fries Americans and good timing
The US government officially declared that in Asia the LTTE will
hopefully become a political player and not a terror group. Or something
to that effect. The US government chose absolutely fun timing to
deliver this official statement.
Hussein issuing a statement in Bhagdad (that's before he was removed,
statue and all) saying “it appears that the US government
is a sane law abiding regime; our investigations done in Baghdad
bear out that position. We think that the US can be brought back
into the fold of international law abiding nations.''
Next thing he
knows, Uncle Sam sends missiles within inches of Saddam’s
goatee -- and even his Information Minister is felled onto the floor
as a blitzkrieg of American tanks roll in towards Baghdad.
that the LTTE is coming back into the political mainstream just
when the organisation was walking out of talks (never mind for how
long) was a small faux pas maybe for Uncle Sam. This from a country
whose General's say civilians were shot, and add “it couldn't
be helped, the chick got in the way.'' Oh and I almost forgot, George
Bush first stated his intention to attack Iraq by telling his Cabinet
official Condoleezza Rice "F--- Sadaam Hussein.''
American statement on the LTTE and Sri Lanka doesn't stop there
but goes on to say that all Asian (or is it South Asian) countries
were firmly behind America in its war on terror. War on terror?
The Sri Lankan government was hemming and hawing and saying that
UN action should be sought, even as the tanks were rolling into
Baghdad - - and as an insurance policy the Prime Minister also added
that Sadaam Hussein should comply with UN resolutions.
If the Americans
call that support, why not ---- after all this government has nothing
against Mac Donald's Happy meals. That's support enough - - and
we didn't, the way the Americans re-named French fries freedom fries,
go on and rename American piti liberation piti, did we now?
has said that he can bring America - - to talks with the LTTE, you
know , kind of pull uncle Sam by the leash and bring him to the
table with Mr Balasingham and lot. Or so said Tamilchelvam.
We don't know
if anything went on between the Americans and Moragoda after that
statement was made by Thamilchelvam, but next thing you know, Moragoda
was swearing to do to Thamilchelvam's statue what the American GI's
did to Saddam's statue. No, no.
He was even
more livid. He was determined to call everything off - yes, even
to give up his ambitions to receive that prize beginning with the
big N that's given annually by the Swedish.
path with Moragoda is worse than a world leader crossing words with
George Bush, and you can ask Thamilchelvam and Adele Balasingham
that because soon they were on the phone apologising profusely to
Moragoda. What could we say -- it was like , strange -- something
like George W Bush apologising to Sadaam Hussein for invading Iraq
and walking all over his face. With his clout with America, Moragoda
will soon be accomplishing that too - except that he would rather
have Sadaam for dinner.
