Media opinion urges Philippines to follow genocidal Sri Lanka

[TamilNet, Sunday, 6 November 2011 13:11 No Comment]

Philippines should follow Sri Lanka’s model in getting Chinese assistance and annihilate the Moro National Liberation Front (MILF) fighting for the nation of Muslims in Philippines, urges an Outlook column appeared in Philippine Daily Inquirer, Thursday. A similar outlook in Burma’s military government against the Karen nationalists has been pointed out in many media reports after the genocidal war against the nation of Eezham Tamils in the island of Sri Lanka. The US and India, by setting the stage, by finishing a national war to genocidal end and by continue sitting on political and criminal justice, have inspired a host of rogue States to follow the genocidal path, but ironically the ill-gotten gains of the ‘inspiration’ goes to China, commented a political science academic in the Tamil diaspora.

Saying “If you want peace, prepare for war” the Philippine Daily Inquirer columnist Rigoberto Tiglao points out, “What isn’t widely known though is that the Sri Lankan army won against the Tamils with China’s massive assistance, amounting to $1 billion in military and financial aid annually from 2005 to 2009, allowing it to increase its military budget by 40 percent and its army’s size by 70 percent.” “Too bad that President Aquino hasn’t exactly warmed up to China for us to request military aid from that emerging superpower, what with his saber-rattling over the Spratleys issue and his government’s bungling that resulted in the deaths of eight Chinese tourists,” the columnist argues in favour of even sacrificing the national interests of Philippines in the South China Sea in exchange for the genocidal passion of annihilating the nation of his siblings.

Exactly the model followed and is being followed by Mahinda Rajapaksa by not conceding sovereignty of the nation of Eezham Tamils but losing it to every X, Y and Z.

The Inquirer Opinion columnist admires Rajapaksa for ‘wiping out’ the Tamil Tigers in an ‘all-out war’ “despite the international hue and cry against the government’s offensive by peace advocates and human rights organizations.”

The columnist is wrong. There was no hue and cry until the war was over. It was genocide without witness. The West and India looked after the media and the organizations. Philippines may need them too and may need the skill to later blackmail them by showing the China card, if it wants to follow the Rajapaksa Path.

After the war, the commander of the occupying SL military in Jaffna, Maj. Gen. Mahinda Hathurusinghe, who was presiding over the structural genocide of Eezham Tamils, was awarded Guci Peace Prize in Philippines. The SL Army paraded the ‘award’ as Asian Nobel Peace Prize.

Burma was the first country Mahinda Rajapaksa chose to visit with a large entourage, immediately after the war.

Over the course of centuries the West has learnt to largely sort out its national questions and has grown up. To lead the human civilization it should develop a paradigm to help the other parts of the world to deliver justice to national questions wherever the question is chronic. By facilitating genocide and annihilation of nations no imperialism will be ultimately successful. Sri Lanka and independence of Eezham Tamils is a paradigm setting case in proving credibility for world leadership, the diaspora academic commented.
