Dear Editor,

More facets to American  Hypocrisy raised by Peter Dyer bear highlighting.

In the 70’s US ensured the relocation of  the entire population of the island of  Diego Garcia against their wishes to establish a  base and prevented them from even being employed on the base though they recruited thousands of expatriates from  elsewhere to work there, so depriving the original inhabitants their most basic human right , to live in their country.

Yet, for the past three years at the annual sessions of the UNHRC in Geneva, US has been Grandstanding on human rights,  initiating resolutions against Sri Lanka, alleging human rights violations by the Sri Lankan forces in their war of liberation from Tiger Terrorism based on allegation of the same Tiger Diaspora. The ulterior motive is regime change to install a weak administration that is easy to manipulate to further US interests in the Indian Ocean to counter increasing Chinese influence there.

Yet again, the films Twelve Years a Slave & The Butler   show vividly how every morsel and sinew of human rights of American slaves were brutally violated by US, during centuries of slavery to build today’s US, that so grandstands now.

    France is doing the same thing in an Island in the Indian Ocean. Those people are without a country because FRance wanted their military camp in that Island.

    What France did on the Bikini islands (my mistake: I referred to them as the “Bimini” islands in my past comments) is one of mankind’s most horrendous human rights violations. The natives of the Bikini islands were relocated but their heritage, history, culture, and home were irrevocably damaged. They almost starved due to the fact that crops would not grow. They were relocated to another island one sixth the size of their homelands. They were treated in a manner of an animal and not of a human being. Yet to this day France is free of any human rights violations.

    That is only one example of the human rights violations of France. She repeated it in Algeria, Morocco and Vietnam. These were but three nations under her colonial empire. the horrors France has commited in the rest of her empire mostly in Africa is yet another chapter that the UNHRC sees unnecessary to even make a comment.

    Thank you Dr Rajapaksa – sadly how very true!! – But remember all this $$hit that is thrown at us is due to our own ignorance and incompetency of our rulers and their acolytes. So we really do deserve this $$hit!!
    To give some examples at random;- no legal challenge on Gordon Weiss on his figure of 40,000 casualties which is now being nauseatingly repeated by every Dick, Tom and Harriet in the media and elsewhere. No legal action on Adele Balasingam for issuing cyanide capsules to child soldiers, No formal objection yet on the obvious Bias of Navi Pillai against Si Lanka; No attempt in the Sri Lankan Parliament seeking a majority vote (so far) to reinforce the SL position (in addition to the mere “rejection” by GLP) that the UNHRC decision to investigate Sri Lanka is not acceptable to the people of Sri Lanka etc etc…So it could be a good idea to look at ourselves in the mirror, occasionally! – S de Silva- London
