    Unless MR move fast to negotiations with genuine proposals similar to the one APRC head published in Feb 2007 the military victory will end up as another mirage that previous leaders witnessed.

    [In 1995, the Kumaratunga government made a grand show of the `liberation` of Jaffna....the time President Kumaratunga `was retired`, the military had lost most of its vital installations in the North including the Elephant Pass base. ]

    Damed,

    You are correct. Mahinda is playing his cards really well. Mahinda has strenghtened the SLFP to face elections without the JVP, and also Mahinda has supported and strengthened the Military who have liberated the East from Tiger Terror...

    Mahinda Rajapakse wins and heart and mind of Hardliners but gain the wrath and curse of poor.

    His maniifesto - Mahinda Chintaya, has failed miserably. I have not witnessed a government such a flop within less than 2 years. Mahinda Rajapakse is a one term president for `Sure`. He knows it very well than some staunch supporters who tries hard to establish him as the man for Lanka.

    Genuinely, what has he done for the last 2 years apart from the war? Any progress. Any projects that have some impact in the economy. Mihin Air, running at loss. Airport project? Some say doom to fail.

    I too voted for Mahinda but I shall never again.

    Donaldcleevel,

    MR is using figures around him tactically,looks he is holding to power by strings but things different.

    Chinthana is a fake.

    MR has failed miserably in economy sector but he will retain a second term with a another chinthana ?

    Mahinda Rajapakse is the president of Sri Lanka for uneducated and tribal minded people. Also he is a hero for some memebers of this forum who has a never ending personal hatred for RW.

    What a farce ! What a govt! We are in a total mess apart from this Thoppigala capture.

    Only a little over 50% voted for this man and what percentage has now gone aginst him after getting to know the lies spread by JVP and JHU and having a secret link with LTTE to prevent citzens of SL living in NE thier vote.

    Thambi we won and you lost. It is all about the `real estate` and your Eelam is now just a dream.

    Well done boys and never forget the sacrifices of others.

    Chaps,

    The story is a good one--downright sensible. Leave the military affairs to the generals, I say. No sense in taking over territory that is too costly to hold, even if this is politically desirable.

    To go back to my old Mossies role--keep pounding their transports on sight. Follow the tracks in the dirt and knock `em off. Without transports, the LTTE will not be as mobile and that is the key to pin them down. In the old days we used to knock off Jerry transport and trains with our planes on the way back to Dover. With the weapons systems you have today, it might be possible to keep a Herc loitering in relative safety at 30,000 and knock off their tranports.

    Just to let you chaps know Scotland yard is hot on the heels of several LTTE badies. The information stored over the years is proving to be very useful, and many are happy to rat on their bosses.

    Cheers!

    LTTE who controlled the entire Nothern Province and majority areas of the Eastern Province before 1995 has lost almost the Jaffna peninsula and the entire Eastern Province .They have to learn from it.

    After the celebrations of Jaffna victory in 1995 the Government lost the area won by Operations Sathjaya(from Kilinochchi to Muhamalai)and Jayasikuru (from Omanthai to Mankulam and Ottusuttan in Vanni)and the very strategic Elephant Pass. They have to learn from it.

    How long are the people going to suffer for Ealam or the eradication of Tigers?

    At the same time ridiculing the Thoppigala by the opposition while claming that it was they who captured the Baron`s Cap first is nothing other than hypocrasy and jelousy.
