Let Sri Lanka not be stupid enough to fall for OHCHR’s Terminology traps

One of the most remarkable achievements of the UN system is the amount of time and money they spend in compiling reports / statistics /charts / creating terminologies and preparing plans and processes of coordinating and monitoring them. It is baffling how far entities within the UN system know who is doing what and what the ultimate goal or objective is and more importantly for whose benefit these objectives are being drawn. Navi Pillay before winding up her tenure played a role alongside the UNSG in creating many precedents directed only upon Third World targeted nations. Sri Lanka being one. Sri Lanka became a victim of a well-coordinated pressure campaign combining Western Governments-UN system-INGO nexus-media and local lackeys.

The Public of Sri Lanka has however refused to fall for the accusations/allegations without evidence been thrown at Sri Lanka and so the best way out has been for the UN system to come up with cunning terminologies that would enable them to infiltrate into internal systems and take control over governance eventually to become the dictators of decision-making in Sri Lanka. Without a doubt the UN/OHCHR are trying every means possible to enter Sri Lanka.

Navi Pillays 2014 offer was innocent enough advice on the establishment of a follow-up truth-seeking mechanism that would examine the different accounts of past events and the history of the conflict, including its root causes” in order to “provide an inclusive narrative of why it happened, contribute to the creation of a historical record and bring clarity to the question of casualty figures“.

Quite a lot of gibberish which really makes no sense but affords the UN to break up into chunks of what benefits them.

To warrant OHCHR interference / involvement or any role whatsoever and for Sri Lanka even to consider why we should accept advice and suggestions by the UN/OHCHR it is important to see exactly how far these terminologies used on other nations have succeeded to get anywhere near the objectives that the UN claims to achieve by implementing what they suggest.

TRUTH Commissions have been launched in Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Chile, Czech Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Fiji, Ghana, Guatemala, Haiti, Kenya, Liberia, Morocco, Nepal, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Philippines, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, South Africa, South Korea, East Timor, Uganda, Ukraine, Tunisia,

Would Truth Commissions cover & would UN take action against the countries that are the root cause of the problem?

  • CIA dirty wars in Argentina?
  • US/CIA support for drug lords and terrorists – http://www.salon.com/2014/03/08/35_countries_the_u_s_has_backed_international_crime_partner/
  • Brazil – CIA-backed military coup overthrows the democratically elected government of Joao Goulart. The junta that replaces it will, in the next two decades, become one of the most bloodthirsty in history. General Castelo Branco will create Latin America’s first death squads, or bands of secret police who hunt down communists” for torture, interrogation and murder. Often these communists” are no more than Branco’s political opponents. Later it is revealed that the CIA trains the death squads.
  • Ecuador – A CIA-backed military coup overthrows President Arosemana, whose independent (not socialist) policies have become unacceptable to Washington. A military junta assumes command, cancels the 1964 elections, and begins abusing human rights.
  • CIA support for the death squads in El Salvador
  • secret CIA program in Colombia that has helped kill at least two dozen rebel leaders
  • CIA overthrows the democratically elected Jacob Arbenz in a military coup. Arbenz has threatened to nationalize the Rockefeller-owned United Fruit Company, in which CIA Director Allen Dulles also owns stock. Arbenz is replaced with a series of right-wing dictators whose bloodthirsty policies will kill over 100,000 Guatemalans in the next 40 years.
  • Haiti – The U.S. military helps Papa Doc” Duvalier become dictator of Haiti. He creates his own private police force, the Tonton Macoutes,” who terrorize the population with machetes. Over 100,000 die during the Duvalier family reign.  In 1990 competing against 10 comparatively wealthy candidates, leftist priest Jean-Bertrand Aristide captures 68 percent of the vote. After only eight months in power, however, the CIA-backed military deposes him. More military dictators brutalize the country, as thousands of Haitian refugees escape the turmoil in barely seaworthy boats. As popular opinion calls for Aristide’s return, the CIA begins a disinformation campaign painting the courageous priest as mentally unstable.
  • Panama — The U.S. invades Panama to overthrow a dictator of its own making, General Manuel Noriega. Noriega has been on the CIA’s payroll since 1966, and has been transporting drugs with the CIA’s knowledge since 1972. By the late 80s, Noriega’s growing independence and intransigence have angered Washington…so he has to be removed!

Somehow all the world’s conflicts lead to powerful nations that manufacture arms and find some means to create a conflict so they can end up selling arms to both sides and then prolonging the end by sending UN/NGOs to confuse matters further so that geopolitical and other cultural advantage and agendas and be fulfilled. All the conflicts around the world suffer from these basic maladies which are compounded because there are sets of local traitors who join the bandwagon because the corrupt international system enables them to use these channels to advance their careers, hobnob with foreign counterparts, travel the globe as human rights crusaders with their bag of lies and crocodile tears and finger pointing to preach at the gullible!

 As regards LTTE leaving aside the claims by Tamil politicians if the UN is not going to and India is unwilling to accept its role as the initial creator of Tamil militancy, there is little point in wasting money, time and effort in any Truth Commission.

 India’s role in clandestinely training Sri Lankan Tamil unemployed youth and taking them to be secretly trained in India and sent back under tutelage of the Indian intelligence is a FACT/TRUTH known by all Sri Lankans and confirmed in the Jain Commission report following the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi.

 These trainings took place in 1970s and was followed by Indian trained militants sent by to Sri Lanka carrying out assassinations firstly upon Tamils (LTTE’s first victim was a Tamil Mayor – Alfred Duraiappah in July 27, 1975 followed by shooting of Tamil policemen before the guns were pointed at the Sri Lankan Army)

 India’s role is mentioned by Indians and is now just a common knowledge with the unlikelihood of India apologizing for India’s responsibility/accountability for militancy in Sri Lanka that unleashed 30 years of terror, bloodshed and destruction. We do not need a truth commission to tell us what we all already know. No truth commission will be able to ever get India to apologize either. So what is the point in setting up a plush office, selecting a handful of people giving them massive salaries, bringing down people as witnesses (most of them would be dead by now or not able to remember) and spend years and years tabulating what we already know.

 Morever, we are all well aware that the LTTE was adopted by the West and became its contracted terror friend and that shift would have come with the murder of Rajiv Gandhi. The West’s wings in the form of NGOs / the Church / INGOs & even the UN have in many ways provided covert support for the LTTE otherwise with over 3000 NGOs operating in the North why would none of them even write against the LTTE’s recruitment of children as child soldiers and take action against LTTE? Many of LTTE’s crimes upon Tamils have gone unnoticed because the Tamils that suffered and from whom LTTE plucked the children were from low caste poor Tamil homes and neither LTTE nor the Tamil politicians cared a fig about them.

 Therefore, the fancy notions that the OHCHR is trying to promote are just a waste of time and are merely to camouflage initiatives that cannot be openly told and the best carrot that can advance setting up of these technical help desks and offices is to give the impression that the local decision makers will also make something out of the deals.

 Now these deals are likely to land Sri Lanka in a lot of trouble whatever party decides to accept the carrots and leaving aside the politics it is good for the politicians to open their eyes to the dangers they are blindly walking into.

 It would be better instead of a domestic inquiry if the OHCHR/UN can investigate

  • West’s role in world terror
  • UN role in functioning as a puppet of the West
  • INGO role in advancing agendas of the West
  • Media role in fabricating lies for the West
  • India’s role in foolishly destabalizing all Asian neighbors
  • How all above fills objective of neo-colonial imperial expansion
  • Admit to the world the terror groups the above have funded / the covert-overt initiatives their Govts have sponsored / the terror-fronts that are involved in global illegal activities masquerading as human rights/charities

    UN is Global Empire building by stealth and other means. Sri Lanka should not be silly enough to fall its silly traps. UN is a totally discredited organization. Sri Lanka would still be at war with the LTTE today, if Sri lanka allowed the UN to run the show. Mahinda Rajapaksha didn’t tell the UN and NATO to get lost and mind their own business Sri Lanka would still be at war. Thanks to MR for all his faults. Sri Lanka has peace. If you analyse closely the UN is in fact instigator of conflict throughout the globe. In all probability, today Sri Lanka would have been further ravaged by the LTTE and you could see a UN-NATO intervention military force would have been deployed similar to what happened with Kosovo or sierra leone or afghanistan. To quote in their words “restore peace and democracy”. But really is for western colonialist elites in USA and Europe to take more direct control of territories. Oldest trick in the imperialist book. Sri Lanka should be wise enough in the 21st century to chart its own path without following prey to global imperialist vultures of which the UN along with NATO are their main bully weopons.

    At last now SL must learn HOW to fight wars WITHOUT getting into war crimes BS.

    SL should use NON STATE ACTORS to do most crucial military and para military operations that may become war crimes if done by the army. NON STATE ACTORS are immune from war crimes responsibility as we can see how TNA, GTF, LTTE are not blamed!! This is what USA, Endia, Pakistan, Israel, Saudi, now China, UK, France, Russia, etc. do.

    During Premathasa’s time he raised MANY non state actor groups like yellow cats, black eagles, PRRA, etc. They did all the nasty acts saving the army. And they got away scot free.

    Just imagine the possibilities!! It is better to light one candle than blame the darkness.
