sore loser chronicles 1: 'brave' sarath fonseka was 'under siege' in a hotel [updated]

sarath fonseka was under 'siege' and 'house arrest' at a luxury hotel

you see, he did not make violent threats against his opponents to be carried out immediately after victory. if he mistakenly did, that was mere rhetoric. of course.

also his supporters had not booked lots of rooms for 400 ex military personnel on election night. so you see government placing very polite military around the hotel for security is an 'overreaction' instead of a prudent security measure. fonseka and his friends were not planning on anything. oh yes.

it was a very typical 'siege'

his friends could go in and out freely, except for a standard issue security check. lot of other ppl including tourists got on with their business, entertainment, and relaxation, at the same hotel at the same time. very definition of a 'siege' huh? very 'brave' of him to endure this.

he was under 'hotel' ... sorry 'house arrest' but he had total freedom of movement as military spokesman was saying from morning of 27th. sf 'bravely' said he did not want to go bc he fears assassination. no, not by security around the hotel, but by some unknown entity. as everyone knows, sf is so totally not given to making melodramatic statements. so this assassination threat and arrest must be true. totally!

sri lankans were inundated with sms texts to that effect. and much more. online sri lankans even got blog posts and twitter updates, plenty of them, from some of sf's/unp's /peacenik's/terrorist's loyal online propagandists. it must be true then.

finally, and this will bring complete conviction, he proved the truth of his words by leaving the hotel and going to his house totally unharmed and unbothered just hours after his press conferences where he uttered those 'brave' and 'noble' words!

oh i forgot to mention he freely scheduled, canceled, scheduled again, and finally held, press conferences for groups of reporters during the whole time he was 'under siege'. he also spoke to some individual reporters in private in person.

for a few who totally did not want to dramatize the whole thing and appear privileged, he spoke 'on the phone' even though they could easily have visited him if both wanted; 'election loser house arrested and under siege, tense situation, troops around, but great reporter i am, i interviewed him on the phone!' editors were told afterward, and news copy written to imply same. others merely omitted the 'on the phone' part.

meanwhile, rest of the country was celebrating or accepting with graceful resignation their candidates' massive victory or defeat announced by election commissioner in proper manner after a mostly peaceful election.

of course all that was not interesting compared to the 150% genuine 'siege' and 'house arrest'. as far as (esp western) reporters were concerned. you don't get your name to top of news websites, front page of newspapars, or perhaps 30sec on tv, by covering ppl eating kiribath in joy. you get that by writing words like 'seige' and 'house arrest'. same reason why they decided not to carry (spoil sport) government's denial of any 'siege' or 'house arrest'.

that is how 'totally unbiased' and 'totally non racist' western reporters covering sri lanka should behave;
ignore the millions of votes and legitimate authority, believe words of one man in a hotel.
that was a great victory for freedom of expression ! no doubt!

to be continued ...

btw stormcrow has written an excellent and serious post about after election shenanigans.

update after tinker777's comment below
among the 'totally true' sms sent by sf's/unp's /peacenik's/terrorist's propagandists was this. allegedly from sarath foneska's daughter, long tweeted here by terrorist parrot sanjana hattotuwa. who, as you can see added words 'unconfirmed' but still went on spreading it for the sake of 'brave' and 'besieged' fonseka family. not to mention sirasa empty of surrounding soldiers. will do anything for the 'cause' is sanjana's motto.

Let's hope the losers grow up and accept defeat instead of retreating to their little fantasy worlds in which SF 'won' as he was always going to, and milk and honey drips from Mangala's ass :-)

Wow, are the Fonsekas so fucking poverty stricken they couldn't actually call someone? Instead sending unconfirmed text messages. How interesting, since they decided to hole themselves up in one of the most expensive hotels in the city.

2010 ජනාධිපතිවරණය මේවන විට මහත් ආන්දෝලනාත්මක බව මැතිවරණ කොමසාරිස්වරයා විසින් විසින් කළ කථාවේදී පැහැදිලි විණි.

17 වන ආණ්ඩු ක්‍රමව්‍යවස්ථාවෙන් තමා වෙත පැවරී ඇති බලතල මත නිකුත් කළ මාධ්‍ය සදහා උපමාන කෙරෙහි රාජ්‍ය මාධ්‍ය දෙක සැලකිල්ලක් දැක්වූවේ නැහැ. පසුව මම බලධාරියෙක් පත් කළා නමුත් ඒ අනුවත් කටයුතු කළේ නැහැ. මාධ්‍ය ආයතන ප්‍රධානීන් හමුවී සිදුකළ සාකච්ඡාත් පළක් වුණේ නැහැ පසුව මට එම බලධාරියා ඉවති කරගැනීමට සිදු උනා.

ඇතැම් අවස්ථාවලදී නොයෙකුත් රජයේ ආයතන මැතිවරණයකදී නොකළයුතු දේ කිරීමට කටයුතු කළා.

සමහරු චෝදනා කළා මට අයිතිව තිබෙන්නේ ඡන්ද පෙට්ටි රැකගැනීමත්, ජන්ද ගණන් කරන එකත් විතරයි කියලා. නමුත් දැන් තිබෙන තත්වය යටතේ ඡන්ද පෙට්ටියවත් රැක ගන්න බැහැ. මේ තත්වය තුළ මම කටයුතු කළේ ඉතා අපහසුවෙන් සහ සිත් වේදනාවකින්.

මම ඕනෑ කමින් ඉල්ලා සිටිනවා මේ තත්වය මට පාලනය කරගන්න බැරි තත්වයකට දැන් පත්වෙලා තියනවා. ඒ වගේම මගේ වයස ඉක්මවා මම වසර 8ක් සේවය කර තිබෙන නිසා මාව නිදහස් කරන්න.

මේ ආතතිය තත්වයක් යටතේ මට කටයුතු කරන්න බැහැ. ඒක මට අහිතකරයි. මට කුමක් හෝ සිදු වුණාම විද දරාගන්න සිදුවන්නේ මටමයි.

ප්‍රාදේශීය නායකයන් අපිට බොහොම කරදර කළා. පුත්තලම, අනුරාධපුර, මහනුවර, මාතලේ, මාතර, බදු‍ල්ල, මොණරාගල, දිස්ත්‍රික්වල ගණන් කිරීමේ මධ්‍යස්ථානවලදී අපට කරදරකලා. චන්දයකදී නොවිය යුතු තවත් දේ සිදුවී තිබෙනවා. මෙය හොද ප්‍රවණතාවක් නොවෙයි. මේවා දිස්ත්‍රික් මට්ටමේ තේරීම්භාර නිලධාරීන්ට සහ සහකාර මැතිවරණ කොමසාරිස්වරුන්ට පාලනය කළ නොහැකි තත්වයක් උදා වුණා. ඔවුන්ටත් අසභ්‍ය වචනයෙන් බැණ වැදිලා සමහරවිට ගණන් කරන මධ්‍යස්ථානයෙන් එලවපු අවස්ථාවන් ද උදා වුණා.

need i say more, one simple question to all those who worship maharajathuma, why did he and his son spent millions of illgotten money? to serve the general public? forgot about helping humbug thota? what a shameless nation. I very well know this comment wouldn;t be published as the mulatiyana company had bought over many persons with tax payers money. what a shameless nation who is cheating whom? think be for your unfound bias.

This is for you, Mr, Levakanna the author

if you are man enough, post this, and reply, because you, yourself is paid by the robbed money we paid as taxes to the govt to utilize for masses, to benefit the general public.

And Mr. shameless, I have screen captured what I have commented to expose you as well, because I know you are nothing but a cheap no soul who live on other peoples illgotten funds

Adoh ponaya, don't jump around and leave comments everywhere (especially on RD's blog) just because your master won. Ponaya fuck you.

Some of you people are somewhat pathetic. MR won... so let's all be a bunch of dicks and clearly show the colours of the people who voted for him.

I question your rational and impartiality. Seems like a lot of MR support is also based on blind emotion which is equally as idiotic to blindly supporting SF.

I don't give a damn about the personalities of the two 'candidates'(MR was better) and why the better man should be in office.

You guys better be ready for what's coming. MR just might not deliver on all his promises and we'll see what you'll be saying at the end of his tenure. For the record I doubt Fonseka would really have done a better job but he may just have been checked by outside forces such as his campaign funders.

I don't really care who is in power as long as the necessary development is done to the country. Good Day.

pl link to your source since the election commissioner's comments published or broadcast over media ( all of them ) were different from yours ( and cocerned mainly with state media abuse with more detail )

foxhound :
kindly read my previous pre election posts to find rational realistic reasons as to why sri lankans ( including myself ) would and should support mr over sf.

and when criticizing ppl be specific instead of taking cover behind vague generalities ( such as your "MR support is also based on blind emotion")
