    The methods used were pretty stupid.
    Sri Lanka is just like Northern Ireland in this matter. As long as there is a lot of killing, it only fuels further warfare. When the next generation of tamils grow up, they will revenge their killed fathers, cousins, older brothers, grandfathers, mothers and so on.

    Peaceful manipulation is really the only way of dealing with freedom fighters, unless you want to exterminate or deport an entire people, which would be the only other solution to the problem.

    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    (don't ask me what iota of good that will do to the dead)

    But, in the end, an 'internationally recognized' terrorist group is no more. Costs past.

    ETA was only labeled one with the help of a dictator. 800 compared to 50,000+???? They were there long before those smelly spaniards decided to show up with their embedded genes of oppression. The spanish, as a collective whole, were a terrorist group between 1900-the glorious death of franco. If not well before that. Givin their history, one could make the argument the 'inquisition' was quite oppressive within itself. i do, however, give king Carlos kudos for pullin the hell out. Now, if those smelly brits could pull (completely) out of Ireland, they too may also finally see the light.
    everyone uses every function about evenly. take NE for example. if there are those who don't use it much, then why are there such massive amounts of people constantly flowing through Wallmart with 20 items or less?

    Very true.


    But, to add, through their following actions, they get written in history as either celebrated 'winners' or villified opressors. We shall see. And, depends on who is retelling the history.

    Yep. There is no single view of history. Even if those in power now think they are writing the SL army into posterity as justified and victorious, who is to say that this won't change as the atrocities come to light, as the discrimination still continues and the victory may or may not lead to a lasting peace? If victory was the only criterion for being celebrated, Napoleon Bonaparte would be canonized by now

    I think the sentiment was, we're kinda sick of this 20+years of war...fuck it, we're gonna corner them ALL together...and nuke 'em!

    they have BBC, CNN and 200 more media channels going around supporting their actions. hard luck for the Irish. But i have to admit i hardly know anything which is happening there.

    but i sure know this -

    when England and USA goes and INVADE countries they are the good guys, but when Asians go and DEFEND their countries from terrorists they are HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS.

    in sri lankas case it is most apparent. USA didn't give a damm abt sri lankas situation. but ENGLAND..................... man they are so concerned abt us asians aren't they.

    maybe they should leave Ireland 1st and apologize to all 100 odd countries they invaded in the past 200 years.
