Why Colombo worries about an Obama Presidency?

  • 11 Jun 2008 02:26:57 GMT

    OBAMA is every terrorist`s friend. He will start a process that will end the world peace that prevailed for over 60 years.

    It will take 10-15 years to materialize.

    Nobody stops you from dreaming of de-listing, but, as history suggests, nothing will change in US policy towars any terrorism. A few more bus and train explosions in Colombo will help the de-listing course I guess. Election is a time to tell stories to who likes to believe.

    For a rag tag bunch of terrorist Tamil Tigers as they have been describe by some in Sri Lanka so to believe some commentator`s this sorry bunch has mange to infiltrate the highest levels of most powerful governments and there politicians and manage to wage a war and to let every one dance to there tune.If this is true even in a very small way what? this tell the world abut one of the most civilized, cultured educated, (as many identify them self with expanded chests and pride) Sinhalese majorities ability. Scary thought for the future of Sinhalese.

    [G.L. Peiris too, that included that there is an ethnic conflict in Sri Lanka and there should be a political solution for that conflict.

    They rallied around Chandrika and when the UNP government castigated Prabhakaran as a murderous terrorist, they compared Prabhakaran to Nelson Mandela of South Africa and Yasser Arafat of Palestine . ]

    So, then who whitewashed the LTTe for poitical gains. Foolish SLFP including CBK and MR while UNP was calling a spade a spade.

    Now, there are some scum bugs who likes to blame Ranil saying he internationalised the issue.

    It was none other than CBK/MR who whitewashed LTTE all the time.

    Sri Lanka have NO Friends in International community, this includes our giant bully India, who infected us with this somewhat seemingly incurable plague/cancer. The countries we identify as friends are the spies of our enemy.

    As Sri Lankan, we (this includes politicians of (both major)/all parties) must unite, This will not happen as Sinhalese are not used to work in democratic environment and have only worked well under feudal system. They use democratic ideals for looting the county.

    All our politicians (in last three centuries in particular) including the fathers, mothers, daughter and sons of the Nations are corrupt and have looked after their own interests only.

    Our problem now is that Government says something but opposition tells something totally different to distroy the government`s argument.... This is BAD for Sri Lanka.

    We need to devise a method by which we unitedly present the face of Sri Lanka to International Community.

    Operera You are spot on Obama is not going to change anything supporting terrorists will get him in deep hot water Piswani is just a dream these Tamil scum will soon be buried providing fertilizer for our crops. Obama is the light at the end of the tunnel we may get some respite from murder and hatred and most important for our survival climate change if not the climate will do the changing for us.

    If Obama become the president of USA, he will not change the Democratic parity`s stance on LTTE. If the LTTE band is lifted by him then he is making a big mistake as he is sending a wrong signals to other terror organizations. Obama does not know what is the real story behind the LTTE. He is saying things to get their votes to for the elections.

    He is another politico like the others, not much of a difference. USA policies are not totally decided by the president nor the Parliament or the senate, there is a super power behind all of them.

    Barack Obama is against `War on Terror`. He is against wasting 12,000 millions USD in Iraq. Obama wants to talk to the adversaries to find peaceful solutions.

    President Rajapakse came to power by making a wow to send the peace facilitators Norway home and abrogate CFA. He also abrogated P-TOMS. He is the one who rearmed paramilitaries to abduct civilians in North and East and extort ransoms. After he came to power the war was re-started with colossal damage to Tamil areas and more than 10,000 deaths of youths from both communities.

    Naturally a man of peace is seen as a threat to the Sinhala Buddhist chauvinism in Sri Lanka.

    Sen.Obama talking peace with LTTE will be the joke of the century!

    [Barack Obama is against `War on Terror`.]

    Obama is not against war on Terror, he just do not know what to do with them. He also uses war in Iraq as the theater for him to become the rock star of politics. He will face the same trap Sri Lankan presidents fell in to, trying to talk to terrorists who have different ambitions than peace building.Good luck to Obama supporters and Tamil Diaspora supporting LTTE terorists becoming bed fellows.
