Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

Colombo adopting Machiavellian approach to Karuna, inevitable
says SLMM Head Gen. Henricsson

7 May 2006 [Tamil Net]

On Colombo disarming Karuna Group as agreed in the Geneva-I talks, the Head of Sri Lanka Monitoring Mission (SLMM), Ulf Henricsson asked,

"Well, I think they (Security Forces) will have a lot of problems, if they do it [disarm Karuna]. Further I don't see any reason for the government to do it. To be honest. If you have a warring faction against you and if your enemy is split why should you try to stop that. Have you read Machiavelli?”, in an interview appeared in the latest edition of Sunday Observer.

The competence, probity and bona fide of SLMM Head Gen. Henricsson is called into question. His irresponsible statement something like adding fuel to the flames would definitely exacerbate the ongoing racial violence in the country. He is all out to induce the majoritarian Singhalese regime with Machiavellian motive whereby it would resort to clever and deceitful schemes to crush the Tamil community in Sri Lanka.

Firstly, SLMM Head Gen. Henricsson should be aware and should not forget that Tamil militants (viz: LTTE) are struggling against racial genocide for a noble cause of saving the Tamil Nation for its fundamental rights.Secondly, SLMM, by its presence, is expected to do the needful within its might to find an enduring political solution based on the Tamil people's right to self determination.

Thirdly, it would be comprehensible even to a man of low intellect that the SLMM- Head by his defending the presence of Karuna group by prioritizing the reading of ‘Machiavelli,’, has confirmed that he is not least bothered about the peace and harmony or the core issues of the ethnic conflict in the country.

Fourthly, it appears that the SLMM-Head has preferred Machiavellian motive to the Cease Fire Agreement and also the teachings of religions such as Christianity and Buddhism. Do all these mean that he wants to see Sri Lanka soaked in blood by the prolongation of gory war?

Fifthly, is the SLMM-Head aware of the fact that when it transpired in the LTTE that Karuna, one of the most trusted erstwhile confidants of LTTE militants was guilty of embezzlement of tens of millions of movement funds, murdering fellow cadres, sexual escapades and abuse of female cadres, he slipped into the hands of the Singhalese armed forces to escape justice from the movement. This betrayal by Karuna impelled the armed forces to sideline the peace process, break the truce that prevailed by virtue of the CFA and embark afresh on violent activities shattering the peaceful atmosphere that existed in the country. To make good the opportunity, when the armed forces threatened Karuna under duress for his past acts against them, he pledged to damage the reputation of the LTTE and pursue his vendetta against it until it is crushed and on this assurance he was spared by the armed forces on the philosophy that one’s enemy’s enemy is one’s friend.
