Dr.Jayantha Dhanapala, legendary UN diplomat of PTOM repute is making a serious comeback with the auspices of Island war analyst Shamindra Ferdinando. Under the caption of this article, the writer is moulding a new image for Dhanapala with a facelift. He says that the elaborate contribution Dr.Dhanapala made to LLRC report has gone unnoticed and thatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s a serious drawback, if rightly grasped, Sri Lanka stands a classic opportunity to take the case of the war against terrorism and the intricacies faced by state actor in the face of external players who are not bound by international or domestic edicts.

As for the argument that Sri Lanka has miserably failed in taking the fight to those international busybodies who are after the pound of flesh of our war heroes, on the issue in contention, its altogether a different kettle of fish when you involve shady characters who were all out to put the terror outfit LTTE on an even keel with democratically elected government, thatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Sri Lankan state, sharing the multi-billion dollar aid package, a manna from the heaven for that megalomaniac Prbhakaran.

IsnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t this a fabulous coincidence thatƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the author has selected no better time than, when that Japanese Kamikazie, now on a state visit here, who shuttled between west and Sri Lanka then, with his carrot of 4 billion dollar aid package to underwrite PTOM at any cost

Dr.Dhanapala and Harim Peiris were the lapies, who went on preaching the beauty of PTOM to all and sundry, on behalf of that lady CBK, now in her sagging years that would have put the last nail on the coffin of Sri Lanka as a unitary state. Mr.Ferdinando with all his good intentions has got the wrong end of the stick. This so called issue as to how the international players paid scant regard to the SL armyƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s precarious position when fighting the deadliest terror outfit in the world while paying a blind eye to the flagrant violation of all statutes of war book by LTTE has to be dealt with even belatedly.

That would be a lethal deterrent against India/US/EU troika who are flexing their muscle at Geneva now that the deadline is looming large. PTOM masters entered the fray on a widely and vividly discussed issue at many a fora by quite a few prominent Sri Lanka lovers leave alone the LLRC. In this backdrop we smell a rat when these PTOMies are promoted by Mr.Shamindra Ferdinando, inadvertently.

  1. Dham Says:

    LLRC members are not clean. This stupid report is biased and suggesting nonsence than publishing true status.

  2. Kit Athul Says:

    Dham, this Dhanapala is crook, he wanted to stop the military advance. So who ever said what is not important he and Harim Peiris is also a crook, but they have no power now, unless this cow Navi Pallai gives them some UN position.

  3. Dham Says:


    Cow is coming to Lanka. Peiris will be interseted in milking.
    LLRC is the most stupid mistake Maharaja made. How dare he appoint these crooks ? Why ? There are som many others, even all Tamil commitee can be made. Even Lenin Benedict could have done better for our country.

  4. Kit Athul Says:

    Dham, You are right. Peiris will milk her. I do not know why MR is allowing her to come to SL. LLRC at first Maharaja (He is no Maharaja he is MR) thought that they can be used to satisfy Hilary Clinton, that backfired.

  5. Marco Says:

    Not sure if you are having a “go” at Jayantha Dhanapala or Shamindra Fernando.
    Two sides of the same coin.

    ps- Thoroughly enjoy your robust arguments on Groundviews. Do keep them coming
