Injustice and Inequality in an unfair world

Life is not fair” is a phrase that always echoes in the far corners of this Earth. A fifteen year old boy may have to work sixteen hours a day, in a poor African country just to get one meal a day for his sick mother and five siblings. This may not be the case in many other places in the world. Even the rulers of some poor countries, could be using gold plated toilets and marble baths while the poor hunt for bread crumps in rubbish dumps.

We are now so used to living with other people money without any shame. Resources on this earth are not distributed fairly among its inhabitants. We have built intelligent systems to steal, what belongs to others. Our banks no longer focus much on their traditional roles, instead they employ rocket scientists to build sophisticated gambling machines in order to rob the poor and give to the rich.

Corrupt regimes, can to some extent be blamed for the misery of people in their lands. Instead of setting the people free from such regimes, some of the big players use this as an opportunity to exploit the vulnerable people for their own selfish gains.

Value of life is not the same in every country. When the twin towers fell and three thousands perished, we all knelt down and wept. The whole world came to a stop for few minutes. We declared “War on Terror” against each and every single armed group in the world, including the ones that are genuinely fighting to free their communities from oppressive governments. Hands of the oppressed were tied and the weapons were given to many corrupt Nations. This is what we call Justice today.

Four hundred thousands were slaughtered in Darfur, Eight hundred thousands perished in Rwanda because the terror regimes in these countries were driven by ignorance and greed. No leader in the world declared “War on Genocide” even after seeing millions of deaths. Instead, some of the world powers aided genocide in these poor countries.

Although, the world media still stick with the figure of seventy thousands, the actual number of people, perished in the Sri Lankan civil war is around three hundred thousands. Fifty thousands were killed just within a short period of time in the recent war in Sri Lanka.

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.

Security Council no longer agree on any decisions that are vital to save the vulnerable and oppressed people on this earth. Permanent members use their Veto powers just to cover their own dirt and to protect the other bullies in their club.

Our parliamentarians are hanging on to their positions and they are forced to sort out their expense claims to keep their jobs. Leaders of some powerful nations are not being able to focus on the real issues because they are chased after, to give explanations for things they did when they were teenagers. Senior staffs in the UN no longer have the freedom to do what is right. They have to dance according to the tunes played by their masters who have conflicting interests. It has now become a common practice that the leaders in the UN and top diplomats speak the truth only after their retirement.

We have robust systems in place, to protect the criminals and torment the victims. Our legal systems are so advanced that diplomats and politicians have to think hundred times, before making any comments. Just to make life easier, they keep their mouths shut even at times it is important to speak out.

Even during a humanitarian crisis, our leaders would still act like electronic parrots who can only repeat the same recorded words that would comply with national and international laws, just to make sure that they hang on to their jobs. The world is dying for leaders who can at least use their basic common sense to help the persecuted people on this planet.

We talk about political correctness. We are very concerned about little things but we turn a deaf ear, when the real-world calamities strike the mankind. We are planning to stop using Christmas lights in our towns because we think it will offend people from other religions. We are supposed to write “Traces of Nuts” on peanut packets. Doctors have to break their heads before writing prescriptions, because most of the drugs have side affects. They will be sued if something goes wrong. We have been very successful in sending many talented doctors, writers and politicians to the prisons and letting the criminals to roam around our cities.

Praising the Sri Lankan regime for slaughtering thousands of innocents and letting the Tamils to languish in the concentration camps is another example that we have become real hypocrites and jokers who have bigger mouths, smaller brains and corrupt souls. Playing cricket with a country that is flowing with the blood of the innocent men, women and children, shows that we no longer have any moral principles to guide our lives. We are now even quite comfortable to sit and have tea with a Hannibal while his hands are still stained with the blood and his room is filled with the stink of rotting human flesh.

UN Staffs along with the Sri Lankan leaders were happy to fly over the killing fields and blood stained beaches of Sri Lanka, while having their hands on knives and forks.

 


Emerging powers are turning into blood sucking leeches

The so called emerging superpowers are turning themselves into blood sucking leeches. Nobody can deny that these great nations have security concerns and they have to find a way to feed their own people. That doesn’t mean that they have God given right to slaughter the innocents in third world countries by giving support to the brutal regimes.

We teach our children to share everything because it is always a sensible and the right thing to do. Unfortunately, the great powers in the world still haven’t grasped the idea that gold in the lands and oil in the seas can also be shared. One might be able to forgive, when a country steals the resources from another country but it is completely unacceptable when thousands of innocents are sacrificed at the feet of greedy and selfish giants for them to fill their Gold pots.

If my neighbour wants to kill his step children and dump them in his back garden, I wouldn’t give him my shot gun just because he is offering me a free parking space in his garage. I wouldn’t feed my own children with the strawberries growing on the graves of the innocent children. I wouldn’t be going for his barbecue parties. I wouldn’t play golf with such a murderer.

As a sensible human being, I would stop him from abusing his step children in the first place. I would call the police to save lives before it is too late. I would alert all my good neighbours about a tragedy unfolding in front of my own eyes.

What China and some other emerging powers do to the vulnerable people of this world is nothing different from an evil man who give a shot gun to his neighbour in order to get free parking space and strawberries growing on the graves of the dead children.

China supplied weapons and provided training to the fighter pilots in Sudan. China was giving interest free loans while the Sudan government was slaughtering thousands in Darfur. One doesn’t need to be rocket scientist to recognise that China was acting selfishly.

China was complicit in Genocide as Sudan had opened up its oil fields for this sleeping giant. Western countries raised their voices but nothing was done to stop the genocide. As usual, the UN also stood back and remained powerless until everything was over.

What happened in Darfur has now become a standard model for the big beasts to secure their strategic interests in many parts of the world. They try to find trouble spots in this world, identify the abusive strongman who is having an upper hand and make the oppressor happy by giving him the toys and tools that he enjoys the most.

More than fifty thousands innocent Tamil civilians were slaughtered on the sandy beaches and jungles of Sri Lanka with the weapons and unlimited ammunitions supplied by the Chinese government. Three hundred thousands are now locked up in barbed wired concentration camps.

UN and other international organisations have so far failed to break this cycle of crimes being committed by the superpowers in various parts of the world.

Exploiting someone’s weakness for their own benefit” is a simple phrase to describe the hell going on in Sri Lanka”. This is just like someone purposely creating a virus, spreading it and then selling the vaccines to make money. An internal conflict in Sri Lanka has now been made worse by its greedy neighbours. They are now lining up with spanners and hammers to fix the problems in Sri Lanka.

The way they are trying to fix it, is quite like how any selfish person would approach an issue. A genuine mediator might get bad name from either parties of a conflict by being fair on both sides. This is what happened to the Norwegian mediators in Sri Lanka. But the ones that are now trying to fix Sri Lanka are helping the strong party to the conflict to destroy the weaker one completely.

Cases are sometimes dropped in courts when the victims are dead or nobody is there to defend the victims. Helping Sri Lanka to kill the Tamils with deadly weapons and make them powerless is the strategy now being used by Sri Lanka and its greedy partners to deal with the conflict. Such method can’t be called as conflict resolution but it is an unfair conflict termination by eliminating one party to the conflict. This is almost like injecting poison and killing the patient to free him from sickness. This approach would enable the emerging superpowers to strengthen their ties with Sri Lanka and to carry on with their hidden agendas.

No country is willing to rescue the dying people in Sri Lanka. What is happening to the Tamils in Sri Lanka is not a fairy tale, not a film but it is a real story. They are real people. Cruelty against them is real. Deaths of the thousands are real and the ignorance and arrogance of the mankind are also real.

 


Masters of War and Silent Spectators

It has taken quite a while for many of us to understand, that what was happening in Sri Lanka was not “War on Terror”. If the war was just against the Tamil Rebels, the so called saviours of this country would have taken all the necessary steps to protect the vulnerable community once the war was over. Rulers of this land are still tormenting innocent Tamil men, women and children inside barbed wired concentration camps, even after crushing the Tamil rebels with the help of China, Pakistan and India. This has become a shocking revelation and eye opener for many parties who were initially supporting the war in Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka wants to weaken the Tamils in order to establish a Sinhala Buddhist State. China wants to build ports in the South of Sri Lanka for military and commercial purposes. India wants to neutralise the Chinese threats and to establish its rule in the Indian Ocean. Pakistan has got its own agendas, what an evil combination. They have all been competing with each other to satisfy a country that is determined to flush out all the Tamils.

Sri Lanka has now become a football ground for many countries and the rulers of this land are delighted to entertain the players. Every time a ball is kicked, it kills the innocents and the pitch gets flooded with the blood. Players don’t care about how many are dying because it is part of their evil game.

China and India were the main players in the recent Sri Lankan war. They are still in the pitch, kicking the air. When people were dying in thousands, even the West didn’t do anything to stop; instead we also stood back and watched. We were more interested in finding out who was going to win the game in the Indian Ocean instead of focusing on the humanitarian crisis.

UN has failed to stop the bloodshed. West has failed. All the so called Human Right organisations have failed.

 


India and its role in Sri Lankan war

India is a successful democracy with the population of 1.17 billion. So many different races, cultures, colours and religions live relatively peacefully. Most of the ethnic groups have their own States and every State in the country is given a degree of autonomy within this great Nation. People of India are mostly religious, hard working and non violent and they still maintain very strong traditional family values.

India hasn’t got a consistent foreign policy towards Sri Lanka. RAW which is the external intelligent agency in India has done great damage to Sri Lanka particularly to the Tamil community. India can't be fully blamed for this because the Sri Lankan regimes very often make unpredictable moves therefore India is forced to change its policies.

As any other intelligent agency, RAW has a legitimate responsibility to protect India from its enemies, by being proactive. However, India could have achieved its objectives without helping the Sri Lankan government to slaughter thousands of Tamils.

RAW provided military training to the Tamil rebels in the early eighties in order to challenge the Sri Lankan government that had closed links with the Western Countries including the US. Tamil youth were trained in different groups. RAW was also to some extent be responsible for fuelling enmity and competition between different Tamil organisations.

Contrary to what many people believe, it is Indian’s interest to maintain a troubled Sri Lanka than a peaceful nation for India to spread its wings in the region. Disturbance in Sri Lanka would give an excuse for India to keep its Navy in Sri Lankan waters.

Indian peace keeping forces and Tamil rebels fought an unfortunate war between 1987 and 1989. Around twelve hundreds Indian soldiers lost their lives and many thousands were wounded in Sri Lankan soil. This was a bitter experience for India.

From year 2001 until the start of war in 2007, India kept a distance from Sri Lanka, although activities were going on behind the scenes. India stopped supplying offensive weapons to the Sri Lankan military.

Indian involvement in recent Sri Lankan war was quite controversial. China and Pakistan provided with all the weapons and India provided the intelligence to the ground troops.

India was well capable of stopping the war but it failed to do it even when thousands of innocent men women and children were perishing in Vanni. Some Indian leaders made contradictory statements, pretending like they were after peace while pressing the “Attack” buttons on their remote controls.

India may have its concerns that Sri Lanka might become a launch pad for China and Pakistan in its own backyard. Letting the Tamils to die in the hands of the Sri Lankan forces was not an easy option for India either.

India has no enmity with the Tamils in Sri Lanka but it has made a historical blunder by supporting a corrupt Sri Lankan regime to commit genocide against the Tamils just to satisfy a racist Nation, so that it can secure its interest in the Indian Ocean.

Indian forces are now going to occupy the Vanni region with the excuse of clearing land mines.

Nation of India has unfortunately deviated from its principles and core values, it was originally built upon. India might build rockets to the moon and giant monuments reaching to the skies but India will not succeed if it corrupts its own soul by aiding Genocide in other countries.

India should dream of becoming a superpower not just by wealth and technology but also proving to the world as a defender and guardian of Human rights.

Cries of men, women and children, who died in Vanni, are still echoing in the thundering skies of Vanni. These voices will keep on haunting every Indian because India has blood on its hands.

 


China and its role in Sri Lankan War

China has a total population of 1.33 billion. It is an emerging superpower that manufactures 50% of the items that is used in an average household in the West.

In order to feed all its citizens, to have access to raw materials and energy and to protect its strategic interests, China obviously needs to maintain close relations with countries that have something to offer.

A country that crushed 3000 protesters by rolling tanks in Tinanamon square, China hasn't got a great reputation for human rights. If a country can't treat its own citizen’s well, we can't expect them to be concerned about people dying in other countries.

China has been very aggressive with its foreign policies in recent times. This sleeping giant has woken up and giving support to many corrupt regimes on earth to fulfil its agendas. Sadly, China has directly or indirectly aided genocide in many countries including Sudan and Sri Lanka.

Although, India provided the directions and intelligence for the Sri Lankan war, it was China that had given all the dangerous weapons and ammunitions to kill the Tamils in thousands.

Most of Tamils who died in Sri Lanka were killed by Chinese weapons. Sri Lanka has allowed China to build a controversial Port in the south of Sri Lanka.

Chinese intervention in Sri Lanka is not about defeating the Tamil rebels but to reward the country that had given the permission to build infrastructures in the strategically important Indian Ocean.

Indian intervention in Sri Lankan war is more to do with stopping Sri Lanka going in the hands of other countries, than defeating the Tamil rebels.

In summary, neither China nor India was keen on killing the Tamils. Just like China supported the Sudanese government to commit genocide in Darfur, they supported the Sri Lankan government to slaughter the Tamils in order to look after their strategic interests in the India Ocean.

If China and Pakistan didn’t supply weapons to Sri Lanka, we wouldn’t have seen the recent war in Sri Lanka.

 


West was deceived by Sri Lanka and its allies

War in Sri Lanka was started even with the blessings of the West and Japan.

Sri Lankan authorities with its PR partners, prepared a dossier to justify the war to the international community. This proposal was submitted to many countries including the EU, US, Norway and Japan.

Sri Lanka and its allies were able to convince many countries that Tamil rebels were a danger to the whole world. They were able to demonise the Tamil community, with lies and deceptions for their own advantage.

Comments made by some Western leaders and Japanese representatives during the war clearly showed that these countries were fully supporting the war in Sri Lanka but they felt very uncomfortable when the war became very dirty at the end. Many openly talked about post LTTE scenarios which means they all had the maps in their hands.

One of the main reasons why the UN and Western countries couldn't take a strong stand to stop the war even when thousands of innocents were dying was because there were all there when the button was pressed at the start of the War.

Only difference is that the West never gave the approval to kill innocent men, women and children. Sri Lanka was not given the go ahead to send Tamils to barbed wired concentration camps.

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, are now 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 are showing the face of rebellious country that is willing go to any extent to defy international humanitarian laws.

 


UN no longer has a backbone

No wonder why the UN acted the way it acted during the Sri Lankan war. Staff members in the UN were simply dancing according to the different set of tunes that were played by various parties to the war.

UN who is supposed to be a guardian of the oppressed and vulnerable, remained as a silent spectator while thousands were perishing in the sandy beaches of Sri Lanka.

It is so obvious that UN was manipulated and was made to act in this way by some master magicians.

 


Master magicians are now trying to save Sri Lanka

China and India voted in favour of Sri Lanka in the human rights council. Their vote was like praising a murderer in a criminal court. Sri Lanka was congratulated by these countries for the war because they were also the culprits.

These two countries have both been involved in high level PR campaigns to hide the war crimes committed by Sri Lanka. Arrogant voice from Sri Lanka in the recent times is to do with its close bonding with India and China.

India has recently said that it would give aid to Sri Lanka in case if the loan from IMF is denied or delayed.

Indian and Chinese media have constantly been releasing news, supporting the Sri Lankan government since the start of the war. Sri Lanka not allowing Aid agencies and Journalists to the IDP camps and to the killing fields is done with the full support of India. This is to hide the war crimes and to silence the witnesses of the war. Three doctors who served thousands of wounded in the killing fields are now locked up in Sri Lankan jails. India is capable of requesting Sri Lanka to release these doctors but it has chosen not to.

Sri Lankan President and many cabinet ministers in Sri Lanka have recently acknowledged that they fought India’s War in Sri Lanka.

 


Conclusion

Indian and Chinese military, political and security leaders that are playing chess games in Sri Lanka, have caused so much death and destruction to the innocents. What is the point of becoming a superpower when the power is used to kill and destroy the oppressed and vulnerable people of this world?

So called guardians of this earth can use buzz words like Terrorism, National, Regional and International security, Global warming and Energy in international conferences and pretend like the saviours of human race but it is all meaningless when the same hypocrites advise their own governments to aid genocide in other countries.

Instead of playing Tic-Tac-Toe games in the Indian Ocean, China and India and even the West should sit together and discuss what they all want to achieve in the Indian Ocean. China with such a population has genuine energy requirements, India has its concerns and it is sensible for all these countries to find common ground and initiate constructive discussions.

These emerging superpowers should help the oppressed communities in Sri Lanka and other troubled nations on this earth, instead of helping the oppressive regimes and turn these countries into a hell in order to feed their own people.

Earth's natural resources are being depleted so quickly. It is sensible for the energy hungry Nations to invest heavily on sustainable solutions like Hydrogen technology and Solar power. This would help us to save the planet and avoid human rights violations that are directly linked to the unfair competition between countries for raw materials and energy resources.

Any country that fails to protect the oppressed and vulnerable on this earth, and having worst human rights records, can’t become a leading Nation no matter how many rockets it sends to the Moon.

Fifty thousands were slaughtered in the killings fields by the Sri Lankan government with the help of India and China who are now acting like blood sucking leeches in the Indian Ocean. Three hundred thousands are now languishing in the death camps. Sri Lanka and its allies are doing all that they can to hide their crimes.

Rwanda, Sudan and now Sri Lanka, it is another wake up call to the World.

Genocide in Sri Lanka is real. Innocents are still being tortured, raped, murdered and starved. We have to make a choice whether to let the killings continue or we do something to stop it.

THE GENOCIDE INTO CONCENTRATION CAMPS FOR KILLING

(Link)

By Aruvi
Srilanka did massacre more than 53215 Tamils in just 5 months according to the statistics of Srilankan government agents and MPs worked in the areas of genocide happened. in the last few days alone Srilankan military massacred more than 30,000 Tamils,most of them buried alive in the bunkers and used chemical and cluster bombs to kill others. NO WONDER SRILANKA LOCKED ALL THE DOCTORS, PRIESTS, NGOs, INTELECTUALS, ETC AND THE 300,000 POTENTIAL WYE WITNESSES FOR THE GENOCIDE INTO CONCENTRATION CAMPS FOR KILLING THEM ALSO AFTER THEY USED THESE POOR PEOPLE AS HOSTAGES TO GET THE FOREIGN AID LIKE THE IMF. Srilanka alrready ENCOURAGING and COLONISING Tamil areas with Sinhalese while fooling the world as they lock the Tamils for clearing mines. Mines have no RACISM or Mines are not SinHella racists to kill TAMILS only. Acoording to Srilankan Census reports- JUST 18 SINHALESE lived in the ENTIRE North and East(called Eelam) when the British carried out Census in 1837. And, JUST 286 SInhalese lived in the ENTIRE NORTH and EAST according to FIRST POST INDEPENDENCE Census report. But Now, the Sinhalese population is almost a MILLION thanks ti the SRILANKAN SYSTEMATIC ETHNIC CLEANSING of MINORITIES since Independence to date. Now the Safeguard of Tamils- the LTTE-was destroyed using indian, Iranian and Chinese CHEMICAL and CLUSTER BOMBS against the International law, srilanka will escalate the SINHALISATION of TAMIL AREAS to deny any rights to TAMILS as the Srilanka already declared that SRILANKA ONLY FOR SINHALESE like the NAZIS.

China Crosses the Rubicon
http://www.kosovotimes.net/project-syndicate/570-china-crosses-the-rubicon.html
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.

Dear Richard,
Another factual piece from you Sir. You have every rightful talents to be the leader of any country in this world.

As one of our forefathers, Tamil leader Mr. Chelvanayagam said during early seventies after loosing hope in democratic protest against Sinhala Srilankan Governments that "In future only God is Tamil's savior", I will pray god, (which I rarely do these days because my hope in God is also slowly fading away) to give you a healthy and long life to produce hundreds of such articles and may be one day you will lead the world with all your followers and restore trust in humanity and human rights and make world a better place to live, mainly for poor and suppressed people.


Thank You,
On behalf of every suppressed human being in this world.
Thaya, T

(Link)

Thank you for stating the facts, I hope this article makes it the main stream media, especially the evening TV news. As even now the many non-Tamils are fairly ignorant of the the massacres and the systematic genocide taking place in Sri Lanka.
What is really puzzling is that not many journos wrote articles condemning the Sri Lankan Govt prior to May 17th, even though most of this information was widely known in Tamil circles. It is disappointing that News media, main Aid agencies, HR orgs and UN waited until after the genocide to slap the wrist of SL Govt, THANKS!!!

May my brave cousins and their fellow Eelam freedom fighters rest in peace.

if this is propaganda then why is the government hidding and hindering the independant jurnalists and those that support the gov from gaining access to the finnal battle feild and to find out for them selvs.

what happened to the political members of the LTTE, what happned to the LTTE fighters that surrenederd and what happned to the IDP's that were "saved"/captured in the final hurs.

true no western reporter would use the laguage because they would get banned by the chavanistic state by saying they are "white tigers" its the same fate for diplomats and other people whom tell the truth abt the issue and the plight of the Tamils.

"As you sow so shall you reap" exactly right if the LTTE got what it deserved then what will you and your Gov. get for all your crimes against us...

If you want proof take the media to your concentration camps. They will give you more proof than you bargained for.

Stop thinking it as an ethnic issue. it is more than that. I think it is a religious issue. Most of the top leaders of the LTTE including VP were practicing christians and they were using the hindu tamil civilians agianst the non-hindus(singalese). If you want support from the 1.2B Indians, you need to think it as a religious fight between hindus and non hindus. The christians always had an ulterior motive to destroy the hindu culture by promoting trouble thereby making thier stay ever present

Stop thinking it as an ethnic issue. it is more than that. I think it is a religious issue.

Richard Dixon looks like a proxy name for srilankan tamils living in UK. You guys keep using such harsh language in public domain. No wonder the world does not want to engage with you people. keep doing the same and your people will continue to live in camps for the next 10 years. There is nothing wrong in accepting that there is another side to the conflict and it's better to listen to the world and come to terms with peace. No point in creating animosity with India. You cannot achieve anything without our support.

INDIA, WHAT ELSE YOU WANT??????

(Link)

Dear Richard what you have written is NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH, THE RAW TRUTH. Independent Minds thank you very much for publishing this great article. In the name of HUMANITY I salute you both.

India was blaming the LTTE all these times. Now, LTTE has gone, LTTE Leaders have gone, every part of the Tamil’s land has gone under GoSL’s control to colonize with Sinhalese people as India desired. More than 100,000 Tamils have been massacred in the so called Safe Zone, 300,000 Tamils are being tortured in the so called concentration camps – rapes, abductions, tortures, starvation, …. Tamil people have lost everything including their dignity and respect. WHAT ELSE INDIA WANTS????? India, don’t say “We are not against the Tamil people.” This not the first time India has massacred the Tamil people with the GoSL. The Tamil people are not ready to believe your EMPTY STATEMENTS ANYMORE. YOU HAVE TAMILS BLOOD ON YOUR HANDS AND IN YOUR SOUL FOR GENERATIONS TO COME. WHAT ARE YOU DOING NOW? VISITING SL TO EXPLORE THE POSSIBILITIES OF WIPING OUT THE ENTIRE TAMIL RACE????? Your actions will come back to haunt you.

God Bless you Richard ! The orphaned Tamils of the world especially the Indian Tamil slaves are grateful to you. India will pay a heavy price for its murderous role against Tamils in Srilanka. Every action has equal and opposite reaction ! India has to shed blood in near future for its sins ! My curse on India as an Indian Tamil ; India to break into pieces and get completely destroyed !

I can't believe what I just read.

(Link)

I read your article "Emerging Powers turning into blood sucking leeches" and I can't believe what I just read. It is on the money and perfectly written. Could readily feel a sense of connection. Though I am an Indian (a tamilian as well), I cannot agree more to what you have said and it pains me to see what is going on in Sri Lanka. I have been following closely what is going on in the power struggle in Indian ocean and I feel deeply hurt by the way India is acting as an accomplice in this genocide.

I am a graduate student who is pursuing a doctoral degree in the US and most of the Indian students here are oblivious to the facts and India's role in abetting human rights violations. One proud bunch who want to think that India is noble no matter what it does. Things will only change when people start thinking beyond their borders and feel like they are global citizens. Rush to any job is the mantra among fellow doctoral students in this poor economy and these students seldom think who they are going to serve. Some of them are going to join Lockheed Martin and some in other agencies who are directly or indirectly involved in the massacre of people all over the world. A mind to inquire and a thinking to distance oneself from wrong-doings is something that is very rare these days.

Genocide in Sri Lanka

(Link)

We have, oops sorry, I have heard enough of articles and people's cry and am wondering how long this is going to go on?

Pleas give me the answer for the following questions:
1. What were the policies of LTTE?
2. Were they Capitalists or Marxist/Communist?
3. My cousin who was living in the Wanni owning more than 120 acres of cultivation land, requested me to leave my job in Colombo and come settle in Wanni in 1975, as he felt that LTTE will win a seperate state and the GOSL will chase me out of Colombo. Right now he had to eat his own words, having lost all his land to the LTTE. He is settled down with regrets down under. My question is, was it not the ploy of the LTTE to start the riots in 1983 to get all the Tamils to the North and East? How many fell for this?
4.If any one of you were the President of Sri Lanka, what would your approach be to wipe away terrorism and the LTTE?
5. We all know that the UN is back boneless organization from the time Kofi Annan was at the helm. How are we going to fix that problem?
6.Why are you blaming the GOSL for getting foreign help to demolish its enemy, when the Tamils were lighting crackers everytime LTTE killed the Tamil Political leaders and especially the P.M. of India Mr. Rajiv Ghandhi?
7.How come the Tamils refrained from voting at the last elections? Money, money money....they were bought over.
The President should be lauded for his tactics of war.
8.The innocent mislead Tamils are suffering at the cosequence of LTTE bogus propaganda that seperate state is the only answer. Now, will a foreign country like CHINA rule Sri Lanka? Will the Tamils join the Sinhalese to fight CHINA?
Well try and answer these questions before I ask you more.

One sentence “The President should be lauded for his tactics of war.” clearly shows that you are not a Self-respected TAMIL or a normal human-being. Your questions also shows that you are living in a stone-age without any sort of analytical mind. Many truths about Rajiv’s murder is coming out recently and they all shows that LTTE was not responsible for his murder. It does not matter how many people give you the facts you will not be able to understand them. The only thing we can do for you is to feel sorry for you.

India complicit in the most recenton Sri Lankan (SL) war crimes

Sri Lankan case is a classic ‘how to’ guide book on committing the worst human rights crimes and still escape criminality. All the invaluable work on SL’s human rights crimes done by UNHRC and other mandated Human rights groups were brought to naught (even a preliminary investigation was killed off thanks to Delhi) at the May Council meeting with Delhi exploiting the Council’s weakness as presently constituted. Delhi involvement in the SL genocide explains its intense interest in seeking such an outcome.

UNHRC and related Hunan Rights groups used their commendable field work and statements/reports to successfully prosecute the world’s most renowned human rights abusers/criminals. In SL’s case Human Rights groups reported ‘unacceptably high’ civilian deaths and ‘politically motivated massacres of surrendering Tamil Tiger fighters’ by the SL army. Yet Delhi not only disputes vehemently the civilian numbers killed in SL’s ‘no fire zone’, it accuses the West and the UN and mandated Human Rights groups personnel of using the ‘Elam issue to embarrass the SL government and to put SL's senior officers in the dock by using unauthenticated high figures of civilian casualties’. The cruelty of the savagery of attacks on civilians were overlloked. The intense bombardment of the narrow ‘no-fire zone’, throwing grenades into unarmed bunkers where civilians were sheltering, using heavy vehicles to run over injured civilians and bulldozing civilians ‘into mass graves along with the dead’. Leaks of graphic details of these are plugged by keeping incommunicado the front line 'human shield' civilians liberated straight into concentration camps in Vanni. However TV images of emaciated civilians being marched into the barbed wire camps, victims of starvation vouch to the savagery of SL’s use of starvation as a weapon of war on unarmed civilians. An analyst cynically observed that SL crimes received praise in that Council meeting that also ordered an investigation into Gaza atrocities though SL’s crimes were easily 10 times worse; the difference; there were no cameras in the SL case for the world see.

An observer explained 'India's (strong) backing for SL over the war crimes at the UNHRC for the West using 'the Eelam struggle, to actually de-stabilize SL and India'. The 'no fire zone', the brain child of Narayanan/Menon was meant for the massacres to occur in utmost secrecy without independent witnesses, to frustrate potential SL war crimes proceedings. Tamil civilians entrapped in the war front trustingly moved into the India blessed 'no fire zones' but they were actually well planned 'massacres zones' unlike Israel's 1982 Shabra and Shatila camp massacres. Lurid pictures of the SL massacres are in the public domain worldwide, thanks to the internet. Furthermore the revelation in The Sunday Times Gothabhaya Rajapakse’s interview described the role of the Indian trio (Foreign Secretary, National Security Advisor and Defense Secretary) who were ‘in the loop during the fighting’ and involved in the step by step liaising with the SL counterparts over the timing /details of the (May 16 to 19) massacres. Narayanan reportedly insisted that RAW be involved in the capture and massacre of the Ltte leadership along with a certain number of civilians politically acceptable to Delhi. RAW's over flights gave precise co-ordinates of the targets and the ground conditions for the massacres. In these circumstances prudence called for India to act in the May UNHRC meeting as it did. India saw a threat in the West's SL war crimes initiatives in the UNHRC though the Tamils view that the western powers unlike Delhi were acting perfectly morally exposing SL's inhuman crimes against unarmed civilians. The Tamils are distressed that an unabashed Delhi will continue to frustrate UNHRC’s pains to establish the criminality of the SL genocide as long as the Council is heavily stacked with members who are human rights abusers. Sri Lanka lost its membership in the UNHRC almost exactly a year ago. SL’s success in the UNHRC this time around is the result of India’s robust lobbying for SL’s for which the Tamils in their tens of thousands were used as sacrificial lambs.

Injustice & inequality

Its a pity the author has convenienly forgotten the fact India was and is the key player to all the crimes against the Tamils. I weould say India abetted aided and a willing accomplice in the crimes committed by the Sinhala Regimes.

Even now India is proud to enlist the LTTE in its blacklist. What is more , mother of Prabaharan ailing with paralysis and in her eighties is a classified Terrorist. That is Indian Democracy under the family rule of Sonia Ghandi !
