sarath fonseka's biggest political problem


i think this image/cartoon by lanakarising blog point to what will be general sarath fonseka's biggest problem if and when he tries to contest and win elections. and why he will lose.

sarath fonseka will be at the mercy of ppl pictured and their ilk. not exactly ppl who who did anything to free sri lanka from terrorism or stand up for human rights, democracy, justice, or freedom. in fact most of them were active appeasers and/or supporters of the tamil tiger terrorist pussies during the time they were killing us sri lankans. they also denigrated the effort to defeat terrorists. most of them are on record doing all that.

voters will know and will react appropriately.

-
juxtaposition and attempted conjunction of what general so far stood for, with its exact opposite on political stage, sure would make for some exceptional political cartoons.

here are some not so exceptional ideas of my own for cartoons.
  • general getting his hands smeared with blood of his own former soldiers while shaking hands with mano ganeshan
  • ranil wickremesinghe hand puppeteering the general from behind (hopefully this will not be censored ).
  • general dressed in red drag shouting inane marxist slogans with tilvin silva.

if general tries to win elections with support of ppl like those he will deserve derision and will lose.

on the other hand, he does not have an independent political organization of his own, purged of these jokers. it will take time create one from scratch or to take over unp and get rid of stinking baggage. that is why i expected him to take his time, but he seems to be in a hurry (though of course he has not confirmed he will run for office, as yet.)

too bad for him that old proverb "a bird in hand is worth two in the bush" is still valid.

Hicorp – British bourne – Nexsel are some of the companies registered under Danuana Tilakeratne who is Gen Fonseka’s son in law. Here are the facts you can easily find online .

Please go to

https://www.sooneraccess.state.ok.us/corp_inquiry/corp_inquiry-find.asp

This is the Oklahoma, USA business registration site.

Type the business name – search and you will find the truth!

BRITISH BORNEO DEFENCE

HICORP INTERNATIONAL INC.

Also You can find company registrations at ( Write to them)
http://www.sos.state.tx.us/corp/publicinfo.shtml

Danuna Thilakeratne started a new salon in kirulapana Sri lanka, Salon in Las Vegas - USA, Night Club in Holiday inn Sri Lanka, Beach hotel in Negambo Sri Lanka, Communication Company in London, Salon in Gall face hotel and invested millions of dollars in USA and Sri lankan stock market– Where did he get this money Mr Gen Fonseka?

While you get the President fund scholarship for your daughter to study in USA ( Which is available for poor people). While you upgraded your son-in-laws economic air line ticket to first class from our national carries sri lankan airlines without paying them( you did this for all your family members and their friends for more than 50 times during your commandership) – You still give official vehicle to your son-in-law with commandos guard to do business, you showed FAVOURISM to a Gen who does not even know how to sign a standing order ( Because you were screwing his wife), You granted SL Army intelligence money to political campaigns - you took away the privileges of your own officers who sacrificed their lives for the country – You must be ashamed of yourself to obtain extra money for your daughter through President fund while your son in law was making millions of dollars from arms and ammunition commissions?


You called some Politicians to get jobs and contracts to your family members?

You criticized other commanders and try to get credit for the war?

You took every advantage as a commander while taking away the powers and privileges from other officers.

Time for you to remove your uniform and show your true colors instead of stars!

AS A CHIEF OF DEFENCE STAFF CAN YOU CALL FOR AN INVESTIGATION OF HICORP AND HOW THEY MANAGED TO SECURE DEALS FROM ARMY NAVY, POLICE AND AIR FORCE BY PROVIDING FALASE DOCUMENTATION FOR BANK GURENTEE - EXPERIENCE – AND CREDIBILITY? CAN YOU ARREST LAKSHMAN WIJESEKARA AND RANDY DEHOEDT? CAN YOU EXPOSE THE TRUE COLORS OF YOUR LITTLE MILIOANRE SON-INLAW?

ALL YOU HAVE TO DO IS ORDER THE 3 FORCES COMANDERS TO INVESTIGATE – VERYFY THE DOCUMENTS SUBMITED BY HICORP AND ARREST LAKSHMAN WIJESEKARA (UNCLE OF DANUNA TILEKERATNE – YOUR SON IN LAW) AND THEN ARREST YOUR SON IN LAW BECAUSE HE IS THE ONE BEHID ALLOF THIS CORRUPTION!

CAN YOU DO IT?

ofcourse, I disagree.

i would ideally like Fonseka to join UNP. or he can run as an independent. no amount of political machinery can substitute for mass personal appeal.

people of srilanka may trust Fonseka as an individual. but if he starts a new political party and contests several years down the line, what is the guarantee that people in his new party will not the exact kind of crooks that may already be present in politics?

Fonseka shud ask people to trust his integrity and run on that appeal alone. And eventually if he becomes President, he will have to take all parties along. So whats wrong if JVP and TNA support him now. Its not as if he endorses all their ideological positions.

incidentally, I would like David Petreaus to join the Republican party and challenge Obama in 2012. Exactly the kind of scenario happening in Lanka now.

Gereal Fonseka must say WHY he is standing for election WHAT he wants to do and HOW he will govern. Enough with personal conflicts and disappointments.

thanks for the info
i would prefer you to substantiate all you say with sources and links.

why not create a blog of your own and publish them ?

=============
balaji:
thanks again for comment
i expected you to disagree. :-)

personal appeal is good but personal appeal alone did not win obama the white house . organization is a major factor in political campaigns .
fonseka cannot be independent and depend on unp and jvp organization. he will be smeared with their filth . and there is enough filth in those two to go around ..
-

"....what is the guarantee that people in his new party will not the exact kind of crooks that may already be present in politics?"
good question.
but if we cannot expect him to control his own new party made from scratch from contamination, why would we expect him to clean up the country from same ppl now ?
that is a question of his ability to remain independent . as such not related to time , if we expect he can't do it then, he cannot do it now .
on other hand he will probably win later even if he gets contaminated if he is in control of whatever he is leading . instead of being figurehead for thoroughly contaminated ppl as he is now .

-
if he does not embrace the ideological positions of jvp and tna he should forcefully make it clear and certainly not embrace them on political stage. same for peacenik side of unp ideology . above all he should show he in not their tool.
will be difficult to do when they are promoting him.. i don't think he will do it if he runs now, bc he will lose their support which he needs .

that is in fact his biggest problem

"I would like David Petreaus to join the Republican party and challenge Obama in 2012. Exactly the kind of scenario happening in Lanka now"

i too would prefer petreaus to oppose obama. but your analogy is false .
it will be true if petreaus is the democratic party candiade ( with support of acorn , code pink etc ). they oppsed his strategy in war. that is what unp, jvp and tna all did to fonseka when he was commander . some of the statement by unp concerning ltte terrorists are similar to extreme leftist political views in usa when they talk about response to terrorism.
-
problem with unp is that it is not a typical right of center party that you seem to believe it to be.
it is right of center in economic policy ( there is even doubt on that recently ) , but its almost loony left in defense and security . comparisons with other countries where right of centre is associated with free markets and strong defense and security policy is not valid here .

completely agree that he should articulate all that, instead of just saying he is pissed at mahinda

You are too grumpy. I don't mind an orgy session with you

The attempt to denigrate the image of General has commenced slowly but surely by government media and corruption cronies in the local blogsphere such as jathika chinthana pravahaya, Kasabappatha and sitting nut.

i don't know about others but did i say anything factually false here? i don't think so.
if anyone is going to denigrate the general it will be himself by associating and accepting support from ppl pictured and their ilk . his political enimies will make use of that fact .

and i will present the facts and make appropriate speculations based on them. such as "if general tries to win elections with support of ppl like those he will deserve derision and will lose."
if you disagree pl explain why he would/should not be an object of derision in that context ?

but i suppose your brain is not upto that ?

Here is my analysis, why the General's loss is inevitable.

Why General Sarath Fonseka cannot win

Being the HUGE conspiracy theorist I am , I most certainly smell a big rat with the general leading the opposition. This is USA trying to destabilise the country once more. They are not happy with our alliance with China and this is them trying to create an impression that Sri Lanka is going to be a military state etc. With Hilary being the secretary of state I very clearly see her hand and probably Sarath was threatened about his US citizenship etc.
He is not going to win so that is another story but clearly the general is not mad to take this type of a suicidal mission. There is a third party involved. The UNP is only the pawn in this.
