Gotabhaya Rajapakse tells NYT: Military has been ordered to kill Prabhakaran

    Don`t tell me this was not the objective from the time of JR.

    So someone had the balls to say it openly only problem is they have not been able to do this for the last 30years. It also contradicts all the statements made by GOSL at the highest level destroying all credibility.

    I thought Khelwatte and Forbes road had better hit men in Colombo. Chances are he will try and out source it to Karuna.

    I thought every Sinhala leader wants to keep Praba in place so they can use for their political gain. I don`t think anybody want to kill him.

    [`Jaffna is no stranger to war. Its temples and churches bear the pockmarks of battles past. Its people are familiar with running and dying. No other place is so scarred because no other places carries Jaffna`s special curse: it is the heart of the homeland that the Tamil Tigers have fought to carve out, and the trophy that soldiers and rebels have fought over all these years.`]

    If the President / Government had ordered the killing of war and all those who personified war - it would have won the game long time back - because Jaffna Tamils have invested heavily in EDUCATION. It is that investment in Education that will revive Jaffna beyond its past glory. Jaffna will emerge as the Education Capital of Sri Lanka - its rightfully earned status that was denied by the Sri Lankan Government.

    We have already started that process of restoration.

    What else, do military to repeat another wadamaarachchi ?

    VP should eliminate from this planet and Tamils should be allowed to live in peace.

    GOSL should bring in proposals for power devolution.

    If he gives it to Karuna we are in deep trouple. I wouldn`t trust Karuna for anything. Kehelwatta has good hitmen.

    Hope you don`t intend to go into the teaching profession.

    After Praba is dead I don`t have a problem giving a statehood to Jaffna. Of course we need to weed Rasaiah also.

    All at higher levels are after VP. VP knows the game very well. No one is immortal including VP. Bala died of cancer and many as 20,000 LTTE died as well. Game will continue as long as the players are ready.
