Dear Lawrence:

What you said in your speech at the UN last night (Sept.26), “It is part of our responsibility as Canadians “”…” and the responsibility of the United Nations “”…” to eradicate terrorism in all its forms”, certainly told this card carrying Conservative, that our Canadian Government is brilliant in “double-speak”.  That statement had a tinge of dishonesty and a plane load of ‘double-speak’.

Why?  Because you were the very person who put out a pathetic statement from your Foreign Ministry Office when Sri Lanka on May 18, 2009, finally wiped out militarily the most ruthless terrorists in the world, the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam aka Tamil Tigers. 

These are the ruthless terrorists who invented the suicide body pack which is now creating havoc around the world with copy-cat suicide bombings and also killing our soldiers in Afghanistan.  They succeeded blowing up thousands in Sri Lanka with 388 suicide bombings which included the former head of state of India Rajiv Gandhi and President Ranasinghe Premadasa of Sri Lanka.   We Canadians didn’t have the backbone to say, “Well done, Sri Lanka”, when the rest of the world was saying “Congratulations, Sri Lanka”.

Do you know why Lawrence?  I’ll tell you why.  Because the Conservatives have now decided to pander to the GTA Tamils, hoping that the Conservatives too could claw some Tamil votes at the next Federal election.  As I told you earlier in my response to your statement on Sri Lanka eradicating Tamil Tiger terrorism for good, “It’s pathetic”.

What’s going on in your Conservative caucus, Lawrence?

My protest against the Conservatives is still on”¦as I have decided not to unload a single penny from my pocket for the rest of 2009 as a sustaining donor to the Conservative funds.  At least this Conservative has the spine to tell you big guys, that I don’t like you lot when you verbalize your “double speak” on terrorism and try to bully the puny Sri Lanka where I come from, for having the military brilliance, courage and guts to wipe out the Tamils Tigers single handed that we let Tamil-Canadians fund in the millions of dollars through the years, while the NATO consortium is still trying to wipe out Taliban terrorism.

Lawrence, while I say “Boo!“ to Canada’s double-speak on terrorism, I say “Way to Go, Sri Lanka!  Don’t ever think of dropping on to the ground and roll over pretending you are dead, just because Canada wants to bully you.  Canada is full of hot air when they speak of terrorism in general.  They are not consistent.”
