    Like every terrorist leader, prabakaran is putting everything into his last dance. They are more dangerous, mean and desperate towards the end. (Pol Pot, Hitler, Osama, ....)

    Prabakaran will also be abondaned by his closest associates at the last moment, because the more desperate he gets the more he will be difficult to deal with.

    SL forces should not allow him to escape to a foriegn country with his millions of dollars and the Gold he stole from people of Jaffna

    This is the usual propaganda of Govt funded and aided Asiatribune trying to justify their existance with the poor people`s money. If not for the blinded and racist propaganda of Asiatribune and the like Sinhala masses would realise the folly of military adventure and persuade the elitist chauvinists to look for genuine negotiations not to buy time as in the future but to seek a vable solution to the 50 year old racist problem created by illegal Sinhala Only act.

    [One of the puzzling issues in the latest attack is how the Tigers managed to break through the high security zones and reach the air force base without being noticed. There is speculation that the pre-dawn ground attack was carried out by the Tiger hardcore that fled into Wilpattu National Park after they were driven out of Silavathurai in Mannar district on September 2.]

    so youre on the run and plan such an attack. wow

    i guess the photo with VP was photoshopped

    i tell you the best graduates from the school of journalism are from the banana republic!

    Kusum

    [Like every terrorist leader had lived and died, prabakaran is also nearing his last dance.]

    when VP has his last dance..Charles will have his first dance..

    When the Australian Cricket team started playing well we all thought it will change when Steve Waugh retires but up came Ricky Ponting and the present Aussie cricket team..which kept them on top for another Decade..we are hoping it will change when Ponting goes..let us wait and see..

    Sri Lanka has not still learnt any basic lesson to prevent or counter the Tigers`deadly air attack with improvised aircraft.It demonstrates that we are fighting without any basic thinking.On the contrary we are going for highly sophisticated weapons putting the country into further economic problems jeopardising our precious future for nothing.It`s time for the Military Intelligence to adopt an effective mechanism to check the ground situation in all the vulnerable mililtary defense installations whether the state of preparedness remains active in the face of the so called well co-ordinated retaliatory deadly attacks by the Tigers. It is in fact highly susceptible for the warring army to go into slumber due to the protracted war and hence there must be some kind of mechanism in place to keep the weariness-stricken army in a steady state of alertness

    It`s pathetic to write[

    Analysts also note that the Tigers are targeting military camps and bases leaving out civilian centres. This is partly to minimize accusations of human rights violations and partly a diversionary tactic to draw attention away from their weakening position]

    to admit that the govt does not know how to avoid bombing and attacking civilians and `minimise accusations of human rights violations`. This is to admit that there is not even a single wise person on their govt side.

    [US urges Sri Lanka to accept UN human rights team to monitor deteriorating situation

    The Associated Press

    Published: October 22, 2007

    WASHINGTON: The United States urged Sri Lanka on Monday to reconsider its decision not to allow the United Nations to base a human rights monitoring group in the South Asian country.

    State Department spokesman Sean McCormack quoted an assessment by Louise Arbour, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, that the humanitarian situation is deteriorating in Sri Lanka.

    A 2002 cease-fire with ethnic Tamil separatists collapsed almost two years ago, and more than 5,000 people have died in the renewed fighting. Additionally, U.S.-based Human Rights Watch reports that more than 1,100 abductions or `disappearances` were reported between January 2006 and June 2007, many blamed on the government and its armed allies.

    On Saturday, Arbour decried `the weakness of the rule of law and prevalence of impunity` in Sri Lanka. She implicitly endorsed the idea of sending a U.N. rights monitoring group, which the Sri Lanka government has rejected.

    `An international human rights presence in Sri Lanka would be an important step in improving human rights, accountability, and the rule of law, and ultimately resolving the conflict in Sri Lanka,` McCormack said Monday.

    The Sri Lankan government contends it has adequate rights protections in place, including a national rights advisory panel. Four of the 10 members of the panel quit on Saturday because they said their advice was ignored, and the government used the existence of the panel as proof that it cares about its people`s human rights.]
