Sri Lankan Citizens - Lives that are less worthy for “Human Rights” champions
We Sri Lankan citizens need no recalling of the atrocities that we have suffered in the hands of the LTTE (Tamil Tiger) terrorists. The three decades of a terrorist campaign conducted under the facade of a liberation struggle, aided with the unstinted support of hypocrites in the international media and in various non-governmental organizations have robbed us of our right to life, sought to destroy our nation, and devoured over 70,000 lives of Sri Lankan citizens. And it continues to do so … though we, the citizens of this small island have finally shed all our differences and united to fight this menace.
Our unity is indeed not without results. An end to the menace is at hand. The dark clouds of our misery have started drifting away. The gates of the mono-ethnic hellhole in Wanni are fast crumbling with our soldiers, backed by the resolution of our people, steadily marching forward. This modest effort is not to manifest the will of our people or the faith that they have kept on the commitment of the soldiers, but to inform the world about the kind of terrorism that we have been dealing with.
What underpins our effort is our determined opposition to the vicious forces that are desirous of continued bloodshed in our country. It is these forces comprising hypocrites in the fourth state, dollar vultures in NGO’s, and politicians with pusillanimity beyond embarrassment that have been working against all our efforts to rid our country of terrorism.
Like carrions on the trail of for carcasses, the mean spirited who work in the above groups have made a lucrative business of our continued sufferings. Whenever the terrorists commit carnage, they always cloak the facts with unsubstantiated comments and justify the attacks. Terrorist attacks against Sri Lankan citizens are shown to the world as fruits of a successful liberation struggle. Whenever the terrorists are pushed to the end, these people jump up to save the terrorists by disseminating untruths, half truths and diabolical lies across the globe about our country. Sri Lanka’s struggle against terrorism is shown to the world as a genocidal war against the minority.
Thus, little has been known to the world of the true nature of the terrorism that Sri Lankans have been fighting. The photos we have posted in this feature were never intended to be published on a website. Yet, we are left with no other option than to resurrect the tormenting memories of the innocent who had suffered the most violent deaths in the hands of terrorists, when the irresponsible swashbucklers in the international media continue act in complicity to the Goebbelisian propaganda project of the terrorists.
We seek empathy with all the peace loving people in the world who value life by looking at the sufferings we have undergone. We request all interested in our country, to make thorough study of the conflict and the true nature of the LTTE, and not just a cursory glance at one sided stories and literature often published by anti Sri Lankan campaigners when arriving at conclusions about the country. We ask those worthies who try to teach human rights to us whether the lives of Sri Lankan citizens are less worthy than theirs.
