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 !."

30 April 2007  International Relations  in the Age of Empire

Shanghaied: Shanghai Cooperation Organization & the US -  Suzanne Nossel in the New Republic..

 "...the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) - has emerged as a potential rival to Western groups. Formed in June 2001 as a regional coalition between Russia, China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan, the group endeavors to become "a mature and confident regional force" focused on counter-terrorism, trade, and other economic policies. Its influence may ultimately extend far beyond its current member states... While the United States has chosen to stand aloof from bodies like the ICC and HRC, at the SCO the tables are turned: In 2006 the SCO denied America's request for observer status, though India, Pakistan, Mongolia, and Iran all got the nod the previous year. Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal have lined up to participate next. ..By fostering collaboration on the exploitation of the region's rich energy resources, the SCO could be in a position to ensure China's privileged access to oil and gas. Cambridge academic David Wall judged that its members' control over oil and gas reserves could make the SCO into an "OPEC with bombs."" more

Noam Chomsky -  Failed States "..Among the most elementary of moral truisms is the principle of universality: we must apply to ourselves the same standards we do to others, if not more stringent ones. It is a remarkable comment on Western intellectual culture that this principle is so often ignored and, if occasionally mentioned, condemned as outrageous... Reigning doctrines are often called a "double standard." The term is misleading. It is more accurate to describe them as a single standard... The single standard is so deeply entrenched that it is beyond awareness. Take "terror," the leading topic of the day. There is a straightforward single standard: their terror against us and our clients is the ultimate evil, while our terror against them does not exist�or, if it does, is entirely appropriate..." more

27 April 2007 Reflections

�Culture is the way people conduct themselves in an organization or in a community and the beliefs they hold and share. Culture is born of a need or cause which galvanises a group because of the intrinsic underpinning values which appeal to them personally...Culture is bought and not sold. People buy into culture when the leader �walks the talk'. If there is an alignment between what the leader says and what he or she does, people will embrace that change and it will create a momentum of its own..."  Satyendra Chelvendra, 10 February 2007 more

"'When I use a word,' Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, 'it means just what I choose it to mean, neither more nor less'.

For this reason, the United States has some leverage with him. However, if the perception of the United States as a direct supporter of Sri Lanka's armed forces against the LTTE persists, Prabhakaran's susceptibility to US influence will decrease or vanish completely..." together with comment by tamilnation.org  more

25 April 2007 Sri Lanka's War on Eelam Tamils - in the Shadow of a Ceasefire

Bloodbath looms in war-torn Sri Lanka says a Special Correspondent, in News Weekly  (for 60 years Australia's Independent News Magazine) -  "Sri Lanka's "dirty war" against its Tamil minority has surpassed the level of abuses seen in General Augusto Pinochet's Chile, and is now increasingly being compared with Pol Pot's murderous rule in Cambodia.In the last 15 months alone, more people have been killed by Sri Lanka's Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka (DSRSL) Government than were killed by Pinochet in the 17 years of Chile's "dirty war". .. The growing influence of China in Sri Lanka accords with what is happening in many countries around Australia. From the deep-water ports of Sri Lanka, communist Chinese naval power could one day straddle the Indian Ocean." more

22 April 2007 Sathyam Commentary

Amnesty, Cricket and the War in Sri Lanka - Nadesan Satyendra "..The current Amnesty Campaign slogan calling upon Sri Lanka to play by the rules is unfortunate. It is unfortunate not because it brings politics into sport. It is unfortunate because it suggests that the genocidal war in which Sri Lanka is engaged is a game and that all that needs to be done is to secure that the rules of the "game"  are observed. The armed conflict in the island of Sri Lanka is not a game. War is not cricket. It is bloody.  And Amnesty's call for umpires, borders on farce. Amnesty says "just as cricket flourishes through respect for its rules so all sides in Sri Lanka must respect the rules of armed conflict. Monitors are needed to act as an impartial watchdog in order to document and investigate the increasing number of abuses."  But where will these 'impartial watch dogs' come from so that 'just as cricket flourishes through respect for its rules' armed conflict may also 'flourish'?  .." more

  14 April 2007  Reflections - Hindu New Year

"...Nation building ... is not confined to national liberation movements, charismatic leaders and liberators, wars of national independence, and the struggle of national entities to emerge to independence from a position of relative powerlessness and subservience to a dominant power. Nations are as much cultural as political forms, and the creation of a unique high culture of world significance is often central to their legitimation." John Hutchinson, European Institute, London School of Economics and David Aberbach, Department of Jewish Studies, McGill University, Quebec, Canada in Nations & Nationalism, Volume 4, 1999)

"..மொழியும்கலையும், கலாசாரமும் வளம் பெற்று வளர்ச்சியும் உயர்ச்சியும் அடையும பொழுதே தேசிய இனக் கட்டமைப்பு இறுக்கம் பெறுகின்றது. பலம் பெறுகின்றது. மனித வாழ்வும் சமூக உறவுகளும் மேன்மை பெறுகின்றது. தேசிய நாகரிகம் உன்னதம் பெறுகின்றது.." Velupillai Pirabakaran

On Terrorism & Liberation - Nadesan Satyendra "...Do we not deliberately obfuscate when we conflate the two words 'terrorism' and 'violence'? ... The Cuban revolution was violent but it was not terrorism. The war against Hitler was violent but it was not terrorism...What are the circumstances in which a people ruled by an alien people may lawfully resort to arms to resist that alien rule and secure freedom? Or is it that there are no circumstances in which a people ruled by an alien people may lawfully resort to arms to liberate themselves? And if all resort to violence to secure political ends is not terrorism then, by all means let us address the question:  what is terrorism?  " more

The whole bullying tactics of the GOSL and its allies show their view of the world as one-dimensional, as limited as the flat world before Galileo....This is a world where there is no past and no future, no lessons of history and no foreseeing things to come. Whatever exists now will exist forever...The world of a Stalin, who once asked contemptuously: "How many divisions has the Pope?".. The human craving for freedom is invincible, and so is the struggle of oppressed nations for liberation. To ignore this is not realism, it is blindness.

5 April 2007 Reflections

"...In all regions of the world conflicts turn violent over the desire for full control by state governments, on the one hand, and claims to self-determination (in a broad sense) by peoples, minorities or other communities, on the other. Where governments recognise and respect the right to self-determination, a people can effectuate it in a peaceful manner. Where governments choose to use force to crush or prevent the movement, or where they attempt to impose assimilationist policies against the wishes of a people, this polarises demands and generally results in armed conflict. The Tamils, for example, were not seeking independence and were not using violence in the 1970s. The government response to further deny the Tamil people equal expression of their distinct identity led to armed confrontation and a war of secession..."
