Congratulations Sri Lanka!

Congratulations Sri Lanka for eradicating terrorism from the soil of this great nation. It is the bravery and the sacrifices of many unsung heroes and heroines of all backgrounds that made this day possible. You have fought and won a battle not only against the ruthless terrorists head on, but also a war against the dark, unseen forces of international terrorism. You have succeeded where the rich, powerful nations with multi-billion dollar budgets and high tech weaponry have failed. You have jumped over all the hoops, obstacles and accusation that have been thrown at you, and you brought victory while saving the lives of innocent people that have been used as a human shield by the cowardly terrorists. Be proud of your achievements, but also be humble, for our victory came at a cost. As Sri Lankans, we must forgive those who transgressed against us and work towards a United Sri Lanka. We now have to work towards building a country that we can truly be proud of. It is up to all of us, Sinhalese, Tamil, Moslems and others alike, to put our past and our differences behind us and work together, to look to the future with with the determination to make this nation live up to its full promise. Let us stand as one people of one country and be united so that no dark forces can ever divide us, ever again.

Washington wants to reward Terrorists???

Living in the comforts of Western countries, the Diaspora Tamils have abandoned the true victims of LTTE's brutal dictatorship; its own poor and innocent Tamils living the nightmare under the dictatorial leadership of Prabhakaran, the equivalent of Osama Bin Laden in Sri Lanka's war against terror. While the higher caste Tamils have become the spokesman for the world's most ruthless terrorist movement (FBI link) organizing rallies, fund raising events around the world, and practicing extortion to provide the terrorists with weapons to commit unspeakable atrocities, the poor and innocent Tamils have had the misfortune of living under a ruthless dictatorial leader and suffer unspeakable horrors as evidenced by "A long match! Freedom from the Tyranny "

Here is a video announcing the ban of The World Tamil Movement in Canada and an interview with John Tomson of McKenzie Institute discussing the extortion techniques and manipulation of the politicians.

The Humanitarian Disaster that the LTTE has caused in Sri Lanka by taking hostage of their own Tamil people to be used as a Human Shield can be witnessed here in the Al Jazeera video. Yet the likes of Hilary Clinton, not only want to allow the terrorists to escape, but also wants to reward the terrorists by giving into their demands.

Here is a quote from the Washington Times editorial that discusses the hurdles imposed by the US Secretary of State Hilary Clinton in allowing the terrorist leaders to escape.

"The Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, one of the world's most violent terrorist outfits, are surrounded in northern Sri Lanka and about to be destroyed - but Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and European self-styled peacemakers are getting in the way of victory. The meddlers should let Colombo finish off this menace."

Having suffered the 911 events on US soil, followed by the two US led wars outside the country in its quest to destroy the terrorist movement, this double speak from Washington is unbelievable. The atrocities of al Quaeda seems like small potatoes, or rather, minuscule peanuts when compared to the atrocities of the LTTE. Yet, Hillary Clinton wants to allow the terrorist leaders to escape.

"We can only imagine American satisfaction if we had al Qaeda in this position. It is unconscionable for the United States to castigate its Sri Lankan ally for prevailing in its war against terrorism. The Tamil Tigers have purposefully created the conditions for a humanitarian crisis and deserve neither amnesty nor mercy. There are ways to help resolve this standoff that will not allow the Tigers to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, such as providing military and intelligence support for pinpoint strikes against the terrorist leadership. Failing that, the Obama administration should mind its own business. The Sri Lankans are winning; we should let them finish the job." -- Washington Times EDITORIAL: Tigers at bay

Here are the views of the British Parliamentarian Hon. Lord Naseby who visited Sri Lanka.

Here is another interesting perspective on Sri Lanka and LTTE terrorists Paul Harris on LTTE

So, what is behind Hilary Clinton's agenda in allowing the Tamil terrorists to escape? Are we to expect a similar situation if Osama Bin Laden is found and cornered?
