Finally, EU wakes Up!!

It took a very sad loss of a great diplomat & greater individual to convince the European Union that LTTE is basically a terrorist organization. The killing of Sri Lankan foreign minister Lakshman Kadiragamar, who actively campaigned against the atrocities of LTTE has pushed EU to impose a travel ban on LTTE delegates.

To quote EU declaration " The European Union hereby declares its condemnation of the continuing use of violence and terrorism by the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The pursuit of political goals by such totally unacceptable methods only serves to damage the LTTE's standing and credibility as a negotiating partner and gravely endangers the Peace Process so much desired by the people of Sri Lanka.The European Union repeats its condemnation of the shocking murder of Foreign Minister Lakshman Kadirgamar and of so many others in Sri Lanka in recent weeks. "

It is a great victory for the Sri Lankan government because this will force LTTE to rethink their strategies. They have been killing & violating the so called Cease fire agreement with impunity because no one raised any concerns other than Sri Lankan government. Specially Mr, Kadiragamar. Norwgiens has been covering up all the wrong doings of LTTE while trying to put blame on our Army. Now the Norwegian government has been changed & there is a strong possibility of EU formally listing LTTE as a terrorist organization, which is the actual fact.

While accepting that there are several major problems for Tamils in Nothern & Eastern part of Sri Lanka it does not justify the killing of innocents all over the country or repressing democracy in those areas. LTTE never wanted to have a democratic solution for these issues. They want a separate country for themselves, without any other political party. They want dictatorship over Tamils & Muslims in those areas.

Fortunately world is slowly accepting the truth. LTTE is a terrorists organization. They should be forced to lay down weapons and come to a political agreement with Sri Lankan government & other Tamil parties. They are not the sole representative of Tamil peolpe in Sri Lanka. Actually they are not any kind of representative of Tamils. They are terrorists who will kill anyone opposed to their views . If they keep refusing political solutions they should be destroyed by whatever the way necessary.

Bill Gates, Still @ Top

Co-founder and chairman of software behemoth Microsoft Bill Gates is the worlds wealthiest man according to Forbes 400. The List is for amricans, but it is safe to assume he is the wealthiest of the world by quite a distance. Infact the other Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen is the 3rd behind Warren Buffet & Microsoft chief executive Steven Ballmer is 11th. Not bad for a single company, huh ?

Dropping the Ashes

The legend is when Herchelle Gibbs droped the catch of Steve Waugh he was told by Waugh that he "dropped the worldcup". It seems that Shane Warne has just dropped the Ashes cup when he failed to cling in to a simple catch by Kevin Pietersen. Peitersen went to score a big hundred & blasted every bowler to all parts of the ground. Although Warne did his best to rectify his mistake by bowling magnificeintly, it was not to be.

Englishmen have finally got their hands on the Ashes cup after 16 years and 29 days. Australian team was below par for the whole series & most of the players are entering their twilight of cricketing career. Warne, Mcgrath, Heyden, Gillespie & even Ponting. They are facing what West Indies team faced when the likes of Viv Richards, Greenidge, Heynes, Marshal retired. They have to rebuild the team & they should do it soon. They have a very talented youngsters like Clarke, Lee, Tait to build upon. It's just a matter of when & how to do it.

And while in the subject of Cricket, Sri Lanka is facing Bangladesh in a 2 test series & Bangladesh is performing their usual act of collapsing spectacularly. They were doing well before the lunch, but after that Rangana Herath & Muralitharan ran through their middle & lower order. Match is on the way to be finished within 3-4 days & actually this is becoming very boring & tedious. It is not good for Cricket as a game aspiring for global recognition to have this kind of lopsided natches. But be assured that ICC will not be doing anything meanfull to rectify these issues.

Get Fired from the Job....& Win !!

This is a strange strange world. A computer engineer-Jim Garrison, who lost his job because he ate two pieces of pepperoni pizza has won the first prize of an Internet contest that collected stories about outrageous firings.

He was fired because he ate two of the six pieces of pepperoni pizza left over from a company meeting. But unfortunately several other employees had planed to take the leftover pizza home with them. When they discoverd that Jim had eaten part of it, the employees reported Garrison to management, ultimately leading to his firing last November -- a month after he ate the food.

Now he has won the first prize - a free Caribbean cruise for his misfortune. Anyway what kind of bloody idiots would make complain about a co worker to the management because he ate their pizza ????
