WikiLeaks & SRI LANKA       -      "A LEGITIMATE RESPONSE TO UNPROFESSIONAL DIPLOMACY"

As you all know, Wikileaks recently released US diplomatic confidential briefings exchanged between the State Department in Washington and the embassies in other countries throughout the world. Among them, there are many cables exchanged between the State department of Washington and the American embassy in Sri Lanka.
According to Wikileaks, the US diplomatic body in Sri Lanka and other interested parties had acted with anger, hatred trying to settle their political scores against Sri Lanka and have given no room for the truth.
Consequences of this unacceptable behavior, are now experienced by the Sri Lankans; for a crime which they have not created. As a matter of fact, they have a right to speak against this injustice.

This segment - "a legitimate response to unprofessional diplomacy" takes facts one by one providing a true insight to the issue and speaks to the whole world on Sri Lankans’ behalf.




Wikileaks and Sri Lanka (R. Sampanthan)

2010-12-17

The SINHALAYA News Agency, Colombo, Sri Lanka:
Conquering LTTE terrorists by the most dedicated and professional Sri Lankan Security forces, was the most unexpected and the heartbreaking blow for the pro-LTTE Tamil Diaspora including the Western and European countries which had been breeding grounds for LTTE terrorism.

Ever since there had been tiny but yet failed incidents were the shattered parts of the LTTE terrorist organization trying to regroup with the support of the Western, European countries and their allied media; such as the fake war crime issue which the American and British are very fond of.

The grudge the Western countries having over Sri Lanka for not obeying “the Western way of War” and their efforts to take revenge is also evident to the majority of Peace-loving intelligent Sri Lankans. Western countries are now trying to use their diplomatic bodies in Sri Lanka to put their anti-Sri Lankan agenda into work. And these diplomatic bodies are in turn joining local pro-LTTErs to their plan.

The leaked US top confidential cable stated below is only one example for it.

6. (S) Other Tamil politicians have not made public statements on accountability and are generally more pragmatic in their thinking. In our multiple recent discussions with TNA leader R. Sampanthan, he said he believed accountability was important and he welcomed the international community’s -- especially the diaspora’s -- interest in the issue. But Sampanthan was realistic about the dim prospects for any Sri Lankan government to take up the issue. Granting that governments in power do not investigate their own, Sampanthan nevertheless said it was important to the health of the nation to get the truth out.
While he believed the Tamil community was “vulnerable” on the issue and said he would not discuss “war crimes” per se in parliament for fear of retaliation, Sampanthan would emphasize the importance of people knowing the truth about what happened during the war. We also have asked Sampanthan repeatedly for his ideas on an accountability mechanism that would be credible to Tamils and possible within the current political context, but he has not been able to provide such a model.

According to this confidential cable, there had been several rounds of discussions madam Butenis has had with R.Sampanthan. The funniest thing is as per her knowledge; the TNA (Tamil National Alliance) is the credible source for her to give explanations about reconciliation solutions to the Tamils. (in a previous confidential cable she had referred TNA member Pathmini Sithamparanathan)

Why she holds secret talks only with these TNA members ?

R.Sampanthan is a mere MP. If madam Butenis seriously wanted to know about the War, she could have also held discussions with other MPs. Parliament comprises of 225 MPs; then why its only Sampanthan ?
To know the actual face of the War, the best source is the general public. There are the ones who suffered most from LTTE terrorists. R.Sampanthan is a LTTE ally and there are no doubts about it. R. Sampanthan is a decent terrorist. In many previous occasions he and his party members had been having close contacts with the LTTE terrorists and become their puppets.



According to this confidential cable, R. Sampanthan has given a clue as “war crimes have happened and wish there could be an International intervention into it.” He had given a push to those who are trying to trap Sri Lanka on fake war crime issues.
None are dare to accuse LTTE terrorists for the actual war crimes they had committed.

The reason given by Sampanthan for not addressing the issue in the Parliament is, because he is in “fear of retaliation”. Even without his “accountability” question, still there is room if his “imaginary attackers” to attack him. Throughout his political history all he has done is acting against 87% of the population of the country. Had he ever got attacked ?

However, madam Patricia Butenis had “repeatedly” asked R. Sampanthan to come up with “an accountability mechanism”. For what purpose ?

For us it sounds as if she had been spying over Sri Lanka on her bosses’ interests. Tamil people enjoy privileges as much as any other citizen does in Sri Lanka. So what’s more Sampanthan is asking for ?

This confidential cable shows what exactly the assignment of madam Butenis. America is never to solve the problems, but to put fuel to it. Such western countries do enjoy the plight of the nation which is victimized by terrorism and this is what the State department has assigned her for – to create problems in Sri Lanka.

Finally, the well-educated intelligent Sri Lankans have already realized that
Butenis is the Bullet and US State department is the bloody shameless Gun

representing the real war criminals!
