Head of the World Civil Service

Ban Ki Moon is the head of the world civil service structure as the Secretary General of the United Nations set up at the aftermath of the world war replacing the defunct and inactive League of Nations for the world peace and Good Governance of the Family of Nations. He has been a politician as the Foreign Minister in South Korea before the appointment as the Secretary General of the United Nations on 1st January 2007, as the 8th Secretary General, and re-elected on 21st June 2011 with the help of U S A and the allies which is an indication of his capabilities to be with the winning and powerful power block for survival. USA as the main funder of the UN, nominates the future UN Head working along with the Western allies. He must be able, shrewd, trust worthy, and obedient person to the Master” to be elected the most powerful international position for two terms for ten long years in very stormy and controversial situations including the Middle East crisis which destroyed Iraq and destabilized the entire Middle East. Now he is running   for the Presidency for the South Korea, created after the invasion of the USA in 1950, dividing North and South as enemies and fighting the war to date and the political campaign for Presidency has started with local and international support. He needs the fullest support from the USA to be elected as the next President of South Korea due to complicated influence and association of USA and South Korea. He has only three more months to be in office as the UN Chief and now getting ready for the Presidential Race in South Korea – a divided nation with UN and USA forces active and remaining on the ground as the satellite states of the USA like Taiwan.  United Nations Organisation set up under the United Nations Convention is a political organisation governed by international law which is a slow and inactive Organisation. It is more politicized than the most political members of the Global Community with undercutting corruption and inefficiency to the maximum. Moon smiles as the moon and appear to be pleasant and harmless, but controversial with charges of Nepotism about his son -in – laws appointment to a High Post and other involvements and controversies in in the UN system, charges with corruption  and an ambitious person with long term plans for his success.   Now that his assignment is ending soon he should satisfy the master for assistance for his next aim to be the President of South Korea – a closest ally of USA with permanent Army installed to diffuse the threat from North Korea with nuclear capabilities. Moon is now looking for a peaceful and powerful exit from the UN leaving the legacy and the homework to his successor nominated with the influence of the USA the main funder of the organization. Sri Lanka is the soft target and the gunny pig though senior in the UN system not experienced and equipped with experts on international affairs and shrewd and able strategists unlike India – the giant neighbour with regional mentality and western countries conversant and engaged in the UN system. Moon is careful in dealing with India, USA, Britain and powerful members of the world body despite accusations on war criminals and abuse of human rights. How the new UN Secretary General will act and react on Sri Lanka is not clear but most probably he will make use of the home work and the officials assisted Moon in his manoeuvring diplomacy.

Sri Lanka a Soft Target

Sri Lankan assignment for him has been a soft target of the country engaged and engulfed with war over three decades against LTTE – the most feared and ruthless terrorist outfit of the world. West considered winning over unwinnable LTTE is impossible and advised Sri Lanka to negotiate with the assistance of the United Nations Non-Governmental Organisations and mediators whilst LTTE was flexing muscles worldwide in all sectors locally and internationally. Obviously west considered Rjapaksa a nuisance and worked out for a regime change with India in line with regional mentality and west adopting Middle East Strategy”. Close rapport with China irked the neighbour India and the West.  Same time   President Rajapaksa was immensely popular in the country – a fearless personality which the West would wish to have a control over. Moon is prepared to wait any longer and interact with anybody to achieve his end and objects. He patiently waited for six long years until the fall of Rajapaksa with the assistance of the west and the immediate neighbour with the Local NGOs and the political parties united against him. It was to the dismay and disbelief that the world saw Rajapaksa won the war on terror engulfed the country for three decades by the most feared and ruthless terrorist group in the Globe according to the estimates of the USA and considered unwinnable by the world. Barely two weeks after the end of war with ferocious LTTE Moon was sent to Sri Lanka to find the alleged massacre of 330,000 trapped citizens using LTTE as a human shield. Entire world watched the humanitarian operation on the exit of the trapped citizens for freedom. Moon was the architect of the long-term operation of the planned action of the west on monitoring Rajapaksa and the forces won the war on terror the world considered impossible. Soft spoken experienced head of the international civil servant appointed the controversial Advisory Committee claiming initially for his guidance which he readily made available to the UN system to be used against Rajapaksa and the group. Unfortunately Rajapaksa was ill advised and steps have not been taken for reconciliation, reconstruction, and mending bridges at the end of the war as in the wounded South Africa for take Sri Lanka reaping the harvest of the regained freedom obtained with the blood and sweat of the security forces and the people of Sri Lanka which would have taken the history on a different route with the freedom and the relief of the peoples of Sri Lanka. Instead they spent colossal amounts for railway lines, expressways and improvement of the infrastructure.

Moon is a Diplomat with Great Ability

Moon is a diplomat with great ability who will make no mistakes on using words and planning out for the future. He watched long years Sri Lanka cornered by the west with motions, attempted resolutions and the difficult customer Rajapaksa’s exit with the pressure and assistance from the west and the giant neighbour for reasons confined to themselves. Moons arrival to Sri Lanka after six long years have made a big impact and difference to Sri Lanka with the new Government committed to reconciliation and mending bridges of among the different ethnic groups. Again Sri Lanka was unfortunate to have misled and misdirected by themselves and the advisers dragging Sri Lanka to unknown destiny in the international arena. His statement 1994 in Rwanda there was a massacre where one million was massacred. UN had not been able to take preventive measures for Rwanda and Srebrenica and commenting on Sri Lanka that we did again in Sri Lanka and never again!!!  is a bombshell and similar to parting devil kicking the rice pot” after enjoying the traditional Sri Lankan hospitality after visiting Temples, Kovils and carrying children talking to the villagers following Mahinda Rajapaksa who was famous for such moves to be with the common man.    Sri Lanka government has soft peddled and disingenuous in denying the interpretation as an innocent statement. Had he dared say anything to US, UK, or a powerful western country he would have been in great danger? His statements are carefully worded and aiming only at soft targets.

Every Politician is Selfish

Every politician is selfish. Moon got the best of Sri Lanka for his future to the satisfaction of the master who is now pleased with the ground situation with Rajapaksa is difficulty despite immense popularity as the most popular individual of the country today when the followers and the family is pressurised with accusations and litigation on local and  international crimes. Now moon is planning for a successful exit from UN and to be powerful in South Korea with the support his Master. We are entangled with the selfish nations and the world body.

Moons Exit and Impact on Sri Lanka

Moon is facing difficulties at the exit from UN with charges of nepotism corruption and inefficiency. UN and NGOs are generally accused of demanding the accountability of others when they themselves are accused of corruption bribery and nepotism. Philippine President Rodrigo’s statement that Moon is a fool may be the tip of the ice bag at the last stages in power. What is the impact of his exit concerns Sri Lanka as he will leave all his homework, experiences, and the research to the successor who too will be an appointee of his master and the main funder of the United Organisation, While we are struggle with the new appointee and the new set up, Moon will enjoy power as the President of South Korea with the help and assistance of the same master. UN is not as hard on us  as before due to unprecedented concessions offered by Sri Lanka at the highest long and short term cost, having agreed to a joint resolution and allowing UN free access to Sri Lankan unlike more experienced India always cautious on UN and NGOs with limited access to the country. Neither UN nor Moon has given Sri Lanka a guarantee returns for the concessions offered by GOSL which is a gamble towards an uncertain future in the unpredictable world body.

    The UNSG Ban Ki Moon’s Outrageous, Total and Utter Lies With no Proof Whatsoever Regarding the Sri Lankan Conflict during His Speech in Colombo, Sri Lanka, is Insulting to the People of Sri Lanka

    The UNSG Ban Ki Moon’s statement that ‘thousands of civilians died in the last stages of the conflict in Sri Lanka’ at a speech Ban Ki Moon gave in Colombo, Sri Lanka on the 2nd September, 2016 is a total and utter lie, is outrageously wrong and an extreme insult to all the victims of the brutal terrorist group the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). If Ban Ki Moon makes such outrageous statements, it is better he has any proof whatsoever to show for it. His utter lie is totally deplorable, is condemnable and an insult to the people of Sri Lanka and the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka.

    Sri Lanka has had 26 years of conflict from 1983-2009. In this period (inclusive of the first, the middle and the last stages of the war), it is the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) terrorist group who massacred over 47,000 mainly Sri Lankan Armed Forces members and also civilians.

    The LTTE massacred over 35,000 Sri Lankan Armed Forces members, Police Force members and Civil Defense Force members over 6000-7000 overwhelmingly Sinhala but also Muslim civilians, 1,253 Indian Peacekeeping Forces (IPKF) members, over 2,000 Tamil Armed Group members who supported the Government of Sri Lanka and who were against the LTTE, around 3,000 Tamil civilians and all this add upto 47,000. Around 35,000 LTTE terrorists are estimated to have perished too. In all around 84,000 in total have perished in total in the war.

    As you can see it is the brutal LTTE terrorists who massacred over 47,000 mainly Sri Lankan Armed Forces members, Police Force members, Civil Defense Force members in over 26 years of war. Over 23,000 Sri Lankan Armed Forces members are today both temporarily and permanently disabled due to the war. Over 13,000 Sri Lankan Armed Forces members are permanently disabled due to the war. Over 156,000 Sri Lankan Armed Forces members have been injured due to the war. Over 6,000-7,000 overwhelmingly Sinhala but also Muslim civilians have been massacred by the LTTE terrorists in the war of over 26 years. Ban Ki Moon is insulting all these civilians who perished at the hands of the LTTE terrorists. Ban Ki Moon is also insulting all the over 35,000 Sri Lankan Armed Forces members, Police Force members and Civil Defense Force members who perished at the hands of the LTTE terrorists.

    If Ban Ki Moon can prove the above statistics wrong, please do so. Otherwise please do not insult the Armed Forces of Sri Lanka and the thousands of Sri Lankan citizens who were massacred by the LTTE terrorists for over 26 years. Thankfully the Sri Lankan civil war is at an end.

    Regarding Ban Ki Moon’s deplorable statement further, the UN did absolutely nothing while the LTTE terrorist group recruited over 20,000 child soldiers, all Tamil youth, as attested by UNICEF itself which stated in 2007 that perhaps the LTTE has recruited over 20,000 young persons under the age of 18 years into its cadre between 1983-2007 inclusive.

    The LTTE terrorist group also ethnically cleansed the entire Sinhala and Muslim population of the Northern Province, of over 65,000 Sinhala people and over 75,000 Muslim people of the Northern Province in the 1980s and the 1990s. The LTTE also ethnically cleansed the entire Sinhala population of the Batticaloa District in the East of over 25,000 Sinhala people. The UN did absolutely nothing then too.

    Today, the Sinhala people and their descendants of over 135,000 are yet to be resettled in the North and in the Batticaloa District and Muslims of over 115,000 are yet to be resettled in the North. Uptil 2012, of the above number, around 32,000 Sinhala people and around 32,000 Muslims has been resettled in the North.

    The LTTE was notorious for its horrific terror tactics such as large scale bomb attacks and the use of suicide bombers in carrying out hundreds of attacks against mainly Sinhala civilians and the country’s leadership, horrific attacks against Sinhala civilians using IED devices, claymore mines and bombs, the massacre of Sinhala villagers in their villages in the North Central, Eastern, Northern and North Western Provinces, the coerced recruitment or abduction of Tamil youth and children for recruitment as child soldiers, forced money collection from Tamils with threats to life in case of non-compliance, attacks on Sri Lanka’s economic infrastructure such as the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL), Sri Lanka’s the then only international airport, oil storage facilities, hotels, planes, buses, trains etc. ethnic cleansing of Sinhalese and Muslims from the North and East of Sri Lanka, the assassination of Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, the systematic assassination of over 120 noteworthy Sri Lankan politicians, civil servants, senior military and police officers, prelates, activists, academics, journalists and other professionals who were assassinated by the LTTE who were but a few of the hundreds of assassinations carried out by the LTTE, including the former Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar.

    My plea to Ban Ki Moon is to leave Sri Lanka alone and for the UN to stop supporting once and for all, the brutal terrorists group the LTTE at least now. The UN has continuously supported the brutal terrorist group the LTTE while it massacred over 47,000 as shown above for over 26 years.
