Americans Praise Sri Lankan Politicians who Orchestrated Genocide

Meet twelve of the American Nazi's, standing up for state terrorism as Sri Lanka stands before a war crime commission in Geneva.

This is what 12 U.S. politicians are praising...
This is what 12 U.S. politicians are praising; the Genocide of Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka, killed by their government.

(SALEM) - It isn't enough that American politicians almost unilateral support Israel's apartheid politics of injustice, and the constant murder and destruction of Palestinians; now 12 senior U.S. politicians are standing up for the Genocidal leaders of Sri Lanka who sent up to 160,000 people to their graves in 2009 for their affiliation with the wrong religion, for being members of a minority, ethnic culture.

The letter and information below, is proof positive that Americans are as bad as any government that has ever existed, Sri Lanka's Genocide isn't some joke or exaggeration, it is the most heinous case of state terrorism in modern history, that is if you overlook the Iraq war.

Women and little girls gang raped to death, little kids hung by their necks execution-style, thousands of civilians told to enter 'safe zones' and then targeted and blown to smithereens. This is the government of Sri Lanka and it is in Geneva right now in front of the United Nations Human Rights Commission, who are evaluating war crime charges for the bloody massacre that spanned from 2005 to 2009.

Since these politicians have place their names behind this 'support' of war criminals, I suggest that our readers write to them, each one, and make them answer for this, make them accountable, write stories, expose their treacherous ways that support the gruesome killings that left tens of thousands without parents, without children, widowed, forgotten. And the crimes continue constantly in Sri Lanka, terrible brutality toward the minority Tamil population is a daily regimen.

Jack Kingston (R-Georgia), Ben Chandler (D-Kentucky), Healh Shular (D-North Carolina), Daniel Lipinski (D-Illinois), Dave Riechert (R-Washington), Jeff Dundan (R-South Carolina), Michael T. McCaul (R-Texas), Frank Pallone (D-New Jersey), Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas), Judy Chu (D-California), Hansen Clarke (D-Michigan) and Ed Royce (R-California).

These lawmakers view the terror campaign against the Sri Lankan Tamils as, 'An opportunity to move forward" and wouldn't have those Nazi's in the Third Reich facing prosecution for their crimes have loved that reasoning?

Truly, these are people who have no business in office, they are supporters of cruel murderers and rapists and they favor governments that murder their own citizens.

Text of letter:
The President,
The White House,
1600 Pennsylvania Ave,
Washington DC, 20500
Dear Mr President

‘We are writing today in support of a strong United States- Sri Lanka partnership.

After three decades of internal strife, Sri Lanka has an opportunity to move forward as a unified nation guided by its democratic ideals and institutions. The United States and Sri Lanka have a proud history of mutual commitment, and we believe that strong American support can have a significant mutual benefit and positive influence on Sri Lanka’s future economic and social prosperity.

‘In post-conflict Sri Lanka, we are encouraged by significant progress in resettling almost all of the hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons and providing family reunification, vocational training and job placement for those Sri Lankans. In addition, we are encouraged by the ongoing negotiations with minority political parties and the strengthening of the democratic process. We welcome Sri Lanka’s willingness to preemptively report on its civil conflict by establishing a politically diverse and independent Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission. As Sri Lanka pursues these positive steps, it should know it has a friend in the United States.

‘A strong relationship between the United States and Sri Lanka supports joint economic prosperity in areas of trade, job creation and foreign direct investment. Of particular note, we understand that Sri Lanka has opened dialogues with a number of US companies for the acquisition of heavy equipment, aircraft, energy technologies and other products necessary for its development efforts. In addition, we look forward to opportunities to strengthen our mutual strategic interests in foreign policy and defence by maintaining the peace in the waterways near and along the Indian Ocean and continuing a military training partnership.

‘For the first time in more than a generation, the United States has an opportunity to develop a relationship with a united Sri Lanka. Accordingly, we urge your Administration to take steps to strengthen our ties with Sri Lanka.


Jack Kingston (R-Georgia)

They say, "In post-conflict Sri Lanka, we are encouraged by significant progress in resettling almost all of the hundreds of thousands of internally displaced persons..."

These politicians speak with forked tongues; people in Sri Lanka remain missing, I hear from displaced family members frequently through our coverage of this important, ignored story.

I have to wonder if these American politicians are extremely stupid, uninformed, or if they just aren't phased by the knowledge of what happened. Maybe they have accepted their place in the world as representatives of a government that would have attacked Iraq on bogus information and killed up to a million and a half people. Maybe they are anti-Hindu and anti-Christian, since those are the people the Sinhalese Buddhist government of Sri Lanka slaughtered.

Jack Kingston is one of many people in America today who have no concern for the crimes committed against humanity, and the same goes for the other 11, no wonder the U.S. is so heavily compromised today on every level, with politics and media leading the pack of wolves.

Psst...it was not tamil vs sinhala. the upper caste tamils colluded with the sinhalas and oppressed the lower caste tamils for centuries. when the lower caste tamils starting pushing back, starting in the 50's and 60's, the upper caste guys pushed their rise with the help of the sinhala force. It is only a conspiracy theory for now, but one that surely warrants an investigation.

I thought have seen worse things but what happen doesn't have name killing innocent children is like to kill our GOD, if they believe in GOD. They don't have any heart at all.

Yoga V March 6, 2012 7:39 am (Pacific time)

Thanks to spread this information to world. Srilanka not only killed the tamilians and also destroyed their 1500 year old books and palm leaf manuscripts.

If your idea of being fair is to divide our small country that would be something that will never ever happen.. we will fight to the last man before we even let some terrorists separate our country.. I am willing to bet my house on this...

If you are looking for more graphic pictures I can provide many pics of all the LTTE atrocities Given below is a quote from the FBI website " http://www.fbi.gov/news/stories/2008/january/tamil_tigers011008 As terrorist groups go, it has quite a résumé: Perfected the use of suicide bombers; Invented the suicide belt; Pioneered the use of women in suicide attacks; Murdered some 4,000 people in the past two years alone; and Assassinated two world leaders—the only terrorist organization to do so. No, it’s not al Qaeda or Hezbollah or even HAMAS. The group is called the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) or the Tamil Tigers for short. Needless to say, the Tamil Tigers are among the most dangerous and deadly extremists in the world. For more than three decades, the group has launched a campaign of violence and bloodshed in Sri Lanka, the island republic off the southern coast of India. Its ultimate goal: to seize control of the country from the Sinhalese ethnic majority and create an independent Tamil state. Along the way, it has launched suicide attacks, assassinated politicians (including a government minister this week and even the Sri Lankan President), taken hostages, and committed all of kinds of crimes to finance its operations. The resulting civil war has taken the lives of nearly 70,000 Sri Lankans on both sides of the conflict since 1983 alone. Tim, I guess you still refuse to believe the LTTE killed thousands of civilians including tamils... You are just another biased journalist on the payroll of the LTTE front organizations..

SriLankan Pride March 2, 2012 8:31 pm (Pacific time)

Tim King have you verified some of the pictures that you are publishing? Some of those pictures published are of Sinhala civilians killed by Tamil Tigers - the terrorist group eliminated by the lawfully elected Government of Sri Lanka whom you have much hatred for. Here's a link to a video of all the Sinhala civilians that were killed by the Tamil terrorists..

Tim King: Yes I have thanks, and they are all exactly what I represent them to be.  The referenced video has a whole bunch of unverified incidents listed and two small photos at the end, neither of which make your point, did you realize that the video is nearly void of pictures?  Just asking.  The sad thins is that even if your video's numbers were true, the Sinhalese victims would amount to less than one percent of the Tamil victims, so it fails to make your point.  As a final note, it is sad that any person has had to die over this stubborn religious government, all it ever had to do was to be fair, and therefore the blood of each of these victims is on the hands of the government itself first and foremost..

The following is a sample letter all readers are free to copy and use in mailing or E-Mailing these senior politicians. I join Tim is wishing that you would consider doing so:

March 1, 2012

Dear Congressman Kingston:
Your support of the Sri Lankan war criminals, as evidenced by the letter you recently penned to the President of the United States, is not just surprising, it is repulsive. That anyone would support a government that takes part in the killing of innocent children is simply not understandable to me. Rape, torture, and mass murder of civilians constitute crimes that must not go unpunished.

Is it simply that you did not do your homework? Can it be that you simply jumped onto a bandwagon initiated by your favorite special interest group? How could you in all good conscience throw your support behind the monsters who could perpetrate such heinous deeds?

I beg you sir, to reconsider your actions. Do not lend your name and the honor of our country to a government that would gang-rape and kill children.

Interesting..even tho I 100% agree with the previous comments, if I asked those who wrote the comments who they support for president, they would probably say Romney,Santorum, or Obama...As mentioned..God help us all...Ron Paul is the ONLY answer to this "out of control havoc, murder and lies". Ron Paul has spoke out against not only these illegal death wars, but the economy for 3 decades...He has been RIGHT 100% of the time. From "BLOWBACK" to government spending and the police state...He spoke it all, warning us, long ago.

Stephen February 29, 2012 11:18 am (Pacific time)

Major applause to Mr. Tim King...I was just thinking about this subject this morning. I was hoping I would find an article on salem-news that I could voice my frustration, and still be on subject...and here it is. I am so frustrated at the stupidity of the American people, but I am MORE frustrated how the powers that be use the indoctrination, system(skools), the mainstream media, drugs etc to keep/make the people stupid. I will ask someone, do you think we should be bombing countries in the middle east? THey say YES..Then I ask them if they heard of NDAA..THey never heard of it..I ask if they know that Donald Rumsfeld and Saddam Hussein were best friends in the 80's and it was the U.S. who gave him biological weapons...THey dont know..I ask them how many innocent civilians have been killed in Libya since NATO started bombing..They dont know..I ask them about the mutations of human beings in Fallujah..They dont know..ALl they know is what the tv tells them...One woman said to me "I know what is going on, I read the wall street journal from cover to cover"....God help us all. Thanks again Tim.

Voice of Accountability February 29, 2012 1:38 am (Pacific time)

I've been following this closely for the last three years, and the importance of every article like this being published in the U.S. is of paramount importance, something influenced the shift in the interest of American politicians, it wasn't the standard mainstream channels. Just know that peace is only achieved through accountability, SriLanka must be held accountable and nothing less ls acceptable, let us not breed an environment where nations believe they can get away with this....

Matt Johnson February 29, 2012 1:22 am (Pacific time)

I contacted every one and should have a hundred friends doing the same by tomorrow, come on everyone and pass this story out, make sure these "politicians" are made to answer for thinking like a pack of Nazis.  The one from Georgia Jack Kingston, who is leading these wolves.. was recently wined and dined in Lanka, who paid for that?  And to repay that lovely vacation, he leads a group of top u.s. officials who raise no voice for the voiceless victims of the genocide which they deny tooth and nail at every turn. Justice for all- not just one, long live Tamil Eezham!

anon February 28, 2012 11:48 pm (Pacific time)

truly terrible that they are supporting this. makes me feel terrible
