US Army raped a large number of women during Vietnam war, says Sri Lankan Minister


(October 07, Colombo - Lanka Polity) Udaya Prabath Gammanpila, a federal Minister of Sri Lanka government, accused that the US Army raped a large number of women during Vietnam war. He recalled that rape took place right inside the White House as Bill Clinton, the husband of US State Secretary Hilary Clinton was the President.

Western Provincial Council Minister Udaya Prabath Gammanpila made these comments to state-owned Dinamina Sinhala daily participating a petition campaign against US in Colombo. His party, National Heritage Party (JHU), a coalition member of the Sri Lanka government, is collecting a million of signatures for a petition to be handed over to the UN General Secretary denying a recent statement of US State Secretary Hilary Clinton.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, addressing the UN Security Council, on September 30, noted that rape has been used as a weapon of war in the Balkans, Burma, Sri Lanka and elsewhere and that in too many countries and in too many cases, the perpetrators of this violence are not punished, and so this impunity encourages further attacks.

Sri Lanka government member of parliament, Athuraliye Rathana Thero, a member of the JHU, said that Sri Lanka is considering Clinton's statement as government policy and not as one made in her individual capacity.

U.S. officials called for a possible war crimes investigation for the last leg of the government's military operation to crush the decades long fight of the minority Tamils for an independent state in the northern and eastern parts of the island.

  1. Hillary should watch the Crime and Discovery Channels, more often. There are more rapes taking place in modern US and other western countries. It doesn’t stop there what about the cult figures and the fathers that practice incest. However, in saying that, its best that government ministers dont make public comments against the US - we still need them to come and invest in our country and we still need the western Mulah

  2. Hillary's mouth is not that good. That is the reason her husband never satisfied. She does not know how to use her mouth.

  4. You would only make counter-accusations if you know you are guilty yourself. The powers-that-be that cry out loud cannot see this simple truth that the world can see. Secondly, Miniter Gommanpila is a moron to suggest it was rape that took place in the White House. It was consensual sex between two adults, but why should it matter anyway? How could it ever be a defence for the accusations levelled against the SL army? The people who take up that ridiculous line of attack are idiots.

  5. The argument by the SL government that, someone else did it so they have no right to criticise us is just a smoke screen. It doesn't matter how many governments did it before SL. The fact is that it was wrong and SL should not have done it.

  7. What Mr Gammanoila has said is true. But we must not make an argument on the basis that they did it and it is ok for us to do. We must get het to withdraw the false accusation made on one of the most deciplined armies in the world. From history, rape has been a part of overpowering militaraly, but may be for the first time in history,an army stayed away from such inhuman treatment to innocent women and also to women terrorists. We must demand an apology from Mrs Clinton.

  8. LTTE have been using women as suicide bombers from the inception of the concept. Indian Prime minister Rajiev Gandhi’s assignation by a female suicide bomber is a prime example of this doctrine. There is even documented evidence of usage of PREGNANT women for this ghastly act. There is also evidence captured on film of LTTE hacking mothers with babies in arms. If Mrs Hilary Clinton’s mission is to bring to justice the ‘perpetrators of crimes against women’ in Sri Lanka, then she had documented proof whom to go for. Also, if she had turned to all that all American intelligence agency, the CIA, they could have confirmed that some of the Tamil Diaspora in the USA is party to funding this grisly act. They even could have confirmed that these fundraisers, also fund election campaigns of non other than Mrs Clinton’s – do we see a conflict of interest!

    So, the question has to be asked, has Mrs Clinton got blood on her hands and is she really the person to who should represent the welfare of women? WAKE-UP UN!
