Anti-UN hunger strike

The government of Sri Lanka must surely heave a sigh of relief at the news that Wimal Weerawansa has resigned his portfolio. As a cabinet minister, he should have had greater decorum, and not gone flying off like a cheap movie hero. Questions such as these need to be solved through diplomacy by governments and other authorities. Members of the government, especially, need to be extra careful when they shoot off from the hip. Last week in the US, General McChrystal, the commander of forces in Afghanistan was sacked for shooting off his mouth-no First Amendment rights there-simply because he was in the ‘government’ of the war effort, and he had no right to let his tongue loose. Mr. Weerawansa, by turning into a rowdy protester certainly embarrassed the government and the people of Sri Lanka by his actions. He could have made a better case for the country by researching the topic very carefully, and presenting facts and figures about both the UN’s unreasonable double-standard approach, and Sri Lanka’s position in her fight against what was known as the most vicious, most ruthless, and supposedly most efficient terrorist organization (finally proved wrong by the courageous leadership of the president,and valiant sacrifice by the armed forces) which had the capability not only of murdering national leaders at will, but buying others with the plentiful blood money it obtained through extortion, drug dealing and other nefarious means. 
 
That being said, it must be pointed out that the actions of the UN, especially that of its SecretaryGeneral, have been been questionable or even downright unfair, unjust, illogical and not worthy of an international body whose actions should be beyond criticism.
 
It is clear that the many vested interests in the UN have twisted Mr Moon’s arms, probably neck, too. By deciding to hound Sri Lanka (the first country to get rid of terrorism within its boundaries instead of merely paying lip service to it, and continuing to let innocent people be plagued by the menace, as it happens in many countries), Mr Moon has become totally eclipsed and does not do justice to the august position he holds. This is obvious when one considers his immediate response-to move the UNDP offices out of Sri Lanka. Just because one person goes out of line, Mr. Moon decides to take bread out of the mouths of the hungry as it were. The UNDP conducts programs that assist the welfare of people who deserve such assistance, and here is Mr. Moon acting the dictator! Not very becoming of international leadership of the stature of the Secretary General of the United Nations.
 
It is high time that the United Nations examine the problem at hand honestly, rationally and reasonably, and did right by the people of Sri Lanka, who suffered under the jackboot of  the worst kind of terrorism for over three decades. Before highlighting those who died in a war conducted by a legitimate body, namely the government of Sri Lanka, against a terrorist organization which was using innocent people as human shields to ensure their evil designs, the UN should consider the tens ofthousands of people-Sinhala, Tamil and Muslim whom the terrorists murdered as they slept in their homes, worked in their farms, prayed in their churches and temples, traveled in buses, and trains or on the road as a part of their ethnic cleansing program to create a “terrorist homeland.” Let it not be said that they are the forgotten, for their lives were sacrificed at the altar of the terrorist.
 
Concentrate on helping the Tamil people- the innocent pawns of the terrorists, used as human shields. Assist them in settling down to the peaceful lives they were deprived of by the terrorists for the last thirty years. That’s what the UNDP can do. You are puniishing those very people who suffered in order to satisfy the whims of some politically motivated individuals who are obviously maneuvring you like a puppet on a string to ‘punish’ the very people who liberated them.
 
 Not ten terms as Secretary General is worth one bad judgment-especially in a position such as yours.

    Oh look the kalu suddha is back to carry out more slave work for his white masters.

    Why do you not ask your precious Tamil people to look after themselves starting off from the die-ass-pora? Or maybe from this guy:

    “Tunku Abdul Rahman had the statesmanship to allow Singapore to secede from Malaysia peacefully. But the Sri Lankan rulers do not have that wisdom. I stand on this stage without fear and state that Tamil Eelam will be born only through violent struggle and bloodshed. We are ready for the _bloody_ struggle – Appapillai Amirthalingum at TULF victory meeting at the Ramakrishna Hall, Wellawatte (1977)

    Why are Tamils always our problem? Sinhalese have grievances and miseries as well that are far more real and legitimate and longer running that need to be addressed before these cry baby destroyers driven by their selfish greed are even given a look. Their fate is their own creation, unfortunately they have a habit of taking others to oblivion with them and they are an extremely ungrateful lot. Would love to see them try their race based parties, politics and handing out threats of annihilation and subjugation of the majority as election platforms along with BRUTAL VIOLENCE if the majority refuse to “submit” say in India or Malaysia against the North Indians or Malays. See how long they last, they would not even get to an “armed struggle” phase because they would be crushed and suppressed before the political stage even took off.

    We gave them too much “help”.
