Finally after what seems an unending age of indecision and prevaricating about the real issues relevant to the LTTE and National Security, Foreign Minister Tyronne Fernando has emphasized a reality which has needed India's imposing presence to ferret out and long witheld by the UNF who seeme to be emerging from its state of inertia and has declared its confidences towards dispelling apprehensions about confronting the LTTE and bravo to that with many thanks to India from the Sinhala Nation which now stands assured of substantial support from India towards the preservation of Sovereignity and Territorial Integrity !
Indeed ' The LTTE must get the message' as the headline in the Hindustan Times has highlighted. Following an interview with the Foreign Minister accompanying the Prime minister to India on a official visit indicating what has been a foregone conclusion for sometime now that India will not sit by and permit the LTTE to gain any foothold within Sri Lanka which will threaten her Sovereignity and Territorial Integrity as the implications of such a disastrous eventuality would have long term effects on the entire region of South Asia and hence India's stance to protect, oppose and probably help destroy any actions leading to a division of Sri Lanka follows a natural order where the Sinhala Nation applauds and commends India's support as the Foreign Minister has emphasized.
In his interview with the Indian newsmedia Mr. Fernando is quoted
as saying said "the LTTE must stick to the path of finding a
federal solution within a united Sri Lanka or face international wrath.
If the LTTE made demands with the intention of dividing the country,
it could plunge the country back into a war. This time, in the context
of 9/11, the International Community will come down heavily on them,"
end quote where the reference to 9/11 implicitly refers to a non tolerance
of any terrorist activity within Sri Lanka which perhaps needs to
be put into perspective as LTTE attrocities continue in measured ways
in the North and North east of Sri Lanka! and the concept of Federalism
cannot miguidedly promote or incorporate pseudo administrations, policing,
justice systems and financial institutions within the parameters of
a Sovereign Sri Lanka bearing in mind that almost all Global Federal
Systems are linked to Provincial Governance centred and administered
overall at federal level albeit the degree of tolerable autonomy not
to be confused with cessession!
India's role in this instance simplifies the path to peace within
Sri Lanka as she vehemently and relentlessly pursues LTTE Leader in
hiding Velupillai Pirapaharan whose apprehension and indictment would
pave the way towards a real peace while overseeing the Asian Region
as Super Power protector against terrorism in boosting the efforts
of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces where the only option available to
the LTTE would be to come clean from their terrorist image and merge
into mainstream Sri Lankan society in all sincerity!
The Foreign Minister's statement in collaboration with the Indian Government's mood to protect regional Interests from the LTTE as well as other foreign domination ( a secondary aspect of noteworth consideration!) has to be a precursor to the ultimate reality that Sri Lanka will stand intact for generations to come as the only threat to her existence is presented through the continued activities of the LTTE as terrorists in an intimidatory stance which in fact needs to be repelled in the best interests and posterity of the Sri Lankan people.
The theatrics and pretences of the LTTE thus far, transparent and shallow in presentation has done little to convince the Authorities a title which now also incorporates India and the sooner the LTTE align with reality rather than hang onto false hopes (also a pointer to their global supportives!) and show a genuine willingness to contribute towards the real peace through non aggressive means while shedding their image completely, the better it will be towards a commencement of a right step into the future for all concerned !
