PARTIALLY True. But This is just ONE SIDE of the story.

Most reasonable people will agree that the Tamils were done wrong, in the past. But what is happening today is not justice for tamils. What is happening today is justice for one Deranged killer - VP...

The only winners from this war is extremists and Terrorists on both sides - LTTE + JVP.. No justice for tamils (or sinhalese) will come out of this.

There is a Sinhala saying;

Horage ammagen pena ahanawa wage kiyala.
(Asking the whereabouts of a thief from his mother)

This is an exact match for that.

A propaganda trash for the brain washed.

Before shanker got killed in 1982 by the SLA and became a hero for the Eelam myth, the Schizophrenic VP killed many Tamils NOT said in this trash. Shanker had paved the way for many thousands of death of Tamil youth who had become victims of the Tamil Eelam myth and propaganda machinery of the Tamil hypocrisy. After this massive suicide for 30 years Tamils have achieved only death, destruction, starvation , displacement , indignity and humiliation and they are celebrating the destruction of Tamil society on a pseudo hero's day.

This is an excellent video. Most here dont seem to know how it all started and encourage everyone to take a look.

Nonsense Anizam.

just agreeing the tamils were done wrong ISNT ENOUGH.

Most of the Diaspora were DIRECTLY affected by what thw GOSL did. who
gives us justice. you have to be on the recieving end to understand it.
what is happening today is the GOSl is taking the sinhala folks for a grand ride.
until VP came along the GOSl didnt have anyone to answer to. the buck stops here!

A propaganda trash for the brain washed.

Magha

watch and learn how a peoples determination and courage can give people to be proud of themselves. yes there is loss of life but eventually a new country will be born. dont shed crocodile tears for the tamil lives lost there is loss of life in all liberation struggles. look at iraq eventually americans will just walk off. some prefer to fight and die than live as slaves. in the meantime why dont you give your sinhalease centric lectures to the sinhalease they are the ones who needs changing you only want tamils to change while you want to remain the same.

in the meantime be thankful a tamil student with higher marks stood aside for you to enter medical school with lower marks. so you can come here and put on your conceited airs

Why is Lankanewspapers.com promoting ethnic conflicts here? That's so pathetic. Too bad no one has control over online forums.

TCK,

Well,almost every Tamil Intellectual who opposed LTTE doctrine openly had been eliminated by LTTE , You want to call all those idiots?

TCK,
you are just a sprat in the ocean of Tamil intellectuality . So you calling my comments as idiotic is another desperate attempt to destroy a strong opposition for what went wrong badly. I do not care what you call me.

Facts are actual events that had happened, but it does not give a legitimacy or justification for the consequences of the facts. I do not know the level of your education to understand in depth philosophy but it appears that you got lost in translation akin to many, no disgrace, but there is room to improve and learn through dialogue. LTTE doctrine which is monolithic ,dictated by a criminal who does not have much education to understand the dialectics of socio -political development is also infested with Tamil Racism which of course had been given an impetus through the facts of post independent Sri Lanka. When facts remains as they are , an intellectual interpretation of facts is mandatory today than a cheap documentary to be conceived as a valid opinion.

I hope you and I can be engaged in an intellectual dialogue.

TC - you are confusing what i said. Im not trying to dispute about what happened to the Tamils. What im commenting about is what the LTTE is doing.

TO ME - there is a difference between the tamils and the LTTE, NO MATTER what ANYONE else says.

Forget EVERYTHING else for a moment, What the LTTE has done to the Tamils, is equally bad as what those Sinhala mobs did to the Tamils in 83. Today ANY tamil would live among the Sinhalese in Wallawattha than live under the LTTE in Vanni.
