    There is nothing on words. Important matter is solution.

    This is ambassador`s full speech:

    Actually it`s time for MR to come up with a political solution to the problem. While taming LTTE, we also should push for a just solution so that SL can be a peaceful place to live for everybody.

    Sinhalese needs to understand that there are minorities also live in SL at the same time minorities should understand that Sinhalese are the mojority so most of the people who lead the government and other institutions will be from the majority. Hope the solution for all the trouble in SL will be found soon.

    How this same theory is applied to the UNITED STATES. In the united STATES, blacks got CIVIL RIGHTS only about 50 years ago.

    BUt, IN Sri Lanka, Tamils were the dominant ethnic group about 50 years ago.

    Only problem was, when this guy was talking there was no one in the audience to ask him questions.

    Because EASTERN HOSPITALITY does not work when westerners are talking. We need to understand both who we are and whom are dealing with.

    Not the words, not the solution, important matter is the PROBLEM. Solutions to hypothetical problems are hypothetical. Hypothetical solutions to hypothetical problems can only be implemented in hypothetical situations.

    That is a hypothesis that needs testing.

    [ There is nothing on words. Important matter is solution. ]

    If ISrael worked the way BRITISH told them 50 years ago, ISRAEL would be very different.

    IF USA works the way, they say we should work, USA should have never INVADED AFGHANISTAN OR IRAQ. Instead, USA IS still killing in AFGHANISTAN and they are converting IRAQ completely to a BANANA REPUBLIC which works according to USA instructions.

    Tamils can have their rights after 50 years :-)

    what rights you are talking about here ?

    AnuD,

    We`ve the problem not US. What he says is correct. We need to promote a solution while fighting LTTE. If that doesn`t happen soon, only LTTE will benefit and somebody will intervene to rescue them. We are not the most powerful country in the world so we`ve to be smart. That`s all.

    [what rights you are talking about here ?]

    What ever the rights they think, that they may not have. It doesn`t necessrily the ones deprived by GOSL but also by LTTE.

    [We need to promote a solution while fighting LTTE.]

    this is what I always say.. and I heard it..
