Tiger confessions and intentional ‘blindness’ of the West

TamilNet and other like minded web-sites are replete with harrowing stories, some authored by the Tigers themselves, of starvation among Tamil Civilians in the `Safe Zone’ to whom the Government has been supplying food and drugs. What is significant in these horror stories is that no one, not even the Tigers, say that a single Tiger is starving. If there is any truth in these stories, that can only be if the Tigers are robbing the Tamil Civilians of the food and drugs sent to them for their own purposes, thereby forcing those Civilians to starve.

Of course the Western Countries including the wholly discredited Norway, will not see this or any of it. They appear to have blinded themselves to these self-evident facts by the acts of hooliganism being committed in their capitals by the hordes of rowdies among the Tamil Diaspora shouting "genocide" at the drop of a hat and mouthing wholly false and hypocritical `concerns’ for the fate of the Tamil Civilians in the `Safe Zone’.

They refuse to see that if our Forces were committing genocide, it is unthinkable that the supposed victims of genocide would flee in their thousands into the arms of our Forces rather than away from our Forces into the arms of the Tigers.

They refuse to see that if the purported `concerns’ of these rowdies were in any way genuine, they must necessarily have raised like `concerns’ about the atrocities, including the regular mass scale kidnapping of little children, that were committed by the Tigers on Tamil Civilians for years on end, and that their deafening and continuous silence on these subjects proves that they are nothing but some despicable hangers on of the Tiger Terrorists making a last ditch attempt to save their masters and perpetuate terrorism in Sri Lanka.

They refuse to see that the experience of the last two unilateral ceasefires by the Government have proved beyond doubt that the Tigers will never allow the Tamil Civilians to seek refuge in Government controlled parts of the Country and that no ceasefire of any duration will serve to free those Civilians from the Tigers.

They refuse to see that the only way in which those Civilians can be saved; that the only way the terrorism in Sri Lanka can be ended; and that the only way in which peace can be restored is by killing or capturing the remnants of the Tigers by a military operation.

They refuse to see that by their continual interference in our affairs and carping ill-informed criticism of the conduct of our military operations, they are only giving aid, comfort and encouragement to the Tiger Terrorists.

They refuse to see that the Tigers would have been wiped out 22 years ago but for Indian interference in 1987, and that the current tragedy of Sri Lanka is a direct result of that unforgivable act of foreign interference.

How is it that the supposedly all powerful Western Countries who have the arrogance to style themselves the "International Community" are so afraid of the rowdies among their Tamil residents committing acts of unadulterated hooliganism in their capitals?
