British PM Cameron is adopting a “holier than thou” attitude in the belief that the rest of the world is unaware of war crimes committed by Britain. They joined hands with the USA to commit these crimes. Britain is unashamedly playing poodle to the USA as if Britain is its satellite. This is similar to PM Cameron taking orders from the LTTE diaspora.
It is reported that PM Cameron descended to the level of meeting members of the Global Tamil Forum, the spokespersons of the LTTE diaspora. They may be in suits and cassocks, but they are criminals who gave every support for the LTTE to commit mass murder. He had the temerity to meet these one time members of the LTTE in his official residence, 10 Downing Street.
These criminals are wanted in Sri Lanka for mass murders. Not only is Britain shielding these criminals who are fugitives from justice, but also shamelessly dancing to their tune.
PM Cameron has attempted to wreck the Commonwealth by promoting his personal agenda. At a time when Britain has problems with the European Community, he should be diplomatic with his partners in the Commonwealth and not antagonize them.
It is a matter of regret that of all the Heads of State who attended CHOGM it should be the Queen’s PM who should act in such a boorish manner, particularly when Prince Charles, the heir to the throne was present in Sri Lanka. Every discerning person knew that PM Cameron put on an act for securing LTTE diaspora votes, to further his political career. How pathetic for a so called toff!
PM Cameron cut a sorry figure when he walked in with not a smile on his face, to impress the LTTE diaspora, who were watching his every move on TV. At a news conference in Colombo, he answered questions put to him by his own selected reporters, including Channel 4. He called them by name, which exposed his game. They were obviously all pre arranged questions.
When our own TOP editor RAJPAL ABEYANAYAKE fired a question, PM Cameron slunk away, unable of course to reply searching questions. Rajpal in addition to being an editor is also an able lawyer, who would have made mincemeat out of PM Cameron if he did not slink away. As he was running away, Rajpal shouted out, “What kind of hypocrite are you Mr. Prime Minister; where is the Chilcot report?!” PM Cameron had to face these types of questions because of his extraordinary love for the criminal outfit, the LTTE diaspora. He brought the office of Britain’s Prime Minister to ridicule. This is what happens when people in high office have a secret agenda.
His obligations to the minuscule LTTE diaspora is so intense, that he is prepared to risk the hatred of 21 million Sri Lankans. Prince Charles would have been thoroughly ashamed of the conduct of his Prime Minister. In a couple of months, PM Cameron would draw enough flak from his countrymen when it dawns on them that he is siding a criminal outfit, not for the benefit of Britain, but in his personal interest.
PM Cameron should consult and emulate the British Member of the European Parliament Dr Charles Tannoch, a highly intelligent and incorruptible GENTLEMAN. The LTTE diaspora could not influence him. He castigated his fellow parliamentarians thus, “Sri Lanka has finally achieved peace by defeating a ruthless terrorist organization, the LTTE which had refused all peace bids made by the Government of Sri Lanka. The word Genocide is being mentioned even without knowledge of its meaning”. He asked, “how can anyone accuse Sri Lanka for genocide and crimes against humanity, when the same Army rescued more than 300,000 Tamil civilians from the LTTE, by putting their own lives in harm’s way, and helped to resettle them?”
Dr Tannoch is one of the few members who could not be bribed by the LTTE diaspora.
Another honourable member of the EU Parliament Geoffrey Van Orden made insinuations that some of the members would have been influenced, and hence, their stance. He remarked, “we regret that we are having this debate today. I suspect that it has been prompted by extreme elements in the Tamil diaspora, the same people who have helped to sustain the LTTE terrorist campaign over many years through political activities and funding, often from proceeds of crime. Instead of trying to bring together the peoples of Sri Lanka, there are those that continue a campaign of hatred and division”. He further said, “I call on the European Governments to be more active and vigilant in dealing with extremists in OUR midst”.
Invasion of Iraq
As regards blatant violations of Human Rights by the UK, members of its Parliament endorsed the invasion of Iraq merely to play poodle to the USA, knowing fully well that Iraq did not possess weapons of mass destruction. This massacre had similarities to the extermination of Jews by Hitler. What Britain committed against Iraq was GENOCIDE. These politicians took the British people for a right royal ride, spending millions of the British taxpayers’ money, and killing hundreds of British soldiers in an unwanted and unnecessary war. PM Cameron is just as culpable as Blair’s Labour Government, for the murders of innocent Iraqis and reducing Iraq to shambles.
Britain and the USA invaded a peaceful country, though governed by a despot. Together, they also ruined Libya, Egypt and a host of other Arab countries.
Every day is not Christmas PM Cameron, the wheel will turn pretty soon! What Sri Lanka did was to crush a set of thugs and criminals, who were up to every despicable deed, going about destroying our country and killing our people, Sinhala, Muslims and Tamils, without any compunction. Prabhakaran was an animal in human form. He killed thousands of Tamil people who disagreed with his mad policies and ideas. He had the charismatic Indian leader and one time PM Rajiv Gandhi, blown to smithereens, by a female suicide LTTE cadre.
We ask PM Cameron whether saving the lives and property of the Sri Lankans, is a war crime? You are threatening that you will take this matter up in Geneva in March 2014, in the full knowledge that you have a very biased TAMIL High Commissioner in the Human Rights Council, Navi Pillai, who is herself prepared to dance to the tune of the LTTE diaspora. If you are such a truthful and straight gentleman, you should turn your country and the USA in for scrutiny, for all the war crimes and genocide you both have indulged in, in the very recent past.
As for Britain’s Human Rights violations record, the UN Committee Against Torture, recommends more than 40 separate measures, which it says will need to be taken if the UK is to be given a clean bill of health. This Committee has focused on the failure to hold to account those responsible for human rights abuses in the so called War on Terror, and for the mistreatment of prisoners in Iraq(CDN).
Under the caption “Britain’s Dirty War in Iraq” by James Cusick, “Britain led by PM Cameron has blocked the release of a Report by Sir John Chilcot, where Intelligence on Iraq’s supposed weapons of mass destruction, was investigated. Even after a decade of the invasion of Iraq by the USA and UK, no weapons of mass destruction were found in that country. There was no self defense as was necessary under International Law. This Committee comprised Sir John Chilcot, Sir Roderick Lyne, Sir Lawrence Freedman and Baroness Prashar.
You have a lot to hide, haven’t you PM Cameron?
Why are you afraid to release this Report which cost the British taxpayer 7.5 million Pounds? In addition to your reluctance to publish the Chilcot Report, you are also under orders from Washington not to do so. You must act with dignity and self respect, not taking orders from others. The British Taxpayer is entitled to know how their money was spent.
With so much to hide, PM Cameron is pressing that Military Commanders of Sri Lanka be taken before a War Crimes Tribunal. He must also insist that his confidants V. Rudrakumaran of the USA, Surendran and Fr Emmanuel etc of your Global Tamil Forum, and a host of others who have been catalogued as those who supplied weapons and gave MATERIAL SUPPORT to the LTTE, to continue MASS MURDER during the 37 years the LTTE held sway, should also be indicted before an International War Crimes Tribunal. We know that he has a special bond with these criminals, but it is his duty to have them charged for war crimes, and crimes against humanity.
War is between two parties or more, and though Prabhakaran is dead others who supplied weapons to him are very much alive and living in your country. You know that supplying weapons to kill, is just as much a crime as killing, itself.
You are no chicken, Cameron. You know very well that this story of the Sri Lanka Forces killing 40,000 Tamils in the last days of the war is absolute balderdash. This is a thing your friends, the LTTE diaspora, fabricated. By constant usage, you think it can gather a veneer of truth. If 300,000 Tamils were saved by these very Forces from the wrath of Prabhakaran, at the risk of their own lives, are you that dense to think that these Forces killed 40,000 Tamils? Come on Cameron, use your brains! Why should the Sri Lanka Forces risk their lives to save 300,000 Tamil civilians, when they could have watched as Prabhakaran killed the lot, thus saving Government ammunition as well?
Cameron, to enjoy the perks of office, has befriended the LTTE diaspora, who forcibly collect money from the other members of the Tamil diaspora. They also indulge in various nefarious activities to amass huge sums of money. These funds run into millions of Dollars. Part of these, are spent giving filthy lucre to corrupt people, and the rest goes into the pockets of the bigwigs of the LTTE diaspora, with which they have a very comfortable and plush lifestyle. By your espousing their cause, they will continue to extract monies from the Tamils, or else the avenues of income will dry up, and they will have to come back to Sri Lanka.
War Crimes Tribunal
By Cameron’s conduct, he will surely open up a can of worms, when Britain will be marched to a War Crimes Tribunal, sooner or later. By tendering “Material Support” to this terrorist organization, he himself will be liable for prosecution.
British people are an admirable lot, but some of their politicians are bounders. Instead of handing these LTTE criminals over to be prosecuted for war crimes, and crimes against humanity, Cameron is treating them with kid gloves and giving them the protection they need, as he requires their support to stay in office.
On what evidence does Cameron want our Commanders taken before a War Crimes Tribunal? There has to be a Prima Faciecase, with cogent and compelling evidence.
(a) NOT what is falsely projected by the Global Tamil Forum and the LTTE diaspora,
(b) NOT what a few Tamils have been forced to tell him in Jaffna,
(c) NOT fictitious films created by Callum Macrae, on payment by the LTTE diaspora, films which were non-existent when Sri Lanka was taken before Geneva in 2009 and was exonerated for absence of credible evidence.
The only “crime” our Forces committed, was saving 300,000 Tamils from Prabhakaran, who was using them as a human shield to save himself.
If 40,000 Tamils were killed,
(a) what are their names, (b) where are the bodies, (c) where are their graves and (d) where are the incinerators?
Please ask yourself Cameron, can 40,000 bodies be made to vanish into thin air, without a trace, within a few weeks? Are you trying to appoint some corrupt hermaphrodites who will be instructed to tender a report against Sri Lanka, to suit you and the USA?
By your conduct, you are attempting to rub salt on the wounds of Sri Lanka in order to create a separate state here, to be used as a launching pad for the creation of a separate state of Tamil Nadu.
Wheels within wheels, indeed!
