You suck. Both by being a terrorist, and at being a terrorist.
It’s kinda odd that ‘heroes day’ falls on Prabhakaran’s birthday. What with them being dead and him being alive. The whole thing is just kinda tragic in that they did pretty much die in vain. I mean, if they’re looking down they must see that everyone they knew’s lives are tangibly shittier as a result of their labors. I’d always thought martyrs would like to die for something, rather than, say, nothing. But I think Uncle P’s last sentence pretty much sums it up. “Let us all make a firm and determined resolution to follow fully the path of our heroes, who, in pursuit of our aspiration for justice and freedom, sacrificed themselves and have become a part of the history of our land and our people.” Soooo, all Tamils should try to follow the path of dead Tamils. I think he’s literally asking everyone to die and become ‘history’. I mean, he could say let’s half-follow the path of the heroes, or say thanks and follow some other path that leads to a future, like, one where we’re not all dead. But he doesn’t. Inspiring.
It goes without saying that Uncle P has hung around way too long and totally fucking sucks at his job. I mean, maybe he was a supercool terrorist once, but that shit is passed and he A) now sucks at being a terrorist and B) hasn’t improved his peoples lives one bit. He’s like Arafat or something, some fucking irritating historical footnote that you have to live with in the present. There’s this horrible loop that failed revolutionaries and rock stars enter where they’re not interesting anymore, but they still won’t leave. It’s like this purgatory that we all have to live in, populated by Michael Jackson and Robert Mugabe and Uncle P until we can clear off the cruft of that century and just move on. This heroes speech is the same shit as for fucking ever ago except he timed it pretty bad and no one gives a fuck anymore.
The main jist that I could get is that he’s saying the Sinhalese are useless and appealing to the international community – especially the Indians – for support. Which would have sorta made sense what with the Tamil Nadu protests and stuff, but he happened to release this message on a day when Bombay is on motherfucking fire. And if he wasn’t the guy who killed Rajiv Gandhi in a terrorist attack. People forget a lot, but that was a pretty damn stupid move and has pretty much precludes the LTTE from asking India for shit, and today probably wasn’t the best day to ask. Prabhakaran is just lying when he says
At the same time, it may be noted that during the long history of our struggle, we have not conducted any act of aggression against any member state of the international community.
They killed Rajiv Gandhi. They also attacked a Pakistani rep here. And that’s just what I remember. The best day to blow smoke up India’s ass is probably not the day when said ass is literally on fire.
Oh man I am so bored of this old man.
