The bubble has burst!

    With this attitude we will keep acting and reacting for another 50 years. Tit for tat till the cows come home. Still no eelam but those trapped in the NE will never have a life. Will you be happy with this result?

    You have been doing it for 30 years with no result . You still have not beaten the LTTE . Don`t you want to give peace a chance.

    As long as LTTE`s goal is eelam then the result of the last 30 years is a dismal failure for them.

    I would like nothing more than to see peace in my belpoved country so that the everyone can live without fear and SL can finally achieve its full potentiual. If LTTE is serious about addressing substantive issues like redeveloping NE and other concerns with ensuring tamil citizens feel like they can live as equal citizens of SL they should take the opportunity to engage in diuscussion to address these issues - last peace talks were a classic example where they focused on a-9 and scuttled the talks. Just to keep the war going.

    WRH,

    [This is double standard if I have ever seen one.

    When the GoSL drops bombs on homes of civilians and kill them it is ok but when LTTE bombs a Transformer it is terrorism?]

    GOSL killing innocent civilians is just a myth fabricated by terrorists and their stupid supporters such as you. There could be one or two isolated incidents due to errant soldiers or due to mistake (As this is the case in any country). Logically there is no use for the government to kill innocent civilians or its fight against Terrorism.

    But for terrorists it is a big bonus to have as many civilians get killed in order to spread lies around the world to gain sympathy and discredit the Government. This is the case why your leaders provided arms training for civilian including school children during the so called peace time and now keep them forcefully under their clutches and using them as a human shield (Eg Waharai).

    [Don`t you want to give peace a chance.]

    You mean a chance to explode claymore mine and a chance to field your pistol gang again?

    One can be misinfromed but I think you are totally brainwashed.

    When the IC the UN is telling the GOSL to stop the killing of civilians I think you must be a real raceist of SL. not not being able to see the truth.

    The only thing missing in the scene is a cynide capsule that MI forgot to plant.

    [It is high time Prabhakran did so, came to terms with reality and settled for an alternative to his unattainable dream. ]

    What is the alternative? There is no mention of THE alternative in this long article except MaCarthyism.

    50 years have passed still no SL Govt tabled a viable or sincere solution.

    Most Sri Lankans are `Big Talkers` but hardly acheive anything!!

    [But, the continuation of violence and its refusal to agree to a political settlement have cost it international support to a great extent, as evident form the bans being slapped on it.]

    Who offered a political settlement? In the last 25 years has there been any credible effort to work a political settlement. It is a Government that can offer a political settlement. There was 2 years of peace when the CFA happened. But the SLG did not like it. Not even the time of Tsunami was made use by the SLG to bring peace. Now Mahinda is even distancing himself from the `Majority report` proposed by his own expert committee.

    So the logical alternative is to continue the blood shed. It doesnt matter if the common man suffers or if the country suffers and remains backward. Politicians can get richer because of the war. All opponents can be killed and the LTTE can be blamed. Absolute rule of the President and his cronies over a willing and brainwashed public.
