And in any case I do not wish him to be slain in this evil mood. He was great once, of a Noble kind that we should not dare to raise our hands against. He is fallen, and his cure is beyond us.

Aftermath of the Sarath Fonseka arrest showed the sheer nudity of what is supposed to be political movements in Sri Lanka.

I respected Sarath Fonseka as the fearless General who played a very important part of winning the war. For this matter alone, I’m sorry about his current fate. In certain instances, the government could have paid him some respect for his past.

So Sarath Fonseka is arrested.

Those who went on all sorts of apologia for the Fonseka-Mangala-JVP-TNA-UNP-SLMC dirty election alliance are now crying about the loss of democrasy.

This author doesn’t think that government was very reasonable or tactical in arresting Sarath Fonseka. Fonseka was a loser, and a political tar baby with UNP (quite rightly) washing their hands off the alliance and showed signs of going back to basics. Which was a good thing. Those who were left with Fonseka were JVP/Mangala/Tiran Alles and the likes, who wanted MR out just because they hated him and just because they had no future with him. Those had no political acceptance, let alone popularity. With Fonseka’s repeated demonstrations of what kind of a ‘politician’ he is, it would have been a matter of time that the ‘rest of the alliance’ ends up in embarrasment.

ෆ්‍රොයිඩ් ට අනුව, සමහර විට මිනිස්සු තමාට පිලි ගැනීමට තිත්ත ඇත්ත, මොන තරම් සාධක ඇතිව වුවත් ප්‍රතික්ෂේප කරති. මෙය මනෝවිද්‍යාවේ සිංහලෙන් හැඳින්වෙන්නේ කෙසේදැයි මම නොදනිමි. ප්‍රතික්ෂේපය හෝ පිළිකෙව්ව යන්න වෙනත් ඕනෑම වචනයක් තරමට සුදුසු වනු ඇත.

Denial is a defense mechanism postulated by Sigmund Freud, in which a person is faced with a fact that is too uncomfortable to accept and rejects it instead, insisting that it is not true despite what may be overwhelming evidence.

In the English I know, democracy means people electing their representatives to govern them. Such an exercise was just finished in SL; people voted for a president, and there was a rather high voter turn out that was even commended by the Unites States, elections were largely peaceful, and Mahinda Rajapakse was re-elected with a clear majority that would rule out any winning due to malpractices and vote rigging. That is, at least for a realistic observer who hopes that ideally there should not be any malpractices, but not suffering from amnesiato think that this isn’t the only election conducted in Sri Lanka with more than zero malpractices. This writer accepts that there have been malpractices, but this isn’t the first time that there were any in Sri Lanka. Taboo Subjects’ this lament makes one wonder if there really are people who are born yesterday.

A comment in Voice in Colombo pointed out a lot of nice things about the favourite president (NOT) of us all, Chandrika Kumaratunga. I thought of setting the record straight and wrote a reply, but posting failed for several times, so I thought (and considering the interest of the subject) I’ll post my full reply here.

>>> CBK had Ranil as the opponent. Mahinda is having Fonseka.

Fonseka’s only claim is that he won the war. Anyone with a grain of brain knows that it’s the political leadership that should get major credit/blame for finishing the war facing all domestic/foreign pressure and managing the political stability. SF is now allied with a group of people some of which ridiculed war and some who were openly in the side of the LTTE. And some who “did not take side” thinking bargaining between “Sinhalese” GoSL and “tamil” LTTE will leave them with a bigger piece of benefits. (There are similar people with MR, but they have at least for record denounced their old ways. TNA doesn’t STILL admit that LTTE was a bloody terrorist group and it was wrong to support them. UNP doesn’t still admit that it was wrong to insult SF as being unsuitable for Salvasion army or famous kilinochchi/medavacchi talk. Mangala doesn’t still admit that it was wrong to use “Arakshaka Vimasuma”counter propaganda to war) It is not about who SF WAS. It’s about who SF represents today.

>>> CBK was at war at the time of election and tigers had an attempt at her life.

CBK went to war when everything fucked up and even then, used Mangala to break the courage of the forces through anti-war campaigns. She also sacrificed soldiers lives for useless political shows. She used war as excuse for fucking up the economy all the while hoarding money with corrupt deals.

Bravo Ranil. This time, you were more honest than the average UNPer and closet UNPers who don Wickramabahu etc skins.

Or were you? There are only three possibilities. Ranil is:

  • either undermining Fonseka campaign (as we expected), because he’s only second to Mahinda Rajapaksa in not wanting to see Fonseka wins.
  • or thinking that he can have double talk and say whatever in front of Tamils, thinking it won’t be reported back to SL. His earlier interview with PTI was similar. And this is the guy who went to north and called Mahinda “poda” and described him as a “hero of Sinhalese”.
  • The whole SF camp thinks that they can have double talk to cheat both Tamils and Sinhalese.

In an interview to Global Tamil Vision, UNP Leader Ranil Wickramasinghe claimed that “once the government gave the order, the service commanders have to go ahead and execute it”.

රජයට එරෙහිව ඇති දූෂන චෝදනා සහිත ඊමේල් මේ දින වල සංසරණය වෙයි. මේ, එම චෝදනා වලින් සමහරක් පිලිබඳව සී. ඒ. චන්ද්‍රප්‍රේම විසින් මහ බැංකු අධිපති අජිත් නිවාඩ් කබ්රාල් මහතා සමග කළ සාකච්ඡාවක් දිවයිනේ සහ දි අයිලන්ඩ් පුවත්පත් වල පළ විය. මේ එහි උපුටා දැක්වීමකි; ඇතැම් යතුරු ලියන දෝෂ දි අයිලන්ඩ් පුවත් පතේ පිටපතට අනුව නිවැරදි කරන ලදී.

කබ්රාල්  මහතා ගේ දත්ත නිවැරදි නම් (එසේ නොවීමට හේතුවක් ඇතැයි මට නොසිතෙන්නේ බොහොමයක් මඩ නිර්නාමිකව කිසිම වගකීමකින් තොරව බෙදා හැරෙන බැවිනි) ආණ්ඩුවට එරෙහිව එල්ල වල ඊනියා දූෂන චෝදනා බහුතරය බොරු හෝ අතිශයෝක්තීන් ය. තත්ත්වය කබ්රාල් කියන තරන් ම හොඳ නැති වුවත්, අඩු ගණනේ ඔහු කියන දෙයින් බාගයක් ඇත්ත නම් එයිනුදු පෙනෙන්නේ එල්ල වන තරම් දූෂන චෝදනා සත්‍ය නොවන බවයි.
