This is an abuse of state run media by government. State owned Rupavahini, ITN TV channels and SLBC heavily engaging in slinging mud and publishing evil false reports against Sarath Fonseka. These State medias are properties of people of srilanka. Not private properties of government Ministers or President Mahinda. They abuse srilankans money collected as tax.
Srilankans even blue blooded SLFP supporters are not accept such a crudeness and abuse by State run medias. They should understand that they exhibit such a wild behavior against a world renowned War Hero who committed the life to save our country from bloody terrorists, LTTE.
In addition Sate run Medias such as Rupavahini, ITN, SLBC and Lake House are the free source of advertising for president mahinda Rajapaksha and his beloved son Namal rajapaksha. Namal Rajapaksh'a Tharunyata Hetak organisation greatly engaging in the canvasing of president father.
Finally we should say that people are not anymore accept the government behavior against a War Hero. People of Srilanka kindly asks from government to stop the crude behavior of State owned media and allow people to take fair decisions on each presidential candidate.

After a long time break we begun to update our blog again with the recent development stories of Srilanka and mainly srilanka politics. Why politics so important?
Politics is inevitably important for most people despite even in the absence of elections and polls.
However the situation has changed in the srilanka. Srilankans now forwarding towards a major poll. Actually it is the main poll in srilankan politics, which is the Presidential Election. Presidential Election was declared by existing president Mahinda rajapaksha before two weeks ago, despite of the fact that he has the full legal power to act as the executive president for next two years.
The new and most talking political face of the srilanka that is going to present to the presidential polls is General Sarath Fonseka. Sarath Fonseka was the head of the Srilanka ARMY who lead the ARMY towards victory by destroying LTTE terrorists and it's leaders from Srilankan soil.
The attempt taken by General Sarath Fonseka and his followers during the times of bloody wars between LTTE and Srilanka government is really great. ARMY wouldn't won the war if there were no Sarath Fonseka and his courage to win. Political leadership during that times provide great support in order to take courage decisions.
Right after the war President Mahinda Rajapaksha made few adjustments to the ARMY and other security forces. As a consequence General Sarath Fonseka and NAVY and SL Air Force heads were retired and new leader appointed.
After being silent for few months President Mahinda unofficially declared his wish to held a presidential election. No one knows the underlying reasons for such a decision. Government saying the reason behind the fact is 'people asked for a presidential election'. But opposition parties who now joined hands with Sarath Fonseka said that 'President Mahinda knows that he won't win in an election held after two years, so he decided to held the polls little time after the Win of the War.
Now all are prepared for the next presidential polls. Two main presidential candidates are current President Mahinda Rajapaksha and Retired ARMY leader Gen. Sarath Fonseka. Who will win the Presidential War ? No one could tell it before the polls. President says he somehow win the polls and Also Sarath Fonseka and opposition said that they have already won the election. OK we will see who wins the election.

You may also know about what is Facebook and Google.
next, what is Friendfeed and what it can do ?
In simple terms Friendfeed is an aggregater of all of your social networking, blog, and other RSS updates. So that people can have all their RSS and other social networking like Facebook, Youtube, Twitter updates in one place.
And also people can subscribes to others updates and news.
So why Facebook bought Friendfeed ?
One key reason is to become a real time search engine rather than Google's regular search.
another may be Facebook wanted to expand it's services over other social networks.
Also they need to became the leader in community networking.
How it affects to Twiiter ?
Twitter is considered as the leader in real time news updates.
With Twitter people can post what just happenning here and there and others can search these updates.Freindfeed is also has a similar feature which people can do real time updates and searches like twitter.
previously Facebook wanted to bought Twitter but the deal did not continue as Twitter is not for sale at that time.
So we can come to an conclusion that Facebook wants to develop a real time search engine that is similar to Twitter. Hence it may affects the Twitter. On the other hand currently people messed up with Google's regular search and they needs to have a real time searches. Friendfeed will do that with challenging to google.

Obama statement on Iran :
Yesterday, June20 obama made a statement regarding ongoing conflicts in Iran. In his statement Obama urges Iranian President to stop the violence against Protesters.
"The Iranian government must understand that the world is watching. We mourn each and every innocent life that is lost. We call on the Iranian government to stop all violent and unjust actions against its own people. The universal rights to assembly and free speech must be respected, and the United States stands with all who seek to exercise those rights.
As I said in Cairo, suppressing ideas never succeeds in making them go away. The Iranian people will ultimately judge the actions of their own government. If the Iranian government seeks the respect of the international community, it must respect the dignity of its own people and govern through consent, not coercion.
Martin Luther King once said - "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends toward justice." I believe that. The international community believes that. And right now, we are bearing witness to the Iranian peoples’ belief in that truth, and we will continue to bear witness.
For some reason I keep picturing Ronald Reagan speaking about the freedom seekers in Iran, somehow I think he would sound a lot less mushy than President Obama. All he has called for here is freedom of assembly, not freedom to self-govern. That said this is a step in the right direction."
Iran government Yesterday said that they are going to recount the 10% of "ballot boxes.”

UK LTTE supported Tamils demonstrations for last 1 1/2 months caused to pull almost 8 million sterling pounds, said Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Paul Stephenson.
Demonstration caused to police force was extraordinarily stretched. "we have to provide such a level of resources that it is reducing policing on the streets of London" he added.

Srilanka's successful Winning over the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), have made a huge painful back hit to tiger sympathizers all over the world. LTTE sympathizers now attempts to come back in to light by spreading bogus news on the internet.
The latest incident is, the Times Online (UK) reported that they have found evidences of killing of more than 20,000 tamils in the last few days of the final battle against LTTE in Srilanka.
The title of the 02 reports of Times Online were "The hidden massacre: Sri Lanka’s final offensive against Tamil Tigers" : Read the report
and second : "Times photographs expose Sri Lanka’s lie on civilian deaths at beach" Read the report
Those two reports claimed that aerial photographs, unofficial documents, witness accounts and expert testimony present a clear evidence of an atrocity that comes close to matching Srebrenica, Darfur and other massacres of civilians.
Times Online Further says "With the world’s media and aid organisations kept well away from the fighting, the army launched a fierce barrage that began at the end of April and lasted about three weeks. The offensive ended Sri Lanka’s 26-year civil war with the Tamil Tigers, but innocent civilians paid the price."
They says that they have obtained UN's confidential documents which says "nearly 7,000 civilian deaths in the no-fire zone up to the end of April, with an average of 1,000 civilians killed each day until May 19, the day after Velupillai Prabhakaran, the leader of the Tamil Tigers, was killed."
However top UN officials today said they have not published such documents to public and they don't thinks that the existing of such documents of the UN. Times Online's whole story is based on the two pictures taken at a helicopter, which shows the destruction of the flimsy refugee camp and a more orderly military cemetery, believed to be for hundreds of rebel fighters. So what we clearly understands here is Times Online have taken in to account the deaths of LTTE tiger cadres as civilians deaths so that increase the total.
Here is another quote from Times Online Report about massacre "the arrangement of the army and rebel firing positions and the narrowness of the no-fire zone made it unlikely that Tiger mortar fire or artillery caused a significant number of deaths. “It looks more likely that the firing position has been located by the Sri Lankan Army and it has then been targeted with air-burst and ground-impact mortars,”
Just look at the above time's quaote and what do you conclude ?
A fairly biased report and clear attempt to blame the Srilankan government and it's ARMY.
With an unsuccessful effort to providing a fake picture about the issue to the world.

Countries who were supported the Srilanka including China, India, Russia, Indonesia, Philippines, Cuba, Iran, Myanmar, Pakistan, South Africa, and other African countries. The emphasis here is that votes are mostly received from Developing Nations, Political Analyzers says Developing Nations no more act in Prejudice over high power developed nations and this is a good move to demolish the power of US and it's sympathizers on international organisations and committees.
Disaster Management and Human Rights Minister Mahinda Samarasinghe says that "This reflects that the international community is behind Sri Lanka in its endeavour to rebuild the nation and to provide our citizens with equal opportunities”.
The UN human rights council called on Tuesday for an international inquiry to determine if Sri Lankan government forces and Tamil rebels committed war crimes in the last burst of their conflict and Sri Lanka should ensure the full access to displaced people in camps located north.
But in an unusual move, Sri Lanka itself submitted a resolution stressing its sovereign right to act without outside interference, which then Human Rights Council approved.
Human Rights Watch
The "Human Rights Watch" is deeply disappointed with the UNHRC decision of praising Srilanka's resolution rather than opposing it.

BBC reports in past years have led many criticisms within Srilanka and around the world. Srilankans considers BBC as another part of LTTE terrorism, as their fake and wrathful reports about Srilankan crisis. What we need to say is BBC openly supporting and accepting brutal LTTE terrorism and attempting to make fake picture of the international community over Srilanka government. We have clear evidence that the BBC's news regarding Srilanka conflicts mainly based on the LTTE's official web site 'tamilnet.com' and other pro LTTE media networks around the world. BBC and 'tamilnet' reports are exactly same to each other. Sources for the most BBC reports regarding Srilanka conflicts are getting from the pro LTTE groups in Lodon. The question is why BBC deliberately opposing to Srilanka government and Srilankan community. As results of BBC's fake and wrathful reports, Srilanka have lost potential International aids and grants which would used to regain the life of collapsed Srilankan people. In past few weeks Srilankan government rescued more than 190,000 tamil civilians trapped by LTTE as hostages. LTTE using civilians as a shield to protect from SRIlanka ARMY attacks. However to BBC who crying for LTTE it is just a report containing few text raws, on the other hand BBC can emphasis very small incidents to accuse the Srilankan government and people by making reports spreads over many pages with filthy and fake contents. On 01st of May BBC reported that Srilanka government still shelling to LTTE areas, by displaying some UV pictures taken from UNSAT. Read the original article of BBC. However pictures revealed that those marks from shelling happened in few months ago and there is no evidence that they are within the No-Fire zone or evenly within the Srilanka. BBC's reports about srilanka mostly taken from BBC's Srilankan correspondent 'Anbarasan Ethirajan', who represents the Tamils and LTTE. Few hours ago BBC again reported that 'Sri Lankan army has killed 91 people people and 87 injured by shelling to No-Fire Zone.' However reuters reported the same incidence as "A pro-rebel website accused Sri Lanka's military of killing 64 people on Saturday by shelling a makeshift hospital inside the last scrap of land held by the Tamil Tiger guerrillas.The military denied the report.

Government now permitted the international journalists to enter the No-Fire zone, and none of them saying that they have heard any sheling by Srilankan ARMY, including BBC correspondent 'Charles Haviland' What we understand all these incidences is BBC with other pro LTTE media network uses their full attempt to beat the Srilankan government and people by providing fake and distorted content. LTTE has reached their end and Srilanka says they can destroy LTTE within 30 minutes if there's no any civilians in the LTTE zone. We all know that LTTE has stronger media network around the world based on London (IBC). They all now began the works to spread fake content regarding Srilanka conflict around the world. BBC now using their full effort to search for evidences that supports accusing to Srilanka government.

Srilanka Had not denied the VISA to Swedish Foreign Minister Mr Bildt.
Srilanka foreign ministry officials says that they can not afford too many top officials at this time.
"At no instance did the Sri Lanka Government deny entry to Minister Bildt. In fact, an invitation had been extended by Foreign Minister Rohitha Bogollagama, to his Swedish counterpart to visit Sri Lanka in early May," the Ministry statement said.
"Some think they can land up at our airport and expect a red carpet treatment. We are not a colony and neither a bankrupt Third World country."
"We invited the French foreign minister and then the British Foreign minister wanted to join him. We said OK. Then the Swedish minister also wanted to jump in on that bandwagon and we said no," said the official.
"The Swedish minister also wanted to jump on that bandwagon and we said no," the official said.
Mr Bildt told the BBC: "They have said I am not welcome at this particular period of time - they were saying that they can't handle too many people.
Sri Lanka's Foreign Ministry said Bildt had not made a formal application for a visa and his plan to visit the island had not been discussed when the joint visits of French and British ministers were considered.

Srilankan Government announced today that they have decided to end SL ARMY's Combat operations against LTTE terrorists.
"Our security forces have been instructed to end the use of heavy caliber guns, combat aircraft and aerial weapons which could cause civilian causalities." Defense Ministry has stated.
However Srilankan government's security missions on rescuing Tamil people trapped by LTTE has not ended. We are continuing all our humanitarian operations in the No-Fire Zone.
The defence ministry later clarified that there was no ceasefire and blamed “media illusionists” of twisting the government announcement as if to mean that military operations against the LTTE had been called off.
Mr Karunanidhi took an indefinite fast demanding ceasefire in Sri Lanka in the morning but called it off after six hours once the Island government announced that combat operations have concluded.
"Rather than taking tangible steps to rush relief to thousands of hapless Tamils in Sri Lanka, Congress and DMK are indulging in political theatrics," BJP spokesperson Balbir Punj said.
New Delhi: Describing Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M Karunanidhi's fast demanding ceasefire in Sri Lanka as a "political stunt", BJP on Monday said the need of the hour was to take tangible steps to solve the crisis involving Tamil civilians.
He said this was merely a "political stunt" and instead the Indian government should ensure the safety of the Tamil civilians who are trapped in the conflict zone.
Apr 26, 2009
Gotabhaya Rajapakse today has announced that Srilanka rejected the LTTE's appeal for a ceasefire. Further said that there is no need for any ceasefire at this crucial stage on destroying LTTE.
"It must be a joke," Rajapakse told in response to the Tigers' ceasefire, which the rebels said would allow international aid agencies into the conflict zone to help civilians."What is the need for a ceasefire when they are running away? They should first lay down arms, surrender and let the people go," Rajapakse added.
We believes that this is not a declared ceasefire by LTTE, but appealing for a time period for regroup and rearm in the name of protection of civillians.
The Tigers controlled a fifth of the island in late 2006 but are now penned into a coastal area measuring just 10 square kilometres (four square miles).Srilankan Soldiers captured another village on the edge of the Tigers' territory and freed about 500 people held hostage, the government said on Sunday.
So far more than 150,000 civilians have arrived to the Government controlled areas within past few days.
However the UN , United states and other international oraganizations provide fake estimates on damages to civilians by accusing the Srilankan government.

Libyan leader Muammar Gadaffi has announced that he will take immediate and maximum steps to grant 500$ million worth loan that was promised by Libyan leader, during the President Mahinda Rajapaksa's visit to Libya on early April.
Gadaffi has revealed this during a special telephone conversation held with President Rajapaksa last night. A 500$ million amount of loan is much worth to the Srilankan Government at this time. Because Srilanka would make more concern on welfare of the IDP's in North and East, Also this amount can be used to finance the running cost of world's largest Cabinet.
At the telephone conversation Libyan leader has promised that he will visit the Srilanka soon after he got a chance. Gadaffi also congratulated the President on recent successes achieved by Sri Lankan Government in defeating LTTE terrorism.

This information has revealed by surrendered LTTE's former spokesman Daya Master on 22 april to the Srilanka ARMY.
However a naval blockade was put around northern Mullaittivu close to the No-Fire zone where LTTE cadres still had access to thesea.
"Most of the LTTE leaders are keen on escaping the country and surrender to the Srilankan ARMY. But LTTE leader Prabakaran not allowing them to do so. "
Apr 23, 2009
The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE) is in its death rattle. It was decisively defeated by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces weeks ago, but a handful of its leadership headed by Prabhakaran has cynically and cruelly prolonged the agony of the Tamil civilians by using them as a buffer and human-shield in order to delay the re-establishment of the writ of the Sri Lankan Government in a miniscule piece of territory (about 20 sq.kms), which has been declared by the Government as a no-fire zone to avoid collateral casualties among the civilians still under the control of the LTTE and to enable them to escape from the clutches of the LTTE.
2. Prabhakaran is a leader with a split personality. During the 26 years he has dominated the Tamil landscape in Sri Lanka, he had shown a remarkable organizing capacity and an ability to motivate his followers to perform virtual miracles. His motivating his cadres to acquire a capability for action by air and sea would go down in the history of insurgency and terrorism as indicating an organizing capability of a high order. The LTTE under his leadership managed to bring almost the entire Tamil-inhabited territory in the Northern and Eastern Provinces under its control. The determined manner in which the LTTE fought against the Indian-Peace Keeping Force (IPKF) in the late 1980s and frustrated its efforts to defeat it spoke highly of its capabilities for a conventional warfare.
3.If Prabhakaran had the activities of the LTTE confined to conventional warfare and developed the LTTE as a purely insurgent force, which targeted only the armed forces and not innocent civilians, he would have acquired greater support from the international community for the Tamil cause. The rational side of his personality as illustrated by his organizing capabilities had to constantly contend with a highly irrational side, which drove him to simultaneously take to terrorism of a shockingly brutal kind.
4. The targeted killings by the LTTE of many Sri Lankan Tamil leaders, who were perceived by Prabhakaran as possible impediments to his rise as the unquestioned leader of the Tamil community, and its brutal assassination of Rajiv Gandhi in May 1991 were the outcome of the irrational side of his personality. No other Indian leader had done more to help the Sri Lankan Tamil cause than Indira Gandhi and Rajiv Gandhi. Only a sickly and sickening irrational mind could have ordered the assassination of Rajiv Gandhi and Laxman Kadirgamar, a highly-respected Tamil leader, who was a senior adviser on foreign policy to former President Chandrika Kumaratunge. The assassination of Rajiv Gandhi on Prabhakaran’s orders shocked Indian public opinion----including public opinion in Tamil Nadu--- and weakened Indian support for the Tamil cause. The assassination of Kadirgamar shocked the Western public opinion and led to the declaration of the LTTE as a terrorist organization by the Western world, thereby denying the last vestiges of Western support for the Tamil cause.
5.As the LTTE faced one defeat after another during the last three years from the Sri Lankan Armed Forces---initially in the Eastern Province and finally in the Northern Province---- the irrational side of Prabhakaran’s personality erased his rational side. His shocking use of the Tamil civilians in order to delay the final end of the counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism campaign undertaken by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces is driven by this irrational streak in him, which now dominates his personality.
6. The prolonged agony of the Sri Lankan Tamils caused by the final bout of Prabhakaran’s irrationality and loss of lucidity in thinking has to be ended. The Sri Lankan Armed Forces, which have shown patience till now and deliberately slowed down their operations, cannot be faulted if they have come to the conclusion that the time has come to liberate the no-fire zone too from the clutches of the LTTE by undertaking limited operations with small arms and ammunition even at the risk of some collateral casualties to the civilians.
7. The desperate attempt of Prabhakaran to use the civilians to protect himself from the advancing Sri Lankan Army can be attributed to the total loss of lucidity in his thinking and his consequent inability to face the bitter truth that he and his organization have been defeated decisively by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces and that there is no chance of their staging a come-back. The Requiem for the LTTE could be written without fears of going wrong, should the LTTE stage a come-back as it had done on occasions in the past. It has been defeated beyond recovery. His conventional as well as terrorist capabilities are in shatters. Earlier conventional wisdom that small groups of the LTTE might still be able to keep indulging in sporadic acts of terrorism in different parts of Sri Lanks needs re-consideration. His desperate delaying action at the cost of immense suffering to the Tamils, whose cause he claims to espouse, is meant to give him an opportunity to seek safe sanctuary either in Tamil Nadu or elsewhere from where he could try to re-start his fight against the Sri Lankan Armed Forces. It is in the common interest of India and Sri Lanka that Prabhakaran is finally able to make peace with his Maker by either being killed by the Armed Forces or by taking his own life. A defeated Prabhakaran, if left alive in India or elsewhere, would not be a threat, but could be a nuisance for both the countries.
8. After the final death of the LTTE, which is expected any day, what is the future of the Sri Lankan Tamil cause? Would a Requiem for the LTTE also mean a Requiem for the Sri Lankan Tamil cause? Hopefully not. It is in India’s interest that the LTTE as a terrorist organization is destroyed once and for all, but it is not in India’s interest that the Sri Lankan Government and Armed Forces proceed from the destruction of the LTTE to the destruction of the Tamil aspirations for greater political and economic rights in their traditional homeland and for greater human dignity.
9. Let us not forget that ever since our independence in 1947, the Bengalis of the then East Pakistan, the Balochs and Sindhis of Pakistan and the Tamils of Sri Lanka have been India’s natural allies. It was this reality which persuaded Indira Gandhi to assist the Bengalis of the then East Pakistan to achieve their independence. Even though successive Governments in New Delhi refrained from supporting the causes of the Sindhis and the Balochs, Indian public opinion sympathized and continues to sympathise with their cause. It was sympathy for the Sri Lankan Tamil cause at New Delhi when Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister and in Tamil Nadu, which induced India to take up their cause in the 1980s.
10.There is no reason why India should not pride itself and seek to be the paramount power of the region. To emerge and remain as the paramount power, we need natural allies in the region around us. We should not let the legitimate aspirations of our natural allies---whether they be the Sindhis and Balochs of Pakistan or the Sri Lankan Tamils--- be crushed by a brutal regime--- whether in Islamabad or in Colombo.
11. Since 1947, the Balochs rose twice in revolt in favour of independence for their homeland. On both occasions, they were defeated by the Pakistani Armed Forces as decisively as the LTTE by the Sri Lankan Armed Forces. The Pakistani leadership brutally used the Air Force against the Balochs to crush their freedom struggle. Undaunted by this, the Baloch people, under a new leadership, rose in revolt for a third time two years ago and their third war of independence is still going on.
12. The remarkable victory of the Sri Lankan Armed Forces against the LTTE was partly due to their improved counter-insurgency and counter-terrorism capabilities made possible by Indian assistance in the form of training and sharing of intelligence and partly due to their emulating the Pakistani Armed forces in the brutal use of the Air Force against people whom they portray as their own. Just as the Balochs were defenceless against the brutal Pakistani air strikes, the Sri Lankan Tamils were defenceless against the Sri Lankan air strikes.
13. The US has used air strikes in Iraq and Afghanistan----but in foreign territory and against foreign nationals. Only three countries in the world have used air strikes in their own territory against their own people---- the Pakistanis against the Balochs, the Russians against the Chechens and the Sri Lankans against the Tamils.
14. President Mahinda Rajapakse has repeatedly promised that once the LTTE is defeated, he would be generous in meeting the political aspirations of the Tamils. He gives the impression of being a sincere man, but will the Sinhalese Army with its head bloated by its success against the LTTE allow him to do so? The indicators till now are not encouraging. Many Sri Lankan officers might have been trained in India, but their mindset and their attitude towards the minorities have more in common with those of their Pakistani counterparts than with those of their Indian counterparts. Therein lies the danger that after winning the war against the LTTE, the Government, strongly influenced by a victorious army, might trey to impose a dictated peace on the Tamils.
15. If the angry Tamils once again look up to India, there is no reason why we should not reciprocate provided a new leadership emerges in the Tamil community and it has drawn the right lessons from the brutalities of the LTTE.
16. The LTTE is deservedly dying, but long live the Tamil cause. (22-4-2009)
