War in the name of Elections

April 28, 2008

The Poltical Colomn and Defence Colomn of the Sunday Times couldn’t have been more clearer about the battles that raged last week.

It was all a show. One big happy media campaign for the Eastern Election that went terribly wrong. The deaths of all those brave soldiers, the fool-hardy offensive which didn’t include air or naval assistance and the patriotic announcements of an up-coming forward offensive…… I mean really? Who in their right minds (other than a politically fucked up bunch of patriotic assholes trying to win some cheap votes) would call up and publisize plans of a major attack before even thinking of an attack?

It must all seem lilke a bad dream to Keheliya mama who thinks we’re idiotic enough to believe that the LTTE “started it”.

Well I guess most of us will continue to be idiots in the future. So no matter.

    The sad thing is this isn’t the first time that such an offensive was planned for political agenda and failed.As long as the army does the planning we can end this war.
