UNP to review relations with LTTE?

    The genuine work done by Ranil will continue to support the Peace process. Sometimes we have to lose on the outside to win on the inside.

    I think they did not (UNP) assessed the damage they inflicted on LTTE propaganda, internationalization of the movement by exposing the LTTE. this was the main failure with UNP according to my mind. the UNF government had brought worst things to the LTTE by coming forward with peace proposals and expressing unconditional willingness to share the power.

    this was not very much clear to the south, as the shrewd way they launched it. that brought the downfall of UNP.

    Ha?. Extraordinary poll defeat????? How it should be ordinary if the LTTE filled the ballot boxes. Aren?t their any clauses in the cease-fire agreement about the elections?

    One night with Venus,

    Rest of the life with Mercury!!

    LTTE has shown again that Sun Goat is predictably unpredictable. UNP does not care about peace, it is worried only about Power. Now it will go back to its original policies.

    All parties in the south let Sun Goat do whatever he likes to do with his `subjects`. WHO CARES about them any more?

    LTTE does not deserve a fare man like Ranil at this stage so they got what they wish for. A hard liner. Mahinda may be a hard liner, he could be the end of this stupid LTTE and could be the savior of those innocent oppressed tamils in north. But, those tamils who are associated with this forum does not know it because they are alredy been brainwashed by the eelam cloud.

    It was not so necessary for LTTE to call for a total boycot of this election or keep away Tamil voters but every body can well remember how stupidly delcared

    Mr.Ranil wickremasinghe during his election campagne in Jaffna ` In front of sri Lankan army generals and soldiers at Palaly Military comples that he would modernise the sri Lankan army ( or sinhalese army ) and pur hase modern weapons `. instead of meeting tamils populations to understand their grievances under military continual occupations!!.

    So even an ordinarly Tamil citizen won`t accept to hear all these stupid words from a responsabled political leader like Mr.Ranil wickremasinghe whom Tamils have respected and helped to become as Prime Minister. But unfortuantely, during his 4 years power, he did not even remove at least 10 per cent of army camps from the residenital areas in the north but he helped his own people in the south to live peacefully and economically through the tourisme.

    Therefore, there is no fears of LTTE Tigers but there was a fear, indeed, that he would come back once again to the power to cheat the Tamils like when he was as a Prime Minister.

    We can still remember how a UNP MP declared in a public meeting ` that it was under UNP period that there were

    26 LTTE vessels were destroyed .`

    We, Tamils have good memories and not like you sinhalese leaders or people with short memories only and Tamils are well educated and they know very well, when and where a suitable punishment will be given to their enemies.

    UNP has no more rights to blame LTT for not electing Mr.Ranil as a president of sri Lanka due to their own stupid mistakes but unpardonable statements against Tamils

    When Sarath AMunugama presented his last budget in the Parliament, UNP boycotted the session. It is GOOD.

    When Ranil ran for the presidency, LTTE boycotted the election.

    It is BAD.

    Now Mahinda is going to bring in another budget. UNP will boycott that too. It will be GOOD.

    I only hope UNP leant a lesson - that never to deal with LTTE again!

  • 19 Nov 2005 14:59:59 GMT

    Let us hope that the traitor Ranil & his UNP learned a bitter lesson this time.

    The wanni sun dog & his butcher clique wanted to be double agents at this election and FAILED MISERABLY!

    Ranil who lost more than a dozen elections, wanted to grab power by hook or by crook, with the help of the tiger terrorists.

    The GODS who protect this Blessed country, (by way of several visits by the LORD BUDDHA, who advocated Universal Kindness, Compassion....) made miracles and put Mahinda in power & chased out Ranil who had secret pacts with VBT murderers...

    Even the tiger bunch must be secretly regretting for their foolish leadership`s order to the innocent Tamils not to vote.

    ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** ***** *****

    His position as the new Head of State, Mahinda will certainly bring an era of peace & prosperity to the battered country.

    To accomplish this monumental task, he requires the unconditional support of ALL sons & daughters of SRI LANKA, whether they are Sinhalese, Tamil, Muslim or other races, so long as they cherish freedom & peace...

    Terrorism must be wiped out completely as well as partitioning this tiny island.

    If talks fail, there are other means of bringing peace & stability to the country. I am a humble citizen to advice the President of the Republic!

    Even with foreigners helping to write the UNP political strategy, they -removed-ed up.

    The very first thing, UNP should fire those in the Strategy building group and never to hire them again.

    Sri Lanka, irrespective of the ethnic group, wanted PEACE, ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND BETTER LIVING CONDITIONS.

    Instead, UNP tried to fool everybody including LTTE. UNP should not have shown that they have a soft spot for LTTE. LTTE is only about a few thousand with respect to votes.

    Knowing that many did not like LTTE, UNP should have used that sentiment to gain votes. Instead UNP showed that they LTTE -friendly and at the end they contradicted themselves which backfired from both sides.

    From the begining insead of using the word `federal` they should have used `UNITARY` with some power devolution. That is where they went wrong first.

    They should have talked in a way to devide LTTE high rankers from not so hard core LTTEers and poor tamils who in the LTTE without any other alternatives.

    UNP did not think the right way. UNP should have worked in a way to appeal for people who Say that sri Lanka should be Unitary and United, Instead UNP was appealing to LTTE and to United country. Both these groups were anti-LTTE.

    Some tamils think Pabakaran is a genius. He is a looser and a failure. As long as he is hiding and talks to no one, he stays the `genius`. After some years those tamils understand how Pabakaran -removed-ed up them.

    Mahinda Rajapakse also did not hanlde things very well. So he needs to think about his work. HOw ever, CBK was controlling everything, he did not have much space to move around.
