(November 16, Colombo, Sri Lanka Guardian) Norway has issued a report before the LLRC and what is clear is that the Scandinavian country tries to hide the involvement of the UK, the US and other European countries in the so-called peace process. Norwegians could have waited for the LLRC report as they have not gained anything special by trying to beat the latter. The involvement of Norway is clear and what they want to hide is their attempt to establish an Eelam in the Northern and Eastern Provinces of the country. The so-called confederation that the Norwegians were after was nothing but two states and we are reminded of the Apex bodies that had been proposed in the course of “peace discussions”.
Solheim thought that Sri Lanka was his kitchen and used to visit the country too often. However, the million Krone question is why Norway decided to get involved in the Sri Lankan “peace process”. There were some who thought that Norway was interested in our oil but we always felt that Norway was only a puppet that had some experience in dividing countries, and the UK and the US were making use of Norway’s ability in “unmaking nations” to use a terminology in vogue during the hay days of “peace activities”.
It is very likely that the Norwegians decided to issue the report at this juncture at the insistence of English who probably wants to humiliate the LLRC. The US is supporting its former colonial master though the big power has nothing much to gain by establishing Eelam. The so-called superpower does not need to establish another country in order to do business (exploitation) and the pundits would be groping in the dark without learning any lessons on the way the colonial powers work towards the betterment of their cultures and races.
We cannot forget the role played by the US pretending to be a neutral country. All countries other than probably Japan in the so-called peace process were keen to help the Northern and Eastern parts of Sri Lanka to secede.
The US and the US used Norwegians to bully Sri Lanka and so-called aid was promised only if the government of Sri Lanka was willing to agree to conditions laid down by the LTTE. The terrorists were only marking time. Since the death of the terrorist leader, Norway has had no role to play and the UK has now openly taken over the leadership of the anti-Sri Lankan crusade. They will never learn any lessons for the reason that they think that there is nobody in the world to teach them lessons and they have not given up their domination in world affairs.
It is English who still support the so called Tamil Diaspora, the INGOs, NGOs and others operating in Sri Lanka and also the TNA. It is true that TNA was the LTTE proxy in the Parliament, but it is historically the cat’s paw of the English.
It is unfortunate that the TNA supported by the western powers who give them appointment generously is going round the mulberry bush. It has objected to various schemes that the government has initiated to uplift the wellbeing of the Tamils and still thinks in terms of Tamil areas and Thimpu conditions which the armed forces eliminated once and for all on the 19th of May 2009. It was a political decision as all military decisions, whether humanitarian or not, are political. The TNA with the help of the western powers led by England wants the government to enter into talks with it to discuss issues that have been solved by the armed forces. The victory of the armed forces nullified all the pacts between the government and the ITKA (Illankai Thamil Arasu Kadchchi – Lanka Tamil State Party established by Chelvanayakam) and also the Indo Lanka Pact and the Thirteenth Amendment. Why should the government after the military win enter into discussions with the TNA? As a former student of mine said would the LTTE enter into any discussions with the government had they won their armed terrorist struggle against the Sinhala people and the government? The LTTE would have established Eelam with the support of England and the other western powers, and the government would have been left in the abyss. The leaders of the TNA would have joined the government of Prabhakaran and would not have agitated for any talks between the LTTE and the government.
It is no secret that the new Libyan government is not interested in talks with the supporters of Gadafi and no western power has stepped into initiate such discussions. Why should history take a different path when the LTTE that was inspired, financed and in general supported by Norway and the other western powers lead by England lost at their own game.
