    They might have a go out of a Dovra during the New year,it`s better for the government to be vigilant.

    The colombo area is usually given more police coverage in the festive seasons (x`mas too) becuase hundreds of people crowd the place in last minute shopping....you should see Pettah/bamba/dehiwala/borella during April and December!

    as to TCK`s observation-it has usually been the case in the south that the eiltes are protected while the masses are left behind.

    Tck is right! Government scum only look after it`s cronies in every situation,an example is the JVP cirsis in `88 the politicians were well protected while the the ordinary people like us were exposed to the JVP murderes.Also CBK,when presidend cordoned half the Fort area,for her protection,while the tax paying buseness were allowed to suffer,in areas close to the Presidental palace.They think the own the country.this another stupid act by the idiotic police force.If these leaders can`t take a risk,then they should not be in that job.

    Whether the security is beefed up, chickened up, lambed up or fished up it would make no difference to VP and the LTTE. At the rate things are going it wouldn`t be long before bombs begin to explode in Colombo killing thousands.

    Who is going to protect the Tamil civilians in Trinco?

    I hear that the SLA and the SLN are aiding and abeting the Sinhala thugs in the murder, looting and burning of Tamils and their property there.

    The only people the govt is interested in protecting are the ruling elite and the rich and the famous.

    Kiwikanga,

    It is very unlikely the LTTE will target civilians. Do you have any proof that the LTTE planted the bomb in the market? There are many suspects to this dastardly crime which includes the SL military and the paramilitaries.

    You are right in saying that the LTTE will attach Colombo but the targets will be politico-military and economic. There will not be any targeting of civilians as it be very counterproductive to their cause. As you acn see in Trinco the SLA nad SLN leading the Sinhala thugs in attacking the Tamils will show to the world why the Tamils are fighting for a separate state.

    I agree with Piranha. LTTE will come to colombo/south but i dont think they will touch the citizens. those days are gone. They will go after economic targets which will be more powerful than targetting the innocent.

    maybe putting these politicians at these targets might get the extra protection thats gonna be needed.

    Not only economic targets - TC - but also Command and control elements.

    That, my friend, would hurt lot of people workin, dealing, using those facilities.
