Truck Bomb Ramming In Nice
Posted on July 15th, 2016

Dear Editor,

Our hearts bleed for the victims of the terrorist ramming of a truck laden with explosives into  participants of Bastille day celebrations in Nice France. To Sri Lankan’s it is a grim reminder of the carnage following a similar explosive laden truck ramming   by the Tamil Tiger terrorists  into the Central Bank in Colombo in January 1996. We support the French President’s undertaking   to seek out the miscreants from wherever, for punishment  .

However, I can’t help but also recall that it was the French foreign minister along with his British counterpart that in, April 2009 unsuccessfully pressured the then Sri Lankan president to call off the offensive that ended three decades of Tiger Terrorism  in Sri Lanka barely a month later. One hopes that the folly of such pressuring is realized even now.

Even more important would be the French  and the other western leader’s realization of the folly of the continued persecution of Sri Lanka through the UNHCR, for more and more commissions to investigate  unsubstantiated Tiger diaspora  allegations of human rights violations during their defeat. Many see this as a reprisal for Sri Lanka’s insolence then and economic factors necessitated closeness to China now  .

    The difference between Islamist Terrorists and Tamil Tiger terrorists is that the entire world including the UNHCR have condemned Islamist terrorism, whereas, Tamil Tiger terrorism, was not condemned by the West, India and UNHCR, and instead these short sighted Western nations and organisations forced Sri Lanka to negotiate with the brutal terrorists, whilst giving sanctuary with new identities to those Tamil terrorists that escaped to the West, with bogus stories of toture.
    Ironically the Tamil Tiger terrorists knew only violence and were not interested in a peaceful resolution, thereby allowing the Sri Lankan government to defeat them militarily, to usher in peace within Sri Lanka. However, those that escaped to the West are still mollycoddled by the Western politicians. Unfortunately, the result of Western inaction perhaps is that, today we see Islamist terrorists using the very same despicable methods the Tamil Tiger terrorists used to destroy Sri Lanka.

    Thank you Chula.

    No Western nation knew the brutal impact of terrorism until terrorism struck them. No one knows what it is to be in another’s shoes.

    When Tamil terror hit this country repeatedly without respite what France and other Western nations, under the vain label of ‘the international community’ proferred their advice to us. What they always said was: this act of terror only shows the urgency of a political settlement with the Tamils.

    So, in spite of the human sympathy we have for the victims, what we tell the French is: this act of terror only highlights the urgency of coming to a political settlement with the Jihadists.

    The French are powerless against these rabid Muslims terror attacks. When the terrorists hit Paris, their president Hollande told the nation that: the french response would be pitiless (impitoyable). That threat was

Besides their absolute powerlessness, they are also caught up in the web of their own vain glory and stupidity. with the norm of ‘human rights’ they impose on others their margin of manoeuvre is practically nill, Holland threatens to continue bombing Iraq and Syria not admitting that it was precisely the Western policy of ‘regime change’ that brought these calamities on them.

    France is not a third grade power fighting to keep the wolf away from the tables of their citizens. They have no more clout in international affairs. For them it is a case of: kathawa dolawen, gamana paying.

    What these haughty nations have thrown as others are boomerangs that have done the whole circle and are now striking at their very source. It is the law of karma that is now at work.

    We condemn Terrorism, anywhere.

    Root Causes of Terrorism must be addressed, everywhere. Or else it is only just patchwork solutions, every time. Same for Lanka – address the Root Causes.

    While sympathizing with the victims I must say the French security forces were very inefficient in dealing with this lone wolf. I could see all the French people and thousands of security people running like headless chicken aimlessly. They could send the most technically sophisticated drone many miles away and kill a person but there wasn’t a single cop to shoot the tires of the vehicle and stop it immediately without allowing it to plough through a mass of people for two kilo meters. If a Sri lankan cop was there the immediate thing he would do is that.
    The other thing is that these French people are mortally scared of terrorist looking at the way they run for their lives. Compare the difference when our central bank was bombed. The people there walked away calmly though many were injured and bleeding. Our security forces cleared every thing in less than an hour. This is exactly what the terrorist want to do: instill fear and also give maximum publicity. Thanks to BBC and CNN they do it free of charge.

    Better if Kouchner ask for some help from SL security forces how to conduct anti terrorist work.

    Even before addressing the Root Causes of Terrorism, let us address HYPOCRISY and DOUBLE STANDARDS of the means used!

    These Western Nations apply one standard when terrorism strikes them, and they apply an entirely DIFFERENT standard to Sri Lanka when Sri Lanka ERADICATED TERRORISM after suffering for 30 long years from attacks by Tamil Terrorists, given safe haven and assistance by these very same W4estern Countries to wage terror in Sri Lanka.

    Even now, these HYPOCRITICAL Westerners are HOUNDING Sri Lanka for HAVING UTTERLY DEFEATED the TERRORISTS after wasting 30 years suffering rampant murder and mayhem listening to their HOLIER THAN THOU bilgewater advice to negotiate with and APPEASE TERRORISTS!

    Will the French now NEGOTIATE with & APPEASE Al-Quaida, the Islamic State, and other assorted Islamic terror groups?

    HELL NO! French President Hollande has VOWED to rain hell, fire and brimstone on the Islamic Turban Heads in Syria and Iraq! ‘

    Now let us see how he ensures “human rights” and “democracy” for the peoples of those countries, while attacking terrorists hiding in their midst using them as human shields! Calling Kouchner & Millibanda …. where art thou? Here is where you can REALLY SHINE spouting bilgewater in defence of the TERRORISTS!

    Will Hollande send FRENCH GROUND TROOPS to sort out and differentiate between innocent civilians and armed terrorists at close quarters, as the Sri Lanka Armed Forces did against the LTTE, or will they avoid a high death rate among French troops by firing long range missiles from offshore ships and airborne drones killing 100 civilians for each AK-47 wielding terrorist in their midst? Will he magnanimously accept the HIGH TECH CARNAGE as COLLATERAL DAMAGE among civilians as an acceptable trade off for the lives of French Troops in their Western Style War on Terror! If he does, why do they say the OPPOSITE when the SriLanka Armed Forces had the LTTE Corralled in Puthumathalan? Why?? Is it because French Lives Matter MORE than Sri Lankan Lives??

    I bet Hollande will do PRECISELY THAT, and will be praised to high heaven by all Western Leaders even as they CONTINUE TO HOUND Sri Lanka for HAVING FINALLY ROOTED OUT the Tamil terrorists who killed over 150,000 innocents in Sri Lanka with the help of these MEALY MOUTHED HYPOCRITES who initiated a global crusade and are prosecuting it sowing chaos and destruction worldwide!

    These Westerners say they are FOR DEMOCRACY, but they are HOUNDING the ONLY DEMOCRACY that eradicated terrorism in the last CENTURY in our own country, by our own efforts without inviting in one foreign soldier, sacrificing our own blood and treasure, with the most humane treatment of civilians yet witnessed in a war zone!
