The Shoat Statements

Random musings by the multiple voices inside my head.

At long last, Anton Balasingham is dead. And I can't say that I'm sorry about it. Moderate Tiger he may have been, but a Tiger nevertheless. He caused enough damage to Sri Lanka while living in luxury in London. I fail to understand how these so-called (sole)representatives of the Tamil people live in the lap of luxury, while extorting money from and restricting food supplies to the very people they claim to represent. One must feel a bit sorry for Anton, though. Not a word was mentioned about him in the Sun God's Heroes Day speech. I guess it's true what they say - they don't miss you till you're gone.

And then we come to next point. I heard on news this morning that the SL gov. is donating 5 million rupees to the widow of TNA MP N. Raviraj. Really now. What is this nonsense? Has the gov. suddenly realised that they have excess funds? How many widows of LTTE targets gets even half of that? What baloney is this? Appeasing the peaceniks and NGO-types and those Scandinavian morons is one thing, but this is ludicrous. I wonder if the families of Lakshman Kadiragamar, Parami Kulatunga or any one else who was assasined were so handsomely compensated (yes, we ARE leaving CBK out of it). We're all sorry for Mr. Raviraj's untimely death, but excactly what has he done for Sri Lanka to deserve this? He was just another MP, who stood out from others since for every 168th insult he threw at the SL gov., he chastised the LTTE leadership. Oh yeah, a real hero of Sri Lanka. By this logic, the gov. must've mortgaged the country to compensate Lakshman Kadiragamar's family.

This is why the present SL gov. is unable to move forward with bringing an end to this LTTE problem. They are so hell bent on appeasing every Tom, Dick and Erik that they probably can't find the time to do more important things. Just take a look at the APC. Same MO. The JVP will pull out then the JHU will follow, and then they'll have to change the committee name, which will cease to be 'all party' anymore. Then maybe we'll have another election. We haven't had one of those for a while, and Ranil may relish the chance to lower the UNP rankings even further.

You can't please everyone. Why is the gov. not able to leave emotions, PR and the next election at the door, and try and think?
