Hon. David Miliband, MP

Minister of Foreign Affairs House of House of Parliament Westminster London, UK

Dear David:

I just read that you had a tripartite meeting with Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Foreign Minister Ranjith Bogollagama accompanied by your Bobbsey Twin French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner, wanting to return to Sri Lanka to visit the IDP welfare villages in the North.

You two are meddlesome buggers, arenƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t you?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I almost think you are being His MasterƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Voice, the master being the Tamil Tiger lobbyists who seems to be loaded with billions of dollars in cash, seemingly capable of buying anything and everything to achieve their goal, a separate state.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I hope unlike your neighbour the salmon eating Viking Eric Solheim, who we now understand had made arrangements with the Eritreans to send out another 10 planes to the Tamil Tiger outfit to bomb Sri Lanka that you will be in good behaviour if you do go to Sri Lanka. WasnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t Eric Solheim a nasty bugger?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I could easily hold him by his collars and shake him until his bones rattle like a rattle-snake’s rattle.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I would hate to see more of your effigies been burnt by the angry Sri Lankans and thrown into the British High Commission compound.

I know David, you westerners think that Sri Lanka is too big for its breeches having swatted the Tamil Tigers like the Norwegians swatting and killing the nasty Norwegian house flies landing on their dinner plates, when you all wanted to save them calling for a ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-CeasefireƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ in the latter stages of the Eelam War IV.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And worse, you in particular, had difficulty to acceptƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  when Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Armed Forces told you, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-go jump in the Thames ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ from Westminster Bridge as we will do what we have to do to save our country from these marauding separatist Tamils, and who the hell are you to dictate to us what we should do for our country?ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚

You seem to forget the fateful day for the Londoners ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” Thursday, July 7, 2005, when I heard the radio newscast say: ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Three bomb explosions have hit London Underground trains, and a further bomb destroyed a bus in the city centre.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The Metropolitan Police service has initially confirmed that 33 people have been killed in four explosions on LondonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Transport System this morning, and the number wounded was as high as 700, in what is believed to be a terrorist attack.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ And every Londoner who used the tube the following morning was hesitant to get out of the house as they were shivering under their underwear like autumn leaves being bothered by the SeptemberƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s North Sea winds.

This was absolutely nothing compared to the mayhem that the Tamil Tigers created with claymore mine bombings around Sri Lanka.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  This was an every day affair for these bastards, and the Sri Lankans werenƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t sure whether they would return home alive every evening or would return in a casket, their bodies put together like pieces of a ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ jigsaw puzzle having been blown to smithereens.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And these Tamil terrorists would heartily announce to the public ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Do you know who wonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t be coming home to dinner tonight?ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That is how sick these buggers were that you and Kouchner and Solheim tried to save..ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  What the heck were you Three Musketeers thinking?

If you two Bobbsey Twins are planning to get to Sri Lanka buzzing like a couple of blue flies searching for a heap of dung to land on and cry out to the world how messy Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s IDP welfare villages are, then forget it David, as you wonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t find what you are looking for even if you use a Sherlock Holmes monocle.

UN Secretary General on Human Rights of IDPs, Professor Walter Klein was in Sri Lanka just a few days ago and seems to be quite satisfied with the human efforts and progress made by the Sri Lankan Government to rehabilitate and re-house the Tamils who were liberated by the Armed Forces from the Tamil Tiger clutches in May.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Remember if you and Kouchner have anything negative to say, just keep it to yourselves, as your words will count nothing anymore, and you two would be embarrassed by the Sri Lankans one more time.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I can bet my last dollar on that.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And remember what your Winston Churchill said, ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-The English never draw a line without blurring itƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.

Talking of Winston Churchill, you might find that he certainly had a place in Sri LankaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s war politics.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The Sri Lankan Armed Forces adopted his words ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never – in nothing great or small, large or petty ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” never give in except to convictions of honour and good senseƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚.

And President Mahinda Rajapaksa swears by these Winston Churchillian words ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-If you have an important point to make, donƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t try to be subtle or clever.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Use a pile-driver.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Hit the point once.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Then come back and hit it again.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Then hit the third time ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” a tremendous whack.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Be prepared for it, David.

David, just one word of caution for you and perhaps your Bobbsey twin Bernard. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ If you are given the opportunity to visit Sri Lanka again, just remove your uppity, pompous white-colonial master clothes in the plane itself as you will find out that those colonial pompous days are gone as you will be entertained with utmost scorn.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And for PeteƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s sake donƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t even enter Sri Lanka disguised as a ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”blue flyƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ going in search of a heap of dung, as your efforts will be fruitless as you may find none.

And before you alight from the plane at Katunayake airport keep these points in mind which will stand you in good stead and perhaps inject into you two something called ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-humilityƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚, a word which may not be in your vocabulary as yet.

  1. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ DonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t expect miracles from the Sri Lankan Government regarding housing the IDPs after ending the war five month ago, as we British were still building London County Council housing in Lambeth, Elephant & Castle, Camberwell, Shoreditch, Vauxhall and Brixton in 1960 to house the Londoners who lost their houses during the 1941 London Blitz when the Germens bombed London for 57 consecutive days;
  2. DonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t expect miracles from the Sri Lankan Government to have the millions of landmines ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ removed that had been planted by the Tamil Tigers, when Kosovo is still struggling to clear their landmines even after their war ended in 1999;
  3. DonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t expect miracles from the Sri Lankan Government to haveƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ all the 280,000 Tamil IDPs moved into their houses in their respective villages since the war ended in May, when Dragen Piljevic, Trustee for Refugees in Kosovo said on 9 January 2008, that 4,000 IDPs from Kosovo living in Prokuplje are facing a humanitarian crisis.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And that war ended in 1999;
  4. DonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t expect miracles from the Sri Lankan Government to have the 280,000 IDPs housed having ended the war five months ago, when even the Americans with their magic wand have the Katrina affected people in ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ New OrleansƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ still living in 13 post- Katrina Trailer Parks in temporary shelters since 2005; .
  5. DonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t expect miracles from the Sri Lankan government to have resettled the Tamil IDPs after five months of ending the Eelam war, when the Greek and Turkish Cypriots who were displaced in 1974 are still waiting to be resettled;
  6. Over 230,000 Afghans have been displaced since 2002 and there is not much done by the NATO countries to have them resettled.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Remember, you British are part of that consortium.

Good luck to you as well as to your Bobbsey twin Bernard, in case you are given the opportunity to enter Sri Lanka and go up north.

If Sri Lanka wants my advice, I would say ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢¢”š¬…” ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ…-What, David?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Oh No, He wonƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t Go!ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”š‚ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It is that simple.

    Kouchener too was the founder of RSF – reporters without borders and also the man in charge of Kosovo. He is a jew just like Miliband. Can you imagine Muslim Kosovo run by a Jew? Miliband is British just like the ‘Royal’ family is British – all usurpers, right?

  2. George Hodges Says:

    Very well said!
    As an Englishman that has always loved Sri Lanka and which now has the greatest President they ever had; I would like to suggest to the Sri Lankan Government that they REFUSE entry to the likes of Miliband, Kouchner and the rest of the Tiger sympathisers from the UK such as: Keith Vaz, that ineffable idiot Simon Hughes, who after just a few days in Sri Lanka for the first time, has ever since been a total expert on the country! And, of course, other illustrious trouble-makers from the USA, Canada, Norway etc. such as the one who was recently kicked back on a plane at Katunayake. Kick them all out when they try to come to your lovely island!
