Keeping account of the dead bodies by the West
Posted on June 9th, 2009

The facts are here. There is credible evidence from the IDPs that LTTE had killed hundreds or thousands of innocent Tamils as they fled from the clutches of the outfit. In the final stages of the conflict, many LTTE carders were in civil clothes. So anyone with a weapon would be a target. Even the soldiers were able to video how the LTTE was shooting at the civilians.

 Yet, some fools try to blame and put these killings into the Sri Lankan government’s account! In addition, there were thousands of suicide bombers who blew up by themselves. Any attempt to analyze or investigate the cause of the dead is now pure stupidity.

 For some, it was a drama that was unfolding per hour. So, the spectators needed the conclusion and then wanted to be drama critiques. The arrogant western governments who were miss-fed by the pro-LTTE media and the racist Tamil Diaspora brought the shame unto themselves. The last attempt to save Prabhakran by the west failed miserably. Prabakaran ran and got stuck in the mud for two days( where were you going man?) and finally he got shot. He obviously did not take the cyanide tablet!

Anton Balasinham’s wife gave so many cyanide tablets to innocent Tamil girls. They all died from either the pills or by their own bombs. But, Anton Balasinham’s wife did not take any cyanide pill. It is only a fool who would blame the government for the wrong acts of the terrorists.

 The main point that is being dressed now against the government by the west is the so- called shelling into the safety zone declared by the government. First of all, there is no UN mandate to create a safety zones when conflict occurs. But the government did this concerning the safety of the innocent civilians. If there were so many people got killed by the shelling or other wise, how come the Prabhakran’s father and mother got into the IDP camps safely? Was it a coincidence? How come six foreign citizens got back into the IDP camps? How come an approximate total of 300,000 got back safely into the IDP camps? Who counted the dead bodies? Shouldn’t we be happy now that they can get back to their freedom very soon? There will be no more force to make them eat a cyanide pill!

 But the main fact remains the same. Sri Lanka is a sovereign nation. The government is responsible, by its constitution, to maintain the territorial integrity of Sri-Lanka. The country cannot be divided for any reason. The government is duty bound to protect its citizen from the terrorists. The reason for someone to become a terrorist, freedom fighter, a rebel or whatever is not important when it comes to protecting the territorial integrity of Sri Lanka under one flag and one nation!

 The whole conflict between the Sri Lankan government and the terrorists group is purely an internal matter of Sri Lanka. Hence, there is no UN mandate on how to fight the terrorists! Unlike all previous governments, now, we do not have a stupid government that is not concerned about the civilian’s safety. Popular will of the people of Sri Lanka is to have space and time to reconstruct the lost glory due to terrorism and western colonization and manipulations.

 It will investigate by itself any human rights violation or any illegal activities if occurred during the final stage of the fighting. Now that we have some talented leaders, including the president and his brothers, in the government, we will be able to provide with our own home-grown solutions to the issues and legitimate grievances that minorities have in the country. Tamil leaders must come up with a list of their legitimate grievances. But to “separate state” is neither a grievance nor a right. In fact it is stupid to ask or force every Tamil to live in East or North. Colombo Tamils will not live in East or North! All we need is space and time!

 When the JVP took up arms to fight for whatever it wanted, there was credible evidence that over 50,000 un-armed Sinhalese youths got killed. Where was the ex-UN boss at that time? Where was the human rights watch group? Why some top posts in the UN are given to persons who are obviously racists? Asian nations should debate the issue of national and racial discrimination by the west.

 The west is in fact playing a game while we are trying to get back on our feet. The bottom line is the world politics. The west is very good at manipulating and controlling the development of Asian countries through the human rights cards and so called war crimes. It is in fact paranoid about China and India becoming economic giants. It is allowing Tamil Diaspora to agitate and put more fire to the flame which is now receding.

 The west should promote peaceful existence among Asian nations just as they do with among themselves. They should join hands to remove world poverty rather than bullying the Asian nations. They should get the facts correct rather than going by the web site sources that have no credibility. They should learn the Sri Lankan culture and history before being nosey on our internal affairs. They should not rely on engineered pictures created by interest groups. They should not use religion, ethnicity, creed or whatever in arriving at conclusions. They should not use terrorists, example BinLaden, Prabahakaran, to their personal agenda. Everyone knows that USA had used BinLaden back in 1980’s to fight against the Soviet Union.

 There must be more human rights organizations with Asian intellectuals to check on the human rights violations of the western governments. No one has pressed for a war crime probe against USA on people of Iraq. No one has pressed for a war crime probe against the Israel on the people of Palestine. USA and Great Britain went to wars with Iraq without a UN mandate! That too should be condemned by all members of the UN. They should apologize to the world for the lying about the weapons of mass destruction!
