So, I guess you gotta kill all these people now
This is from a comment Sanjana left. This letter was ‘sent out to several leading figures in civil society (and media activists)’. Ostensibly from the people who kidnapped the journalist Dharmeratnam Sivaram (Taraki) on Galle Road and shot him behind Parliament. I say again that they’re cowards. You cannot defend a motherland by killing its children. Oh, and who the fuck are you?
So you’re going to take this small country and cleanse it now? Is that our problem? The tsunami left too many people alive? I wish to God people would stop dividing this tiny slice of pie we’ve got and just get more pie. It’s there if you bastards could put the knife away and bake something.
In its fight with the USSR, America launched satellites, built the Internet, and made thousands of cliched movies. They pulled something positive out of that struggle. They didn’t win the Cold War cause they killed more communists and cleansed America internally. They won cause they had better cars, affordable housing, and washing machines. They won because of blenders and Buicks. If you really hate the Evil Empire next door, make this country better. If you think totalitarianism is wrong then encourage freedom. If you hate how the LTTE silences its opponents, then treat your enemies with compassion. If you would defend Sinhala Buddhism then meditate and follow the 8 precepts. Not that hard, the first one is ‘abstain from taking life’. If you want to improve the motherland why don’t you make some damn improvements?
THE ANNOUNCEMENT TO THE ENEMIES OF THE MOTHERLAND !
The attempt by the world imperialists, started in the far off past to take Sri Lanka under their command has not been given up despite the vigorous protest of the anti imperialist patriotic forces.
These infamous imperialist forces that are shuddering in the face of the revolutionary economic uprising of China, Malaysia, Thailand and India, have united themselves with the traitorous Wanni Tigers who are engaged in dividing this country under the guise of a national liberation struggle, taking the shelter of peace and are advancing step by step to set up a Tamil Ealam. For this purpose the Norwegian white Tigers and UNP green Tigers have got together and showing their dollar bags are building up a flock of Blue Tigers by deceiving the eunuchs in the United Peoples Freedom Alliance. And also a set of traitors in the guise of scholars, intellectuals and artists are acting as the directors of this heinous sin. The Tiger called Dharmaratnam Sivaram who call himself a journalist is only one among these enemies of the motherland, engaged in this traitorous conspiracy of destroying the motherland.
It is with a heart full of joy that we are informing the patriotic people of this country that we had to put an end on 28th April2005, at 11.20 p m, to the infamous traitorous operation he carried out, defacing and darkening the international face of Sri Lanka, with the help, encouragement and sponsorship of a sinful, traitorous herd, calling themselves mediamen, born of Sinhala parents. What the traitorous imperialist wanni Tigers –green –white –blue Tigers and those traitorous demons who have joined them licking their dollar bags should know from this is that we are looking at them- eyes wide open, day and night.
It is hereby informed with a strong sense of responsibility that all those who are doing harm to the motherland, while being nourished by the motherland, should be ready to become manure to the motherland very soon.

Predictably, TamilNet has the most comprehensive coverage. Mayadunne can lick my dollar bags.
