Australian Ambassador’s Crime
Posted on January 20th, 2012
I refer to your ‘senior’ correspondent Daniel Flitton’s great ‘newsworthy’ article on Ms. Kathy Klugman’s ‘controversial’ appointment (http://www.watoday.com.au/national/controversial-diplomat-snares-gillard-role-20120118-1q6kl.html).
Perhaps, Daniel did not know that there were two Australian women who played a significant role in Sri Lanka recently.
The first, an Aussie nurse, Adele, married to a Tamil Tiger leader went and lived in Sri Lanka. She put in a great effort to train and make Tamil women into walking bombs and trained Tamil girls on how to commit suicide by biting on a cyanide capsule which she ceremoniously put around the necks of the young girls. You can see her in action here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aqbj8PHTtHY. Your ‘senior’ correspondent Daniel did not have anything to say about this Aussie and guess what, this alleged war criminal leads a comfortable life in London now protected by the UK authorities.
Then we have the second woman, Kathy, who did a tremendous job in stopping the flow of economic refugees to Australia. I personally know that she was an ardent sponsor and supporter of the Cancer Hospital in Sri Lanka to help Sri Lankans of all ethnicities.
I find it appalling that Daniel saw fit to ridicule a woman who safegaurded Australian interests and did her best to help out all Sri Lankans to the best of her ability.
Perhaps, if Kathy chose to put cyanide capsules around Tamil Tigers instead of giving out certificates for rehabilitation, she would have been praised by the so-called ‘senior’ correspondents. I guess, Kathy’s crime was that she refused to share the blood money offered by the Tamil Tigers for singing hosannas about their utopia.
Come on Danny, don’t rubbish those who serve this country even if you get offerred a lot of money for doing so – Australia, surely is more important to you than that? I hope the ‘senior’ correspondent Daniel will join us in celebrating the Australia Day on the 26th.
