Silenced For Today

wither the bastards of ceylon, we will stand here today, silenced. for tomorrow you will answer for your atrocities.

you may try to silence the tigers. you may succeed. but you cant silence the Tamil spirit. we will seek peace and life, from where ever we are, we will seek the rights for a homeland for our nameless brothers and sisters from Lanka.

the sri lankan army and the sinhalese government are involved in ethnic cleansing. in the name of liberating the Tamil minority from the clutches of LTTE, many generations of Tamils from Lanka are killed and exterminated by pure political greed of the sinhalese government. the tigers, whom they portray as enemies and terrorist actually appear as saviors of the Tamil voices of Jaffna from the sure genocide that was started decades ago by the sinhalese government. today we see even the mighty tigers pushed to the brink. Who is left now to defend the Tamils in Lanka?

though the world is blinded today, from many genocides across the world, history will be our witness. peace will happen, and the masters of greed today will see their ideologies burn on the roads to the future.

lets stay united for world peace.

[disclaimer] i do not condone or support terrorist acts, at the same time, i wont stay silent watching genocide unfolding in front of our eyes. why ask us to shed tears for Gaza when the Tamils of Lanka and the souls of Darfur are murdered. what makes one dead body more precious than the other. speak out, for only this remains our last hope for positive outcome.

I welcome balanced, intelligent conversation and comments. everything else will be deleted, especially politically motivated, religiously fueled and racially 'polluted' comments.

I am politically motivated, religiously fueled and racially 'polluted'...

...i would like to hear the world over perpetrators of such crimes actually say those words; in a whisper at least, if not in loud ringing tones.

bro, sadly, i do not know the truth about the LTTE and Tamils and the Sinhalese. what is the history behind them all. so i shall refrain from saying anything much here. half truths and incomplete information are dangerous.

all i can do is pray for the souls of the innocent.

[nachi] that is why so many atrocities goes unnoticed, and thats why most from our generation chose to stay silent or ignore.

we start at the basics, war is bad. and this is a civil war. this wiki tells in detail of the Sri Lankan tamils: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sri_Lankan_Tamil

Tamils are the minority of Lanka. After Independence from the Brits, through some vague political moves, the majority Sinhalese government imposed laws that disfranchised and pushed the tamils away from mainstream policies and developments. its always the minorities of a country that get trashed for political ambitions.

and in the process of annihilation, and the self annihilation of the ensuing civil wars in Lanka, the innocent gets killed. its not much better than Gaza, and whats more painful is to digest the fact that the SLArmy not paying two hoots to what the international is saying and are bulldozing the Tamils.

why is it not favorable for anyone in this so called liberation is that the sinhalese (majority of the country) has traditionally hated the Tamils. and when now the LTTE wiped out, the riots, and one sided civil war will continue to wipe out the remaining Tamils out of the country.

all we can pray is for every citizen of earth to have freedom. and the toothless UN and the rest of the world right now are only paying lip service in asking the SLA to stop this war.

In 1411 Zheng He had intervened in an earlier war on the island [Sri Lanka], pitting Hindu Tamils from the north against two mutually hostile Sinhalese Buddhist realms in the center and south. Zheng was forced to act when one of the Buddhist rulers, a rebel chieftan, attacked a Ming shore party. In a stroke of military genius, the main body of Sri Lankan troops was lured into a fruitless assault on the fleet, leaving their capital open to easy conquest.

The episode marked the only significant overseas land battle ever fought by a Chinese imperial army. It so strengthened the legitimate king, Parakramabahu VI, that he went on to defeat the Tamils and govern Sri Lanka for 55 years, before the kingdom collapsed into warring divisions once more.

I have a great interest in history and yet wonder what it would be like for us to wake up one day and not remember our past differences and the things that divide us.

In this age we know so much about what is happening in other parts of the world and yet we are for the most part still powerless to change it.

I'll join your cry for world peace Ghosty.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …
