More Tamil Tiger propaganda exposed - Genocide in Sri Lanka? Really?

Notice the camera crew?



The image below is the doctored version sent to HRW, Amnesty and other gullible individuals who can pressure Sri Lanka into a ceasefire to save the Tigers.




An IMF loan to Sri Lanka is being delayed by the US over such allegations of casualties. The Tigers have effectively convinced everyone that there is a bloodbath going on.

Remember these words?

Reuters: Q+A: Sri Lanka's propaganda war

SO DON'T THE VIDEOS AND PICTURES TELL THE WHOLE TRUTH?

Rarely, simply because only interested parties to the conflict are vouching for their authenticity. Recent images the Tigers say are from the war zone are a good example. The bloody pictures usually come from a single e-mail, said to be that of a government doctor. There is no way to prove that or even when or where the pictures were taken. The government says the doctor is doing the LTTE's bidding. The photos almost simultaneously pop up on TamilNet and other websites sympathetic to the LTTE, and are emailed to news organizations. The government also publishes photos and videos of captured weapons, dead Tiger fighters and combat, and has its own partisans out in cyberspace who forward emails and photos and try to deconstruct LTTE images. Like the LTTE material, there is no way to prove their authenticity.

a girl with a camera? that's your proof that a bloodbath isn't going on?

The above is sufficient proof that the evidence claiming civilians are dying, and the evidence claiming the Sri Lankan government is shelling the zone is fabricated.

The Tigers are surrounded and running out of ammunition. I'm not surprised they staged a photo shoot to garner international sympathy to get a 'Get out of Jail' card.

Verdict is in; Government of Sri Lanka wants Tamil civilians dead. Sending aid away while there is not enough milk powder for babies or medical supplies for the injured.. hiding behind paper work when their UK embassy and other officials were notified of the mission..

If they followed Buddhist precepts (they claim Buddhism is their official primary faith), Sri Lanka would not be in such a mess & they would be an Asian economic tiger. The kind of tiger which benefits all!

There won't be peace in Sri Lanka until they have freedom of the press, embrace the federal idea, take steps to reform their military/police Re: ethnic tolerance and allow NGO's access to all the IDP camps.

Everyone who supports Tamil rights anywhere are considered to be terrorists or backed by LTTE as far as the Lankan government is concerned.

Doctors say 'pressured' by Tigers to inflate Sri Lanka tolls

tmorgan said...

Yes, we all saw the staged interview with the Doctors. Everyone with a brain understood that CID explained the consequences of going off script.

http://tiny.cc/DPRgE
In his retirement, an unrepentant Jayawardene explained to me at his residence in Colombo in 1992 that, following a tit-for-tat killing of policemen by Tamil militants, 1983 had been about giving the Tamils a "bloody nose" to "put them in their place". He scoffed at the notion that the country's Tamils were as Sri Lankan as the Sinhalese. Jayawardene was not alone in this view then, nor is he now. It is therefore hardly surprising that many Tamils feel it is only the spectre of the Tigers and their ability to strike back that prevents further pogroms against their people.
The answer for many Tamils to the Government's failure to broker a peace has been to flee the country to either the refugee camps of southern India or, for the more fortunate, a new start in other countries. This is happening in such numbers that they are referred to as the Tamil diaspora.

Tmorgan,

That's a lie..

You want to know why?

I was living in Sri Lanka in 1983..I am a Tamil..

Why did 1983 ever happen? Because Prabhakaran (Tmail Tigers) not JR...
