There is a saying in the West, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-everything has a priceƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The $4 billion dangled by the western co-chairs was enough of a deal maker for then prime minister Ranil Wickremasinghe and his right-wing cabinet, to agree to sell our mother.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

Similarly, Ronald ReganƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s promise to come to the aid of J R Jayawardena – WickremasingheƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s uncle – was another instance of bungling by a traitorous leader of Lanka who was ready to sell our mother Lanka in order to sing his glory to the world.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That bungling antagonized India and the Soviet Union and got us embroiled in the white-manƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s cold-war politics.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  For Indira Gandhi, however, that was just the excuse needed to expand IndiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s hegemonic goal – the Tamil terrorists were just the catƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s paw.

Speaking of traitorous leaders, Don Juan Darmapala comes to prominence.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  His price was the protection of European Portuguese Plunderers, to stay in power in Kotte – no different from the more recent Kotte traitors who tried to sell mother Lanka.

Things have changed!

[It would be good for Mr. Sullivan to take a tour of Tamil Nadu to see the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”civilian administeredƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ squalor, and see the condition of the low-cast Tamil Dalits, who may need the big dollar aid.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Then with ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”free and unfettered accessƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ to the millions of Tamil Dalits there he can offer US aid through the services of the international NGOs, ICRC etc.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ 

Mr. Sullivan shouldnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢tƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  forget to tag along the Human Rights Watch (HRW) people, and Mrs. Navinathan Pillai, a Tamil herself, of the UN Human Rights Commission, to look into the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-bride-burningƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ issue in Tamil Nadu.]ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚
