LET INDIA HAVE IT!
By Prof: Hudson McLean
When I suggested that Trincomalee should be handed over on a long lease to India, USA, Russia - Some laughed.
TANKS FARM - LEASE TEN TO INDIA! -Offer the rest by International Tender.-By
Prof. Hudson Mclean
Sri Lanka is definitely Not For Sale!
A week prior to the historic Press Conference of the Supreme Leader of a theoretical Tamil Eelam, when Honourable (should there be a "Right" preceding Hon: or not?) Velupillai Prabakaran made an absolute mince meat out of a cattle drive, a great opportunity, in front of the world press, I asked the following........
Who or What Is The REAL Motivator Behind The LTTE?- by Prof: Hudson McLean (The LankaWeb-04/04/02)
I received over a dozen emails, from readers saying that VP is THE Power as well as The Power Behind The Throne!
A terrorist, acclaimed as a top military strategist, could not get his words out of his mouth. Perhaps, his orders to the suicide brigade are disbursed by faxes, emails and smoke signals.
Then even the Nordic Monitors observed that the LTTE violated the terms of MoU by interfering with public transport. There was not a whimper from Ranil W.
When the Muslim leaders demanded and got a positive response from VP, an even an apology from Dr. Anton "Brains" Balasingham, did the Sinhala leaders speak out on behalf of the displaced Sinhala community?
Not a whimper from either the UNF or the PA!
Is this a sell out, simply to hang on to power?
Then I thought a gentle hint might help.
RANIL W. STAND UP AND BE COUNTED! YOUR ONE AND ONLY CHANCE.- By Prof: Hudson McLean (The LankaWeb-16/04/02)
Today Her Excellency, Ms Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunge, The President of Sri Lanka woke up and says,
warns Ranil against flirting with LTTE
One day in the not so distant future, whether the weather is brightened with Sun, Sea and Sex or just another cloudy full moon night, drenched with a thunderous South West monsoon shower, Sri Lankan history might read-;
When the poor Sinhala hath cried,
and, the epitaph beneath his portrait as a Prime Minister (twice), might read-;
The Portrait of a blinking idiot.
I repeat, The most sensible solution is NOT Military, NOT Diplomatic, BUT Commercial. Let the governments who are interested in Peace in the Asian Subcontinent, Put Their Money Where Their Mouth Is!
Get them to invest in the NE. Lease the Trincomalee harbour. Call the Singapore Economic Development Board and Lease out a few patches on a nominal rental, but specifically to labour intensive industries. Wait for the results. And laugh all the way to the bank. And in Peace!
And to those who try to get hold of the tale at the tail end, and laugh before even the joke has even started, please remember-;
One Who Laughs Last, Laughs Last!
May I humbly suggest, as a non citizen, to all those who love this beautiful Island of Sri Lanka, whether you are Sinhala, Tamil, Muslim, Burgher, Rich or Poor, or simply a tourist-;
Please do focus, jointly, together, on one important factor today - "Save Sri Lanka as a Sovereign State, undivided, without borders, for all to enjoy, this great little Paradise Under the Sun, for generations to come!"
