    ]

    Ranil wickramsinghe is the Major liability for UNP.

    What is wrong with These Camps ?

    Are they foreign Soldiers?

    Why they can not have camps in the North ?

    If the govt gets two third, they will abuse power more.

    Excuses will be LTTE, foreign goni billos and country`s development.

    the last six years, country progressed even amidst the war. But, govt did not do anything.

    All those projects by foreign loans or aids are for commissions. Think, about so called devloped countries waiting until the foreign aids and loans come. What would have been the result ?

    Another boat load -

    [ There is no prospect of them gaining work or permanent residency visas which they say they want in their country of destination. Indeed our only concern is a humanitarian one that boat won t get them here alive given the distance and the high seas between Timor and New Zealand. Mr Goff said.

    Under the Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) Convention a vessel can be and should be prevented from departing that is not in accordance with safety standards and we would be urging the East Timorese and United Nations authorities to act consistently with that convention, said Mr Goff.

    If they got to New Zealand, they would basically be treated the same as people who arrive here illegally by plane. They would be turned around or sent back. We have to act consistently with the UN Convention on refugees but there is no evidence to suggest that these people are in fact genuine refugees. They are not persons part of a persecuted minority group.

    Our strongest advice to them is not to jeopardise their lives by attempting to make a sea voyage that they would not survive.]

    This is all because of the policies of the developed countries.

    Donors gave aids and loans and only thing they wanted was their businesses to flourish.

    Aids and loans receiving countries did not do anything, everywhere Asia, Africa, Haiti, billions of dollars given have vanished. All those money came to developed countries as bank accounts to leaders of developing countries.

    Now people of those countries sacrifice thier lives looking for greener pastures.

    So, they want to stop it at the pont of departure.

    [Cache of weapons discovered as cops execute search warrant

    Durham police are remaining tight-lipped about an ongoing investigation that led them to a Toronto storage facility where they found a cache of weapons and explosive materials that had to be detonated Wednesday night.

    `We were executing a warrant as part of an ongoing investigation, which takes us to a storage facility on Progress (Avenue),` police spokesman Dave Selby said.

    But, because the investigation is not over, he could not elaborate on what police are looking into.

    On finding the explosives, `the primary focus turns to, let`s get this stuff handled safely,` Mr. Selby said.

    Toronto police were called in, and `they rendered it safe,` he said.

    Several pounds of explosive materials were contained in a steel drum, taken to an area near the Leslie Street Spit and detonated around 11:15 p.m.

    Toronto Police service has an `excellent` unit for disposal of explosives, Mr. Selby said.

    Discovery of the material led to an evacuation of the area around the storage locker and a temporary shutdown of TTC and GO Transit lines.

    The investigation continues, and no arrests have been made.]

    [ Conversely the Sinhalese must realise that collective Tamil identity cannot be pounded into a composite Sri Lankan one as if by mortar and pestle. Tamil compliance with a united Sri Lanka can be insisted upon by law and enforced by the state, but Tamil allegiance to a common Sri Lankan identity cannot be enforced it can only be accomplished through the earning of Tamil consent ]

    Remember this web site is by a Tamil and mostly socialists enjoyiong Capitalist economy write articles to this site.

    Tamils did not want to be Sri Lankan even before the birth of Sri Lanka. HOw we can say, Sinhalas can force Tamils to be Sri Lankans.

    Any one who is not happy should go back to Tamilnadu or where ever else they like.

    Some Tamils like NALE who was born in BURMA and enjoying British Citizenship never agree Tamils to be Sri Lankans. Only the Tamils in Sri Lanka can loose by insisting.

    Varada Rajaperumal can talk BS because he lived his life in Ndia and his children are married. Now, Converting Sri Lanka into a Federal State is his part Time haobby.

    [Remarks in Jaffna

    Misinformation from SF campaign. These guys should be ashamed of themselves. And, he wants to be the president!

    [The President started his speech by this:

    `There are no religious or racial problems. There are no racial politics. You all have a bright future` But as the booing and jeering of the crowd increased in Jaffna, so did his epithets: We are Sinhalese, this country is Sinhalese, and You Tamils just listen, without trying to be too smart

    What a sad state we have come to.]
