Channel Four Doctored Video Shows Tamil Terrorists Wearing the Uniforms of Captives Killing Captured SLA Soldiers!
Posted on June 19th, 2011

How many adults cry watching a sad or sentimental movie? After all, the movie is a commercial production of actors playing their part. It is not real. However, it can stir emotions in viewers. Gravity of emotions created by the Channel Four video is no yardstick to measure its authenticity. What Channel Four harps on is a video that has been doctored. Contrary to their claims that it was taken from a mobile phone, expert opinion has it that it was in fact recorded by a video camera. Did Sri Lanka defence forces use video cameras in the battle field? No. Who used them? Well, here is undeniable proof of a well established video recording operation in action by none other than the LTTE. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h2T1FiwRmQo

 Tamil Tigers regularly used camera crews to record their battles, execution of captives, terrorist attacks and violent propaganda events.

 The Channel Four video is about Tamil terrorists killing captured Sri Lanka army soldiers wearing the uniforms of captives. That is why the fairer victims (Sri Lankan soldiers) are naked. The darker shooters (Tamil Tigers) are wearing them! It is no secret Sinhalese are fairer than Tamils and conversely Tamils are darker than Sinhalese. Most Sri Lankan soldiers are Sinhalese and all LTTE cadres were Tamils. This fact goes perfectly well with the video. Most Tamil Tiger terrorists were children and young adults. In the video the shooters look younger than the victims. Army soldiers are a disciplined group of men with neat haircuts and proper attire. Victims in the video have neat haircuts. In wide contrast, the shooters have overgrown hair which is distinctive of LTTE cadres. Victims seem much older than the shooters with their fat bellies and heavy build.  It further proves the victims were in fact security forces members rather than LTTE cadres.

 LTTE terrorists killed scores of captured SLA soldiers and robbed their belongings from uniforms to boots. A careful look into the Channel Four video reveals the uniforms worn by the two shooters are too large for them! No disciplined army wears shaggy uniforms that loosely hang as shown in the clip. It is further proof of LTTE cadres wearing army uniforms that are too large for them. Following is a sensational case of a famous Tamil terrorist supporter wearing the Sri Lanka military uniform possibly robbed from a captured and executed army soldier.

 This is indisputable proof that LTTE was capable of robbing captured Sri Lanka soldiers’ uniforms and wearing them; and they actually did so. Misusing enemy uniforms is a war crime in itself. Under the Statute of the International Criminal Court, “making improper use “¦ of the flag or of the military insignia and uniform of the enemy” constitutes a war crime in international armed conflicts when it results in death or serious personal injury. [ICC Statute, Article 8(2)(b)(vii) (ibid., 633] [http://www.icrc.org/customary-ihl/eng/docs/v1_rul_rule62#Fn4]

 LTTE cadres misused enemy (Sri Lanka army) uniforms and hence committed another war crime in addition to shooting the captives from whom they robbed the uniforms. Other terror groups have since copied it from the LTTE. An instance of Taliban fighters wearing US uniforms attaching a US military base in Afghanistan is found in the following link.   http://www.dallasnews.com/news/nation-world/world/20100829-Taliban-some-in-U-S-5682.ece

 Now hideous Tamil terrorists unashamedly use the very same video of them committing war crimes to implicate their victims of war crimes. Once they exploited their victims and killed them; now they use it to discredit their victims. Typical of terrorist groups!

 However, a large number of LTTE cadres perished in the war. Probably all the LTTE shooters in the video clip are no more or untraceable. As a result a meaningful investigation into the alleged war crimes committed by them is not possible.

    Bravo!

    Thanks GW for solving this puzzle. Not a difficult one though. :) :)

    Tigers woke up to war crimes only after May 2009. We knew them and avoided them all along.

    Now I wish the victims were Tamil Tigers. How unfortunate the victims were not Tamil Tigers but soldiers doing their decent job.

  2. AnuD Says:

    The amazing thing is there are the western masters are happy to issue press releases as soon as propaganda videos come out.

    Those days, when tigers blew Sri Lanka every way possible, they said, LTTE is not defetable. So, discuss the political solution.

    It is simply the govt side has no escape, by hook or crook, satisfy the tamil extremists.

  3. thurai Says:

    Foundation of Mafia,Terrorism, and LTTE is untruth. They know how to Cheat and threat the world.
    I hope truth is truth even one person accept and 1000 persons refuse it.

    The London Times on the morally-bankrupt “channel-4”:

    “Choosing to Die [Terry Prachett’s BBC 2 documentary on euthanasia] was billed, hyperbolically, as the first time the moment of death has been shown on television. It isn’t. Not by many, many deaths. What they meant was the first death of a white western man in a sitting room; there is death all over television all the time. Sri Lanka’s Killing Fields, Channel 4’s documentary on that country’s civil war, was made up of little else but the moment of death. Just before we get into it, I am going to pause, yet again, to have an eye-rollingly weary word about Jon Snow’s comic ties and jocund socks. And to explain why I mind and why they matter. The ugly garish ties are worn to semaphore the fact that this is a chap who is only wearing a suit because the headmaster says he must. Inside, he is really a far more relaxed, counterculture kind of dude, not at all the establishment flunky the two-piece single-breasted implies. It is a pathetically and worryingly childish pose in a man approaching retirement who wants what comes out of his mouth to be taken seriously. Back to the programme.

    Channel 4 has been flogging this story for more than a year, ever since it was given an unattributed but disturbing clip of footage that appeared to show Tamil Tiger prisoners being executed. It has showed it so often, to righteously harangue the Sri Lankan ambassador and various spokesmen, that now nobody will talk to it. The channel has accumulated a large collection of samizdat amateur footage from mobile phones and video cameras – mostly unattributed and uncorroborated. It mixes this footage with comment from unnamed sources with distorted voices and shadowed faces. And human rights lawyers. It was brutal, it was shocking, but it wasn’t journalism.

    Not a second of this has been shot by Channel 4; none of the eyewitness accounts comes from journalists.

    Snow’s commentary was intemperate and partisan, and it was all held together by assumptions. Channel 4 News has drifted from providing news broadcasts into being an outlet for nodding spokespeople and assorted NGOs and environmental pressure groups, or anyone who can provide interesting or sensational film. It follows the old American news adage, “If it bleeds, it leads”.

    What was depressing about this particularly bloody special was not just that it had precious little context or considered thought, but that the people who will suffer most from it are not governments or soldiers, but the victims of this brutal war, who deserve a more measured professionalism and due diligence, and who deserve better than this compilation of gore, topped and tailed by a man in a comedy tie.

    Finally, the most demeaning and prurient part of it all was that the penises of the naked men being executed were smudged out, as if they were the shocking part. And the pubic hair of abused and murdered women was coyly pixelated so as not to be titillating. The horror of war tidied up like Japanese porn, to save us the embarrassment and distaste of having to look at the genitals of the dead.

    This was a piece of politically correct sanitising that was degrading and humiliating for the viewer and the viewed, but was symbolic of this programme’s contorted news agenda. It really was the most astonishing and misjudged editorial decision from a news broadcaster that has grown into the habit of poor judgment on almost everything. Channel 4 News once had clever and astute reporters; now it boasts a revolving handful of Autocue readers with hair issues. And its arts coverage, which was by far the best of any terrestrial news, is now ill-informed, naff and embarrassing. This documentary was a low point in a continuing slump.

    What both Choosing to Die and the Sri Lankan documentary suffered from in different ways was empathy – which is very popular in documentaries these days. What both should have had was a buttoned-up sober detachment.”

    Andy,

    I’m wasting my time talking to you. You are wasting your time extorting racist demands.

    We have peace today because they died in tens of thousands. When they were alive we had no peace. Good riddance.

    If you believe this to be a real life thing, you are a fool. LTTE needs people like you.

    LTTE started to think of war crimes AFTER May 2009. We thought of them and avoided them BEFORE May 2009.

  7. andylingam Says:

    Lorenzo
    they died in tens of thousands ?? are those civilians ? ( I am not talking about Tigers ) .
    I alway argued with LTTE supporters in london , We can solve our problm by dialog but they always say NO!
    Now I understood their point, Whenever talking about our ethenic problm for a peace full solution almost all Sinhala brothers & sisters say We do not have any problm .
    so that mean We lost half a milliaon people for last 33 years for no problm !!!

    I agreed I am fool if you are clever please make me to work against these LTTE terrarist !

    God bless you my mother lanka !

  8. deva Says:

    dear wickrama,
    just by looking at the people and their body actions and the appearance in the video, I knew, it was Tamil terrorists, who were executing most probably captured SF personal. there was another video in the net, where some dead ltte women terrorists and SF personal around. But background sinhala voices insert in to that video is very similar to the background voices in the famous execution video.
    all these are done by a one group.

  9. Lorenzo Says:

    Andy,

    OK my bad. I didn’t specify. I was talking about Tamil Tigers. Tens of thousands of them died. They have names against them, not just allegations. They used to publish all the names.

    REAL civilian casualties were very small and negligible.

    To fight against terrorists, don’t fall into their demands. Make only those demands that are beneficial to everyone regardless of race. We will all join in.

    e.g. Reduce unemployment or go home. Reduce corruption or get lost. Stop pandering into Indian pressure or lose the election. Stop environmental damage or pay for it. Protect the nation’s children or die.

    When LTTE killed and attacked Innocent civilians (Including Central bank) west didn’t say a word against LTTE.However they said South people in south desrve those attacks.When 9/11 happened in their door step, US and their so called friends started worrying and started war against Iraq for no reason what so ever.Even prior to that there were sanctions from US and West against Iraq, due to that thousands of innocent kids, civilians died (No medicine etc).Then the war started and killed over 1/2 million innocent civilians,(As per news) then Afganistan how many they killed there? Then even yesterday or day before in Libya.All they say is sorry.According to US and West, they are so called advocates of human rights.Then according to news papers they sent suspected fighters to some countries in Eastern countries to torture under the supervision of US and West (These were the news at that time) And those things still happening.Where were those so called Human right commissions, Channel 4, did they say a word.We can justify what happened in SL as LTTE was the world’s most ruthless terrorist organisation .SL finished them off and US and so called allies still bogged down in Afganistan,Iraq, Libya etc.Those who have a little bit of brain could understand whats going on in this world.Channel for should be sued and give that money to those people suffer in north and east of the island

    Andy Lingam:
    Which country in the wolrd has succeeded by giving ethnic group specific political solutions. JUst name one country ?
    Europe tried multiculturalism. NOw they want to go back, tell me why ?

    India, by default, has so many cultures and it is an anthropological museum and see how stable the country. Every State is trying to promote itself at the expense of the country.

    After everything, Why Tamilnadu promote all “Tamil” political parties and Sri Lankan Tamils is a vry hot issue. Tamils live on Tribalism. Do you expect that problems to be over after that ?

    Tamils situation in Sri Lanka was created by Politicians from North and East. Tamils from north and east wanted to get jobs as administrators in south. Tamil politicians wanted more power to Tamils in North and East.
    Now Diapora Tamils do the same. They want to live abroad for wealthy and to have a own land in North &East.
    is it possible? Never. So Tamils must understand their situation now. They are misguided peoples.
    particularly from North &East. Social and economic situation lead them to live toether with Sinhalese.

    If tamils want peacefull life with sinhalese in south, please change your mind and welcome the sinhalese to
    settle in Nort and east. If you show the frindship and peacefull life with singhalese in north and east
    soldiers will return themself. Then you can fight for more political rights better life in your loved North and East Region with sinhala brothers and sisters.

    Lorenzo / AnuD
    Please see above Mr Thurai comments , I fully ageered with him ! Srilankan Tamils are misguided peoples !

    If a honest Tamil will never seprate our lanka , no point on sperating , where you will sell your farms product, where you will get well respect job in private or public sector in South & West .

    example :July 1983 He came to Jalpanam ( Japanaya) as refugee but Nov 1983 He went back to Purakoddai (pita godda), Why…… this what he said still I remember not even Naay (Dog) won’t live (work) in North & East.

    A documentary showing American army command was complicit in the killing of 3,000 prisoners who were separated out from the total of 8,000 POWs and transported to a prison compound in the town of Shibarghan, was aired in Germany in 2002. It was covered-up nicely by the West:

    German TV aired documentary charging American war crimes in Afghanistan

    http://www.wsws.org/articles/2002/dec2002/docu-d21.shtml

    Wonder if Channel-4 and its ltte cronies saw this.
