Say one thing, do something else. See certain things, but not others. Take umbrage at nothing and keep mum over the horrifying. Give a penny, take dollar (or Euro). Help and demand pound of flesh for services rendered. Sorry, 100 pounds of flesh, closest to the heart, blood and all. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the nutshell version of US foreign policy. It describes also the UK, France and other countries in the West. Sadly, our friends across the Palk Straits seem to have figured this is the foreign policy framework that has to be adopted if they are to qualify for membership among the big-boy thugs of the world.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ These are ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”friendsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢, the kinds who people like Dayan Jayatilleka believe we must worship on account of ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”geo-political realitiesƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ in the quest for modernity. We should barter sovereignty, submit to land-theft proposals (as such are demanded by Eelamists), erase history, culture and civilization-mark and so on, for all this.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Britain claims it is carrying out an independent investigation on Sri Lanka. The EU already has. Barack ObamaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s right something, Ban Ki-moon, corrupt to the core and slavish beyond ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”the point of dutyƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ to Western interests, appointed some jokers to manufacture a report that can buttress demand for such an investigation. WhatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s new in this world, ladies and gentlemen?

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ Charity begins at home, they say. Easy to say.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ The other day, France gifted arms and ammunition to a bunch of terrorists fighting Muammar Gaddafi in Libya. Reminded me of the US arming the Mujahiddin in Afghanistan against the then Soviet backed regime. Back then we hadnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t heard of the Taliban or Al Qaeda. Now we do. These thug-nations know that there are Al Qaeda elements among the Libyan ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”rebelsƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢. ThatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s just a minor details for those who have propped, defended and even saluted the worst terrorists the world has known as long as theyƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ve served strategic political and economic interests.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ France didnƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢t have a mandate from even the sorely compromised UN to arm anyone, terrorists or otherwise. Gaddafi is not the only leader in this world who can be called ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”tyrantƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ and not the only one to turn guns on citizens. France, Britain and the United States have many friends in the Tyrants Club who think nothing of spraying bullets on protesting citizenry. There are no UN motions to protect the victims. No bomb-dropping on residences, hospitals and schools. No children and grandchildren of tyrants are dying as a result.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ French Foreign Affairs Minister Alain Juppe has to justify: ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”We believe that within the frameworks of [UN Security Council] Resolutions 1970 and 1973 — and 1970 as a whole — it is clear that all means are legitimate for protecting peaceful civilians.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ RussiaƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that France’s interpretation of the resolutions presented at Friday’s meeting “allows anyone to do anything for any reason”. ANYTHING GOES (as long as itƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s the Axis of Evil doing it) seems to be the motto of the New World Order heralded by the fall of the Soviet Bloc. The Axis of Evil, ladies and gentlemen, comprises the United States of America, Britain and other countries in the European (India seeks to but has not have won membership. Yet). These are not the first days of the New World Order, though. These are the last and hence the tag ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Last Hurrahs!ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ seems warranted, but thatƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s no consolation for the dead and dying in Libya.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ What does the USA stand for in Libya? Cynthia McKinney knows. NATO bombs have so far killed GaddafiƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s son and three of his grandchildren. Targeted assassination is not within the scope of the UN Security Council Resolution unless itƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s just UN-speak for ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”ANYTHING GOESƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢. It nevertheless violates US law, international law, international humanitarian law and international human rights law, McKinney points out.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ McKinney witnessed NATOƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s targeting of civilians: ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”NATO bombs and missiles landed in residential neighborhoods, hit schools, exploded near hospitals, destroyed parts of the public broadcasting infrastructure, and narrowly missed killing students at Al Fateh University; a naval blockade allows arms to flow to NATOƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s Libyan allies, but stops food, fuel, and medicine from entering non-NATO ally-held areasƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ All this is what the Obama Administration is sanitizing as ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Kinetic military activity (KMA)ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢. Rush Limbaugh, conservative/Republican talk-shop though he is, put things in perspective thus: ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”I swear, this is surreal. KMA, kinetic military activity has replaced WTF, which is winning the future. IƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢m sure you thought it was something else. Kick my (Ass) has replaced what the (f***). Okay, so I guess weƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢re to assume itƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not a protest anymore. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s a kinetic assembling action. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not a riot. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s kinetic thuggery action. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not a vacation. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s kinetic leisure action. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not golf. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s kinetic ball striking action. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not dancing. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s kinetic foot action. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not sex. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s kinetic Lewinsky. IƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢m not drunk. IƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ve been engaging in kinetic adult beverage action. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not an election. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s kinetic voting action. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not radio. ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s kinetic Limbaugh action. Whatever. Kinetic means motion. Military means armed forces. Action means motion. Kinetic action, moving motion. And these are the smartest people in the world.ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ ItƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢s not a joke. People are being killed and maimed in Libya. Citizens. Deliberately. NATO forces are doing this. The rebels they support, entertain (British Prime Minister hosted for chit-chat Mustafa Abdul Jalil, the Chairman of the ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”Libyan Interim National Transitional CouncilƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢) and arm the killers who have proved they can match Gaddafi in the matter of thuggery; blow for blow, blood for blood, eye for eye, limb for limb, and murder for murder.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ McKinney, showcases a slice of what NATO is supporting in Libya. Check it out: It is to the thugs engaged in the kind of butchery the video portrays that France is gifting guns. This is ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”BY ANY MEANSƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢ and ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”ANYTHING GOESƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ¢-¾‚¢. There is a comment which says it all: ƒÆ’‚¢ƒ¢-¡‚¬ƒ”¹…”This is the fate of everyone pro Gaddafi without any trial, any justice just kill them, this is pure murder. What you do now will haunt you later. Where is the shuyookh of the ummah? Why aren’t they talking about this (harj/killings) or have they all become puppets?

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ And I am told the perpetrators and supporters of this action as well as those who are blind to all this are upset about some ALLEGED war-crimes in Sri Lanka.

ƒÆ’-¡ƒ”š‚ WTF, David Cameron? WTF are you Navi Pillai? And how about you, Dr. Dayan Jayatilleka?

    I heard, the word “Terrorism” wass ontroduced to the voacabulary by Israel soon after the 2nd world war. See, many things happened in Africa, eastern Europe and now in Libya, look almost sponsored by the UN. What is the importance of UN or it’s member nations, Only a few countries are running the world.

    People can talk, but most countries are pre-occupied with their own problems and look, they live their own lives. But, a few countries, still live like pirates and they run the world. It looks every one has accepted it.

    I think Sri Lanka can handle our problems easily. But, the politicians are power hungry. They are very cut throat even to the extent they would destroy the country or destabilize it or sabotage it, which I havn’t seen in this countries.

    When they talk to the foreign journalists or to radios or TVs, see how good english these Libyan Rebles or Egyption – Freedom fighters are talking. They talk very good English and look they have lived decades, because just a few years won’t give them that much accent, overseas in western countries.

    Go the home pags of NGOs that support these peoples. Some of those NGOs hure only from people who were active as religious – workers.

    Great Malinda.. You write with knowledge and passion, you say things which can never be printed in self censored American press.

    Most of worlds ills today stems from USA and EU living Beyond their means. With no colonies to rob from, they are creating pseudo-colonies. Libya could be one of them. If they can install a puppet, they could steal Libyan OIL till cows come home. Libya has 2% of worlds oil, best quality oil in the world and Africa’s largest production facility. We could see American forces from Afghanistan now getting shifted to the Libyan Slaughterhouse.

    I wonder why Moon and Pillay are so silent? How can humans go so low? What is this UN? Just a prostitute of America?
