Letting the cat out of the bag

    Sripathi should NOT have made that comment about the advances the forces have made. NO QUESTION about that.

    After all every member of the Security force is risking their lives and many are getting killed.

    However, it is in his right to expose the corruption that is taking place with in the government and cheap political publicity MR and his cronies are trying to take from this war.

    MR has FAILED miserably in every area of governnance fromt he economy to the COL to the peace process. The war is the only thing that is left for him. So he is trying to take MAXIMUM advantage of it fooling the Idiots (which is he very good at).

    What should be exposed is how MR is trying to take CHEAP publicity out of this war over the dead bodies of soldiers. He is trying to make it look like he is a hero who saved the EAst fromt he LTTE where as the truth is far from this.

    The LTTE was extremely weak from day 1. TWO reasons for this.

    1. Beacause of the CFA the LTTE has lost most of its international support (funding, arms shippin etc).

    2. The Key to east was Karuna and his eastern command. When Karuna broke away the LTTE effective lost the east. THere was NOTHING much left of the LTTE.

    THe military has had it very easy in the east. THis has NOTHING to do with Rajapassa and his cronies, althoght he tries to take maximum political advantage of this.

    MR WHOLE POLITICAL career is built on Fooling the Village IDIOTS. He is a FRAUD. For example he made a HUGE carnival about how he sent his son to the Navy. The very next week packed off the poodle to Darthmont, breaking all naval tradition and denying a more capable officer of the chance.

    THis is `Modayata Magic`!!

    In 1994 under president DB Wijetunga, General Lucky Algama was able to clear the East even with Karuna at his FULL strength. That was TRUE victory.

    WHile commending the Military for the great job their doing in the east, MR and his hooligan brothers should be HOOTED at for the fraund that is taking place. I also laugh at those MRs PUNNAKKU eating HOOTERS who think that MR is was won the war, cos little do they know.

    THe LTTE is a dead force in the East thanks to the CFA and the Karuna Break away. The REAL war will be faught in the North. It going to be A million times harder than what took place in the east. An example of how hard is the fact that the Army lost over 300 soldiers in one day in Mahumalai (i might have spelt that wrong).

    As far as I know, Rahula College is a well reputed school in down south. What it had to do with Ex-president Kumaratunge administration, as pointed out here?

    It is very unfortunate that Sri Lankans elect such IDIOTS as lawmakers.The Sinhalayas are a tribe that can be fooled all the time!When such leaders are elected do we need any enemies ?

    Why all these try to drag MR and his Brothers for there problems.If they have differences or grievance must sort them or find another place.

    War,Economy, human rights all best in Asia.

    There was indeed no cat to let out other than some retained foul gas

    Sripathy has acted like a cheap lawyer who is unable to read between lines.

    This is `sour grapes`.

    It is not important whether Basil or Gota are in possession of green card or PR in another country. What is important is to analyse what they do is in the national interest. It is clear MR and his brothers have flared up this war to make money. The country (or people) is no safer than two years ago. They say they fight for the country. Who are they fighting. LTTe clearly agreed to a political settlement to the conflict when they signed CFA. The CFA weakened them considerably, that is why they helped MR to win. Thus they reversed the international marginalisation. If one wonders, why LTTe did not put up a fight it is because they did not build their arsanal during CFA.

    Secondly, it is true that the fight in the east has been very easy for the forces as the LTTe withdrew quickly leaving behind whatever they had. It had happend before.

    The question one should ask is who allowed LTTe to come back to the East which was free of LTTe during Wijetunga time. IT was the wrong strategy adopted by Chandrika goverment. So if Chandrika pointed out in 2005 that LTTe was in the east, she was responsible for that.

    Thirdly, why this war? when we had a very good time during 2002-04 during the CFA. We even visited JAFFna and had toddy to drink. No body harmed us. War was brought by MR, JVP and JHU. So this war is unjustified and senseless.

    If LTTE built up arms or camps, they will not run away so quickly.

    Now going back to para one, it is not important whether Basil and Gota have Green Card, but they are wasting a lot of money which the country does not have. They are having civilians killed. They are causing a lot harrasment to ordinary people who live from hand to mouth.

    [1. Beacause of the CFA the LTTE has lost most of its international support (funding, arms shippin etc). ]

    What a lie. LTTE lost international support not because of stupid CFA but because of Al Quida attacks against western targets (WTC bombing, Madrid Bombing, London Bombing etc) which made world opinion against Terrorism. UN resolution 1373 against terrorism became possible not because of CFA but because of AlQuida activities against Westerners. CFA which provided diplomatic status to bloody terrorism in fact gave LTTE a lifeline.

    [2. The Key to east was Karuna and his eastern command. When Karuna broke away the LTTE effective lost the east. THere was NOTHING much left of the LTTE]

    There is some truth. But again it is stupid to say Karuna is the reason for military victories in the East.
