathizers to commemorate dead terrorists. We will not let anyone to carve out a separate state within but allow to run freely a defacto state. Way to go!

    This is Bodhi Sira preaching to the converted..

    The poor Dalits wouldn’t want to have anything to do with him.

    With the Yahapalana VAT hike, our Dalits have been hit hardest,

    And they are forced to pay more for their staples,from Keeramin to Kurrakkan.

    Not a single job for the Dalits has been created, since Sira’s Yahapalanaya kicked in.

    Elite mates of the Yahapalanaya on the other hand, are raking in big time,

    Bond Commissions, Inflated Rent, and Santhosams like the LKR One Billion for the half wits in Parliament are their new forte.

    Sira’s party Gen Sec is paying , fellow Yahapalana mate LKR 21 Million a month as rent,

    Sira’s Hero . is doing even better with his LKR 70 Million set of wheels driving around from his office which was rented ar LKR 10 Million a month, to give us Yahapalanaya.

    And Sira’s mate who is the 2IC to UNP Galleon Ravi ,was boasting that they are going to collect LKR 100 Billion a year from the jacked up Yahapalana VAT.

    Sira’s general sec had only 12 people to listen to his speech, in his own Electorate. Even those 12 came as gratitude for his old man who was a true blue SLFPer..

    That says all about how much respect and affinity , our Dalits have for these betrayers.

    No, Mr. president. We need another bigger war, without the attendant violence and blood shed, to fill our prisons with our criminal polticians, public servants and businessman who have swindled us left, right and center. This war should start today, not tomorrow. This war will end all future wars between us, the people.

    If you do not have the guns and the men to fight this war, bring in the guns and men, from wherever you can, as your predecessor did to finally defeat the LTTE. Let it be a blietzgreig ! Do not hesitate. We would back you to the hilt.

    If you cannot, say so and get lost!

      Yes, yes..LTTE boys are saints.

      Give me a break. Look who is being remembered in Jaffna University and by Sivajilingham? Ealam Flag was clearly displayed but this spineless government would not do a thing. I do not mind them holding remembrance for innocent civilians but by having Eelam flag and talking about LTTE, you are fanning racist sentiments of both sides. That can lead to another conflict but this government does not seem to care.

          only difference is the confederate’s did not use the so called civilians it claimed it was fighting for by gun point to protect a dying military out fit, in particular its leaders, as a human shield. but still good comparison as both outfits were fighting for a vile idea of supremacy.

    If the government doesn’t want to hunt the war criminals, then the nature will hunt them like hanuman burnt srilanka before. There is no place to hide. Today or tomorrow they will be punished – Srisena is not God to decide but he gained few karma points by saying that in public. The war criminal’s end is already decided by God. If srisena is guilty himself, he have to rectify by providing a political solution – may be that is what he meant be not allowing any war in the future. He can reduce his karma that way.

    There are persons labelled ‘war heroes’.
    But, there are also war criminals.
    Sri Lanka promised to try them in hybrid courts, by supporting the UNHRC resolution.

    But it seems that all war criminals have now become war heroes.
    Hence, there are none to be prosecuted.

    This may be the explanation which may be submitted at the next meeting of UNHRC.

      There is nothing heroic about war.

      War involves the killing and maiming of thousands or millions of people, including many innocent bystanders.

      War is not about heroes and glorious death.

      War is nothing but blood and gore.

      War shreds people into bloody little pieces, it tears them limb from limb, or it burns them alive.

      War is the ultimate horror that man inflicts upon man.

      When the minorities let others think for who they should vote they are just robots expecting a new paradise.

    Of course, the Government need not hunt down war heroes. But it is necessary to hunt down those who did participate in “criminal” activities making use of the the war. One such case is the “disappearance” of Eknligoda. There is a “campaign” organized and headed by the ex President, the “Joint Opposition” and the “BBS” to get those accused in that case acquitted stating all those in remand custody are “War Heroes”. Should that be allowed? No. They would have been engaged in the war, but if any of them are guilty of that “Disappearance” all such persons must be made liable and punished accordingly. That is the only way to give credence to real “War Heroes”.

    This speech is the one dividing the country. Two celebrations are going in the country. One is in the south, to dupe the IC community, without telling the real name, but war hero’s’ victory celebration. Other one is in North by the oppressed ones, looking for the tortured and murdered by the so called war Heros.

    The War Heros’ Party broke a million coconuts to the Hindu Devale and prayed curse for the country. Now the Colombo and the country is submerged under water.They wiped out Tamils from their ancestral lands. Nature and God are repeatedly trying to wash off the Blood and the sin spilled in the country by the War Heros. It is a shameful act calling the Rapist Army, who has been listed as on in 22 uses rape as weapon, a heros. The 42 criminals listed as the War criminals in the OISl report are not Heros. They all must be put on UN electric Chair.

    First he will let the corruption continue to happen, soon after he cam from anti-corruption conference in London. Now just before the UNHCR resolution he signals all murderers are war heroes. So when did military became war heroes killing their citizens while fighting rebels? and recently Rohan Gunasekara self proclaimed so called Terrorism expert says that, govt. Bangsladesh should not persecute the war criminals who killed millions during the separation from Pakistan, but forget the past and move forward towards the future. So why not go and preach the Isrelians this and see what they have to say about nazi war criminals still being persecuted. So his theory is any one can get away with ethnic cleansing with impunity. And then we hear that there is pressure for the Tamils “compromise” with what is going on in Colombo circle. To conclude, this is hypocrisy and stupidity at its best. Mr President, there is no more war, but there will never be peace in Sri Lanka, the way you are running. You are conniving the truth and your obligation on reconsiliation. Go ahead be the desired leader of the banana republic. We don’t see any core difference between you and MR clan. And you are a traitor to the people who voted you in. Not a good sign of leadership.

    But prosecute war criminals, looters and corrupted politicians(including yourself) and officials who were responsible for the current state of the country. If you can do that at least make an honest attempt to do so, then YOU ARE A HERO in any one’s book.

      Here is the simple definition:

      The critical faculty is a product of education and training. It is a mental habit and power. It is a prime condition of human welfare that men and women should be trained in it. It is our only guarantee against delusion, deception, superstition, and misapprehension of ourselves and our earthly circumstances.

        Who the hell are you to call people Dimwit, Stupid, Ass ect?

        When you first wrote to this blog, you wanted all sinhala / demala / muslim / burgher out of the native land. You were going to deport the sinhalese to northern India and the tamils to southern India.

        Native Vedda – July 1, 2013 at 3:57 pm

        “Your ancestors came from South India by Kallathoni whereas my people walked and walked all the way from where human races had originated. Stupid Tamils and stupid Sinhala/Buddhists are related to each other not to my people. Both of you should go back to the island history as to how the North, East, West and South was won by the Kallthonies from India. We are a pure race”.

        Native Vedda May 15, 2014 at 9:51 pm

        “You have your mother country in Bihar, Bengal and Tamilnadu to fall back to. Remember this is not your island by right. You are only a guest here as long as you share the land, resources and space, heritage too. Otherwise pack your bags and go back to Tamilnadu”

        .

        But now:

        Native Vedda – May 2, 2016 at 6:28 pm

        Tamils didn’t fight a long war far from it. They suffered under VP and Sinhala/Buddhists state for many years.

        Transitional justice and human rights….

        So what made you change your mind? Did you get your DNA results back? Or, did your grandfather tell you that you are really a COAST VEDDA?

        Let’s make 20th May 2016 the day you come out as a Coast Vedda. Remember we at the Colombo Telegraph will be right behind you.

        From Wikipedia
        The Coast Veddas or Vedar, by self-designation, form a social group within the minority Sri Lankan Tamil ethnic group of the Eastern province of Sri Lanka.

        They are primarily found in small coastal villages from the eastern township of Trincomalee to Batticalao. Nevertheless, they also inhabit a few villages south of Batticalao as well. They make a living by fishing, slash and burn agriculture, paddy cultivation of rice, basket weaving for market and occasional wage labor.

        Anthropologists consider them to be partly descended from the indigenous Vedda people, as well as local Tamils. Residents of the Eastern province consider their Vedar (Tamil for “hunter”)[2] neighbors to have been part of the local social structure from earliest times, whereas some Vedar elders believe that their ancestors may have migrated from the interior at some time in the past.

        They speak a dialect of Sri Lankan Tamil that is used in the region. During religious festivals, people who enter a trance or spirit possession sometimes use a mixed language that contains words from the Vedda language.[3] Most Vedar are Hindu Saivites and worship a plethora of folk deities, as well as the main Hindu deities such as Murugan, Pillaiyar and Amman. They also maintain the ancestor worship tradition of the interior Veddas.

        Clan divisions, if they still exist, do not play an important role in choosing of marriage partners or place of domicile. Most identify themselves as a caste among the Tamils as opposed to a separate ethnic group.[4] Their economic conditions have been impacted by the Sri Lankan civil war.

        Dear Native,

        You may have been brought to my motherland with Silver Spoons in both ends like most of your UNP buddies.

        But thanks to Colonel Olcott, there are tens of thousands of rural Sinhala Buddhists making a decent living, who otherwise would have been either barracking for Sira ,or betraying their own people for a bath parcel from Sira , bought with the UNP and Diaspora money.

        So just butt out from criticising a great man, who gave the opportunity for at least some Sinhala Rural Buddhists to have a fair . in spite of the great obstacles put in their path by the ass licking UNPers and the free loaders who sucked up to the British.

          “But thanks to Colonel Olcott, there are tens of thousands of rural Sinhala Buddhists making a decent living, who otherwise would have been either barracking for Sira ,”

          Henry Steel Olcott died in 1907.

          UNP was founded in September 1946.

          What has Oldcott got to do with UNP?

          Henry Steel Olcott gave you Protestant Buddhism and the Sinhala/Buddhist flag. Since then the island had gone raving bonkers. He helped you to invent a new religion, the Sinhala/Buddhism. Buddhist have been converted to Sinhala/Buddhism.

          Your “Tamil” forefathers had foolishly let an American to meddle with Buddhism which proves you are nothing but a secret western lackey.

          Please switch to Jack Daniels from free Scotch.

      “”jim softy the dimwit””

      “This is a Joke. Bag pipes and british Soldiers. One complete joke. Maithripala is destroying Sri lanka.”

      The joke is on you, A.K Sumanasiri and your uniqueness of culture language and the way you do things. JR’s home had Sinhal Ulu not Sinhala Olu.- 2500 years??

      Where did this tile come from but Spanish Missionary Tiles 1/2 round seen in the colonial bungalows of USA even today.
      you folk had no roof but lived under trees??
      You still have the woven palm which came from India.
      Even history professor Nira went to VOC to look for `hatte mahele` and got stuck because Singer machines originated French/English but she was not native just passport and education does not carry long way. She did the double with 2500 years too. Then came the issue of Strauss-Kahn and IMF so it was all trouble.When you are dishonest it shows at some stage.

      yours is a case of lust for power and glory while trampling everything in your path like Asoka the Stupid. He was never a direct descendant but like Wijeweera who took over the nation when all was calm- The same way as Greece fell to the Romans while they were developing culture.

      Get your eggheads to grow more cannabis down under because Australians don’t give pin padde but when psychologically affected they go to schools of Buddhism for cure at Burma which was cheap like the Europeans go to Tibet.

      Finally you will need to parade for DNA test or jump in the sea and go to where you came from.

      Jim Shitty the dimwit, so how do you want to fight wars these days?…………..if bagpipes are British (Idiot, these are not British but Scottish), are you going to go to battle on elephants with swords and metal shields? If you carry a gun then it is not Sri Lankan. Also are you going to wear slippers or army boots to war? Dumb [Edited out], does not even think before he writes.

        “or this Cambridge book online about “coast veddas: “

        So you believe in the Bible and Mahavamsa as the Gospel truth?

        you never read reviews of Trilogies by Professors on Professors.

        Stay gullible in your well.

        There is Arawak Caribbean and nearby Andamanese.

        you are more like Arawak Caribbean see your curly hair unfolding- thats your DNA not his_story.

          I see you have gone into a trance, are you a Veda Vellalar?

          Vedar sometimes refer to themselves as “Veda Vellalar”, thus claiming a high caste ranking (the Vellalar are given the highest ritual position within the caste structure of Sri Lankan Tamils in many regions).

          They also claim to marry into the higher castes of the neighboring region, such as Karaiyar. But some higher ranked castes did not consider Vedar quite their equals, although still placing them above the lower castes. Members of the Karaiyar caste sometimes downplayed their connections to Vedar as there was stigma attached to such unions. Field studies have indicated that mixed marriages across all caste groups of the eastern littoral was possible with Vedar.

          Vedar themselves claimed that they would not marry into lower Tamil castes such as Ambattar (barbers), Vannar (washerman) and Pallar (agricultural workers), but field studies indicated that such unions did sometimes take place
