    Imagine! What a monster!

    [This bomb explosion was not the first, carried out by the suspect. He claimed that, his target was to explode eight bombs in buses, of which two (the one in Mt. Lavinia and the other in Piliyandala) had already been carried out.

    He is also responsible for the claymore mine which exploded in Kebitigollewa, targeting a civilian bus, where more than 30 innocent civilians, were killed and many others injured.

    He claimed that, he was also responsible for the claymore explosions of the Army bus, near Hotel Nippon, the bombing of the Army bus near Belekkade, Ratmalana and the one close to St. John`s fish market, the parcel bomb at the `No Limit` garment shop at Nugegoda, which killed more than 15 innocent civilians and injured many more and also the bus bomb, at Mt. Lavinia.]

    Well done Peelamists!

    Congratulation in confirming again on the distinguished credentials as World`s No.1 Terrorists organization!

    History will judge Peelamists to be a `very special` race, differently evolved from the rest of the mankind.....An ugly scar in the face of humanity and scum of the earth!

    [ Negative image

    The LTTE may have made a name for itself through its armed struggle. But its strength is basically its destructive capacity and not constructive capability.

    In recent times, the LTTE has acquired a negative image internationally. The conscription of child soldiers, suicide killer attacks and the adoption of terrorist modes at times have given it a terrible reputation.

    Despite its impressive feats on the battlefront, the LTTE is isolated internationally. Some of the most powerful nations of the world, including the USA, India, Britain, Canada and the EU countries, have proscribed it as a terrorist organisation.

    Significantly, the LTTE does not enjoy support on a large scale even among the Tamils of India. There is sympathy for the Tamil plight but very little regard for the LTTE. The support of Tiger sympathisers like Nedumaran, Vaiko, etc., is negligible.

    It is in such a situation that the LTTE reaches 32 years in age. After decades of fighting that has debilitated and diminished the Tamil people, what are the concrete gains made by the LTTE in winning back the lost rights of the Tamil people?

    Death, displacement and destruction have enveloped the Tamil areas for many years. Despite all this suffering and sorrow undergone by the Tamil people, what has the LTTE achieved in its perennial quest for Tamil Eelam?

    Their redressing of valid Tamil grievances and the accommodation of legitimate Tamil aspirations is possible in two ways. One is through the arduous route of secession and the other is through equitable power sharing arrangements within a united but not necessarily unitary Sri Lanka.

    The LTTE, while paying lip service to the concept of a political solution, has sabotaged any worthwhile effort aimed at meaningful negotiations. It would have the Tamils believe that only Tamil Eelam can achieve results and that only the Tigers can quench this thirst for Tamil Eelam.

    The truth, however, is that the LTTE has many, many miles to go before it can ever hope to attain Tamil Eelam. Even then the quest is elusive as the odds are stacked effectively against it.

    It is like the search of a blind man for a black cat in a dark room. Only in this case, the cat is not there. Also, the Tamil people are made to pay a heavy price.

    All or nothing gamble

    Like a compulsive gambler, Prabhakaran has risked the entire existence of the Tamil people as a vibrant ethnicity in Sri Lanka for the elusive goal of Tamil Eelam. It is an all or nothing gamble for him.

    He is like an invading military general who burns his boats so that his soldiers have no choice other than to fight on for victory or face death. There is no turning back. If the soldiers win the war, the general will be praised for his steely determination. If they lose, there won t be anyone left to tell the tale.

    Ultimately the success or failure of the LTTE cannot be gauged by the size of its military assets or the destruction and losses inflicted upon the enemy. The proper criteria is to see how far the LTTE has progressed on its journey towards Tamil Eelam.

    In terms of a cost benefit ratio assessment, is the progress (if any) achieved commensurate to the heavy price being paid by the Tamil people?

    The ultimate political destination of the Tamil people can only be the full restoration of lost rights. The important question is whether the LTTE is on the right track.

    How long will the LTTE persist with its unrealistic quest for Tamil Eelam? How long must the powerless Tamil people suffer due to this protracted war?

    It is time for the 32-year-old LTTE to do some soul-searching.

    Nice story!

    when will this story teller pikku be released??

  • 7 May 2008 09:45:50 GMT

    Tigress,

    This `story` is in ALL the Sri Lankan papers this week. Go and read and find out.

    This particular article is from Bottomline.lk, an independent media group.

    However much you try to naively deny, this is the reality.

    That`s why majority of people in this country are well aware of the situation.

    That`s why LTTE`s banned in 32 countries and is the world No.1 terrorist group.

    Only people that are fooled are people like you who have probably never even set a foot in this country and have no idea what`s happening to them

    See what DBS Jeyraj has to say about your boys, if you don`t have the gigabites to decipher your self what`s happening
