I like your comments as it gives us idea of tamil separists....how they exagerrate real situation...how they try to mudsling the country as a whole....how they motivate the other communities against our country....It is realy worth...@Redbulls wrote:@timeout wrote:Faleomavaega has no vote in the house; he's just a "feel good" congressman from the American commonwealth and not from a state. There are many others just like him without any real weight or clout in the Capitol Hill, just to make people from those tiny islands feel that they are part of the US.
But where it really matters, both in the house and in the senate, power brokers feel that the resolution is the correct move. Some of the high ranking members in the senate foreign relations committee are asking for a clear change in policy towards Sri Lanka and make Sri Lanka accountable. Whether anybody likes it or not, US will tighten the noose until they get what they want. Some can strongly disagree with that strategy, and might ask for a level playing field. But Sri Lanka needs to understand power and clout are not given, it is taken. If they need a level playing field, they need to create it and earn it. Instead of blaming the US for courting Tamil demands, Sri Lanka needs to engage the power players positively, work-out a compromise, keep good of the promises they made and build a strong case for Sri Lanka with the US politicians. They need to open an ear in the White House and with the powerful senators.
Diaspora Tamils courting the powerful US political establishment while Sri Lankan leaders courting the increasingly dwindling number of dictators will gain nothing for Sri Lanka, only more road blocks. This is clearly apparent in Geneva today. Either Sri Lankan leaders need to go back to diplomacy 101 or agonizingly wait for the air to cutoff.
Thanks, but you are wasting the time with these guys who are already biased.
Those who speak for their benifit these guys, will carry him or them on their heads with out realising (or pretending).
Those who speak different to their view they will mudsling or impeach or find a small point to imprison or worst come to worst send the white van.
