OPEN LETTER

Maria Otero, Under Secretary of State for Civilian Security, Democracy, and Human Rights

U.S. Department of State, 2201 C Street NW, Washington, DC 20520, US

Dear Maria Otero:

I just read a news item in ColomboPage which said “Time is slipping away in Sri Lanka for lasting peace, US concerned.”

You Yankees amaze me.  Having killed over 1.2 million innocent Iraqis who wanted to wake up and smell the roses the following morning, but you Yankees snuffed their lives having invaded Iraq on a lie. Because you were concerned that Saddam Hussein was piling up weapons of mass destruction which have not been found as yet.   You had a reason why you invaded and got Saddam killed by his people.  Right, Maria?  Oil!

And now you seem to be concerned about Sri Lanka as you pretend to be caring Yankees?  It wasn’t so when the Tamil Tiger terrorists were killing innocent civilians in the thousands for 30 bloody years and recruiting over 5,300 Tamil children to be their child soldiers and suicide bombers.  Then of course, understandably, there were no oil and gas finds along the west coast’s Mannar basin, nor were the geo-political realities that prominant, with Sri Lanka’s strategic position in China’s “ƒ”¹…”string of pearls’ and the Colombo-Teheran ties.  Isn’t it Maria?  Why do you Yankees feel that you all can fool the Asians and that we are a bunch of stupids?

Maria, Chinese are not dumb either.   They did smell “ƒ”¹…”Uncle Sam the Rat’, and  a few days ago, the Chinese government pledged its continuous support to Sri Lanka in its efforts to safeguarding state independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity and realizing social and economic development. I take it that statement was for the ears of the US’s  Maria Otero, Robert O’ Blake  (Jr.) and Ambassador Patricia Butenis.   Now, China has made it clear that they too want to play in this geo-political sand box and get involved in the “Let’s Bully Sri Lanka” board game. So what is your next move, Maria, in this game of geo-politics dragging Sri Lanka along as a pawn in it?

Why the vulgar hurry Maria. Only a few months have passed since the LLRC Report came out and you have the imperious audacity to tell the Sri Lankans “Time is slipping away in Sri Lanka for lasting peace”.  You Yankees may have gone to the Moon, but you still haven’t figured out how to clean up the Taliban terrorists, and still want to meddle in Sri Lanka’s internal problems.   Sri Lanka is the only country that has cleaned up terrorism wanting peace, and that too was done single handed, so you have the “Yankee doodle Dandy” audacity and the gall to preach to the Sri Lankan government how to find peace in the island, where the Tamils have been wanting their separate mono-ethnic, racist Tamil state, Eelam for almost nine decades, going back to the 1920s.

Hello! Maria, are you awake?  Have you been reading?

The ColomboPage also reports that “The US backed draft resolution with the support of the United States and several European member states to pressure the government of Sri Lanka to promptly implement the LLRC recommendations and address the accountability”¦”

Come on Maria, take off that “Bully Halloween Cloak” off your broad Yankee shoulders.  Do you really think that President Rajapaksa and his gang are standing in the corners of their offices with fingers from their left hands stuck in their noses and the right hands holding cups of Ceylon’s best Orange Pekoe and taking a sip every five minutes and day dreaming?  You must be joking! 

Maria, I just read another gallant editorial in New Delhi’s The Pioneer head lining “”…” Sri Lanka owes an explanation to none. It seems that the editor wrote that with you in mind.  Here are some excerpts from the editorial.

“Almost three years after the Sri Lankan Government inflicted a crushing defeat on the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam “”…” Sri Lanka is the only country that has till to date that has been able to defeat and destroy a terrorist organization – a section of the international community’s ad nauseum criticism of the manner in which President Mahinda Rajapaksa’s administration has handled the crisis is becoming a major irritant bordering on bullying.  The latest instance of this is a proposal that is being fielded by the US, the European Union and other Western Nations at the UN Human Rights Council, calling for Sri Lanka to implement the recommendations of a UN probe into the Sri Lankan military’s role in alleged civilian killings”¦..It must be strongly resisted by all who do not wish for covert Western imperialism to overshadow the functioning of a global, democratic world order”¦.After three decades of conflict, Sri Lanka has emerged victorious but badly scarred.  It needs help, not criticism, to heal.”

Maria, let me nudge your memory of the 9/11 incident in New York, and  a reality check about Sri Lanka.  You Yankees experienced just one morning of terrorism that day while Sri Lanka had experienced many such mornings for years of Tamil terrorism.

  It was at 8:45 in the morning of September 11, 2001, when a black cloud obscured the top of the New York’s World Trade Center’s North Tower, moments after American Airline Flight 11, a Boeing 767 carrying 92 people crashed into the building.   It was a terrorist attack.  And then at 9:03 the same morning the terrorists struck again, when the United Airline Flight 175, another  hijacked Boeing 767 jetliner smashed through the South Tower  of the World Trade Centre sending flames and debris showering down on Church Street on the eastside of the skyscrapers below.  A terrorist attack and all of America were stunned and devastated.  Most of non-American Sri Lankans stood by you all and sang “God Bless America” because they knew what terrorist attacks were which devastated their Sri Lanka and killed their people.   They were genuinely grieving with you Yankees,  By the time of those attacks  Sri Lanka had already  endured 19 years of Tamil Tiger “ƒ”¹…”Made in India’ terrorism, and there wasn’t a single day when a claymore mine, a Kalashnikov bullet or a suicide bomb did not go off  killing hundreds of innocent people.  That terrorism continued for another eight years and Sri Lanka has come out of hell with the end of the war on 19 May 2009, and in the final count there had been 388 suicide bombings, over 100 thousand of  innocent civilians dead, several political assassinations among them were two heads of state, Rajiv Gandhi of India and President Premadasa of Sri Lanka,  the Foreign Minister Kadiragamar of Sri Lanka and three Mayors of Jaffna.   And Americans were lucky that your President Bush remained unscathed and was in tact in one piece after the end of the morning of 11 September, 2001.

So, Maria, US should back off and give Sri Lanka a break, a space to recover, reconcile and heal. That is humanity.  That is civility.  That is love and honesty.  You Yankees don’t have to bully the Sri Lankans by dragging them through hell again.

And you heard Sri Lanka’s Permanent Representative to the UN in Geneva, Tamara Kunanayakam, a Tamil, strongly objecting to your comments at the UNHRC deliberations on Friday, March 3, warning of the hypocrisy and double standards, which would undermine gravely the legitimacy of the Council. “Only-two-and-a-half-months since the publication of LLRC report and three years after ending a 30 years of terrorism and separatism, the US seems to be impatient,” she said.

Yes, Maria, she was right, why this vulgar hurry?  Just back off from Sri Lanka.  The Sri Lankans know what they are doing as much as they knew that the path to peace and reconciliation was to eliminate Tamil Tiger terrorism which was supported surreptitiously by India, the US, UK, Canada, France and Norway, and not kowtowing to the call for a “ƒ”¹…”ceasefire’ at the 11th hour and 55th minute of the war by the US, UK, Canada ,France, Germany and Norway.  That is what all this vindictiveness is about, isn’t it, Maria?

You people can’t take it when little David-Sri Lanka says “No” to Goliaths, like the US, UK, Canada, France, Germany and Norway and tell you Goliaths, “Just Bug Off and mind your own business.”  Right, Maria?

So, Maria just keep your ‘Yankee  Doodle Dandy’ bully hands off Sri Lanka.

Sincerely,

Asoka Weerasinghe (Mr.)

    Maldives, our smallest neighboor has comeout in support.

    Our big neighbour and biggest economic beneficiary of the island nation is dumbfounded.

    Navi Pillai’s is a Person of Indian Origin (PIO).

    Take off your coloured glasses and just look accross to see our enemy then aqnd now.

    US is just a pawn in the scheme of things.

    Let us unite and stand up to Indian imperialism and Indian colonial parasites.

    Yep Asoka Weerasinha yankees never cared for human rights. Just ask the Native Americans, no one is taking up what happened to the Native Americans. Oh yes they were dispossesed and slaughtered in their millions in their own homeland. Just pick on Sri Lanka instead half way around the world.
