    [``Had they succeeded, the government`s success in driving the LTTE out of their all strongholds including Trincomalee would have sounded hollow.`` ]

    It sound hollow anyway, when one looks at the crimes reported from East. And, Toppigala still in LTTE hands, despite one year effort by SLA.

    [The driver of the truck had said he was asked to hand the explosives over to a person in Colombo.

    Waste of good explosives if it was to be used on those scum.

    Good job SLN and congratulations to all ooficers, sailors and Eastern naval commander R/Admiral Thisara Samarasinghe. Your main enemy is LTTE and LTTE is also thinking navy is the main barrier to achieve thier main goal.

    How many times LTTE has planned to kill large number of people by exploding very powerful bombs in Colombo during last 2 month. Luckily all such attemps were detected well ahead by police or military forces. But who can give a guarantee that all such attempts will be stopped by forces. This is the LTTE target now. They don`t mind even to kill thousands of innocent civilians if they can kill one or two military or police or politicians with a bomb. I don`t know why the international community is not concern about these brutal attacks of LTTE. Can we allow tamils coming from East or North to stay a long time in lodges in Colombo?.

    During the second world war all Japanese who had canadian citizenship were arrested by Canadian police and forces, and kept them in jail for a long period thinking those japanese were a threat to the canadian national security. Still Americans arrest suspicious muslims and keep them in jail thinking their free movement will be a threat to national security of US. We allow suspicious tamils to have free movement in any part of South in Sri Lanka. But LTTE will not allow any sinhalese or muslims to travel in LTTE controlled areas. Only a few muslims or sinhalese have at lease very restricted entrance to north.

    If government is not going to impose very restricted conditions for vehicles or people coming from north to enter south, there will be a very high damage to south soon.

    [1,000 kgs of explosives]

    Always 1000 Kgs! Why not 1500 Kgs or 500 Kgs. As long as there are several people in the south to believe, 1000 is a good number!

    UK is learning basics about terrorism today. We have known all these long before and they should have thought differently when they talk about human rights in SL. Shame on IC including USA, NORWAY, UK...

    [Shame on IC including USA, NORWAY, UK...]

    It is very sad that these countries stoped droping coins in the begging bowl.
