Will Work With UNHRC And Pillay Towards International Inquiry On Sri Lanka: UK

Britain will assess Sri Lanka’s compliance with its international obligations and implementation of recommendations contained in the 2013 resolution co-sponsored by the UK when the UN Human Rights Council meets in March this year, the country’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office said.

“At the UN Human Rights Council in March 2014, as assessment will be made of Sri Lankan progress to date. The UK will not hesitate to play an active role if progress in not forthcoming,” the FCO said in a letter addressed to Rajasingham Jayadevan, a British national and former abductee of the LTTE.

Jayadevan wrote to British Prime Minister David Cameron following the Premier’s recent visit to Colombo. In response the FCO has asserted its official position on Sri Lanka.

“The Prime Minister, Foreign Secretary and Mr Swaire attended CHOGM in Sri Lanka due to the importance the UK attaches to the Commonwealth. In attending CHOGM, we also took advantage of a key opportunity to deliver a clear message to the Sri Lankan government: that we expect them to make progress on human rights, accountability, reconciliation and political settlement,” the letter said.

The letter said it was now important that there is a credible, transparent and independent inquiry into the events at the end of the Sri Lankan military conflict. “We share concerns of UN High Commissioner for Human Rights that there have been no credible efforts to independently investigate the allegations to date. If credible investigations have not begun properly by March 2014, we will use our position on the United Nations Human Rights Council to work with the UN Human Rights Commissioner and call for an independent inquiry,” the letter said

    After looting us for centuries as colonials, after contributing to the suffering of Sri Lankans for 3 decades by forcing us to negotiate peace with armed separatist criminals what kind of scumbags would come back to investigate us and dictate terms? Ofcourse corrupt, war mongering british politicians!

      Steady on Ilibral! Britain left Sri Lanka with a sound infra structure and a unifying constitution. It is the vision less Sinhala Buddhists who ruined the nation you cannot blame the British for your shortcomings! Moreover, it banned the LTTE and prosecuted the fund raisers helping you to beat the LTTE. What else you want? She is now asking you to fulfil the promises you made in terms resolving the ethnic issue. What have you against it?

          Ben,

          Cameron on a white, brown or black horse it does not matter! The fact is that if such an intervention or “noble” intentions were to rescue Sri Lanka from the tyranny of the Rajapakasas all the better! The Sinhala Buddhists are chronically insecure and they are incapable of seeing through the Rajapaksas; they will stay obscured to the point when Rajapaksas bleed the country dry along with totally destroying ethnic harmony! Moreover, there is a most important phenomenon called “Justice”; it does not matter how it arrives; when it arrives, the country will see the light of day!

            After all they did exactly the same in Afganistan, Iraq, Palestine etc. Merit list is sooo..long.

              Ben,

              Islamic Fundamentalism and West; it is another debate; I will avoid conflating Sri Lanka in this context.

              Iraq; I did not lose my sleep over disposing of Saddam! The West did not kill the a million people; muslims killed muslims. The sectarian killings are orchestrated by Al Quidea in the hope of destabilising Iraq. You can argue the West created such a condition; I agree with you on this. If Saddam remained in power and allowed to use his oil wealth to build weapons of mass distractions, the security around that region would have been affected. You may ask why is that a concern for the west? It should be a concern for not just for the west but also for a country like Sri Lanka. If Middle East is destabilised, all oil-dependent countries around the world would be find wanting! You can criticise the Bush/Blair act on Iraq rationally or irrationally but stability of the oil producing counties is vitally important not to mention the morality and ethics of maintaining stability benefiting the subjects of those counties!

                  Alan,

                  David Cameron cannot solve our problem; he can create a condition for that to happen. It is conspicuous without any shadow of doubt that the Rajapaksas are not interested in ethnic or religious harmony nor are they interested in democracy. They are intoxicated with the tonic that defeating the LTTE had given them an unparalleled opportunity to build a Rajapaksa empire at the expense of the country let alone the minority concerns!

                  Sinhala Buddhists are chronically insecure; with this state of mind, they are incapable of judging or electing the right people. The opposition is in disarray and MR will use underhand tactics to keep them down unscrupulously. With this in mind, only salvation there is for an international mechanism to put pressure on the Rajapasas. War crimes and crimes against humanity have no doubt been committed during the last stages of the war. The Tamils seek justice and rightly so. I am hoping that by holding Rajapaskas to account, the country can salvage the lost democracy and at the same time Justice for Tamils can be found. Even the mighty Iran had to clime down for an agreement; the tiny Sri Lanka has no option but to obey! It is not a disgrace for the Sri Lankans rather a good fortune that will bring about Good Governance. This is my hope.

                    what a superiority complex these tamils suffer with!

                    It is not because of an isecurity but any decent citizen will abhor foreign intervention on their land. May be as you never had any clinging to any country as this is my motherland you are not able to understand it

                    I few weeks back taught you how any foreign intervention can be disastrous for SL. Your white masters dont give a sh*t whether there is democracy here or not or about human rights. They are worse violators of HR more than SL ever could be.

                    And where was your concern towards democracy and rule of law when Prabhakaran was there? what about this rule of law in eelam? couldnt even provide a panadol for its people and what rule of law in Eelam?

                    Any person who wants foreign intervention is not a son of this country. You can never be an equal citizen.

                    MR is a popular leader and any foriegn intervention is disastrous for SL.

                The stability of middle is vital so UK/US can invade sovereign countries but it is wrong for SL Army to defeat insurgents within it’s own country. why? stability of Sri Lanka should not be a concern?

                Then he says UK/US didn’t kill a million Iraq civilians but Muslim insurgents did but fails to see that civilian causalities in our war was bc tigers kept a human shield and wants an investigation against the country by US/UK.

                Thousands of people died in iraq in iraqi invasion, and due to unstability in iraq.
                500,000 civilians including women and children died in iraq during the american imposed sanctions.
                Even today abnormal and disabled children are being born in Iraq due to depleted uranium usage by Americans which american media doesnt show!!

        They banned LTTE? You must be joking. If they did, how the hell did LTTE theoretician manage to live in London till his death, write LTTE hero’s day speeches for its leader and issue public death threats to LTTE’s opponents like Douglas from UK? This is all the while LTTE was having a field day here in Sri Lanka blowing up pretty much everything under the Sun. How funny?

        How many letters did this man Rajasingham Jayadevan write to UK PM then? Oh wait, he was a member of LTTE then!

        When the British left, 60% of university intake came from Colombo and 30% came from Jaffna and rest of the island contributed less than 5% — does this sound to you like sound infrastructure development?

        Tell me how much compensation did the British pay to people who lost land in hill country for tea plantations?

        Did the British take permission from locals before they engineered this demographic change by introducing cheap labor from Tamil Nadu?

          Navin,

          Independence was gained in 1948! Can you study the British history around that time to figure out the situation of the working class? They did whatever they were doing in Britain in their colonies! Only post world war 11, the labour moment got their act together and established welfare state and national health services. They began to tackle the inner-city slams in their major cities like London, Manchester, Birmingham, Glasgow and Liverpool. By this time, the British left Sri Lanka! Nevertheless, the infrastructure left behind was more than sufficient to build on. They left Sri Lanka with a perfect footing; a unitary constitution with a thoroughly workable parliamentary system. The Sinhala Buddhists ruined it fairly and squarely; there is no getting away from this fact!

          If British had remained for another 50 years, if Hong Kong anything to go by, Sri Lanka would have been an envy of the South-East Asia. What your ilk need to do is to recognise the gross mismanagement of the country and take measures to rectify. By the way, if the Brits had not amalgamated the territories into one, you would not see Sri Lanka as one today. If anything, the Tamils should be cursing the Brits and not other way around!

              HK governance did not stand still; colonialism was replaced with a form British territory with self-rule that the locals did not want to lose. What does this say to you? We got independence and the Sinhala Buddhists messed it up totally; why don’t you admit it? Stop pointing your fingers at the Brits and start doing some introspections.

The Brits were the colonial masters; colonialism mutated into british territories with self-rule. Independence of course better than being a territory; were we ready for independence? What did we do with the independence? We have had two armed insurrections with bloody consequences; no lessons whatsoever have been learned. What the heck your Right has achieved apart from bloodletting? Wake up man; there is nothing wrong with learning from mature democracies around the world and doing things right for a change!

                    Of-course there is nothing wrong with learning from mature democracies but the problem in your logic is British ceylon was not a democracy. And there were uprisings in british times too and they didn’t sit down with the rioting locals to talk peace.

                    Before you praise about the “prosperous british ceylon” learn about the per capita of Sri Lanka when they left in 1948. British ceylon was a paradise to a chosen privileged few but not to the vast majority. Just bc we failed after independence it doesn’t mean we were an advanced nation in 1948. and don’t make it sound like your disastrous quest for a separate mono ethnic state didn’t have any effect on our fortunes.

              ‘Majority of Sri Lankans’? Thew state-run media and the journalists who get interest free loans do let let Sri Lankans know what is really happening to them. They do not know why the international community led by US and UK insist on “human rights, accountability, reconciliation and political settlements”. Can you understand why the military interfere in the day-today civilian activities of people in the north and east? David Cameron saw IDPs languishing under tin-thatched camps while the military occupy their own houses and agricultural lands. Have you noticed the announcements that the government hurriedly making about closing down of military camps and disarming paramilitaries to convince the IC that it is implementing the LLRC recommendations now?

              Why cannot the SLG let people in the north and east live their live without being controlled? Why not create a situation so that IDPs living in the south and refugees languishing in India return to their own homes in NE?

            No one here doubt the mismanagement of the Sri Lankan leaders that ruled the office, but saying that Brits left Sl in a goot footing is too high.

            The ones who dwelve in cities like Colombo, Jaffna, and Kandy might have been better off. That was because brits needed a set of indigenous ppl to work for them. And some roads for them to get their tasks done.

            It is extremely disgusting to see the colonial slave mindset of tamils. And no sinhala leaders werent the only one who created problems, others too share that responsibility.

            There is no large scale infrastructure built by Brits and the ones they did was to support their robbing. When Brits left larger part of SL was rural area where people didnt even have access to a hospital. I detest the mindset of many comment here who were undoubtedly fellows of past ceylon. the reality is in their ceylon the rest of SL was a downtrodden people in their own country. The ones who talk about a prosperous ceylon that was there were the ones who lived a better life than their unfortunate fellow countrymen who and lived on the crumbs thrown at them by the British.

            I see many sinhalese recognising the mismanagement by the SL government of many problems but it is very rarely we see Tamils who are even ready to accept that they too did wrong.

              Other thing is that you need to assess the infrastructure in the context of 1939. 1939 was the year when the second world-war started. I have said this before, 1939 British country sides and inner-city slams were far worse places for the poor than what it was like in Sri Lanka. If you do not believe me, you do some research!

                I didnt say Britian was good in infrastructure but i have to take your words in your claim that ceylon had better infra than Britian in 1948 which i highly doubt.

                The condition of british infra is not relevant here, what is relevant is the so called infra stucture left by the brits. And yes they did left some and it is not that good or was not helpful to people of the whole country as you believe.

                The reality is MAJORITY of the people in SL were a downtrodden people whose land was grabbed and lived in a under developed country. It was the post leaders of SL that developed infra even to this level, especially during past UNP rule and now after MR.
                The notion that SL should be grateful towards brits for infrastructure is a ludicrous claim. Even or that little number of roads and bridges built by Brits the people in SL have paid their dues long time ago.

                By justifying what Brits did by showing roads built by brits you are insulting the rural disadvataged people who lived in SL at that time.

                between why dont you look at the infra structure development by Mahinda in the north in the same way you look at what british did? based on your logic with regards to gratitude towards british, you must worship MR.

          “Tell me how much compensation did the British pay to people who lost land in hill country for tea plantations?”

          Is this why MR Gang is grabbing land in the North and East to balance it out? Who owns the tea plantations these days? Did the Brits take the land away with them? Tea was the major source of foreign income for several decades. There is no getting away from the fact Brits did not pay compensation. There is a vast difference between colonial rule to an elected government; it is the elected government that is stealing land within N&E with impunity; what do you say to this?

            What is worse? nationalisation of land by a state govern or land grab by a foreign colonial rule?

            The fact that brits robbed people from their land, killed the ones who resisted and changed demorgraphy deliberately is wrong. And you justifying that while pointing at SL gov’s land grab in North is disgusting. If you are against SL gove’s land grab you can NO way justify what the Brits did. It kind of questions the moral high ground you want to take.

            And yes Brits established tea estates and at what costs? The native people then didnt want tea estates,but they lost their age old system of cultivations and agriculture. their lands were used for a commercial venture of Brits that the native people really didnt need.

            Talking about the problems faced by tamils is a different thing, but the mere hypocrasy that one can see from tamils is disguting.

              The other point I made is that, citing Hong Kong, if the Brits had remained for another 50 years, the country would have been the envy of South East Asia; I still stand by this claim. I am 100% sure that the Brits would have done far better job than the Sinhala Buddhists!

              You need to understand first and foremost as to what colonialism is in comparison to an elected government. Colonial master grabbed land for tea plantation; they did not consult or paid compensation because they were colonial masters. By contrast, the Sri Lankan government is elected by the people, it is incumbent on them to consult and compensate by principles of democratic norms. If you do not see the contrast I cannot help I am afraid!

                First dont get so emotional when some one points at wrongs of your master.

                And here is where you justified it!

                “Is this why MR Gang is grabbing land in the North and East to balance it out? Who owns the tea plantations these days? Did the Brits take the land away with them? Tea was the major source of foreign income for several decades. There is no getting away from the fact Brits did not pay compensation. There is a vast difference between colonial rule to an elected government; it is the elected government that is stealing land within N&E with impunity; what do you say to this? “

                when some one talked about the land grab, invasion by the brits of the sinhala people in central parts of the country, the talk of infrastruture, tea estates and pointing at mahinda’s land grabbing IS justifying what brits did.

                yes brits left a some form of an infra structure but they did NOT built it for the people in SL. They didnt grow tea for the natives. They did all those things for their own well being.

                And saying Brits left SL in a good footing interms of infrastructure is wrong! dead wrong! The people in SL especially the ones in rural areas lived under enormous hardships and difficult situation in their own country. People who lived in rest of the country except in big cities lived a very difficult life in their own land. That cannot be disputed. Ceylon was NEVER a good country for its people, except the british and the ones who depened on their crumbs.

                I repeatedly told you no one question the mismanagement of Sinhala leaders, i dont dipute that. I agree with you on that. Why are you repeating it all the time? lack of any other proper argument?

                And i dont know whether Brits would have done a far better job, even if they did what is the point of living under someone’s rule in your own land. I will detest that sort of prosperity and value my freedom and dignity as a Lankan. And Mr BI though you repeatedly say we didnt have Sinhala Buddhist leaders only a handful of them most of them were christians. why ignore this deliberately?

                Who ever grabbed land it is a wrong thing ne, this is like the arguement that what LTTE did cannot be pointed out because LTTE is a terrorist organisation. Being called a terrorist org is not a licence to massacre people, same way just because brits were a colonial ruler what they did cannot be justified over what an elected gov do.

                At least the land grab by elected gove would be used for the interests of the country more than what brits did. The simple truth is land grabbing by brits is a despicable act. so are the land grabs by the government.

                Are nt you feeling ashamed of yourself to the length you can go to JUSTIFY what a murderous colonial power did to a native population simply because they throw some crumbs at you?

                In Australia when whites used to annihiliate the aborigines and various other crimes their biggest supporters were fellow aborigines. Your attempt to justify what Brits did to the people remind me of that.

        You are free to embrace colonials as your masters but please don’t push that down our throats.

        Doesn’t it occur to you that Sri Lanka was perfectly fine with regard to ethnic tensions before British coming along and creating special privileged classes out of our population?

        The things you bitch about like, Tamil as a national language, federal solutions etc were not there when british ruled this country but you were perfectly happy then aren’t you lot? Only when the looters left and power returned to democratically elected governments you suddenly remembered your “equal rights”.

        Also British only banned LTTE in 2001. Seriously do you need 2 decades for that? Even that banning was not effective considering Adela balasingham is still roaming free after aiding to kill Sri Lankans and a heart attack had to do justice to Anton Balasingham. What sort of hypocrites would first ban LTTE and then force us to negotiate peace with them?

          To start with, when the British arrived, there was unconquered Kandian kingdom and separately administrated north and south territories. What ethnic harmony you are talking about?

          Why do you think when Tito of Yugoslavia died, Yugoslavia soon broke up into several countries such as Serbia, Montenegro, Macedonia, Bosnia, Albania, and Croatia? Why didn’t they stay together like they did under Tito?

            What is wrong is, the pluralistic Tamils in the Eastern Province, Colombo and Upcountry don’t want to come under the domination of the authoritarian and castetist Jaffna Tamils in a Saiva-Vellala ethno-fascist Eelam. And of course the Muslims of Jaffna would totally reject an ethnically cleansed Tamil exclusivist homeland. Who gave you the authority to represent all Tamils? That itself shows your Jaffna presumptions and patronisation. With regard to history, I don’t want to even go into your spurious claims except to ask: Are you prepared to send all the upcountry Tamils back to Tamil Nadu if you want to restore the pre-colonial status quo?

                  So my initial qn still exists.

              Steady your horses; you have made myriad of assumptions! First you need to recognise that Tamil speaking people who reside predominantly within North & East; it is a democratic necessity to allow a form self-rule within one country. There is no talk about “Saiva-Vellala ethno-fascist Eelam”! What is explicit is the hegemonic Sinhala Buddhist rule with a lopsided constitution favouring the Sinhala Buddhists. If the Tamils residing in South can chose to stay there or relocate if they so wish. It is same for the Sinhala and Muslims; no one is forcing or putting obstacles at choosing their preferred place of residence.

              If you do not recognise the need for a meaningful power devolution mechanism, you will end up conceding for more than what is acceptable at present. You cannot subjugate the minorities.

              What is “spurious” about my claims? Please go ahead and challenge me if you can. I have never asked to go back to pre-colonial period; where did you see me asking this? I was merely setting history straight!

            If you want to travel back in time don’t settle at a time that suits your separatist needs. There were 2 provincial kingdoms(not nations) when Portuguese arrived but each one acknowledged the king of kotte as the king of the island. and what about the times when whole island was ruled by one kingdom? can we travel back to such a time to our convenience and then claim no provincial power is needed in sl?

            and where does it say that separatism is a right? If so and when north is given to you, does the Muslims of north have right to separate from Tamil eelam and create their own nation? Do any sinhala group have a right to further separate from eelam and create their own nation? Do Tamils in wellawatte have a right create another nation in wellawatte if they feel so?

        British didnt built a sound infrastructure as you and many colonial slaves believe. SL lacked a good infrastructure until 70s and 80s.

        The infrastructure Brits built was for their use. That is to steal the wealth of SL and use the slaves in the estates, transport the wealth they robbed and to spend some quality time in cool weather in the highlands in the midst of robbing the natives from colombo.

        There is no question the past leaders of SL contributed to the mayhem in SL now, and what you forget or deliberately miss is that not only Sinhala buddhist (though we have had very few sinhala buddhist leaders)leaders were responsible but tamil leader as well. This circle we can still see.

        And as i pointed out to you earlier, the brits didnt ban LTTE to help us, they banned LTTE after their own white a$$es were blown away by the islamists. had Brits wanted to ban ltte to help SL, they would have done it way back in 1980s.

          Stop talking nonsense! If you had had built a better system and justice, you can criticise the past colonial masters! There was no divide and rule; the Tamils were hard-working and industrious and gained state employments on merits. The way to rectify the imbalance was to bring the rest of the county to the same level through development and education. It is abundantly clear that the Sinhala Buddhists who divided the nation along the racial lines. I say this with authority because, the Sinhala Buddhists were and are the majority that held power.

          Deal with Sinhala Buddhist insecurity then everything else will workout fine. You are indignant towards the Whites, Christians and middle-class, but not even an iota of anger towards the very people who ruined the nation with short-sighted political expediency; what a moron you are indeed. Not everything about the Whites is bad; it is your inability to see beyond colonial hangover that is obscuring your vision!

            The British colonial policy of divide and rule sowed the seeds of renewed tensions between the Sinhalese and Tamil communities after independence. Tamils, although well-educated, were given a disproportionate number of top jobs in the civil service by the British.

              The divide and rule is a misconception as far as Sri Lanka is concerned. This point was debated thoroughly on Groundviews. The accusation is that the Brits established schools in Jaffna to purposely educate the Tamils and in connivance with the Tamil elite the Brits subdued the Sinhala! The accusation is so pathetic no one can prove anything on it.

              American Missionaries established schools in Jaffna; the Brits only sent the American Missionaries to Jaffna because they did not want them near Colombo. This was because America and Britain were not in good terms soon after the America civil war due to accusations that Britain built warships for Confederacy.

                  There is no evidence whatsoever to prove that the Brits favoured the Tamils in state employments. It was because there were comparably more English speaking Tamils available for selection. This is the accepted fact. The accusation is that Brits established schools in Jaffna and purposely educated Tamils in order to divide-and-rule. This is why I mentioned the American Missionaries establishing schools in Jaffna. It is not nonsense it is countering the false claim of Tamils were favoured over the Sinhala!

              If you ask me if Brits should have done more; I would say yeah probably. However, the year was 1948; take 5 years away owing to the war; it was 1943. 1943 Britain was very unfair and lopsided. Class divide and no middle class. Vast improvements came only after the war but by that time Brits handed over the reigns of Sri Lanka to the Sinhala elite!

              What the Brits left in terms of infrastructure and unifying constitution were more than adequate to build a just nation. My point is that we cannot blame the Brits for our shortcomings! I accuse the Sinhala Buddhists because they were and are in power!

                  What the Tamil leaders should have done; they should not have believed in DS Senanayaka’s promise. They should have advocated and obtained a federal structure from the Brits. Having failed on this, they should have stuck with non-violence no matter what; I can easily say this retrospectively! It was wrong of Amirthalingham and co pandering to the Tamil militancy. The Tamil elite should foreseen the danger when the Tamil youth were being radicalised. Once the militants got the upper hand it was all too late!

                    I dont know about a promise by DS. There was no scope for a tamil country in Sl and tamil leaders did ask for that which the brits rejected.

                    You most of the time point at the wrong doings of the sinhala leaders as if they alone are responsible for the current situation. I dont say sinhala politicians are not responsible, they too were very much.
                    But you have pointed out the wrongs by the tamil leaders here in a face saving attempt.

                    “It was wrong of Amirthalingham and co pandering to the Tamil militancy. The Tamil elite should foreseen the danger when the Tamil youth were being radicalised. “

                    So when you point at the sinhala leaders here after add the tamil leaders as well, because they too were responsible. But your position is very mild when you talk about the wrongs by the tamil leaders.

                    I will help you in listing them.

                    1. Tamil leaders in 50s and 60s were largely responsible for nurturing tamil nationalism. when they said one thing to sinhala leaders in colombo, they went and said a totally different thing to tamil people in north. So naturally the expectations of the tamils were higher than the tamil politicians could deliver.

                    2. Chest thumping talks, naked display of tamil nationalism, saying they would make shoes out of sinhalese skin.

                    3. Tamil publications, speeches that were supported by TULF were largely responsible for rising tamil nationalism. The notion that tamils are a smarter race, more intelligent ones were planted in the minds of tamils which were disastrous later.

                    4. Supporting tamil militants.

                    5. Supporting tamil terrorists.

                    6. When LTTE and other tamil militants were killing sinhala people in border villages the tamil people justified it tamil leaders justified it saying these are sinhala settlements.

                    7. LTTE attacked army posts, robbed police stations, banks tamils justified it.

                    8. LTTE started killing tamil policemen TULF justified it saying they are traitors.

                    9. LTTE started killing non TULF tamil politicians including Dore Appa, TULF justified it.

                    10. LTTE started killing TULF mps that went to gov side, TULF justified it.

                    11. LTTE and other militant groups killed poeple in south in suicide bombs, massacres TULF justified it, and even tried to make them strong by combining various militant groups.

                    12. LTTE killed muslims, TULF justified it tamils justified it saying the muslims betrayed them.

                    13. LTTE went against 13A. Tamil leaders justified it.

                    14. LTTE went back many agreements from 1987 to 2005 and never ever comitted themselves to peace, tamil leaders justified it, tamil diaspora continued supporting LTTE

                    15. LTTE killed people but you, tamil diaspora and tamil politicians supported them. Never asked them to stop.

                    See how you too are responsible. Saying sinhala leaders had the power for 66 years is not true, may be before the war started but since 1982 the sinhala leader didnt have enough power to change the direction. You, your leaders, your diaspora had power to stop the war, but you didnt. Now you reaped the end result.

                    The sad thing is we can still see the cycle continuing by arrogant full of ego tamil politicians and tamils like you who justify everything they do.

                      Such,

                      I am sick of repeating myself! I said that the Sinhala Buddhists messed up a golden opportunity to build a nation. The LTTE was a direct result of the failed state. I, even for one sec, justify what the LTTE did; it is undeniable that VP and co were as a direct result of the Sinhala Buddhist chauvinistic policies and mismanagement of the state. Please grow Such!

                      “There was no scope for a tamil country in Sl and tamil leaders did ask for that which the brits rejected.”

                      Did the Tamils ask for a Tamil country? Did they really? How stupid they were.

                      There is also no scope for Tamil country in the future. Therefore they should pack their bags and go home. So should the Sinhalese.

                      ” I dont say sinhala politicians are not responsible, they too were very much.”

                      Who was ruling the island since granting of independence in 1948? Was it the Pandyas, Cholas, Pallavas, Portuguese, Dutch, Brits in control of the island? Was it not the Sinhala/Buddhists majority which elected the government, manned the bureaucracy, armed forces, judiciary, and elected their opposition in parliament? Weren’t they responsible for the nation building process?

                      Did the minorities impose Sinhala only language policy on them by themselves?

                      Did the minorities disenfranchise hard working up country Tamils?

                      Did the minorities start the 1971 armed uprising?

                      Did the minorities kill 18,000 innocent people in 1971?

                      Did the minorities kill another 130,000 innocent people between 1987 and 1990?

                      Were the minorities involved in national or foreign policy formulation?

                      Did the minorities burn down the Jaffna Library?

                      BI,

                      I do not reject the gross mismanagement by the Sinhala leaders since 1948. In fact I repeatedly say I accept that Sinhala leaders fuc*d things up. They are the ones largely responsible. I will repeat that thousand times if you want. My point is Sinhala leaders are NOT alone in the responsibility of fuc*ing things up in this country. Tamil leaders too did. You in various topics say government is not doing enough for reconciliation. And what are you doing? At least do you acknowledge that the manner tamil leaders acted made the situation worse.

                      Not only LTTE but JVP too is a result of failed policies of past governments. Tamils were NOT the only one who suffered due to Sinhala leaders, Sinhala people too did. You talk about land grab by SL gov that belongs to Tamils and yes Sinhala people suffered like that. In 60s Sirimavo brought the disastrous land law where they declared that maximum number of acres that could be owned by a single individual to 50 acres. Who suffered most from that ridiculous policy? Sinhala people. Sinhalese were the ones who engaged in plantation business and they had to part with their lands. This even resulted in destruction of coconut Plantations Island wide. See Tamils were NOT the only ones who became victimized due to past policies.

                      The fact that you are not even ready to acknowledge that tamil politicians did many wrongs to make the situation worse, speaks a ton about how tamils have learnt NO lesson in the past 30 years.
                      Yes Sinhala leaders’ actions gave birth to an LTTE, but who sustained the LTTE? Who sustained the war? Answer this question!
                      Who SUSTAINED LTTE and who SUSTAINED war?? Isn’t it tamils, tamil leaders, tamil diaspora.

                      If Tamil leaders in late 1980s helped SL gover to come to a settlement with the tamil leaders and to arrest the murderous tamil militants then would the war continue for 30 years? If the tamil leaders didn’t back the LTTE then you wouldn’t see a Mullivaikkal. People both Sinhala and tamils wouldn’t have died like that. In 80s when Sinhala leaders had to defend the state with its one hand at the back due to threats from india tamil politicians were enjoying. Didn’t they think Indians are gonna help your boys and deliver the eelam? Didn? Didn’t the tamil politicians and so called tamil elite in this country enjoyed when india using LTTE arm wrestled SL government? And where did it take you? Wasn’t that 30 years of war and mayhem a result of that naïve thinking pattern of tamil leaders?

                      Didn’t tamil leaders of TULF then whipped up tamil nationalism? What about those making slippers out of sinhaleses’ skin story? Don’t you realize how that sort of vituperation has polarized the two people more? And don’t you see how this egoistic arrogant display of nationalism made the situation worse?

                      Sinhala leaders since 1982 couldn’t decide the direction this country would take. Since 1982 there were other factors and also foreign factors. Premadasa, Chandrika and Ranil couldn’t change the direction of the conflict simply because the TAMILS SUSTAINED IT. Arent you taking the responsibility of prolonging the war and causing mayhem in the country and killing people???

                      That is why I am saying tamil leaders too are responsible! And blame them as well!

                      Why this is important? Because the tamils have started in the SAME PATH!

                      Just because you use the pseudonym Veddha dont bring arguments that are not relevant and it questions whether you really understand what others say.

                      I have repeatedly said Sinhala leaders fuc8ed things up in this country, and no 18,000 didnt die in 1971 and 130,000 didnt die in 88-89. You people really like to inflate numbers in your arguments? Is it because your arguments lack substance?

                      And you missed an important question in your list,

                      1. WHO started war?

                      And most importantly

                      2. WHO SUSTAINED WAR by prolonging human suffering and death by their own naivety and arrgonce.

                      I am not going to repeat anymore. Please read the chronicles of events since 1974 compiled by T Sabaratnam who was a Lake house journalist and editor. It is entitled Prabhakaran but it is a chronicle of events that shaped the Tamil polity and militancy.

                      http://velupillaiprabhakaran.wordpress.com/2012/12/27/biography-of-velupillai-pirapaharan-by-t-sabaratnam/

                      @BI,

                      Either you have problems in your comprehension or you deliberately miss the point. Yes i have thousand times said yes yes yes sinhala leaders and their policies created circumstances for tamil militancy. I am NOT rejecting it.

                      Everyone except some irrational fellows acknowledge that. But the sinhala leaders and their policies alone didnt create it, Tamil leaders made the situation worse.

                      And they are doing that again.

                      Are you that thick to even acknowledge how Tamil leaders whip up tamil nationalism and supported early militancy and then terrorism.
                      what is this arrogance from your side even to acknowledge that you, your leaders did wrong and that the wrongs did by the tamil leaders hugely influencial in shaping up the events that followed in SL?

                      with this disgusting level of arrogance how can you question the reconciliation from govern?

                      And i was not talking about LTTE, i was talking about war. You didnt answer my question dont try to ignore it, WHO SUSTAINED THE WAR IN SL?

                      Had the tamil diaspora, and tamils as a whole stopped supporting LTTE and funding would the war sustain for 30 years???

                      So who are the ones largely responsible for human suffering 30 years and the deaths at the end of it? Answer honestly!

                      the first step of reconciliation is ackowledging that one’s side did wrong, what have you, tamil leaders and tamils as a whole ackowledged? Do you think reconciliation is Sinhalese coming at your feet and saying sorry for destroying LTTE? Is that the reconciliation you want?

                      And answer my question,

                      Who sustained the war for 30 years, who continued the human suffering for 30 years?????

I gave you a link to read; it will give you all you need to know in terms of Tamil nationalism and it’s causes. Read it first then if you still want to discuss so be it. Tamils are the minority and their insecurity is justifiable. What justification is there for Sinhala Buddhist insecurity? If you deny such a phenomenon exist you understand nothing about this conflict. You have written so much insipid utterances with importunity I have no time for such nonsense.

                      All the discussion in CT is filled with gate crashers; I categorically asked my question from you. If you make any comment and blame others you have the responsibility to answer back. Nice way of fleeing from answering a question. It actually points out how what I am saying is true.
                      Between you have been replying to me ne, how did i suddenly became a gate crasher? :D

                      My point that Tamils do not acknowledge the wrongs done from their side and reluctant to point their finger at tamil politicians is fully displayed here. Just think for a moment and ask yourself (if you have a conscience) whether you people are right in blaming the Sinhalese alone and the government alone when you are not even ready to come forward even an inch in the path to reconciliation.

                      How can you people say that gover or Sinhala people are not doing enough for reconciliation, when you are not even ready to at least acknowledge that your side did wrong and that your politicians did wrong?

                      “. I gave you a link to read; it will give you all you need to know in terms of Tamil nationalism and it’s causes. Read it first then if you still want to discuss so be it.”

                      Aney BI,
                      I have REPEATEDLY said that I accept Sinhala leaders and their policies were a reason for the emergence of tamil militancy. There is no point in you further talking about Sinhala politicians wrong doings because I accept them. I AM WITH YOU ON THAT. Let’s just wish this will go to your head at least now. I have no problem with that stance, because I share that view with you.

                      “Tamils are the minority and their insecurity is justifiable”

                      I thought Tamils were a superior people than the stupid Sinhalese. I cant fathom how these smart tamils can suffer from insecurity. K, Jokes apart where have I said Tamils feeling insecure is wrong?

                      “What justification is there for Sinhala Buddhist insecurity?”
                      Where have I given a justification for Sinhala Buddhist’s insecurity? Have I ever asked about it in this?

                      “? If you deny such a phenomenon exist you understand nothing about this conflict. You have written so much insipid utterances with importunity I have no time for such nonsense.”

                      Where have I said such phenomenon doesn’t exist in our debate here? Where have I even talked about it?
                      I asked you just a simple question, which you are unable to answer and now trying to flee!

                      Who sustained the war for 30 years, who continued the human suffering for 30 years????? —ANSWER!!!!!!!!!!-

                      Aney Such,

                      The link I gave you is a chronicle of events; it is not a document that only depicts the Sinhala wrongs but also graphically lists what the Tamil leaders and all the militant groups did including the LTTE.

                      I wrote the below on 28.01.2014:

                      “What the Tamil leaders should have done; they should not have believed in DS Senanayaka’s promise. They should have advocated and obtained a federal structure from the Brits. Having failed on this, they should have stuck with non-violence no matter what; I can easily say this retrospectively! It was wrong of Amirthalingham and co pandering to the Tamil militancy. The Tamil elite should foreseen the danger when the Tamil youth were being radicalised. Once the militants got the upper hand it was all too late!”

                      Lord Salisbury when dealing with independence of Sri Lanka wanted consensus among all ethnic groups. DS Senanyaka played a big role in convincing the Tamils that they would not be harmed by the majority. He advocated a unitary state as opposed to federal states. This is documented and you can study the records. The Tamil leaders were correct in standing up for their rights; it was absolutely democratic and just. Only issue that, they should have managed the expectations of youth and should have nipped in the bud when militant tendency was emerging; instead, Amirthalingham and co were pandered to and encouraged it. This was a grave mistake.

                      Neither any leader nor any Tamil politician said or encouraged others to say that Sinhala should be killed and their skin should be used to make slippers. You need to show me with evidence that these types of utterances were made. On the other hand, there are ample documents exist to show that the infamous Cyril Matthew made such threats!

                      I used the term gate crashing in the context that when I debate with people who do not acknowledge the wrongs of the Sinhala you join in and divert the debate! The fact remains that the Sinhala Buddhists massed up big time and there is no end in sight; it seems interminable; the minorities of Sri Lanka are in grave danger that includes the Sinhala Christians too!

                      I have nothing more to say.

                      Aney BI,

                      I will go through your link at a free time, anyway there are ample sources to read and learn the history of militancy in SL. I very much doubt how one can get the complete picture by sticking to a book written by a person who consider Prabhakaran as his god/ saviour.

                      Why are you all the time filling your comments with what the sinhala leaders did. I have repeatedly told you i am with you on that. There is no gain in you constantly repeating that sinhala leaders did that and did this because that is not new to me and i acknowledges that widely.

                      I just ask you a very simple question that you always try to deliberately ignore. That is WHO SUSTAINED THE WAR IN SL PROLONGING HUMAN SUFFERING?
                      Is answering that simple question that much difficult for you. You had all the time to go through and paste what happen during DS’s time but surprisingly you are unable to answer the question.

                      And i am not really a gate crasher, i asked you a simple question and what others say dont really have any impact on what i ask or vice versa.

                      yes Ceyril mathews is a racist imbeccile i dont think anyone here would dispute that. I am talking about the likes of Amirthalingam and the ones in TULF and even Sampanthan. Are you saying the TULF leaders are in tha caliber of Cyril mathews? And i really dont know whether making shoes out of sinhala skin is true or not. That is a widely believed as a saying by a tamil politician in a stage. Having seen the level of nationalism and the depth they went to justify the LTTE terrorism i dont completely reject it.

                      By the way still you didnt answer this very simple Qn. what makes you unable to answer this?

                      Do not prejudge MR T Sabaratnam; he was once press secretary for Lalith athuathmudali and a well respected man. He graphically chronicled everything that happened. He did not regard VP as his god!

                      Pre 1983 there were small incidents happened with impunity. What is alarming is that the state is inextricably linked to those racist organisations. So, it is perfectly reasonable to be concerned.

However, GOSL could have done many things to invalidate the LTTE platform. The reason LTTE killed Neelan Thiruchelvam because he was working with cbk developing a federal constitution. LTTE did not want that published as it would have pulled the Tamils away from their control.

                      Why didn’t cbk continue with that work?
                      Why the Tamil language policy was never implemented?

                      The Sinhala do not need the Tamil politicians in order to arrive at a consensus as to a solution for the Tamils; why didn’t they do it? If such positive moves had been made, it would have put LTTE in untenable position. So the answer to your question is that both successive governments and the LTTE prolonged the war.

                      @bi,

                      I am not pre judging Sabaratnam I am judging him after looking at his site. Any idiot can see how he idiolize Prabhakaran as a hero and you want me to believe every word he says giving me his credentials?
                      Not only Sabaratnam, I remember a certain tamil who held a high post in Central bank who got Deshamanya from SLG who later became an LTTE supporter. I cant remember his name. So what can we say about a reporter? After all it shows how the so called racist Sinhala leaders at that time kept Tamils with questionable links to militancy in high offices.
                      And where did I reject what sabaratnam said, I said I will have a look at it later on.
                      And what is the point of brining sabaratnam here? I have repeatedly told you I am with you on the reasons for the emergence of militancy. I just ask you a one simple question,
                      Who sustained the war prolonging human suffering? Is it that difficult for you to answer?
                      “Pre 1983 there were small incidents happened with impunity. What is alarming is that the state is inextricably linked to those racist organisations. So, it is perfectly reasonable to be concerned.”
                      I don’t know what you are saying here and how it has any relevance to what is being discussed.
                      And without using childish tactics to evade the question, answer as a grown up!

                      Yes and where have I doubted that? So just because LTTE is going in that direction what did you the tamils do? What did tamil politicians do? What are they doing now?

                      Yes, and haven’t the rest of tamils especially the tamil diaspora declared him a traitor? Why did you declare him a traitor if the tamils were not agreeing with LTTE and not supporting LTTE?

                      LTTE did not want that published as it would have pulled the Tamils away from their control. Why didn’t cbk continue with that work?

                      First that is well published. Secondly how can CBK continue with that when the other party who needs to agree with the pact has rejected the pact? What sort of a stupid question is that? It is like asking why the wedding didn’t take place when the bride has already rejected the proposal.
                      ————————————————————————————————————————–
                      Why the Tamil language policy was never implemented?
                      ———————————————————
                      What tamil language policy? If you are referring to the proposals in 13A the tamil lang policy implementation started from 1987 onwards. That is why Tamil is one of the official languages on par with Sinhala. Also many improvements are being done to make Tamil language a working official language.
                      ——————————————————————————————————————
                      The Sinhala do not need the Tamil politicians in order to arrive at a consensus as to a solution for the Tamils; why didn’t they do it?
                      —————————————————-
                      So you mean when the LTTE was killing the civilians, killing state leaders and were practically at war with the state the gov has to implement a power devolution with tamils? Are you really using your senses when writing?
                      ——————————————————————————————————
                      If such positive moves had been made, it would have put LTTE in untenable position. So the answer to your question is that both successive governments and the LTTE prolonged the war.
                      ————————————————-
                      :D really ? Then why did the moves like 1987 indian brokered peace talks fail even with the force of india to push LTTE towards peace and an agreement. Why did Premadasa’s peace talks fail even after premadasa had gone too far to help the LTTE? Why did CBK’s peace talks fail? Why did Ranil’s peace talks fail even after he had promised something equivalent to Eelam? That too with US, Japanese, Norwegian backing. Why did they fail?
                      Don’t you realize that your argument is extremely hollow? The reason all these things failed was LTTE was the first to violate ceasefire and they never wanted a settlement.

                      So this claim that successive governments are responsible for the war and prolonging the war is an extremely idiotic and a hypocritical claim. Gover never wanted to prolong a war. They needed to stop the war. The reason war prolonged was external support for the LTTE to sustain the war. Had these external forces tamil diaspora and barbaric humanitarian groups didn’t support the LTTE in prolonging the war the human suffering, this carnage and deaths would not have happened.
                      So in all these things what was the strength behind LTTE? What made the LTTE to sustain the war?

                      It is YOU people who collected money in kovils abroad, who funded LTTE, who gave political cover for LTTE and who gave some sort of legitimacy for LTTE that prolonged the war, human suffering and all deaths. And I know you will come up with another twist of words, but remember whoever is on your side whether it is US or UK, the only reason war in SL prolonged was YOU who supported and sustained the LTTE. Blood of all the people died in this war with no regards to ethnicity is in YOUR hands that funded the LTTE terrorism!

                      Such,

                      I am not going to respond to your insipid utterances! The Tamils had to choose between two evils; both sides enjoyed killing them!

                      The Sinhala do not need Tamils to arrive at a consensus as to a solution. If you do not comprehend this basic fact, you delude yourself! The perception of the Tamils is that, the Sinhala will not agree to anything; CBK once said this in a public speech. Many Tamil intellectuals echoed this to her in the UK. So, Sinhala governments can talk about peace talks and oppositions can pander to the chauvinist elements so it goes yet again! The pattern of deceiving the Tamils since independence has not changed. This is why, if the Sinhala were really serious about a solution, they should arrive at a consensus on this without playing underhand politics. If this had been done during the war and a public commitment had been made in this regard, there was no doubt that it would have put the ltte in very difficult position.

                      Sinhala governments did nothing tangible that would have convinced the Tamils that they were better evil! You can write volumes of materials but it will be in vain. The world knows that the Sinhala are not interested in recognising the Tamils’ right to self-govern; this is why, the tide has changed once the LTTE is out of the way.

                      CBK should completed Neelan’s project; she should have galvanised the Sinhala polity while conditioning the Sinhala public through education and debates in terms of the gravity of the need for a solution for the Tamil question. If this had been done; imagine what message would have sent to the Tamils!

                      The Tamil language policy is about implementing Tamil language available through out the nation. No attempt was made to achieve this. The Sinhala language is still being thrust on the Tamils. In 1948, the Sinhala replaced the Brits as the new masters of the Tamils; ever since, nothing but misery for the Tamils! This is why, the Tamils would have been better off under the Brits and this is an indelible blemish on the Sinhala physic whether you like it or not!

                      HI BI,

                      I have repeatedly told you my views on the formation of LTTE are not different from you. So what is this repeating the same stuff again and again after I have already mentioned I don’t doubt that? What purpose does it serve to repeat the same stuff that we both agree with?
                      I think you have either not read my response regarding Sabaratnam or fail to comprehend it or deliberately misinterpreting it. I am not commenting about the content of what he writes. That is simply because I haven’t read it. How can I reject or agree with a book that I haven’t read? What I said was regarding his pro LTTE stance after having a look at his web site? Are you that incompetent to fail to understand this simple logic?
                      Again read my comments and read yours and try to understand how your replies are not anyway relevant. I have repeatedly told you (2nd time in this response as well), I accept that the Sinhala leaders and their policies led to the emergence of Tamil militancy. Where have I said that Sinhala leaders and Sinhala people can be absolved from this responsibility? Where have I said that? So the accusation you point is rather hollow because I haven’t stated that. I have from the beginning maintained the stance that Sinhala leaders are largely responsible for the mayhem and the emergence of militancy. No where I dispute your point regarding that.
                      If I were in your shoes I would have stopped supporting LTTE the day they killed (burning alive) Tamil youth in the streets of Jaffna after IPKF left. I would have stopped supporting LTTE the day I saw how LTTE killed devotees (mostly old women) in Sri Maha Bodhi and the day they killed baby monks in Aranthalawa. Even if I didn’t change my stance then I would have stopped supporting LTTE when they blew off innocent people in buses and trains and of course after learning LTTE conscription of child soldiers at the age of 8 or 9. But you didn’t do that. You waited until the government forces crushed the terrorists. So you had many chances to change your terror supporting stance but you didn’t. That is what I am asking? Do you take this responsibility of sustaining this cruel barbaric terror force and sustaining war thereby prolonging human suffering? Use your own conscience and ask yourself this question.
                      This is what I am pointing at you are not ready to take responsibility of this unpardonable act of supporting terrorism even after they have done enormous harm to all the people without any regard for humanity. This is the stance of yours I have a problem with.
                      So don’t bring out Sinhala leaders did this and that, because I have already said I don’t dispute your that stance.

            The way to rectify the imbalance was to bring the rest of the county to the same level through development and education.

            —-

            OK fine. Tamils are above and beyond in their human faculties compared to Sinhalese. They have unconquerable genetic traits. Mr. Sivathasan has told us at least that much.

            Tell me would you agree to put all districts where Tamils are in majority and districts with the best schools in the South like Colombo, Kandy, Matara, Kurunegala into one zone for the purpose of university admissions today? In that zone there will only be merit based admission (no standardization) and we will allocate a quota of places to this zone based on students sitting the exam.

            There are students in Colombo who cannot enter medical college even after taking 3 A passes. I’m sure they will be more than happy to pick a few places from under-developed areas in the North/East. Shall we do that? That’s what you want right — competition?

            The government can continue to develop schools in N/E to the best it can the usual way and with a bit of luck those parts of the country will have better schools in another couple of hundred years time!

        The west didnt support SL like you say. The west started supporting that too limitedly after their own white a$$es were blown away by islamists. Until then it was just some black people in a small island getting killed.

        Actually the brits didnt really help except for banning LTTE. But their fund raising and LTTE activities continued with no problem.

          No they supported Sri Lanka way back in the early 80s. America turned a blind eye to Sinhala Nationalism and sent their military advisers to train and help GOSL, in return for Trincomalee harbour. India then created the LTTE to twart America’s plans.

    David Cameron is the sleaziest asshole ever to be British Prime Minister. He should first investigate British Tamils who aided LTTE’s war crimes against innocent civilians in Sri Lanka by extorting money, buying arms, human smuggling and engaging in a campaign of disinformation. British politicians allowed these crimes against humanity to continue even after banning the LTTE in order to get the Tamil ethnic vote. Cameron is talking like an arrogant fool as if he is acting on moral principles. Nobody is buying it. We all know if there are more Sinhalese than Tamils in Britain, Cameron the hypocrite would be taking the reverse position of supporting Sri Lanka at Geneva. And who is this Jeyadevan? He is a turd who was working very closely with the LTTE leadership in promoting terror against Sri Lanka until Castro kicked him out.

    How exceedingly pathetic to see Tamils commenting still haven’t gotten over the coolie-master mindset.
    Master can do no wrong ! Master has only our best intentions at heart ! We were better off serving the master ! Master will save and protect his loyal coolie servant !

    “How exceedingly pathetic to see Tamils commenting still haven’t gotten over the coolie-master mindset.”

    Of course Tamils haven’t.

    However, white masters long gone and the Sinhalese to have not recovered from coolie behavior, now they send their women folks to middle east.

    Two factors have since changed, race of the masters and the geographical location.

    Sinhalese men prefer to stay at home and enjoy life while their women folks toil and die in far away medieval kingdoms under most difficult working conditions.

    Sinhalese men are proud of being masters of the universe while their women folks suffer immensely under worse coolie conditions merely to feed their family.

    You men are cruel hence don’t need ba..s. replace them with coir.

    Burning Issue
    I have a little issue about your protracted view on Briton.
    As you are well aware Briton was not there to build bridges or make roads in Sri Lanka but to Rob!
    They have placed a system so the inhalation process can be prolonged until the wealth is completely extracted.
    If you go through the stats it would be evident that the majority Sinhalese had a little or no say on the central government issues and the there share was bare minimum. So the privileged Jaffna Tamils “the chosen once by the Briton” did not open their mouths to utter a single word about inequity or suffering of the majority un educated Sinhalese like they do now!
    I have no issue been sensitive to the countries problem but by patrician with front organizations who used to work for LTTE and Leverage LTTE for their position in the British Politics.
    LTTE Lobby’s had be working decades with Labour and Lib Dem for political favouritism Best example would be the relationship with the Chairman of the Home affaires select committee Hon. Keith Vas. Now Deputy Lib Dem leader Simon Hughes,,,list go on.
    This is not the British public leading the meddling but the Politicians who were high jacked by the Lobby’s!
    The reputation of the Sri Lankan Tamils are ever so low and mostly disassociated by the mass due to the frauds, Money laundering and organised crimes including the credit card fraud! That is why people do not use their credit or Debt cards if they see a Tamil in the cashier in a petrol station.
    Briton knowingly support the Iraq war with out evidence of weapons of mass destructions and the United Nations approval and killed almost 1/2 million people and people are dying to this day.
    In Sri Lanka the war was over in 2009 there wasn’t a single bomb exploded. Tamils are voicing there concerns using the democratic means. I am not suggesting that the things are perfect in Sri Lanka but compared to similar situations the country has achieved beyond comprehension and more to be achieved.
    If need to involve Briton can use the influential groups such as the friends of Sri Lanka in there parliament to provide support and aid.
    This resolution will not pass by any means and would only be suicide as the questions of ICC looking in to the war crimes committed during the Iraq war is coming in to the picture!

    MAVEERAN is actually a BBS MONK planted by the MaRa regime in CT columns to bring discredit to the Tamil community by portraying us as some kind of sexual perverts. Beware Tamil patriots. He is engaged in a sick campaign to denigrate our Maveerars who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Tamil Eelam.

        Exactly! This “Maveeran” is one sick guy, a sexual predator and a criminal, planted by Gota to pretend like a Tamil on the internet and write obscene stuff to make the Tamils look bad. As you can see he is doing a very good job. Many people are now convinced the rumours about the Maveerar being brain-washed, drugged-out and sexually-deviant are all true.
