WHEN ‘THALAGOYA’ (IGUANA) BECOMES ‘KABARAGOYA’ (CROCODILE)

Ramanie de Zoysa from New Zealand

It was not that many moons ago when Karuna- the terrorist was the blood brother of the Wanni terrorists such as Thamilselvan and Balasingham fighting together for a ‘Thamil Statehood’ free from the so-called domination, colonisation, discrimination and even genocide of the Tamils by the Sinhalese. Within months the status quo has turned topsy turvey. Now, according to the only two executives within the Wanni hierarchy who are still standing upright, Thamilselvan and Balasingham, this very same Karuna and his entourage have now become the ‘Tamil auxiliaries’ or ‘paramilitaries’ of the SL government. Now the former ‘thalagoya’ is not palatable to the Wanni terrorists anymore; so they prefer to see him as a ‘kabaragoya’. According to them the SL government must now drop everything and disarm this ‘Tamil auxiliary’ force so that the Wanni terrorists can start killing the soldiers and civilians of Sri Lanka ‘in peace’! As far as peace agreements go, this particular ‘peace agreement’ concocted by our two-timing Nordic friends, must take the cake! Nowhere else has there been a ‘peace’ that meant ‘giving a free-hand to the terrorists’ and no other government has been subjected to suffer servitude to its terrorists to the extent it has happened in Sri Lanka under the present so-called ‘peace agreement’.

This comedy would have been hilarious enough to put Jerry Seinfeld out of business had it not been for the tragic context it is being played in. The hilarity lies in the fact that there is a vast number of seemingly intelligent, educated, adult politicians of Sri Lanka who are happily going along with this curious but deadly game played by a sadistic bunch of illiterate thugs from the Northern and Eastern jungles occupying territory that belong to the Sinhalese and Muslim civilians.

The last straw must surely be the latest SL government blunder of airlifting the wounded top brass of the Tiger Meenachchi Brigade into the heart of Colombo and providing them with not only top medical care but also top security. The Security Chief says that ‘we will not take any chances’! Against What? My suggestion is that the Security Chief should by all means have taken the greatest chance of his lifetime by letting these vermin kill each other to their hearts content. The President has also commissioned a judicial inquiry to find out who has hurt lovely Kuveni- (a name no doubt taken on to give credence to the LTTE’s re-written history of SL that the veddhah queen of Sri Lanka at the time of Prince Vijaya’s arrival was a Tamil!)

It is hard to believe that this is the same President who sacked the previous government for doing exactly what she is doing now! Her mandate from the people was to rout the previous regime as well as the MOU, de-merge the Northern and eastern provinces of Sri Lanka, flush the terrorists out and restore the country’s pride. Instead the President is closely following in the footsteps of the earlier administration. What the government needs to be reminded of is that the same voting public will choose another force to oust the present day government if it continues to show the same callous disregard for the aspirations of the masses. JVP seems to be well on the path to provide that alternative force to the voting public, which will no doubt receive a resounding mandate to do so in the near future. My heartfelt gratitude goes to the JVP for the exemplary manner in which it has stood up for the dignity of the common man and his country in recent times!
