Of those propaganda hit men

    Very well written. This kind of exposure is the best weapon to counteract propaganda hits.

    Frankly, the journalism is dead.

    When did these countries ever bother about humanity UK US & some others have been solely responsible for creating humanitarian disasters around the world with one pretext or another, what about Nagasaki & Hiroshima, Iraq etc: America has been responsible in creating mayhem & destruction in many countries all of them poor third world countries by toppling elected Governments with its covert operations just because America did not like its leaders or to grab some resources that country possessed. Usually they demonise a country to the hilt to garner enough support to take military action against that country or occupy it or both. Iraq is a good example.

    These are the same people who are trying to demonise and tarnish Sri Lanka, they are up to no good, wonder what their real agenda is? Ernt these the same people who are fighting a so called global war on terror to wipe out terrorism globally? So why are they hellbent on supporting a proscribed terrorist Org. in Sri Lanka?

    [what about Nagasaki & Hiroshima]

    It ended the second world war. Had only the US possessed nuclear weapons today, there shall be no talks of disarmament. Since many countries have acquired their own nuclear capabilities today, now there are seemingly independent bodies protesting against nuclear weapons. UN has non-proliferation treaty. Same goes for the slavery, child labour etc.

    It ended the second world war.

    So it is ok for US to end a war by deliberately murdering civilians at a time of war, so whats new its happening right now in Afghanistan & Iraq, and there is no one screaming blue murder against the US.

    Excellent Article, We need these type journalism to prevail to counter attack the bogus International media who are like a bunch of possessed, evil and uncivilized Morons. They do not want to have even a breather, their main undivided main is to save the remaining terrorists. I just cannot understand their biased stand. Why are these so called West and the Americans so interested in a small third world country like ours? We do not have oil, we do not have money so then what? Do they have any other vested interest?. Are these individuals being paid by the Terrorists? I do have a very strong feeling now. HRW are the worst culprits, they are like fallen hero`s, never talk the truth, never talk about Israel, never talk about American atrocities, they are like a bunch of idiots. Nobody give a damn about what they say. It is always the opposite. They are not second to that lanky Miliband and Koucher. Their attitude and the behavior at UN was most unpleasant, what can we expect from a Westerner? Do they feel humiliated from their Srilankan visit, they came like tigers, the MASTERS and went away with their tails cut off. Alas they were treated shabbily and kicked out of Sri Lanka. What Morons. Their propaganda will not cease, it will continue unabated. Hence the Srilalnkan media has to back with a counter attack, in the foreign press.

    The reason behind US & those EU countries on our issue is loud & clear. They want countries like ours (eg. Sri Lanka, Thailand)to be unstable & poor.

    As long as a country is unstable & poor, the US & the west can achieve their hidden goals through undercover NGOs, biased media & puppet politicians.

    [So it is ok for US to end a war by deliberately murdering civilians at a time of war]

    What is OK and not OK changes with time. That is my point. The real problem here is, the parties who have authority to set standards simply do it on their own convenience. We all have to follow suite.

    There is a Sinhala saying `Kanna Ona Unama Kabara Goyath Tala Goya Wenawa`. This is how the world works these days.

    The conduct of these so called independent media is nothing short of propaganda for the respective governments. Yesterday, I was listing to BBC or CNN report from China`s Sichzuwan province on the anniversary of earthquake.

    The report is mostly about the deaths in schools, above all good things that have happened after that. Reporter first complains with the suitable tone that the Chinese government has ruled that there is no problems with buildings (Obviously he does not trust the Chinese government).

    The reporter laments, that there hasn`t been any rebuilding at the school site, not even a memorial (He expects memorials to be build at every corner, but conviniently forgets to mention that there was a ceremony near a memorial which he himself has filmed).

    Then he goes on to claim that all the evidence that would support a case against the building has been wiped out. (This is reinforcing the suspicion about the government). Who told him that? When did that happen? No mention.
