american 'heroism'!

note - as i have said before, i fully approve killing of mass murderer osama bin laden. but this is not about that.

we were told, that after an elaborate decision making process; under the supervision of barack obama; excellent specimens of america's professional military and intelligence, secretly entered pakistan armed with latest military hardware and best intelligence; attacked a security compound/luxury mansion of osama bin laden; heroically fought and killed 2 of his guards; killed ak-47 wielding osama, who used his wife as a human shield; avoided another 'black hawks down' by destroying their own shot at helicopter, and got back to safety with body and computer hard drives etc..

how 'heroic', 'professional' and even 'civilized'!
george washington would be proud!

hmmm... wonder what old george would say to reality that is emerging through the hypocrisy and lies.

it seems that obambi ordered a group of testosterone injected american thugs, known as navy seals, armed with the overwhelming firepower and armor, to follow a few sneaky cia spies. these then, invaded pakistan (definitely committing a war crime in the process); entered an unguarded dirty house with lots of cows and goats; killed 2 unarmed men and a woman (or 3 unarmed men); shot another woman who was not a human shield in leg; traumatized some very young children; executed osama after he surrendered; panicked when yet another shoddy specimen of american industry, a helicopter broke down without anyone even kicking it; crowded into other helicopter in fear and ran away without taking surviving osama family as planned.

you may follow the emerged lies in these links - 1 , 2, 3. more keep coming.

these sort of lies to bolster, non existent professionalism and heroism, and hide, very real cowardice and brutality, of western military forces are nothing new. among many more, we had the jessica lynch incident during invasion of iraq, and we had numerous cases of westerners killing every non westerner on sight whenever they heard a bomb go off or shot fired in iraq, bombing on alleged targets in civilian neighborhoods from 35,000 ft in the air in afghanistan, serbia and now libya, etc..

in contrast, we, sri lankans, were told by the same west that we were not only unheroic but criminal to fight and defeat (even with our minimal resources) against a well armed (through funds collected in west ) tamil tiger murderers and suicide bombers led by big pussy velupillai prabhakaran. west wanted us to appease the tigers and submit to daily killing and maiming of our children. (you see, we are subhumans; we unlike west after 9/11 don't need to resist monthly equivalents in colombo and elsewhere.) even now we are told, by westerns tools (like united nations, amnesty international , human rights watch , etc, who are yet to seriously criticize or investigate western military actions) that alleged deaths, among very real human shields used by tamil tigers, from accidents, and even of tiger leaders, amount to war crimes on our part. our concerns are never addressed and we are denied just and equal treatment.

robert o. blake, assistant secretary of state of usa for south and central asian affairs, was shamelessly spouting this rubbish yesterday in colombo.
hypocrisy much?

we should resist these unjust attempts at rewriting history to west's benefit and our detriment, by sticking to and exposing facts, relentlessly.

what i find most contemptible and despicable is the attitude of certain sri lankans who unquestioningly believe these lies from west. some of this foolish credulity may be due to the fact that they and their families depend on western funded ngos. but i think some of them were bred into such servility through several generations of willing slavery.

in the sri lankan blogosphere, this kind of thing is observable among others in indi samarajiva ( and padashow.wordpress) and sanjana hattotuwa (groundviews, moju, etc..) and their suckerboys. both want sri lanka to submit to western tools' 'judgment' and fail to even address or recognize the blatant injustice and inequality involved.

they happily welcome west's attempts at resource grabs (as in libya). if they blame west, it is always in past tense. so bush gets lot of abuse, but obama is good even though he is doing exactly what bush did with lot more hypocrisy. indi is on record, saying that west is 'more civilized' and has our best interest in mind, and seriously regretting that sri lanka does not have a 'barackian' administration, etc.. in fact i can fill several posts with on record ass licking of these two alone (i might some day).

iow, their willing servility and credulity, induced by cupidity, lead them to live in a fantasy world, where west is heroic and morally superior.

let us continue to expose and laugh at them, though they will continue to censor (while hypocritically preaching freedom of expression) any attempts to point out, their and their western masters', errors and lies, in their blogs.

Well done they are no different to us. I think they are better liars than us though.

Human rights abuse is endemic mainly when the stronger beat the weaker wherever it occurs.

Its called revenge

NAVI Pillay SPEAKS! NEW YORK: The United Nations' top human rights official called on the United States Tuesday to give the U.N. details about Osama bin Laden's killing and said that all counter-terrorism operations must respect international law.

But Navi Pillay, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said that the al Qaeda leader, killed in a U.S. operation in Pakistan, had committed crimes against humanity as self-confessed mastermind of "the most appalling acts of terrorism," including the September 11, 2001 attacks on America.

It was always clear that taking bin Laden alive was likely to be difficult, she said, noting that U.S. authorities had stated that they intended to arrest him if possible.

"This was a complex operation and it would be helpful if we knew the precise facts surrounding his killing. The United Nations has consistently emphasized that all counter-terrorism acts must respect international law," Pillay said in a statement issued in response to a Reuters request.

In Washington, U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder defended as lawful Tuesday the U.S. operation to go into Pakistan that resulted in the death of bin Laden and the taking of his body.

"If he was captured and brought before a court, I have no doubt he would have been charged with the most serious crimes, including the mass murder of civilians that took place on 9/11, which were planned and systematic and in my view amounted to crime against humanity," said Pillay, a former U.N. war crimes judge.

comparisons of u.n. statements after deaths of osama and prabhakaran clearly indicate servile bias of the whole institution and its officers .

There is a problem with international law when it comes to eliminating terrorists. When these laws were drafted they did not envisage a world of hostage taking and revenge. If Praba or Bin Laden were taken alive then I believe we would have had subsequent loss of innocent lives. While I cannot condone killing in cold blood, I cannot shed a tear when their direct actions killed so many thousands.

Its always instructive comparing the reaction from western NGOs to Obama's hit.

For instance, Navi Pillay's minions are hilarious in their cringing servility.

“We are just saying the U.S. government should answer questions concerning whether a meaningful prospect of surrender and arrest..
