Roads paved with GOLD

    Hitler also celebrated the Olympic games while killing innocent Jewish children in Concentration camps, the same as Sri Lanka`s butcher Mahinda Modabakse is celebrating the South Asian games while bombing the innocent Tamil children in the North - East. The similarities are amazing eh!

    Ha ha ha, South Asian game eh! Don`t worry none of the Sri Lankans will be even qualified to participate in the Olympics. Don`t forget these gold medals are soaked in the blood of innocent Tamil children who were massacred by the president of Sri Lanka. The Sinhalese are enjoying the games in Colombo while killing the brave, talented Tamil children in the North and East.

    Shame! Shame! Shame!!

    Anagarika,

    I do not think anyone is fed up reading any news on LTTE or GoSL or the conflict, But i do agree it is a different thread and it is nice to have once in a way!!

    I do not however think this thread will be popular like the others unless someone changes its course and place some other news items again related to the WAR!!

    Let us watch and see

    These are South Asian Games and winning 30 Gold is not a major issue..we should know the sentence for the Major who broke the athlete legs with 6 other men.

    Let us know how is that investigation is going? I am sure the guy who got hurt will withdraw his case as I am sure the Major will use his govt influence!!

    Well, we should sponsor all these winners to the fullest extent before sendind them to the next Olympics in Beijing. Those are the medals that count.

    BiCubic,

    For them to go to the Olympics in Beijing in 2008, they need to do much better..Look at Susanthika timing in 100 mtrs..she won`t finish in top 100 if you look at the timings in U.S or other countries (other than South Asians)

    It is a long way to go...better to be proud of these golds..

    [These are South Asian Games and winning 30 Gold is not a major issue..we should know the sentence for the Major who broke the athlete legs with 6 other men.]

    eh? you say 30 gold medals for a country like sri lanka (with its relatively much less population), in a competition with countries like India, Pakistan, Bangladesh is NO BIG DEAL!???

    (FYI, Pakistan is finding it real hard to oust Sri Lanka from the 2nd place in the medals tally, and Bangladesh is nowhere close... and we have won under quite a few `unexpected` events, like javelin, discus throw, high jump, etc.)

    well... naturalized abroad and sharing nothing in common with a Sri Lankan in feelings, national or otherwise... i don`t expect you to feel like you do.

    [berty, the Sri Lankan in you have long died, and the eelamist in you will meet a prenatal death.]

    in short, you belong nowhere! and, i am sorry for you about that. :-(

    as a side note, you have to be in sri lanka (may be you can get an update from a relative of yours in Sri Lanka), in order to feel the sense of nationalistic pride that is shared by each and every Sri Lankan - be it Tamil/Muslim/Sinhalese, bus conductor, office executive, auto mechanic, student, housewife...

    THE FEELING IS SIMPLY ECSTASIC! :-)

    Berty, galmans, and the like are trying their level best to bring down the nationalistic feeling/pride of the common Sri Lankan, boosted by the SAG wins...

    i wonder...

    1) what these `brothers-on-fire` gain by it?

    2) how many common Sri Lankans are reading their worthless posts on the internet?

    3) whether the few of us, who read their posts, are really so weak as to feel down and out after doing so?

    i understand... when you have a terrorist movement that`s losing its motion (and entering `loose-motion phase`) bigtime, and you have sponsored it bigtime, you would say SIMPLY ANYTHING to pacify your own pathetic selves...

    i petty you `brothers-on-fire`...

    be peace on you.

    [AGMP, well said...however, not all expats feel as Berty...see my post earlier.]

    yeah, i know... i didn`t include those Sri Lankan expats in my statement.

    there are even a few tamil expat freinds of mine - with one of whom i am even working together on an off-shore software venture - who are really taken up by the SAG wins by Sri Lanka - for me, they are as good as my own brothers!

    :-)
