FLASHBACK: Sex Abuse and Murder in Sri Lanka

(SALEM) - (Follow hundreds of stories about Sri Lanka on

It has been a little more than a year since I wrote this shocking story about the horrible acts against Tamil civilians in Sri Lanka that took place during the end years of the country's nearly three-decade long civil war between the separatist Tamil Tigers and the Sri Lankan government.

Sri Lanka's actions are back in front of the United Nations Human Rights Council and UN Human Rights High Commissioner, Navi Pillay, says Sri Lanka has broken its promise to improve human rights in the island nation.

Pillay has also issued a stern warning to the Sri Lankan Government not to repeat last year’s intimidation and threats against human rights defenders at next week’s UN Human Rights Council meeting to examine Sri Lanka’s progress on human rights and post-war reconciliation with Tamils.

This article, in spite of being almost a year old, is one of our top viewed and commented upon stories month after month consistently in 2013. As hard as it is to take in, this fact means a great deal.

Exposing atrocities vividly online is one of the most powerful, underutilized options we Human Rights journalists have at our disposal. We make sure that the memories of Sri Lanka's war crimes follows their officials around like a bad smell.

Here is the article from March 2013:

I have written several articles examining the terrible crimes against innocent women and girls that occurred during the Sri Lanka civil war and the ensuing Genocide that enveloped the Tamil population in the island country's northern region.

The conflict wiped out most of the resistance force, the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam - aka 'Tamil Tigers'), and tens of thousands of innocent defenseless civilians who were directly targeted.

Along with the carnage came a barrage of sex crimes against Tamil women and girls that defy real description.


The shocking images are bloody and horrible and yet very important, as Sri Lanka stands accused of war crimes and is the subject of a resolution calling for several measures of atonement and clarity, not that anything could ever ever be enough.

Humiliation, torture, children murdered in obscene ways, military leaders with white flags gunned down while they surrendered, white van disappearances that strike horror into the heart Tamil people.

The images attest to human cruelty that is simply beyond the imagination of western people whose governments when united, most of all, have a chance of forcing change on nations like this that by policy, practice deadly, mass murder against their own citizens.

Sri Lanka's actions against its own people stand as a textbook example of state terrorism. There was nothing rational or reasonable or justifiable about directing people into safe zones and then bombing them, or killing old men and old women, chasing families down, one atrocity after another.

They are all photos of war crimes that took place in 2009, the photos have been authenticated, there are different versions of the photos and video, the SLA did a good job documenting their deeds.

At the bottom of this article is a quote from a man claiming to be a former Sri Lanka soldier; that confirms in my opinion, our worst suspicions, that it was even worse than we can imagine. FYI: (GRAPHIC) PHOTOS REMOVED VIA DEMAND FROM GOOGLE

Plotting Genocide

Before making strident moves to ethnically cleanse the civilian population, Sri Lanka wiped out and silenced all journalists who were sympathetic to the Hindu and Christian Tamils.

Then, the United Nations observers were asked to leave by Sri Lanka's government; the UN ordered them to clear out, and this left the Tamils at the hands of the Sinhalese Buddhist regime of Sri Lanka President Majinda Rajapaksa, to die without witness... but not completely.

As these terrible photos testify, the Sri Lanka Army (SLA) soldiers like to photograph their handiwork. They rape and abuse women, murder them, and then abuse their corpses, for the camera.

Many Tamils recorded the attacks they suffered, and a great deal of media was preserved somehow, even though so many of the people who took the pictures and video died.

Where their images of suffering and death end, the SLA soldier's videos and photos begin. There have been officers of the Sri Lankan Army who have stepped forward to corroborate some of the darkest claims. Sri Lanka denies journalists access to the war zone, many disappeared people remain missing, stories of secret camps are rife, torture is commonplace.


New Images of Isaippiriya

I have written at length about the tragic loss of a young, highly talented journalist name Shoba, who was more commonly known by the name Isaippiriya. The images on the right show her in two vastly different settings; murdered in a Sri Lanka killing field where soldiers stripped the dignity of women before terminating their lives, and holding a small child (see: Two of Sri Lanka's Foulest War Crimes).

She was a reporter for TamilNet and other sources, and also worked as an actress, she sang and she danced. She also had a young child who died in the war a short time before she was molested and tortured and killed.

The group of women represented here in death are, Sri Lanka wants you to believe... terrorists.

Isaippiriya's story is moving because she is an example of who the Tamil Tigers in so many cases are and were; versus what they are portrayed to be by the Sri Lankan government and media.

People do not choose the place of their birth, they don't ask for their particular station in life, or what family or economic setting they are born into; what we do know is that all human beings have the same basic needs, and under the UN Declaration of Human Rights, and by the simple basis of common sense, people need to have both religious freedom, and a number of pre-established Human Rights.

A gentle soul by all accounts of people who knew her, the SLA would later report that she was a high ranking military officer in the LTTE, she was no such thing.

In fact Isaippiriya had health-related issues that prevented her from even wearing a uniform for the Tigers.

LTTE Still Active

In her honor, and the members of the LTTE who fought the SLA in the Vanni and held out against tremendous odds, it is important to say that the LTTE is not inactive, and we have had recent contact from members of the military group and we are assured they are in fact, not a 'defeated' organization in any respect.

Some of the people who choose to leave comments on this story will charge that the LTTE was a 'terrorist' organization and the United States, which recently Murdered 1.5 million in Iraq, is who helped achieve this dubious designation for the Tamil Tigers.

What that same of group of people will not talk about, is how the LTTE had not only backed off on its insistence for the independent state of Tamil Eelam in north Sri Lanka, but also that a cease fire was in effect when Rajapaksa and his forces launched the deadly war's final state, in 2005.

The EU and UN all followed suit in adding the LTTE to the terrorist list; of course it wouldn't be surprising to learn that those two groups recently killed more people in Libya taking out Gaddafi and arming the new band of U.S. friendly rogue Muslim extremists, than all of the LTTE victims combined.

And on the subject of honor and the military and war crimes, the LTTE was formed to fight the SLA, and in 1983, after a battle left 13 SLA soldiers dead, a radical Buddhist monk led a band of Sinhalese Lankans into Tamil neighborhoods to murder hundreds and hundreds in retribution for the 13 dead SLA soldiers.

The history, when closely examined, almost always shoots down the excuses for this apartheid, Genocidal government. It tells a tale that began with greedy British colonization and a division of the native Sinhala and Tamil people.

Tamils were given preference under British rule, and have paid the price for this ever since Ceylon, as it was called then, finally gained independence from the British in 1948.

The racist policies forced onto these people by the British is the formula for lingering hatred and violence.

Tamils forced Muslims out in the 1980's when tensions heightened, cruelty was dealt out by both sides, but the LTTE would have never even formed if a population accounting for 18% of a country is threatened.

While wishing for a peaceful future, I strongly respect the Tamil minority culture, who first labored for thirty years in peace to maintain and preserve their culture, and then spent another thirty years as an armed resistance with the only goal really being the autonomy of Tamil people and the preservation of their language and culture.

Tamil View

In an article titled: New War crimes Pictures emerge!, Fight4tamils compares the actions of Sri Lanka's soldiers in the last days of the war and Genocide, to a bunch of animals who staged one of the ugliest crime against humanity.

    The president Mahinda and his brother defence Secretary Gottabaya have instructed the military to show all their cruelity on the female Tamil Tiger cadres and Tamil girls. Military staged the horror which could be seen on these pictures and still the United Nations and ICC do not act on the criminals of Sri Lanka.

    It is shame that the major military commander Shavendra De Silva, who staged this crime is a Sri Lankan envoy to UN and UN secretary Ban Ki Moon keeping him in UN even after knowing the truth.

    Do you want to fight for the justice for these women and men? Please send this page to your local MP or any organisations and tell them to support the call for war crimes inquiry.

    Support the two major Tamil organisations who continue to fight for the justice, Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam via
    Global Tamil Forum via

I wish I could tell you the name of each of these young women, or even if they are definitely LTTE, I can't tell you about their families, talents and educations, much of the information died when they did.

There is one victim thankfully, Shoba, who we are very familiar with, perhaps at some point more information on the identity of the other victims will be gained.

I was moved by the following comments that have been posted online in regard to these photos:

Even the barbarians never did this type of crimes against a woman. Only the Sinhalese extremist can do this. The perpetrators must be brought to the international criminal court.Our women are not deserved to these crimes. - Kana

We have thousands of people rallying and campaigning to protect nature and trees, and yet the crimes again the Tamils in SL are ignored... what kind of world do we live in?? If we don't punish the people that did this, then these kind of atrocities will continue both in SL and worldwide!! - JFK

That rapist regime must answer to all women of the world and the men appreciate the sacredness of women. - Mike

A comment previously listed as originating from Colombo Telegraph, was listed out of context. The person that was attributed to, contacted, advising that we had only included part of a comment he had left on a Transcurrent article. The comment was not made in regard to these images or this article, this was a mistake on our part, we sincerely apologize for the error.

It is never our intention to misconstrue a comment in this way; context is extremely important. We have retracted the comment and owe the individual a strong apology for this oversight, stating for the record that the mistake was ours and we regret the fact that it occurred.

Story from 08 March 2012 concludes.

The ethnic cleansing that culminated in May 2009 took place under the watch of Major General Shavendra Silva, who headed the 58th Division, the same group that shot dead the Tigers surrendering with white flags. Navi Pillay, we know you want to do the right thing, use all your power and do everything you can to make this government accountable for its war crimes, bring our Tamil brothers and sisters their long-deserved justice, please.

Please hit the Facebook share button above, the Google Plus button is to the right of that, and the Twitter button is below. Also, feel free to leave your thoughts in a comment below.

As I continued researching the story of Isaippiriya, or 'Shoba', more information continued to emerge and I take her story personally because she was a journalist and because she lost a child before being abused and killed by the SLA. She like other Tamils, LTTE or not, lived in peace until the Rajapaksa regime decided to blatantly and illegally violate a standing, successful peace treaty. That is when the crimes against the Tamil people accelerated and escalated into a full-scale Genocide.

The photos above (FYI: (GRAPHIC) PHOTOS REMOVED VIA DEMAND FROM GOOGLE)clearly demonstrate that Isaippriyia's hands were tied behind her back. She plainly appears to be both a sex abuse and/or rape and murder victim, who was executed after being captured. This is obvious.

I was greatly surprised in June of last year when I received a video clip from London, recorded by the SLA itself, that showed her body with her hands untied being counted among dead Tamil Tiger militants. This clip of video is rock solid conclusive proof that Isaippriya's murdered corpse was staged by the Sri Lankan government under the direction of for a body count of 'enemy dead'. I owe great thanks to Donald Gnanakone and Vasuki Muruhathas for getting that videotape to our newsroom.

The war is already ended. Now, sri lanka is a peacefull country. Anyone can see the differance if you are to visit Jaffna, kilinochchi or Mulative today. There is a rapid development. Outsiders, It is better to mind your own business since We do not care about indians victims in Kashmeer, daily raping and all ther fucking babarians...

Other than the camps, the daily rape, the Sinhalasztion of  Tamil regions, yeah right....

Varun March 28, 2013 7:22 am (Pacific time)

The Sinhali women are so ugly, I've seen them when I visited Sri Lanka myself. And maybe those ugly women do not let the husbands have sex with them, and any sane man would never feel like fucking a Sinhali woman. So, they have sex only for the sake of making babies and not for intimacy (or maybe the women get children sleeping with tourists, as I've seen them flirting all the time). So the only possibility is for the Sinhali men to indulge in sex with the other women. But since even their own wives hate sleeping with them, they rape the innocent Tamil women and satisfy their brutal, cannibalistic and unsatisfied libido with the beautiful Tamil women. And they do not want to even give the poor Tamil women the honour of killing themselves. So, they kill them and feed their sadistic ego, because even the ugliest (there are not any though) of the Tamil will not be agreeing to have consensual sex with them, and even these ugliest (I repeat, there are no ugly Tamil women at all) Tamil women will be pretty and beautiful than the best Sinhali woman ever. Epitome of ugliness of Sinhali woman is the wife of the blood thirsty cannibalistic leader of Sri Lanka.

Sri Lanka did Crime to Humanity and the Sri Lankan Government must pay for it. Their crimes against women and children are unforgivable. I hope world leaders would unite against Sri Lanka and isolate the country from the rest of the world.

kathir March 19, 2013 12:48 am (Pacific time)

Now thanks to channel 4, the new evidence of the killing of prabakaran's son is thrown to light, now the whole world should know what the ****ing srilankan army and its administration has done to the innocent tamils who once lived in peace, in srilanka, but now they are not alive. The Indian Govt should act and vote against the Srilankan bastards and favour the UN resolution in bringing down those blood thirsty murderers forever. The tamil people should never give up for the sake of the innocent souls of tamil to rest in peace. If the Indian Govt supports srilanka, then there will be severe consequences from then on.. It will be an un-erasable shame for Indians, to be called so in future.

Hear this dummies for those blood thirsty disgusting freaks."If u want peace, thn bring it in action", if LTTE killed innocents, there was enough evidence, then prove it, punish those who crossed the lines, but raping n murdering innocent tamils and common civilians is a dreadful scavenging shameful act.. its horrifying to see how cruel the srilankan army has tortured and raped n killed women n massacred the entire tamils maintaining peace in the country for so long.. please dont create enmity anymore please... i request you people to be a human, not cannibals.

Hey Mr. Editor. What is this story aboout a ceasefire being in place when the Government started the war???? Check your facts before writing or find another job. The LTTE repeatedly killed soldiers and bombed targets during the ceasefire. The world knows these facts though you were fast asleep. The war begun only when the terrorist LTTE closed the mavilaru sluice gates and deprived tens of thousands on people drinking and agricultural water. They derprived people of WATER. A basic human neccessity. That was the start of the end of the LTTE. Get your facts right you pimp tiger.

Editor: Yeah the LTTE was good, they really caused a lot of damage and scared many people. A cease fire had been in effect for years, sad if I know your country's  history better than you.  Your government could not defeat them on level terms.  Do I approve of the suicide bombs?  I think all violence is terrible, however I understand the motives of desperation.  You choose to show the ugly side of the Singhalese culture, I choose to convey the truth.

rajiv February 2, 2013 2:32 am (Pacific time)

after 30 years of bus train and town bombings, killings of priests, children, mothers and fathers, we are happy that the perpetrators are lying dead in the naked. We can atleast believe that there is someone called GOd to make sure the people who suffered at the hands of the LTTE were not left without justice. Hail the killers of the vicious tigers. Long live the brave warriors who murdered these vultures fighting in the name of freedom.

The editor is a sick diaspora shit eater. One who earns money from the diaspora. Be warned that the diaspora money comes from uneducated tamils who wash white mans shit and piss and earn money. Diaspora are toilet washers in western countries. If the tamils want another war, sure we are ready. Get better underwear next time so that when you die you atleast look sexy than the women on these.

Thanks Tim for your work on bringing the war criminals to justice. It's a Joke when some Jokers here write about how it's a lion land and how they defeated LTTE. Truth of the matter is that they could not do anything for 30 years and with the help of 7 other countries and lilitless crimes that LTTE is defeated. SL has the long history of beated by Tamils in a conventional wars...

Based on these comments i have read so far posted in this, i observed that Srilankan's want tamils to get out of their country.. but why such racism and blood thirsty crimes were committed to innocents instead of directly expressing, "we want to live alone and no other people are allowed to enter in our land, so please leave us and go where you came from", that would have been better. This is very cruel on humans, instead of talking tamils, srilankans, basically we are human beings, why don't those (***'Lankan army)psycho maniacs realize that? Mr. Prabhakaran , leader of TAMIL TIGERS knew what was happening to the tamils(humans in sense)and inorder to put an end to those suffering, he wanted to protect the innocent people of Tamil Nadu living in ***'Lanka, he created an army and aided them for their good.. Else there was no reason for Him to be there and fight..Has there been any news like Tamil people killed innocent Srilankans? or any women or kids being brutally murdered and raped and photographed and posted on the net showing the power of Tamil? NO,they wont, they will never do such being a TAMIL,they had HUMANITY, not to kill innocents, but to protect the Tamils was the Motive of TAMIL TIGERS.. This is the BIGGEST WAR CRIME in History of Mankind. Unfortunately Indian Govt aided in killing of the the one and only Source to protect the Suffering of the Tamil.. We just watched them die in vain.. just watched TV channels and posted comments like these.. Instead We ,if there were any humans left with heart n humanity, those murderers will be put in front of law and punished as per law.. I agree with a few good hearts in here, "JUDGEMENT DAY COMES and JUSTICE WILL NEVER DIE". God is here..Its upto everyone of us to end the inhumane, insane acts.. If We must give our Generations a lot safer and secure place to live, this is the time to act for it..

The media has presented all the evidence on the brutal massacre of innocent tamil women and children...Then why have'nt the Govt taken any necessary steps in bringing down those murderers in the name of Srilankan Army? How could they rape and murder our own species? pregnant women being killed with the foetus inside the mother's womb is very shocking. why don't those psychotic srilankan army men realize that they are not going to get away with these. Even the Indian government failed to take any action against these horrible murders of our tamil it just because we are tamils?? Is that the reason? Any one who protest against it are arrested for the reason of posting abusive / political conflict contents. This is the escapism and ignorance, nothing else. Even if They fail to do so, if there is any justice in any corner of this World, let those murderers remember that We will not rest until justice rises for the blood of the innocent tamil people who died for no reason.. We should never let any such to happen to our future generations.. We are not politicians or terrorists or race discriminators... We, the citizens of India have every right to fight for our justice and secured life.. If this continues ,then there's no place called HOME or PEACE..But The Judgment Day is not so far..

They could be Tamils, Sinhalese, SLA soldier, or LTTE terrorist. dont make ethnic crisis again in SL. we Tamils, Sinhalees, Muslims are living as a family. There is no Tamil - Sinhala crisis.

I fully support your efforts in exposing the horrors and injustice perpertrated by Sri Lanka. There can be no excuse for the murder of incombatants or the execution of prisoners. If the world stands by and allows these attrocities to go unpunished then we all need to bow our heads in shame. The UN should be unbias, but serves its own interests.Diplomacy rather than action and justice has prevailed once again.(Syria is the next failure of the UN). The people responsible for the systematic murder of its own citizens must be held to account. These acts cannot be brushed under the carpet and as civil human beings we have a moral obligation to seek justice for those who have died. As a former soldier and photographer I understand the difficulties you must be facing ...keep up the good work and once again shame on the UN.

Sanjay Anand, Australia June 11, 2012 4:52 pm (Pacific time)

The sickening morans who make degrading comments about these hapless victims are either sons or brothers of the murderous scavengers. These are one of the few images of the atrocities committed by the barbaric Srilankan regime. Oh my god I just can’t imagine how more than 40,000 [the real figure is much higher] tamils were butchered in cold blood. Just imagine the pain, sufferings and the torture these victims have gone through. The blood thirsty Sinhala army have absolutely shown no mercy for these defenceless victims. Their only crime was being a tamil. Even still after 3years the war has ended thousands of tamils including women, children and the elderly languishing in concentration camps behind barb wires, surrounded by the army and the paramilitaries. Daily there have been disappearances, rapes and all sort of things happening. Even the Nazi death camps had better facilities. Srilanka’s Rajapaksa and Syria’s Asaad are both cold blooded murderers. These monsters have unleashed terror on their own people. They will do whatever means to remain in power. And what the UN has done so far is absolutely nothing. The secretary general Bi Ki moon is bloody useless; he got to be the worst in history. There is ample evidence for war crimes against humanity and still the UN hasn’t done a thing. Even though it is heartbreaking to watch these images, but it is very important to expose the atrocities. Tim, please continue your great work. We all living in a civilised world but yet these dictators continue to live among us and brutally suppress their own people.

Editor: Extremely harsh comment; I guess you are proud of murdering little kids?  Are you familiar with the word 'punk'?  That is what I think of people who support terrorist government.  When you have more than 80% of the population, you have responsibilities.  The Sinhala majority had the ability to take advantage.  Your culture did this, no respect for others- bottom line.  The LTTE caused you thirty years of fear and grief and yet a cease fire was in effect when you started your illegal war, after killing the journalists.  I believe there is no time in history when the side that killed the press was the right, it has never happened.

 Tim King: I'm slowly learning that nearly all advocates for the killing fields and GoSL's liability are literally incapable of understanding how preposterous they sound denying such heavily documented instances of war crimes and human rights violations.  Cry about being taken to task, might as well scream at a wall!

How many sinhala tamil people killed by LTTE during 20 years That time Where were that Human right people.pls visit to see those..I know this will not appear o wall.

Tim King: Well you managed to get the LTTE listed as terrorists as you violated the cease-fire and went about exterminating them.  The Web is packed with stories about the way the Tigers successfully kicked the crap out of the SLA time and time again over a thirty year period because they were pushed to the point of violent resistance, what is the question?  You had to vastly outnumber them, have a thousand times the munition, and then still trick them in order to kill them.  If you're proud of what happened then no offence, but you are sick in the head, this is serious human treachery that took place.

Tim King, you have done a fantastic job by exposing the atrocities committed by the barbaric Srilankan army. The horrific treatment these poor girls endeavoured at the hands of the blood thirsty Sinhala army is beyond comprehension. Their only crime was being a Tamil. The UN celebrates national women’s day each year. Who is going to give justice to these victims and bring the murderous Rajapaksa brothers to the international criminal court? Definitely not under the leadership of toothless tiger Bi ki moon.

Sri Lanka Army Child-Killers have to have a sick mind to justify executing a child point-blank range. This was not collateral damage but a brutal murder of a child. By the way Sri-Lankan government killed 300 000 thousands of tamil civilians including children in periodic riots since 1948, when the LTTE leader was not born yet. The total number civilian casualties caused by the LTTE for the entire 26 years does not exceed 2000 at the most. Simply look up the archives of all the Sri-Lankan newspapers since 1978 that recorded civilian deaths caused by the LTTE and you won't even reach 1500 - throw in another 500 for all that were not recorded.

Thamby March 11, 2012 1:44 am (Pacific time)

The Problem in the island is the Srilanksn SINHELLA RACIST state not the SYMPTOM LTTE, Srilanka started ETHNIC CLEANSING of Tamils and Muslims as soon as the British left the island in 1948, that is 30 years before the LTTE even created by frustrated Tamils who did try all the democratic peaceful avenues to get an amicable solution due to the ULTRA RACIST nature of srilankan racist state, Now, Srilanka doing the same to the TNA – Majority Of Tamils voted for them – in the 19 Months talks which achieved NOTHING as Srilanka cannot even allow Tamils to have power over their LANDS nor to have Police for the North and East while Srilanka continue to SETTLE SINHALA people and 100% SINHALA Military families into the North and East where Tamils have been living even before the Sinhalese came to the island as IMMIGRANTSSrilnakan CENSUS reports show the REAL PATTERN OF SRILANKAN SYSTEMATIC ETHNIC CLEANSING of Tamils and Muslims from the North and East by Srilankan racist governments since 1948 to date – BTW DON’t BURN the CENSUS REPORTS as you always do to hide evidence of Tamils’ history -for example, The first British rulers held Censun in 1837 shown that JUST 18 SINHALESE lived in the Entire Tamil Areas called EELAM – North and East- and First Post Independent Srilankan Census reports shows that JUST 286 Sinhalese WORKERS existed in the Entire EELAM areas.

Sri Lanka: A child is summarily executed Footage of atrocity committed at the end of the government's war with the Tamil Tigers is revealed. A 12-year-old boy lies on the ground. He is stripped to the waist and has five neat bullet holes in his chest. His name is Balachandran Prabakaran and he is the son of the LTTE leader, Velupillai Prabhakaran. He has been executed in cold blood. Beside him lie the bodies of five men, believed to be his bodyguards. There are strips of cloth on the ground indicating that they were tied and blindfolded before they were shot – further evidence suggesting that the Sri Lankan government forces had a systematic policy of executing many surrendering or captured LTTE fighters and leading figures, even if they were children. The footage – dating from 18 May 2009 and which seems to have been shot as a grotesque "trophy video" by Sri Lankan forces – will be broadcast for the first time on Wednesday night in a Channel 4 film, Sri Lanka's Killing Fields: War Crimes Unpunished But it is the video evidence depicting the systematic and cold-blooded execution of bound, naked prisoners – and which also suggests sexual assault of naked female fighters – that continues to haunt the government. The new evidence of the death of 12-year-old Balachandran Prabhakaran will increase that pressure. In addition to the footage of the boy's dead body lying beside his slaughtered bodyguards, Channel 4 has obtained a series of high-resolution stills of the scene. These have been analysed by a respected forensic pathologist, Professor Derrick Pounder, to assess the cause of death. It is possible, he suggests, that the boy may have been made to watch the execution of his bound and blindfolded Tamil men before the gun was turned on him.

This is nothing compared to what Singhalese have been doing to Tamils, they are capable of worst crimes than this, they are masters of such heinous crimes.

Now all these sinhala chauvinistic will go back to the 80s and will cry relating a few incidents. The Tamils in the island are systematically discriminated by these sinhala governments from 1956 to date. More than 150 000 innocent ethnic Tamils were massacred by sinhalese to date and many were chased from their home lands. For example more than 7000 Tamils were massacred by barbaric sinhalese in the 3rd week of July 1983. refer Black July. Now sinhala goons will shout that I am a tiger supporter. Whoever speak the truth is a terrorist supporter according to these sinhala barbaric goons

Sinhalese Man March 10, 2012 7:51 pm (Pacific time)

Yes, we have to tread warily. We had to get rid of Prabhakaran, but we could also honour him as Elara was honoured - that would have been sensible. Certainly, Prabha was a monster, but it is still the egg and chicken conundrum. We must have reconcilliation; unfortunately there must also be accountability - however uncomfortable that may be. The people who did these things may have been driven insane by propaganda, then identify them and put them in an asylum where they can't do such things again. But, please, Tamils; you are partly driven by self-interest, so allow us also to comment annonymously, so that we may survive to ensure that we and you live again as brothers Lastly, I know that claiming personal goodwill is not enough: legislation and a political solution ARE necessary. On your part, please be realistic: I am willing to discuss "separatism" rationally, but that very word will cause a backlash. Also, I respect what people with a conscience say, but remeber that what drives the majority community mad is staements from what is labelled "the Capitalist West."

With hate mongers like Rush Limbaugh out there promoting hatred against women and a Congress that is even willing to discuss what woemen should do with their own bodies, American women should beware of their safety as the economy keeps slipping and insanity becomes more and more "nomral".

"sick and twisted to suggest that such a proud resistance movement would kill its own"

um, what do you call suicide bombers -- women blowing themselves up in public? Is that the Sri Lankan army too?

Tim King: I don't know, I guess they got the message back in '83 that civilians had to be killed, what do you think?  Just remember the basics, all religious governments are all inherently  guilty of human rights violations, you can't force people to abandon a language, religion or culture.  And yes, obviously the Sri Lanka Army blew innocent women and children up, it isn't even up for discussion, because it happened in the Vanni does not make it less significant than it had happened in Colombo.

How much the LTTE paid for this licking.

Editor: Oh please, you think you can come along and act like this wasn't well-established, pardon me, you truly are an idiot.  The bodies are loaded by uniformed SLA soldiers into a truck on video, and Shoba is LTTE, you are sick and twisted to suggest that such a proud resistance movement would kill its own, they were killed by the SLA and there is no question.  Any possible defence you might offer for this is long gone history now, stop defending war criminals!  Here is the part you gravely misunderstand with your accusations of LTTE payments; they would never even offer such a thing, you're so used to paying for any good press you have, you can't imagine how humanitarians even operate.  We care because of the Genocide, we didn't select the players or their religions, their actions... none of it.  We are not paid by the LTTE, I am going to stop approving comments that suggest this foolishness.
