Taming Militants: Lessons from Sri Lanka

  • 15 Nov 2006 16:41:33 GMT

    This article amply illustrates why Prabhakaran wanted Mahinda to be president.Mahinda is the best man to deliver Eelam to the tamil people.

    He is under the vice like grip of the monks and the militray and they will never allow him to waver from the military path. He is unable to accept or even consider the advice of India, the EU or the co-chairs to accomodate a peaceful solution.

    About 4/5 of this report is telling ground reality of the issue. Worth to read. And, its criticizing Sinhalese, while not totally accepting LTTE as the only solution for Tamils.

    This is the truth,...

    GOSL and Sinhalese must work hard to build the harmony and trust.

    But not like this,..

    [If it could work between Indians and Pakistanis, why can`t it between the Tamils and the Sinhalese` ]

    India and Pakistan are having a considerable power balance with huge conventional armies. If there is a war, both countries are not considering civilian casualties, but only the ways to attack.

    But, LTTE and SLA is not matching conventional point of view. We cant talk about a conventional all-out war...others will involve soon.

    But, for India and Pakistan, no one will intermediate if there is a war,..they have to settle that.

    ----

    Off now.

    Yes yes of course Ruwani only the master Sinhala Nazi race are worthy of praise right? All others are subhuman right? LOL the master race running their country into the crapper LOL.

    At least the Germans had some qualifications to call themselves a master race, we are still reaping the benefits of their scientific and technological advances, pray tell what has Sinhala Lanka achieved? LOL

    So Mr. Prabarkaren going to declare War on Nov. 27 and save the world or what?

    Who started the war MR Government or LTTE

    I`m sure majority of Sinhalese doesn?t like war. But there should be ONE-COUNTRY, ONE ? FLAG under ONE-ANTHEM for SRI LANKA.

    Roshan,

    Frankly, Federalism will not work for SL. Imagine eelamists asking for more money from Federal govt. during each budget. How sickening that would be? They will produce less, live on our handouts and demand more benefits or threaten to seperate if not given.

    The only solution we have is a Unitary constitution. Where we rule the roost and remind each one who governs this country on a daily basis.
