Rudd morally bankrupt

In Sri Lanka, Rudd has emulated Whitlam's willful blindness to the 1975 invasion of East Timor


The callous and evil slaughter and rape of ethnic Tamils last May by the Sinhalese armed forces in Sri Lanka compares with the Indonesian mass murder of East Timorese in the Indonesian Invasion of 1975 and again in the 1991 Dili Massacre.

In September 1974, in central Java, Australia's Prime Minister Gough Whitlam told Indonesia's President Suharto that East Timor was “too small to be independent”. Thirty odd years later the Australian Government turned a blind eye to Rajapaska's Tamil genocide in Sri Lanka.

Seems Australia has quickly forgotten the lessons of Vietnam War. The late Martin Luther King is oft quoted from a sermon he delivered in 1967 on the Vietnam War "A time comes when silence is betrayal".

Tamil Tigers - hunted down and exterminated like vermin by Sinhalese President Rajapaksa

We're lucky here in Australia; the dominating colonist-derived population doesn't hunt down and slaughter its ethnic minority Aboriginals...these days at least.

Not so in Sri Lanka, where the dominant Sinhalese government lead by President Mahinda Rajapaksa since coming to power in April 2004 as then Prime Minister, has seen it his personal mandate to exterminate the Tamil Tigers from Sri Lanka, like vermin.
