UN workers in LTTE custody

    Gotabhaya has the monopoly on abductions he should be really unhappy that LTTE walked into his territory.

    I don`t think he has to worry much: this should be detention like the police officers who walked into LTTE territory.

    By the way what happened to the ship with rice that docked in the North. I think GOSL said that only they can release it was it released?

    What ever Goatabaya saya is a load of crap . No one is interested in what this moron has to say. Everything this man says is a lie. Nothing to talk about. It is of no concern to the UN even , only to GoSL and Goatabaya and gang.

    It is a non starter.

    I think the abduction will create a win-win situation for the LTTE. It seems that already the UN has undermined the authority of the GOSL, by covertly dealing with the LTTE. LTTE now just needs to release those UN folks to show that LTTE are really not bad as they are made to look. UN dealing directly with terror groups creates bad precedence, and will encourage more abductions not only in SL in other troubled regions where UN is (passively) active.

    Anyway, hope the UN workers are released without any harm though.

    I see Lanka web and defence (all most all of GOSL control medias)try to flatter Palali air rides.......there are so many cotraditions to their headline and the content........But it seems `majority` belive their story.....this time I remember........S///// modiya halukantha....rothaiya

    Thasheeela,

    All media reports agree however that

    1. LTTE planes came to Palali

    2. Dropped several bombs

    3. Escaped into the night.

    Where LTTE media and GOSL media disagree is the extent of damage caused to Palali.

    Given that several independent news agencies have visited Palali, I think the GOSL version is correct on the extent of damage being minor.

    It would be really difficult for the LTTE pilots to asses the damage they caused when their rear-ends are painted with .50 mm machine gun fire (especially at night). So I won`t believe the stories of the LTTE pilots.

    Moby,

    Good thought.

    Who would be the `big bad woulf`? SLDF or the UN peacekeeping forces?

    Who would have been the liason between the tigers and the UN. Should be interesting to find out. Norwegians perhaps?

    Moby, if LTTE had any sense they would have released the UN workers and picked up the `browny points`. But we know that LTTE leaders are not sensible, and anyway, it is too late for that now. LTTE will make a quagmire out of this as well. I hope GOSL won`t release terrorist suspects to get the UN workers released.
