I don't know if you actullay read that article before you posted it but here are some quotes from it:

"What is liberation and freedom to the LTTE is terrorism to the government and its fighting formations. So the latter sends scores of young soldiers brainwashed in the national sentiment/desire - a kind of liberation also - to the battlefield."

"The country has been run by emergency regulations for a very, very long time. In essence, Sri Lankans have lost a lot of civic rights and freedoms in search of a solution to the conflict via the war path. Some would say this is not something they choose. War was thrust upon them. There is some truth to this also. But the ground realities cannot be denied.

The count of dead bodies in the present phase of war will continue into hundreds and thousands. Until one side overcomes the other this will continue. Or else, the low intensity war will continue for another decade or more. It will be like a sea-saw. One day it moves that way, the next day it moves this way. Along with its movement, it will carry the precious young lives of many irrespective of one's ethnicity - as did during the Tsunami. One day one group will enjoy the fruits of their missions; the next day the other group will enjoy the fruits of their missions. Next month or year, all will have lost their lives and no smiles in their faces."

It's a very thought provoking article, although I doubt you read it.

You just do not understand what I am trying to tell you. Maybe one day, years in the future, you will reflect and finally understand my meaning.

You are heading for disappointment if you think bloodshed will ever bring a lasting peace.

HOT NEWS:

Infantry formations of the Sri Lanka Army (SLA)’s 57 and 58 divisions have entered Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE)’s celebrated political capital; Kilinochchi.

Pitched battles have been raging across the town’s western, southern and south western borders since the 23rd this month.

By the 27th, troops had made inroads into the town by breaching the earth bund spreading from western to the southern borders of Kilinochchi,

despite heavy LTTE resistance and bad weather conditions.

Since then small groups of SLA commandos and intelligence units have been operating inside Kilinochchi town.

Well..... well....
The war is over now.
We saw the character of mr. Ranil & his tritors party.
Alimankada = pamankada.
Kilinochchi = madawachchi.

The traitors party had less than 20% results for the election of NW province. Lol

But our village people voted tritors party. Coz our village is a muslim village. They told us to vote that party too. Huh. Lol 20%:-D
