What did Ranil do during his term. Sold SL lock stock & barrel to Norway and various Norwegian companies for big money but did not do anything with that money.
At least the Prez though not being able to do anything at least have brought the ltte to heel.
Tigers never allowed the Prez to settle in his office from day one & tigers assumed the Prez was easy meat......
Lookslike, tigers have met their waterloo despite at the expense of the COL and the poor.
LTTE rocked the boat when RW was in power and tried to pull the wool over the Prez eyes. Unfortunately, what the tigers did not realise was that they had to confront a street fighter who is street smart.........
Though the ltte was being funded by Norway and the Tamil diaspora for their selfish gains, they can not continue to bully a democratically elected government with deceit and lies and brutality. You & do not suffer as you all only have gains to make.
Thoppigala was something to crow about. GOSL needs to give a life to these masses who have suffered..... From now on you can see whether ltte are genuinely for the welfare of the people or selfish by their actions after gosl commence to improve these areas.
If ltte is to take the destructive road, then the blame can be fairly and squarely placed with the Norwegians & the Overseas tamil diaspora.
As for now, LTTE & Ranil have both failed the Norwegians. Only the NGOs and AFP are continuing to make a hue & cry.
