A good letter about stopping the unjust US & UN threats against Sri Lanka :: Petition for the White House

2/27 Update:

Petition for the White House re: not bringing counter-productive war crimes charges at this point in time - https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/safeguard-sovereignty-sri-lanka-and-not-pass-resolution-against-sri-lanka-alleged-war-crimes/VvwB6LgR

Sri Lanka needs more time to recover from a brutal 29 year long civil war. While the Sri Lankan government has done a lot for peace & reconciliation since the war ended 5 years ago, and there is a lot more to do, calls for war crimes charges by the UN & US at this point will help no one. Check it out & sign the petition if you agree.

From the letter:

"This is a witch hunt against my people who have suffered enough with terrorism for nearly 29 years that we who live in the US do not understand.  The threat of a third resolution against Sri Lanka due to impatience, with unreal expectations of what you believe should have been accomplished in a short period of 5 years, fails to credit the work completed and currently in progress.   Demanding more that is humanly impossible in 4 years following a 29 year war of destruction is counterproductive to moving forward with the momentum gained so far."

And:

"The threat of economic and political sanctions is viewed by individuals and other nations as a death sentence to deprive civilians as we have seen happen in other countries with US imposed sanctions.  This is no way to protect human rights by taking away rights of other nations and its people."

And:


"To add insult to injury at the upcoming UNHRC, human rights are being discussed with the harshest criticism against Sri Lanka and North Korea.  Do you really believe that Sri Lanka can be placed on level with North Korea?  Sri Lanka eliminated the terror group declared by the FBI as the most brutal among the top three in the world.  A study by Canada’s Mackenzie Institute on terrorism, speaks volumes about the LTTE brand of terrorism.
I wish to respectfully remind the Senators and everyone in the Obama administration that the suicide bombs that killed thousands of US and NATO security forces were the invention of the Sri Lanka LTTE.  They continue to be used against US Security forces.  The FBI has credited the LTTE with more than that if directly quoted from the FBI website. 
Sri Lanka rehabilitated over 12,000 combatants.  They did not face a firing squad on surrender.  Isn’t that humanitarian consideration shown by the Sri Lanka authorities?"
