The Geneva resolution doesn’t matter
Posted on March 25th, 2012
The clamour about the UNHCR resolution on Sri Lanka and the gloating of US and British paid local agents should not be allowed to drown an accurate national understanding of the reality that this resolution means nothing to Sri Lanka: advice on human rights protection from those with as much credibility on the subject as Genghis Khan and Hitler combined, needs to go straight to the bin! The resolution is merely a part of the trickery used in the attempted neocon takeover of the world using the USÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s military might.
An insight in to the belief system that governs the behaviour of the American neocon establishment who have captured power in America, in the most unspoken of coup d’ÃƒÆ’Ã†â€™Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â©tat in the history of the world, is found in the book Genocide: A Comprehensive Introduction (2006) by the Canadian author Adam Jones: he quotes a Jerusalem-based Holocaust Studies Professor Yehuda Bauer who says, “As a Jew, I must live with the fact that the civilisation I inherited … encompasses the call for genocide in its canon.ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â
Now, one cannot be accused of anti-Semitism for observing that the ruling neocon cabal is made up exclusively of this particular tribe, and Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Robert O. Blake, members of the Congress and anyone who has scored a mid or senior level position in the US State Department share the same tribal value system: their actions in wars in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Libya bear witness to this fact.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â Prior to the current wars, throughout the 1980s they dispatched millions of dollars in material aid to the terrorist counter-revolutionaries in Nicaragua, badged “contras”, trained by the CIA, to kill the patriotic supporters of the revolutionary Sandinista government; neocons also unleashed carnage in El Salvador where more than 50,000 dissidents to the US backed totalitarian regime were butchered by the army and death squads, and in Guatemala a holocaust was inflicted upon the native Indian population.
ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â As late as the last fortnight, while US Representative Eileen Donahoe was offering advice to Sri Lanka, and at the same time, would have been busy offering bribes, and coercing and bullying the poor African countries, a group of US soldiers were on a campaign of revenge in Panjwai in Afghanistan, killing women and children.
Carrying such a disgraceful record of the human rights violations of peoples the world over, the US dares to demand ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œaccountabilityÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ from governments like that of Sri Lanka who have eliminated a barbarous, ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â murderous domestic terrorist group, simply as revenge against the failure of their geopolitical aim to create another proxy state in the north of the country. And, they expect us to take their ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œunsolicitedÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ advice on human rights seriously!
The bottom line here is that America, while might be having justifiable claims to many things, mainly in the area of weapons of mass destruction production, simply have no claim to moral authority on the world; at least not over those who hail from advanced, nonviolence-based civilisations that are far superior to the one they are trying to enforce on the world through military strength and deception.
The US behaviour during the same UNHRC sessions last week, while they were pontificating to Sri Lanka and examples of their activities in the broader field of international diplomacy during the same period shows good reasons as to why Sri Lanka should never accept their counsel on matters of human dignity and human rights.
Following the UNHCR adoption of the resolution Hilary Clinton said Washington is committed to working with the Sri Lankan Government to ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“helpÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â, and that she looks forward to discussing future actions with Minister G.L. Peiris soon; she also promised to continue the productive working relationship they have with the Sri Lankan Government based on ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“shared values, respect and constructive dialogueÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â seeking to strengthen their partnership with ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“all the peopleÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â of Sri Lanka: No thanks.
On other fronts, a spokesman for the US embassy in Colombo announced that the next round of the US-Sri Lanka Trade and Investment Framework Agreement (TIFA) talks will open in Colombo this week, and a State Department official was arriving for an ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“inquiryÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â on a petition filed by US labour unions challenging the Sri Lankan governmentÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“failureÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â to allow unions within the export processing zones, among other issues: they really think that they are heading up a world government to which everyone else is answerable; well, Madam, we are not!
Then the US was the only country among 47 UNHRC members who objected to a resolution on the rights of the Palestinians for self-determination. Strangely, when it comes to the Palestinians they are able to make an exception to their ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œuniversal valueÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ of human rights!
Also, while the UNHRC vote was still being taken in Geneva, in Washington, Hillary Clinton was canvassing a US National Intelligence Council report that predicts, between now and 2040, terrorists could attack dams and other water supply infrastructure in countries in North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia!
She made this stateswomanÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ like gesture flanked by a new collective named the US Water Partnership (USWP) that includes Rockefeller Foundation, the Coca-Cola Company, Procter & Gamble and sundry others who look like whoÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s who of the cabal that is undermining the countries of the world: apparently they are seeking to mobilise US based knowledge, expertise and resources to improve water security around the world. No thanks!
Now Hillary Clinton is crying wolf! But the world doesnÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢t need Hillary Clinton to remind that the most pressing problem afflicting more than five sixths of the global population is lack of access to clean water; the question the world has for her is that why, on 28 July 2011, the US, the EU and Canada who are championing global human rights abstained from voting for a UN resolution presented by Bolivia, co-sponsored by 31 other countries, declaring that safe and clean drinking water and sanitation is a human right that is essential for the full enjoyment of life and all human rights?
In the absence of a convincing answer, this ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œinitiativeÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ also will be treated as just another contraption from the ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œbag of tricksÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ she is attempt to perpetrate on the world
Not forgetting she has to look after other parts of the world under her rule too, Clinton also sent, assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs, Kurt Campbell, to frighten AustraliaÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢s newly ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œparachutedÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ Foreign Minister Bob Carr by delivering a message in person that the US believes that a North Korean long-range missile to be tested next month will land in an area between Australia, Indonesia and the Philippines: now all Australians will clamour for a US military base in the north of the country for added security!
The UNHCR resolution and other traps being laid by the ruling neocon cabal are simply the evils of colonialism which not only persist but have worsened following the so-called ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œindependenceÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢, particularly in the area of its most damaging aspect ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…â€œ the taking possession and control of its victimsÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ minds.
Conspiracies like the UNHCR resolution are designed to entrench their neo-colonialist control of countries like Sri Lanka through mental subjugation by dictating fake ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œvaluesÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ such as human rights as part of their effort to ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œcolonise the mindÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ and to create the ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œauthorityÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ capable of subordinating our mind. This process also involves ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¦Ã¢â‚¬Å“disconnectingÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â us from our own heritage and culture, which by the way is far superior to anything they are able to offer us, because people who are cut off from their heritage and culture are more easily manipulated and controlled.
This process of ÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬Ãƒâ€¹Ã…â€œseasoningÃƒÆ’Ã‚Â¢ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ã‚Â¬ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ (in American slaveholders jargon) essentially involves coercing the colonised person to admit the inferiority of his or her own culture: reading the garbage written by people like Gamini Weerakoon of the Sunday leader will help understand this phenomenon at first hand.
National liberation and the renaissance of the state depends on clearly understanding and countering neo-colonial attempts of domination through this evil strategy: it cannot be allowed to succeed in the Sri Lankan context ÃƒÆ’Ã¢â‚¬Å¡Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â because neo-colonialism simply has no moral match or mission to the traditional nonviolence-based value system Sri Lanka relies on.
There is no need for Sri Lanka to enter in to any type of dialogue with the US on this domestic matter and it should be left to us and us alone.
