Is the World Ready for Prabhakaran's Death?

Warning: Speculation, Not Fact

31 March 2009

The Sri Lankan army has finally captured the last few square kilometres of jungle in Mullaitivu controlled by the LTTE. Vellupillai Prabhakaran, the all-powerful head of the LTTE, has been found dead in his bunker, pink froth around his lips, an empty potassium cyanide capsule on the floor near him. Dozens of surviving LTTE cadres have thrown down their weapons and melted into the civilian population that has been streaming out of the jungle, after having been kept hostage and used as human shields by the LTTE for many months. Some of the LTTE fighters who couldn’t take off their uniforms fast enough have been taken prisoner by the Sri Lankan army. A few die-hard LTTE men and women seem to have escaped from the dragnet with the intention of continuing their fight. It is believed that both Pottu Amman and Prabhakaran's eldest son Charles Anthony Seelan have survived, but it is not clear who will be the numero uno in the 'Prabhakaran-less' LTTE.

There is pandemonium among LTTE supporters in Sri Lankan Tamil enclaves in London, Toronto, Paris and various other parts of the world. Many Sri Lankan Tamils who had till then been coerced into making regular contributions to the LTTE’s coffers have stopped making those payments. Fighting has broken out among gangs of LTTE supporters for control of the many millions of dollars, pounds and euros stashed away in multiple bank accounts. More importantly, a tussle is going on for control of the many corner shops, petrol stations, motels and restaurants owned by LTTE front men all over the world.  Open street fights have broken out among LTTE supporters in places like East Ham in London, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis and Metro Gard du Nord in Paris and Scarborough in Toronto.

The scale and magnitude of the fighting and theft has taken western law enforcement agencies by surprise. Even though the crackdown on LTTE’s fund raising activities started some years ago following the branding of the LTTE as a terrorist group, and has picked up speed in recent times, western police forces have never been too keen to dig deep into the Sri Lankan Tamil community for fear of hurting cultural sentiments, though it’s well known that LTTE supporters within the Sri Lankan Tamil community have forced members of this community in the UK, France and elsewhere to donate money to the LTTE’s coffers. LTTE supporters have also been involved in various other money making scams.

31 December 2009

The Sri Lankan government is yet to make good its promise to devolve power. Even though Prabhakaran is no more, small groups of LTTE have continued to resist from their jungle hideouts.  Since the devolution of power is yet to take place, Sri Lankan Tamils continue to sympathise with the LTTE and its off shoots.

So far there have been three suicide attacks in Colombo and tourists continue to stay away from Sri Lanka.

30 June 2010

Shanmugalingam Sivashanker, also known as Pottu Amman, former head of the LTTE’s intelligence wing has broken off from the LTTE which is now led by Charles Anthony Seelan, Prabhakaran’s eldest son and formed his own group, which he said will be true to the ideals promoted by V. Prabhakaran. Pottu Amman has denounced Charles Anthony Seelan as a traitor who is not committed to Tamil Eelam and is misusing donations made by overseas Sri Lankan Tamils. There have been minor skirmishes between the two groups.

20 February 2011

Following intense pressure from various western countries and India, the Sri Lankan government agreed to convert itself to a federal system where Tamil dominated areas will have considerable autonomy. However, Tamils in the Eastern Province of Sri Lanka have demanded that the East be kept separate from the North since Tamils from Northern Sri Lanka ‘discriminate’ against Tamils from the East.  Colonel Karuna, the ex-LTTE leader from the Eastern Province, has threatened to take up arms once again if Tamils from the East are forced to be subservient to those from the North.

Back to the Present

I’m sure none of us would want to see the possibilities detailed above to materialise. It is not too late to take remedial action. Western law enforcement agencies ought to prepare themselves for the infighting that is bound to break out immediately if Prabhakaran were to die or be captured and the iron discipline he wields over the LTTE disappears. LTTE supporters in the west have accumulated vast amounts of money and control many businesses and properties. A detailed dossier of LTTE front men and front organisations and LTTE controlled businesses must be prepared. Any property of business or bank account that is derived from terrorism or terrorist activity can be confiscated by the government.  However, I would call upon the governments of Western European countries, the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Thailand and any other country where LTTE front men hold assets, to donate the proceeds of those properties for the rebuilding of Northern and Eastern Sri Lanka.

India and all western governments ought to insist that the devolution of power to Tamil dominated provinces of Sri Lanka take place immediately rather than later. Both financial aid and military assistance to the Sri Lankan government should be tied to such devolution of power.  If the Sri Lankan government fails to make good its promise in this respect, peace will continue to elude Sri Lanka.

I agree, who cares about Prabakharan. The threat to South Asia comes from Mohammed's followers. How are we going to deal with them is the real question? I think Sri Lanka has provided us with a method of elliminating terrorism. We should do the same to the muslims in India, Sri Lanka, and everywhere else, then only South Asia will be really safe.

We currently have a facist and racist government in Sri Lanka. The current government is as dangerous as Prabakaran. Unfortunately, the Sinhalease (including me) don't understand the immense difficult undergone by our Tamil brothers in the North. Unfortunately, we are still not sorry for what we did in 83. Unfortunately, most of us are not ready to give equal rights to the Tamils. Equal rights doesn't mean that they can live in Colombo. It means that they feel safe and secure as a Sri Lankan as I do.

Only God can save Sri Lanka.

K de Silva, he is either a Tamil LTTE supporter or a traitor. How can you say there are no equal rights, All the Top companies in SL has at least 1 tamil in there management. The top doctores in SL are Tamil. The best bowler in SL is Tamil. The top middle order batsmen Russel Arnold is Tamil. 80% of Tamils live with Sinhalese. What are you talking bout, 83 was a political stage. Not any god can save SL, its the good leaders can save SL. Plus they need to get rid of traitors like you.

Prabhakaran has no intention of dying for the cause. He values his own life far more than Eelam. Indeed, the only purpose of his Eelam fight was for him to have a kingdom where he could be king.

He will be caught alive, like the Kurd Ocalan was, and he will be incarcerated in the deepest darkest hole in Sri Lanka, after which he will recant and renounce the movement on TV. The Paper Tiger will be exposed and revealed as a fraud.

Like Ajmal Kasab, he will be shown whimpering apologetically on TV, his former gleeful arrogance transformed into pleading humility.

I don't think Sonia will do much to help him or his supporters, as she would mainly be interested in seeing him punished for taking the life of her beloved Rajiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiv.

Borrrrrinnnng.

Since we're speculating on possible futures, let's also imagine some alternate pasts:

After Lord Rajivachandra was killed by the Demon King of Lanka, the vengeful Sita fired the incompetent Manmohanuman, and took charge of the war against Demon King herself.
After successfully defeating and slaying the Demon King of Lanka, Sita Maino wanted to crown her son Rahul as yuvaraj. Unfortunately, Rahul's yuva did not make for a good raj.
Meantime DMK (Demons Missing their King) started raising a ruckus against Sita Maino, accusing her of corruption. They demanded that Sita undergo Agni Pariksha (trial by fire), as well as extensive financial auditing, to prove her purity.
Sita didn't care for the fire test, and she certainly wasn't going to submit to an audit.

So, on the fateful day of her test, Sita Maino made some quiet calls, and then discreetly hopped out on the first Garuda flight, which took her to Mother Bhoomi -- Italy.

THE END.

Tamils have more than enough rights in Sri Lanka. Tamils have the right to live in every corner of Sri Lanka while non-Tamils cannot do that because they are targeted and killed by Tamils for belonging to a different ethnic group. Hopefuly once the Tamil terorist force is liquidated non-Tamils will have the freedom to live in every corner of Sri Lanka.

Prabhakaran is a megalomaniac who keeps himself and his own children safe while sending other Tamil children to their death as cannon fodder. The sad thing is that many Tamils, especially the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora, fails to see how this man has destroyed their community from within.

Please think of what would happen, if LTTE wins.

Two countries would be formed. Sri Lanka for Sinhalas, where they would be ruled by a Sinhala baseliner, Mahinda. And there would be no more fear of life.

Tamil Eelam for Tamils under the rule of LTTE. After setting the initials for a nation. The LTTE would convert the country to a DEMOCRATIC one, as they would be obligated to do that by the World Tamil Community. Now Tamils have their own safe nation. The 1.3 Million Tamil Diaspora who were chased out of the country be the Sri Lankan government would return home. With their knowledge and wealth, they would rebuild the war torn nation.

Both nations now look towards their development. After some years they would form an island union and protect themselves and promote each other's growth.

At the request of India and Sri Lanka, Prabhakaran would be tried under the Laws of Tamil Eelam and many politicians in India and Sri Lanka would be in prison.

When the LTTE were all powerful and fully backed by the West and INGOs, with the massive pressure exerted by them, Sri Lanka did not implement a federal system, which as your wishful thinking shows, you know could then be used as a launching pad for a future independence bid.

In 2600 years since the founding of the nation, no foreign power has been able to carve it into pieces. It will NEVER happen, so get over it!

Your story is a pile of rubbish. Firstly, the coward Prabhakaran would never commit suicide. Secondly, there is almost no way that Charles Anthony and Pottu would be able to get out. The Sri Lankan military is very good at preventing such infiltration attempts now.

As you know damned well, there are no such things as Tamil "dominated" areas in Sri Lanka. If there are any such pockets, that is because of the ethnic cleansing of Sinhalas that has been carried out by Tamils from the time of the Colonialists and which continued to this day. Funnily enough, 60% of Tamils live in the South with everyone elese, and 39% of Colombo's population is Tamil. Do you expect Colombo to also be given up to the Tamils? Absurd!

Once this war is over, all Sinhalese should be allowed back into their homelands in the northern and eastern regions from which they were murdered and torturerd and ethnically cleansed out. And Tamil Sharia law in these regions must be removed so that all Sri Lankan citizens can live and buy land in the north, just as Tamils can do as they please in the South. All citizens must be equal in the post-war Sri Lanka.

With regards to aid and military assistance being conditional, why don't Tamils have a problem with their "marginalization" in India? The national and official language is Hindi, no Tamil can enter politics without learning Hindi, they are forced to be part of India rather than a separate state. Why don't you first demand "devolution" in the Tamil homeland before sticking your big nose in another country's affairs, another country, it must be said, that is far better than India for life expectancy, GDP per capita, education and healthcare and with lower crime. I think India should lead by example and give Tamil Nadu (the Tamil Homeland state) and Kerala Independence. Put your money where your mouth is!

If you idiots have billions upon billions of dollars to spend on nuclear missiles and Migs and air craft carriers, why don't you feed your poor and build decent houses for the hundreds of millions of slumdogs living in your country.

Finally, Sri Lanka doesn't need a flood of terrorist supporting thugs from the West to come back. They can stay there and carve out an Eelam in Toronto, Sydney and London.

To imagine things of above nature, none can stop that you feel great. But it is our moral responsibility to put a full stop for the killings of innocent tamils and Sinhala armed forces. None of us are going to extend any financial assistance to any of those who has been sverely affected or injured in the war inspite, they are Sinhalese, Tamils or other.The culture of this sacred cuntry has changed to a situation where the battlefield informations are conveyed on ITN like Cricket Match commentries. We have not parted as Sinhalese, Tamils, Muslims and Christians but have forgotten that we are Lankans.One external common intruder would change the whole scenario.May be a Tsunami, A USA invasion or some natural disaster that is yet to be named. This external force is not going to leave any one for their religion, cast or creed but tarnish.Tarnish because they have life. when DEATH comes up to your throat level, your location or identity never matters. Either you live in Temple trees or in slums. Nothing can stop the process. We are all the sons of this mother lanka you inferior human creatures.Remember, every action has a reaction. The July 83 gave us a prolonging war and a massive loss of life. We haven't still learnt. Call me a Pro-LTTE or what ever you wish, but truth would emerge one day. Everything what you have given to this life would return back to you before your death.Let us be united and understand the real issue here other than propagating this war to justification.

Regardless whether it is Sinhalese, Tamil, or Muslim, any armed uprising against the people of Sri Lanka will be countered with legitimate powers by the government of Sri Lanka. Use of lethal force through the defence forces is one such option the Sri Lankan government has. The only way one can change the government is by an election as per the constitution of Sri Lanka. This is why the GOSL, despite its flaws, can't be equated to the LTTE. When people get tired of the government they can throw it out by the power of the ballot. Tamils had an oppportunity to use their ballot to vote in a party that was interested in dialogue with the LTTE at the last presidential elections but they threw their vote away.

Currently Sri Lanka is facing one of the deadliest terrorist force the world, the only terror group that has assasinated two heads of state - the LTTE. They have had conventional military capabilities including air and naval capabilities. Ask other countries around the world what they would do if they are faced with the same threat.

The LTTE needs to release all Tamil civilians it is holding in the little piece of real estate it currently controls. Look at the rest of Sri Lanka, Tamils are not being killed. They are living peacefully with the Sinhalese and Muslims and going about their lives. Tamil civilians are dying in the north of the country b

The only discriminated race in Sri Lanka is Sinhalese (thank for the selfish politians in SL). Except Forces and Police, they are under represented.

After Prapbakaran, don't worry, nothing will be change. There will be a silence for while, then again trouble will be there, as it is now or with different face. There is no solution Sinhalese and Tamils ( I mean minority separatist Tamils, not the innocent majority ) can agree.

This conflict has been there since first century BC,it is a part of Sinhalese chronicles. As Sinhalese have defended their nation for 2 milleniums, they will definately defend it for another 2 milleniums.

I doubt MR govenment will ever try to stop fighing. if they do, they will be out of office at next election as they have done absolutely nothing to the other burining problems of SL.

I see a nexus of power-hungry internal rabble-rousers (Vaiko, Thirumalavan, Ramadoss, Karunanidhi) coming together for personal gain on the Greater Dravidian Nation agenda. Karunanidhi is driven by dynastic amibitions and writes poems praising Tamiselvam n his emotional moments. Vaiko is a bosom pal of Prabhakaran, having broken bread with him hiding in the Wanni. Ramadoss is desperate to find a platform to propel himself into power, whether it is by exploiting Vanniyar-rights or Dalit rights. And then there is good old Thirumavalavan...getting rich fast on the LTTE payroll. Many of these guys bemoan the lack of an independent nation for Tamils, and stoke manufactured grievances against the non-Tamil North Indians.

The "external" input to this witches brew comes from that prodigal son Prabhakaran, the LTTE organization, and the Sri Lankan Tamil diaspora. They still have a vast income generating machine for destabilizing Tamil Nadu, with a tax-paying diaspora population, investments in a vast array of businesses, established scams, front offices, safe houses, a phalanx of well trained international NGOs, and purchased politicians in western countries. We are talking here of a mature 0.5-2.0 billion USD/year criminal business enterprise. The LTTE mafia, spread out all over the world, need jobs, and dare not let their "cause" die. Well, Sri Lanka is too dangerous a place for them now, as it is too well organized to cope with their antics; and with a SLDF scheduled to perhaps double in size in the coming years, there no possibility of a safe haven in Sri Lanka; that is gone for good. So,the LTTE now needs a friendly home and a different place to ply its "Tamil cause" with their characteristic enthusiasm.

What better place is there for them than the Tamil majority Tamil Nadu, and India, whose leaders are babes in the woods totally unprepared to cope with these con-artists. You see, they had a big problem in Sri Lanka...they were a very small minority...that problem does not exist in Tamil Nadu. They will come home to roost in Tamil Nadu, with "umbilical cord" appeals, bribery, threats and murder as their well-worn tools of the trade. Here is a fertile ground for mayhem, where gullible people can be whipped up into an ethnic frenzy and made to immolate themselves like flies in a bonfire. They have already grease the wheels and bought all the necessary politicians needed to stoke the fire for the big rollout of the LTTE bandwagon. For example, there is our hero Thirumavalavan who went on a "fast unto death" and called it off "upon heartfelt pleas made" by another LTTE lackey because he was too valuable to the cause to be allowed to pass into the netherworld. I think people who call off fasts unto death prematurely should be immediately beheaded...don't you? Calling off fasts without achieving their goals gives every upright politician, like Mahatma Gandhi, a bad name...quite reprehensible.

Mind you, the poor people who burnt themselves were Indian Tamils, not Sri Lankan Tamils, and certainly not the LTTE operatives who have complex plans to raise families, and see their children through college in the best of western universities, and retire in luxury. That is LTTE leader's forte... getting other people to sacrifice themselves on the altar of their cause.

There is already a group of militants training in Tamil Nadu for guerilla warfare...they only lack a fulltime leader with impeccable credentials in terrorism... enter the maximum Thalaivar... Vellupillai Prabhakaran!

Politicians in Tamil Nadu have already announced the Greater Dravidian Nation (GDN) principle: they claim to represent, and assert jurisdiction over, all Tamil people allover in the world, no matter how small a fraction of the total population of a country they are. All they ask for is that you are a majority in a region no matter how small..could be a a street, a village, a borough...and that becomes a part of the Greater Dravidian Nation with an inalienable right of self-determination as a part od the GDN. It was a similar assertion by Hitler with respect to the German Diaspora in Europe that started WW-II...which basically destroyed a whole generation of German people. In the case of Tamil people, it is only going to jeopardize their security, and their image, all over the world.

Summarizing, all ingredients, potentially including a fifth-column within the RAW organization, necessary and perhaps sufficient to set Tamil Nadu on fire, now exist in Tamil Nadu. I hope some leaders will emerge in Tamil Nadu with the wisdom to recognize this looming danger to the lives of their people. Sri Lankan leaders did not have that vision, or the determination, to resist it with all their strength, until now.

Don't worry about the Muslims in Sri Lanka they are doing fine. Let not your Govt or the saffron robed beasts lay their hand on the Muslims lest there won't be any India. For your information it is India that trained these terrorists and remember Rajiv Ghandi had to pay the price for it.

Some people are commenting obnoxiously....Firstly, if it is an tamil people then they should go in hands with LTTE cadre to fight against SLA..and if it is sinhalese then they should fight against LTTE..All the thing that matters is that restoration of peace..Tamils want separate home so all tamils should fight together instead of shouting from far like coward people.. In the past i was good supporter of tamils but now i began hating them.. Because many turned traitors..They tell everything about LTTE to the SLA so LTTE are loosing the battle fronts so easily.. Tamils cant and will never get freedom in their entire life or entire rebirth because they are afraid of dieying..Except LTTE cadres all other tamils are coward ,i proved.. A war for freedom includes submitting of your dead body to your enemy but instead all civilians are fleeing...So is it possible for Tamils to get freedom??? If then tell how???? They cry for freedom and also cry for life that too under the shed of SLA..Means in all these days LTTE coukdnot prove that they are dying for TAMIL people!!!!! Shame on lankan tamils...Some of the tamils are totally numb about the killings and misery,,shamefullllllllll...If they cant fight for freedom then better start killing LTTE in secret if they thinks LTTE is not their army...But i guess if LTTE succeed in liberating themselves from SLA then all other tamils will too ask LTTE for getting them inclcuded in tamil land.. So i request all tamils to fight till that if they wants freedom..And i request all sinhalese and other tamils to fight against LTTE if they thinks LTTE is useless force(terrorist) But now it is proved tamils are cowardice,,they sought from far far far place like they are fighter..They cant even kill a small rat...I was a supporter of tamils but they they get me away..i am now drifted away..beacause civilians fleeing the war zones turned trators...And in addition to that other tamils are also mullying..they are not supporting LTTEs.. If supporting then they can blow them from the south nonorth and east sri lanka..So tamil people please dont comment as if you people are brave.. stop saying against sri lanka.. you people do not deserve freedom..Dye in hospital or in your own village that too because of malaria or influenza.. You dont deserve to die like soldiers now...

LTTE has more influence in Tamil Nadu than the central government. If 2 countries were to form, the new pariah nation of racist Ealam with pure Tamil Chauvinist will start influencing Tamil Nadu politics. Within 5 years Tamil Nadu will break away from India, and they will form a Greater Ealam Nation. India will break up like the former USSR.

The new pure Tamil state will build Submarines, Missile systems, Nuclear weapons, buy jets, and have weapons of Mass destruction. The opportunist Tamils who profited from this war by escaping to the west as refugees will continue to play the victim card to remain in those countries. But they will be supplying secrets from all levels of those societies. Hence the Tiger nation will have an influential intelligence network. The Kingdom of Thalivar, the Sun God of Ealam, will continue to abduct innocent children and turn them into suicide bombers.

He will use the suicide bombers to kill all opposition to him in Greater Ealam, and other neighboring countries. He will control the Indian Ocean, and will charge every ship that pass by a tax. The western world will complain, especially Australia. But for about the first 10 years, Prabhakaran will assasinate the leadership in Australia. Then the Tamil diaspora will claim to be victims of Aussie discrimination, and agitate for 2/3rds of Australia. They will claim the Eastern coast of Australia was originally Tamil Homeland. They will say that it was a Tamil Man who put a garland of flower on Thomas Cook, when he landed their.

The Aussie Tamils will be successful in creating a Tamil Homeland down under. Charles Anthony has created the new Tamil Empire. M.I.A, will drug Prince Harry, rape him and get pregnant.

She will ask her uncle to send a suicide bomber to wipe out the royal family, and been the mother to the future king, she will crown herself Queen of England.

The Canadian Tamils will demand a province of Canada as the sole property of Tamils as Tamils are VICTIMS of Canadian discrimination. They will take it by force.

The sinhalese as a race will be extinct. The world will wonder, what happened? Why did we not listen? USA will be the only independent country that will realize the danger, of Tamil racism, and chauvinism. They will try fighting for short time, and give up. The clan of Prabhakaran has its claws in all over the world, and like a parasite reaper, will suck the worlds wealth.

The world will become a terrible place to live, the western countries will become dirty, as there are no more toilet cleaners. The vatican will be destroyed by a mysterious fire.

A new religion will emerge, with prabhakaran and his family been proclaimed as the Sun Gods. Tamils will still proclaim to be Victims, as that is their birth right. They will wipe out the sinhalese race from the world, but proclaim they were genocided by sinhalese. They will wipe out the Biharis, but claim the biharis are genociding the Tamils. They will wipe out the Aussies, and proclaim that the Aussies are Genociding the Tamils. The world will wake up to find the superior race of Tamils as the new leaders. Their empire will become known as Lemuria.

The Sun God will add a new Genetical code to Tamil genes, so that all tamils will lay eggs, and future generation of Tamils will hatch from eggs, as original Lemurian, the fore fathers of Tamils did.

Yes! the world was ready for the past 3 decades. Prabakaran is a hero only to the LTTE, blood thirsty Tamils and certain bankrupt politicians in North America, Europe and Sri Lanka. He is a hero only to them, and not to any True Sri Lankan. I think he is already dead. When he was portrayed as a might powerful warlord by the NGO's and then govt under the "leadership?" of Ranil Wickramasinghe, a lot of Tamils in Europe and North America were actively supporting LTTE with money and by tarnishing the image of Sri Lanka. When LTTE is losing it's power due to the operations of the armed forces, many of the LTTE supporters have become quiet. One day soon when we hear the news that the Prabakaran is dead, they might go "who is Prabakaran?". However I do not think there will be big celebrations because nobody wants to celebrate the death of a maggot which is so insignificant.

K de Silva's comment(#3) is not true at all. Tamils have more than equal rights now. Look who cannot go or live in the North? Look who gets visas faster to any country? Look who goes to university with minimal scores? The majority of the country being Sinhalese, do not have any of those privileges enjoyed by the Tamils. Do your research properly before putting down comments first. The 83 riots had been started as a result of militant tamil groups started killing Sinhales. We as Sinhalese had to seek protection from Police protect our lives and property. Later the tide turned around and the attackers became attacked. It was a clear example of what happens when the minorities try to oppress the majority of a country. I think K de Silva is not Sinhalese or he is in the LTTE Payroll.

I keep asking the Tamils what the problems they have that they shout all around the world? Nobody tells me what they are. The reason is there is no answer because the question itself is a complete fabrication. What they do is keep telling the same lies and repeat them until world comes to believe them. Just like what selva did (#7 to #10).

Tamils now have forgotten why the youths in North took arms in the first place. They were protesting for being oppressed by their own high cast Tamils. Later politicians and churches in the north with the help of the NGO's turned their anger and hatred towards Sinhalese which was more logical and could easily gain attention. Now they have ruined the our country and still being oppressed by the High Cast Tamils who have mostly living in other countries.

Wake up Sri Lankan Tamils living in Sri Lanka and outside Sri Lanka! You are digging your own grave by your own actions. Your LTTE does not have any more support from the world. The dream of elam will not realize for another zillion years. We the Sinhales who reject violence and mind our own business will prosper. Tamils will have to find a new cause to start another fight. You can the join the vast majority of peaceful Sri Lankan community or be perished by being engulfed in your own hatred

Interesting comments by K Silva, which leaves much to contemplate.
I have lived in many parts of the world and have learnt safety is a relative thing, which is the putcome of how one takes care of him/herself.
If you don't go looking for trouble, and learn how to avoid unnecessary conflict, life can be as easy and safe as yesterday. It is when one goes looking for trouble that things go south.

rita (#33 to #35 repetitions), what a bunch of crap you came up with. I bet you do not have any facts to prove your allegations. You also do simply what all of your kind do i.e. telling lies. People like you create bad impressions of your own country around the world fortunately nobody believes those now. You can keep telling lies because that seems to be the only thing some of you are good at. The truth is known to all around the world. The dream is over and wake up because I don't think you have still realized what is going on with the Tamil Terrorism.
The Tamil Terrorism is taking it's final breaths. Soon it will be all over.

I agree with Vinod Bhargava (Comment # 2) when he says that Sri Lanka has provided us with a method of eliminating terrorism. All those terrorists eliminated by the Sri Lanka army were 100% Hindus/Tamils. But we Sri Lankans still not call them 'Hindu/Tamil Terrorist'. India should learn a lesson from Sri Lanka in naming terrorist. Not all Muslims are terrorists the same way all Tamils/Hindus are not terrorist. If Indians can learn this lesson they can prosper, if not they are doomed. Don't forget India helped set up the terrorist Tigers.

I have seen other posts regarding SriLanka on civil rights and tamilians and srilankans getting killed. But this post is the only one where I could see the hatred non-Tamils have on LTTE and Muslims. Pity. Not a single soul on the Tamil civilans getting killed in SriLanka now. May god bless you all with a kind heart.
