That's the Sri Lankan Army executing innocent Tamil civilians.

 

Not a single nation concerned with preserving democracy (such as the US) nor the UN has done anything to arrest and persecute those responsible (this includes the Nazi racist mahinda rajapaksa, the president of Sri Lanka).

 

To this day, there are innocent people being killed, robbed, tortured, abducted, raped, etc in the previously war torn areas. It even occurs to Hindus and Tamils in areas such as the capital, Colombo.

I find it funny that you feel the UN doesn't care enough about this to stop it, yet signing an article online will do something more.

 

I've read up on the Sri Lankan Civil War previously and found evidence of both sides committing injustices and atrocities, but overwhelming evidence points to rather good overall behavior by the Sri Lankan military. The Sri Lankan government's approach to Tamils now is very impressive and patient.

 

Do you have any further evidence of horrific injustices committed by the Sri Lankan government?

I agree with this. The Sri Lankan government has taken a lot of flak for it's treatment of the Tamil minority in the past, but many of those who take that attitude seem to selectively ignore the acts of violence- deliberate targeting of civilian infrastructure, the massacring of innocent villagers, widespread use of child soldiers and ethnic cleansing in Northern Sri Lanka committed by LTTE combatants. To accuse the Sri Lankan military of injustices whilst completely ignoring the above is rather hypocritical, in my opinion.

Link fixed. Thanks a lot for pointing that out bro.

 

Well, the UN hasn't really done anything so far. But I can't give up considering the severity of this situation.

 

Yes, the LTTE wasn't just. While the cause they stood up for was justified, the way they took action was wrong. That and it soon became a way for Prabhakaran to fill his pockets than to help the Tamil people.

 

You honestly think that a government which prevented independent monitoring during the final stages of the war is giving the international community the full story?

 

Other countries don't even get to know 1/8 of the horrible atrocities that happen here. Why? Because the government does not allow international organisations to monitor the situation here. Even the local media is suppressed to such an extent that journalists are killed and abducted for reporting the truth, TV/radio stations which report the truth are burnt down/vandalised, etc. Ever heard of these things?

 

There is infact overwhelming evidence which supports the fact that the government has committed far more horrible war crimes than the LTTE and continues to do so, it's just that neither the international community nor most of the local population that rely on local media for information, know of these things. Just recently, the father of a Hindu woman (from Jaffna), was beaten to death with a bicycle chain by the armed forces. Was this reported in the news? No. How do I know about this? My father knows the woman.

 

I can't provide an article from a news site or the like for the above because the media is suppressed to such an extent that whoever dares to report such a story will either be killed, tortured, abducted, etc.

 

Did you know that in a 'refugee camp' in the Manik farms after the war, there were 1400 people dying per week? Luckily some international sites have articles on this.

 

Oh and I'm not ignoring what the LTTE did. I did not and do not support the LTTE. But you have to understand that the government has killed more innocent civilians than the LTTE, and this is not just during the war, it's still happening even though the LTTE has been destroyed.

Why would UN do anything? There is nothing in it for them. They are not in business of helping people, they are in business of helping themselves.

That's actually what I've come to realise too, bro. But I just hope that if not for the UN, some country atleast comes to help because the situation here is worsening by the second.

Nothing's going to be done about it. Sure its terrible that its still going on and there's no word about it. But just look at other nations in the same position as that either their own government isn't doing a good enough job or they have to much financial gain to do anything about it. There's still turmoil in half of the African continent just because of uprising/civil wars that are still going on or have stopped yet nothing as been done to build a future. There's always going to be injustice in the world. The EU will help neither your country nor anywhere else unless there's a financial gain to them. As long as there are people out in the world with different opinions and they deal with them in such an extreme matter the world is never going to stop having this problem.

I find it interesting that although it will remove your video in less than an hour if it contains music, YouTube seems to to have ignored this video. I would have assumed it was against their terms of use to host such contents,unless it is unlisted or something. At least it is flagged as unappropriate for some users.

 

That video is so depressing. Where is the honor, the purpose even, of tying somebody up and shooting them in the back of the head?

The world rings out with injustice, but we turn our ears away.

No honour. But they might find it amusing. Why else would they be filming it on their mobile phones?

One more request, Time magazine wants to honour the president by labelling him 'most influential'. Please, vote no. For all the innocent people who've died and their families:

 

Time poll

 

More proof of his war crimes:

 

 

 

Pics of some of the victims (which includes very small children and women)

 

Please do your part guys. Thanks so much.

Even more evidence:

 

http://www.thesundayleader.lk/2011/01/23/i...econciliation”/

 

 

According to the Kachcheri, (meaning the District Office) the population in Wanni was 429,059 in the early part of October 2008

 

 

According to UN OCHA update as of 10th July 2009, the total number of people who came out of the Wanni to government controlled areas after this (meaning the war) is estimated to be 282,380

Oh look, the broken record has rolled around again. sigh.gif

 

I understand your sentiments about the UN, but this isn't a case of not acting because it's not in their interests to do so, it's about a lack of consensus. Do you really think that there would be any kind of consensus on action against the Sri Lankan government? I mean, I'm not doubting any of what Warlord. is saying, it's not an area that I'm particularly familiar with since the end of the war, but the issue as I can see it is a lack of evidence out there on which to act. I remember a while ago the news was full of footage of Sri Lankan soldiers executing Tamil prisoners of war- which later (apparently) transpired to have been faked in order to try and swing popular global opinion away from supporting the government.

 

Just to bring those figures up you mentioned in the last post- correct me if I'm wrong, but the significant drop of population in North Sri Lanka doesn't provide any real evidence that the government were committing genocide or murder. The fact that between late 2008 and 2009 the area represented the main area of conflict between the LTTE and government forces leads me to believe that the majority of those fled the area, rather than being killed. Even the largest estimates of fatalities during the Northern offensive were around 20,000- by no means small, but hardly representative of the 140,000 or so those figures seem to suggest.

I can tell you for a fact that the government killed much more than 20,000 civilians.

 

The proportion of people who were able to successfully flee the areas during the final periods of the war was minuscule in comparison to the amount of people who were shot down by the government forces when trying to flee into government occupied areas.

 

Don't get me wrong, the LTTE used human shields and played a part in killing civilians too, but as anyone who has experienced the events would tell you, the amount of civilians killed by the LTTE was much lower than the government.

 

Oh and that video is not fake. The soldiers are in the Sri Lankan army uniform and are speaking fluent Sinhala, I know because I've seen soldiers in these uniforms and I too am fluent in Sinhala.

 

The video is not fake. I can guarantee that. The Sri Lankan government simply labels anything and anyone who criticises them as 'Tamil terrorists', 'traitors', and as 'plots to overthrow the government' etc, this video got the same treatment. What this does is wind up the majority of the racist Sinhalese (I'm half Sinhalese myself, but I can tell you for a fact that the majority of the Sinhalese in this country are extremely racist and don't care one bit about the innocent people the government killed) in support for the government.

 

Basically, the government has brainwashed the majority of the Sinhalese population to such an extent that (and implanted superiority complexes in the Sinhalese which makes them think they are superior to every other race, nation, etc) mahinda is looked upon as a 'Great Leader', 'King' or 'Savior of the Sinhalese', etc. Sound familiar?

Again, I'm not doubting you- and I'm not saying that that video is fake. Just that there isn't much hard evidence to support either case. Merely playing devil's advocate...

The UN, US government, alot of governments you get the picture, The world is corrupt even though that is a huge generalization. I'm sorry to hear about the events happening in your country however I don't know very much about it.

 

PS : Is Colombo a Sri Lankan name? It sounds Italian to me.

...And, guess what? there's a chapter about the atrocities against Tamils in SL in my Pol. science textbook..Like any other situation, democratic countries are simply not willing to help one another/work for a cause..a lá - India, U.S, or be it the UN....What a hypocritical world we live in!

It's a pity that no one cares about this country... I can only hope that better days will come, even if -let's be realists- since you have no natural resources, or at least something worth "stealing", chances are very slim. If I was you I would probably seek out a better future abroad, so congrats for staying there.

 

Is there much internet censorship?

Namaste brother.

 

I'm not really surprised about Bharat, since the Congress is in power.

 

@gtaivpc, Yep, my plans are to migrate in the future, assuming I don't 'mysteriously disappear' before that happens. People who speak of the government's atrocities here have a very high tendency to 'mysteriously disappear', have 'accidents', etc tounge.gif.

 

There's a lot of internet censorship. The government simply labels sites such as those that speak of it's atrocities, corruption, etc as 'supporting Tamil terrorists' or as 'lies to overthrow our Great Leader' and simply blocks them. Porn sites which contain Sri Lankans are blocked off, I wouldn't have an issue with this, if it wasn't for the fact that the government has issued a manhunt for people who star in porn.

 

Basically the country is fast becoming a Nazi state.

Don't know much about the political situation there, but is there any type of resistance there? I mean, if you're going to get executed for being a terrorist, you might as well be one.

The Tamil Tigers are the main separatist fighters in Sri Lanka, I don't know much about whether or not they engage in terrorist activity but it certainly suits the government of Sri Lanka to assume so. I know that they have definitely been engaged in fighting with government forces recently though.

The LTTE were the main resistance. While they initially stood up for a good cause (to protect Tamils), they too ended up committing some horrendous crimes against humanity, not matched to what the government has done though.

 

But I can tell you this, it was the Sinhalese people who started the conflicts. The reason the LTTE rose to power was because Tamils were being severely discriminated by most Sinhalese people throughout the nation.

 

Now that the LTTE is gone, the government freely abducts, murders and tortures Tamils as they wish.

 

Oh and I'm sure you guys don't know of this, but the SL Army used white phosphorous against civilians during the war. The phosphorous was supplied by pakistan and satellite imaging provided by Bharat.

 

Yep, that's how bad it is.

 

Edit:

 

@Josh, The LTTE no longer exists bro. Their leader (Velupillai Prabhakaran) was killed and the LTTE was defeated in 2009.

 

Oh and if you guys want to know more about the events that go on here, visit TamilNet. It's blocked in Sri Lanka as revealing racism and discrimination is considered 'terrorism' here smile.gif.

 

These are some recent noteworthy events. All of these happened just this month btw, so you can imagine what it's like.

Here's what bugs me. They probably didn't need to strip their victims. Alright, they're killing them, that's one thing. But why in Gods name did they remove their clothes? They could have at least afforded them that small level of dignity. You should always treat your enemies fairly, sooner or later you might fall into their hands.

 

I can, somehow, understand why they're killing people like this. I mean, if both sides have been murdering each other for years, those wounds aren't just going to heal. Tit-for-tat, primal justice, an endless cycle of violence that leads both sides momentarily satisfied but forever trapped in misery. Surely though, there will come a time when they choke on all that blood and want something more for their children.

 

I doubt there will be any kind of peaceful coexistence in any of our lifetimes, but just agreeing to let each side live in privacy would be a start. From there, future generations could move towards a lasting peace, or perhaps just repeat the same mistakes over and over again. It's all very confusing.

I knew about this situation long ago but never really looked into the detail surrounding it. Explains also why my Sri Lankan friend who now of course lives in England has Tamil Tigers as his facebook photo. I'm not sure whether that is a bad thing or a good thing, in the view of the people of course because by the sounds of it, the government (As usual) seems to be the bad guys.
