US Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has received widespread condemnation from government spokesman and and other political parties for mentioning Sri Lanka as a country using rape of women as a military weapon with a host of other countries.

ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-This is a total fabrication tarnishing the image of a sovereign nation that should be condemned with contempt,ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ said Minister Keheliya Rambukwella explaining matters at a press briefing at the media center for national security. We totally reject those charges, the Minister said.

The minister who is the government spokesman for military affairs said the totally ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-baseless allegationƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ has been done against the disciplined security forces of Sri Lanka by an ulterior motive.

The Secretary of State, Clinton has been having a controversial relationship with Sri Lankan elements ever since she received a donation from individuals connected with the terrorist group, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) when she was contesting as a presidential candidate. When it was exposed she announced the donations have been returned to the donor. But details of how many donations were returned are not known.

The Sri Lankan Minister said it is not clear as to why the Secretary of State made such an allegation when the US President has stressed that he would not provide shelter for the remaining few LTTE terrorists living in foreign countries.

Meanwhile National Freedom Front leader Wimal Weerawansa taking part in a television interview by the state owned ITN TV channel questioned on whose insistence Clinton defamed the army on baseless fabricated charges.

He said ClintonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s statement showed that the nefarious forces who fed a terrorist movement in Sri Lanka for three decades have been provoked by their defeat. None of the Tamils has ever accused the security forces of such a crime. Wimal Weerawansa pointed out there is no other army that has been accused more than the US Army of war crimes in modern times. These fabricated stories would have been told to Clinton by Chandrika Kumaratunga and Ranil Wickremasinghe and some of the foreign funded NGOƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s, Weerawansa opined.

Meanwhile the Jathika Hela Urumaya, a pro-Buddhist political party held a protest demonstration across Central Colombo to Galle Road Kollupitiya , in front of the US Embassy condemning Clinton and US officials whom they alleged making pro-LTTE statements during the last few weeks. JHU parliamentarians said the US is interfering in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka and fabricating stories to distort the image of the island nation.

The political party questioned whether the United States is against wiping out the terrorist movement in Sri Lanka. They said their policy is dubious while they themselves have declared a war on terrorism.


“We are protesting against the action of the former US Ambassador Robert O Blake for bringing accusations of human rights violations against Sri Lanka and we are organizing worldwide protests. The USA was the hidden force in every war that took place in the world during the recent times. It is responsible for the crises in Afghanistan and in Iraq where thousands have been killed,” said JHU parliamentary leader Ven. Athuraliye Rathana Thera.

Western Province Council Minister Udaya Gammanpila criticized the actions of David Milliband and Hilary Clinton for supporting the LTTE underhand and further condemned US interference in the internal affairs of Sri Lanka, asking them to mind their own business.

Many JHU monks and supporters carrying placards and banners walked towards the US Embassy from Vihara Maha Devi Park braving the heavy rains to handover a petition to the Embassy.




    Top article. This woman is confused. I think she is having ‘flash backs’ of her husband’s past adulterous behaviour. How on earth would have sex with a woman in a presidential office other than her husband??

    Is there anyway we can sue her?

    This is a problem with these white angels. They want to do something for the sake of money they receive. But fail to verify statements before publishing.

  2. Ratanapala Says:

    Hillary Clinton is responsible for 9/11 and the rape of Middle East!

    If Hillary Clinton was a good wife to her husband, Jennifer Flowers, Paula Jones nor Monica Lewinsky nor many other victims of Bill Clinton would have ‘happened’. If Hillary Clinton feigns ignorance of all these affairs she is not suitable to hold her current office – the second most important in the American Presidency. Otherwise she should be rated a rank liar. It is due to her ambition for office that she pretended not to see all this happen and did her ostrich act ?

    If Monica Lewinsky did not happen there wouldn’t have been any ‘Cigar Rape nor a tell tale ‘blue dress’. If there was no ‘blue dress’ there wouldn’t have been an attempt to impeach Bill Clinton. If there was no attempt to impeach Bill Clinton by the American Congress, there wouldn’t have been a Boy Scout President and Al Gore would have got elected to the American Presidency. If Al Gore got elected there wouldn’t have been a 9/11. If there was no 9/11 there wouldn’t have been a trumped up case of ” of Mass Destruction” and no Iraq war nor a war in Afghanistan. There would be no Guantanamo internment camp or Abu Ghraib and prisoner abuse. There would be no rape of Iraq and Afghanistan which continues to this day.

    This Hillary Clinton is simply deluded and seething in discomfort having to play second fiddle to her nemesis – Barrack Obama. Wherever she is, her body language simply reveals this discomfort. She will end up discrediting the first Black President and she will be Barrack Obama’s Achilles Heel and undoing.

    Where is Monica Lewinsky – the ‘Cigar Raped’ victim of her husband? She is another statistic among the hundreds of raped and made destitute victims in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Hillary Clinton and her America must atone themselves of the genocide in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, of the genocide in Vietnam and now genocide in Iraq and Afghanistan before they can start preaching to Sri Lanka!

    There is not a single shred of evidence that any rape took place during the war against terrorism in Sri Lanka in the way she is has ascribed – that the Sri Lankan defense establishment, willfully and intentionally, on a premeditated design used and/or permited it forces to rape women on a pre arranged scale to achieve its objectives in war.

    Hillary Clinton must realize that Sri Lanka is a far more civilized society than her own as so eminently illustrated by the writer of this article.
