Re: Commonwealth Dilemma

Dear  Editor:

I have a different take on Harper’s Government’s feeling that the decision to allow Sri Lanka to host this year’s summit was premature.  And, of course Prime Minister Stephen Harper wanting to boycott the summit if he didn’t find Sri Lanka’s significant progress in its human rights, is really playing to the Tamil gallery who gave him nine ridings in the Greater Toronto Area at the last election.

I am at a loss to understand what he is talking about.  This is a Prime Minister of a Commonwealth country who let the Tamil Diaspora feed the Tamil Tiger terrorists with two million dollars a month for 13 years to buy weapons to kill 100,00 innocent people in 27 years; this is a Prime Minister who  has had it difficult to acknowledge that by eliminating the Tamil Tigers, the most ruthless terrorists group in the world, who also assassinated two heads of state, Rajiv Gandhi of India and President Premadasa of Sri Lanka and his Tamil Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar, the Sri Lankan Government  gave back the right-to-life to 22 million Sri Lankans which had been hijacked for 30 years; this is the Prime Minister who had  it difficult to pat on Sri Lanka’s back and say “Way to go Sri Lanka for eliminating the most ruthless terrorists group in the world single handed” when other countries in the west did, and let his Foreign Minister Lawrence Cannon send out a pathetic Press Release after the war ended; this is the Prime Minister who had difficulty up to now to acknowledge the fact that the Sri Lankan soldiers liberated 295,873 Tamils who were held as a human shield by the Tamil Tigers for 30 months and herded them like unwashed cattle from the west coast to the east coast; this is the Prime Minister who has had difficulty to acknowledge the fact that the Sri Lankan government prepared a million meals a day to feed these liberated Tamils three hearty meals a day, breakfast, lunch and dinner, and not let them starve to death in their  temporary welfare camps; this is the Prime Minister who has had difficulty to acknowledge the Sri Lankan Government sending these nearly 300,000 liberated Tamils back to their original homes after they had been restored, rebuilt within three years and the terrain that they atood on de-mined,  and who wants to boycott the Colombo summit in November.

I say  to Prime Minister Stephen Harper, go ahead and boycott it as in my world, I have one word to describe such action, “hypocrisy”, especially when he attended the Francophonie Summit in the Democratic Republic of Congo, a country run by a brutal leadership,

There  is one thing that I could assure Prime Minister Stephen Harper is that whether he attends the Colombo Summit or not, the sun will rise from the east as it has always done on Sri Lanka and shine on its people who have come through a horrible 30 years  where 100,000 were killed and scores of thousands maimed  for life by the Tamil Tigers, who are in the process of reconciliation, and set in the west in the evening, having let them live another day without being attacked by exploding Tamil Tiger bombs and bullets bought with Canadian dollars..

I say “Hallelujah” to Sri Lanka, and you do not need friends like this  who happen to be country- hypocrites.

    I wonder, would it not be simpler and effective Asoka, to write to President Rajapakse to withdraw from holding the CHOGM in Sri Lanka (held at tax payers money)and also withdraw from the Commonwealth instead of writing such letters which has had no effect. (unless you advice of to the contrary)

    who needs this defunct organisation called commonwealth? the anglo saxon ungulates of course, to impose subtle domination over the british subjects of bygone era, headed by a mad cow. what asian countries should do is to quit one one one, of course we can’t expect the africans to do this as they still suffer from the slave mentality(pardon me for saying this, buts its true, except for people like kenyaata, mugabe, the nemesis of wasp)

    “who needs this defunct organisation called the commonwealth?”
    – nobody needs it more than the Indian Union. Even Australia has relegated the Commonwealth to third place behind APEC and the EAG.

    Forget about the Indian run org.

    Canada needs people like Asoka Weerasinghe to protect Canadian interests from corrupt politicians, misusing tax payers money. Also all peaceloving SriLankans should be grateful to people like Asoka Weerasinghe who are relentlessly and fearlessly exposing the low grade politicians and others for their hypocrisy and contributions to terrorists to destroy other nations in exchange for electoral votes and undeclared funds. Can we ever call them gentlemen?
    Initially Canada may have contributed 2million dollars a month of tax payers money to tamil terrorists, believing their lies. But today there is no question about the crimes these terrorists had committed in SriLanka and are tryimg hard to revive their gruesome money spinning profession of killing and distruction and using some funds for enjoyment of a luxurious life for themselves and their kith and kin.
    By virtue of the fact that Canadians are guilty of the Colombo Central Bank bombing as well as many other killings and distructions in Sri Lanka, those politicians like Stephen Harper who are responsible for funding groups with terrorist links, are accountable for the deaths and distruction in SriLanka by the Tamil terrorists who received Candian funds.
    Yes is Stephen Harper himself is answerable for these so called “war crimes” committed during the past three decades, which he is now trying to thrust upon SriLankan forces that had to defend the nation against these Canadian funded groups?
    People like Stephen Harper and Navi Pillay could be reluctant to visit SriLanka, as then they would see the truth on ground and lose their chance to plead ignorance for backing up terrorist propoganda.
