Post on the defencewire blog claims that one of India’s spy agencies – RAW (Research Analysis Wing) – has already put a plan in motion to continue the LTTE’s terror campaign. Supposedly by “rescuing” LTTE terrorist cult leader Velupillai Prabhakaran and a minion to plot terrorist acts in Sri Lanka from a safe haven. According to the post, Prabhakaran may have already run off.
It is the stuff of spy novels and conspiracy theory if it wasn’t for the fact that India incubated the LTTE before. The irony is that the LTTE killed the son and heir of the prime minister who offered them support. Of course irony and history are ignored in the darkness of back room geopolitical schemes. A sad and tiring thought. The prospect of the endless after chit chat in the males section of social gatherings is exhausting. Even if you don’t want to spare a thought for the suffering of generations yet to be born.
Of course it is easy to say you shouldn’t swallow what you read on the internet 😉 It has been a grinding week. Not as bad as dodging bullets in the Wani but I am surprised I managed to write anything at all. To some the question of in the title of this post is “obvious”. Yet so much of the “talk” is about what happened and who did what to whom. The tit for tat outrages. Very rarely is there anything coherent about the why. The 800 comments in the defencewire post will give you an idea as to the quality of the “discussion”.
Hence the questions and the hope that knowledgeable types might visit the comment box with coherence:
Why would India want to perpetuate terrorism in Sri Lanka?
Is a minor island like Sri Lanka such a threat to power brokers of global giant? – To feel insecure enough to clumsily get involved in prolonging death and suffering in a comparatively tiny island off its coast? What’s the point of it all – essentially: why?
