UN: Investigate Sri Lanka War Crimes

This past Monday, the U.N. finally released the report of its advisory panel on accountability in Sri Lanka.  Thanks go to everyone who sent an online letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon asking him to release this report.

The report found credible allegations that tens of thousands of civilians were killed in the final months of Sri Lanka’s civil war in early 2009, and that both the government forces and the opposition Tamil Tigers violated international law, including committing war crimes.  The panel recommended, among other things, that the U.N. establish an international investigation into these allegations.

Today, Ban’s spokesperson explained that Ban would not initiate an international investigation into these allegations unless the Sri Lankan government consented or he was asked to do so by a U.N body such as the Security Council, the Human Rights Council or the General Assembly.

Well, the Sri Lankan government isn’t likely to consent.  They’ve rejected the panel’s report, calling it “flawed” and “biased.”  President Rajapaksa has called for mass protests against the report on May 1.

We’ll need action by U.N. member states to establish an international   investigation.  The U.S. government could play a vital role in this effort.  Please write to Secretary Hillary Clinton and ask her to support the establishment of an international war crimes investigation in Sri Lanka.

  1. Oh….I was wondering as to when Mr. Jim M. D. was going to publish this post and boy am I glad that you did…

    There are many stories behind this unwarranted report which it self is against the regulations of the United Nations. However, my only worry is about the action Amnesty International takes be it by this report by UN or else wise.

    As I have mentioned many a times prior to this post, we saw a zillion of posts pressurizing the government of Sri Lanka to be accountable for so called human rights violations against a branded, retarded bunch of Terrorists. But, we never saw a single post demanding the arrest of any of the remaining Terrorists or any action being taken for their subsidiary groups that funded these retards.

    Jim, I reiterate,

    1. When do we see you lobby against Adela Balasingham who lives in London, wife of former retard Anton Balasingham where there is plenty of video evidence of her hanging cyanide capsules around young girls necks and handing AK47 riffles to them??

    2. When do we see AI pressure the international community to arrest those terrorists grouping as Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam?? They funded the retards to kill all those innocent civilians including the innocent Tamils who were held hostage and as humans shields during the last stages of the war, which directly effected in some of them being killed.

    3. Also, did you give any consideration to the article below prior to carrying out your campaigns??
    http://www.asiantribune.com/news/2011/04/19/final

    This clearly mentions what happened during the final stages of the war and most of all, it comes from a Tamil Gentleman who went against the GOSL's word of no being in the war zone. So what about what he says about the SL army? How they treated the wounded including the LTTE carders ?

    We wish to see some proper unbiased Human Rights Activities ??

  2. The Government of Sri Lanka today has made a statement with related to this illegal panel appointed by Ban ki Moon at his own will than going through the security council or consulting any member state.

    I will follow this tread keenly – would also like to see whether the representatives of the Retarded LTTE would actually come up with their own posts and actually have a decent conversation here than copy and paste articles from other websites.

  6. Fifty thousand innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered on the sandy beaches and in the jungles of Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lankan Military while the whole world stood back and watched.
    Our international legal systems are still failing to bring the culprits to justice

    Number of people massacred on the beaches of Sri Lanka is almost ten times of the people died in the Tiananmen Square massacre in China.

    United Nations, who is supposed to be a guardian for the oppressed people in the world turned out to be a silent spectator of a man made disaster that has taken the lives of many thousands.

    Leaders of Sri Lanka and some responsible officers in the UN, should be questioned in international courts in order to find out if they were responsible for the deaths of innocent Tamils.

Dublin war-crimes tribunal, conducted by Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal (PPT) based in Milan, which held hearings on 14th and 15th of January 2010 has found that Sri Lanka Government is “guilty of War-Crimes” and “guilty of Crimes Against Humanity.” Eye witnesses included several escapees from the final week of Sri Lanka offensive in the Mullaitivu “No Fire Zone” where more than thousands of innocent Tamil civilians were allegedly slaughtered by Sri Lanka Army with heavy weapons.

    1. Please stop copying and pasting articles – try to be creative for once with your retarded brains.

    2. Please discuss among your fellow retards and arrive amongst your selves on a proper figure you intend to lobby for – one say 40,000 now you say 50,000 and another retard said 100,000 – the International community is bamboozled by your inability to arrive at a figure.

    3. Please let us know, from that figure you arrive at, how many were killed by the LTTE whilst trying to escape the Human Shield.

    4. Please let us know the course of action you have planned to punish the remaining LTTE supporters for the brutality they carried out against Tamil People (Oh, did I forget you are one of them?)

    See what happened during the last stages of the battle.

    Is there any more to hide ???? The GOSL has been constant in their stance – Not so with the LTTE and their members – why ?? You don't even agree on a number of civilian deaths.. Why ??

  22. The panel report should never be called a "UN report"! As a matter of fact, the special Commission for Human Rights that met in Geneva in the immediate aftermath of the wiping out of the LTTE, overwhelmingly rejected the Western attempts to resurrect the Terorists by dismissing allegations that the Sri Lankan government violated human rights.

    So this report does not carry any weight, hence, AI should totally ignore such baseless report that satisfies personal agendas of a few people.

    We’ll need action by U.N. member states to establish an international investigation. The U.S. government could play a vital role in this effort. Please write to Secretary Hillary Clinton and ask her to support the establishment of an international war crimes investigation in Sri Lanka.

    If you want action to be taken by the U.N. Member states as you clearly say, Why tell Sen. Hilary Clinton who gives Blonds a new meaning ?? Is Hilary C the god almighty of the U.N. member states ??

    Why not tell Russian counterpart or the Chinese counterpart ?? Why USA only ??

    Also, you mention clearly in your report that LTTE was equally reponsible – why not take action against them???

    What's your Problem you goon ???? Is this what you call being Unbiased and being representatives for Humans of this world ?

  30. Here we go again. AI has now declared war on Sri Lanka. Great news for the dregs of the Eelam struggle.

    So, in the interests of balance, openness and "accountability", a simple question for AI.

    How many representations and meetings did AI have with UN Sec Gen's(totally unbiased, totally neutral, factually 100% accurate) committee?

    Also interesting that AI has yet to call for a single UN investigation against Western bloc countries who have collectively racked up an outstanding high score of over 1.3 million dead civilians (mainly Arabs) in their wars.

  31. Oh….I was wondering as to when Mr. Jim M. D. was going to publish this post and boy am I glad that you did…

    There are many stories behind this unwarranted report which it self is against the regulations of the United Nations. However, my only worry is about the action Amnesty International takes be it by this report by UN or else wise.

    As I have mentioned many a times prior to this post, we saw a zillion of posts pressurizing the government of Sri Lanka to be accountable for so called human rights violations against a branded, retarded bunch of Terrorists. But, we never saw a single post demanding the arrest of any of the remaining Terrorists or any action being taken for their subsidiary groups that funded these retards.

    Jim, I reiterate,

    1. When do we see you lobby against Adela Balasingham who lives in London, wife of former retard Anton Balasingham where there is plenty of video evidence of her hanging cyanide capsules around young girls necks and handing AK47 riffles to them??

    2. When do we see AI pressure the international community to arrest those terrorists grouping as Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam?? They funded the retards to kill all those innocent civilians including the innocent Tamils who were held hostage and as humans shields during the last stages of the war, which directly effected in some of them being killed.

    3. Also, did you give any consideration to the article below prior to carrying out your campaigns??

    http://www.asiantribune.com/news/2011/04/19/final-days-vanni-600-tamils-shot-and-killed-stray-dogs-first-person-revelation

    This clearly mentions what happened during the final stages of the war and most of all, it comes from a Tamil Gentleman who went against the GOSL’s word of no being in the war zone. So what about what he says about the SL army? How they treated the wounded including the LTTE carders ?

    We wish to see some proper unbiased Human Rights Activities ??

  32. The Government of Sri Lanka today has made a statement with related to this illegal panel appointed by Ban ki Moon at his own will than going through the security council or consulting any member state.

    I will follow this tread keenly – would also like to see whether the representatives of the Retarded LTTE would actually come up with their own posts and actually have a decent conversation here than copy and paste articles from other websites.

  33. Sri Lanka is simply a rock state that no longer has any respect for human rights. Leaders of this country are only interested in fulfilling their racist agendas and to satisfy their own greed.
    Sri Lankan government regularly appoint individuals with doctorates and other higher degrees as cabinet ministers and propaganda activists to lobby in the UN and in foreign countries. Many of them speak in fluent English and having citizenships in other western countries and their main role is to justify the atrocities that are committed by the Sri Lankan government. These individuals are experts in blaming the victims and protecting the criminals.
    Sri Lankan government also has their own pseudo terror experts working in foreign soils and their main role is to defend the Sri Lankan government and to identify anyone that opposes the Sri Lankan government as terrorist. Sri Lanka spends millions on propaganda and to pay for consultants and propaganda firms that are working round the clock to hide or justify the atrocities committed by the rulers of Sri Lanka.

    The Death Of A Nation http://www.thesundayleader.lk/2010/09/05/the-deat
    Mahinda’s vision does not extend beyond his own body and blood. He has no thought of the next 200 years, of what these powers might do in other hands, of what sort of template he is laying for a future nation.

    In the last sixty five years three hundred thousands were slaughtered, several thousands were raped, tortured, imprisoned and disappeared in Sri Lanka. More than a million have fled the country with the fear of persecution. 99% of the victims were Tamils and 99% of the perpetrators were Sri Lankan military personal or members of Buddhist Sinhala extremist groups. One doesn't need to be a rocket scientist to understand what is going on in this country.

  36. Fifty thousand innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered on the sandy beaches and in the jungles of Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lankan Military while the whole world stood back and watched.
    Our international legal systems are still failing to bring the culprits to justice

    Number of people massacred on the beaches of Sri Lanka is almost ten times of the people died in the Tiananmen Square massacre in China.

    United Nations, who is supposed to be a guardian for the oppressed people in the world turned out to be a silent spectator of a man made disaster that has taken the lives of many thousands.

    Leaders of Sri Lanka and some responsible officers in the UN, should be questioned in international courts in order to find out if they were responsible for the deaths of innocent Tamils.

    Tamil Genocide in Sri Lanka Emerges Into Public View

  37. Dublin war-crimes tribunal, conducted by Permanent Peoples’ Tribunal (PPT) based in Milan, which held hearings on 14th and 15th of January 2010 has found that Sri Lanka Government is “guilty of War-Crimes” and “guilty of Crimes Against Humanity.” Eye witnesses included several escapees from the final week of Sri Lanka offensive in the Mullaitivu “No Fire Zone” where more than thousands of innocent Tamil civilians were allegedly slaughtered by Sri Lanka Army with heavy weapons.

    As many as 40,000 civilians may have perished in the last phase of Sri Lanka’s offensive against the insurgent Tamil Tigers, with government forces blamed for “large-scale and widespread shelling,” according to a new report from a UN panel established by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

  38. Dear Rip Van Winkle ,
    how long you can hide the war crime.

    Channel 4 is to air “probably the most horrific” footage it has ever shown in an investigation into alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka, The Guardian reported Tuesday. Because of the horrific nature of the videos, the film, presented by Jon Snow, will air in a late night slot in May and C4 said that “distressing images will be preceded by appropriate warnings”.

Many of them speak in fluent English and having citizenships in other western countries and their main role is to justify the atrocities that are committed by the Sri Lankan government. These individuals are experts in blaming the victims and protecting the criminals.
    Sri Lankan government also has their own pseudo terror experts working in foreign soils and their main role is to defend the Sri Lankan government and to identify anyone that opposes the Sri Lankan government as terrorist.

  41. The panel report should never be called a “UN report”! As a matter of fact, the special Commission for Human Rights that met in Geneva in the immediate aftermath of the wiping out of the LTTE, overwhelmingly rejected the Western attempts to resurrect the Terorists by dismissing allegations that the Sri Lankan government violated human rights.

    So this report does not carry any weight, hence, AI should totally ignore such baseless report that satisfies personal agendas of a few people.

    2. Please discuss among your fellow retards and arrive amongst your selves on a proper figure you intend to lobby for – one say 40,000 now you say 50,000 and another retard said 100,000 – the International community is bamboozled by your inability to arrive at a figure.

    3. Please let us know, from that figure you arrive at, how many were killed by the LTTE whilst trying to escape the Human Shield.

    4. Please let us know the course of action you have planned to punish the remaining LTTE supporters for the brutality they carried out against Tamil People (Oh, did I forget you are one of them?)

    See what happened during the last stages of the battle.

    This is what happened to the innocent who tried to escape the human Shield. Listen to the conversations – it re-enforces what the Tamil MP Hon. S. Kanagaratnam who was in the zone and experienced the brutality had to say. I have provided the link in my previous post.

    Also my friend, Ban him self has said that UN or anyone else cannot take any action against GOSL if other member states do not agree – Guess What ?? Russia has already rubbished the report and so has China !!

    Is there any more to hide ???? The GOSL has been constant in their stance – Not so with the LTTE and their members – why ?? You don’t even agree on a number of civilian deaths.. Why ??

  44. Hey You Lunetic…

    You say in your post,

    We’ll need action by U.N. member states to establish an international investigation. The U.S. government could play a vital role in this effort. Please write to Secretary Hillary Clinton and ask her to support the establishment of an international war crimes investigation in Sri Lanka.

    If you want action to be taken by the U.N. Member states as you clearly say, Why tell Sen. Hilary Clinton who gives Blonds a new meaning ?? Is Hilary C the god almighty of the U.N. member states ??

    Why not tell Russian counterpart or the Chinese counterpart ?? Why USA only ??

    Also, you mention clearly in your report that LTTE was equally reponsible – why not take action against them???

    What’s your Problem you goon ???? Is this what you call being Unbiased and being representatives for Humans of this world ?

  45. Sri Lanka is a failed state. Now sanctions is the only answer. Tamils have waited long enough for justice. Delayed justice is denied justice. If we allow Sri Lanka to get away with mass murders, human right abuses and crimes against humanity, Sri Lanka will continue its agenda of silent genocide of Tamils with the blessings of the international community.
    UNSG must act without delay and establish an independent Tribunal for Sri Lanka.

  46. “The way this conflict was conducted, under the guise of fighting terrorism, challenged the very foundations of the rules of war and cost the lives of tens of thousands of civilians,” the The High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said. “I hope the disturbing new information contained in this report will shock the conscience of the international community into finally taking serious action. As the report itself says, addressing violations of international humanitarian or human rights law is not a matter of choice or policy; it is a duty under domestic and international law,” http://www.ohchr.org/en/NewsEvents/Pages/DisplayN

    What the panel did not know was that the persecution of the Tamil population underlines the communal/racist character of the civil war. Successive Sinhala governments fought the war to entrench the dominance of the Sinhala elite that has used communal violence and systematic discrimination against the Tamil minority from the date of independence in 1948 to make Tamils second class citizens in their own Traditional Homeland of the East and North of Sri-Lanka. What the Tamils are claiming for was for self determination rights for themselves and their TH. This is a political problem and therefore needed a political solution. However the Sinhalese went in for a military solution with accompanying loss of lives, money and property because they did not want to share Sri-Lanka with the Tamils; out of communalism/racism. http://www.tamilcanadian.com/article/6089

    The international community of world nations, UN should rise up to the occasion like it dealt with, Libya, Ivory Coast and Rwanda. The UN report said that the alleged crimes of both the warring parties and subsequent cover-up by the government constituted "an assault on the entire system of international law and security". Srebrenica recalls a painful and costly UN failure. The government of Sri Lanka must not be allowed to get away with it. Sri Lanka cannot be allowed to erode the basic tenets of international peace, justice and security. If the government of Sri Lanka is allowed to get away with it, the system of international justice and practices adopted thereafter on the back of the crimes in Rwanda and Bosnia would be weakened to the detriment of world peace.

  49. Singa,

    You say (or your copy paste article says) that GOSL has appointed many individuals with Doctorates ("Educated") who are citizens of the west to reply to the situation in SL. May I ask you (or the writer of the post) How many such people have you appointed to basically lie about Sri Lanka ?? (Oh, I don't mean educated guys with doctorates, but, some retard)

    You need to get your self a lesson on this word called "diplomacy" prior to copying and pasting such stupid posts that let you down further.

    Bav…

    Eelam is the failed state – reason – it did not exist, does not exist and will not exist.

    Check reports, SL is growing at 8% an annum after the death of the retards. you hardly can call such state a failed state.

    Also, you calling for sanctions based on your theory proves the point of you being a retard. Have you thought for a second who is going to be hard hit by any Sanction ?? The very people in Jaffna who are just about to and trying to get their lives kick started. So, do you intend to starve the very people you intend to stand up for?? I still will not be surprised if that is your intention because, you used them as human shields and did shoot them at point blank range when they wanted to escape. Hence, I have my absolute doubts of your love towards the innocent Tamil People of Sri Lanka.

  50. Rip Van Winkle ! Says: April 27th, 2011 at 9:17 pm
    Eelam is the failed state – reason – it did not exist, does not exist and will not exist.

    Tamil Elam was born in the nineteen fifties, when the Sinhalese majority in newly-independent Sri Lanka set about to build a national identity by appealing to Sinhalese nationalism. By an act of the Sinhalese-dominated parliament, a million Tamils were stripped of citizenship and franchise on the grounds that their parents or grandparents had been born in India. The proportion of Tamil voters in the electorate instantly dropped from 33% to 20%, giving the Sinhalese a lock on the 2/3 parliamentary majority needed to pass any law they wanted. Sinhalese became the official language of Sri Lanka. Tamil civil servants, who had dominated the English colonial administration, were summarily fired. Under the guise of agricultural schemes, the Sinhalese government pushed Tamils off their land, flooding newly-created enlarged tracts of farmland with previously landless Sinhalese. Pogroms and general oppression ensued. In the 1958 riots alone, 25,000 Tamils were forced to flee into the northern part of the island. An effort was even made to deport “stateless” disenfranchised Tamils to India. The Tamil response to this campaign was predictable and obvious.

    At first, they followed the non-violent path of Mohandas Gandhi. Old men sat at the entrances of government offices, chanting hymns and preventing government clerks from entering by blocking the entrances with their bodies. The Sinhalese police beat them aside with clubs. Peaceful protests were dispersed by Sinhalese thugs acting with semi-official sanction. The peaceful way of satyagraha was of no avail. Gandhi’s approach had worked with the British because the refined British public and media would take their government to task over the perceived violations of Indian civil rights. It would not work against the Sinhalese because the Sinhalese public and media eagerly applauded the violation of Tamil civil rights.

    By the nineteen seventies, the Tamil language was banned and Tamil contacts with the Tamil population of India were forcibly cut off. A policy of deliberate discrimination in everything from housing and employment to university scholarships pushed the Tamils to the fringes of society and sat the Sinhalese firmly on top. Sinhalese troops patrolled Tamil villages, assaulting anyone who dared to look at them the wrong way. A deliberate campaign of ethnic cleansing was pushing Tamils deeper and deeper into the north of Ceylon. There was no doubt in the mind of any sane observer that the Sinhalese would not stop until they slowly, by stages, pushed the Tamils into the ocean. In fact, the Sinhalese said as much. Tamils, according to the Sinhalese, were foreigners who belonged in India.

    When Tamil youth demanded action in the face of government oppression, their elders quelled them in the name of “national unity” and “non-violence”. They were told that Hinduism prohibited violence. They were told that parliamentary means could ensure their rights. They were told that this Tamil politician or that Tamil politician or some other Tamil politician would somehow magically make an agreement with the Sinhalese in exchange for his vote in one coalition or another.

    The agreements were duly made. And duly broken. The oppression continued. In the end, the youth did the only rational thing they could have done. They rejected their elders. They rejected the Sinhalese State. They rejected non-violence. They demanded a country of their own. At gunpoint.

    It was the seventies. The West seemed on the run, the Soviets were winning the Cold War and Marxist rebels were popping up the world over. For a young man rebelling against the established order and the religion of his elders, Marxism was the logical way to go. Therefore it is not surprising, though unfortunate for the Tamil people on Ceylon, that those who sought to liberate them from Sinhalese rule were mostly Marxists. In May 1976, a glorified street gang of brutal thugs who overlaid savagery with Marxist rhetoric adopted the grandiose name “Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam”. Their leader, a twenty-one-year-old high school dropout named Vellupilai Prabhakaran, had already set the tone in July of the previous year by shooting the mayor of Jaffna as the latter arrived to pray at a Hindu temple.

    Things spiraled on from there and, as generally happens in conflicts of this type, all pretense of civilization was rapidly thrown aside. The point of no return came in July of 1983, when, allegedly in response to an LTTE ambush that killed 15 Sri Lankan soldiers, Sinhalese civilians rioted across the island, murdering some 3,000 Tamils. The rioters had official government voter lists showing the names and addresses of Tamils. The Sinhalese army and police stood by and did nothing for days as entire neighborhoods were burned to the ground. As Tamil motorists were pulled out of their cars and burned alive at improvised checkpoints, whole families were hacked to pieces in their living rooms and Tamil temples were put to the torch by Sinhalese mobs led by plainclothes police, spontaneity , unlike brutality, was not in evidence. The event would forever be remembered by the Tamils as Black July.

    In response to this final atrocity, hundreds of thousands of Tamils fled abroad, while those remaining on Ceylon made their way to the North and East of the island. Because of the fear and desperation put forth by this, about 1.1 Million Tamils have fled the country.

    The world tested all its weapons on tamils through GOSL, 200 billions dollars on war, 3000 times air strike-more than the explosive used in Hiroshima, cluster bombs, chemical bombs, 5000-6000 shelled daily, over 50,000 people were killed within three month, No security council meeting held, but when North korea tested one bomb underground, immediate meeting held. Again for Libya, What Is The Difference Between Libyan Civilians And Tamil Civilians?

    Fifty thousand innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered on the sandy beaches and in the jungles of Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lankan Military while the whole world stood back and watched.

    At first, they followed the non-violent path of Mohandas Gandhi. Old men sat at the entrances of government offices, chanting hymns and preventing government clerks from entering by blocking the entrances with their bodies. The Sinhalese police beat them aside with clubs. Peaceful protests were dispersed by Sinhalese thugs acting with semi-official sanction. The peaceful way of satyagraha was of no avail. Gandhi’s approach had worked with the British because the refined British public and media would take their government to task over the perceived violations of Indian civil rights. It would not work against the Sinhalese because the Sinhalese public and media eagerly applauded the violation of Tamil civil rights.

    By the nineteen seventies, the Tamil language was banned and Tamil contacts with the Tamil population of India were forcibly cut off. A policy of deliberate discrimination in everything from housing and employment to university scholarships pushed the Tamils to the fringes of society and sat the Sinhalese firmly on top. Sinhalese troops patrolled Tamil villages, assaulting anyone who dared to look at them the wrong way. A deliberate campaign of ethnic cleansing was pushing Tamils deeper and deeper into the north of Ceylon. There was no doubt in the mind of any sane observer that the Sinhalese would not stop until they slowly, by stages, pushed the Tamils into the ocean. In fact, the Sinhalese said as much. Tamils, according to the Sinhalese, were foreigners who belonged in India.

    When Tamil youth demanded action in the face of government oppression, their elders quelled them in the name of “national unity” and “non-violence”. They were told that Hinduism prohibited violence. They were told that parliamentary means could ensure their rights. They were told that this Tamil politician or that Tamil politician or some other Tamil politician would somehow magically make an agreement with the Sinhalese in exchange for his vote in one coalition or another.

    The agreements were duly made. And duly broken. The oppression continued. In the end, the youth did the only rational thing they could have done. They rejected their elders. They rejected the Sinhalese State. They rejected non-violence. They demanded a country of their own. At gunpoint.

    It was the seventies. The West seemed on the run, the Soviets were winning the Cold War and Marxist rebels were popping up the world over. For a young man rebelling against the established order and the religion of his elders, Marxism was the logical way to go. Therefore it is not surprising, though unfortunate for the Tamil people on Ceylon, that those who sought to liberate them from Sinhalese rule were mostly Marxists. In May 1976, a glorified street gang of brutal thugs who overlaid savagery with Marxist rhetoric adopted the grandiose name “Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam”. Their leader, a twenty-one-year-old high school dropout named Vellupilai Prabhakaran, had already set the tone in July of the previous year by shooting the mayor of Jaffna as the latter arrived to pray at a Hindu temple.

    Things spiraled on from there and, as generally happens in conflicts of this type, all pretense of civilization was rapidly thrown aside. The point of no return came in July of 1983, when, allegedly in response to an LTTE ambush that killed 15 Sri Lankan soldiers, Sinhalese civilians rioted across the island, murdering some 3,000 Tamils. The rioters had official government voter lists showing the names and addresses of Tamils. The Sinhalese army and police stood by and did nothing for days as entire neighborhoods were burned to the ground. As Tamil motorists were pulled out of their cars and burned alive at improvised checkpoints, whole families were hacked to pieces in their living rooms and Tamil temples were put to the torch by Sinhalese mobs led by plainclothes police, spontaneity , unlike brutality, was not in evidence. The event would forever be remembered by the Tamils as Black July.

    In response to this final atrocity, hundreds of thousands of Tamils fled abroad, while those remaining on Ceylon made their way to the North and East of the island. Because of the fear and desperation put forth by this, about 1.1 Million Tamils have fled the country.

    The world tested all its weapons on tamils through GOSL, 200 billions dollars on war, 3000 times air strike-more than the explosive used in Hiroshima, cluster bombs, chemical bombs, 5000-6000 shelled daily, over 50,000 people were killed within three month, No security council meeting held, but when North korea tested one bomb underground, immediate meeting held. Again for Libya, What Is The Difference Between Libyan Civilians And Tamil Civilians?

    Fifty thousand innocent men, women and children were brutally murdered on the sandy beaches and in the jungles of Sri Lanka, by the Sri Lankan Military while the whole world stood back and watched.

    Eelam is the failed state – reason – it did not exist, does not exist and will not exist.

    Tamil Elam was born in the nineteen fifties, when the Sinhalese majority in newly-independent Sri Lanka set about to build a national identity by appealing to Sinhalese nationalism. By an act of the Sinhalese-dominated parliament, a million Tamils were stripped of citizenship and franchise on the grounds that their parents or grandparents had been born in India. The proportion of Tamil voters in the electorate instantly dropped from 33% to 20%, giving the Sinhalese a lock on the 2/3 parliamentary majority needed to pass any law they wanted. Sinhalese became the official language of Sri Lanka. Tamil civil servants, who had dominated the English colonial administration, were summarily fired. Under the guise of agricultural schemes, the Sinhalese government pushed Tamils off their land, flooding newly-created enlarged tracts of farmland with previously landless Sinhalese. Pogroms and general oppression ensued. In the 1958 riots alone, 25,000 Tamils were forced to flee into the northern part of the island. An effort was even made to deport “stateless” disenfranchised Tamils to India. The Tamil response to this campaign was predictable and obvious.

  58. Sri Lanka is a failed state. Now sanctions is the only answer. Tamils have waited long enough for justice. Delayed justice is denied justice. If we allow Sri Lanka to get away with mass murders, human right abuses and crimes against humanity, Sri Lanka will continue its agenda of silent genocide of Tamils with the blessings of the international community.
    UNSG must act without delay and establish an independent Tribunal for Sri Lanka.

  59. Singa,

    You say (or your copy paste article says) that GOSL has appointed many individuals with Doctorates (“Educated”) who are citizens of the west to reply to the situation in SL. May I ask you (or the writer of the post) How many such people have you appointed to basically lie about Sri Lanka ?? (Oh, I don’t mean educated guys with doctorates, but, some retard)

    You need to get your self a lesson on this word called “diplomacy” prior to copying and pasting such stupid posts that let you down further.

    Bav…

    Eelam is the failed state – reason – it did not exist, does not exist and will not exist.

    Check reports, SL is growing at 8% an annum after the death of the retards. you hardly can call such state a failed state.

    Also, you calling for sanctions based on your theory proves the point of you being a retard. Have you thought for a second who is going to be hard hit by any Sanction ?? The very people in Jaffna who are just about to and trying to get their lives kick started. So, do you intend to starve the very people you intend to stand up for?? I still will not be surprised if that is your intention because, you used them as human shields and did shoot them at point blank range when they wanted to escape. Hence, I have my absolute doubts of your love towards the innocent Tamil People of Sri Lanka.

  60. “The way this conflict was conducted, under the guise of fighting terrorism, challenged the very foundations of the rules of war and cost the lives of tens of thousands of civilians,” the The High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said. “I hope the disturbing new information contained in this report will shock the conscience of the international community into finally taking serious action. As the report itself says, addressing violations of international humanitarian or human rights law is not a matter of choice or policy; it is a duty under domestic and international law,”

    What the panel did not know was that the persecution of the Tamil population underlines the communal/racist character of the civil war. Successive Sinhala governments fought the war to entrench the dominance of the Sinhala elite that has used communal violence and systematic discrimination against the Tamil minority from the date of independence in 1948 to make Tamils second class citizens in their own Traditional Homeland of the East and North of Sri-Lanka. What the Tamils are claiming for was for self determination rights for themselves and their TH. This is a political problem and therefore needed a political solution. However the Sinhalese went in for a military solution with accompanying loss of lives, money and property because they did not want to share Sri-Lanka with the Tamils; out of communalism/racism.

    The international community of world nations, UN should rise up to the occasion like it dealt with, Libya, Ivory Coast and Rwanda. The UN report said that the alleged crimes of both the warring parties and subsequent cover-up by the government constituted “an assault on the entire system of international law and security”. Srebrenica recalls a painful and costly UN failure. The government of Sri Lanka must not be allowed to get away with it. Sri Lanka cannot be allowed to erode the basic tenets of international peace, justice and security. If the government of Sri Lanka is allowed to get away with it, the system of international justice and practices adopted thereafter on the back of the crimes in Rwanda and Bosnia would be weakened to the detriment of world peace.

    PTK hospital, legitimate military target – Gotabhaya
    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=28274
    “The deliberate targeting of Hospitals and Civilians by the Government of Sri Lanka (GOSL) violates the Geneva Conventions and is thus a war crime.

    “The GOSL Defense Secretary Rajapakse has publicly admitted that they have turned the Tamil North of the country into a so-called free-fire zone, which is clearly illegal and criminal under International Humanitarian Law.

    “It is the culmination of the long-standing GOSL policy to inflict genocide upon the Tamils in violation of the 1948 Genocide Convention, to which Sri Lanka is a contracting party. As a United States Citizen Defense Secretary Rajapakse should be prosecuted by the United States government for violating the US Genocide Convention Implementation Act and the US War Crimes Act.”

    •Attacked hospitals and other civilian institutions
    •Executed prisoners of war
    •Killed rebel soldiers who were trying to surrender
    •Secretly abducted and killed Tamil civilians, particularly children and young men
    •Failed to provide adequate food, water and medical supplies to people displaced by fighting

    They are not allowed to get out of their dwellings in the nights

    Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers restrict and harass the relatives and friends of the resettled Tamils

    SLA soldiers inspect the National Identity Cards of the relatives and friends of the Tamils visiting them besides registering their particulars.

    Meanwhile, the soldiers subject the Tamils to severe interrogation after the visitors had left and these harassments have made the resettled Tamils to request their relatives and friends not to visit them.

    From the 450 Tractors gifted by India to the Northern Tamils , 385 tractors were stolen by the Sri Lanka Only 65 of India gifted tractors were given intended recipients – the Tamils

  64. Sinhalese destroying Tamil lands

    Illegal excavation of limestone threatens ecology of Jaffna

    Threatening the entire groundwater and fragile ecology of Jaffna peninsula, a private Sinhalese company is engaged in the illegal excavation of limestone in the High Security Zone (HSZ) while Rajapaksa government refuses to reveal details of this enterprise in the area from Maaviddapuram to Keerimalai where the uprooted Tamil residents have not been allowed to resettle for the past twenty years.

    The indiscriminate excavation of limestone in a 4 sq km area at depths of nearly 40 feet has already caused seepage of sea water and it is feared the area becoming submerged.

    The underground channels that bring in freshwater to the innumerable aquifers of the peninsula, have an underneath entry into sea adjacent to the locality of the quarries. It is obvious how indiscriminate quarrying and the possibility of seawater coming inside can affect the potable water of the masses.

  65. Rajapaksa lies about “development” in the North.

    Rajapaksa is pillaging and plundering the North instead and transporting everything to South.

    I’m really confused. I thought the LTTE was meant to protect Tamils from the ‘Genocidal’ Sri Lankan armed forces? So why would they attack and murder Tamil children on whose behalf they claimed to be fighting?

  69. I’m horror-struck by Sri Lanka Army brutality and my hands were shaking so misspelled the word

    Sri Lanka is an evil island populated with animals !!!!!!!!!!!

    Sri Lanka wi with the ‘nod and wink’ of the Western-world planned and carried out the annihilation of Tamils, telling the world that the LTTE, the terrorist organization, was different and the Tamils were different and that they would look into the genuine grievances of them.

    What a shame, this they faithfully followed what the Sri Lanka Govt. was telling the innocent and busy world while planning and executing the slaughter of the 40 000 innocent Tamils.

  78. The Sinhala army killed without any consideration for human lives.

    Rajapaksas are Fools !!

    Now the Foolish leaders have to pay the price for their folly.

    Gothabaya Rajapaksa was not qualified or experienced to be defence secretary.

    He made the mess in Sri Lanka

    Fool rush in where angel fear to tread.

  79. Rajapakse thought that he can intimidate, threaten and bully the world leaders the same way as he was treating the Tamils in Sri Lanka!!

    The Leaders are watching every movement of this alleged war criminal regime and when time comes they will strike a big blow!

    This regime and its forces have committed crimes against humanity that no other nation on earth has committed on their minority.

    The Rajapaksa government was fooling the world like George Bush quoting terrorism while Rajapaksa was committing state terrorism in Sri Lanka

    The indiscriminate excavation of limestone in a 4 sq km area at depths of nearly 40 feet has already caused seepage of sea water and it is feared the area becoming submerged.

    The underground channels that bring in freshwater to the innumerable aquifers of the peninsula, have an underneath entry into sea adjacent to the locality of the quarries. It is obvious how indiscriminate quarrying and the possibility of seawater coming inside can affect the potable water of the masses.

  87. Rajapaksa lies about “development” in the North.

    Rajapaksa is pillaging and plundering the North instead and transporting everything to South.

  88. Tamil

    My lord…I can’t watch these pictures. I knew something like this was going in the most ruthless terror state of Sri Lanka . Never knew this was happening.

    I am proud to be a fool than a brainy retarded like you purely because I support a side that Saved Tamils from a group who were suppose to stand for Tamils, but, killed more Tamils than anyone else in the History of Sri Lanka.

    The unholy madness of Wlapalle Piribaharan started with a killing of a Honorable Tamil names Alfred Duraiappa.. Let's see the lists..

    So my dear Brainy Sashi – I would prefer to be a fool instead of standing for the justice you are fighting for.

    P.s. Small suggestion – try looking for your brains the next time you go to the toilet. I feel that you have dropped it while you were pooping to post such a hideous post..

  90. I’m horror-struck by Sri Lanka Army brutality and my hands were shaking so misspelled the word

    So the correct spelling is below

    Sri Lanka is an evil island populated with animals !!!!!!!!!!!

  91. OMG.

    UN should bring these people to justice.

    How come the human world allowed this to happen in the first place?

    It is unbeleivable.

  92. Mango
    Rip Van Winkle

    Are you singing for your supper ?

    How is the your revenue? Any ‘donations’ from the Mass Murderer Mahinda’s coffers lately?

  93. @ Rajash: I wouldn’t dream of taking money from GoSL. They can’t afford my fees! Anyway, better defending Sri Lanka than sucking up to the LTTE and AI.

    You talk of a ‘mass murderers’ but pathetically fail to mention that fat psychopath, Prahbha who lead an entire generation of Tamil children to their deaths.

    Please explain using your Eelam Logic what happened on this occasion, in Feb 2009.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PxDHp2nvz9w

    Here’s a female (Tamil) LTTE suicide bomber exploding and killing (Tamil) children and (Tamil) civilians escaping (Tamil) LTTE ‘freedom fighters’ by seeking shelter & protection in a (Genocidal Sri Lankan) Army IDP camp.

    I’m really confused. I thought the LTTE was meant to protect Tamils from the ‘Genocidal’ Sri Lankan armed forces? So why would they attack and murder Tamil children on whose behalf they claimed to be fighting?

  94. Mango

    Don’t sell your human decency for a fistful bloodstained money from Mass Murderer Mahinda !!!!!!!

  95. Rajash

    Yes, Mango and Rip Van Winkle are talking garbage.

    It is not difficult for the Sri Lanka government to make people like them propagandists as their steady stream of garbage comments clearly show here

    Mango and Rip Van Winkle twist everything around

    Their posts show their true racist mentlity

    When Mango and Rip Van Winkle get involved in human rights issues here everything becomes a masala vadai …. :)

  99. Jaffna !!

    Interesting post and I wonder what happened to your brains – at least Sashi's is washed down the gully. You – wonder whether you had one ever…

    Do you think that the Sri Lanka army consisted of only Buddhists? How about the Singhala Buddhist Terrorist retards who were in the LTTE?? You have not heard of them ha?

    Please refer the links in the previous post – the killings that were done by the LTTE – specially the children and women of Dollar and Kent farms – can I ask you the same question – How can Hindu's who don't even eat meat kill those innocent Children?? Let me rest my case here cause I will be wasting valuable time and space… Let those who are with Brains understand this tiny post.

  100. Machiavellian Branding of Tamil Freedom Fighters as “Terrorists” Enabled Genocide of Tamils.

    Sri Lanka wi with the ‘nod and wink’ of the Western-world planned and carried out the annihilation of Tamils, telling the world that the LTTE, the terrorist organization, was different and the Tamils were different and that they would look into the genuine grievances of them.

    What a shame, this they faithfully followed what the Sri Lanka Govt. was telling the innocent and busy world while planning and executing the slaughter of the 40 000 innocent Tamils.

  101. Rajash and the rest… !

    I prefer being the Masala Wade amoung you Rotten Ala Bondas and sure that Mango would be OK with it too.

    Bottom line is, none of you retarded Apes of Peelam had the Guts to reply to any of the questions we have posted.

    We all know that you have your rotten agenda of Having an Eelam in SL. Please note that even if the Rajapakse's were ousted by the people of this country during the next general elections and if someone else comes in to power, that dream will never be realized – It never can happen – think logically even if it is with the tiniest brains you got. Even if Sri Lanka wanted, India will not allow it. I cannot waste space and time to explain it to you goons.

    Keep all jokes aside, You very well know that the LTTE killed many Tamils on many occasions and the last being those innocent who tried to escape the Human Shield – They even bombed the No Fire Zone to make the International community feel that the SLA did it, which is proven beyond doubt now that it was the LTTE who did it.

    My Question is – Even after you knowing such bad done to Tamils by the LTTE, Why on earth are you still supporting such brutality????

    I am utterly ashamed as a person who at least have a bit of Tamil blood in me that you guys are supporting some bunch of retards who actually killed so many people who runs more Tamil blood than me. Very Sad !!

  102. The Sinhala army killed without any consideration for human lives.

    Rajapaksas are Fools !!

    Now the Foolish leaders have to pay the price for their folly.

    Gothabaya Rajapaksa was not qualified or experienced to be defence secretary.

    He made the mess in Sri Lanka

    Fool rush in where angel fear to tread.

  103. Rajapakse thought that he can intimidate, threaten and bully the world leaders the same way as he was treating the Tamils in Sri Lanka!!

    The Leaders are watching every movement of this alleged war criminal regime and when time comes they will strike a big blow!

    This regime and its forces have committed crimes against humanity that no other nation on earth has committed on their minority.

    The Rajapaksa government was fooling the world like George Bush quoting terrorism while Rajapaksa was committing state terrorism in Sri Lanka

  104. Rip Van Winkle,
    How did you kill col ramesh???
    According to earlier information, Mr. Palitha Kohona had confirmed that the SLA had received Mr. Ramesh of Tamil Eelam Police, carrying a white flag, as the first person in the group that surrendered along with Mr. B. Nadesan and Mr. S. Puleedevan in the early hours of 18 May, 2009.

    In army custody http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&art

  105. This was no Libya. The scale of the crime, committed behind the shutters of frontlines that were sealed by the army of Sri Lanka, and from which independent humanitarian workers and journalists were excluded, is just beginning to leak out. Using as a justification the fraternal jingoism of the global war on terror, the government of the President, Mahinda Rajapaksa, unleashed death squads on domestic dissenters and sent gangs to attack newspapers and TV outlets.

    The government of Sri Lanka duped the UN, foreign journalists, diplomats and world leaders. Like the perpetrators of Bosnian crimes, their first line of defence remains a concoction of blanket denial, smooth assurances and indignant bluster.

    Two years after the end of the war, foreign reporters and humanitarian workers still do not have access to the alleged crime scene, the final battlefield.

    The Sri Lankan government has had ample time to destroy the confetti of evidence. Meantime, it touts its brand of the war on terror as a self-evident success.

    This is a "Srebrenica Moment" for the international community of nations, too. The UN report says that the alleged crimes of both the warring parties and subsequent cover-up by the government constitutes "an assault on the entire system of international law and security". http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/world/sri-la

    The Expert Panel’s finding that the government and Tamil Tigers committed abuses and that the government has failed to hold its forces accountable shows the need for an international investigation. Russia and China should stop blocking efforts to find justice for victims in Sri Lanka and support the panel’s recommendations.

  113. @ Aatish: Some unfortunate and very rare mistakes which were done by Tamil Freedom

    When an LTTE suicide bomber detonates herself to muder Tamil civilians, that is NOT a mistake. That's a pre-mediated, intentional act of murder.

    I'm sure that the kids who died for the LTTE and were killed by the LTTE will be so pleased to know that. I'm sure that their parents are also happy that they were able to provide this blood sacrifice of their kids, to the LTTE cause.

    So, these Tamils murdered by the LTTE were obviously unfortunate eggs that had to broken to make the Eelam omelette, no?

    Aatish, the Eelam Genius also proclaims: "The majority of the Sri Lankan population were never at any risk from LTTE bombs."

    Now, thanks to Mahinda mama and the SLA, there's absolutely ZERO risk of the anyone in the SL population dying from LTTE bombs. The only people at risk of dying prematurely are pro-LTTE groupies suffering their well-deserved heart attacks, as their efforts to gain revenge on SL fail. Again.

    @ Rajash: "The LTTE did not have any morbid fascination with dead bodies" Wrong. They often used dead bodies to spread terror.

    During the Eastern campaign (2006-7), Sgt Pathirana (on a recon mission) was captured by the LTTE, his limbs chopped off, then beheaded and later his head exhibited at the Illuppadichenai junction. Now, they’ve named a road after him.

    “…the tigers did to former Tamil National Alliance election candidate Rajan Sathiyamoorthy in Batticaloa. …. He and his brother in law were shot dead by the mainstream LTTE while they were worshipping at the shrine in their home. …The tigers dig up the body and threw it elsewhere after setting fire. It was in a half-burnt state.”

    They fought for the destruction of their own motherland and their own nation.

    If the Rajapaksa State media had created unjustified fear psychosis about being the next bomb victim.

    Why Rajapaksa's media making a huge fuss about attacks ?

    Rajapksa claptrap propaganda put the Sinhalese in to frenzy of fear that the attacks are possible at any moment… any time

  124. @Shivaraj , my dear Eealmish friend, now everyone in Sri Lanka can go about their business without living in fear of LTTE bra-bombers or stray army artillery shells. Even die-hard Eelamists. :)

    There were many valiant LTTE cadres. Even the SLA MoD praised their bravery in combat during the last battles. Remember this, after the LTTE's best forces were annihilated at Puthukkudiyiruppu?

    "This is the reason that the armed forces personnel are trained to respect the fallen enemy. We do not wish to insult Theepan, Vidusha, Durga, Gadhapi, Gopith, Nagesh, and the rest who died in the recent fighting. Indeed, they were the cream of the LTTE fighting cadre. It is a shame that they had to die for the wrong cause.

    They fought for the destruction of their own motherland and their own nation. Their deaths represent the end of the brutal terrorist outfit that devoured some 75,000 lives of Sri Lankan citizens, the lives of their own brethren. But, the mean spirited that mislead them, still desire more deaths, and continued bloodshed in this country. We dedicate this editorial to all Sri Lankans who fully realise the diverse forces that by misleading and misguiding the flower of our youth, brought death and destruction to our country, and are now determined to say – Never Again."

    Well said

    The danger from the Tamil Freedom Fighters were greatly exaggerated .

    The majority of the Sri Lankan population were never at any risk from LTTE bombs.

  126. This was no Libya. The scale of the crime, committed behind the shutters of frontlines that were sealed by the army of Sri Lanka, and from which independent humanitarian workers and journalists were excluded, is just beginning to leak out. Using as a justification the fraternal jingoism of the global war on terror, the government of the President, Mahinda Rajapaksa, unleashed death squads on domestic dissenters and sent gangs to attack newspapers and TV outlets.

    The government of Sri Lanka duped the UN, foreign journalists, diplomats and world leaders. Like the perpetrators of Bosnian crimes, their first line of defence remains a concoction of blanket denial, smooth assurances and indignant bluster.

    Two years after the end of the war, foreign reporters and humanitarian workers still do not have access to the alleged crime scene, the final battlefield.

    The Sri Lankan government has had ample time to destroy the confetti of evidence. Meantime, it touts its brand of the war on terror as a self-evident success.

    This is a “Srebrenica Moment” for the international community of nations, too. The UN report says that the alleged crimes of both the warring parties and subsequent cover-up by the government constitutes “an assault on the entire system of international law and security”.

    The Expert Panel’s finding that the government and Tamil Tigers committed abuses and that the government has failed to hold its forces accountable shows the need for an international investigation. Russia and China should stop blocking efforts to find justice for victims in Sri Lanka and support the panel’s recommendations.
    Sri Lanka: UN Chief Should Establish International Inquiry

  127. As we've mentioned to AI and its' new-found friends in the pro-LTTE dregs, this report is pure power politics and geo-politics. If you think SL will bend to the usual suspects (UK, EU etc) in agreeing to 'international investigations', your delusions appear to be more serious than I imagined.

    Clean your own houses (here's a tip — look at the lack of action over Iraq) and then come and lecture us. Until then, we remain distinctly unimpressed and under-whelmed.

    Did you really expect that threatening to impose sanctions and hold war crimes trials would somehow make the current govt kneel at your feet?

    Now, I have to run off to check on Sri Lanka's genocidal economic growth figures. And look who's in town? A very nice lady from Israel looking for non-military trade ties.

    You have no analytical abilities ??

    If any a Tamil doesn’t agree with your views he or she become a tiger !!

    Now I can see how immature you are

    Before having grandiose visions of Rajapaksa's Sri Lanka and you should have had a good hard look in the mirror and try to get rid of your glaring faults

    You have unconditional trust in the King Mahinda.

    Why ? The man is a pathological liar . His ruthless regime is chomping away freedom of speech, the economy and alienated most of Sri Lanka friends.

    In short, he is destroying Sri Lanka

  131. @ Aatish: Some unfortunate and very rare mistakes which were done by Tamil Freedom

    When an LTTE suicide bomber detonates herself to muder Tamil civilians, that is NOT a mistake. That’s a pre-mediated, intentional act of murder.

    I’m sure that the kids who died for the LTTE and were killed by the LTTE will be so pleased to know that. I’m sure that their parents are also happy that they were able to provide this blood sacrifice of their kids, to the LTTE cause.

    So, these Tamils murdered by the LTTE were obviously unfortunate eggs that had to broken to make the Eelam omelette, no?

    Aatish, the Eelam Genius also proclaims: “The majority of the Sri Lankan population were never at any risk from LTTE bombs.”

    Now, thanks to Mahinda mama and the SLA, there’s absolutely ZERO risk of the anyone in the SL population dying from LTTE bombs. The only people at risk of dying prematurely are pro-LTTE groupies suffering their well-deserved heart attacks, as their efforts to gain revenge on SL fail. Again.

    @ Rajash: “The LTTE did not have any morbid fascination with dead bodies” Wrong. They often used dead bodies to spread terror.

    During the Eastern campaign (2006-7), Sgt Pathirana (on a recon mission) was captured by the LTTE, his limbs chopped off, then beheaded and later his head exhibited at the Illuppadichenai junction. Now, they’ve named a road after him.

    “…the tigers did to former Tamil National Alliance election candidate Rajan Sathiyamoorthy in Batticaloa. …. He and his brother in law were shot dead by the mainstream LTTE while they were worshipping at the shrine in their home. …The tigers dig up the body and threw it elsewhere after setting fire. It was in a half-burnt state.”

  132. Sri Lankan Tragedy is also about an unfair world that is letting the murderers and rapists to walk on red carpets but ignoring the plight of the innocents that are languishing in torture camps and prisons.

    When America and the international community came forward to halt the war during the final phase, India gave this assurance to them. http://print.dailymirror.lk/opinion1/38967.html

    Thousands of digital pictures and video clips, many satellite images and other concrete evidences are available to prove without a shadow of doubt that Sri Lankan regime is still committing countless crimes against the Tamil community in Sri Lanka with the excuse of fighting terror.

    Two years ago, a war without witness was executed by the state against the Tamil people in the island of Sri Lanka.
    In September 2008, after ordering all United Nations personnel, non-government organisations and media out of the Vanni region, the Sri Lankan government embarked on a vicious military campaign.

    While it informed the world it was fighting the Tamil Tiger rebels and was following a ''zero civilian casualty'' policy, photographs, video footage and phone conversations with our relatives in the war zone told us a different story.
    Advertisement: Story continues below

    We watched in horror as images of injured babies, maimed pregnant women and rows of dead civilians leaked out. Hospitals were bombed. Refugee camps
    were shelled. Surrendering civilians were executed. Even the International Committee of the Red Cross was blocked from saving the injured.

    As members of the Tamil diaspora took to the streets, campaigning for the international community to act to stop the bloodshed, the world did nothing. More than 100,000 Tamils rallied around the world, yet our cries fell on the bureaucrats' deaf ears. Kevin Rudd, then Australia's prime minister, preferred ''soft diplomacy'' with Sri Lanka, in contrast to his stand on Burma, Zimbabwe and Libya.

    We slowly realised the UN was well aware of the high civilian casualties. Leaked satellite images revealed the UN knew of the Sri Lankan Air Force's targeted bombing and shelling of civilian locations.

    Following his resignation, the former UN spokesman in Sri Lanka, Gordon Weiss, revealed the civilian death toll could be up to 40,000, while "significant others have said that the figure may well be far higher". Why would the world allow civilians to be killed in such a gruesome manner?

    At the time, China and Russia prevented the war in Sri Lanka being discussed at the UN Security Council. Both countries are allies of Sri Lanka, China having invested heavily there.

    UN officials are said to have told Vijay Nambiar – whom the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, appointed as his chief of staff – that the final death toll could exceed 20,000, but Nambiar urged his staff not to "rock the boat" by criticising the Sri Lankan government.

    Witness reports later revealed senior UN officials, including Nambiar, and senior Sri Lankan officials, including the Defence Secretary (and brother of the President), Gotabaya Rajapaksa, were involved in the surrendering of Tamil Tiger combatants, who were later executed. After waiting two years for an independent inquiry into this incident, Tamil rights groups have submitted their own complaint to the International Criminal Court.

    When the war came to a bloody end on May 18, 2009, Sri Lankan government puppets were quick to continue the propaganda, claiming all was well in Sri Lanka, encouraging Australian tourists while discouraging Australia from accepting Tamil refugees.

    The reality was different. Hundreds of thousands were held in military-run internment camps, disappearances were rife, and rape and torture occurred. There was a reason the number of Tamil refugees arriving by boats in Australia had suddenly sky-rocketed.

    The unrelenting campaigning by the Tamil diaspora and human rights groups finally forced Ban to establish a panel of experts last year to assess the mounting allegations of war crimes. Sri Lanka was quick to condemn this decision and banned the panel from visiting the island.

    The panel's final report, submitted to Ban almost a fortnight ago, has at last been published. The panel has found allegations of war crimes to be credible and has admitted the UN failed to act to protect civilians, despite knowing about the high civilian casualty rate. The panel has also recommended an international independent inquiry into war crimes in Sri Lanka.

    Today tens of thousands of Tamils are missing. Up to 14,000 Tamils, including 500 children, have been held for the past two years in secret prisons; no one knows if they are alive. The Tamil homeland in the north is under military occupation and forced resettlement of Sinhalese families is taking place, changing the demography of the region.

    After Rwanda, the world said "never again". But in early 2009, what happened to the Tamils was far worse. Not only did the UN fail to act to stop the persecution of Tamil civilians – it was complicit.

    Dr Sam Pari is a spokeswoman for the Australian Tamil Congress.

  133. Asking the sinhalese to take care of tamils is exactly the same as asking nazis to take care of jews during world war 2

    The Sri Lankan defence minister who in the past has attacked media personal for writing against the government human rights violations, threatened to throw out diplomats, BBC, CNN for reporting the facts about the humanitarian crisis in Sri Lanka has now gone on camera to say that ” attacking hospitals that are in rebel area are fine and they are legitimate targets even if they full of civilians” http://vimeo.com/3071162

    Do not exaggerate !! The Sinhalese have more chances to be caught in the fatal road accident than to be harm in any way by valiant Tamil Freedom Fighters !!

    Rajapaksa’s Shameless propaganda machine was sensationalizing LTTE and wildly exaggerating their mischief

    If the Rajapaksa State media had created unjustified fear psychosis about being the next bomb victim.

    Why Rajapaksa’s media making a huge fuss about attacks ?

    Rajapksa claptrap propaganda put the Sinhalese in to frenzy of fear that the attacks are possible at any moment… any time

    The Shameless Sinhalese media repeated the “terrorist” mantra so many times everyday for so long that people are instinctively become paranoid.

  137. 100,000 missing in war's final months http://www.tamilguardian.com/article.asp?articlei
    Over 100,000 Tamil civilians remain unaccounted for after Sri Lanka’s onslaught in 2009 into the northern Vanni region, Channel 4 reported Saturday.

    Government census forms obtained by Channel 4 show 430,000 residents in Vanni in mid 2008. However internal UN documents also obtained by Channel 4 show only 290,000 people coming out of the final enclave overrun by the government’s troops and being put into its militarized internment camps.

    Only 60% of the original residents have returned to Vanni, a Channel 4 source who recently visited the still miliarised region, also said.

    Meanwhile, the UN spokesperson in Sri Lanka at the time of the government’s final onslaught, Gorden Weiss, says the death toll could be “shockingly high.”

    Early 2009, sri lanka said only 65,000 Tamils live in Vanni, & India said 70,000. Finally, SL govrnment said 300,000 Tamils in the concentrations Camps.

    Dangerous regimes in Sri Lanka that are determined to wipe out a race from the face of this earth. Torture, murder and rape against the minority Tamils, abductions, summary executions, forced colonizations of Tamil lands, extension of military bases in Tamil areas even in the absence of war and various human rights abuses, have made this country as an island of hell.

  141. 63 YEARS OF GENOCIDAL WAR ON TAMIL WOMEN HAS:
    • Disproportionately affected them in the context of sexual, physical and psychological violence
    • Inflicted untold sufferings and thousands of deaths
    • Used rape and other forms of sexual violence as a weapon to demoralize, terrorize communities and break families
    • caused the deterioration of essential health structures and has led to higher death counts of pregnant women
    • Increased cases of forced abortions and sterilization
    • Made millions of Tamils refugees, of whom 80 percent are women and children
    • Made 40,000 women war widows who are mostly impoverished and economically vulnerable (United Nations Development Fund for Women)
    • Continued amidst a culture of systemic impunity and has contributed to Sri Lanka being ranked the 3rd worst violator of women`s rights according to South Asia Human Rights Violators Index 2008

    Rape of Tamil Women: Sri Lankan Army's Weapon of War http://www.nowpublic.com/world/rape-tamil-women-s

    What did they do last two years even after killing over 50,000 in 2009?

    1. Taking of land belonging to Tamils.
    2. Annexing of sinhala areas to Tamil majority areas.
    3. Altering the names of Tamil villages.
    4. Removal of name boards of Tamil villages .
    5. Several acts which are detrimental to Tamil culture.
    6. Sinhala colonization.
    7. Increasing the presence of armed forces and effort to settle their families in the northland east.
    8. Effort to drive away the Tamils form their traditional village.
    9. Indirect effort to change the demography.
    10. The problems the resettled displaced people face.
    11. The problem the resettled persons face in the welfare centers.
    12. Appointment of sinhala senior officers in the government institution in the north and east
    13. The attack on the workers of nivitigala estate.
    14. The driving away of the Muslims settlers at kandalmadu and burning of their huts.
    15. The delay in the settlment of the people of sampur and expropriation of 1`0000 acres of land that belong to them.
    16. Not even a single Tamil speaking person was included in the list of 275 officers selected for the sir lank a administrative service.
    17. Of the hundred officers selected as surveyors only five were Tamils

    Can anyone say that all these event are not taking place?
    Is it possible in anyway to build place in the country while withholding these differences.
    Is not that government is inviting resistance by the Tamils
    Is not that government is making way for another crushing blow to the Tamils.
    Is not that government is encouraging LTTE or similar movement
    Judging by the acts can any way think that government has "learnt lessons"
    Has not government launched further repressive measure on the fabrication of "tiger terror"

  142. 100,000 missing in war's final months http://www.tamilguardian.com/article.asp?articlei
    Over 100,000 Tamil civilians remain unaccounted for after Sri Lanka’s onslaught in 2009 into the northern Vanni region, Channel 4 reported Saturday.

    Government census forms obtained by Channel 4 show 430,000 residents in Vanni in mid 2008. However internal UN documents also obtained by Channel 4 show only 290,000 people coming out of the final enclave overrun by the government’s troops and being put into its militarized internment camps.

    Only 60% of the original residents have returned to Vanni, a Channel 4 source who recently visited the still miliarised region, also said.

    Meanwhile, the UN spokesperson in Sri Lanka at the time of the government’s final onslaught, Gorden Weiss, says the death toll could be “shockingly high.”

    Early 2009, sri lanka said only 65,000 Tamils live in Vanni, & India said 70,000. Finally, SL govrnment said 300,000 Tamils in the concentrations Camps.

    Dangerous regimes in Sri Lanka that are determined to wipe out a race from the face of this earth. Torture, murder and rape against the minority Tamils, abductions, summary executions, forced colonizations of Tamil lands, extension of military bases in Tamil areas even in the absence of war and various human rights abuses, have made this country as an island of hell.

    16. Not even a single Tamil speaking person was included in the list of 275 officers selected for the sir lank a administrative service.
    17. Of the hundred officers selected as surveyors only five were Tamils

    Can anyone say that all these event are not taking place?
    Is it possible in anyway to build place in the country while withholding these differences.
    Is not that government is inviting resistance by the Tamils
    Is not that government is making way for another crushing blow to the Tamils.
    Is not that government is encouraging LTTE or similar movement
    Judging by the acts can any way think that government has "learnt lessons"

  146. As we’ve mentioned to AI and its’ new-found friends in the pro-LTTE dregs, this report is pure power politics and geo-politics. If you think SL will bend to the usual suspects (UK, EU etc) in agreeing to ‘international investigations’, your delusions appear to be more serious than I imagined.

    Clean your own houses (here’s a tip — look at the lack of action over Iraq) and then come and lecture us. Until then, we remain distinctly unimpressed and under-whelmed.

    Did you really expect that threatening to impose sanctions and hold war crimes trials would somehow make the current govt kneel at your feet?

    Now, I have to run off to check on Sri Lanka’s genocidal economic growth figures. And look who’s in town? A very nice lady from Israel looking for non-military trade ties.

  148. Cricket match fixing in Sri Lanka

    Former Sri Lanka captain Hashan Tillakaratne has come out with startling revelations , saying that match-fixing was common in Sri Lanka
    http://www.hindustantimes.com/Tillakaratne-allege

    Sri Lanka President said that there were “Zero Civilians “in brutal the Sri Lanka War but UN report estimate that there were 40000 innocent Hindus were killed by indiscriminate Sri Lanka Government Shelling

    The Sri Lanka President lied !!!

    So lying, cheating and match fixing is a norm in morally bankrupt Sri Lanka

  149. Sri Lankan Tragedy is also about an unfair world that is letting the murderers and rapists to walk on red carpets but ignoring the plight of the innocents that are languishing in torture camps and prisons.

    When America and the international community came forward to halt the war during the final phase, India gave this assurance to them.
    http://print.dailymirror.lk/opinion1/38967.html

    Thousands of digital pictures and video clips, many satellite images and other concrete evidences are available to prove without a shadow of doubt that Sri Lankan regime is still committing countless crimes against the Tamil community in Sri Lanka with the excuse of fighting terror.

    Two years ago, a war without witness was executed by the state against the Tamil people in the island of Sri Lanka.
    In September 2008, after ordering all United Nations personnel, non-government organisations and media out of the Vanni region, the Sri Lankan government embarked on a vicious military campaign.

    While it informed the world it was fighting the Tamil Tiger rebels and was following a ”zero civilian casualty” policy, photographs, video footage and phone conversations with our relatives in the war zone told us a different story.
    Advertisement: Story continues below

    We watched in horror as images of injured babies, maimed pregnant women and rows of dead civilians leaked out. Hospitals were bombed. Refugee camps
    were shelled. Surrendering civilians were executed. Even the International Committee of the Red Cross was blocked from saving the injured.

    As members of the Tamil diaspora took to the streets, campaigning for the international community to act to stop the bloodshed, the world did nothing. More than 100,000 Tamils rallied around the world, yet our cries fell on the bureaucrats’ deaf ears. Kevin Rudd, then Australia’s prime minister, preferred ”soft diplomacy” with Sri Lanka, in contrast to his stand on Burma, Zimbabwe and Libya.

    We slowly realised the UN was well aware of the high civilian casualties. Leaked satellite images revealed the UN knew of the Sri Lankan Air Force’s targeted bombing and shelling of civilian locations.

    Following his resignation, the former UN spokesman in Sri Lanka, Gordon Weiss, revealed the civilian death toll could be up to 40,000, while “significant others have said that the figure may well be far higher”. Why would the world allow civilians to be killed in such a gruesome manner?

    At the time, China and Russia prevented the war in Sri Lanka being discussed at the UN Security Council. Both countries are allies of Sri Lanka, China having invested heavily there.

    UN officials are said to have told Vijay Nambiar – whom the UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon, appointed as his chief of staff – that the final death toll could exceed 20,000, but Nambiar urged his staff not to “rock the boat” by criticising the Sri Lankan government.

    Witness reports later revealed senior UN officials, including Nambiar, and senior Sri Lankan officials, including the Defence Secretary (and brother of the President), Gotabaya Rajapaksa, were involved in the surrendering of Tamil Tiger combatants, who were later executed. After waiting two years for an independent inquiry into this incident, Tamil rights groups have submitted their own complaint to the International Criminal Court.

    When the war came to a bloody end on May 18, 2009, Sri Lankan government puppets were quick to continue the propaganda, claiming all was well in Sri Lanka, encouraging Australian tourists while discouraging Australia from accepting Tamil refugees.

    The reality was different. Hundreds of thousands were held in military-run internment camps, disappearances were rife, and rape and torture occurred. There was a reason the number of Tamil refugees arriving by boats in Australia had suddenly sky-rocketed.

    The unrelenting campaigning by the Tamil diaspora and human rights groups finally forced Ban to establish a panel of experts last year to assess the mounting allegations of war crimes. Sri Lanka was quick to condemn this decision and banned the panel from visiting the island.

    The panel’s final report, submitted to Ban almost a fortnight ago, has at last been published. The panel has found allegations of war crimes to be credible and has admitted the UN failed to act to protect civilians, despite knowing about the high civilian casualty rate. The panel has also recommended an international independent inquiry into war crimes in Sri Lanka.

    Today tens of thousands of Tamils are missing. Up to 14,000 Tamils, including 500 children, have been held for the past two years in secret prisons; no one knows if they are alive. The Tamil homeland in the north is under military occupation and forced resettlement of Sinhalese families is taking place, changing the demography of the region.

    After Rwanda, the world said “never again”. But in early 2009, what happened to the Tamils was far worse. Not only did the UN fail to act to stop the persecution of Tamil civilians – it was complicit.

    Dr Sam Pari is a spokeswoman for the Australian Tamil Congress.

    There also is a difference in the words used.
    1. Accident – meaning unintentional
    2. Killings – meaning intentional

    So, now you want to compare your Banana's and Coconuts to see how the LTTE killings could be better and justified than those who are killed on the road…

    How did you kill col ramesh???
    According to earlier information, Mr. Palitha Kohona had confirmed that the SLA had received Mr. Ramesh of Tamil Eelam Police, carrying a white flag

    1. I am not with the forces and I did not kill Ramesh or have not killed any living thing other than Moquitos, a few Ants (Mistakenly).
    2. I don't know Palith K personally,nor about such comment made by him – please do not refer us to tamilnet, because it's a rat's hole full of lies. Also, I don't think that Palitha K is so stupid to make such comment – i am sure he does not eat Banana's and fruits only.
    3. As per Hon. S. Kanagaratnam, it was the retarded Prabha who wanted to kill all those who wanted to cross over to army control area
    http://www.asiantribune.com/news/2011/04/19/final

    So, I doubt anything else happened – if that was the case, Daya and George Masters also should have been killed.

    4. Why did not the SLA kill Prabha's Dad and Mom?? The mother died in a government hospital recently and there were basket's and baskets of flowers, food and clothing near her bed – guess who gifted them??? Singhalees who were traveling to Jaffna saying that it was not her faulth the son was a retard. You still wish to scold the Singhalees of the country ??

    See, we give a load of evidence from credible sources when we post here – you have nothing like that to say or do.

    What you guys say in all above posts and posts before in summary are

    1. Rajapakse is a liar
    2. Sri Lanka genocide state – kill all tamils
    3. 40,000 to 200,000 (still no proper figure) people were brutally killed by SLA during war
    4. SLA is trying to capture all lands in North
    5. LTTE are saints and their killings could be justified (the new addition)

    See any of your posts above if I am lying – this is all you say in various forms and plenty of words with copy paste articles – nothing else….

    So Whom do you want me to believe ?? (Specially after one of your fellow comrads said that killing of tamils of LTTE could be justified)

  154. Asking the sinhalese to take care of tamils is exactly the same as asking nazis to take care of jews during world war 2

    The Sri Lankan defence minister who in the past has attacked media personal for writing against the government human rights violations, threatened to throw out diplomats, BBC, CNN for reporting the facts about the humanitarian crisis in Sri Lanka has now gone on camera to say that ” attacking hospitals that are in rebel area are fine and they are legitimate targets even if they full of civilians”

    Say that to my Neighbour who lost her Husband and almost her life (3 months in ICU) for the Dehiwela Train Blast in 1996. She is still struggeling with her life and commended for the stuggle she made to bring up her son (who is now a young man)

    Let me re-tinkle your memories.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dehiwala_train_bombi

    Be sad that I got down from Wellawatte station – the one before that.

    I also experienced the following, but, am lucky to be alive today to prove that it is you who are lying.

    1. Ceylinco Bomb – worked there at that time.
    2. 2 bombs in Slave Island (Army HQ – Got down from the train at SI station)
    3. Eye Hospital Junction Bomb – had changed jobs and had a car – just drove past when I heard the noise.
    4. Shooting at Lake House – Can't remember the year, but, was out after clubbing at Blue Elephant that night.

    So, me being in Colombo where the largest population is in, managed to escape 4 close calls. There are others who have had more experiences and some ofcourse less.

    BUT !! for you to say that SL population was never at any risk – dude, Close your rectum or people will actually get to know that you talk from it and will take you to a lab for testing purposes… !!

    Get a life you retard !

  156. The Human rights of Retards !

    Interesting Facts from HR report in 1994 – Amnesty – what action did you take with regard to these allegations – where was the UN then and where were the Pannels to carryout investigations ??

    In a communication dated 5 September 1994, the Special Rapporteur sent the following observations to the Government of Sri Lanka:

    "According to the information received, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have expelled all the Muslims from the areas in the north of the country under their control. They are also reported to have expropriated all the property of the Muslims and to have threatened them with death if they try to return.
    LTTE is also said to have severely restricted the freedom of movement of Tamils living in the areas under their control, to have demanded that any person wishing to travel outside those areas pay an
    'exit tax' and leave the whole of his or her property in escrow. Furthermore, in order to ensure that such persons return, often only one person per family is authorized to travel.

    The following are some of the practices adopted by LTTE with regard to the movement of persons:
    (a) A bond must be signed by a surety if a person wishes to leave the Jaffna peninsula.
    (b) At least one inmate of the house should always remain at home.
    (c) The house and property should be handed over to LTTE if all inmates seek to leave the area.
    (d) A penalty of Rs 100,000 should be paid to the LTTE in respect of each person in the family, if the entire family seeks to leave the peninsula for good. In addition, the house and property belonging to the family will also be confiscated.
    A levy of Rs 100 is reported to be charged by LTTE to issue a normal pass to a person leaving the Jaffna peninsula for a short period. Rs 500 is levied for an emergency pass.

    When your retarded Freedom fighters killed Tamils it's a reare Mistake and when they get caught in cross fire once during a battle to save the Tamils, the SLAshould be taken to HR courts??

    Dude – rare mistakes are that one would do once or twice and not repeat. LTTE retards killed Alfred Duraiappa in 1975 and their last kill was also a tamil during the final stages of the war and his/her name is that we never wold know of as tis person would have tried to escape the Human Shield. Common, you seriously want me to believe that the LTTE stood for Tamils??

    Indeed it is unfortuante that you think I am comparing Bana's to coconut, but, I could not expect more from a bunch of unevolved apes than to talk of some fruits that grow on trees.

    Very sorry to see you feel that thousands of Tamils killed by LTTE is take as Unfortunate and (hilariously) rare mistakes… !!

  158. 100,000 missing in war’s final months
    http://www.tamilguardian.com/article.asp?articleid=3112
    Over 100,000 Tamil civilians remain unaccounted for after Sri Lanka’s onslaught in 2009 into the northern Vanni region, Channel 4 reported Saturday.

    Government census forms obtained by Channel 4 show 430,000 residents in Vanni in mid 2008. However internal UN documents also obtained by Channel 4 show only 290,000 people coming out of the final enclave overrun by the government’s troops and being put into its militarized internment camps.

    Only 60% of the original residents have returned to Vanni, a Channel 4 source who recently visited the still miliarised region, also said.

    Meanwhile, the UN spokesperson in Sri Lanka at the time of the government’s final onslaught, Gorden Weiss, says the death toll could be “shockingly high.”

    Early 2009, sri lanka said only 65,000 Tamils live in Vanni, & India said 70,000. Finally, SL govrnment said 300,000 Tamils in the concentrations Camps.

    Dangerous regimes in Sri Lanka that are determined to wipe out a race from the face of this earth. Torture, murder and rape against the minority Tamils, abductions, summary executions, forced colonizations of Tamil lands, extension of military bases in Tamil areas even in the absence of war and various human rights abuses, have made this country as an island of hell.

    Do not exaggerate !! The Sinhalese have more chances to be caught in the fatal road accident than to be harm in any way by valiant Tamil Freedom Fighters !!

    Interesting Point !!
    Please refer the below link to see the number of road accidents that Happened in SL over the past 30 years.
    http://www.iatss.or.jp/pdf/research/30/30-1-12.pd

    Do you still think that LTTE Killed less??????

    I am surprised by the fact of you trying to justify the killings done by LTTE.

    There also is a difference in the words used.
    1. Accident – meaning unintentional
    2. Killings – meaning intentional

    So, now you want to compare your Banana's and Coconuts to see how the LTTE killings could be better and justified than those who are killed on the road…

    WORLD COMMUNITY – PLEASE TAKE A NOTE OF THESE COMMENTS

    How did you kill col ramesh???
    According to earlier information, Mr. Palitha Kohona had confirmed that the SLA had received Mr. Ramesh of Tamil Eelam Police, carrying a white flag

    1. I am not with the forces and I did not kill Ramesh or have not killed any living thing other than Moquitos, a few Ants (Mistakenly).
    2. I don't know Palith K personally,nor about such comment made by him – please do not refer us to tamilnet, because it's a rat's hole full of lies. Also, I don't think that Palitha K is so stupid to make such comment – i am sure he does not eat Banana's and fruits only.
    3. As per Hon. S. Kanagaratnam, it was the retarded Prabha who wanted to kill all those who wanted to cross over to army control area
    http://www.asiantribune.com/news/2011/04/19/final

    So, I doubt anything else happened – if that was the case, Daya and George Masters also should have been killed.

    4. Why did not the SLA kill Prabha's Dad and Mom?? The mother died in a government hospital recently and there were basket's and baskets of flowers, food and clothing near her bed – guess who gifted them??? Singhalees who were traveling to Jaffna saying that it was not her faulth the son was a retard. You still wish to scold the Singhalees of the country ??

    See, we give a load of evidence from credible sources when we post here – you have nothing like that to say or do.

    What you guys say in all above posts and posts before in summary are

    1. Rajapakse is a liar
    2. Sri Lanka genocide state – kill all tamils
    3. 40,000 to 200,000 (still no proper figure) people were brutally killed by SLA during war
    4. SLA is trying to capture all lands in North
    5. LTTE are saints and their killings could be justified (the new addition)

    See any of your posts above if I am lying – this is all you say in various forms and plenty of words with copy paste articles – nothing else….

    So Whom do you want me to believe ?? (Specially after one of your fellow comrads said that killing of tamils of LTTE could be justified)

  163. 63 YEARS OF GENOCIDAL WAR ON TAMIL WOMEN HAS:
    • Disproportionately affected them in the context of sexual, physical and psychological violence
    • Inflicted untold sufferings and thousands of deaths
    • Used rape and other forms of sexual violence as a weapon to demoralize, terrorize communities and break families
    • caused the deterioration of essential health structures and has led to higher death counts of pregnant women
    • Increased cases of forced abortions and sterilization
    • Made millions of Tamils refugees, of whom 80 percent are women and children
    • Made 40,000 women war widows who are mostly impoverished and economically vulnerable (United Nations Development Fund for Women)
    • Continued amidst a culture of systemic impunity and has contributed to Sri Lanka being ranked the 3rd worst violator of women`s rights according to South Asia Human Rights Violators Index 2008

    Rape of Tamil Women: Sri Lankan Army’s Weapon of War
    http://www.nowpublic.com/world/rape-tamil-women-sri-lankan-armys-weapon-war

    What did they do last two years even after killing over 50,000 in 2009?

    1. Taking of land belonging to Tamils.
    2. Annexing of sinhala areas to Tamil majority areas.
    3. Altering the names of Tamil villages.
    4. Removal of name boards of Tamil villages .
    5. Several acts which are detrimental to Tamil culture.
    6. Sinhala colonization.
    7. Increasing the presence of armed forces and effort to settle their families in the northland east.
    8. Effort to drive away the Tamils form their traditional village.
    9. Indirect effort to change the demography.
    10. The problems the resettled displaced people face.
    11. The problem the resettled persons face in the welfare centers.
    12. Appointment of sinhala senior officers in the government institution in the north and east
    13. The attack on the workers of nivitigala estate.
    14. The driving away of the Muslims settlers at kandalmadu and burning of their huts.
    15. The delay in the settlment of the people of sampur and expropriation of 1`0000 acres of land that belong to them.
    16. Not even a single Tamil speaking person was included in the list of 275 officers selected for the sir lank a administrative service.
    17. Of the hundred officers selected as surveyors only five were Tamils

    Can anyone say that all these event are not taking place?
    Is it possible in anyway to build place in the country while withholding these differences.
    Is not that government is inviting resistance by the Tamils
    Is not that government is making way for another crushing blow to the Tamils.
    Is not that government is encouraging LTTE or similar movement
    Judging by the acts can any way think that government has “learnt lessons”
    Has not government launched further repressive measure on the fabrication of “tiger terror”

    Sri Lanka appointed many commissions called the Presidential Commissions of Inquiry into Involuntary Removals and Disappearances of Persons, sofar no one convicted, it is an eyewash. Many people reported missing in Sri Lanka have never been located and are presumed dead.

    successive governments have turned the ‘Tamil question’ into a political football, vying with one anotherto gain the votes of the Sinhalese majority. Racism is now becoming institutionalised at every level. A recent survey by the Movement for Racial Justice and Equality showed that Sinhala schoolbooks stereotype the Tamils and provided children with only a partial, Sinhalese history of the country. The outbreaks of communal violence against Tamils are often incited by politicians cashing in on Sinhalese fears, suggesting that the Tamils are about to swamp the country and annihilate the Sinhalese Buddhist state forever.

    1. Ceylinco Bomb – worked there at that time.
    2. 2 bombs in Slave Island (Army HQ – Got down from the train at SI station)
    3. Eye Hospital Junction Bomb – had changed jobs and had a car – just drove past when I heard the noise.
    4. Shooting at Lake House – Can't remember the year, but, was out after clubbing at Blue Elephant that night.

    So, me being in Colombo where the largest population is in, managed to escape 4 close calls. There are others who have had more experiences and some ofcourse less.

    BUT !! for you to say that SL population was never at any risk – dude, Close your rectum or people will actually get to know that you talk from it and will take you to a lab for testing purposes… !!

    On of your posts said,
    Asking the sinhalese to take care of tamils is exactly the same as asking nazis to take care of jews during world war 2

    I never knew that the Jews and the Nazis had that good relationships.
    I have never heard of Nazi's giving food and clothing + accomodation to any Jew
    I had never heard of jews and Nazi's working in the same organization
    I have never heard of Jews being the CEO of a company and Nazi's working for such company.
    I have not heard of a Nazi marrying a Jew
    I also have not heard of Nazi's and Jews Partying together
    I don't know any Jew who has so many Nazi freinds in thei facebook friends list
    I am not sure whether Nazi's and Jews go to the same Temple / Kovil or Church and sit side by side during prayers
    I also don't know whether Nazi's and Jews got together to demolish Terrorism from Either Germany or Israel.

    Please do educate me on such activity machan. Great help – my knowladge on world history is so rubbish.

  167. The Human rights of Retards !

    Interesting Facts from HR report in 1994 – Amnesty – what action did you take with regard to these allegations – where was the UN then and where were the Pannels to carryout investigations ??

    In a communication dated 5 September 1994, the Special Rapporteur sent the following observations to the Government of Sri Lanka:

    "According to the information received, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have expelled all the Muslims from the areas in the north of the country under their control. They are also reported to have expropriated all the property of the Muslims and to have threatened them with death if they try to return.
    LTTE is also said to have severely restricted the freedom of movement of Tamils living in the areas under their control, to have demanded that any person wishing to travel outside those areas pay an
    'exit tax' and leave the whole of his or her property in escrow. Furthermore, in order to ensure that such persons return, often only one person per family is authorized to travel.

    The following are some of the practices adopted by LTTE with regard to the movement of persons:
    (a) A bond must be signed by a surety if a person wishes to leave the Jaffna peninsula.
    (b) At least one inmate of the house should always remain at home.
    (c) The house and property should be handed over to LTTE if all inmates seek to leave the area.
    (d) A penalty of Rs 100,000 should be paid to the LTTE in respect of each person in the family, if the entire family seeks to leave the peninsula for good. In addition, the house and property belonging to the family will also be confiscated.
    A levy of Rs 100 is reported to be charged by LTTE to issue a normal pass to a person leaving the Jaffna peninsula for a short period. Rs 500 is levied for an emergency pass.

    Media rights groups protest blockage of pro-opposition news website, reporter's arrest in Sri Lanka

    International media rights groups are calling on Sri Lankan authorities to release a journalist arrested over an incorrect news report and to unblock his company's website.

    The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists said Thursday's court order to detain the reporter and block pro-opposition news website LankaeNews was just the latest attempt by authorities to "silence an independent news outlet."

  171. The UN report is a moral victory for the truth for the first time in SL.

    The victory is irreversible and will lead o justice through Truth and reconciliation and frndng peace through the establishment of two states in the island.

    The Sinhalese will learn and understand that inherently they can only be criminal to Tamils.

    And the world at large will realise that the Tamls can never ever live peacefully with the Tamils with mutual trust.

    Even after all the credible and concrete evidence before the GOSL they do not want to face the truth but say it as “flawed”, “illegal” “baseless” and so on.

    They are cowards unable to face the truth.

    This is disgraceful and dangerous for SL.

    Whatever the GOSL says the UN will move forward and punish the offenders, not the innocent Sinhala masses who were lied, cheated and tricked all the way through. Even now.

    This is the problem with you Eelamtards. Constant and unrelenting lies :) Where have Rip or I ever, celebrated anyone's death (except for Fatty Prabha)?

    Explain please, if your brains can do it, why the LTTE used Tamil civilians as human shields. I know its a difficult question, but at least try!

    Also, only 40,000 civilians? Earlier some other Eelamoron mentioned a figure of 50,000 and also 100,000. Why not 4,000,000 or 40?

    When your retarded Freedom fighters killed Tamils it’s a reare Mistake and when they get caught in cross fire once during a battle to save the Tamils, the SLAshould be taken to HR courts??

    Dude – rare mistakes are that one would do once or twice and not repeat. LTTE retards killed Alfred Duraiappa in 1975 and their last kill was also a tamil during the final stages of the war and his/her name is that we never wold know of as tis person would have tried to escape the Human Shield. Common, you seriously want me to believe that the LTTE stood for Tamils??

    Indeed it is unfortuante that you think I am comparing Bana’s to coconut, but, I could not expect more from a bunch of unevolved apes than to talk of some fruits that grow on trees.

  181. Sri Lankan Catholic Bishop said that 150 000 Tamils from Vanni are missing. 40 000 were butchered by the Sri Lanka Army in the last days. I’m positive that Bloodthirsty Sinhalese soldiers eagerly target practiced on Tamil babies from Jaffna, Mannar, Trinco, Batti and other areas. So we can safely add another 100 000 . Rajapaksa is a butcher of the Tamil people, who killed 300 000 innocent women and children . Rajapaksa is the worst Mass Murderer !! He killed the most people in Sri Lanka

    Hi Machan – Long time No see !!
    Small suggestion – just copy and paste the links – we will use the links to check the article – copying and pasting is a tedious task + wast of space neda?

    On of your posts said,
    Asking the sinhalese to take care of tamils is exactly the same as asking nazis to take care of jews during world war 2

    I never knew that the Jews and the Nazis had that good relationships.
    I have never heard of Nazi’s giving food and clothing + accomodation to any Jew
    I had never heard of jews and Nazi’s working in the same organization
    I have never heard of Jews being the CEO of a company and Nazi’s working for such company.
    I have not heard of a Nazi marrying a Jew
    I also have not heard of Nazi’s and Jews Partying together
    I don’t know any Jew who has so many Nazi freinds in thei facebook friends list
    I am not sure whether Nazi’s and Jews go to the same Temple / Kovil or Church and sit side by side during prayers
    I also don’t know whether Nazi’s and Jews got together to demolish Terrorism from Either Germany or Israel.

    Please do educate me on such activity machan. Great help – my knowladge on world history is so rubbish.

  185. The Human rights of Retards !

    Interesting Facts from HR report in 1994 – Amnesty – what action did you take with regard to these allegations – where was the UN then and where were the Pannels to carryout investigations ??

    In a communication dated 5 September 1994, the Special Rapporteur sent the following observations to the Government of Sri Lanka:

    “According to the information received, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) have expelled all the Muslims from the areas in the north of the country under their control. They are also reported to have expropriated all the property of the Muslims and to have threatened them with death if they try to return.
    LTTE is also said to have severely restricted the freedom of movement of Tamils living in the areas under their control, to have demanded that any person wishing to travel outside those areas pay an
    ‘exit tax’ and leave the whole of his or her property in escrow. Furthermore, in order to ensure that such persons return, often only one person per family is authorized to travel.

    The following are some of the practices adopted by LTTE with regard to the movement of persons:
    (a) A bond must be signed by a surety if a person wishes to leave the Jaffna peninsula.
    (b) At least one inmate of the house should always remain at home.
    (c) The house and property should be handed over to LTTE if all inmates seek to leave the area.
    (d) A penalty of Rs 100,000 should be paid to the LTTE in respect of each person in the family, if the entire family seeks to leave the peninsula for good. In addition, the house and property belonging to the family will also be confiscated.
    A levy of Rs 100 is reported to be charged by LTTE to issue a normal pass to a person leaving the Jaffna peninsula for a short period. Rs 500 is levied for an emergency pass.

    You are constantly celebrate the slaughter of 40 000 innocent Tamil civilians

    1. I do not believe that there were 40,000 civilians killed, hence, no reason to celebrate a kill of 40,000 – also pls. discuss with your friends and arrive at a single figure that you could talk of – one said 200,000 and as per your theory, I should celebrate more if so.

    2. I have always said that even the LTTE carders who died at the battle were innocent Children and young ones who could have done better to the country and the people with a Working tool than a Gun. I call retards only to the LTTE chief bras and those like you have the same mentality – i.e. to Kill Any Tamil who are against you – I know for a fact that you will kill me if you met me, but, what's the bet that I will have a nice long chat with you over a coffee if I met you !!

    3. Prove – copy a single statement that I put down in any of the previous blogs even that made anyone think that I have celebrated the death of any innocent human – I will reveal my self to you and you can come and shoot me !!

    1. When mahinda and his thugs did not and do not allow independent investigations into the ethnic cleansing of Tamils committed by them, no one other than the government themselves know the exact number of innocent Tamils who have been killed. The government however, does not release this information as it's stand is that not a single innocent Tamil was and is being harmed in Sri Lanka, despite the overwhelming evidence (which includes eye witness accounts, video and photographic evidence, etc). But as per government statistics, we can say that a minimum of 146,679 innocent Tamils were killed by the government forces (http://www.thesundayleader.lk/2011/01/23/it’s-“lesson-learnt”-—-146000-equal-“naught”-—-equals-“reconciliation”/), and this is in the Vanni alone.

    Taking into account the people I myself know who've lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had any ties to the LTTE), I can say without a hint of doubt that the number is well over 146,679. When you add to that the innocent Tamils being killed everyday AFTER the war ended, the number increases even more.

    The UN report is a moral victory for the truth for the first time in SL.
    Not necessarily – may be for you as you were similar to those who would cling on to a straw when getting washed down the stream !!

    The victory is irreversible
    The only victory that's irreversible is the death of Retarded LTTE Leader – which we clearly celebrate… Not the innocent..

    2 states in the Island – dream on – even if the UN punishes Rajapakse's there will be no peelam as India will be the first to oppose same.

    And the world at large will realise that the Tamls can never ever live peacefully with the Tamils with mutual trust.

    The above sentence of yours is a GEM !!
    I totally Agree – Tamils will have a huge issue in trusting even a fellow Tamil after your Retarded Masters killed So Many Tamils – I have posted the list of promonant Tamils that were killed by the LTTE many a times before – Google and You will know.

    They are cowards unable to face the truth.
    The only people I see who cannot face the truth are retards like you – Get over it – Prabha is dead !! He was a coward who used the very same people he told he would stand for as a human shield to sabe him self – the fat Retard was a coward – accept the truth – Good he is Dead and Gone – accept it !!

    Whatever the GOSL says the UN will move forward and punish the offenders,

    It is the very mass you are trying to be sympathetic to who are standing for Rajapakse's (Unfortunately) It was your retard who actually got Rajapakse in to power – If he had allowed the Jaffna people to vote in 2006, Ranil would have been the president and we would not have this economic difficulties. So, there again, it was you retards who screwed it for all Sri Lankans by getting Rajapakse in to power.

    Also dream on about UN punishing SL – The Baboon with the report himself has said that he cannot do anything without the approval of the rest of the member states or the security council – Bad News – Security council contains Russia and China with LOADS of POWER !!

  193. The UN report is a moral victory for the truth for the first time in SL.

    The victory is irreversible and will lead o justice through Truth and reconciliation and frndng peace through the establishment of two states in the island.

    The Sinhalese will learn and understand that inherently they can only be criminal to Tamils.

    And the world at large will realise that the Tamls can never ever live peacefully with the Tamils with mutual trust.

    Even after all the credible and concrete evidence before the GOSL they do not want to face the truth but say it as “flawed”, “illegal” “baseless” and so on.

    They are cowards unable to face the truth.

    This is disgraceful and dangerous for SL.

  202. Fiction and Fact

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government repeatedly said heavy weapons were not used in the safe-zone.

    Fact: Evidence from the UN clearly shows that the Sri-Lankan military used heavy weapons in the safe-zone.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that there were less than 100,000 civilians in the war-zone. It also criticized the UN and aid agencies for overstating the number of civilians in the war-zone.

    Fact: More than 250,000 civilians escaped from the war-zone. Another 100,000 are still unaccounted for.

    “The Sri Lankan government has consistently curtailed international assistance and monitoring based on assertions that it has the situation in hand. But a quick look at their own statements shows a pattern of MISREPRESENTING the FACTS. That is why it is so important to ensure that there are independent, international monitors who can provide an accurate picture of the situation on the ground.” Sam Zarifi, Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific director.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that NO civilian was killed by the military.

    Fact: Tens of thousands of civilians died in the final phase of Sri Lanka's civil war – most of them killed in shelling by government forces, a UN panel says.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that it did not bomb hospitals in the war zone.

    Fact: The UN panel found credible allegations of serious violations committed by the Sri-Lankan government including:

    * Killing of civilians through widespread shelling

    * Shelling of hospitals

    * Human rights violations against civilians, media personnel and government critics.

    The Sri-Lankan government has refused to allow access to international media organisations and independent observers to the North of the country. It is still denying free access. It should be clear to anyone that the reason for this is simple: The government does not want anyone to find what actually happened there.

    The International Community should stop listening to the nonsense from the regime in Colombo. It is time to ACT and to bring all the WAR CRIMINALS to book.

    1. Please read the first point in the comment you replied to again and go through the evidence provided again.

    Government statistics = statistics obtained from the Vanni district office.

    Lasantha is not related to the article in any way. In fact, I believe he was killed by mahinda's thugs at the time the article was written. Rayappu Joseph is who speaks out in the article.

    As for the bodies, do you really think that it's difficult to dispose of them when no independent investigations are allowed? Government forces have in the past been very successful in burying the bodies of innocents they killed in mass graves (for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemmani_mass_graves…. Now that there is no democracy whatsoever in Sri Lanka, hiding bodies is a simple task.

    Like I said in my previous comment, while the LTTE did commit war crimes, as evidence shows, the government forces have killed more innocents than the LTTE has during their entire existence.

    There's overwhelming evidence to support this, which includes eye witness accounts, photographic and video evidence.

    Besides, I myself know many people who've lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had ties to the LTTE), so I know for a fact that the government forces did kill innocent Tamils intentionally.

    S. Kanagaratnam is no longer a government detainee – If you say so, that means you have not read the article properly.

    So, now you talk about Mr. Rajasingham who is a Tamil and who apparently owns the Asian Tribune. In the article you posted it self you say that Mr. Rajasingham – A Tamil – was under threat from the LTTE !!

    So you Idiot – I ask again – How can you call LTTE an organization that stood for Tamils ???? Now we see another evidence of a Tamil Fleeing fearing LTTE.

    If I am not mistaken, I remember your fellow copy paste blogger ROHAN pasting many articles from Asian Tribune to discredit the GOSL. So, I wonder how Asian tribune was unbiased and good at that point and had suddenly become dubious because they published Kanagaratnam's statements.

    Is Tamilnet the only credible information source for you????? My deepest sympathies if so..

    Explain please, if your brains can do it, why the LTTE used Tamil civilians as human shields. I know its a difficult question, but at least try!

    Also, only 40,000 civilians? Earlier some other Eelamoron mentioned a figure of 50,000 and also 100,000. Why not 4,000,000 or 40?

    There were UN (along with Red Cross) aid workers who were present during the war. Some of these aid workers were attacked by the government forces as well: http://www.channel4.com/news/sri-lanka-war-crimes

    The UN says that the government forces killed ATLEAST 40,000 innocents, not 6,500. But I know for a fact that the number is in the hundreds of thousands.

    UN and Red Cross aid workers themselves say that government forces shelled at the hospitals they were working at (yes, they're referring to the makeshift hospitals in tents and the like). Government forces also fired at a Red Cross aid ship.

    No medical supplies reached the innocents injured. The government forces blocked medical supplies (the UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working during the conflict attest to this) from reaching the innocents.

    1. Please give us a link to the government web site that says that they accept that they killed 146,679 civilians.. (First of all, where are the bodies?)
    With all due respect to a great journalist in Lasantha, his issue was that he wrote stuff against the government due to political reasons and wrote without facts hiding behind the immunity provided to journalists. Def. was unfortunate and the GOSL should be held responsible for his death by all means. Let's fight for him together if you wish.

    The fact is that Lasantha nor any of his fellow editors didn't have a clue of what happened there either. I don't agree with the GOSL when they say that there were zero casualties because that is bloody absurd and any donkey would know that it never could happen. The very mistake the Rajapakse's did was to say that there were 0 casualties. Obviously you cannot win a war without a few civilians being killed, and on this occasion, it is Retarded Prabha who should be held responsible for making a human shield out of the innocent and not the government.

    I cannot see a point number 2 so let me go to your point number 3.

    Amnesty or anybody could say anything, but, the fact is that if there were external parties in the war zone, the war would have gone on forever – who was going to guaranty their safety ?? For all you know, the retarded Prabha would have held the Amnesty guys Hostage too.

    Guys – also don't forget that Amnesty have clearly mentioned that the retards of LTTE did kill Tamils – so if you are denying it, you are denying an Amnesty International report yourselves

    Fact: Bull Shit – GOSL are Mad to say so – there def. were civilian deaths and deaths cause by the LTTE retards to the civilians too. I am sorry I cannot find the video where a Pregnant Suicide Bomber blows herself off at an army receiving point – where those who escaped LTTE were received by the Army. So, Def. the LTTE killed civilians and I am pretty sure that the government firing killed many too. UN says 6,500. I don't know any other report that says else-wise from any credible source.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that it did not bomb hospitals in the war zone.

    Fact: Indeed they did…. The fact was that they were no longer Hospitals – they were LTTE gun points – the Hospitals had already shifted to houses or tents and the wounded were LTTE fighters and not innocent civilians. Also mind that the medicine used were all Free Supplies from the Government of Sri Lanka – that's how the GOSL treated the enemy – Does USA drop Medicine to Taliban fighters ??

    We all know that the LTTE used religious locations, schools and hospitals to fix their artillery – now that is something human for you I guess.

    Indeed the international community should not listen to the government alone – at the same time, they should not listen to you retards alone either.

    Fact – If Mahinda managed to keep the USA and UK in his good books, there would have been no HR issues of any kind against Sri Lanka.

    Fact 2 – Mahinda is in a way an Idiot not to get in to the good books of the USA & UK.

    1. Please read the first point in the comment you replied to again and go through the evidence provided again.

    Government statistics = statistics obtained from the Vanni district office.

    Lasantha is not related to the article in any way. In fact, I believe he was killed by mahinda's thugs at the time the article was written. Rayappu Joseph is who speaks out in the article.

    As for the bodies, do you really think that it's difficult to dispose of them when no independent investigations are allowed? Government forces have in the past been very successful in burying the bodies of innocents they killed in mass graves (for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemmani_mass_graves…. Now that there is no democracy whatsoever in Sri Lanka, hiding bodies is a simple task.

    Like I said in my previous comment, while the LTTE did commit war crimes, as evidence shows, the government forces have killed more innocents than the LTTE has during their entire existence.

    There's overwhelming evidence to support this, which includes eye witness accounts, photographic and video evidence.

    Besides, I myself know many people who've lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had ties to the LTTE), so I know for a fact that the government forces did kill innocent Tamils intentionally.

    S. Kanagaratnam is no longer a government detainee – If you say so, that means you have not read the article properly.

    So, now you talk about Mr. Rajasingham who is a Tamil and who apparently owns the Asian Tribune. In the article you posted it self you say that Mr. Rajasingham – A Tamil – was under threat from the LTTE !!

    So you Idiot – I ask again – How can you call LTTE an organization that stood for Tamils ???? Now we see another evidence of a Tamil Fleeing fearing LTTE.

    If I am not mistaken, I remember your fellow copy paste blogger ROHAN pasting many articles from Asian Tribune to discredit the GOSL. So, I wonder how Asian tribune was unbiased and good at that point and had suddenly become dubious because they published Kanagaratnam's statements.

    Is Tamilnet the only credible information source for you????? My deepest sympathies if so..

  217. For the Sri Lankan government to be seen credible will its ministers answers the obvious that they foolishly deny?

    1. 'Zero civilian casualty' in the war
    2. Claiming only 70,000 civilians caught within the 'NFZ' whereas more than 300,000 escaped and countless killed.
    3. The need to separate children, husbands and wives from the tormented and starved civilians who escaped at the end and intern them behind barbed wires for more than an year.
    4. The need to deploy Sinhalese speaking army in the Tamil areas even after crushing LTTE and no incident of violence from LTTE is reported.
    5. The need to maintain Emergency regulations and Anti-Terrorism law even now when there is no rebels action anywhere in the country.
    6. Why cannot the independent reporters and foreigners be allowed to visit the North and see for themselves the conditions the civilians live under and how they are treated by the army and police.
    7. Why should the army insist they present in any ceremony held in the north and monitor what Tamils speak or do among themselves?
    Why cannot the Tamil MPs be allowed to inspect and talk to the LTTE 'suspects' held in camps, because they were already duped 3 times.

    There were UN (along with Red Cross) aid workers who were present during the war. Some of these aid workers were attacked by the government forces as well: http://www.channel4.com/news/sri-lanka-war-crimes

    The UN says that the government forces killed ATLEAST 40,000 innocents, not 6,500. But I know for a fact that the number is in the hundreds of thousands.

    UN and Red Cross aid workers themselves say that government forces shelled at the hospitals they were working at (yes, they're referring to the makeshift hospitals in tents and the like). Government forces also fired at a Red Cross aid ship.

    No medical supplies reached the innocents injured. The government forces blocked medical supplies (the UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working during the conflict attest to this) from reaching the innocents.

    Oh and I live in Sri Lanka and I know people who witnessed the war. Among these people are those who lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had any connections to the LTTE). I also know of Tamils who’ve been killed recently for no reason other than racism at the hands of government forces.

    Considering how Tamils are, to this day, being abducted, tortured, raped and killed for no reason (ethnic cleansing), ‘shutting up’ as you say would only worsen the suffering these people are forced to go through on a daily basis due to the actions of the government and government forces.

    If you truly cared for these people, you’d be fighting for those responsible for the ethnic cleansing of Tamils being carried out to be prosecuted and punished.

    First of all – Thank you – I am finally conversing with someone than replying to copy and paste articles.

    Government statistics = statistics obtained from the Vanni district office.

    I am not sure how you got access to such stats from Vanni, but, I am sure that even if that's the case it will contain details of the number of people killed by the LTTE – we ould not know for sure who was killed by whom. One of the better evidence we have is what Mr. Kanagaratnam, Daya Master and George master says – there also were many confessions made by Ex. LTTE carders who are undergoing rehabilitation and many child solfiers who actually are studying in Colombo with other children who says that it was LTTE who killed the civilians. – See I tell you what I hear from the horses mouth itself – what you say is what you heard from another source. Telling that these guys are under government parole is lame – Isn't there a single person who will have a spine to say that the others are lying ?? Rubish Machan.. I have loads of friends (Tamil) who know the actual situation and who's parents and siblings were caught in the situation – They all are happy that the LTTE is gone.

    I would not argue with you on Lasantha and his Killing – utter shame !

    As for the mass graves – thanks for posting the link.
    The article clearly says that the Army guy who raped that innocent girl was sent to Jail and there were no bodies as initially thought – which means that the army guy was lying or someone was lying. so, there were only 15 bodies as oppose to 400 as initially thought of – will this not be the case of your 40,000 dead personnel during war ?? Somebody is messing up with numbers somewhere.

    Anyways, also think of it like this – You can definitely have a mass grave for 20-50 bodies – but, cummon, how much of land area do you think you need to hide 100,000 bodies?? Di you think that someone could seriously hide such a mass grave??? Let's think logical here mate !

    Machan – U also say that government killed more civilians than the LTTE did during the whole time.
    1. Thanks for accepting the LTTE did kill innocent.
    2. where are the stats??

    Machan – we are talking about a legally elected government who is responsible for their acts as oppose to a world branded terrorist organization which was not accountable for anything they did from any party. Whom do I believe? We both know that USA would have been on GOSL side if Mahinda had a little bit more training on diplomacy and there would have been no one to bother about the war – It did happen initially ya? When USA was helping SL… If Mahinda had continued the relationship, it would have been different.

    I am also telling you stories from eye witness accounts – I am not making them up or pointing government stats only to prove a point. I have met many of them myself too. But, the stories I hear are more in line with the GOSL than the LTTE supporters.

    As per your last parah, I cannot fathom as to why the government should kill civilians just for nothing. There should be some reason – I am not saying that the government would have let people go or send some to jail if they got to know that they had ties with LTTE – There might have been instances where some would have been killed – USA would defa do it to Thaliban guys and this part I guess is kinda understood when it comes to war situations though you cannot justify it from a HR point of view. However, there is no requirement to kill anyone who doesn't pose a threat to another ya? I mean, there are many Tamils who are with the government as we post here and the government loves them for obvious reasons. So, neutral guys would always live.
    Anyways – thanks once again for the conversation and please, let's do continue if you have a different point of view.

    As per the medical aids, there were tons of medicine that was found after the war which were sent over to northern hospitals, but, never reached the hospitals but the LTTE bunkers.

    Machan – can we not seriously agree that the LTTE was a menace to Tamil people ?? At least the GOSL did not force people to join army and take ransom for not doing so. Do you seriously think that all who were fighting in the north did so willingly? Trust me, they are at peace now – let them be – paw machan – they suffered enough.

  227. Chellah,

    My Uncle who was a Tamil was killed by the LTTE – so I think I have answered your question direct and right. I feel for the other Tamils who had to go through the same shit too … So don't come to preach to me… I am sorry if you had any kind of a loss, but, I hope you would feel sorry for my loss too…

    Bottom line is that LTTE did kill many Tamils…. So I am not prepared to white wash them for any reason what so ever… They were terrorists and the retarded leader had only one thing in mind – To have a country to rule for himself – he did not care for you guys men. He only had his personnel agenda – If he did care for you, he would have been untouchable. His downfall was that he did not care of his own kind.

  228. Sri Lankan Catholic Bishop said that 150 000 Tamils from Vanni are missing. 40 000 were butchered by the Sri Lanka Army in the last days. I’m positive that Bloodthirsty Sinhalese soldiers eagerly target practiced on Tamil babies from Jaffna, Mannar, Trinco, Batti and other areas. So we can safely add another 100 000 . Rajapaksa is a butcher of the Tamil people, who killed 300 000 innocent women and children . Rajapaksa is the worst Mass Murderer !! He killed the most people in Sri Lanka

  229. Time has come for the sensible respectable law abiding Sinhalese to get the Sri Lanka out of the grip of an authoritative /dictatorial government which is hellbent on ruling the country by instilling fear into it's citizens.

    The current regime is doing to the same on ENTIRE country's population.
    Media,Judiciary,election commissioner and security services are all under rigid control by one family members.

    God safe Lanka.

  230. Any national reconciliation process should not leave any stone unturned in our long and violent history since independence.

    But I would like to point out the limited mandate of the Un advisory panel. They were asked to look into “accountability and obligations arising from the last stages of the war".

    I also believe they have given a platform to all the allegations against both parties in the conflict".

    The UN report can be found here: http://www.un.org/News/dh/infocus/Sri_Lanka/POE_R

    UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working during the war say that medical supplies were prevented from reaching the injured innocents by the government forces. The government saying that the medical aid provided by them went to the LTTE seems like a convenient way of hiding the fact that government forces blocked medical supplies from reaching injured innocents. After all, with the media powerless and independent investigations not being allowed, the masses wouldn't know any better.

    As for the LTTE, they would never even have come to existence if the majority of the Sinhalese people hadn't been discriminating against Tamils. During the 1940s S.J.V. Selvanayagam headed a non-violent Gandhian struggle to bring a political solution to the Tamils in Sri Lanka (which did not involve dividing the country), but the Sinhala extremists responded with violence. The LTTE stood up for a good cause, but the power corrupted the leaders which caused them to gradually lose focus of their goal.

    However, the LTTE was the only thing preventing the government from conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils as it is doing today. Now that there's no resistance, the government abducts, tortures, rapes and kills Tamils as they wish.

    They are NOT at peace now. The Tamils that the government forces didn't kill are being held in concentration camps where hundreds of people die EACH DAY due to starvation, lack of medical care, etc. The people who refuse to be held in these camps are homeless as their homes have either been destroyed or taken away from them by the government forces. Shops, businesses and other possessions have been taken away from Tamils by government forces by force. Not just that, but there are Tamils being abducted, tortured, raped and killed to this day, despite the war being over for almost two years now. Proof?

These innocent guys only got pulled from their parents and given a gun with a Cyanide capsule around the neck – Duka Nedda?? (R U not feeling sad?)

    Some are studying well machan – a few bright cases. I am sure they can turn out to be some good professionals in due course. I will support them till end if so – pls. do if you can too. Some don't have parents – LTTE had killed because they refused to give the child to the LTTE army. Sin Machan..

    Also, if there was Ethnic Cleansing, how can you be alive (if U R in SL?).. As we talk, there are close to 1.8 million Tamils living in this country without an issue ya? Not being killed !! So, why make false statements of Ethnic cleansing and genocide?

  236. It is really ultra nationalistic fury to the point of absurdity to back up a false sense of pride uner so-called "sovereignty" which has been stolen like daylight robbery fron the ethnic and religious minorities of the country carefully planned and executed over 63+ years of so-called independence

    Even under its unilateral constitution of 1971 to all revisions to the present day, in theory at least, sovereignty lies with the "people", not with govrnments. It did not and still does in theory lie only with the Sinhala people, but with all the communities-the Sinhalas, the Tamils, the Muslims, and others like the remnant Burghers, and the rest, who together agreed to seek independence from Britain under the Soulbury Constitution in Feb.1948.

    Since that day what has happened is unending turmoil of gerrymandering constitutions after the Sinhala Only language Act of 1956 accompanied by cyclical agitation of the peaceful kind by Tamil political parties accompanied by Sinhala mob riots every few years and violence of all sorts by thugs, incuding even the police and military elements against Tamil people inspired by monks and politcians. The Sinhala Only and Buddhism foremost provisons under the unilateral 1971 et al Constitutions ending with the 1978 constitution as well as accompanying riots and violence against Tamil people coupled with crude abandonment of peace accords reached with Governments of the day to settle the never ending language,ethnic and religious strife and riots cum pogroms were always scuttled by the very gevernments due to political opposition of both the two major Sinhala political parties-the UNP and the SLFP-from the south in a never ending cascade of political failures. Invariably language, ethnic and religion based issues were the major determinants of who wins the next election under "majoritarian democracy" at every election from 1956 to 2009! Due to intense political frustration and opposition from the Tamil youths who bore the brunt of discrimination, rising unemployment, alck of opportunities coupled with violence of all sorts against Tamils the old guard Tamil politicians opted to go to the polls in 1977 on a premise to switch from "federalism" and seek "a separate state of Eelam" from their electorates. They won unanimously. And it was opposed tooth and nail by the UNP government who with Sinhala support from other parties from the south, except the left parties, banned any such move by law.

    This is why you need to go through the evidence provided before bringing an argument.

    It was not me who got hold of the statistics from the Vanni District Office, it was Rayappu Joseph.

    The 146,679 people were definitely killed by government forces because when the total population figure was obtained (October 2008) the majority of Vanni had been under government control.

    As for Kanagaratnam, Daya Master and other ex-LTTE members, let me tell you something. The government forces did not spare a single LTTE member who did not wish to become their puppets. This is a fact. I know this because like I said before, I know people who experienced the war.

    If Kanagaratnam, Daya Master or any ex-LTTE member does not accept the fact that government forces intentionally killed innocent Tamils, they are simply lying.

    I know people who've witnessed the war first hand (some of whom who've lost family and friends to government forces, despite never having had any ties to the LTTE) and what they say matches up with the UN's claims. I'm not just 'hearing it from another source', I know eyewitnesses. I would have even arranged for you to meet up with some of these people so you can learn about what actually happened, but that's not possible since mahinda and his thugs are abducting and killing anyone who speaks the truth about the ethnic cleansing of Tamils he's conducting.

    I linked to the article on the mass graves to show you what the government forces were capable of. Those responsible were punished because there was some form of democracy in Sri Lanka at that time, unlike now.

    Claiming that there were ONLY 40,000 innocent Tamils killed by the government forces is actually going easy on them. I know for a fact that the number is well into the hundreds of thousands and that those killed involved babies and women as well.

    Hiding 100,000 bodies or more is a simple task, especially when people are prevented from investigating. Besides, it's not a must for all the bodies to be thrown in one mass grave. That and burial is not the only way to hide the bodies. I think the bodies were probably cremated as it would be quicker, cheaper and more effective at hiding the evidence.

    Like I said before, as the government prevents any investigations from being held on the war crimes committed by government forces, it's difficult to know of the exact number of innocent Tamils killed, UNLESS you know someone who witnessed the war. I myself know of many people who witnessed the war from Jaffna, Vanni, etc and they all agree that the UN figure of 40,000 is not even scratching the surface.

    Besides, even if you don't know people who witnessed the war you can read up on the eyewitness accounts who speak of just how many innocent Tamils government forces killed.

    The truth is all around you, if you wish to know it.

    mahinda and his thugs were never legally elected except for during his first term. This is a fact. Every single election (both presidential and municipal) after mahinda came to power were rigged. Hundreds of thousands of votes in favour of Sarath Foneska were found in the trash all over Sri Lanka, and even in the recent municipal elections, hundreds of thousands of votes in favour of the UNP were found in the trash. I know people who've seen the votes in the trash with their own eyes. So, no, the rajapaksa government is not a legally elected government.

    To be honest, if the 'eye witnesses' you spoke to deny that the government forces intentionally killed innocent Tamils, they either didn't witness the war or they're puppets of the rajapaksa government. I was speaking to one of the people I know who witnessed the war while I was typing out this response and told him how you've spoken to 'eye witnesses' who claim that government forces didn't intentionally kill innocent Tamils and he just laughed and told me to ask them if they were sure that it was the Sri Lankan war they were 'witnessing'.

    The government killed innocent Tamils because mahinda, basil, gotabaya and their thugs are racist towards Tamils. Oh and let's not forget wimal weerawansa, the same person who tried to ban the Tamil version of the Sri Lankan national anthem.

    There is absolutely no other reason why the government would have killed so many innocent Tamils. The people I know who lost family and friends to government forces have never had any ties to the LTTE, infact I wish you could meet them so you yourself can see how all they want is to live in peace and have equality, freedom and democracy.

    Nice talking to you :).

    You say

    Liar !!

    You are constantly celebrate the slaughter of 40 000 innocent Tamil civilians

    1. I do not believe that there were 40,000 civilians killed, hence, no reason to celebrate a kill of 40,000 – also pls. discuss with your friends and arrive at a single figure that you could talk of – one said 200,000 and as per your theory, I should celebrate more if so.

    2. I have always said that even the LTTE carders who died at the battle were innocent Children and young ones who could have done better to the country and the people with a Working tool than a Gun. I call retards only to the LTTE chief bras and those like you have the same mentality – i.e. to Kill Any Tamil who are against you – I know for a fact that you will kill me if you met me, but, what’s the bet that I will have a nice long chat with you over a coffee if I met you !!

    3. Prove – copy a single statement that I put down in any of the previous blogs even that made anyone think that I have celebrated the death of any innocent human – I will reveal my self to you and you can come and shoot me !!

    The UN report can be found here: http://www.un.org/News/dh/infocus/Sri_Lanka/POE_R

    UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working during the war say that medical supplies were prevented from reaching the injured innocents by the government forces. The government saying that the medical aid provided by them went to the LTTE seems like a convenient way of hiding the fact that government forces blocked medical supplies from reaching injured innocents. After all, with the media powerless and independent investigations not being allowed, the masses wouldn't know any better.

    As for the LTTE, they would never even have come to existence if the majority of the Sinhalese people hadn't been discriminating against Tamils. During the 1940s S.J.V. Selvanayagam headed a non-violent Gandhian struggle to bring a political solution to the Tamils in Sri Lanka (which did not involve dividing the country), but the Sinhala extremists responded with violence. The LTTE stood up for a good cause, but the power corrupted the leaders which caused them to gradually lose focus of their goal.

    However, the LTTE was the only thing preventing the government from conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils as it is doing today. Now that there's no resistance, the government abducts, tortures, rapes and kills Tamils as they wish.

    They are NOT at peace now. The Tamils that the government forces didn't kill are being held in concentration camps where hundreds of people die EACH DAY due to starvation, lack of medical care, etc. The people who refuse to be held in these camps are homeless as their homes have either been destroyed or taken away from them by the government forces. Shops, businesses and other possessions have been taken away from Tamils by government forces by force. Not just that, but there are Tamils being abducted, tortured, raped and killed to this day, despite the war being over for almost two years now. Proof?

    If you're hearing a different story to what hundreds of thousands of eye witnesses say, what countless pictures and videos say, well then, either the source for your information is false or you have an agenda (on mahinda's payroll, racist, Sinhala supremacist, etc). That's all there is to it.

    There is ethnic cleansing going on in Sri Lanka. It's just that you don't hear of it UNLESS you yourself know the people affected or their friends/family. Just recently the father of a woman from Jaffna I know was killed by being beaten to death by the government forces, and as you may have guessed, he was innocent and never had any ties to the LTTE.

    With the media being powerless, you have to investigate yourself to find the truth.

    I am currently living in Sri Lanka, but do you know why I'm not using my real name here? Yep, because if I don't maintain anonymity I'll be abducted or killed for speaking exposing the ethnic cleansing of Tamils going on in Sri Lanka to the world.

    The UN report is a moral victory for the truth for the first time in SL.
    Not necessarily – may be for you as you were similar to those who would cling on to a straw when getting washed down the stream !!

    The victory is irreversible
    The only victory that’s irreversible is the death of Retarded LTTE Leader – which we clearly celebrate… Not the innocent..

    2 states in the Island – dream on – even if the UN punishes Rajapakse’s there will be no peelam as India will be the first to oppose same.

    And the world at large will realise that the Tamls can never ever live peacefully with the Tamils with mutual trust.

    The above sentence of yours is a GEM !!
    I totally Agree – Tamils will have a huge issue in trusting even a fellow Tamil after your Retarded Masters killed So Many Tamils – I have posted the list of promonant Tamils that were killed by the LTTE many a times before – Google and You will know.

    They are cowards unable to face the truth.
    The only people I see who cannot face the truth are retards like you – Get over it – Prabha is dead !! He was a coward who used the very same people he told he would stand for as a human shield to sabe him self – the fat Retard was a coward – accept the truth – Good he is Dead and Gone – accept it !!

    Whatever the GOSL says the UN will move forward and punish the offenders,

    It is the very mass you are trying to be sympathetic to who are standing for Rajapakse’s (Unfortunately) It was your retard who actually got Rajapakse in to power – If he had allowed the Jaffna people to vote in 2006, Ranil would have been the president and we would not have this economic difficulties. So, there again, it was you retards who screwed it for all Sri Lankans by getting Rajapakse in to power.

    Also dream on about UN punishing SL – The Baboon with the report himself has said that he cannot do anything without the approval of the rest of the member states or the security council – Bad News – Security council contains Russia and China with LOADS of POWER !!

    Nalan – when I said the LTTE Killed Tamils – I posted the names list of the famous kind and also gave evidence of the rest.

    When you say Rajapakse killed Tamils – you give no credible evidence – it is like the Artillery the Sri Lanka army fired to the Sea after the Battle was won – only sound no damage.

    You are the people whom in the English language are described as “ALL FART – NO SHIT” – Basically PUSS !!

  246. Namaste.

    1. When mahinda and his thugs did not and do not allow independent investigations into the ethnic cleansing of Tamils committed by them, no one other than the government themselves know the exact number of innocent Tamils who have been killed. The government however, does not release this information as it’s stand is that not a single innocent Tamil was and is being harmed in Sri Lanka, despite the overwhelming evidence (which includes eye witness accounts, video and photographic evidence, etc). But as per government statistics, we can say that a minimum of 146,679 innocent Tamils were killed by the government forces (http://www.thesundayleader.lk/2011/01/23/it’s-“lesson-learnt”-—-146000-equal-“naught”-—-equals-“reconciliation”/), and this is in the Vanni alone.

    Taking into account the people I myself know who’ve lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had any ties to the LTTE), I can say without a hint of doubt that the number is well over 146,679. When you add to that the innocent Tamils being killed everyday AFTER the war ended, the number increases even more.

    3. The proof is in your last comment itself, in your first point. I quote:

    “I should celebrate more if so.”

  247. Sinhalse War criminals including Rajapaksa, Gotha, military leaders and other government officials such as Dr.Palitha dogs start wetting their pants. :(

    They wanted to prevent this report reaching mass media.

    However the whole world is waking up to the cruelty committed by Sinhala terrorists in Sri Lanka.

    The moment it reaches the whole world will come together and severely punish Sinhala criminals and their manipulative leaders.

  248. Rip Van Winkle

    I find it hilarious !!

    I laugh aloud at your silly machinations to hide the mass slaughter of Tamil combatants.

    Thousands of Tamil mothers, Tamil wives, Tamil children are crying for their love ones .

    Two years pass by and no has the list of prisoners despite constant promises.

    And like ALL promises in the Rajapaksa Government.

    The promises are always broken

  249. Sri Lankan Catholic Bishop said that 146,679 Tamils from Vanni are missing.

    40 000 were butchered by the Sri Lanka Army in the last days.

    I’m positive that Bloodthirsty Sinhalese soldiers eagerly target practiced on Tamil babies from Jaffna, Mannar, Trinco, Batti and other areas.

    So we can safely add another 100 000 .

    Rajapaksa is a butcher of the Tamil people, who killed 300 000 innocent women and children .

    Rajapaksa is the worst Mass Murderer !!

    He killed the most people in Sri Lanka

  250. Fiction and Fact

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government repeatedly said heavy weapons were not used in the safe-zone.

    Fact: Evidence from the UN clearly shows that the Sri-Lankan military used heavy weapons in the safe-zone.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that there were less than 100,000 civilians in the war-zone. It also criticized the UN and aid agencies for overstating the number of civilians in the war-zone.

    Fact: More than 250,000 civilians escaped from the war-zone. Another 100,000 are still unaccounted for.

    “The Sri Lankan government has consistently curtailed international assistance and monitoring based on assertions that it has the situation in hand. But a quick look at their own statements shows a pattern of MISREPRESENTING the FACTS. That is why it is so important to ensure that there are independent, international monitors who can provide an accurate picture of the situation on the ground.” Sam Zarifi, Amnesty International’s Asia-Pacific director.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that NO civilian was killed by the military.

    Fact: Tens of thousands of civilians died in the final phase of Sri Lanka’s civil war – most of them killed in shelling by government forces, a UN panel says.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that it did not bomb hospitals in the war zone.

    Fact: The UN panel found credible allegations of serious violations committed by the Sri-Lankan government including:

    * Killing of civilians through widespread shelling

    * Shelling of hospitals

    * Human rights violations against civilians, media personnel and government critics.

    The Sri-Lankan government has refused to allow access to international media organisations and independent observers to the North of the country. It is still denying free access. It should be clear to anyone that the reason for this is simple: The government does not want anyone to find what actually happened there.

    The International Community should stop listening to the nonsense from the regime in Colombo. It is time to ACT and to bring all the WAR CRIMINALS to book.

    We are here – we see what’s happening and we report the exact situation. I can show to you hundreds of made up videos and I can write stories very well while hallucinating on Sri Lankan Army killing thousands of Tamils just in an instant… But, that is not the fact or the truth.

    Here is the truth…

    http://www.spur.asn.au/prominent_tamil_leaders_killed.htm

    If the retarded LTTE leadership can brutally assassinate these Tamils without having any kind of heart, why should I not believe that the same Retarde leadership actually ordered to shoot innocent Tamil Civilians who were trying to to escape to government control areas ?? We also have UAV video evidence to prove it – go on youtube and watch it over and over again for your P Brains to get a hang of it.

    Maria – If you are serious about getting those innocent Tamils of the North to live a happy life, the best thing you could do is to SHUT UP… Seriously – trust me on this because I am not talking for Rajapakse here, but for a set of innocent people who have suffered enough.

    1. Please give us a link to the government web site that says that they accept that they killed 146,679 civilians.. (First of all, where are the bodies?)
    With all due respect to a great journalist in Lasantha, his issue was that he wrote stuff against the government due to political reasons and wrote without facts hiding behind the immunity provided to journalists. Def. was unfortunate and the GOSL should be held responsible for his death by all means. Let’s fight for him together if you wish.

    The fact is that Lasantha nor any of his fellow editors didn’t have a clue of what happened there either. I don’t agree with the GOSL when they say that there were zero casualties because that is bloody absurd and any donkey would know that it never could happen. The very mistake the Rajapakse’s did was to say that there were 0 casualties. Obviously you cannot win a war without a few civilians being killed, and on this occasion, it is Retarded Prabha who should be held responsible for making a human shield out of the innocent and not the government.

    I cannot see a point number 2 so let me go to your point number 3.

    Fiction and Fact

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government repeatedly said heavy weapons were not used in the safe-zone.

    Fact:How can UN have any kind of evidence when none of them were here to experience what happened?

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that there were less than 100,000 civilians in the war-zone. It also criticized the UN and aid agencies for overstating the number of civilians in the war-zone.

    Fact: GOSL never mentioned 100,000 – it was 350,000 – yes, all of them were held hostage by the retard.

    Amnesty or anybody could say anything, but, the fact is that if there were external parties in the war zone, the war would have gone on forever – who was going to guaranty their safety ?? For all you know, the retarded Prabha would have held the Amnesty guys Hostage too.

    Guys – also don’t forget that Amnesty have clearly mentioned that the retards of LTTE did kill Tamils – so if you are denying it, you are denying an Amnesty International report yourselves

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that NO civilian was killed by the military.

    Fact: Bull Shit – GOSL are Mad to say so – there def. were civilian deaths and deaths cause by the LTTE retards to the civilians too. I am sorry I cannot find the video where a Pregnant Suicide Bomber blows herself off at an army receiving point – where those who escaped LTTE were received by the Army. So, Def. the LTTE killed civilians and I am pretty sure that the government firing killed many too. UN says 6,500. I don’t know any other report that says else-wise from any credible source.

    Fiction: The Sri-Lankan government claimed that it did not bomb hospitals in the war zone.

    Fact: Indeed they did…. The fact was that they were no longer Hospitals – they were LTTE gun points – the Hospitals had already shifted to houses or tents and the wounded were LTTE fighters and not innocent civilians. Also mind that the medicine used were all Free Supplies from the Government of Sri Lanka – that’s how the GOSL treated the enemy – Does USA drop Medicine to Taliban fighters ??

    We all know that the LTTE used religious locations, schools and hospitals to fix their artillery – now that is something human for you I guess.

    Indeed the international community should not listen to the government alone – at the same time, they should not listen to you retards alone either.

    Fact – If Mahinda managed to keep the USA and UK in his good books, there would have been no HR issues of any kind against Sri Lanka.

    Fact 2 – Mahinda is in a way an Idiot not to get in to the good books of the USA & UK.

    1. Please read the first point in the comment you replied to again and go through the evidence provided again.

    Government statistics = statistics obtained from the Vanni district office.

    Lasantha is not related to the article in any way. In fact, I believe he was killed by mahinda’s thugs at the time the article was written. Rayappu Joseph is who speaks out in the article.

    As for the bodies, do you really think that it’s difficult to dispose of them when no independent investigations are allowed? Government forces have in the past been very successful in burying the bodies of innocents they killed in mass graves (for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemmani_mass_graves_investigation). Now that there is no democracy whatsoever in Sri Lanka, hiding bodies is a simple task.

    Like I said in my previous comment, while the LTTE did commit war crimes, as evidence shows, the government forces have killed more innocents than the LTTE has during their entire existence.

    There’s overwhelming evidence to support this, which includes eye witness accounts, photographic and video evidence.

    Besides, I myself know many people who’ve lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had ties to the LTTE), so I know for a fact that the government forces did kill innocent Tamils intentionally.

    So, now you talk about Mr. Rajasingham who is a Tamil and who apparently owns the Asian Tribune. In the article you posted it self you say that Mr. Rajasingham – A Tamil – was under threat from the LTTE !!

    So you Idiot – I ask again – How can you call LTTE an organization that stood for Tamils ???? Now we see another evidence of a Tamil Fleeing fearing LTTE.

    If I am not mistaken, I remember your fellow copy paste blogger ROHAN pasting many articles from Asian Tribune to discredit the GOSL. So, I wonder how Asian tribune was unbiased and good at that point and had suddenly become dubious because they published Kanagaratnam’s statements.

    Is Tamilnet the only credible information source for you????? My deepest sympathies if so..

    See it’s ranks against some credible news sites…

  256. For the Sri Lankan government to be seen credible will its ministers answers the obvious that they foolishly deny?

    1. ‘Zero civilian casualty’ in the war
    2. Claiming only 70,000 civilians caught within the ‘NFZ’ whereas more than 300,000 escaped and countless killed.
    3. The need to separate children, husbands and wives from the tormented and starved civilians who escaped at the end and intern them behind barbed wires for more than an year.
    4. The need to deploy Sinhalese speaking army in the Tamil areas even after crushing LTTE and no incident of violence from LTTE is reported.
    5. The need to maintain Emergency regulations and Anti-Terrorism law even now when there is no rebels action anywhere in the country.
    6. Why cannot the independent reporters and foreigners be allowed to visit the North and see for themselves the conditions the civilians live under and how they are treated by the army and police.
    7. Why should the army insist they present in any ceremony held in the north and monitor what Tamils speak or do among themselves?
    Why cannot the Tamil MPs be allowed to inspect and talk to the LTTE ‘suspects’ held in camps, because they were already duped 3 times.

    There were UN (along with Red Cross) aid workers who were present during the war. Some of these aid workers were attacked by the government forces as well: http://www.channel4.com/news/sri-lanka-war-crimes-is-srebrenica-moment

    The UN says that the government forces killed ATLEAST 40,000 innocents, not 6,500. But I know for a fact that the number is in the hundreds of thousands.

    UN and Red Cross aid workers themselves say that government forces shelled at the hospitals they were working at (yes, they’re referring to the makeshift hospitals in tents and the like). Government forces also fired at a Red Cross aid ship.

    No medical supplies reached the innocents injured. The government forces blocked medical supplies (the UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working during the conflict attest to this) from reaching the innocents.

    Please go through the UN report.

  258. @Rip Van Winkle,

    No one is denying that the LTTE committed war crimes. However, evidence shows that the government forces killed more innocent people than the LTTE did during their entire existence.

    Oh and I live in Sri Lanka and I know people who witnessed the war. Among these people are those who lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had any connections to the LTTE). I also know of Tamils who’ve been killed recently for no reason other than racism at the hands of government forces.

    Considering how Tamils are, to this day, being abducted, tortured, raped and killed for no reason (ethnic cleansing), ‘shutting up’ as you say would only worsen the suffering these people are forced to go through on a daily basis due to the actions of the government and government forces.

    If you truly cared for these people, you’d be fighting for those responsible for the ethnic cleansing of Tamils being carried out to be prosecuted and punished.

    First of all – Thank you – I am finally conversing with someone than replying to copy and paste articles.

    Government statistics = statistics obtained from the Vanni district office.

    I am not sure how you got access to such stats from Vanni, but, I am sure that even if that’s the case it will contain details of the number of people killed by the LTTE – we ould not know for sure who was killed by whom. One of the better evidence we have is what Mr. Kanagaratnam, Daya Master and George master says – there also were many confessions made by Ex. LTTE carders who are undergoing rehabilitation and many child solfiers who actually are studying in Colombo with other children who says that it was LTTE who killed the civilians. – See I tell you what I hear from the horses mouth itself – what you say is what you heard from another source. Telling that these guys are under government parole is lame – Isn’t there a single person who will have a spine to say that the others are lying ?? Rubish Machan.. I have loads of friends (Tamil) who know the actual situation and who’s parents and siblings were caught in the situation – They all are happy that the LTTE is gone.

    I would not argue with you on Lasantha and his Killing – utter shame !

    As for the mass graves – thanks for posting the link.
    The article clearly says that the Army guy who raped that innocent girl was sent to Jail and there were no bodies as initially thought – which means that the army guy was lying or someone was lying. so, there were only 15 bodies as oppose to 400 as initially thought of – will this not be the case of your 40,000 dead personnel during war ?? Somebody is messing up with numbers somewhere.

    Anyways, also think of it like this – You can definitely have a mass grave for 20-50 bodies – but, cummon, how much of land area do you think you need to hide 100,000 bodies?? Di you think that someone could seriously hide such a mass grave??? Let’s think logical here mate !

    Machan – U also say that government killed more civilians than the LTTE did during the whole time.
    1. Thanks for accepting the LTTE did kill innocent.
    2. where are the stats??

    Machan – we are talking about a legally elected government who is responsible for their acts as oppose to a world branded terrorist organization which was not accountable for anything they did from any party. Whom do I believe? We both know that USA would have been on GOSL side if Mahinda had a little bit more training on diplomacy and there would have been no one to bother about the war – It did happen initially ya? When USA was helping SL… If Mahinda had continued the relationship, it would have been different.

    I am also telling you stories from eye witness accounts – I am not making them up or pointing government stats only to prove a point. I have met many of them myself too. But, the stories I hear are more in line with the GOSL than the LTTE supporters.

    As per your last parah, I cannot fathom as to why the government should kill civilians just for nothing. There should be some reason – I am not saying that the government would have let people go or send some to jail if they got to know that they had ties with LTTE – There might have been instances where some would have been killed – USA would defa do it to Thaliban guys and this part I guess is kinda understood when it comes to war situations though you cannot justify it from a HR point of view. However, there is no requirement to kill anyone who doesn’t pose a threat to another ya? I mean, there are many Tamils who are with the government as we post here and the government loves them for obvious reasons. So, neutral guys would always live.
    Anyways – thanks once again for the conversation and please, let’s do continue if you have a different point of view.

    Mahinda Rajapaksa is no President; he has lost all capacity to differentiate between Black and White; Good and Bad; Pretty and Ugly; brains and brawns.

    Hi Again… (bit sleepy now)

    I have not heard of a UN report that say 40,000 were killed – please elucidate me on same.

    As per the medical aids, there were tons of medicine that was found after the war which were sent over to northern hospitals, but, never reached the hospitals but the LTTE bunkers.

    Machan – can we not seriously agree that the LTTE was a menace to Tamil people ?? At least the GOSL did not force people to join army and take ransom for not doing so. Do you seriously think that all who were fighting in the north did so willingly? Trust me, they are at peace now – let them be – paw machan – they suffered enough.

    About UN report and justice

    If your mother sister and brothers
    massacred and raped,
    would you keep the same line?

    I want justice for my families sufferings !

    Whoever harmed my family brought to justice!

    My priorities are accountability and justice!

    It’s alright for outsiders to preach what is best

    But they haven’t suffered or now suffering?

  264. Latika,

    I don’t think we would fancy wriggling under a sari of a 60 year old woman, would not mind if it was a bit younger than that and was a mini skirt instead of a sari – LOL!

    LEt’s not argue about MR’s presidency.. Baseless noh?

    Cheers !!

  265. Rip Van Winkle

    You are a “nutty professor” or a “bull in the china shop” !!

  266. Chellah,

    My Uncle who was a Tamil was killed by the LTTE – so I think I have answered your question direct and right. I feel for the other Tamils who had to go through the same shit too … So don’t come to preach to me… I am sorry if you had any kind of a loss, but, I hope you would feel sorry for my loss too…

    Bottom line is that LTTE did kill many Tamils…. So I am not prepared to white wash them for any reason what so ever… They were terrorists and the retarded leader had only one thing in mind – To have a country to rule for himself – he did not care for you guys men. He only had his personnel agenda – If he did care for you, he would have been untouchable. His downfall was that he did not care of his own kind.

  267. Time has come for the sensible respectable law abiding Sinhalese to get the Sri Lanka out of the grip of an authoritative /dictatorial government which is hellbent on ruling the country by instilling fear into it’s citizens.

    The current regime is doing to the same on ENTIRE country’s population.
    Media,Judiciary,election commissioner and security services are all under rigid control by one family members.

    God safe Lanka.

  268. Any national reconciliation process should not leave any stone unturned in our long and violent history since independence.

    But I would like to point out the limited mandate of the Un advisory panel. They were asked to look into “accountability and obligations arising from the last stages of the war”.

    I also believe they have given a platform to all the allegations against both parties in the conflict”.

    Machan – If you are living in SL, we can’t be hearing 2 different stories noh? Why should I lie and not fight with you if I am hearing the same stories as you do??

    Have you visited Hindu Collage recently? If you are in Colombo, visit the innocent child soldiers and listen to them. If you have a heart, you will tear. We had wonderful childhoods machan… Had parents to take us wherever we wanted, give all the food we asked for, carnivals, sports activities etc.. These innocent guys only got pulled from their parents and given a gun with a Cyanide capsule around the neck – Duka Nedda?? (R U not feeling sad?)

    Some are studying well machan – a few bright cases. I am sure they can turn out to be some good professionals in due course. I will support them till end if so – pls. do if you can too. Some don’t have parents – LTTE had killed because they refused to give the child to the LTTE army. Sin Machan..

    Also, if there was Ethnic Cleansing, how can you be alive (if U R in SL?).. As we talk, there are close to 1.8 million Tamils living in this country without an issue ya? Not being killed !! So, why make false statements of Ethnic cleansing and genocide?

    I totally agree with your post – UN should look at the happenings from 1956 to-date and realise what has happened, how the reconciliation process happened, what atrocities were carried out etc.

    This is exactly what we tell UN and AI too – not to put out a report just for the sake of doing it.

  271. ALL THESE DAYS MODAYA LEADER HAS FOOLED THE ENTIRE WORLD THAT THERE WERE NO HUMAN CASUALTIES AND EVERYONE INCLUDING ECONOMIST BELIEVED THIS.

    MODAYAS TOLD THE WORLD THAT THERE WERE ONLY 5000 PEOPLE IN MULLAITIVU BUT LATER THEY HAVE ASKED HELP FROM UN FOR OVER 300,000 PEOPLE.

    TRUTH IS OVER 100,000 ARE MISSING.

    NOT ONLY THE MODAYA LEADER BUT ALSO THE UN HAVE TO ACCEPT THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THIS MASSCARE.

    MODAYA LEADER & CO HAVE LOST SLEEP.

  272. The Sinhalese majority community who elect the Sri Lankan Government suffer from these diseases:

    2.1 Rape

    2.2 Outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment
    2.3 Failure to collect and care for the wounded and sick

    (a) Serious violations of Common Article 3, including violence to life and person, in particular murder of all kinds, mutilation, cruel treatment and torture, including rape; outrages upon personal dignity, in particular humiliating and degrading treatment and failure to collect and care for the wounded and sick;

    (b) International attacks on civilians.

    (c) Indiscriminate or disproportionate attacks on civilians;

    (d) Attacks on medical and humanitarian objects, including humanitarian convoys and Red Cross – designated facilities.

    (e) Starvation of the population and denial of humanitarian relief; and

    (f) Enforced disappearances.

  273. It is really ultra nationalistic fury to the point of absurdity to back up a false sense of pride uner so-called “sovereignty” which has been stolen like daylight robbery fron the ethnic and religious minorities of the country carefully planned and executed over 63+ years of so-called independence

    Even under its unilateral constitution of 1971 to all revisions to the present day, in theory at least, sovereignty lies with the “people”, not with govrnments. It did not and still does in theory lie only with the Sinhala people, but with all the communities-the Sinhalas, the Tamils, the Muslims, and others like the remnant Burghers, and the rest, who together agreed to seek independence from Britain under the Soulbury Constitution in Feb.1948.

    Since that day what has happened is unending turmoil of gerrymandering constitutions after the Sinhala Only language Act of 1956 accompanied by cyclical agitation of the peaceful kind by Tamil political parties accompanied by Sinhala mob riots every few years and violence of all sorts by thugs, incuding even the police and military elements against Tamil people inspired by monks and politcians. The Sinhala Only and Buddhism foremost provisons under the unilateral 1971 et al Constitutions ending with the 1978 constitution as well as accompanying riots and violence against Tamil people coupled with crude abandonment of peace accords reached with Governments of the day to settle the never ending language,ethnic and religious strife and riots cum pogroms were always scuttled by the very gevernments due to political opposition of both the two major Sinhala political parties-the UNP and the SLFP-from the south in a never ending cascade of political failures. Invariably language, ethnic and religion based issues were the major determinants of who wins the next election under “majoritarian democracy” at every election from 1956 to 2009! Due to intense political frustration and opposition from the Tamil youths who bore the brunt of discrimination, rising unemployment, alck of opportunities coupled with violence of all sorts against Tamils the old guard Tamil politicians opted to go to the polls in 1977 on a premise to switch from “federalism” and seek “a separate state of Eelam” from their electorates. They won unanimously. And it was opposed tooth and nail by the UNP government who with Sinhala support from other parties from the south, except the left parties, banned any such move by law.

    This is why you need to go through the evidence provided before bringing an argument.

    It was not me who got hold of the statistics from the Vanni District Office, it was Rayappu Joseph.

    The 146,679 people were definitely killed by government forces because when the total population figure was obtained (October 2008) the majority of Vanni had been under government control.

    As for Kanagaratnam, Daya Master and other ex-LTTE members, let me tell you something. The government forces did not spare a single LTTE member who did not wish to become their puppets. This is a fact. I know this because like I said before, I know people who experienced the war.

    If Kanagaratnam, Daya Master or any ex-LTTE member does not accept the fact that government forces intentionally killed innocent Tamils, they are simply lying.

    I know people who’ve witnessed the war first hand (some of whom who’ve lost family and friends to government forces, despite never having had any ties to the LTTE) and what they say matches up with the UN’s claims. I’m not just ‘hearing it from another source’, I know eyewitnesses. I would have even arranged for you to meet up with some of these people so you can learn about what actually happened, but that’s not possible since mahinda and his thugs are abducting and killing anyone who speaks the truth about the ethnic cleansing of Tamils he’s conducting.

    I linked to the article on the mass graves to show you what the government forces were capable of. Those responsible were punished because there was some form of democracy in Sri Lanka at that time, unlike now.

    Claiming that there were ONLY 40,000 innocent Tamils killed by the government forces is actually going easy on them. I know for a fact that the number is well into the hundreds of thousands and that those killed involved babies and women as well.

    Hiding 100,000 bodies or more is a simple task, especially when people are prevented from investigating. Besides, it’s not a must for all the bodies to be thrown in one mass grave. That and burial is not the only way to hide the bodies. I think the bodies were probably cremated as it would be quicker, cheaper and more effective at hiding the evidence.

    Like I said before, as the government prevents any investigations from being held on the war crimes committed by government forces, it’s difficult to know of the exact number of innocent Tamils killed, UNLESS you know someone who witnessed the war. I myself know of many people who witnessed the war from Jaffna, Vanni, etc and they all agree that the UN figure of 40,000 is not even scratching the surface.

    Besides, even if you don’t know people who witnessed the war you can read up on the eyewitness accounts who speak of just how many innocent Tamils government forces killed.

    The truth is all around you, if you wish to know it.

    mahinda and his thugs were never legally elected except for during his first term. This is a fact. Every single election (both presidential and municipal) after mahinda came to power were rigged. Hundreds of thousands of votes in favour of Sarath Foneska were found in the trash all over Sri Lanka, and even in the recent municipal elections, hundreds of thousands of votes in favour of the UNP were found in the trash. I know people who’ve seen the votes in the trash with their own eyes. So, no, the rajapaksa government is not a legally elected government.

    To be honest, if the ‘eye witnesses’ you spoke to deny that the government forces intentionally killed innocent Tamils, they either didn’t witness the war or they’re puppets of the rajapaksa government. I was speaking to one of the people I know who witnessed the war while I was typing out this response and told him how you’ve spoken to ‘eye witnesses’ who claim that government forces didn’t intentionally kill innocent Tamils and he just laughed and told me to ask them if they were sure that it was the Sri Lankan war they were ‘witnessing’.

    The government killed innocent Tamils because mahinda, basil, gotabaya and their thugs are racist towards Tamils. Oh and let’s not forget wimal weerawansa, the same person who tried to ban the Tamil version of the Sri Lankan national anthem.

    There is absolutely no other reason why the government would have killed so many innocent Tamils. The people I know who lost family and friends to government forces have never had any ties to the LTTE, infact I wish you could meet them so you yourself can see how all they want is to live in peace and have equality, freedom and democracy.

    Nice talking to you :).

    The UN report can be found here: http://www.un.org/News/dh/infocus/Sri_Lanka/POE_Report_Full.pdf

    UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working during the war say that medical supplies were prevented from reaching the injured innocents by the government forces. The government saying that the medical aid provided by them went to the LTTE seems like a convenient way of hiding the fact that government forces blocked medical supplies from reaching injured innocents. After all, with the media powerless and independent investigations not being allowed, the masses wouldn’t know any better.

    As for the LTTE, they would never even have come to existence if the majority of the Sinhalese people hadn’t been discriminating against Tamils. During the 1940s S.J.V. Selvanayagam headed a non-violent Gandhian struggle to bring a political solution to the Tamils in Sri Lanka (which did not involve dividing the country), but the Sinhala extremists responded with violence. The LTTE stood up for a good cause, but the power corrupted the leaders which caused them to gradually lose focus of their goal.

    However, the LTTE was the only thing preventing the government from conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils as it is doing today. Now that there’s no resistance, the government abducts, tortures, rapes and kills Tamils as they wish.

    They are NOT at peace now. The Tamils that the government forces didn’t kill are being held in concentration camps where hundreds of people die EACH DAY due to starvation, lack of medical care, etc. The people who refuse to be held in these camps are homeless as their homes have either been destroyed or taken away from them by the government forces. Shops, businesses and other possessions have been taken away from Tamils by government forces by force. Not just that, but there are Tamils being abducted, tortured, raped and killed to this day, despite the war being over for almost two years now. Proof?

    If you’re hearing a different story to what hundreds of thousands of eye witnesses say, what countless pictures and videos say, well then, either the source for your information is false or you have an agenda (on mahinda’s payroll, racist, Sinhala supremacist, etc). That’s all there is to it.

    There is ethnic cleansing going on in Sri Lanka. It’s just that you don’t hear of it UNLESS you yourself know the people affected or their friends/family. Just recently the father of a woman from Jaffna I know was killed by being beaten to death by the government forces, and as you may have guessed, he was innocent and never had any ties to the LTTE.

    With the media being powerless, you have to investigate yourself to find the truth.

    I am currently living in Sri Lanka, but do you know why I’m not using my real name here? Yep, because if I don’t maintain anonymity I’ll be abducted or killed for speaking exposing the ethnic cleansing of Tamils going on in Sri Lanka to the world.

    The Tamil Natonal Alliance (TNA) MP for Vanni, Sathasivam Kanagaratnam, who talked to TamilNet correspondent in Vanni on Monday blamed the Sri Lankan military for planning to cause a mass slaughter of civilians as Colombo announced a 24-hour ultimatum of surrender to the LTTE. Colombo has warned of concerted attacks into the so-called 'safety zone' starting from Tuesday noon.

    "The remaining area in the south of safe zone is full of civilians as many more have fled in recent days," Mr. Kanagratnam said fearing an unprecedented civilian carnage.

    Stating that many civilians have been deprived of proper food for weeks and that WFP supplies have not been brought in adequately to meet the requirements, the MP said Vanni civilians were witnessing starvation as SLA was advancing into the safety zone.

    Several children have been severely affected by malnutrition. There are cases of deaths caused by starvation. Amidst all these inhuman conditions, the worst form of attacks are being carried out with cluster munitions on civilians, he charged.

  279. Sinhalse War criminals including Rajapaksa, Gotha, military leaders and other government officials such as Dr.Palitha dogs start wetting their pants. :(

    They wanted to prevent this report reaching mass media.

    However the whole world is waking up to the cruelty committed by Sinhala terrorists in Sri Lanka.

    The moment it reaches the whole world will come together and severely punish Sinhala criminals and their manipulative leaders.

    The Tamil Natonal Alliance (TNA) MP for Vanni, Sathasivam Kanagaratnam, who talked to TamilNet correspondent in Vanni on Monday blamed the Sri Lankan military for planning to cause a mass slaughter of civilians as Colombo announced a 24-hour ultimatum of surrender to the LTTE. Colombo has warned of concerted attacks into the so-called 'safety zone' starting from Tuesday noon.

    "The remaining area in the south of safe zone is full of civilians as many more have fled in recent days," Mr. Kanagratnam said fearing an unprecedented civilian carnage.

    Stating that many civilians have been deprived of proper food for weeks and that WFP supplies have not been brought in adequately to meet the requirements, the MP said Vanni civilians were witnessing starvation as SLA was advancing into the safety zone.

    Several children have been severely affected by malnutrition. There are cases of deaths caused by starvation. Amidst all these inhuman conditions, the worst form of attacks are being carried out with cluster munitions on civilians, he charged.

    The Tamil Natonal Alliance (TNA) MP for Vanni, Sathasivam Kanagaratnam, who talked to TamilNet correspondent in Vanni on Monday blamed the Sri Lankan military for planning to cause a mass slaughter of civilians as Colombo announced a 24-hour ultimatum of surrender to the LTTE. Colombo has warned of concerted attacks into the so-called 'safety zone' starting from Tuesday noon.

    "The remaining area in the south of safe zone is full of civilians as many more have fled in recent days," Mr. Kanagratnam said fearing an unprecedented civilian carnage.

    Stating that many civilians have been deprived of proper food for weeks and that WFP supplies have not been brought in adequately to meet the requirements, the MP said Vanni civilians were witnessing starvation as SLA was advancing into the safety zone.

    Several children have been severely affected by malnutrition. There are cases of deaths caused by starvation. Amidst all these inhuman conditions, the worst form of attacks are being carried out with cluster munitions on civilians, he charged.

  282. Dear Aathy

    Rip Van Winkle is a Sri Lanka Government Propagandist .

    He does not care for Tamils

    He only sees the Tamil’s fault in everything.

    He ignores the mount of evidence of the innocent people slaughter by the Butcher of the Tamil people – Rajapaksa

  283. War criminal Sri Lankan government is capable of committ any crime to achieve their criminal goals. UN should be mindful of 17 employees of the French INGO Action Against Hunger got slaughtered by these war criminals in 2006. UN should take every security measures to safeguard their employees in Sri Lanka. May 1 is a day dedicated for working class people and their will be mass rally to commemorate this day. If war criminals call any other day for their protest there wouldn't be any people to do that. So they cunningly exploit the May day rally to coverup their war crimes and genocide.

  284. The Sri Lankan government killed 17 members of my family – in 2009 alone.

    Why?

    Because we are Tamils.

    My priorities are accountability and justice!

    I want those who harmed my family brought to justice!

    It is the duty of the United Nations to commit to a war crimes investigations.

    There is no point in arguing about this – war crimes have been committed.

    Let there be investigations.

    If the Sri Lankan government are not war criminals, then why are they kicking up such a fuss about this – surely it will be in their best interests to have their names cleared?

    Do they have the blood of more than 40,000 Tamils on their hands?

    By the way, why have they still occupied the Tamil areas and why is the Nanthikadal Lagoon still closed to everyone.

    Have they not finished destroying the evidence of the more than 40,000 Tamils they have brutally murdered?

  285. Rip Van Winkle ! Says: April 29th, 2011 at 3:59 am,Please do educate me

    Buddhist Sinhala extremists in Sri Lanka are very much like the Nazi regime that preached hatred against the Jewish people, and the rulers of Sri Lanka are like reincarnations of Hitler because they are doing exactly what Hitler did sixty five years ago.
    Tamils in Sri Lanka haven't yet found the freedom that they have been longing for years. They are still like Jews that were in the hands of Hitler and Bosnian Muslims who were persecuted by Serbian extremists.

    As the cries of dying women and children were shaking the earth, Sri Lankan military used maximum fire power to kill several thousands Tamils every single day. While the wounded were crying for water to wet their tongues, military tanks rolled over them. Wounded and the sick who were hiding in the bunkers were buried alive. Those who surrendered with white flags were executed in cold blood. Petrol and chemicals were poured over the tents and dead bodies.

    Sri Lanka has now deceived the western countries and revealed its true face. Sri Lanka lied to the whole world that it was conducting a war with surgical strikes and “Zero Civilian Causalities”. It also denied that heavy weapons were used against civilians.
    Torture, murder, rape and all kind of human right violations in the concentrations camps of Sri Lanka, were sending shock waves across the world. Deportations of Western reporters, journalists and politicians from the Sri Lankan Airport and denial of access to the death camps of Sri Lanka for aid workers were showing the face of rebellious country that is willing go to any extent to defy international humanitarian laws.

    We have millions of evidences to prove that a systematic genocide is taking place in Sri Lanka while the Nations are watching. Neither UN nor any other world power is being able to stop the madness that is still going on in this country.

  286. Cricket match fixing in Sri Lanka

    Former Sri Lanka captain Hashan Tillakaratne has come out with startling revelations , saying that match-fixing was common in Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka President said that there were “Zero Civilians “in brutal the Sri Lanka War but UN report estimate that there were 40000 innocent Hindus were killed by indiscriminate Sri Lanka Government Shelling

    The Sri Lanka President lied !!!

    So lying, cheating and match fixing is a norm in morally bankrupt Sri Lanka

    The man behind Asian Tribune lies – K.T.Rajasingham, a failed tamil politician from Thailand
    Asian Tribune online web blog is often popular for twisting news and closely working with Sri Lankan Intelligence establishment & its paramilitary outfit like Karuna Group. The main behind this secret operation is Mr.K.T.Rajasingham, a failed tamil politician currently based in Thailand (House No: 8/6, Muban Amoronpan Nakorn, Sukapibal Road 2, Suan Siam, Bangok 10230, Thailand) and who is also alleged to be on the pay list of Sri Lanka. http://www.tamilsydney.com/content/view/178/37/

    Mr. Suhunan had phoned his family last on 18 May, 2009 at 6:15 a.m. local time, informing that he was among a group of persons in civil clothes, going into Sri Lanka Army (SLA) controlled territory in Mullaiththeevu.

    Knowingly or unknowingly, we have all been witnessing one of the darkest chapters in humanity, now being written by the blood of innocent civilians in a land that was once known as Pearl of the Indian Ocean. The ugliest part of this chapter is not what was happened to the innocents but the response from the civilised world that had so far failed miserably to save the lives, although it had the power to act.

  290. Extensive forensic investigations of the Mullivaikal massacre sites have not been carried out systematically to identify the bodies and bury them appropriately. That area has been out of bounds to its inhabitants except the Sri Lankan military to enable them to clean up the land. We still do not know what the Sri Lankan army has done to the bodies. Is there a combined memorial or a mortuary in Mullivaikal for the dead?

    The memory of Mullivaikal’s dead men women and children was kept alive by the surviving victims. They will continue to raise the memory at all international forums and will not rest until the truth is revealed. http://www.southasiaanalysis.org/%5Cpapers45%5Cpa

    A distinguished panel of reasonable people with no ethno-religious axe to grind in the Sri Lankan quagmire have called for an investigation. If Sri Lanka has no blood on its hands why not agree for such an international investigation to bring a closure to this tragedy. We repeat- Let the truth be told.

    Buddhist Sinhala extremists in Sri Lanka are very much like the Nazi regime that preached hatred against the Jewish people, and the rulers of Sri Lanka are like reincarnations of Hitler because they are doing exactly what Hitler did sixty five years ago.
    Tamils in Sri Lanka haven't yet found the freedom that they have been longing for years. They are still like Jews that were in the hands of Hitler and Bosnian Muslims who were persecuted by Serbian extremists.

    As the cries of dying women and children were shaking the earth, Sri Lankan military used maximum fire power to kill several thousands Tamils every single day. While the wounded were crying for water to wet their tongues, military tanks rolled over them. Wounded and the sick who were hiding in the bunkers were buried alive. Those who surrendered with white flags were executed in cold blood. Petrol and chemicals were poured over the tents and dead bodies.

    Sri Lanka has now deceived the western countries and revealed its true face. Sri Lanka lied to the whole world that it was conducting a war with surgical strikes and “Zero Civilian Causalities”. It also denied that heavy weapons were used against civilians.
    Torture, murder, rape and all kind of human right violations in the concentrations camps of Sri Lanka, were sending shock waves across the world. Deportations of Western reporters, journalists and politicians from the Sri Lankan Airport and denial of access to the death camps of Sri Lanka for aid workers were showing the face of rebellious country that is willing go to any extent to defy international humanitarian laws.

    We have millions of evidences to prove that a systematic genocide is taking place in Sri Lanka while the Nations are watching. Neither UN nor any other world power is being able to stop the madness that is still going on in this country.

    Asian Tribune online web blog is often popular for twisting news and closely working with Sri Lankan Intelligence establishment & its paramilitary outfit like Karuna Group.

  295. Namaste.

    I also want to address the whole 'Sri Lanka wouldn't have the UN trying to prosecute them of war crimes if they were in the good books of the US and UK' argument that Rip Van Winkle and some other supporters of mahinda have been bringing.

    First of all, the US only helped Sri Lanka as the Sri Lankan government was lying through their teeth as to what they were actually doing, which was ethnic cleansing. Basically they managed to deceive the international community into thinking that there were absolutely no civilian casualties, despite the fact that the number of innocent Tamils government forces killed reached well into the hundreds of thousands. The US along with some other countries of the international community believing this lie actually points to their incompetence as they should have thought to themselves why mahinda and his thugs are preventing the media from operating in the conflict areas (not the Sri Lankan media of course, which has been rendered powerless by mahinda and his thugs, I mean international media/independent journalists), if he has nothing to hide.

    The US stopped helping Sri Lanka as soon as it heard of what was actually going on.

    The only possibility of mahinda and his thugs being in the 'good books' of the US and the UK is if he were not a racist, which is not the case. The sole reason why he can't get in the 'good books' of the US and the UK is because of the fact that he's conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils, which the US, UK and any other sensible human being would obviously be against.

    So don't bring such flawed arguments.

    Namaste brother.

    You know what's even uglier? How Ban Ki-Moon is more concerned about being elected for a second term than preventing the Sri Lankan government from conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils, which is the kind of thing that he has been elected to do. Why would any nation want to elect him for a second term when he failed (and is continuing to fail) to do what he was elected to do in his first term?

    I feel sorry for Moon for placing more importance on materialistic things like money and power instead of helping prevent the ethnic cleansing of Tamils in Sri Lanka which has already consumed hundreds of thousands of innocent Tamils' lives.

    The Tamil Natonal Alliance (TNA) MP for Vanni, Sathasivam Kanagaratnam, who talked to TamilNet correspondent in Vanni on Monday blamed the Sri Lankan military for planning to cause a mass slaughter of civilians as Colombo announced a 24-hour ultimatum of surrender to the LTTE. Colombo has warned of concerted attacks into the so-called ‘safety zone’ starting from Tuesday noon.

    “The remaining area in the south of safe zone is full of civilians as many more have fled in recent days,” Mr. Kanagratnam said fearing an unprecedented civilian carnage.

    Stating that many civilians have been deprived of proper food for weeks and that WFP supplies have not been brought in adequately to meet the requirements, the MP said Vanni civilians were witnessing starvation as SLA was advancing into the safety zone.

    Several children have been severely affected by malnutrition. There are cases of deaths caused by starvation. Amidst all these inhuman conditions, the worst form of attacks are being carried out with cluster munitions on civilians, he charged.

  307. Dear Aathy

    Rip Van Winkle is a Sri Lanka Government Propagandist .

    He does not care for Tamils

    He only sees the Tamil’s fault in everything.

    He ignores the mount of evidence of the innocent people slaughter by the Butcher of the Tamil people – Rajapaksa

  308. War criminal Sri Lankan government is capable of committ any crime to achieve their criminal goals. UN should be mindful of 17 employees of the French INGO Action Against Hunger got slaughtered by these war criminals in 2006. UN should take every security measures to safeguard their employees in Sri Lanka. May 1 is a day dedicated for working class people and their will be mass rally to commemorate this day. If war criminals call any other day for their protest there wouldn’t be any people to do that. So they cunningly exploit the May day rally to coverup their war crimes and genocide.

  309. The Sri Lankan government killed 17 members of my family – in 2009 alone.

    Why?

    Because we are Tamils.

    My priorities are accountability and justice!

    I want those who harmed my family brought to justice!

    It is the duty of the United Nations to commit to a war crimes investigations.

    There is no point in arguing about this – war crimes have been committed.

    Let there be investigations.

    If the Sri Lankan government are not war criminals, then why are they kicking up such a fuss about this – surely it will be in their best interests to have their names cleared?

    Do they have the blood of more than 40,000 Tamils on their hands?

    By the way, why have they still occupied the Tamil areas and why is the Nanthikadal Lagoon still closed to everyone.

    Have they not finished destroying the evidence of the more than 40,000 Tamils they have brutally murdered?

  310. Cricket match fixing in Sri Lanka

    Former Sri Lanka captain Hashan Tillakaratne has come out with startling revelations , saying that match-fixing was common in Sri Lanka

    Sri Lanka President said that there were “Zero Civilians “in brutal the Sri Lanka War but UN report estimate that there were 40000 innocent Hindus were killed by indiscriminate Sri Lanka Government Shelling

    The Sri Lanka President lied !!!

    So lying, cheating and match fixing is a norm in morally bankrupt Sri Lanka

  311. Rip Van Winkle ! Says: April 29th, 2011 at 3:59 am,Please do educate me

    Buddhist Sinhala extremists in Sri Lanka are very much like the Nazi regime that preached hatred against the Jewish people, and the rulers of Sri Lanka are like reincarnations of Hitler because they are doing exactly what Hitler did sixty five years ago.
    Tamils in Sri Lanka haven’t yet found the freedom that they have been longing for years. They are still like Jews that were in the hands of Hitler and Bosnian Muslims who were persecuted by Serbian extremists.

    As the cries of dying women and children were shaking the earth, Sri Lankan military used maximum fire power to kill several thousands Tamils every single day. While the wounded were crying for water to wet their tongues, military tanks rolled over them. Wounded and the sick who were hiding in the bunkers were buried alive. Those who surrendered with white flags were executed in cold blood. Petrol and chemicals were poured over the tents and dead bodies.

    Sri Lanka has now deceived the western countries and revealed its true face. Sri Lanka lied to the whole world that it was conducting a war with surgical strikes and “Zero Civilian Causalities”. It also denied that heavy weapons were used against civilians.
    Torture, murder, rape and all kind of human right violations in the concentrations camps of Sri Lanka, were sending shock waves across the world. Deportations of Western reporters, journalists and politicians from the Sri Lankan Airport and denial of access to the death camps of Sri Lanka for aid workers were showing the face of rebellious country that is willing go to any extent to defy international humanitarian laws.

    We have millions of evidences to prove that a systematic genocide is taking place in Sri Lanka while the Nations are watching. Neither UN nor any other world power is being able to stop the madness that is still going on in this country.

  312. Accountability is vital as impunity breeds contempt.

    The war is over but Tamils are still terrorized by the Repressive Rajapaksa Regime

    Tamils in the North and East are dragged to Colombo in coaches to force them to protests against the UN Panel report.

    The Sri Lanka army has threatened civilians with consequences if they do not join the protest marches.

    The minorities are made to be subservient to the interests of the majority.

    With army and police are from the mono-ethnic Sinhalese majority minorities cannot complain to any neutral body to seek justice.

    It makes it vital that minorities are given an independent power sharing mechanism to manage their affairs locally without having to travel 300 km in up to 12 hours.

    Dubious Asian Tribune website and its editor
    http://www.weeklyblitz.net/554/dubious-asian-tribune-website-and-its-editor

    Rip Van Winkle , I never brought Asian Tribune as evident of war crime, I Know he is paid employee of GOSL.

    The man behind Asian Tribune lies – K.T.Rajasingham, a failed tamil politician from Thailand
    Asian Tribune online web blog is often popular for twisting news and closely working with Sri Lankan Intelligence establishment & its paramilitary outfit like Karuna Group. The main behind this secret operation is Mr.K.T.Rajasingham, a failed tamil politician currently based in Thailand (House No: 8/6, Muban Amoronpan Nakorn, Sukapibal Road 2, Suan Siam, Bangok 10230, Thailand) and who is also alleged to be on the pay list of Sri Lanka.
    http://www.tamilsydney.com/content/view/178/37/

  314. Namaste.

    I also want to address the whole ‘Sri Lanka wouldn’t have the UN trying to prosecute them of war crimes if they were in the good books of the US and UK’ argument that Rip Van Winkle and some other supporters of mahinda have been bringing.

    First of all, the US only helped Sri Lanka as the Sri Lankan government was lying through their teeth as to what they were actually doing, which was ethnic cleansing. Basically they managed to deceive the international community into thinking that there were absolutely no civilian casualties, despite the fact that the number of innocent Tamils government forces killed reached well into the hundreds of thousands. The US along with some other countries of the international community believing this lie actually points to their incompetence as they should have thought to themselves why mahinda and his thugs are preventing the media from operating in the conflict areas (not the Sri Lankan media of course, which has been rendered powerless by mahinda and his thugs, I mean international media/independent journalists), if he has nothing to hide.

    The US stopped helping Sri Lanka as soon as it heard of what was actually going on.

    The only possibility of mahinda and his thugs being in the ‘good books’ of the US and the UK is if he were not a racist, which is not the case. The sole reason why he can’t get in the ‘good books’ of the US and the UK is because of the fact that he’s conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils, which the US, UK and any other sensible human being would obviously be against.

    So don’t bring such flawed arguments.

    He was detained by the Terrorism Investigation Department (TID) since May 2009.

  316. The transparent investigation into Sri Lanka’s war crimes comes from those claiming to back ‘reconciliation’. However, reconciliation Rajapaksa style is a complete misnomer.
    The comic nature of an Orwellian state is embodied in Sri Lanka today. Tamils are press ganged by the police into signing a petition against a UN investigation. Tamil children are being forced to sing the national anthem in Sinhalese. Sri Lanka expands its military in times of peace, as its army holds an iron grip of terror over Tamil areas. Stories of land and house being appropriated and handed out to Sinhala citizens are rife, but of course foreign journalists are prevented from going to those parts of Sri Lanka. Tamil citizens continue after the war to ‘disappear’ and mangled tortured bodies continue to surface.
    Foreign projects to help the war battered Tamil community are effectively stifled by the Sri Lankan state. And its independent media continues its self-censorship with little reporting of the persecution of the Tamil population. And the state sends former generals to foreign capitals to sell its ‘successful war on terror’ which massacred over 40,000 Tamil civilians. It would be unbelievable fiction, if it tragically wasn’t happening to real people. To dislike, Tamils or Sinhalese is to be racist, but to dislike Sri Lanka is to stand against a value system that is no different to acting against a Nazi Germany, Hutu Rwanda or any other fascist state. Time for an international boycott of Sri Lanka on all fronts – sport, commerce and politics.

  317. Sri Lanka war-crime alleged over killing of TECH Director
    http://www.tamilnet.com/art.html?catid=13&artid=33881
    Mr. Suhunan had phoned his family last on 18 May, 2009 at 6:15 a.m. local time, informing that he was among a group of persons in civil clothes, going into Sri Lanka Army (SLA) controlled territory in Mullaiththeevu.

    Knowingly or unknowingly, we have all been witnessing one of the darkest chapters in humanity, now being written by the blood of innocent civilians in a land that was once known as Pearl of the Indian Ocean. The ugliest part of this chapter is not what was happened to the innocents but the response from the civilised world that had so far failed miserably to save the lives, although it had the power to act.

  318. Extensive forensic investigations of the Mullivaikal massacre sites have not been carried out systematically to identify the bodies and bury them appropriately. That area has been out of bounds to its inhabitants except the Sri Lankan military to enable them to clean up the land. We still do not know what the Sri Lankan army has done to the bodies. Is there a combined memorial or a mortuary in Mullivaikal for the dead?

    The memory of Mullivaikal’s dead men women and children was kept alive by the surviving victims. They will continue to raise the memory at all international forums and will not rest until the truth is revealed.
    http://www.southasiaanalysis.org/%5Cpapers45%5Cpaper4456.html

    A distinguished panel of reasonable people with no ethno-religious axe to grind in the Sri Lankan quagmire have called for an investigation. If Sri Lanka has no blood on its hands why not agree for such an international investigation to bring a closure to this tragedy. We repeat- Let the truth be told.

    Namaste brother.

    You know what’s even uglier? How Ban Ki-Moon is more concerned about being elected for a second term than preventing the Sri Lankan government from conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils, which is the kind of thing that he has been elected to do. Why would any nation want to elect him for a second term when he failed (and is continuing to fail) to do what he was elected to do in his first term?

    I feel sorry for Moon for placing more importance on materialistic things like money and power instead of helping prevent the ethnic cleansing of Tamils in Sri Lanka which has already consumed hundreds of thousands of innocent Tamils’ lives.

  320. Sri Lanka Army killed Tamil NGO

    C. Sivalingam Suhunan, alias Thilak, the executive director of TECH (The Economic Consultancy House), the flagship development NGO was killed by Sri Lanka Army

    Indeed I agree that you need to prove beyond absolute doubt and neither you nor I can do it. That's why we try to rely on the statements made by people who were in there and it is no rocket science that in such situation, people would make up stories too – depending on their loyalty. Just like we are arguing now. But, as humans, have the power to logically think and put one and one together by looking at past experiences. We cannot compare Rajapakse government to the other governments that was there in the past. Ex. in 87, when Wadamarachchi operation was in place during Hon. J.R. J's time, there were many more casualties because Major Kobbekaduwa was ruthless – lucky India was there to save Prabha.

    You talk of Kana, Daya and George lying for the government and I can tell you the same thing about Rayappu Joseph…. May Be he is lying for the LTTE – we know that he was on the pay-pack of the LTTE. May be it is he who is lying.

    Also, 2008 figures would make no sense because I know for a fact that some of the people there moved to other areas as well – though the war ended – the people in Colombo took their loved ones over here when they knew that the war was not that OK – So, if we check the Stats in Colombo, you might see an increase in the Tamil population since 2008 which would be close to the number you say are missing in the north.

    As I and Mango clearly have mentioned many a times, there indeed will be people who had seen people getting killed in the cross fire where the shot was initiated at the SLA end – cummon, it cannot happen with zero casualties – we all agree on that. But, at the same time, you and I as much as the rest of the world did see LTTE carders firing at Civilians who tried to escape to government control areas. In addition, we know that LTTE did kill the Tamils who opposed them in cold blood. Hence, we cannot rule out the fact of this being the truth and that there is some kind of truth in what Kana says. Logically thinking. So, if you are ruling out the possibilities of it happening, you are no better than the government of SL saying there were zero casualties. Hence, if you take that stance, logically, I cannot expect the GOSL to change their word.

    Let's not talk numbers again – cause it is a mess… You guys still need to discuss among yourselves and arrive at one figure you think of portraying to the world – the disagreement among your selves in this regard proves it is baseless.

    Mass Graves – I think I replied – You cannot hide 100,000 + bodies anywhere without being detected – 500 – May be – 100 Yes. 100,000 Mass grave would be visible for any Satellite image and we all know that those eyes were always watching. There is no requirement to check on the ground for graves of such mass capacity. We are talking acres.

    Machan – we both can read many eyewitness accounts on the web and papers etc. But, you will believe Joseph, while I will believe Kana. That's the difference – But, in my case, I have actually spoken face to face with some and that picture is close to Kana's report than Josephs report. This is where you and I would disagree.

    The sad truth is that because of the idiocy of Prabha, Mahinda will not only win, but, will win with Massive margins all elections that are held in SL for the next 10 years. There should be some dramatic change for it to not happen and that is defa not UN or International intervention. It should be another winning the trust of the Sri Lankans and that Stupid Ranil W is not making it easy either – People want Sajith and he will be the only person who could give a close fight.

    I am sure that your witness saw some being killed by the SLA, I never deny that fact – but, what we need to understand is the Motive behind the whole operation and not a singled out death of an innocent man – who for all you know would have got shot because he was part of the human shield that protected a retarded bastard. In that sense, it is the retard who needs to be responsible and not the SLA.

    Machan, I for once don't believe that Mahinda is a racist because he has Tamils married in to his family. If they were, you never would have seen such thing happening. Also, he could be a good Buddhist, but, not a fanatic – why ? his wife is a catholic. Very hard to believe that a radical person (like Wimal or Champika) would do the same.

    I join you in crying out for democracy in SL – But, it is defa not the democracy I saw in the North under Prabha 2 years back – If you call that democracy, there would be no point in continuing this conversation… Do we agree on that machan?

    If they actually cared for the Tamils, they would have not provoked a few Sinhala Idiots to go on a killing sphere in 83. However, with this killing they managed to get international attention – but to get that attention, they paved way by getting their own people killed – so, is that correct ??? This is why I say that Prapha always had other motives and not the interest of Tamils in mind.

    Machan – there are no more camps – all are home (unless those who did not have a place or person to go to). Tell me another country that would provide such people free shelter, meals and medicine. Machan, we both can get together and bash the GOSL with many things, but, common, give some credit to the fellas where it is required.

What would determine whether it is sooner or later is that ordinary people like you and me agreeing on something and building our trust and a friendly relationship from there on.

    The fact is that government forces prevented medical supplies from reaching the injured innocents. Both UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working in the conflict areas (some of whom were attacked by the government forces: http://www.channel4.com/news/sri-lanka-war-crimes… ) attest to this.

    Alfred Duraiappa was killed as despite being a Tamil, he was only making the discrimination faced by Tamils at the hands of the Sinhalese worse. Did the LTTE kill S.J.V. Selvanayagam? Who headed a non-violent Gandhian struggle in the 1940s to bring a political solution to Tamils (without dividing the country)? No, because he was working for the Tamils.

    Kadiragamar was yet another Tamil who was only making the discrimination faced by Tamils worse, for instance by criticising people who revealed government forces killing innocent civilians, despite there being overwhelming evidence.

    I know for a fact that here are still hundreds of thousands of innocent Tamils who are being held in concentration camps in the war torn areas to this day. I know people who have been unable to get their family out of the camps, so please don't lie.

    The camps are called 'concentration camps' for a reason. There is no food or medical care. Thousands of innocent men, women and children die everyday. I know people who had to endure these conditions, so again, please don't lie.

    Sri Lanka is not developing. It has GREAT potential to develop, but it's being held back by the extreme incompetence and corruption of mahinda and his thugs. Hyperinflation, steady decline in the value of the Sri Lankan Rupee, steadily falling living conditions along with steadily widening income gaps are not signs of development.

    There is absolutely no hatred in me, for any being. However, those responsible for the ethnic cleansing of Tamils going on in Sri Lanka (mahinda, basil, gotabaya, their thugs and the government forces) need to be prosecuted and punished. Reconciliation can only happen once this happens and Tamils are given freedom, equality and democracy.

  330. The 2002 Peace Pocess negotiated between then Sri Lanka Government and the LTTE with Norway supported by the IC with a loan/aid package of $ 4.5 million with aim of reconstructing the devastated north and east and rehabilitation of its people finally ended in a nullity BUT all the money must be disbursed by Sri Lanka Government.

    Not a single $ had been accounted for publicly yet as far as known. Perhaps the ongoing LLRC appointed by the present Government in what appears to be as a rejoinder to the UN Advisory Panel.

    What is known is that under cover of the Peace Proces Sri Lanka Army appeared to have armed themselves.

    Enter the Rajapakse Government of President Rajapakse in Sept. 2005 on a war front with the JVP and they were elected by a narrow majority.

    The Peace Process was rudely disrupted and annulled by new Rajapaksa Government

    The rest is recent history.

    Only the UN in its collective wisdom can find a durable solution to what has become a totally intractable politico-socio national problem shorn altogether of justice.

  331. So the Sri Lankan Tamils as well as the Refugees around the World are CAUGHT BETWEEN THE DEVIL AND THE DEEP SEA.

    The Globalised Capital that transformed into Globalised Establishments is fast multiplying the Refugees around the World due to its inability to meet the internal contradictions as well as the collective contradictions with the Environment.

    Namaste.

    Every single person who witnessed the war who isn't a puppet to the rajapaksa government accuses the government forces of abducting, torturing, raping and killing innocent Tamils. Even these puppets would speak the truth if their safety was guaranteed and/or the rajapaksa government cut them off the government payroll.

    The only people making up stories 'depending on their loyalty' are the rajapaksa government's puppets. If the Tamils who witnessed the war are 'making up stories' as you say, their stories wouldn't be lining up perfectly with what the UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working in the conflict areas during the war experienced.

    The amount of Tamils killed under the rajapaksa government is much, much more than during the rule of any other president, the number continues to rise as there are Tamils being killed in the present as well, despite the war being over for almost two years now.

    Like I said before, I know people who witnessed the war, every single one of them told me that the government forces did not spare a single ex-LTTE member unless they were willing to become puppets for the government. I know people who were in the concentration camps and they tell me that anyone who admits that he had ties to the LTTE is immediately dragged off and executed unless they are willing to become puppets for the government. If you think Rayappu Joseph is on the payroll of an organisation which no longer exists in Sri Lanka, you're delusional.

    I also know people who were in the Vanni during the conflict, some of whom lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had any ties to the LTTE) and both groups of people agree with Rayappu Joseph's account.

    During the war it was impossible for people to 'move to other areas' as they wished. The roads were blocked off, the seas patrolled by the navy and anyone trying to flee was shot down by government forces. 'The people in Colombo took their loved ones over here' as you say never happened because of this. After the war, the people who weren't killed by the government forces were put in concentration camps. It was only at this point that you could go collect family and/or friends. I know the procedure as I know people who went through it.

    I never denied that the LTTE killed civilians. I always said that while the LTTE did kill civilians, as evidence shows, the rajapaksa government killed more innocent civilians than the LTTE did during their entire existence.

    As I said before, no one other than the rajapaksa government knows how many innocent Tamils the government forces killed as independent investigations are not allowed. But the number is definitely in the hundreds of thousands.

    As for the mass graves, please read my previous comment again. Burial isn't the only way of disposing of the bodies. I'm leaning towards mass cremation as it would be faster, cheaper and more effective at hiding the evidence. Oh and you don't need acres to bury 100,000 bodies.

    I know many people who were living in the war torn areas during the war and witnessed with their very eyes the government forces killing innocent Tamils. Some of these people have also lost family and friends themselves to the government forces (despite never having had ties to the LTTE), so I'm not going by 'eyewitness accounts on the web and papers'. Please read my comments properly before replying to them.

    Who exactly have you spoken to who experienced the war? From your past comments you've clearly shown how you have little to no knowledge of the war (such as not knowing even the procedure involved in getting family and friends out of the war torn areas). You are either lying or the people you are speaking to haven't witnessed the same war we are talking about.

    Unless there is foreign intervention and mahinda is overthrown, Sri Lankans educated on what democracy is and a fully democratic government providing freedom, equality and democracy to all Sri Lankans is instilled, Sri Lanka will never have democracy.

    'Your witness'? I know over hundred people who witnessed the government forces just massacring innocent Tamils (and no, they weren't being used as human shields). Every single one of these people agree that the UN claim of government forces killing only 40,000 civilians is not even scratching the surface.

    As for your human shield comment, you can't simply kill an innocent person who's being used as a shield against his/her will. If the government forces killed anyone being used as human shields, it's the fault of the government forces.

    mahinda is a racist. Like I said before, there is no other reason otherwise for the ethnic cleansing of Tamils happening in Sri Lanka.

    Like I said before, the only thing that was preventing mahinda from conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils was the resistance, the LTTE. Now that the LTTE no longer exists, mahinda and his thugs abduct, torture, rape and kill innocent Tamils as they wish.

    prabhakaran was not democratic, but there sure were less Tamils being killed when he was alive.

  333. Sri Lankan Government said that once the LTTE is defeated everything will be OK.

    Also the Singhalese people should know that no Sri Lankan Goverment at any time offered any solution for the LTTE to consider.

    Now to say LTTE never accepted any solution is a fallacy and cheating the entire world.

    Look at the Government’s own Chief Minister of Eastern Province.

    He is complaining of not having any powers.

    Rajapaksa Government does not want to implement what is law.

    Shameful leaders?

    If a proper political solution is not agreed another form of LTTE will emerge again.

    THE ONLY SOLUTION ACCEPTABLE TO RAJAPAKSA GOVERNMENT IS TO PUT ALL TAMILS IN A GAS CHAMBER AND BURN THEM ALIVE.(GAS CHAMBERS WERE BUILT BY RUSSIA, IRAN, CHINA AND BURMA)

    PROBLEM SOLVED.

  336. Unprecedented savagery of the Sinhalese

    The savagery exposed in the killings seen in videos and tortured corpses must be a big burden to the Sinhalese.

    The inevitable question the Sinhalese will ask themselves, albeit silently behind the outward invective bravado, that what in the Sinhala culture that allowed one of them to mutilate, inflict unprecedented savagery on another human being even if we assume this human being is one of the worst. This will haunt the Sinhala race for eons to come, war-crimes or not.

    Indeed I agree that you need to prove beyond absolute doubt and neither you nor I can do it. That’s why we try to rely on the statements made by people who were in there and it is no rocket science that in such situation, people would make up stories too – depending on their loyalty. Just like we are arguing now. But, as humans, have the power to logically think and put one and one together by looking at past experiences. We cannot compare Rajapakse government to the other governments that was there in the past. Ex. in 87, when Wadamarachchi operation was in place during Hon. J.R. J’s time, there were many more casualties because Major Kobbekaduwa was ruthless – lucky India was there to save Prabha.

    You talk of Kana, Daya and George lying for the government and I can tell you the same thing about Rayappu Joseph…. May Be he is lying for the LTTE – we know that he was on the pay-pack of the LTTE. May be it is he who is lying.

    Also, 2008 figures would make no sense because I know for a fact that some of the people there moved to other areas as well – though the war ended – the people in Colombo took their loved ones over here when they knew that the war was not that OK – So, if we check the Stats in Colombo, you might see an increase in the Tamil population since 2008 which would be close to the number you say are missing in the north.

    As I and Mango clearly have mentioned many a times, there indeed will be people who had seen people getting killed in the cross fire where the shot was initiated at the SLA end – cummon, it cannot happen with zero casualties – we all agree on that. But, at the same time, you and I as much as the rest of the world did see LTTE carders firing at Civilians who tried to escape to government control areas. In addition, we know that LTTE did kill the Tamils who opposed them in cold blood. Hence, we cannot rule out the fact of this being the truth and that there is some kind of truth in what Kana says. Logically thinking. So, if you are ruling out the possibilities of it happening, you are no better than the government of SL saying there were zero casualties. Hence, if you take that stance, logically, I cannot expect the GOSL to change their word.

    Let’s not talk numbers again – cause it is a mess… You guys still need to discuss among yourselves and arrive at one figure you think of portraying to the world – the disagreement among your selves in this regard proves it is baseless.

    Mass Graves – I think I replied – You cannot hide 100,000 + bodies anywhere without being detected – 500 – May be – 100 Yes. 100,000 Mass grave would be visible for any Satellite image and we all know that those eyes were always watching. There is no requirement to check on the ground for graves of such mass capacity. We are talking acres.

    Machan – we both can read many eyewitness accounts on the web and papers etc. But, you will believe Joseph, while I will believe Kana. That’s the difference – But, in my case, I have actually spoken face to face with some and that picture is close to Kana’s report than Josephs report. This is where you and I would disagree.

    The sad truth is that because of the idiocy of Prabha, Mahinda will not only win, but, will win with Massive margins all elections that are held in SL for the next 10 years.

    Namaste.

    Every single person who witnessed the war who isn’t a puppet to the rajapaksa government accuses the government forces of abducting, torturing, raping and killing innocent Tamils. Even these puppets would speak the truth if their safety was guaranteed and/or the rajapaksa government cut them off the government payroll.

    The only people making up stories ‘depending on their loyalty’ are the rajapaksa government’s puppets. If the Tamils who witnessed the war are ‘making up stories’ as you say, their stories wouldn’t be lining up perfectly with what the UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working in the conflict areas during the war experienced.

    The amount of Tamils killed under the rajapaksa government is much, much more than during the rule of any other president, the number continues to rise as there are Tamils being killed in the present as well, despite the war being over for almost two years now.

    Like I said before, I know people who witnessed the war, every single one of them told me that the government forces did not spare a single ex-LTTE member unless they were willing to become puppets for the government. I know people who were in the concentration camps and they tell me that anyone who admits that he had ties to the LTTE is immediately dragged off and executed unless they are willing to become puppets for the government. If you think Rayappu Joseph is on the payroll of an organisation which no longer exists in Sri Lanka, you’re delusional.

    I also know people who were in the Vanni during the conflict, some of whom lost family and friends to government forces (despite never having had any ties to the LTTE) and both groups of people agree with Rayappu Joseph’s account.

    During the war it was impossible for people to ‘move to other areas’ as they wished. The roads were blocked off, the seas patrolled by the navy and anyone trying to flee was shot down by government forces. ‘The people in Colombo took their loved ones over here’ as you say never happened because of this. After the war, the people who weren’t killed by the government forces were put in concentration camps. It was only at this point that you could go collect family and/or friends. I know the procedure as I know people who went through it.

    I never denied that the LTTE killed civilians. I always said that while the LTTE did kill civilians, as evidence shows, the rajapaksa government killed more innocent civilians than the LTTE did during their entire existence.

    As I said before, no one other than the rajapaksa government knows how many innocent Tamils the government forces killed as independent investigations are not allowed. But the number is definitely in the hundreds of thousands.

    As for the mass graves, please read my previous comment again. Burial isn’t the only way of disposing of the bodies. I’m leaning towards mass cremation as it would be faster, cheaper and more effective at hiding the evidence. Oh and you don’t need acres to bury 100,000 bodies.

    I know many people who were living in the war torn areas during the war and witnessed with their very eyes the government forces killing innocent Tamils. Some of these people have also lost family and friends themselves to the government forces (despite never having had ties to the LTTE), so I’m not going by ‘eyewitness accounts on the web and papers’. Please read my comments properly before replying to them.

    Who exactly have you spoken to who experienced the war? From your past comments you’ve clearly shown how you have little to no knowledge of the war (such as not knowing even the procedure involved in getting family and friends out of the war torn areas). You are either lying or the people you are speaking to haven’t witnessed the same war we are talking about.

    Unless there is foreign intervention and mahinda is overthrown, Sri Lankans educated on what democracy is and a fully democratic government providing freedom, equality and democracy to all Sri Lankans is instilled, Sri Lanka will never have democracy.

    ‘Your witness’? I know over hundred people who witnessed the government forces just massacring innocent Tamils (and no, they weren’t being used as human shields). Every single one of these people agree that the UN claim of government forces killing only 40,000 civilians is not even scratching the surface.

    As for your human shield comment, you can’t simply kill an innocent person who’s being used as a shield against his/her will. If the government forces killed anyone being used as human shields, it’s the fault of the government forces.

    mahinda is a racist. Like I said before, there is no other reason otherwise for the ethnic cleansing of Tamils happening in Sri Lanka.

    Like I said before, the only thing that was preventing mahinda from conducting ethnic cleansing of Tamils was the resistance, the LTTE. Now that the LTTE no longer exists, mahinda and his thugs abduct, torture, rape and kill innocent Tamils as they wish.

    prabhakaran was not democratic, but there sure were less Tamils being killed when he was alive.

  347. Sri Lankan Government said that once the LTTE is defeated everything will be OK.

    Also the Singhalese people should know that no Sri Lankan Goverment at any time offered any solution for the LTTE to consider.

    Now to say LTTE never accepted any solution is a fallacy and cheating the entire world.

    Look at the Government’s own Chief Minister of Eastern Province.

    He is complaining of not having any powers.

    Rajapaksa Government does not want to implement what is law.

    Shameful leaders?

    If a proper political solution is not agreed another form of LTTE will emerge again.

    THE ONLY SOLUTION ACCEPTABLE TO RAJAPAKSA GOVERNMENT IS TO PUT ALL TAMILS IN A GAS CHAMBER AND BURN THEM ALIVE.(GAS CHAMBERS WERE BUILT BY RUSSIA, IRAN, CHINA AND BURMA)

    PROBLEM SOLVED.

    The fact is that government forces prevented medical supplies from reaching the injured innocents. Both UN and Red Cross aid workers who were working in the conflict areas (some of whom were attacked by the government forces: http://www.channel4.com/news/sri-lanka-war-crimes-is-srebrenica-moment ) attest to this.

    Alfred Duraiappa was killed as despite being a Tamil, he was only making the discrimination faced by Tamils at the hands of the Sinhalese worse. Did the LTTE kill S.J.V. Selvanayagam? Who headed a non-violent Gandhian struggle in the 1940s to bring a political solution to Tamils (without dividing the country)? No, because he was working for the Tamils.

    Kadiragamar was yet another Tamil who was only making the discrimination faced by Tamils worse, for instance by criticising people who revealed government forces killing innocent civilians, despite there being overwhelming evidence.

    I know for a fact that here are still hundreds of thousands of innocent Tamils who are being held in concentration camps in the war torn areas to this day. I know people who have been unable to get their family out of the camps, so please don’t lie.

    The camps are called ‘concentration camps’ for a reason. There is no food or medical care. Thousands of innocent men, women and children die everyday. I know people who had to endure these conditions, so again, please don’t lie.

    Sri Lanka is not developing. It has GREAT potential to develop, but it’s being held back by the extreme incompetence and corruption of mahinda and his thugs. Hyperinflation, steady decline in the value of the Sri Lankan Rupee, steadily falling living conditions along with steadily widening income gaps are not signs of development.

    There is absolutely no hatred in me, for any being. However, those responsible for the ethnic cleansing of Tamils going on in Sri Lanka (mahinda, basil, gotabaya, their thugs and the government forces) need to be prosecuted and punished. Reconciliation can only happen once this happens and Tamils are given freedom, equality and democracy.

    Please read my comment again. The US stopped helping Sri Lanka as soon as it knew of the ethnic cleansing of Tamils that the government forces were conducting, which was after the war had ended.

    The majority of the training for the government forces was provided by pakistan, not the USA.

  349. Unprecedented savagery of the Sinhalese

    The savagery exposed in the killings seen in videos and tortured corpses must be a big burden to the Sinhalese.

    The inevitable question the Sinhalese will ask themselves, albeit silently behind the outward invective bravado, that what in the Sinhala culture that allowed one of them to mutilate, inflict unprecedented savagery on another human being even if we assume this human being is one of the worst. This will haunt the Sinhala race for eons to come, war-crimes or not.

  352. @Aryacakravarti: Wow, so many accusations, I'm surprised that you haven't accused Mahinda of eating Tamil babies for breakfast.

    The problem you must grapple with this is as follows: this was a vicious, no-holds barred 30 year war/counter-insurgency. Innocent people die. It's a fact of counter-insrugency wars. Tamils, Sinhalese, Muslims, Burghers and dogs and cats died. Lots of innocents died in JVP 1, JVP 2 and Eelam Wars 1-4. The LTTE chose to return to war in 2006 and in Mahinda, Gota and Fonseka they met their match.

    "Thousands of innocent men, women and children die everyday."/ So, by simple arithmetic, there can't be any Tamils left anywhere on the island, which patently is NOT the case. I'm sorry for your loss but remember, not a single family in SL has escaped the loss of loved ones. Your losses aren't special.

    Ethnic cleansing? Ah, that was an LTTE speciality, no? The victims of the only genuine, certified cases of ethnic cleansing in SL, carried out by the LTTE (and supported by the pro-LTTE diaspora), were the Eastern Muslims, currently being re-settled in Madhu.

    Kadiragamar above all, managed to get the LTTE banned in the West, by proving to those idiots it was just another terrorist group. For this, the LTTE killed him. Just like they killed Rajiv Ghandi after he lost his fervour for Eelam.

    The biggest barrier to SL's development wasn't political corruption, but the endless war. War is bad for business. Reconciliation won't be helped when the losers try to prosecute the winners for war crimes.

    The SL govt forces didn't need any training from the US — what could the US teach? Carpet bombing? Drone attacks? The US and others supplied lots of lovely intel, which helped to destroy the LTTE weapons ships.

    I'm amazed to realise that the LTTE were not a highly effective, heavily armed terrorist group which gloried in the deaths of civilians, but a benign and heavily armed social services charity.! Gimme a break. :)

    United Nations report indicates Sri Lanka committed war crimes http://srilanka-videos.blogspot.com/2011/04/unite

    It is difficult to finds words to describe the horror that happened in the last few days of the war. Thousands were forced into a tiny strip of land. Men, women and children were hiding inside the bunkers without food and water. Sri Lankan military was firing from Tanks and multi barrel rocket launchers, in all the directions. Phosphorous and cluster bombs were dropped from the skies.
    As the cries of dying women and children were shaking the earth, Sri Lankan military used maximum fire power to kill several thousands Tamils every single day. While the wounded were crying for water to wet their tongues, military tanks rolled over them. Wounded and the sick who were hiding in the bunkers were buried alive. Those who surrendered with white flags were executed in cold blood. Petrol and chemicals were poured over the tents and dead bodies.

    Generations come and generations go. Life becomes better and better for many people in the world. But the Tamils, whose standard of living was better than Singaporeans and South Koreans forty years ago, are now living below the poverty line. They now wander like vagabonds as many have lost their homes.

  355. Crisis Group possesses credible evidence that is sufficient to warrant an independent international investigation of the following allegations:

    The intentional shelling of civilians. Starting in late January, the government and security forces encouraged hundreds of thousands of civilians to move into ever smaller government-declared No Fire Zones (NFZs) and then subjected them to repeated and increasingly intense artillery and mortar barrages and other fire. This continued through May despite the government and security forces knowing the size and location of the civilian population and scale of civilian casualties.
    The intentional shelling of hospitals. The security forces shelled hospitals and makeshift medical centres – many overflowing with the wounded and sick – on multiple occasions even though they knew of their precise locations and functions. During these incidents, medical staff, the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and others continually informed the government and security forces of the shelling, yet they continued to strike medical facilities through May forcing civilians to abandon them.
    The intentional shelling of humanitarian operations. Despite knowing the exact location of humanitarian operations and food distribution points, the security forces repeatedly shelled these areas, which were crowded with humanitarian workers, vehicles and supplies, and civilians. Many were killed or wounded trying to deliver or receive basic humanitarian assistance, including women, children and infants. http://www.crisisgroup.org/en/regions/asia/south-

    Again Sri Lanka has been deliberately and repeatedly lying about the number of Tamil civilians in the war zone. It insists that there are only 70,000 people in the war zone while the ICRC and UN aid agencies have been saying that there are between 200,000 and 250, 000 people in the war zone.

    Finally what happened, 300,000 were in the concentration camps, 100,000 still missing.

    China said Saturday that it believes the Sri Lankan government and people will handle properly problems conerning its civil war and urged the international community not to complicate the issue. http://www.topix.com/forum/world/sri-lanka/TQ83G6
    Without that Chinese backing, Rajapaska’s government would have had neither the wherewithal nor the will to ignore world opinion in its offensive against the Tigers. So, not only has China become central to every aspect of the global financial and economic system, it has now demonstrated its strategic effectiveness in a region traditionally outside its orbit. On Sri Lanka’s beachfront battlefields, China’s “peaceful rise” was completed.
