British press gives May 29 date for EU ban

  • 20 May 2006 21:52:26 GMT

    I said it here before. As long as the international community tries to find a solution for Sri Lanka I am happy with whatever they do.

    I hope the EU and the IC also start taking action instead of symbol politics. Banning the Tigers is just symbol politics (is not like the Tigers are collecting money with television commercials is it?). The real action should be to put more Europeans in Sri Lanka to really monitor what`s going on.

    The media in Sri Lanka is biased. They are too much Tiger or too much Government. And I can`t blame them either because if they operate in a Tiger area you must be pretty stupid when you don`t write things in favour for the Tigers. Likewise in south it`s the same. Journalists don`t want to get killed by bringing unbiased news.

    So I ask the IC and EU kindly to place more (protected) news reporters in troubled area so we can REALLY know what`s happening. Then we can REALLY decide what we should know. Right now it is our feeling that is speaking, and more often than not this feeling which spread hate and anger is created by the propaganda of the leadership.

    Has anyone read `The genetic affinities of sri lankan populations` by GK Kshatryia

    Every decision taken against LTTE and Tamils by EU or United States just to please and satisfy the Sri lankan government will certainly incite each and every tamil living all over the world to contribute more and more moral and material supports to LTTE to fight agains the Sri Lankan government in the south. That means , the whole economic of Sri Lanka will be used for the importation of military equipments. There won`t be any tourists, Hotels will be once again closed definitely.

    The more the sri Lankan governments persist and beg western countries to take action against LTTE ther will be more and more war all over the Sri lanka.

    Unless sri Lanka accept the advice of Indian government to follow the indian model of federal systems ,( for northeast and northwest ) ethnic war will be continued .

    It would be in the interests of the US and UK to restart the war in Sri Lanka. War in Sri Lanka means more money in the coffers of US, UK and Russia, either directly or indirectly.

    Has anyone every thought about where both the LTTE and the GOSL get their weapons from. Don`t be surprised if the supplier is the one and the same. The fools kill and die to make the rich even richer.

    You know what, EU didn`t took this decision just because the EU monitors were attacked.

    They waited long 3 years since the CFA to come to this conclusion. The incident at high seas was the one where they really ran out of patients with butchers. Then came the US special envoy to deliver the final blow to all ltte`s dreams. Infact US embassador to SL promised us that the US will make it really hard for LTTE to wage war in the future. I am really appreciated the US embassadors words in January..I thought something might come out of it. IT REALLY CAME IN THE END.

    That shows the decision was an outcome of a long process. Read the resolution on Sri Lanka by EU.

    According to that EU DOES NOT consider LTTE to be the

    SOLE REPRESENTATIVE of tamil people.

    That is the bit I really like in that long resolution. Boy it took me a while to digest the whole list. Still go there to double check it.

    So jump hard nothing will change for the LTTE.

    Wage war, that is the only option.

    EU simply pushing the LTTE in to self distruction.

    Date for the war is set, EU and US both biased to GOSL , they did not make any bold move to find a solution .

    Bin Laden was funded and trained by USA to fight its dirty war against Russia but now and they created him, did the US punish any official that was involved in creation of Bin Laden ?

    I wish the IC and EU would do some bold move for a real peace in srilanka than for own hidden agenda .
