    Karunanidhi's amazing defense of the LTTE and Prabhakaran

    In an interview to NDTV, Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Karunanidhi said that he didn't consider Prabhakaran, his friend, as a terrorist.

    In fact, he so completely approves of the LTTE and Prabhakaran's acts of terror that:

    • He considers that some of the people in Prabhakaran's group are terrorists. He reckons that doesn't make Prabhakaran a terrorist or the LTTE a terrorist organization and Prabhakaran cannot be held responsible for those in his group that are terrorists
    • He has had only one difference of opinion with Prabhakaran, and that was over Prabhakaran declaring that a hypothetical Tamil Eelam would have a dictatorial government
    Presumably, if Prabhakaran couldn't be considered a terrorist if a few of his roommates were grooming a few 10-year olds as suicide bombers or blowing up Indian prime ministers, he admires a leader who has so totally lost control over his organization.

    As the head of the DMK, an ally of the Congress(I), and as the chief minister of the state, was Karunanidhi expressing his own personal opinions? Even so, how can the Congress(I) now ally with him considering it had withdrawn support to IK Gujral's government in 1997 on the basis of the Jain Commission report indicting the DMK for tacitly supporting the LTTE.

    Like I noted 5 years ago before the previous Lok Sabha election
    It does seem like Rajiv Gandhi's death was too long ago to matter. Is that true even for Sonia Gandhi?
