Instead of blaming the US for courting Tamil demands, Sri Lanka needs to engage the power players positively, work-out a compromise, keep good of the promises they made and build a strong case for Sri Lanka with the US politicians. They need to open an ear in the White House and with the powerful senators.
Diaspora Tamils courting the powerful US political establishment while Sri Lankan leaders courting the increasingly dwindling number of dictators will gain nothing for Sri Lanka, only more road blocks. This is clearly apparent in Geneva today. Either Sri Lankan leaders need to go back to diplomacy 101 or agonizingly wait for the air to cutoff.

Thanks, but you are wasting the time with these guys who are already biased.
Those who speak for their benifit these guys, will carry him or them on their heads with out realising (or pretending).
Those who speak different to their view they will mudsling or impeach or find a small point to imprison or worst come to worst send the white van.
I like your comments as it gives us idea of tamil separists....how they exagerrate real situation...how they try to mudsling the country as a whole....how they motivate the other communities against our country....It is realy worth...

All the forum members commented above , are in agreement with Mr Faleomavaega, the American Congressman, have full praise about his speech and despise the US Govt action on Sri Lanka. Since there are no contrary opinions, it seems most of the forum members are also of the same view.

However, please carefully read and analyze the speech of the Congressman . He criticizes the behavior of US Government in certain situations in the past ( civil war ,Vietnam, Indonezia ..) and opined how it should be in the future. This is what he says specifically, on US Govt behavior with Sri Lankan Government authorities.

1. US simply cannot afford to lose Sri Lanka due to its strategic importance
2. The United States should praise the work that Sri Lankan government has done in the North and East
3. In the proposed resolution …US fails to mention one , not even one positive development for Sri Lanka
4. Calls upon a better way forward (with SL Government ) rather than UN resolution
5. resolution should also be withdrawn for focusing only on the last few months of the war and failing to acknowledge therefore almost 30 years
6. “We also do not need to criticize Sri Lanka for borrowing money from China

Now, let’s look at the BASIC facts relating to the current issue.
Actually the issue relates to a proposed Resolution, at UNHRC session being held in Geneva these days. This proposed resolution (as well as the resolution adapted at UNHRC last year) request the Government of Sri Lanka , to implement the recommendations of a Commission (LLRC), appointed by the President of Sri Lanka in May 2010, three years ago .
This commission headed by aformer Attorney General comprised of 8 members hand picked by the President of Sri Lanka. Report and recommendations of this Commission has been accepted by the President, approved by Cabinet of Ministers as well as Members of Parliament. About a year ago, a committee headed by Secretary to the President ,has been appointed to work out modalities in implementation.
If the US sponsored resolution is adapted , UNHRC is also asking to implement the recommendations of the LLRC, commission.

The Congressman doesn’t say anything specific about LLRC, and the UNHRC resolution is basically on implementation of LLRC recommendations .
So......, there is nothing in conflict, here .

Then....., what’s all this fuss about ?

Post independence era majority of Sri Lankans prefer the left wing oriented political view. It doesn’t matter SLPA, UNP or JVP, majority of the general public still think America as an enemy. Unfortunately our politicians also do not want change this attitude from us. The only clear exception we had in the past was JRJ’s regime. However due to various reasons he failed to get the Yankee support when the country wanted it most.

We were confused by Soviets lead communist countries. (There were few good thing but many bad things happened because of this).

Things has changed now except few countries such Sri Lanka. Sadly we are still holding the anti-western slogans. OK I agree it’s extremely difficult to get support from countries like Canada due to their internal pressure from Tamil diaspora. But we should cooperate with Americans (or at least not go against them all the time).
If we agree with one thing we will get something else what we need. That’s how it works with Americans. They will not give/offer anything for free.

If we go on talking about JR regime it would be an endless one but I have to mention one thing that is Due to his poor diplomacy with India and more favourism towards the USA LTTE became strong from support of India and that poor diplomacy with India saved the life of Prabhakaran when he was cornered which leads another 20years war.
When making friends with international community I think we should select friends who will not interfere with our internal affairs.....It does not really matters whether it is communist country or any other country. We should not be a puppet government of any other country whether it is USA,Russia,China or India.
In my opinion USA is too much interfering with other countries affairs especially where there is no puppet government. So I like to keep them at hand distance without making them our enemies.

All over the world know very well the war was won with the help of USA, India, China, Pakistan, Russia and other countries.
To get help from them MR regime promised a lot (Political solution etc etc) and after winning the war started to decive them.(may be he thought they are like the modayas those who voted for him)

If you do not know properly about how the war was concluded, then better to ask your friends in the power they will disclose all the helps what they got from each country. Obviously they can't tell all those help in front of the public because already they made an image that the war only won by themself.

I strongly believe US initially, did provide satellite info. re enemy locations, but since the day Obama came to power US assistance declined. We would have got a better treatment from a Republican president.

By Uditha Jayasinghe
The time has come to decide whether the Rajapaksa regime or country is more important insisted the main Opposition Leader yesterday, calling for the Government to implement key accountability processes including holding elections in the north before the island is labelled as a “pariah State” by the international community.


Taking an impassioned stance, United National Party (UNP) Leader Ranil Wickremesinghe requested the Government to hold a meeting with Opposition parties before the second US-backed resolution on Sri Lanka is passed at the ongoing United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) insisting that “it is still not too late”.

“We can meet in April and put together a plan on key issues such as the implementation of the LLRC report. Even if the resolution is passed, action will not be taken immediately so we can come to an accord in April.
We’ll even come to Mattala, we might not come by plane but we’ll come by car,” Wickremesinghe told media.

The draft resolution presented last week in Geneva calls for international investigations into allegations of human rights including war crimes, which the Government has vehemently fought against and denied.
Questioning whether the regime led by President Mahinda Rajapaksa is more important than the country,

Wickremesinghe demanded that the Government take urgent steps to promote human rights and reconciliation by kick-starting broken-down discussions with the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) and other parties for a political solution.

“So we are calling on the Government to implement the LLRC report. There are two options for us – either have international investigations or implement the LLRC and hold the northern provincial council elections by June the latest. If we do that we can avoid any more adverse steps by international organisations. We are willing to work with the Government but there is no response.”

Wickremesinghe insisted that the Government’s continuous stonewalling on addressing reconciliation issues was pushing Sri Lanka towards being labelled as a “pariah State”.

“Once an investigation begins in Sri Lanka, it affects all of us. We become the pariah State and we become the citizens of that pariah State. All this time when we went out, people said ‘you are from Sri Lanka, it’s a very good country,’ that is what our generation has enjoyed. The next generation if they go out will hear ‘you have come from this pariah nation, you have killed so many people and you are not even investigating into the human rights violations’. So it’s useless shouting at anyone else. It is the Government that accepted the human rights standards so now it is useless to shout and blame the TNA, UN or anyone else.”

Wickremesinghe recalled that in 2009 the Government gave a commitment to the Secretary General of the UN to work on a political solution that is acceptable to all parties and probe all the violations on international human rights law in Sri Lanka.

“This was further endorsed by the resolution which Sri Lanka and its friends introduced at the last Human Rights Council where we accepted the jurisdiction of the UN, the Human Rights resolution and the Council to go into human rights violations, further promising to bring about a political solution and then in 2011 further commitment was made before the Darusman Panel by the Sri Lankan delegation led by the then Secretary of Foreign Affairs M.S. Jayasinghe, Attorney General Mohan Peiris and Permanent Representative to the UN Palitha Kohana that the Government would take action either under military law or criminal law with regard to the violations of human rights by security forces personnel.”

Living up to these pledges is the only way to avert a second resolution, Wickremesinghe emphasised.http://www.ft.lk/2013/03/14/ranil-asks-govt-regime-or-country/
