Dear Robert O’Blake:
I just read a news item titled ‘Blake to raise LTTE’s concerns with Colombo’, in The Island (Sri Lanka) of April 3, 2011, bylined Shamindra Ferdinando which says: ‘Close on the heels of the Washington meet, the US Department had sought to dispatch Blake to Colombo, sources said.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  The US, one of Sri Lanka’s Peace Co-Chairs, had become a conduit for the LTTE rump, sources said expressing concern over the LTTE using the US to step up pressure on Sri Lanka to achieve its ends.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Sources said that the US had indicated that Blake needed to be in Colmbo urgently.’ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Really!
Oh! sure, sure.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Blake needs to be in Colombo urgently like a hole in his head to drag the ghosts of the LTTE from their gravesƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  who are living under six inches of soil on the banks of the Nandikathal lagoon.
You know what Bob?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I am not sure whether your schooling system in the US has a kindergarten, but I went through that in Ceylon many, many colonialƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ moons ago.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And we were taught nursery rhymes.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And one of thoseƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  nursery rhymesƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ is still stuck in my mind, and this is how it goes.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  I believe it is called Bob and the Tiger, and we used to sing it when the class teacher played the piano.
Bobby with his Tiger friend
met a lion in the jungle
and it was a big hairy lion too.
But Bobby being brave and bold
cried “Boo, Lion, Boo!”
I am no baby boy
and I am with my Tiger friend
to be afraid of you!
Back you go with your
Tiger friend the bigƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ lion
roared, “Boo, BooƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Bobby, Boo!”
And Bobby gotƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ on the Tiger’s back
and ran for hisƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ dear life
sobbing “Boo, Hoo, Hoo!”.
There is moralƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ in this Nursery Rhyme, Bob. ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  You don’t mess around with a big lion,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ and it doesn’t matterƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ whether you are accompanied by a ferocious Tiger.
Surely, Bob, you are not being a stupid MessengerƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Boy for this LTTE rump,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  are you?ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  They all hooked outƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ of Sri Lanka being cowards not wanting to face a bullet triggered by Sri Lankan forces, and sentƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the kidnapped innocent Tamil kids, girls and boys, to fight their war along the front line,ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  only to fall like scythed flowers in a poppy field with their blood oozing like ketchup from their chests not quick enough to draw their Kalashnikov triggers to shoot down the legitimate keepers of Sri Lanka, the armed forces.
These are the cowards who prolonged the war by funding this war with US, Australian and Canadian dollars, EU Euros and British sterlings.
Round upƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ these cowards andƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ have themƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ charged in an InternationalƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ War Crimes Court for aiding and abetting an unnecessary war and having their own kids killed, let alone the thousands of ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ innocent civiliansƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  killed from the Sinhalese and Muslim communities.
I know Bob, you like to show your importance dabbling in Sri Lanka’sƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  internal affairs.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  JustƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ scrap your stupidity, as it doesn’tƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and will not cut mustard in any Sri Lankan household.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  And they matter as you don’t live thereƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ norƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ do the LTTE rump.
Well, do Fr. S.J. Emmanuel, Suren Surendran, Dr. Elias Jeyarajah and Grace Williams a favour.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  Give them a one way plane ticket to Sri Lanka, enough funds for a taxi to go to Galle Face Green fromƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  the Katunayake airport, and enough funds to buy four kites from a kite sellar and ask them to fly those kites in the Galle Face Green’s windy ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ skies, courtesy of President Barak Obama.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  That certainly will be a generous gesture on the part of the Americans and leave Sri LankaƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  and the LTTE ghosts alone.
And if you want to enjoy your ‘urgent’ trip to Colombo being the messenger of the LTTE rump, seeƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  that you take your dancing shoes with you as you will get an opportunity to dance with Ms. Grace Williams, as when you switch on the radio you will hear President Mahinda Rajapaksa crooning Frank Sinatra’s song, “I Do It My Way”.ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚  It is a Fox Trot, by the way.

    Tamil grievances have arisen from their aspirations, not vice versa. We’ve heard Emmanuel elucidating Tamil aspirations from the pulpits of catholic churches in Jaffna when he was the vicar there. Emmanuel preached about Eelam and how to get it through terrorism. Emmanuel’s interest in Eelam was so much; he even found a special place for Tamil terrorists in his God’s heaven. Emmanuel and his GTF is a part and parcel of LTTE rump that is full of tiger spots.

    Likewise, we knew how Robert Blake and his hierarchies at the pentagon pulled strings to frustrate our fight against terrorism. Let us remind ourselves a bit of that history: Anglo-French-American consortium and most of their buddies named both Al Quada and LTTE as terrorists. They said LTTE is the most dangerous terrorist organization and is a hindrance to the world peace. The US started their fight with Al Quada in 90s and Sri Lanka started its fight with LTTE long before that. Both aimed to rid the terrorists. Today, the LTTE is finished but Al Quada is very much alive not just in Afghanistan but in very many countries. Should not Anglo-French-American consortium explore, why? I’ll tell them why.

    But first, I must let me say this as well; when Sri Lanka was about to vanquish LTTE in 2009, Anglo-French-American consortium was visibly not happy. They asked Sri Lanka government to let LTTE leader Pirapaharan surrender to a third party. They didn’t ponder whether they would allow anyone to offer Bin Laden the same privilege in a similar circumstance? Clearly, the US wanted to preserve terrorism on one hand and destroy it in another. It is that double standards that hinder the defeat of Al Quada.

    When I read a western journalistic report about GTF and Blake that said; “Key concerns of the Tamil people and ways of addressing their grievances were discussed at length with GTF and Father Emmanuel,” I immediately knew what they were aiming at. I am sure very many others knew it as well. So, let’s tell them, we are not amused of Mr. Blake’s discussions with GTF and why he wants to visit Sri Lanka.

    100% true. As long as they hold these aspirations, grievances will haunt them.

    There is nothing other than money. Many Organisations of Diaspora Tamils have millions of Black money (Blood money). The dead persons at Nandikathal lagoon are paid/ or non Paid labourers of LTTE organisations. They were brained washed. Foreign Governments know very well that these organisations are not representing Sri Lankan Tamils. They use for conspiracy aginst Sri Lanka. Many Supporters who were behind these organisations and earned big money are now in Sri Lanka and in India. They are investing for their own future.

    We all must be careful on such double game boys from Tamil Diaspora. They don`t love their own community or
    Sri Lanka. They need money only. Organisation funktioning in the name of Sri Lankan Tamils are
    only for safegurding the Persons who are investing the bloodmoney in Sri Lanka and in India.

    One day suddenlly they shake hands with Sri Lankan Government once their moneylaundering is succeeded.
    The activities of these organisations and persons bring difficulties and sufferings to the Sri Lankan Tamils only.

    People like Robert Blake has made USA the most hated nation in the world. Disgusting to the core.

  5. Sri Rohana Says:

    Before he comes to Sri Lanka Robert Blake should visit Libya, Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan. My challenge to yankee white house secretary if he is a real peace messenger just walk in Tripoli, Baghdad, Kabul or Karachchi. Without a second word they will grind him to make their kebabs or falafel.
    My apologies to Muslim brothers! I forgot that they hate pigs. So Blake can come to Colombo meet his tamil terrorists LTTE mates and enjoy free food, Liquor, and other bribes from tamil eelam terrorists. He should not forget to take the reports prepared by LTTE Colombo branch to submit Obama and Hilary.
