    Say, these are the things that journalists question GOSL.

    HOw come they allowed sailors to launch the boat without proper gear and weapons.

    I think parents and relatives of the sailors should sue the GOSL.

    Probably SLN did not have escape michanisms or exercises that sailors can adhere to if sailors had to abandon the boat.

    Only way left was to perish.

    They probably are good swimmers. Will not lose life. Can save life by becoming a captive. LTTE treats them good.

    GOSL pays their salary to the family. Family is happy that these captives are in safe hands and will not die in a battle. They are out of danger.

    Malinger in style!

    While Ranil Ponniah and Chandrika Vesaballi allowed and helped the LTTE Hyenas to update / upgrade their fire power Our Brave forces had to defend with these types of cr@p

    All these sailers must be swimmers but when the blast happen they were thown into the sea and with the shock they loose consious that is why they drawn.

    if that ship with 700 criminals on board sank , it will be a titanic scene.

    it was said indian producers have known about it and they came by boat to take live shots once the ship go under water and criminals body float on the sea.

    [They probably are good swimmers. Will not lose life. Can save life by becoming a captive. LTTE treats them good. ]

    Only people who survived the LTTE jails during the 20 year war was the 7 Army soliders and a naval officer. Rest who surrendered were massacred in cold blooded. That is the story. LTTE treated them f`ing badly. The tigers who surved jail sentences before the CFA and eventually released after the CFA told the media that they were badly treated at the prisons. Atleast GOSL spared their lives though there could be excessess by the GOSL in some cases.

    SO FAIR PLAY if you get caught by the LTTE for any reason, there is a hundred percent, I repeat 100% chance, you will come in a body bag, that is if you are extreamely lucky, otherwise they will leave the body to rot.

    That is why we called the LTTE a terroists organisation (latest being the CANADIANS )which is run by a blood thirsty barbarian called prabha.

    In all 20000 armed forces personnal died/disabled or missing

    About 8000 are MIA. So tell me FAIRPLAY where are they? Are they in the five star LTTE prisons getting according to you a good care at the hands of LTTE??

    All these people talk nonsense in Internet. Where were these talkative ba****ds when real war happening. Only our soldiers know how tough the war is.

    Another factor I want to highlight is about LTTE`s claim about civilian killing by Forces. I know these Tamil civilians who were killed or died by attacks are not real civilians. They are terrorists at night and civilians at day time, specially when they were killed. GOSL or SLA never kill innocent people unlike LTTE.Has LTTE ever accepted that any of their members died or killed by SLA? No, any time a Tamil is killed, they say it is a civilian. Ho ho, some thing is funny. I believe GOSL and rest of the world are not stupid to believe these stories by LTTE and its supporters.

    These bloody suicide attacks should be stopped and culprits should be brought to justice.

    These sinhala madayans think that they can float. When they find out that they can`t it is too late. Real madayans.

    And they want to defeat the LTTE!!! What a joke.

  • 15 May 2006 14:38:42 GMT

    Wasa madayan,

    The four year old and the four month old kids were terrorists at night and civilians by day, were they?

    You are more madayan than I thought at first.

    Every sailor should be able to swim. swimming is something once you learn you dont ever forget it.

    if youre in water your tread water. thats the first thing you get taught while learning to swim.

    when the DVORa blows up it doesnt matter. youre pretty much DEAD before you hit the water i would think. maybe if youre half alive then maybe a life jacket might save you. but the SEA tigers will get you. so either way you aint gonna survive it.
