Channel 4 footage appear to show dramatised material, with the view of creating an anti Sri Lankan sentiment with viewers. This massively biased video footage has only one objective and this is to harm the image of Sri Lanka, that liberated itself from terrorism, that was funded by sources from the West. The video footage is expertly and carefully crafted to mislead the viewers, completely ignoring the fact that LTTE was the deadliest (FBI), cunning, ruthless terrorist outfit in the world. It has to be mentioned that LTTE killed two leaders of democratic states. Further, LTTE killed the Tamil, Oxford educated Minister of Foreign affairs of Sri Lanka.
The footage however showed the bravery of the Rajapaksa brothers and that of the military in resisting imperialistic bullies from UK, who always played the divide and rule game. If video clips were shown of the Iraqi conflict, where over one million civilians have been killed, the effects would have been even more dramatic. Killing of children by American soldiers, who really show the mind set of evil imperialist West, would be even more dramatic. Even the bombing of Libya resulted in many civilian deaths and the deaths of relatives of Gaddafi. Unarmed Bin Laden appear to have been summarily executed.
The West has treated fellow humans in most savage and Barbaric manner (Abu Ghraib, My Lai massacre) etc and yet C4 want to ignore such barbaric acts and want to dramatise liberation of a country from terrorism in a manner harmful for the liberators, for financial gains. C4 has ignored 30 years of terrorism and ignored LTTE massacres such as Dollar and Kent farm, It appears that human rights are used by savage rulers of the West, whose military machine, regularly kill unarmed civilians and children. C4 and the politicians that were shown in the C4 video, had any care for human rights, then they should investigate the human rights abuse in Iraq, Afghanistan and so on.
Although people in the West are decent, some rulers and media appear to be terrorist supporting, barbaric savages, that is hounding GOSL, that liberated its people from the nightmare of terrorism. The C4 material appear to be produced by mislead journalists who have been allowed themselves to be mislead or are in the pay of LTTE supporters. The video is entirely one sided, and has not shown the evil deeds of racists, Tamil tiger terrorists, who were hell bent on emulating Chola invaders. Sri Lanka was fully justified to defend itself.
To compare the conduct of Sri Lanka and the West
The West attacked and killed over a million unarmed Iraqi civilians, subjected the civilians to the awe of American bombing, on the pretext of fabricated evidence of WMD, WMD was promoted by eminent journalists such as Judith Miller, who later admitted to false reporting. Any footage of American bombing , or the killing of civilians, certainly would have been more dramatic than the visual effects of the C4 film on Sri Lanka. Even the recent killing of children and civilians by an American soldiers in Afghanistan would have produced more dramatic effect. The C4 video is simply anti Sri Lankan propaganda, which could be used by enemies of Sri Lanka. It is a unbalanced program carefully designed to mislead the audience and create anti Sri Lnkan feeling, perhaps produced by Tamil Tiger supporters.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â The C4 program did not show the horrors created by the LTTE terrorists, such as the killing of poor farm workers at the Dollar and Kent farm. Although the atrocities of LTTE are available (ref. http://www.spur.asn.au/ltteatro.htm ), C4 ignored to show the horrors of terrorism. The terrorists were trained, funded and supported by Indians and the main funding for terrorism came from Western countries such as UK. If the West, stopped giving refugee status to bogus refugees and stopped their fund realising for terrorism, then, there would have been no reason to liberate the country from terrorism. If funding was stopped, then the terrorists would have had no money to purchase weapons or to pay for the vast military machine they operated. The West as the providers of funds for the terrorists should take responsibility for terrorism.
The West killed thousands of civilians in a most horrific manner, in the Dresden fire bombing, when not a single German Soldier was in UK or USA. Americans nuclear bombed Japan, when not a single Japanese soldier was in USA, whilst imprisoning Japanese civilians. In contrast foreign funded LTTE terrorists wete controlling large parts of Sri Lanka, and Sri Lanka was fully justified to take what ever means to eradicate the foreign funded terrorist menace, with the declared aim of creating a separate state.
GOSL need to have an information gathering department that collect and archive the atrocities of the West and should expose false reporting by persons such as Judith Miller. Propaganda warfare, as conducted by C4 is real and should be handled in a professional manner by GOSL. Jon Snow appear to follow the footsteps of Judith Miller in false and manipulative reporting. False and one sided reporting on Sri Lanka appear to have similarities with reporting that fabricated WMD. It appears that some lies and nonsense have been fed to C4 journalists, with the aim of misrepresenting the truth, by LTTE supporters. The timing of the release of the film as well as selective use of information all point to the possibility that C4 set out deliberately to discredit Sri Lanka.
