New book discloses U.S. machinations that globally- revived Tamil Tigers – An Asian Tribune Review
Posted on December 1st, 2016

Colombo, 22 November, (Asiantribune.com):

An investigative-research-analyses which discloses Washington’s playbook and machinations that revived Sri Lanka’s domestically-annihilated Tamil Tigers in the global arena as an influential diplomatic-political force is well documented in a book – Tamil Tigers’ Debt To America: US Foreign-policy Adventurism & Sri Lanka’s Dilemma – written by a professional who worked within the United States system for 25 years, released last week in the U.S. by the publishing house of Amazon.

The most revealing observation in this book is: One cannot recall in recent memory how a totally annihilated lethal terrorist movement along with its superior military power was resurrected and emerged as a global political movement with a determination to achieve the same objective – a separate state for the minority ethnic Tamils in the north-east region of Sri Lanka.

The author of the book Daya Gamage employed by the U.S. Department of State as a political specialist in its diplomatic mission in Colombo, Sri Lanka attributes this transformation of the militarist LTTE to Washington liberal policymakers explaining Washington’s disappointment in its failure to salvage Sri Lanka’s Tamil Tiger leadership – which it believed represented the sentiments of the minority Tamils – to use it as a pressure group to influence changes in Sri Lanka when the outfit was annihilated in 2009.”

The author authoritatively says in the book To avenge the foreign policy setback, Washington created a conducive atmosphere – through its foreign policy advocacy – that facilitated the emergence of a stronger, determined and more coordinated Tamil Diaspora – once effectively functioned to sustain the LTTE – as a global diplomatic movement.”

The book separates from other existing ones on the subject in providing an unparalleled angle penetrating into Washington’s covert and overt maneuvers and designs aiding and abetting a global supportive instrument of a terrorist organization which is motivated to destabilize Sri Lanka. The analyses and interpretations, based on the author’s deep knowledge and insights gained during his tenure at the U.S. Department of State, not found in other works. The link the author discovered between Washington’s settled mindset developed in the 1980s and 1990s on Sri Lanka’s national issues, and post-2009 renaissance of the global supportive instrument of a terrorist group is unique to the readers. The interpretations and analyses of discovered data of this cohabitation, and Washington’s adventurism are aptly reflected in the gathered evidence that has gone into the formation of the theme of the book.

The most striking in this book is the U.S. State Department’s diplomatic maneuver, as the corner stone of its foreign policy, to lift the Sri Lankan Tamil Diaspora to an influential (global) position through its Diaspora Initiative Movement as an alternative to the militarily annihilated Tamil Tigers to influence changes in Sri Lanka.

The book discloses the change of maneuver since the advent of the Sirisena-Wickremasinghe administration in early 2015.

The author’s insights gained during his engagement with the State Department facilitated to disclose how American foreign-policy objectives and the strategic diplomatic agenda of the professional operatives within the Tamil diaspora coincided well to bring Sri Lanka toward global scrutiny.

What the author has compiled and written in the book – using his deep understanding following his professional engagement at the American diplomatic mission in Colombo –is the progressive development of the American perspectives, mind-set and policies on Sri Lanka’s national issues, Washington’s outlook on Tiger terrorism associated with the Tamil diaspora, and the significance of the emergence of the Tigers’ once global supportive arm – the Tamil diaspora – as a diplomatic network.

The book discusses the significant element the American foreign policy played during the existence of and since the military defeat of the Tigers, and its impact on Sri Lanka as a sovereign nation. It has endeavored to combine all these to give analyses and interpretation using the author’s deep knowledge in a different perspective touching the issue of America’s foreign-policy adventurism.

This book is a political analysis that unearths the manner in which the US Department of State strategically teamed up with the professional operatives within the Tamil diaspora under cover of human rights, rule of law, and good governance in post war Sri Lanka.

The material that has gone into the book which identifies a link that has not been adequately dealt with bringing into the open a strange collaboration between Washington policymakers and advocates of a separate state in Sri Lanka within the Tamil Diaspora undoubtedly will bring close scrutiny from a large group of people: especially a fair percentage of the 800,000-strong Sri Lankan Tamils domiciled in North America, Europe and Scandinavia. Obviously, foreign policy handlers, analysts, academics interested in foreign policy nuances and students of international affairs will give extra attention to what has gone into the book written by someone who was within the U.S. system.

During his professional engagement with the U.S. Department of State (1970-1994) in the areas of public affairs and public diplomacy, author of this book Daya Gamage was privy to Washington’s play book of foreign policy dealings with Sri Lankan issues. He gained extensive knowledge how U.S. Foreign Service Officers, and their counterparts in Washington, made crucial decisions, influencing factors on decisions, their mindset formation, and had access to their sensitive thinking. This wide understanding became rich fodder to the extraordinary analyses and interpretation of this book disclosing a link of that mindset formation to Washington’s trajectory hauling Sri Lanka to Geneva.

The author’s research, analyses, investigations and privileged conversations with American officials who enjoyed high security clearances, and interactions with US Congressional delegations – CODELs, vastly enriched his understanding the manner in which Washington managed and conducted its overseas foreign policy agenda in South Asia.

The wide range of contacts the author maintained with Sri Lanka’s military at all levels, intelligence agencies, members of the ruling and opposition elite and civil society members during and since his tenure at the U.S. diplomatic post in Sri Lanka enriched his knowledge, and such insights were used to produce valuable interpretations in this book.

The author was in a unique position to unlock his understanding of American foreign policy trajectory toward Sri Lanka, hitherto unknown to outsiders, to take the conversation toward a different direction and contribute to the already existing rich literature on these issues.

Daya Gamage earned a Meritorious Honor Award for Superior Performance and Professionalism in 1988 from the U.S. ,State Department. He is currently political-foreign affairs correspondent to this online daily newspaper Asian Tribune.

    Well said Sir!

    USA and Tamil Tigers are together against SL. Some Americans pretend to love SL but their real plan is to create DIVISION among patriots to help Tamil Tigers get a BASE for USA in SL.

    USA has given these people a green card to get this done. They regularly visit SL to do the ground work.

    Not only LTTE, America is behind all the terrorist organisations in the world. Also has anyone noticed that all these terrorist organisations have the same format. They have a spokesperson, website, emblem, flag, promotional and information videos. Americans get hold of a few idiots and make money using them. Destroying civilisations and killing people from both sides thereby selling arms to all sides is the name of the game.
    In the American efforts to recapture Iraq’s Mosul from ISIS involve six parties. Americans, Iraqi, Iranian, Kurdish, Turkish and ISIS armies. On the ground I don’t think know one knows whom to hit.

    Senevi,
    In Sir Lanka, Mahinda appointed a more powerful man than IRC Prabhakaran, a retired supreme court judge to take over Prabha’s mission in a beautifully wrapped package. MR is the equivalent of USA in Sri Lanka.

    Our heroes got rid of Prabha – MR appinted a new more powerful one

    he is still saying this new Prabha is not a racist, that is his package ! Christmas gift SriLankans in 2013. No wonder smart Sinhalese kicked him out.

  6. Lorenzo Says:

    Kumari and Gonsal,

    “Not only LTTE, America is behind all the terrorist organisations in the world. Also has anyone noticed that all these terrorist organisations have the same format.”

    VERY GOOD POINT Kumari.

    Come to think of it you are RIGHT.

    HOW COME all these terrorist groups are VERY SIMILAR? Because their FINANCIERS IN THE WEST and in ENDIA are the same!

    But this is only PART of the problem. There are 2 scenarios.

    1. These terrorists WIN – then it will be like 1990s AFGHANISTAN or LIBYA = HELL

    2. These terrorists LOSE – then USA, etc. will get a POLITICAL SOLUTION to bring them into power THROUGH THE BACK DOOR!!

    e.g. They are now trying it in Syria, SL, Egypt

    The BEST example is from SL and Gonsal said it – “In Sri Lanka, Mahinda appointed a more powerful man than IRC Prabhakaran, a retired supreme court judge to take over Prabha’s mission in a beautifully wrapped package.”

    So USA not only helps terrorists during war but also helps them come to power through the backdoor IF they lose war!!

    Appointing Viggie to CM post by MR TOTALLY reversed the war VICTORY and turned into a TOTAL DEFEAT. So MR LOST the war as well as WON the war.

    Other SL leaders could NOT win the war but they did NOT LOSE the war.

    Hello Kumari, you raise a very good point.
    ‘Not only LTTE, America is behind all the terrorist organisations in the world. Also has anyone noticed that all these terrorist organisations have the same format. They have a spokesperson, website, emblem, flag, promotional and information videos. Americans get hold of a few idiots and make money using them. Destroying civilisations and killing people from both sides thereby selling arms to all sides is the name of the game.’
    Yes I fully agree. America is the leader because it has the most resources but it is well supported by all the western countries of NATO, in particular Britain and Isreal.
    You may ask why they do it. Because the goal for them is to build a one world govt. It can’t be done if all countries were stable and at peace. So they create as much chaos as possible. To bring about their order. Which is a one world govt system.
    I think the election of Donald Trump was the American peoples rejection of successive US Govt plans to build a one world govt. Lets hope the movement against a one world govt system grows in the west. As these developments will greatly help Sri Lanka.
    Thanks Kumari that is a very good analysis.

    Is it poossible the drug money earned in Sri lanka are used to run various spy and destabilization activities. Importing things related to these are carried out by powerful people, so no one touches it.

    I would urge all patriotic Sri Lankan to be beware of treacherous elements namely Kumar David, Pakiasothy Sarvanamuththu, Weliamuna, Gamini Uyangoda, Ravaya Editor, Krishmal (forgot the surname), Jehan Perera, the ICES, the CPA etc. all of the above are CIA agents and their plan is to talk and write about all other subjects on the planet earth except one which is the proposed federal constitution. This is how the above well known Sri Lanka haters and CIA agents plan to hoodwink the Sinhala people, distract their attention by they and their subordinates talking and writing about all other topics on the planet earth except one which is the proposed federal constitution. In this way, they plan to hoodwink the Sinhala people and get this treacherous federal constitution passed in parliament. Once passed, it cannot ever be reversed and this country will be partitioned as the US,UK,EU, Canada,Norway,Sweden, the TNA and all other separatists want. Their plan is ‘Sinhalayage asata weli gasaa rata hatharata bedana kuuta kumanthranaya’. They plan to make this plan a success.

    The reality is that the US State Department has spent US$585 million to bring about regime change in Sri Lanka, Burma, Nigeria and quite a number of other countries as even stated by them. At least US$58 million of this would have been provided to the above mentioned CIA agents i.e. Kumar David, Pakiasothy Sarvanamuththu etc. to launch their koota plan of distracting Sinhala people’s attention talking about all other topics except the most important i.e. the proposed federal constitution.

    In this they are ably supported by the UNP/Sirisena SLFP/Ranil/CBK/Mangala/Pacha Ranawaka/Dath Dosthara Rajitha Senaratne/Wijedasa Rajapakshe/JVP/FLSP/TNA/ACTC/ITAK/TULF/SLMC/ACMC etc. who are also being paid by the US,UK,EU, Canada,Norway,Sweden, the TNA and all other separatists in order to pass this federal constitution.

    Already parliamentary MPs have been bribed using 2 lakhs cash, pajeros, a seven lakhs cash loan etc. In fact their foreign advisors already told Ranil and the UNP at a conference ‘whatever you do, do not loose the two thirds majority in parliament!!!’. This is to pass this treacherous federal constitution. This is their cunning plan.

    Not only that on the 27th of November Shivajilingam said on TV itself, we are so very near obtaining our Eelam!!! That says it all does it not?

    In fact the US,EU,UK.Canada, Sweden, Norway, the TNA, all other separatists have spent so much money for three decades to partition Sri Lanka, in fact billions of US dollars by now indirectly supporting the terrorists the LTTE. They want their investment back now with interest. So they are definitely going to pass this proposed federal constitution by bribing parliamentary MPs as shown above.

    Please patriotic Sri Lankans do not let this happen. Already we have provincial councils which is a reasonable solution as far as the requirements for decentralisation of power is concerned. There is no need whatsoever to go further than this if Sri Lanka is to remain a unitary state. Already Sri Lanka is quasi federal. If this treacherous federal constitution is passed tiny little Sri Lanka will be in at least four pieces or nine pieces or more and be partitioned forever into pieces. Not even India, Pakistan or South Africa, huge massive countries, have got rid of their concurrent lists. However tiny little Sri Lanka is getting rid of its concurrent list. This is craziness taken to the extreme.

    Looks like I am the only idiot here.

    Forget the USA and the West.

    Who was behind defeating John in 1956?

    Then came his wife and daughter followed by JR the quarter Indian.

    MR was installed with abstained Indian colonial parasite block vote.

    Who recruited Sarath?

    Who installed Sirisena with Indian Colonial Parasite block vote?

    Please open your minds and take the focus off the West.
