Mannar Bishop Playing his part of a Geopolitical Plan to Dominate the Strategic Mannar Region

Mannar is Trincomalee in the western coast! Such is its strategic significance. After decades of very strong LTTE influence and control of some parts of the region, security forces cleared the entire area and the coastline. However, in doing so they disturbed a geopolitical master plan of outsiders colluding with willing locals. In a disturbing development, Mannar Bishop Rayappu Joseph has once again displayed his naked Tamil racism. Various theories have been suggested as plaster solutions. None of these can resolve the underlying problems. Sadly most observers only see the superficial problem and miss the real problems underneath. Blaming the entire Church for his actions is not justified but Church’s inaction will only worsen its problems. What are the real reasons for the conduct of the Mannar Bishop?

Mannar is strategically important to both Sri Lanka and India. It is the closest place to India. The proposed Sethu Canal would run across the Mannar Sea. Mannar Island would be the closest land area to the Sethu Canal! Given its commercial and defence importance to India, it gets plenty of attention. And that means interested parties trying to maintain a pro-Indian or Indian subjugated presence around Mannar. At the same time it means anti-Indian elements also trying to have their presence to use it as a bargaining tool.

Being the closest place to India makes it a prime location for illegal immigrants from Tamil Nadu. With the nation falling into British hands, it completely lost control of its boundaries. Tamil Nadu illegal immigrants arrived by boat to Mannar. Train tickets were issues in Madras to any railway station in Ceylon. This was the gravity of the illegal immigration problem. Fishing and pearl fishing were other reasons Tamil Nadu illegal immigrants were attracted to Mannar.  

While Sri Lanka army and navy do a good job in deterring illegal immigrants, a lot needs to be done to overcome this threat. Prosecution of all illegal immigrants is a must to stop them. During the war LTTE extensively used the western coast around Mannar to transport weapons. There were a number of large LTTE bases including Sea Tiger bases in this region. These bases were so effectively fortified that even security forces backed by air power were bogged down for long periods of time to take them. A good example is Adampan. LTTE’s plan was to control the Mannar district coastline which is of huge strategic importance. Whatever the external plan to dominate Mannar, some Tamil Elamists are big time fans of this plan.

Knowing the significance of the north-western coast very well, USA set up a VOA transmit centre in the early 1990s in Iranawila (http://wikimapia.org/2967479/Voice-of-America-Iranawila). Due to war and associated violence, they could not set it up anywhere further north than that. Interestingly the Mannar region completely fell into the control of Tigers in 1991 including the Mannar “rice bowl”.

Mannar has oil fields that are currently being explored. Given the huge economic and strategic importance of these oil fields, many more external forces will soon start interfering in the region. Further economic resources include large fishing resources and other oceanic resources. Kachchativu Island lies between the Mannar island and India. Its ownership and use have been in dispute and the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister has repeatedly vowed to take it back. He sure has agents on this side of the Palk Strait.

When the Mannar Tamil Catholic Bishop Rayappu Joseph starts acting up, it is due to these reasons, not due to his Tamil racist views alone. He has a twin challenge. Mannar is the only Christian majority district in the country. And today it is virtually Tamil only. Retaining these two characteristics is the challenge faced by a number of anti-Sri Lankan elements including the Mannar Catholic bishop.

The defence establishment must identify this link, the threat and put in place foolproof mechanisms to frustrate this external-internal collaboration to rob the island nation its valuable resources.

Mannar was a Sinhala majority area and subsequently turned to a Tamil majority area due to illegal migration from Tamil Nadu. Mannarama (Mannar) District had over 8% Sinhalese in 1981 but it fell to zero thereafter. War and hostilities by Tamil racist politicians who always managed to win in Mannar of Vanni district resulted in this disaster.

Prince Vijaya and his associates landed in the island in 543BC at a location close to Mannar. There he met a Yaksha princess by the name Kuveni. Subsequent rulers ensured Mannar is under their complete control. For instance King Dutugemunu’s forces ambushed and decimated an army of 60,000 from Tamil Nadu in Mannar following the defeat of Elara.

Even the Madhu Catholic Shrine was built there following the Sinhala king from Kandy – Wimaladharmasuriya – 1 granting permission. He considered the plight of northern Catholics as the Dutch persecuted them. Area under the modern Mannar District excluding the island was under the Kandyan Kingdom until 1815. However, this act of unparalleled kindness has been exploited by the likes of Rayappu Joseph who know nothing about history and refuses to acknowledge historical facts.

Ethnic composition of the region must be changed by a sustained process of colonization supported by security forces and state sponsorship. Only such a move can bring lasting peace and pro-Sri Lankan geopolitical control of the region. Sadly both Trincomalee and Mannar areas are politically dominated by pro-Tamil Elamist, anti-Sri Lankan political groups with very strong links with Tamil Nadu and the Tamil Diaspora. These are telltale signs of an impending disaster. What comes of Rayappu Joseph’s loose lips must be interpreted in this context.

Great post DA!

Certainly, I hope our honchos will not underestimate the importance of Mannarama to our survival!

We have learned enough lesson by callously dismissing the importance of our key port-entry point in the Island (not only recently, but going back 1000's of years) and therefore I ask our powers-that-be in SL to pay close attention to our Mannarama and what is really happening there and more importantly, the strategic importance of our Mannarama to our nation's well being.

Truly, it is heartening to see the MR GOSL developing the hitherto neglected Ruhuna with Ports, Airports, Cricket stadiums, etc, but in the same vein, I say we must be vigilant and devote enough security/civic resources to our Mannarama area to assure ourselves that the illegal TamilNadu immigration (which happened over 300 years of white-colonial occupation as them whitey could not give a flying F who came into SL and put a stake in the ground and claimed crown land) does not kick-start again!

This rascal Bishop Kassippu Josephe is a strong anti-SL subversive and must be treated so.

As we have seen, this cross-holding, frock-wearing so calleed "man of God" was really a LTTE undercover agent and he had enough deeds to his credit to prove that he was that and none other.

Just consider this little sample of the rabid dog's pro-LTTE stance:

at the LG election both mannar and trinco went to tamil racist political parties. this has been the case for a long time.

this must be artificially changed by re-colonization.

it can be done.

we should also follow a system that will "smoke out" undesirable elements in these areas. disrupting their businesses, regular checks, army cordoning off of the area time to time, controlled explosion of old ammunition within SLA camps (noise), taking over of UC/MC/PS bodies stating national security concerns in these two places, rebuilding buddhist places of worship (now this is going to anger the terrorists). it is another smoking out strategy. you anger them and then hammer them when they engage in trouble.

"US based sources gave hope on evacuation: Nadesan told a journalist
[TamilNet, Monday, 21 March 2011, 02:08 GMT]
According to a senior journalist, the late LTTE political head, Mr. B Nadesan, consulted him over some messages Nadesan had been receiving from a US based former LTTE member that assurances had been given by the US State Department about evacuation of the LTTE cadres during the final stages of the war. The journalist, who cautioned Nadesan to be sceptical, says that he is prepared to give affidavit to any international investigation if the investigative body could arrange his safe appearance. The US based former LTTE member cited by Nadesan was known for claiming that he was associated with a ‘think tank’ of Prof. James Clad, who between 2007 and 2009 served as the US Deputy Asst. Secretary of Defence for Asian and Pacific Security Affairs.

Jon Lee Anderson in a recent The New Yorker article, described Prof. Clad as a “great friend of Sri Lanka.”

On the night of May 16, Nadesan telephoned to a university professional in Norway, told him about what he had heard about an evacuation programme and asked him to verify whether any ship was coming for evacuation.

When the university professional in Norway contacted the Norwegian embassy in Colombo in the middle of the night Sri Lankan time, the Deputy Ambassador told him that she had not heard of any such arrangement. Yet the Deputy Ambassador contacted the Ambassador and the Ambassador in turn contacted Mr. Robert Blake, finally to get the verification that no such plan was there.

Informed sources in Colombo said that the US based former LTTE member cited by Nadesan has recently gone to India where he held discussions with Indian National Security sources about forming a political party.

Apart from the senior journalist, there are also other sources in Europe that have witnessed Nadesan receiving messages from the US based former LTTE member.

The senior journalist says that he had seen emails originating from the USA, before he passed his opinion to the LTTE Political Head."

Moshe Dyan said...

pol,

in addition hundreds of civilians have died in libya already from air strikes. of course it is not a war crimes because it is collateral damage of action against a terrorist. so USA is free of war crimes in libya. but why not it be the same for SL?

NPC terror under investigation

Sri Lanka's CID to probe funding sources of local Rights Group
[TamilNet, Tuesday, 22 March 2011, 10:54 GMT]
National Peace Council (NPC), a Colombo-based "advocacy and education organization" in media release issued Tuesday said its Executive Director was called to the Head Quarters of Criminal Investigation Department (CID) of Sri Lanka Police and was informed that the CID will carry out "an investigation regarding the organization's [NPC's] sources of funding, its partners and the activities it was carrying out." The media release added that NPC's "Governing Council is distressed that the current CID investigation would intimidate our staff members and their families, and also gives a negative message to the wider society of official intolerance towards liberal and democratic values."

"‘Trawler diplomacy’ escalates as elections near in Tamil Nadu
[TamilNet, Wednesday, 23 March 2011, 18:35 GMT]

Three fishermen from Valveddiththu'rai were 'abducted' Tuesday in the seas off Jaffna by Indian Fishermen and were handed over to Indian Police in Koadikkarai, Rameswaram, fishermen society sources in Jaffna said. The incident was reported as talks were taking place in Colombo between the delegations of fishermen from the North and the fishermen from India. Political observers said that the establishments in New Delhi, Chennai and Colombo, in strategic partnership, are effectively deploying a 'trawler diplomacy' to set the Eezham Tamils against Tamils of Tamil Nadu in order to achieve a set of agenda ranging from blunting the national question of Eezham Tamils and corporate exploitation of the traditional waters of Tamils to tackling electoral questions in the forthcoming state assembly elections in Tamil Nadu.

During the talks, arranged by the Sri Lankan Fisheries ministry, allegedly to sort out the problems relating to Indian fishermen trespassing into the territorial waters of the island, the Indian fishermen have demanded that they be allowed to fish for three days in a week in the territorial waters of the island arguing that the quantity of fish in their territory has dwindled."

i don't agree word to word but agree in substance what the plan is.

maintaining a rift between toilenadu and northern SL is a MUST. at the moment we are doing it at the expense of our own fisheries resource. but no harm done bcos no attempt was made to allow SLs of all races the use of this fisheries resources. until such time using it to our geopolitical advantage is justified.

northern fishermen remember that they are sri lankan only when such things happen! otherwise they continue to think they are tamilmadu.

The government information department reported that even though the new corporation will aim at streamlining the local administration and building their capacity, the existing local bodies will continue to function.


The corporation will be headed by a city Governor appointed by the President while the heads and deputy heads of the local bodies along with a nominated member from the opposition of each local authority will constitute the composition of the corporation.


Meanwhile, twelve advisory committees will also be set up to advise the corporation."

we need MORE moves to FORCE colombians, TE sympathisers, anti-nationalists and other losers to leave the country or suffer permanant submissive disorder.

during the war 1.1 million TE sympathisers from the north, east and colombo left the country. of course in addition many others too left but the number of TE sympathisers is far more.

ending the war creates the dangerous possibility that these losers don't go anymore.

"Democratic uprising in Tamil Nadu crucial to changes in the region
[TamilNet, Friday, 25 March 2011, 12:38 GMT]
If the so-called post 9/11 paradigm provided an opportunity for repressive forces to mobilise against various peoples in the world and if that worked against the liberation of Eezham Tamils, the recent uprising of peoples against establishments in North Africa and West Asia is a favourable trend the Eezham Tamils and the Tamils of Tamil Nadu have to carefully comprehend and make use of in bringing out changes in South Asia too. Progressive Sinhalese who see the need to recognise the nation of Eezham Tamils for a true reconciliation in the island should also join in. A democratic uprising in Tamil Nadu is crucial to changes in the entire region and that is a big hope for Eezham Tamils too."

The ‘speaker’ of the TGTE Assembly, Pon Balarajan, belonging to Rudrakumaran faction of the TGTE, sent letters on Saturday to elected members of the TGTE who identified themselves as Democrats that they were ‘expelled’ from the TGTE Assembly. This has happened despite Democrats members on Friday publicly reiterated an oath of allegiance to the concept of the TGTE and the Assembly. With pretext or without pretext, the Rudra faction in the TGTE has decided to ‘get rid of’ Democrats in order to move in a hurried way to materialize a pre-conceived agenda, sources close to Democrats alleged.

Robert Blake Comedy Unfolds

Rajapaksas were 'not fully aware' of war - India


Ha ha ha ha.... These jokers are more entertaining than I thought.

Moshe Dyan said...

sam,

war in afghanistan!! :)

one joke to match another. looks like both USA's blake and india fooling each other!!

Moshe Dyan said...

having said that, i have to agree that SOME of it is actually true.

:(

please excuse me for stiring up a controversy AGAIN over a matter which is unimportant.

the story goes....

R.s wanted vezapillai, etc. alive so that they can use him to the max (especially at elections) like they use KP, etc.

they knew gonseka would not allow that.

so they sent gonzeka on a lucrative arms deal trip to china. (none of these deals went through as they were a sham from the start.)

but gonzeka sensed it (another 1987 vadamarachchi?????) and cancelled his trip half way, flew back, took control of the SLA and finished the barbarians.

when MR arrived from jordan and kissed the ground on the 17th, the war was over for him.

but gonzeka took control of the SLA completely for 2 days to finish off the world's worst terrorists.

R.s were panicing and they could not do anything to stop it. any try would have put their lives in danger.

MR/GR didn't even know vezapillai was captured. gonzeka insisted that they didn't see him. AFTER a long wait, MR went ahead and announced the victory without knowing vezapillai was dead.

after half an hour later came gonzeka on TV and announced the BIG news. obviously he knew it all along.

R.s were furious. they carefully laid a trap for gonzeka with the CDS post. gonzeka realized he lost his power only after accepting the CDS post. had he known, he would have used cohesion to extend it or get a powerful post using the same tactic he used on 17, 18 may 2009.

india fully supported the move to wipe out terrorists. actually mk narayanan and shiva shankar menon were constantly updated of the war by gonzeka AND took instructions.

the blogger by the name "ogre" slightly mentioned this at that time but soon shut it up saying he can't say anymore.

after the war R.s got rid of all fabulous "hands on heroes" of LRRP, DPU, about 25 different secret services, etc. in short they retired all the REAL hands on heroes.

the rest is well known.

so gonzeka BEFORE he left the army commander post was far better than the R.s

it is really sad that things had to end the way they did.

i blame R.s MORE than gonzeka for the fallout.

gonzeka did the right thing by eliminating tigers without orders.

but after the fallout gonzeka slept with tigers possibly bcos he was trapped by tigers by threatening to take him to the hague, etc.

so he agreed to falsely implicate R.s

actually the west that is paddling this war crimes BS is after the R.s and not gonzeka. gonzeka is the PAST and R.s are the future.

mongala, ranil, etc. played their part of this western hatched plan EXTREMELY well in splitting the two.

this is what i heard from many sources.

this is bloody confusing.

please forgive me if i dragged an unnecessary topic over which patriots are HIGHLY divided.

US initiated ‘contact groups’ to militarily weaken Eezham Tamils
[TamilNet, Friday, 01 April 2011, 12:04 GMT]

Two international ‘contact groups', one each to check LTTE fund-raising and arms purchases were initiated by the U.S, in the first half of 2006, says The Hindu article Friday, based on the US cables accessed by The Hindu through Wikileaks. A cable sent in August 2006 from the US Embassy in New Delhi discloses the composition of the contact groups for the first time: representatives of Australia, Belgium, Canada, France, Germany, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, Switzerland, Thailand, the United Kingdom and the United States, The Hindu feature further said.

According to the cables, Nirupama Menon Rao, the present Indian Foreign Secretary who was then Indian envoy in Colombo thought that the US plan was a ”good idea.”

A joint Secretary, Mohan Kumar, in the Indian Ministry of External Affairs suggested the inclusion of Canada in the fund-blocking ‘contact’ group and he was pleased at the proposed composition of the weapons procurement contact group, as it included Southeast Asian states such as Thailand and Malaysia, the cables revealed.

The cables also showed that the US wanted Rajapaksa to come out with details of a political solution to weaken the LTTE.

“It is clear that India was pushing Sri Lanka to come out with a political solution, but had made little headway in its efforts,” The Hindu article said.

However, India was not favouring a joint demarche to Colombo along with the USA, but proposed parallel demarches.

Indian Foreign Secretary Shyam Saran visited Colombo in the first week of July 2006. Later that month, the Sri Lankan Army formally crossed the ceasefire line. According to K. Vekataramanan of The Hindu, this culminated in the “liberation” of the eastern region in 2008.

From the cables it seems that instead of coming out with details of political solution, Colombo was keen in USA and India comprehensively participating in the ‘contact group’ programme of weakening the Eezham Tamils militarily.

The cables contradict the claim of Norwegian peace facilitator Erik Solheim that there was a solution on the table, but the LTTE lost the opportunity.

Why the USA and India didn’t insist on political solution they were verbally putting forward but went all out in mobilising the world establishments in weakening the Tamils militarily; Was there any ‘secret solution’ agreed upon between Rajapaksa and the USA and between Rajapaksa and India, as the ‘demarches’ were parallel. Was it because the USA and India knew that this solution would not come anywhere near the Tamil aspirations, it was decided to keep that secret, hoping that after allowing a genocide the feeble Eezham Tamils would accept it – these are questions raised by Tamil political observers.

yes of course!!!! THAT was the solution!

Professor Gideon Boas of Monash University School of Law, in an article appearing in Sydney Morning Herald, criticized the Australian Government for its reluctance to prosecute war criminals, and pointed to the recent filing by two Tamil organizations of war-crime charges in the International Criminal Court (ICC) against Dr Palitha Kohona who is an Australian citizen and formerly a senior official with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. While Prof Boas said the factual case has problems and complexities, the Tamil organizations that filed the case said that new key witnesses to the Kohona's alleged crimes have come forward and that a "superceding complaint" will likely be filed with ICC once a legally admissible deposition is obtained from the new witness."

"India is pressing Sri Lanka to amend the Constitution to “guarantee and ensure equal rights and equal status” to Sri Lankan Tamils, Congress president and United Progressive Alliance chairperson Sonia Gandhi said here on Tuesday.

“In our neighbourhood, there is no issue closer to our heart than the rights of the Sri Lankan Tamil people. There has been significant progress last year and India had committed and provided large sums of money for the relief and rehabilitation of the affected people. We will do everything in our power to rehabilitate them,” she said, addressing an election rally on Island Ground along with Dravida Munetra Kazhagam president and Chief Minister M. Karunanidhi.

She said the Union government was spending substantial amount on rehabilitation of Sri Lankan Tamils and “we will continue our efforts at rehabilitation” [of the Tamils displaced in the war between the Sri Lankan Army and the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam].

She also spoke of the firing on Tamil fishermen in the international waters which claimed a few lives.

“We are deeply pained that some lives of fishermen have been lost. We have been assured that there would be no firing in the future and we will continue to work to ensure this commitment is met,” she said, the Hindu reports."

Lanka’s war-affected linked with export markets
*Designers reinvent crafts, provide livelihoods for communities
April 8, 2011, 6:03 pm



"Understanding the crucial role that design could play in Sri Lanka’s development, the Academy of Design (AOD) has facilitated a special project involving the war-affected persons in the North and East regions of Sri Lanka. This project ‘Design Re-Creation’ places AOD’s designers in direct contact with artisans. AOD’s alumni and student body, along with the college’s principal - UK’s fashion design talent Karen MacLeod and Interior Design Programme Head of the college, American Interior Designer Joel Rapp visited the villages of Sri Lanka’s North and East to work directly with the artisans.
The project covers many traditional crafts like Rattan, Palmyra, Fabric Weaving and even recently introduced crafts like Knitting. AOD’s international design team is currently working with the war-affected communities in the villages of Marathamunai, Naruvizhikkulam, Paavulupattan, Kudiyirippu and many more in the Districts of Mannar, Jaffna, Batticaloa and Ampara.

"The Sri Lankan government and several other parties have already set up craft centres in certain areas, but there has not been any consistent training or guidance in design or marketability to help these artisans equal their products with current market requirements. Therefore, as Sri Lanka’s pioneering educator in design, we felt it is AOD’s duty to help these communities and in turn, help Sri Lanka too." said Linda Speldewinde – Managing Director of AOD.

The crafts produced through this project are to be marketed in the international market as high quality exports and will be given a special platform at the annual Sri Lanka Design Festival organized by the AOD too. American Designer Joel Rapp who heads the Interior Design faculty at the AOD said that the AOD design team encouraged the artisans to break away from the standard colours and forms that they use and introduced them to the current trends in the international markets. "These people have the skills and the crafts needed by many in Europe and North America. What we do is give them the vision and the guidance to match their skills with the existing market requirements. AOD is bridging the gap between the artisans’ knowledge and International markets while creating new commercial links for Sri Lanka."

The Design Re-Creation project has only started to transform the lives of many. "The best reward that comes with this project is to witness the amazing impact that it makes on the lives of these people. They really didn’t think they were capable of making products sought after by high-end markets across the world – and to have us telling them that they can, and showing them how they can, has really made a change in their thinking, economies and lives. It is truly an amazing experience for us as designers and for AOD as a dynamic force in South Asian creativity," said Karen MacLeod, Principal of AOD."

US State Department apes including Blake the Snake shall understand that internal politics of Sri Lanka are none of their business. Some things for US State Department Dogs and Bitches to remember:

(1) Sri Lankans have elected all the Rajapakse family members at their own will
(2) Defence Secretary Rajapakse is the unrivaled defence secretary who save our nation.
(3) Sri Lankans never asked for these State Department scumbags opinion.
(4) Sri Lankans could care less about the State Department scumbags two cents.
(5) Most importantly, the SD Dogs and Bitches can fly kites in their own free time without poking their dirty noses in our affairs.

"Robert Blake’s ‘reconciliation’ is farming in Tamil land for SL military
[TamilNet, Sunday, 10 April 2011, 12:02 GMT]

While the US Asst Secretary of State Robert O Blake testified before the US Foreign Affairs Committee on the “reduction of the reach of High Security Zones” (HSZ) in the island to support his vision of progress that is taking place towards the US State Department-conceived paradigm of ‘reconciliation,’ evidences that come from Jaffna show that the occupying genocidal SL military is engaged in full-fledged farming and horticulture in the largest HSZ in Jaffna Peninsula, reportedly by using slave labour of the captured LTTE cadres. The Valikaamam HSZ, created after uprooting villages, is in the best of the fertile lands and the occupying military has already leased out large tracts of them to Sinhala businessmen. If farming could take place why mines are an excuse to hand over the lands to the owners, ask Tamils."

I am sad to say the Western nations are making a great mistake attacking Libya and they are definitely taking sides’ here by bombing the Gaddafi military assets. It is no more case of protecting the civilans.Escaping civilians to EU is a ‘problem’ to those EU nations that stated this conflict in the first place. Looks like the rebels against Gaddafi are a lose bunch of fundamentalist extremists of more than one sect who had come together with the sole aim of islamization that part of the world and perhaps the whole world.
During the recent past Gaddaffi had been a bulkhead against these extremists and the Western nations has been sending their leaders to hug him and none of these countries will ever trust the Western nations and their gestures.
Countries that benefited from Gaddafi must show their displeasure by recalling their ambassadors from these nations that bomb Lybia,where they are exploiting the UN for their narrow intrests.It is a shame and many in the West is critical of their government’s stand.

Moshe said...

you are right kevin.

this creates more fundamentalists and mistrust. rebels have not shown their commitment to democracy, human rights or civil administration. they fight for the sake of fighting.

this is a bloody dangerous development orchestrated by that KASIPPU JOSEPH sakkiliya.

"Residents succeed in protest against SLA checkpost in Mannaar village
[TamilNet, Monday, 11 April 2011, 06:51 GMT]

The Sri Lanka Army had abandoned its move to set up a sentry in Pa'l'limunai village in Mannaar district Sunday due to vehement protest by residents. A group of SLA soldiers had gathered near the water tank in the village on Sunday morning and had been making arrangement to establish a sentry point.

Neighbouring families rushed to the nearby church and alerted the village by ringing the church bell.

Villagers in large number gathered at the site and protested against the SLA move to set up the sentry point that later led to heated argument with the soldiers on duty.

Protesting villagers requested SLA officials who rushed to the site on receipt of information of the unrest in the area against setting up sentry point.

The SLA later abandoned its move and packed up all materials brought to set up the sentry point and left the area due to protest by villagers."

Moshe said...

this further confirms that these terrorists are up to something big.

how can SLA just give up building a checkpoint like this?

if these terrorists are so racist, how can non-tamils even pass through this area, let alone settle!!

this is totally unacceptable. the few leaders of these ppl should be eliminated.

The US report reflects their deep frustrations.

Few points: the claim that Rajapakse “has a special team to monitor everything and anything negative about him” (or whatever that bs was) originates from non other than Mangala and his LNW.

Bloody hilarious how they are reporting any lie and exaggeration to attack Sri Lanka from “media” sources that are paid for and run by them to disseminate such bs in the first place. And I am sure if anything is done to stop such “media” coverage where facts and evidence is not required but just lies and defamation is all that’s spewed out then it would be “violating freedom”.

Great to see they quote their own stooges as a “source”.

Then to see them crying for the JVP monkeys disrupting and torturing universities being incarcerated is further proof that they are trying to grab onto anything and everything, no matter how remote, ridiculous or simply concocted to label as “human rights violations” by Sri Lanka. Added to this is the selectivity and one sidedness taken towards certain events to once again achieve the goal of creating the picture they want.

I still love how attempts to maintain law and order plus other normal activities by the Police/State which are conducted in every other nation by the legitimate authorities are labelled “human rights violations” or my favourite “abductions”. They have even bitched about court cases.
It is evident they are extremely pissed with Rajapakase and this “report” is merely ways of creating grounds to justify punishment towards Sri Lanka (using the “high moral” bs) all in all as a way of getting revenge for the destruction of their hit force in South asia and pushing regime change by targeting the people of Sri Lanka as the US is fully aware of MRs immense popularity and the fact his real power is concentrated in the masses of this country as they have seen time and time again through every election and the manner in which every despicable attack they have thrown against SL to crush him results in the people rallying around him (where all their hard worked bs through their media stooges, NGOs and other traitors and propagandists and unhesitant support to Tamil racism and barbarism have failed to con the people into turning against him).

Best of all is the evident “hurt” they have over their stooge and puppet Gonseka not only failing in his power grabbing bid but getting thrown into the slammer as well (and the report almost has a sense of pride almost in the manner Gonseka got an MP seat). This can be clearly seen from their whining over the election defeats of theirs (Gonseka not only lost lose, the US/West lost even more than he did) which at the time they regretfully accepted as free and fair but now are throwing up the fuss –why did they not complain at the time? Damn. They really are pissed that the people rejected their stooge and voted for Rajapakse in landslides. More importantly all that time, money, propaganda, violence and intimidation they unleashed on the people to bring Fonseka into power (including his coup attempt) was out witted by the ordinary people much in the same way Sri Lanka beat their mass murdering Tamil terrorist pets despite all the investment they poured into supporting and trying to save it –i.e. ordering the LTTE create a human shield to engineer a humanitarian catastrophe to justify intervention to save the LTTE leadership.

Its hilarious how right after the election Butenins was running around like a headless chicken barking at and threatening media institutions and personal in Sri Lanka who rightfully accused the US of plotting the coup and being part and parcel of the Fonseka campaign, i.e. being the actual source of the unprecedented violence and hate he unleashed on the people on their behalf just to secure regime change.

Moshe,
You mentioned above something to do with Gonseka and MR split. Regardless of what happened nothing can excuse Gonseka for the immense treachery he conducted by A ) Lining up with the enemies within the nation B ) Lining up with the enemies outside of the nation C) Spitting venom and hatred on the people and of course the biggest crime of all: unleashing cold hearted hate, selfishness and bile against our ARMED FORCES despite the mad nut claiming to be “the big shot army commander”.
He himself proved through his venom that he cared nothing for the country, army or people but just his pathetic, filthy, selfish, money hungry life. Furthermore this is the same mutt who took huge amounts of information (DVDs, files, documents etc) of ALL our operational plans, military structures, names of Special Forces personal, MI operatives, civilian contacts, arms procurers, details + plans with our allies (China), regimental details, operational command structures, orders of battle, images, footages, techniques from the entire war period from the beginning to end along with huge swathes more and handed it over to his white masters when he departed to the US back in October 2009. Hope you haven’t forgotten it.
Biggest intelligence coup/source for the West was none other than “our” Army commander. Hope he’s proud.
And you say Gonseka was worried about war crimes bs from the die-ass-pora. They and the West had god damn nothing until this scum opened his mouth, now everyone is in trouble. The die-ass-pora is out for revenge they want “blood for blood” and thanks to this selfish piece of crap they are so close to getting it. I honestly hope Gonseka is reborn as the cockroach he is to be stepped on and fumigated time and time again, each time reborn with his memories intact so he knows why he Is suffering eternal damnation for the betrayal he has done. In terms of outrage, damage, betrayal and destruction to our nation Gonseka has equalised or surpassed the Millenium City event (after all he had no quarrel joining up with those who did that and worse to the country just to grab a green card, some cash and money). In fact his existence will go down in history as the 21st century’s 1815 for our people in terms of scale and treachery and all just for a petty amount of power promised by some white foreigners playing divide and conquer to which this mutt fell for due to his own selfishness and greed and foul ego coupled to venom releasing hate filled tongue.

Moshe said...

"SRI LANKAN SENTENCED IN UK FOR INDECENT EXPOSURE

A public menace with a history of committing sex crimes has been jailed for exposing himself in Crawley’s Memorial Gardens.

John Jeymes was locked up for two years last Thursday, and blamed his depraved behaviour on the fact he was tortured 20 years ago during a civil war.

It was the second time the dad-of-three had breached a court order banning him from exactly the sort of sex act he was caught doing in the town centre park.

Hove Crown Court heard how the 47-year-old, of Tilers Way in Reigate, was hiding in the bushes pleasuring himself when he called over to a 21-year-old woman to show her what he was doing.

Sri Lankan-born Jeymes’ solicitor said that, although he admitted the crime, a mental health issue – which came about after he was given electric shocks to his genitals in his home country – was to blame.

Guy Russell, prosecuting, told the court: “The victim was walking through Memorial Gardens at around 4.15pm (on February 25) towards County Mall.

“As she walked she heard a wolf-whistle. She turned to see where it was coming from and she saw the defendant standing in the bushes with his trousers around his ankles. He was pleasuring himself.”

The court heard the woman continued walking to the shopping centre, where she alerted security guards who in turn called the police. Jeymes was then arrested at the scene.

Mr Russell added: “Mr Jeymes has three previous convictions for this sort of behaviour.

“When taken into custody he said ‘I do it again and again and again’. In interview he told police he had no recollection of the incident as when he was in Sri Lanka in 1991, during the civil war, he was arrested and tortured by having shocks passed through his hands and genitals.

“He said he now hears voices in his head encouraging him to engage in the behaviour he does.”

Alistair Harper, defending, said Jeymes was a “very complex individual”.

He added: “He takes the situation he finds himself in very seriously. During the uprising in Sri Lanka in 1991 he was captured, tortured and witnessed the death of his only brother.”

When sentencing, Judge Charles Kemp described the case as “particularly tragic”. He told Jeymes: “You say you have no recollection of this but you keep doing it. You obviously had a dreadful experience in Sri Lanka and I do not doubt you are suffering with some form of post traumatic stress disorder.

“I hope you seek the help you need when you leave prison.” (thisissussex)"
