Sri Lanka: Isolating LTTE is not the answer

  • 4 Jan 2007 08:53:21 GMT

    No we should isolate these scumbags from the ordinary tamils specially the hardcore LTTE terrorists. There are may be more moderate LTTE ers now thinking of leaving the organisation in sight of heavy defeats and setbacks. So The GOSL should try to open indirect channels to get these moderate LTTErs to the side of GOSL and rehabilitaion of these cadres. So these people would have an option for choosing the democratic path. The Thamil homeland MYTH should be abolished. SRILANKA FOR ALL

    Ravin?s approach is right. You really have to differentiate between the ordinary Tamil fellow and the hard core. Like their brothers in the East, the Wanni civilians will soon realise that their best option for progress is also =voting with their feet= and move to cleared areas on a temporary basis.

    Peace settlement largely falls within the purview of the peace loving Tamil majority. Considering the strength and scope of the LTTE establishment, LTTE is the enemy of Peace loving majority of Tamils and the nation of Sri Lanka. LTTE will not come to a peaceful settlement of the conflict. It?s nonsensical to believe LTTE will agree to a unitary sovereign nation of Sri Lanka where the goals and objectives are to solve disadvantages and problems of language, culture and ethnicity amicably and by practical compromises and progressive values by united consensus of the nation. So both the government and the LTTE will continue to waste valuable human, material and financial resources in this conflict. The sensible Tamil majority must take the resolve to unite with the government and give supportive momentum to defeat and denounce LTTE and resolve their aspirations democratically.

    The real objective should be:

    No peace for LTTE until they join the democartic process.

    Then! what is the answer

  • 4 Jan 2007 23:31:22 GMT

    Tamil in TAMILcountry in India for hundreds of years followed the same struggle. They could not be violent with the Indian govt. because they knew they would loose.

    But, Tamils chose violence with the GOSL, they know that they can win with GOSL because Sri Lanka is a Small country.

    Even with the fact that India being a large country, population being over one billion, even with the Tamil President, and the Tamil Ministers in the Central govt., Still Tamilcountry of India uses THREATENING tactics to get the undue attention from the Central Indian govt.

    Again, TamilCountry of India, even today uses RACIST, CASTE POLITICS and TAMILCOUNTRY is still behind KERALA AND ANDRA PRADESH. Tamilcountry Tamils are still very poor and backword compared to adjoining STATES.

    IF GOSL agrees to federal Solution, Sri Lanka will have the Same fate. There won`t be anything left except satisfying tamils.

    Therefore, We don`t have to isolate LTTE, instead we leave those tamils with LTTE and ask them to win everything with Brutal Violence.

    If the World is for Brutal violence, I am pretty sure the whole world would adopt the very same techniques to COME TO DEMOCRACY and become humans.

    You don`t need to isolate the LTTE as former powerful and influential supporters are distancing & leaving them.

    The best example is R.Jayadevan of UK who backed the LTTE to the hilt and used his influence to get the stranded Anton Bala get into the UK.

    When he visited the Wanni with a donation collected from the worshippers from the Wembly Kovil for the upliftment of the poor in the North, the donation was confiscated, he was incaserated in the Wanni and LTTE was taken steps to takeover the Wembly Kovil.

    British GOVT intervened to get him released.

    This Mr. R.Jayadevan has now come to realise what & who the LTTE are ? They bite the hand that serve.

    He is now running anti-ltte crusade with moderate tamils. It is these people the GOSL should invite to map out a moderate policy for SL to enable people to live with mutual respect & in harmony.
