thanks

thanks for those items.

its good the UN Human Rights Chief continues to call for a war crimes inquiry, as at the google article in #3 above, but i don't like the spin that is in that article, nor others, which seems to pit 'the West' against Russia, China, India, and 'Islamic countries', implying 'the West' wants accountability vs. others who don't.  that's simplistic, seeing as a rabble article on the subject last week, which you've linked in the last thread, noted documentation of US military advisors months before [under Bush] helping the Sri Lankan state plan the assault on Tamils.

and the UN can only function as well as the 192 countries making it up.  people around the world need to create real democracy, and accountability.

from above: "we condemn the vandalism, Canada is a symbol of hope, peace and equality for millions around the world and we, Tamil Canadians, see this as an attack on these principles," said Canadian Tamil Congress leader and spokesman David Poopalapillai

"[U.S.] Deputy Assistant Secretary Scher said the US government was pleased that Sri Lanka had defeated the LTTE terrorists, and asked Ambassador Wickramasuriya to extend congratulations to the government and military of Sri Lanka": US Officials Congratulate Sri Lanka - www.srilankahcottawa.org

One doesn't know what to make of the statement of the CTC above. Surely he is aware that in all such matters Canada acts vis a vis the US as satan's little helper? Make no mistake, the position of Ottawa does not differ from that of Washington, despite the fervent hopes of Tamils or Canadians.

the article at #39 says Sri Lanka is exploring for oil with various int'l partners in waters that were offshore from Tamil lands.

this is probably one of the most disgusting and blatant slaughters for oil in recent years, along with Iraq, Afghanistan, and elsewhere.

There was/is speculation of another resource in the island other then oil (right in the one of the main domain of Tamil Eelam) that many countries would like to get a hold on specially India. Oil is another resource (mostly offshore from Tamil Eelam). Military/economic strategic importance of Trincomalee harbor is another big problem (the exact reason the Tigers crowned it as the capital of Tamil Eelam). The importance of the shipping lane is another problem that really has China worried (has to do with who will get the support of the Sinhalese as the shipping routes run mostly around the Sinhalese nation). As far as I know the Tigers were well aware of these and taken many actions to put it boldly that no one will have access to any of Tamil Eelam's natural resources as long as they are active (or until a Tamil government is able to take control of the resources).
