    The president`s men know that the SLDF is going to lose the war in the North and the IC is tightening its noose round the neck.

    This is the testimony that the president loses support among the electorates. He probably knows that an attack by LTTE to chase the army from the North will explode his claim of winning the war. He wants to capitalise his fortune during the honeymoon period. President Bush won his second term at the end of the 4th year, had he contested an year later he would have lost as the body bags increased.

    The IC is losing patience with the appalling human records of this govt that is reluctant to investigate any of the cases. Not a single culprit was brought to justice during the last 2.5 years of murders, abductions and disappearances.

    THE WALL STREET JOURNAL: There Is a Military Solution to Terror

    [

    Sadr City in Baghdad, the northeastern districts of Sri Lanka and the Guaviare province of Colombia have little in common culturally, historically or politically. But they are crucial reference points on a global map in which long-running insurgencies suddenly find themselves on the verge of defeat.

    ...

    In Sri Lanka, a military offensive by the government of President Mahinda Rajapaksa has wrested control of seven of the nine districts previously held by the rebel group LTTE, better known as the Tamil Tigers. Mr. Rajapaksa now promises victory by the end of the year, even as the Tigers continue to launch high-profile terrorist attacks.

    All this is good news in its own right. Better yet, it explodes the mindless shibboleth that there is `no military solution` when it comes to dealing with insurgencies. On the contrary, it turns out that the best way to end an insurgency is, quite simply, to beat it.

    ...
