It is time to 'Impeach' Ban Ki Moon for destroying UN
There is no mandate for United Nations to involve in Sri Lanka at the moment unless Sri Lankan government request that. As Sri Lanka's economic development Minister Basil Rajapaksha correctly said 'what Sri Lanka now need is partners not monitors'.
UNITED STATES and some countries of the European Union in collaboration with Secretary General's office are trying to find new ways to interfere the sovereignty of member nations. This time UNSG Ban Ki moon is directly acting as a puppet of some western Nations; further more he and his backers are demanding the Sri Lankan government to violate the freedom of expression of Sri Lankans by banning protests against Ban Ki Moon. A protest which started by Wimal Weerawansa a Sri Lankan patriot few days ago is a peaceful "Satyagraha" against Ban Ki Moon for appointing a panel of three to advise him on alleged war crimes in Sri Lanka.
 
But some pro western political pundits claim, that these type of issues have to be resolved diplomatically. Yes, but the question is did Mr. Ban Ki Moon has left any room for diplomacy. Sri Lanka's top diplomat at UN Dr. Kohana who happened to be the former chief protocol officer of United Nations claims that Ban Ki Moon is trying to create a "precedent" to create an alternate way to interfere sovereignty of member nations. Dr. Kohana who is an authority on UN laws is in the view that Ban Ki Moon is acting unlawfully, what other evidence we need that the doors are closed for diplomacy.
 
At UN, if Security Council, General Assembly or Human Rights Council rejects to issue any order against a member nation on an issue, there was no other way of influencing a member nation other than diplomacy. Those actions would only be taken after trying out local solutions. This check and balance system helped United Nations to function without any effective division within the organization. Even though, from time to time there were different camps at UN body, VETO power at the main bodies did the balancing act but Ban Ki Moon's new advisory panel method on the other hand will override all these bodies and check and balance system. If Ban Ki Moon really wanted to fix the troubles in the world, there are enough conflicts which needs his immediate attention.
 
Sri Lanka is a peaceful country now; there are no more killings, suicide bombers, or shelling. Sri Lankans throughout the country again and again with highest majorities approved the methods used by present Rajapaksha Government to stop the Tamil Tigers killing craze. The Government itself has taken steps to reconcile communities. A political solution is in the process with the involvement of all parties. Infrastructures are rebuilding. "Lessons Learned and Reconciliation", commission is in progress. There is no mandate for United Nations to involve in Sri Lanka at the moment unless Sri Lankan government requests that. As Sri Lanka's economic development Minister Basil Rajapaksha correctly said, "what Sri Lanka now need is partners not monitors".
 
If Ban Ki Moon's action would be successful, it will create a new method for powerful nations to interfere into local matters of small nations, under the cover of United Nations name board. If such things happened, its actions will only be accountable to the Secretary General who presently is acting as a puppet of western countries and eventually will jeopardise the function of United Nations, where equality for every nation is the motto. Even though a small nation, Sri Lanka has done its part to protect United Nations; by refusing to issue visas to three member panel appointed by UN Secretary General to advise him on Sri Lanka's already ended conflict.
 
So far Russia and China placed their protests; None Aligned Movement is considering protesting. It is time for other member nations to pitch in, not only for Sri Lanka but also for the future protection and sovereignty of their own nations. Also it is time for the world body to consider impeaching Ban Ki Moon for violating UN rules and trying to destroy United Nations.
