Now you are getting desperate to twist and turn!
I am neither twisting or turning. I have answered all your point. Maybe it?s not the answer you wish to hear. But there you go
The point is already made for you , dont pretend not to understand!
I am sorry, but you have made no worthwhile point. As I have just said, your point is na´ve, simplistic, flawed, one sided etc.
Who commited the civilian murders during for example 83 riots? arent you going to call them ordinary sinhala folks!
You asked me the specific point about the welikada massacre. I answered that point
Now you are asking me a different question. I will address that.
The civillian murders (specifically the tamils that were murdered) were committed by a section of the sinhalese population who they lived among.
My point is
1. This was not the majority of the sinhalese
2. There a lot of sinhalese who are alive today, who were just kids or not even born in that time
3. The politicians who were leading the country at the time are mostly dead
As such, I and a whole heap of sinhalese, refuse to be held responsible for this genocide or massacre or whatever you wish to call it. It is not something to be forgotten or swept under the carpet. But a lesson to be learnt and for us and the next generations to move on and ensure it is never repeated. So far, I think despite numerous provocations by the LTTE, has any significant section of the Sinhalese civillian majority resorted to sinking so low again. I would say that is a positive.
Well prisoners who carried out the kilings were aided and abated by the gurads!! Who are ordinary sinhala folks too!
Sure they were. So what?s your point. These guards are probably dead, retired or whatever. Do you wish to condemn a whole race of people based on their actions
If these guys were guilty they should have been punished that never happens in SL!!
True. Likewise I would like to see the LTTE punished along with VP for all their crimes. Do you agree?
When Germany commited crimes against Jews they were bombed! are you saying that should happen in SL?
Er... what exactly have the LTTE been doing in the south. Distributing daisies? Do you think they were right and are still right to do what they are doing targeting innocent civillians?
